Do you have a OnePlus X or a Honor 5X device? If you do, you must like nice-looking smartphones with affordable prices and mid-range specs. Now, you can also safely flash custom ROMs on them because Team Win Recovery Project has offered official support to both devices. If you want, you can download the TWRP recovery images for the devices from the source links below. The devices were chosen to get official support because the Android community usually gravitates towards a certain type of smartphone: mid-range, good looking and with great performance. These two manage to fit into every category. Since there are so many devices on the market at the moment, it is impossible to offer official support to all of them, therefore these two are pretty lucky to get any support at all. It may be the case that they did get TWRP support because OnePlus X is gaining some momentum on the US market while Honor 5X is just entering the market. If your phone is already rooted, you can install the TWRP via the official app. If not, you can get the images from the web and install via fastboot with the help of your PC.

The NVIDIA SHIELD tablet finally received TWRP support today. After a year and a half of usage, Nvidia’s tablet is finally getting some Team Win Recovery project support, even if it did manage to satisfy people’s Android experience on a larger screen for a while without any software changes. You could always choose another version of custom recovery to flash if you really wanted a different experience, but nothing compares to the real deal. The tablet lost some of its awesomeness already, so you can have fun with it much easier and light-heartedly now. Although the SHIELD K1 tablet is basically the same thing with some minor changes, we are not sure if this support will work for it. K1 is also one of the best tablets on the market with great Android support. Source: TWRP

Happy flashing! Source: TWRP HTC, TWRP LG G3, TWRP Optimus Fuel
TWRP support is now available for the Sony Xperia Z2. Most Android enthusiasts get to a point in life where their only desire is to mod their device, flash a custom ROM or tinker about, and they can’t do that safely without a custom recovery. The Team Win Recovery Project (which is what TWRP means) is probably the best solution out there, and now it offers support to Sony’s Xperia Z2. TWRP helps users back up their device so that any ROMs or ZIP files flashed will not render it unusable in the future. Considering the fact that novice devs and modders usually get into trouble, backing up everything on your smartphone or tablet before tinkering is the best and most recommended option. The image file from TWRP can be flashed by using a fastbot and you will find more instructions on the devs page HERE!
