    Default Re: CWM vs. TWRP

    I switched I could no longer take staring at the small text and then trying to scroll with the volume buttons, the old eyes are not what they use to be, lol. the touch screen and easy to read fonts make this a nicer option IMHO.

    I switched to TWRP a week ago after tring the newest CWM release. Cant believe what I was missing. Much better UI, and I love the fact that you can queue different zip installations. At first I was skeptical of the queuing feature, but it's worked great three times now, so I'm a fan.

    Speaking of being able to queue multiple zips, I also like that feature for the rom and gapps. However, I was in the habit of flashing a rom and re-wiping cache and davlik before flashing gapps. Is that unnecessary?

    I'm another recently converted TWRP fan. Can't believe I waited this long.

    So I am hooked on TWRP, is there a clean way to remove CWM completely from the phone, do I just goto settings-app- and than uninstall.

    The goomanager app available in the market will flash it for you as well I believe.

    Is that the "InstallOpenRecoveryScript" from the menu dropdown or a different option in goomanager?

    Yup, that's the right option. It'll then download TWRP and flash it for you.

    So I've been using ROM Manager and CWM Touch, currently on the latest BB ROM. Can I just uninstall ROM Manager and install Goo and flash TWRP and be good to go for future backups and flashing, or do I need to do something else to make the transition safe?

    You will be good to go but just be aware you won't be able to restore any old backups that you made with ROM manager without ROM manager installed.

    can we install TWRP to a "new" phone for flashing? Wife got a new GNx, I want to wait a few days to make sure the phone is not a flake before I root and unlock.
    so when I read the instruction to unlock and root, where it says to install ROM manger am I ok to just install TWRP?
    I also might be looking for some help its been awhile since I did the basics, will use WUGS but always like to now someone is out there to help.

    You certainly can. And you don't need wugs BTW... it's easy enough to just do it manually... which you should know how to do in the event of a mishap.

    Once your drivers are setup on your computer (they probably already are since you used wugs last time) all you need to do are a couple fastboot commands, some adb commands, and a few reboots.

    The entire process literally takes less than ten minutes.

    If that interests you, we can continue... although I'm at work right now and may not be able to follow up in a timely manner, lol

    What Oxy said... there's no 'rulebook' that says you need to use CWM at all. I flashed TWRP on my Nexus 7 first thing after unlocking it, never even considered CWM, lol You'll be fine

    Can someone comment on if it is worth the $6 for ROM manager premium for updating rom? Or is it easier to do it manually? Also, do I need to wipe all data and clear All cache before updating to newer version?

    Its absolutely NOT worth it. Do things manually in recovery, its something you should get comfortable with

    Updating to a new version of the same ROM you can sometimes to a dirty flash = wipe caches and wipe system. If you run into bugs or issues you probably need to do a full wipe, as in wipe data/factory reset as well.

    How do I uninstall ROM manager? When I select it from my app drawer the only option is "app info"
