Team Win Recovery Project build available for Verizon’s HTC One M7

A new official Team Win Recovery Project build is now available for the Verizon-sold HTC One M7. Even if Verizon has a strong bootloader policy and it discourages its customers from rooting and modifying their devices, the inevitable happens and devs find a way to make locked phones unlock.

Last year’s HTC One had some S-Off available since October 2013 and the Sunshine software tool managed to take care of the more recent software builds. Now the official TWRP is available for the One M7.

Flashers can now take this build from the TWRP site, but beware in searching for the Verizon HTC One M7 as other unlocked and carrier versions are different from this CDMA version.

The Verizon HTC One version has an active ROM and root community and, ever since last year, we’ve been seeing modified stock builds and some builds made from scratch as well successfully hitting the device. The Verizon HTC One M8 has an available TWRP build as well, and you can check it HERE.

Team Win recovery project update 2.8 – new features, new functionality

Team Win recovery project launches its version 2.8 and now the most popular custom recovery option for ROM enthusiasts gives more options than ever. Not much is changed on the outside, but on the inside you will find new features you will love if you are a ROM enthusiast.

TWRP now uses C++ based MTP implementation to give users the possibility of transferring files on microSD and emulated storage as well. New command line options were added and users can execute features via adb instead of using the touchscreen. Recovery now supports 1440×2560, 320×320 and 280×280 screen resolutions.

In version 2.8 you can find the following new features:

  • Add MTP support to recovery thanks mostly to bigbiff with a little help from Dees_Troy
  • Add command line capabilities – you can now execute various TWRP features via adb instead of the touchscreen
  • Add support for color in the console and give error, warning, and highlight lines different colors
  • Track backup and restore progress based on file sizes to provide a much more accurate indication of progress
  • Improve handling of /misc thanks to mdmower
  • Improve setting of time on Qualcomm devices thanks to [NUT]
  • Allow using images on slidervalue GUI objects thanks to Tassadar
  • Allow using variables and addition and subtraction in variables for easier theming
  • Add support for 1440×2560, 280×280, and 320×320 resolutions and update 240×240
  • Allow ui.xml file to include additional xml files to help break up the theme and make TWRP easier to maintain
  • Other minor fixes and improvements

 

In order to get the new version running on your device, you can download the appropriate image to your PC or laptop, reboot your phone in fastboot mode and flash the file over a USB connection. It so happens that recovery builds can cause problems when you install new ROMs so proceed at your own risk!
