Since FP Open OS comes with TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) preinstalled I wanted to gather experiences and talk about the possibilities and limitations of TWRP.
From what I have tested so far, TWRP can:
- Make a full backup of the phone. (Way more powerful than even Titanium Backup)
- Except it won’t back up media.
- Restore a full backup in one step.
- Perform a Hard Reset (“Wipe”) with advanced options.
- Standard Setting doesn’t wipe Media.
What it can’t do:
- Perform scheduled backups
- If you run into an issue with your phone, want to perform a wipe and don’t have a recent backup, creating a backup will probably also backup the issue.
