Team Win Recovery Project 2.7, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

I just compile their sources.
- Download your image and rename to recovery.img
- Copy the image to your External SD, and boot while pressing the reset button. On TWRP screen select install->images pick recovery.img
- adb shell 'dd if=/path/to/recovery.img of=/dev/block/recovery ;sync;sync'
On booting to TWRP you might get a screen with stripes, or fill with one colour. Just wait around 3 seconds that TWRP curtain will show.

New on 184.108.40.206 version
- Backup of Data will backup InternalSD also, it will only skip TWRP and Downloads folder from internalSD.
- Backup/Restore functions are not compatible with previous versions
- There will be no entry in backup menu for internalSD
- On restore it will NOT wipe internalSD, but overwrite it. So anything newer/different than the backup will be maintained. Wipe internal storage if any issues arise.
- Fixed problem with 0 size and/or not showing partitions.
- There's 2 variants now due to HW revisions, check this post to choose
