    Sounds like you're on CM10 which installs it as a system app. You can either use something like Root Explorer to just delete it from /system/app... or you can use Tibu to uninstall it.

    I mean you don't have to stress it.. you can leave it installed even if you're not using it, won't hurt anything. I absolutely hate that CM installs it automatically. Hate having that app on my phone

    Yep. The play store knows I have it because it tells me there is an update.

    I'm a big fan of TWRP!

    It's easy to navigate and has been running smoothly for me ever since I installed it on my phone.

    Lot's of good info here. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I'm a new rooted (rooted and flashed for the first time 2 or 3 weeks ago. I had planned to use CWM because I just heard it discussed a lot more than TWRP, but I ended up using TWRP because the dev of the specific ROM I wanted to flash recommended TWRP with that ROM, so I've never used CWM. I have been very happy with TWPR. It's really easy.

    Hopefully it's not installed as a system app. If that's the case, use Root Explorer and go get it manually .

    Plus, TWRP is sexier than CWM

    TWRP and here's exactly why. The other night I was about to flash a new rom and synced and backed everything up before going into CWR. Once there I wiped the whole system and somehow must have dozed off and hit reboot system without flashing the new rom. TWRP must have realized I had no rom installed and prevented my phone from rebooting. I woke up noticed what happened, pulled the battery and got into CWR and reinstalled the rom. I can't say that CWM would have done this and save me from potential disaster.

    Nervous, perhaps--but it is necessary 100% of the time...unless you're just flashing a kernel/theme/etc.

    Don't do format data, select wipe data/ factory reset, should be above the option you clicked.

    2def-- thanks got it wiped installing rom and gapps now... I have never done the batch install of zips, is it safe? I still do it 1 at a time.

    I also hate how longggg it takes for a new rom boot, I get nervous. funny boot ani with euro cm flashback to the old Atari days.

    PS- was doing the apps download manually (suxs) and under myapps it lists superSU, do I need this I remember the name changed and it should be in the ROM now correct?

    Yeah it's fine, I line up my ROM and Gapps in the queue all the time, it's one of the cool things about TWRP

    With the Roms and gapps, is there a combo that will auto download the apps for you?
    I went with 7-26 signed this time. will have to give it a shot next time, setting up the phone once again, lol!

    I haven't figured out ... sometimes the play store auto-restores your apps and sometimes it doesn't. Anyone have any insight?

    Regarding the gapps version, I'd make sure to check with the dev of your ROM to see if there is a version that they recommend. I've seen devs sometimes recommend a specific gapps version (because that's what they testing it with I assume).

    So, I installed TWRP on my Touchpad via Goo Manager and so far don't see the benefits over ClockworkMod Touch. It is cool because it is something different but for the little bit I do in the recovery either one seems to fit the bill.

    BTW I really like Goo Manager for a quick access point to Goo.im. I downloaded the recent CM nightly for the TP and flashed it via TWRP, easy stuff.

    TRWP seems good, but I am fine with CMR. Never had an issue. Regardless of the functioning recovery you use, just use it correctly and all should be fine. Don't use ROM manager, and make sure you know the right methods if you flash kernels. As for one is "better" than the other? Meh, comes down to personal preference, and experience.

    Just use it correctly.
