This is the modified version of TWRP boasting more advanced features. Meet the Red Wolf Recovery Project! Despite compiled from TWRP source code, the RWRP boasts features which we might not see yet on other recoveries.
It has similar UI design as TWRP but its default theme color is Red. The main menu is also similar. However, some things under the hood work a little bit different in RWRP. This is because some features are not accepted for addition to the original TWRP source code.
The main developers of this ported TWRP are ATG Droid and Dadi11. In addition to both developers of RWRP, credits and thanks also belong to yshalsager as the maintainer for the RWRP build for Vince.
The best feature and the one being top feature that its developers proud of is password protection. The RWRP developers claim the recovery as the first in the world to have password protection technology. Without a correct password, anyone won’t be able to enter the recovery. On top of that, MTP is not starting automatically until user enter the correct password.
