TWRP Custom Recovery made its own way into the latest flagship device of Samsung. If you have already bought a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge it’s time to start customizing it by installing a Custom Recovery. Every Android phone has a Recovery installed by default but comparing with a custom one such as TWRP the default Recovery is a “shit”. It has less options.
TWRP Recovery is probably the best you can find and the latest build of it include many features. It comes with USB Mas Storage support, USB OTG, ADB, MTP support, SELinux support and much more. The build of TWRP you are going to find here supports as well Marshmallow firmware so it means you don’t have time to lose but instead go install it right away on your phone.
The main reason we use Custom Recoveries is that it allows you to flash things, such as MODs, ROMs and other zip files that can make changes to your system. Also all the Custom Recoveries has the option to make a Nandroid backup which it the best backup for your phone. It’s very easy to backup and restore a Nandroid backup. So don’t lose time and go ahead to install TWRP on your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge.
- Please note that the version of the TWRP Recovery you are going to find here works only on the SM-G930F variant of Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 chipset, on SM-G935F/FD/X and in the Canadian SM-G935W8 Exynos S7 Edge.
