A couple of days back, Team Win Recovery Project – or simply TWRP to those in need and in the know – pushed out a new version of their custom recovery for Google’s new flagship biggie, the Nexus 6P. The problem with that version was that it did not support decryption from the recovery – a problem since most Nexus 6P users out there have enabled encryption on their spanking new phones anyways. This has been rectified now with a new version.
TWRP team member Ethan Yonker (aka DeesTroy) announced via his Google+ account that TWRP version 126.96.36.199 will support decryption straight from recovery, and all of us custom ROM users and modders can now use the latest version of TWRP on the Nexus 6P, even with stock software encrypted. Heck yeah.
Yonker did also announce that owners of the Nexus 5X will have to wait a bit, since the TWRP team still doesn’t have a unit to actually test out the software they have – which is, you know, a problem. But as soon as they get their Nexus 5X from LG, you can probably expect the build for the smaller Nexus phone to be out as quickly as possible as well, and with decryption capabilities.
You can already download the 188.8.131.52 build at TWRP’s online repository – look for the “angler” code name for the Nexus 6P. For the Nexus 5X, the latest build available is still one version down.
