TWRP Manager

TWRP Manager

Live backup in TWRP Manager is incompatible with Busybox on Rails. If you are having issues this will be the first question we ask you. Their implementation of busybox/tar is non-standard.

This app allows you to Install zips, Restore backups, create backups (both classic in TWRP and live backup without rebooting device), and install TWRP recovery for supported devices. This utilizes OpenRecoveryScript to complete these actions.
Now features a premium live backup option. Nandroid backup your device while booted in Android and without rebooting to recovery.
We have also added in an in app purchase to remove ads.
If you are at all unhappy with your purchase email us with if you would like us to fix the issues or just refund your money. Either way we will happily oblige.
If you have any issues or questions please either email us and we will assist. We only have so many devices to test on between the 2 of us.

    Twerp crashes as soon as I open it.

      You might have to install Play Store. It crashed for me as well without Play Store, installed Play Store and and it works fine. I guess because it is trying to notify you that you should install some other extension and that requires play store?

      • Bret Zamzow

        That’s because it checks for licensing when opened.

    Oneplus One – Crashed too 🙁

    • Bret Zamzow

      Information can be helpful. What where you doing when it crashed, what ROM are you using, do you have xposed running?

  • Oneplus One: Works like a Charm 🙂

    i really like TWRP, but I was unable to flash a custom ROM so I decided to try Clockwork Mod. As soon as I booted it I decided I didn’t want to use it and I have a TWRP backup that I need to flash in order to get some information from an app. But When I’ve tried to use TWRP it always goes to CWM in recovery mode, even though I’ve uninstalled and removed all the CWM apps and programs. CWM won’t flash the TWRP back up ROM. So what can I do. I have the latest version of TWRP Pro. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling TWRP. Thank you and thank you for making such a user friendly app.

    • Bret Zamzow

      allrite, you need to actually flash TWRP from the app to use the recovery.

      • alllrite

        Thank u i eventually figured that out

    Hello, I am following this thread if anyone still watches. I have an at&t samsung galaxy S4 sgh-i337 build nc1. I have run twrp and ended with a “Downloading…Do not turn off target!!” message on the display and would not stop. I ended that with Volume down, Power, and Home keys held down until I could reboot. Now I get the blue snake circling and I have to hold the Powre button to get it to stop doing that and boot.

  • Habs Killa

    Since updating to Android 5.0, none of the reboot commands, including power off, are working. Is there
    something I need to do/change in order for this to work?

    • Bret Zamzow

      Try uninstalling and re-installing


    Crashes when i tap install twrp

    Android 4.4.2

    • TheReduxPL

      Similar here on Nexus 5, Android 5.0.1. I can go to “Install TWRP” but clicking “Recovery Version to Install” or “Install Recovery” causes a crash. My currently installed recovery is a modified version of TWRP (MultiROM).

    • IrishFromMA…

      I had that issue after updating to 5.1.0, I had dumped most of the GAPPS and hadn’t installed Google Play. I believe Google has their sticky fingers in everything now. Once I installed Google Play, and sync’d the account I used for TWRP Manager App, it worked flawless, as usual.

  • Carlo Zins

    I have a problem with the live backup i buy it out of the app and when i go back to live backup nothing changed and when i press purchase i become the error that i have already payt for it.

    • Bret Zamzow

      This is rare but happens. What gapps are you using?

  • S3 international crash crash crash

    • Bret Zamzow

      Information would help us fix it.

  • HansVader

    I’m using TWRP Manager i has a feature request for LiveBackup .
    I really need a Option to set a Password for the Backup that will generated

    • Bret Zamzow

      That is an interesting feature idea. I will look into it.

  • I can’t update TWRP. It downloads the newest version, confirms the partition (which, how the F am I supposed to know if “mmcblk0p43” is the correct partition?), and then says:

    “flashing recovery was unsuccessful. either you already have this recovery installed or another error has occurred.”

    That is not very helpful. WTF do I do?

    • Also, now, when I try to boot into recovery, it freezes on the “entering recovery” screen. So your app seems to have done nothing but screw up my existing version of TWRP.

      • Bret Zamzow

        Realish, while I apologize for the issues I hope you understand something.

        This is an advanced tool. You are expected to have an understanding of your device and how things work before using this app. Being able to identify the recovery partition is a part of that. A simple Google search will tell you if it is the correct partition.

        As far as your claim that we screwed up your existing version of TWRP, read above. Flashing failed which means you no longer have a recovery. If you would like to be a litte more professional we can absolutely help you, but you first need to calm down and try emailing us for support.

  • Oualdo

    How to use .blob files. Too bad !!

  • Douglasrac

    Where the livebackup goes? How much space do I have?

    • Bret Zamzow

      livebackups go to the same location as your normal backups. You have as much space is available on your phone.

    While running Install TWRP from withing TWRP Manager on rooted Asus TF101 I receive following error: “You don’t have permissions to access /recovery/file/twrp2/tf101/ on this server”.
    How to solve this problem?

  • disqus_G580CB3yCo

    Where is the list of supported devices. Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrggggghhhhh

  • Jeremy Titus

    Any idea why using live backup just stays at the “Backing up, Please wait…” – “Backing up: /system” view with a spinner for hours now. Also when doing classic and it reboots, nothing is able to mount (it complains about system and data). Galaxy S6 Tmobile – G920TUVU1AOCG with TWRP recovery.

    • James

      Can you shoot us an email at [email protected] and we will assist with this issue? Thank you

      • Jeremy Titus

        I spent way too many hours and found out it was because I had encrypted the drive in the settings and so I borked it by doing TWRP before decrypting. I had to flash back the original recovery image and then do a full wipe and then I was able to do everything. I could not wipe it with TWRP because it couldn’t even see a a drive at all. I think there should be warnings about this somewhere.

        • James

          Ok. Glad you got it figured out.

    Crash on sprint note 4 when trying to select device name on the TWRP manager under the TWRP install


    When I use Odin to install twrp on note 2 l900 I lost cell service but I used the phone button instead of the pad button.

  • Sabbir Sikder

    Make 1 recovery for samsung galaxy E5 SM-E500H lolipop 5.1.1

  • Dawson Rodriguez

    Installed TWRP Manager from the Play Store and I’m running TWRP v2.8.7.0 on a Galaxy S4 (Sprint), but for some reason I can’t get TWRP Manager to “boot to recovery”. It just sits there as I tap on “yes” to confirm. I end up tapping on “no”, getting out of your app, and going into ROM Manager to boot to recovery. I don’t understand why it doesn’t work properly. It has SU permissions.

    • Raizen

      I have the same issue but when I leave the boot area and head to regular start up, the phones crash and I can access anything without either factory reset or reinstalling the root.

    • Vas Ra

      I had the same issue. It started working after i flashed TWRP tar via Odin. Find it on xda forums. Then open twrp, reboot to recovery. Should work.

  • Vebulous Xerconis

    I’m having the same issue as Dawson Rodriguez. And forget about using the app to install a different version of twrp. It goes to a screen saying “downloading” with a bunch of advertisements, then shows a LOOOOOOONG page of gibbersih, un-encoded garbage. Bach button wont work. Killing the app is the only solution.

    Needless to say, points for trying, but its not working.

    A side note, and i’m not sure if this is related, but its showing that I have twrp installed whereas the latest (as of this writing) is….maybe i come from the future?

  • Wayne Tempel

    Why can’t the newest APK be directly downloaded? I have the Nexus 6 running Marshmallow 6.0, yet the Play Store tells me that my device isn’t compatible with this version! What gives?

  • DavidDe

    The direct download link doesn’t work ! I couldn’t download the file !

  • Ravindra Vekariya

    i want to TWRP IMAGE FILE please give downlode link

  • Koera

    Would you consider uploading to F-Droid as an appstore aswell as google play?

  • Joseph Wellman

    I am using Nexus 6p and it asked if the location of the recovery file is. I checked it and when I find the location the recovery file there looks like a shortcut file. And I have installed and the app does not even show it as installed

  • Alok Kumar Gartia

    is it suitable for yureka plus

  • Shama Jay

    I tried to update the version of TWRP I was using on my htc one m8 to v2.8.7.0 and the screen is stuck on “Entering Recovery…”. I would appreciate any advice anyone can give me about how to get out of it. I tried holding down the power button it does nothing. The screen is frozen.
