RELEASE
TWRP v2.7.1.0

New release (v2.7.1.0 20140629) of TWRP Recovery for Galaxy Core is here!

Compatible with both i8260 and i8262!

We have never seen device as bugged as Galaxy Core, and we had a great troubles with porting our TWRP. But finally it’s there.

You can get it from our download page and flash it under Odin.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! We have discovered that Galaxy Core is affected by infamous Samsung EMMC bug and BY THE TIME WE ARE WRITING THIS NEWS our recovery is the only one for Galaxy Core which is not affected. By using the other recoveries (Phillz or CWM – especially Factory Reset/Wipe/Format feature) you are risking a hard-brick of your device. Also that’s why we provide only Odin package for now, because flashing anything using your current recoveries might cause hard-brick!

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free πŸ˜‰

Changelog:

  • first fully working and bugfree recovery for Galaxy Core!

I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors πŸ˜‰
Thanks.

Thanks for job made by TWRP team.

Hello!

As you might have heard, Google has just announced Android L (it will be called Lollipop as HTC has accidentally leaked).

Google is about to release beta/preview releases to Nexus devices right now, but the final version will be released a few months later.

Probably Nexus 4 unfortunately WON’T GET THIS UPDATE, but you don’t have to worry πŸ™‚ In the day Google releases final version, as well as theΒ source code, we will begin our work to bring the most recent Android to NovaFusion supported devices, beginning with S3 Mini.

Regards
