    Source/Link:
    Credit: qbking77 & TeamWin

    Great recovery, all based on safe features as CWM but in Touch Screen only form! No more using your volume and power buttons... All touch screen ... Worth trying out, you might never go back....

    Nice job Team Win & qbking for the flashable...

    I'm using this recovery and its awesome... Didn't think I would like it at first but now I can't see why I would go back to using my volume & power buttons to do it.

    Before you ask, yes there are flashable zips available to return to CWM if you choose to go back or you could just reapply the CWM recovery via fastboot/adb on with your computer.

    Hmmmmmmm. HMMMMMM. Hmmmmmm. I don't know. I like the touch screen; but, I kinda don't like the way it looks. lol. Does this work with your CWM backups?

    Edit: I moved my "Backup" folder from my "clockwork" folder into the "twrp" folder and they didn't show up. Not sure how this looks for files. Whether they go into a separate folder or are just there.

    Did anyone use the fastboot method? I did and realized it's been so long since I've done it I almost forgot how. Ahaha.

    I don't know. It's cool; but, somethings off for me.

    No it doesn't support your CWM backups...
    There is a bit of a work around, takes a bit of work but if your that worried about pulling in some previous Nandroid Backups you would have to do the following...

    First go to the link below and grab one of following flashable zips from the thread below. This will restore a slightly modified versions of your original CWM.


    Then after you reboot your recovery and your back on CWM then you can restore your backup you want to transfer, go back into CWM and flash over to this TWRP recovery and make a backup there of your ROM...

    Rinse/Wash/Repeat... I know its some work but that is the only way I think it can be done. Sometimes you have to give a little to have something new and cool...

    Perfect opportunity for me to switch over so I can back up on this lovely stable build of ICS v40 running GlaDOS on the new recovery. I guess we'll see!

    I just went back and forth between twrp and cwm about 4 times each converting my 4 favorite backups from cwm to twrp. If you use the file compression option in twrp, you will save about 200 mb per backup and it really isn't too much difference in time. Maybe a little longer to back up but about the same time to restore.

    Yeah... I made the switch for the long haul. No looking back now.

    If you check at XDA in the themes/app section there is a thread or two with custom themes for TWRP.... Very easy to install too...

    All you do is download the theme, its in a zip package (dont extract it)

    Rename the downloaded theme to ui.zip

    Place it in a folder you need to make inside TWRP on your sdcard.

    So you will have...

    /sdcard/TWRP/theme/ui.zip

    That is the final outcome... Next time you reboot into TWRP the theme will be active... to remove it just delete the ui.zip

    There is a few to choose from.. I'm running the ICS themed TWRP......

    I just received my NS4G yesterday, and rooted it, and flashed TWRP (1.1), via the 1 click tool, Version 4.0. I went to make a nandroid of my phone, and when it was attempting to make a backup of the system partition, it errored out, saying there wasn't enough space available. I have roughly 13gb free on my storage partition, so I wanted to see if anyone else has had that issue, and what was done to get around that issue. I did put a check in the backup android_secure option, so maybe it was going to try to backup my entire SD card....
