    First touch recovery experience ever...awesome! The touch response in recovery feels much better than it does during normal use of my phone. Nothing is too big or too small. I love the advance wipe options too. Works super fast for making a restore point, I haven't tried using a backup yet, or formatting, though I'm willing to bet its just as fast. Only 2 discrepancies I found, which are not in anyway a big deal towards operation, zip+thread says version 2.7, however the internal version states 2.6.3. (so not a big deal) The other, is the touch options for the back button and home button are a little redundant, as it does recognize the normal hardware for these. (I'm guessing these being there has or had something to do with testing.) Final note, absolutely love it, never going back. :D

    I'm not sure if you're referring to something I'm not aware of, but as far as I can tell its there. Under the mounts tab. I can mount and unmount my sd card no problem. Had no issue backing up to the sd card either.

    Would like to make note to anyone else who has never used TWRP as opposed to CWM...
    Dont try to restore cwm backups! They are not cross compatible.
    On the subject at hand, TWRP is amazing! I have it on all of my devices and glad to finally have it on my AWE. Great job phenom!

    +1 one mounts and formats data, cache and system quickly and efficiently. Performance comparable to my Nexus. I couldn't be more pleased with this release. Well done Phenom.
