Team Win’s TWRP recovery comes with more features than you’ll probably ever use. In the early custom recovery days, it was all about Koush’s ClockworkMod recovery. While it is still many people’s favorite recovery, the masses generally have flocked toward TWRP recovery instead, thanks to its touch-based user interface. With the touch user interface, we can physically tap buttons on the mobile device’s display when it is running the TWRP custom recovery, With CWM recovery ,we cannot do that. All button scrolling and confirming is done with the Volume buttons and the Power button. While it seems a bit outdated, it’s still a custom recovery that lets you do everything you need.
