What is TWRP recovery?
TWRP stands for TeamWin Recovery Project. It’s an open-source custom recovery image for Android-based devices that provides a GUI/touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to perform functions often unsupported by the stock Android recovery.
Is TWRP same for all devices?
No, it’s not. TWRP is different for each device and can’t be compatible. Although similar devices with same specs and CPU can have a TWRP ported from one to the other without much issues.
Is TWRP an Open Source project?
Yes, TWRP is an open-source, community project. They also have a large support community with many people who are willing to answer questions and help people with their devices either through our IRC channel or on forums like xda-developers.
Is TWRP safe?
Yes, TWRP is safe. TWRP offers advanced recovery functionalities that can cause issues if used incorrectly or without knowledge. Since it’s an advanced custom recovery, proper care should be taken to avoid temporally bricking or damaging your phone. Features like Format, Partition and inbuilt rooting are to be used carefully
Is TWRP a root?
No, TWRP isn’t a root. You can use TWRP recovery to root your device by flashing Magisk or SuperSU zip files.
Is TWRP a bootloader?
No, TWRP is not a bootloader. A bootloader/Fastboot mode is a mode on Android devices that allows a user to perform advanced functions like debugging, modify system images, give commands etc via a USB connection to a computer.

Thank you for most interesting information.
I have a problem with my Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 SM-G1600 that went Chinese after doing a Samsung Smart Switch asisted firmware update. I looked through the list of links above but did not spot the SM-G1600. Does that mean that TWRP does not exist for that device? Also, is there a European custom ROM that is safe and working with Google Services?
Thank you and best regards,
Thanks for your feedback. Do you want to install TWRP on your device, install a ROM with Google Play Store and services or you just want to have root access on it? This is just to understand your question better.
Thank you for your quick reply.
First I have to admit that I am not really qualified to be on the forum as my knowledge is very limited about the issues discussed and most likely will be unable to contribute with valuable help. But as Samsung refuse to help me, in spite that the local support advised me to use the Smart Switch to resolve an update problem which in fact caused the “damage”, I have to seek help elsewhere. I am happy to have found this forum.
A short back ground summary: I bought the phone on eBay as I was looking for a folder type and this device was not for sale on the European market. It was working fine from the beginning but the Smart Switch changed it to a Chinese version, Google Play disappeared and so did the extensive European language pack. Most likely the device was flashed to a European version by the seller. The box was, however, sealed with Samsung seals…
So to answer your question; what do I want? I would like to reconvert the device to a smart phone with Google Play Services and European languages (now the phone is dumb and I can only use it for calls and sms in English). I hope the forum can help me to achieve that. Root access would be a nice tool to have, but I have to keep in mind my own limitations and not play with toys I cannot control as it can easily lead to a bricked device… I will for sure need to learn a lot more about all this on the forum by discussing with you experts, before I feel ready to do the job.
Alright, I will see how I can provide you with useful information to help you solve your problem.
Thank you so much for your understanding and kindness.
Have a nice day!
While I am waiting for your feed-back, I would like to fully understand the following:
TWRP: Does this mean device recovery to factory standards, in this case a Chinese device?
Root: What does this mean? An open door to new non standard S/W, F/W?
TWRP is a custom recovery which is also known as TeamWin Recovery Project. It’s a custom made recovery that has more features than the standard stock recovery on most Android devices. You can flash zip files or custom ROMs via TWRP, backup your current firmware and restore, access your files and more. This is not available on regular Android stock recovery.
Rooting is your Android device gives you admin rights or privileges to make advanced changes to your device. After rooting your device, you can use root-only apps, tweak your device anyhow you wish and get more features working.
I will get back to you on your previous issue.
Hi again and thank you very much for your response and the time you spend on my case.
I am sorry for asking silly questions, but will all current Chinese S/W be wiped away to be replaced by a custom ROM as part of the TWRP process? I am quite happy to lose all Chinese and get a version compatible with the western world. And based on what you explained, I am wondering if I really need to root the device, unless it is a precondition for the TWRP?
Meanwhile, I have repeatedly tried to install Google Chrome and Firefox browsers through Opera, which I could download with Samsung Internet app and use as a web reader. Searching Google Play it comes up, but it can’t be installed as an app. I can select apps for download, but that does not happen. I can access GP with Opera and find apps for download. When I do that it says “installed” and “this app is compatible with your device” and others say “incompatible”. But no apps are installed and they do not show up in the apps list. When I click on “compatible device” it shows my little Asus tablet, not my Samsung phone. My Google account shows I am logged in correctly but I can’t register the phone as an Android device. It is a total mystery to me…
What would happen if I do a factory reset? Is it likely to go back to the initial flashed European/US version, or is it more likely to just factory reset to the original Chinese version, which was the case after using the Samsung Smart Switch (recommended by the local Samsung support team to resolve an update issue)? I am afraid to test this option as the device might go back to Chinese again and that I will be unable to navigate back to the language settings as I don’t understand one single Chinese character. That would totally corrupt the device…
I don’t know if the above is useful information, but in case it might give you any valuable pieces to the puzzle I thought I should let you know what in fact is happening in different situations.
Hello. Sorry for responding now. It’ has been a little busy here coupled with the recent global pandemic. Hope you’re doing great and also safe.
1. Rooting your device is needed if you want to use root only features or apps.
2. If you install TWRP recovery, it won’t change your current OS unless you install a custom ROM or firmware using TWRP.
3. If installing apps is an issue, I would suggest you use third-party websites that host apk files of millions of Android apps like apkmirror.com, apkpure.com etc, download the apk to your device directly via a browser or your PC and then copy it to your device to install it.
4. Normally, resetting the device will return it to the initial factory state with all your data and settings cleared to defaults. If the original language was in Chinese, it will revert back to it and then you can find your way in to change the language settings.
