The official TWRP app is the first and only first-party app developed by Team Win for TWRP. Please bear with us as we work to fix any bugs and build out the features. The initial version of the app does not support flashing on the Pixel due to the Pixel’s A/B partition layout. In addition, the app may not support finding and flashing images from external storage locations. We are working hard to improve these items and bring you more new features.Download Links:
Official TWRP App is the official app developed by Team Win, that lets you make sure you stay up to date with the new versions of your personalized ROM. In order to install it directly from the app, however, you need to have root privileges.
The app is pretty simple to use thanks to its clean interface but it’s not recommended to ‘play around’ with it if you’re not exactly sure what you’re doing , since you could seriously harm your device. At any rate, the app tells you this itself the first time you open it.
Official TWRP App makes it significantly easier to install a recovery on your Android. You just have to search for your device on the list, download it, and install it. The whole process takes only a few minutes to complete.
We recommend downloading the app from the Play Store.
If you do not have Play Store access, you may download the Official TWRP App here:

How do I use the app?
When you first open the app, you will be greeted by a few options. First, you will need to agree not to hold us responsible for anything that happens to your device while using the app. You may also grant the app root permissions. The app will work without root, but some functionality like image flashing will be disabled. Lastly, you can opt into enabling InsightCore (more on this feature later).
Once you have passed this initial screen, you will be greeted with the app home screen where you can choose TWRP FLASH or NETWORK STATISTICS (more on the network statistics later). On the TWRP FLASH screen you will need to select a device. Once you have selected a device, the app will periodically check for new TWRP versions for the device that you have selected. The default interval is once per day, but you can tap on the settings icon in the upper-right to change the interval or disable the update check entirely.
If you enabled root access, you will see options for selecting an image and buttons for flashing the selected image to boot or recovery. Note that you should flash TWRP images to recovery. The boot image flashing is for flashing full boot images (not just kernel zImages) and should not be used for flashing TWRP.What is InsightCore or Network Statics?
The Official TWRP App does not require root to perform version checking, however, additional features are available such as image flashing if you grant root permissions.
Currently the app is only able to flash images from internal storage. We will add the ability to use additional storage locations very soon!
We will be developing additional features in the near future, so check back often!
Please do not ask us to add TWRP support for your device. We simply do not have access to all of the devices or the developer resource to port your device for you. You can port your own device here.
