TWRP, the most popular and subjectively the best custom recovery available for Android at the moment, supports an insane number of devices at the moment (one of the reasons why it's one of our recommended methods of root in our Android root guide), and the number continues to grow by the day. Today, a number of new devices, including low-mid range devices from Samsung, LG and ASUS, are all getting the TWRP treatment.
The list of new phones that have received TWRP are listed below. Take a look to see if there are any you recognise– and if your phone is on the list, joy to you:
- BQ Aquarius U2 (yamcha)
- BQ Aquaris V (nappa)
- ASUS Zenfone 4 Max (X00I)
- LG G4c (c90)
- Samsung Galaxy A3 Duos (a33g)
- Lenovo K53 (karatep).
As Android Police rightly pointed out, it's worth taking note of the range of devices who have recieved the TWRP treatment. There's quite the mix of older and newer hardware – for instance, while the ASUS Zenfone 4 Max was only announced two months ago, the Galaxy A3 Duos is a 3 year old device. The range of manufacturers is also apparently; from heavyweights like LG and Samsung to new players like BQ, it seems TWRP does not distinguish between the giants and the dwarves. Nevertheless, we're happy to see that TWRP compatability continues to increase and that no device, no matter how old, is being left behind.
What do you guys think? Do you own any of these devices? If you do, will you be trying out TWRP on them? Let us know in the comments, or post over on the forums with your thoughts.
