TWRP has been updated to version on the HTC EVO 4G LTE platform, along with most of Team Win’s other supported devices. The new version has fixed some annoying problems with the file manager, among other minor bug fixes.

One of the new features is the ability to support exFAT formatted SD cards, which can reach 16 exabytes of storage whenever the media is there to support it. It also now uses libtar as opposed to BusyBox for tar file creation, which allows for larger than two gigabyte backups. While the first feature will be useful some day, some of you are probably pushing that two gigabyte limit at the moment in your backups.

At the moment, the downloadable TWRP bootloader/image install on the webpage is still showing the previous version, so you’ll need to install GooManager off of Google Play, then press menu, choose install OpenRecoveryScript. Your phone will reboot once and you should have the new recovery installed.

You will need to be rooted and either S-OFF or HTCDev unlocked in order to install the new TWRP. If you’re wanting to try it out, be aware it works with any of your old TWRP backups, but will not work with all of your CWM backups. However, if you have an old CWM backup you need, switching back and forth between recoveries is a very simple task.
