    TWRP rolled out upgrades to ver. 3.1.0

    TWRP (TeamWin Recovery Project), the most popular custom recovery for Android announced TWRP v3.1.0 on Mar 10, 2017. It allows us to backup and restore your device partitions, easily flash new ROMs, and perform other tasks. TWRP 3.1 builds are now available for all supported devices, and the update brings a few new features and many bug fixes.

    The most notable improvement in TWRP 3.1 is the new ADB backup support, which allows you to backup and restore any partitions (that TWRP can recognize) from your computer. There are several more features and bug fixes listed below.

    What’s new in 3.1.0-0:

    • vold decrypt on a few select HTC devices, TWRP will now attempt to use the system partition’s vold and vdc binaries and libraries to decrypt the data partition (nkk71 and CaptainThrowback)
