Tinkerers and modders who desire the Galaxy S5 for its hardware but with very little interest in Samsung's bloatware now have a fighting chance. The latest 2.7 version of the Team Win Recovery Project, better known as TWRP, is now available for Galaxy S5 devices of the "klte" variant.
TWRP rose through the ranks at a time when Clockwork Recovery or CWM was seemingly stagnating in terms of new features, primary among them being the lack of a touch-based interface. Although Koushik "Koush" Dutta is back to developing CWM, he has also signified that he doesn't really want to take CWM beyond the simple and focused recovery that it is. This leaves TWRP a bigger room to grow.
