Many-a-times, smartphones with great hardware are flanked with limiting software experience and this primarily why communities like ours thrive. Thanks to the efforts of thousands of independent developers and contributors, users who wish to achieve more with their smartphones can use tailored modification tools like custom ROMs, kernels, etc. To get started with the process of flashing a custom tool, custom recoveries are vital and TWRP is one of the most reputed names in this domain. While TWRP is open-source and we often see unofficial support for a host of smartphones, the developers of the custom recovery have now added official support for three devices – Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, and HTC Desire 12+, opening doors to a wide range of opportunities for customizations.
Redmi Note 7 Pro is among the best and the most popular value-for-money smartphones. But despite the great hardware, a lot of people do not seem to enjoy MIUI while some others are concerned about the overwhelming number of ads. Our forums for the smartphone are already brimming with custom ROMs and if you’ve been waiting to get your hands dirty with one, you can get started by downloading TWRP.
The declining market for Android tablets has not deterred Samsung from continuing its Galaxy Tab series further, and the Galaxy Tab S4 is among the better ones of its army of tablets. Besides the standard Android interface in the portrait mode, it sports a desktop mode while flipped to the landscape orientation which is great for those who like to accomplish more on the go. If you don’t like the software experience or want to root your Galaxy Tab S4, official TWRP support is something you’ll be thankful for.
Lastly, official TWRP for the last year’s HTC Desire 12+ should also redeem you from the eerie Sense UI that is installed on the phone. At present, there’s limited development related to the smartphone on our forums but TWRP’s generosity might inspire other developers to bring support for the otherwise decent hardware which includes a Snapdragon 450 chipset and 3GB of RAM.
