----------------------------- THIS APP REQUIRES ROOT ACCESS ----------------------------- PLEASE READ BEFORE RATING THIS APP! DESCRIPTION: This app allows you to Install, Backup, Restore, and Wipe your device all using TWRP. We use OpenRecoveryScript to complete these actions. Your device will reboot into TWRP, accomplish the selected tasks and then reboot back to Android. Any issues or errors within the recovery should be addressed with Team Win. We do not make the recovery and cannot support anything beyond our apps. Tools in the app: - Install Recovery: This allows you to install the recovery for supported devices. Not all devices will be supported and giving us a low rating will not change that. We can only add what Team Win provides. - Install: This allows you to flash zips. When you use this option, the app will reboot the recovery, flash the zip and then reboot back to Android. - Backup: There are two types of backups in this app. Classic backups reboot to the recovery and complete the backup as normal before rebooting to Android. Live Backup (paid feature) backs up your phone while you are still using it. This is a very unique feature and saves on down time and increases the amount of time you spend in Android. - Restore: Restores work like classic backups to where the app will reboot into the recovery and complete the restore before rebooting into Android. - Partitions: The app scans the available partitions and gives you a list. You can then backup an image of the partition in case there are issues in the future. This is useful for backing up your EFS partition as well as boot and recovery. There is an option to remove ads to help support our company. It's only $0.99 and helps keep us running so that we can provide the core app for free.
