    switching from cwm recovery to twrp recovery?

    From what I can tell, TWRP recovery seems to be the better and still plays nice with CM roms and my currend XenonHD Rom

    I have the latest XenonHD, which is JB 4.2.1

    Can someone point me to the steps or outline the steps for me to switch the recovery program from cwm to twrp without losing my current apps/settings? And get rid of any junk left by cwm (like backup blob files)?

    Thanks!

    The backups you will have to remove manually..... Is Ez Recovery available for the Nexus in the Play Store? I'm not sure if it is compatible with the Nexus or not..

    Your CWM backups will not work in TWRP. You're going to want to back those up in TWRP, so you'll be going back and forth between recoveries. Then when you're done, either delete your CWM ROMs or copy them to your hard drive. That's what I do.

    Ok, what are the steps to installing the new recovery?

    How do I switch between them?

    Thanks for those instructions. Haven't tried them yet. Since I have CWM already, will this simply replace it with TWRP?

    And also, once I install the TWRP, can I just do a new nandroid backup and then delete all the CWM related files?

    Thanks

    Yes, that's what I did. I had CWM first and then switched to TWRP using the method posted. Once I had TWRP installed I did a nandroid backup and deleted all my CWM recoveries. I switched to TWRP when I switched to JB ROMs so I pretty much started on a clean slate.

    you can also use the goo manager app to flash the twrp recovery... if you just go into the app hit menu.. and select install open recovery
    CJM and dezymond like this.

    That's cool that you can install it right from goo manager. Does it install the latest TWRP, 2.3.3.0?
