Exynos-Powered Galaxy Note 7 Gets TWRP Support

TWRP has emerged as one of the best custom recovery systems available for Android, it stands for TeamWin Recovery Project, and is a necessary piece of software needed for flashing ROMs, kernels and just tinkering with your Android device. TWRP already supports a variety of smartphones, and today, they added a slew of new ones. Of course the headlining smartphone to get support is the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It's worth noting that this is the Exynos variant and not the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820-powered Galaxy Note 7 that is sold in the US, Canada and other countries.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 WiFi, Galaxy J7, and the Xiaomi Mi Max Pro have also gotten support for TWRP. Adding to the long list of devices that support the custom recovery. Those that flash custom ROMs likely know all about TWRP. It allows you to replace the recovery that is stock on your smartphone or tablet, and do things like a nandroid backup (which backs up the entire ROM, including all of your data), as well as flashing new custom ROMs, kernels and much more. It's the most common tool that tinkerers use to play around with their smartphone. It's one of the things that everyone loves about Android, and it's not hard to see why.

While the Galaxy Note 7 is still fairly new, having only been released last week in the US and a few other countries, it's still great to see it getting support for TWRP so soon. This means that the development scene is going to explode pretty soon. It is a bit surprising to see that it supports the Exynos model and not the Snapdragon 820 model, seeing as Exynos-powered devices usually have all sorts of issues with getting the bootloader unlocked and just overall development. So it is a step in the right direction, for those that are in a country where the Exynos-powered Galaxy Note 7 is sold in place of the Snapdragon 820 model.
