Install TWRP Recovery 2.3.1.1 On Galaxy Note 2 N7100 - Samsung Update

The New Stuff

Samsung Update

TWRP Recovery is a custom recovery developed by Team Win with fine attention to the ease of use. It is basically an alternative for CWM Recovery, another custom recovery. They are specially designed for Android devices but their main usage is when you want to flash a custom ROM on your device. There isn’t a different use between the two custom recoveries, sometimes they are both suitable for what you want to do and you just have to choose what custom recovery to use.

Galaxy Note 2 N7100 is a new device, as you all know. It was just released, and developers are intensely involved in coming up with new custom firmwares and applications. Now, Team Win has come up with TWRB 2.3.1.1 that works really fine with the Note 2 N7100.

Here are some key features that TWRB presents:

- Touchscreen driven UI. This means that you don’t need to use the volume buttons and power buttons anymore.

- SDcard saved settings. They remain intact after rebooting

- Choose between partitions to backup and restore

- Onscreen keyboard

- You can choose to compress backups

Before proceeding with the installation make sure you have a Galaxy Note 2 N7100 device because it may note work on other devices. Also make sure you follow the instructions carefully because if something happens to your device we cannot be held responsible for it.

Enable USB Debugging by going to Settings-Developer options-debugging and checking USB Debugging.
