March 26, 2015 - Written By John Anon

For those of you interested in rooting, custom ROMs and features then you will know that a good and solid custom recovery is essential. Not only does these custom recoveries make it easy to install certain aftermarket custom features, zip files and ROMs via internal storage installation (flashing), but they also make it much easier to make sure you are covered for when things go wrong, with a thorough backing up feature. These custom backups are essential for the times when things do not go to plan and offer users the ability to roll back their device to a time before they installed that ROM, feature or add-on.

Well, one of the most popular custom recoveries available is TeamWin Recovery Project or TWRP for short. If you are already a TWRP user then you will know the benefits of this recovery option. That said, you also might like to know that TWRP has received an update today bringing it up to version 2.8.6.0.

In terms of the update, there is nothing too major included which is an absolute must. However, the update does include a number of smaller and just as important bug fixes. These include a fix for USA and Europe daylight saving time rules. There is also a number of keyboard improvements and the inclusion of pattern style passwords for decrypt. As well as an update for the AOSP base to 5.1.
