TWRP 2.0 Touchscreen Recovery RC released

Recoveries are a very important part of anyone dealing with rooting or flashing custom firmware or doing other modifications on Android devices and most of the recoveries use the hardware keys to navigate around menu options. But in the case of lack of hardware buttons, one was left with no option and then button based navigation is always boring when user has a touchscreen device. To make that situation change, Team Win started working on a touch based recovery – also known as – Team Win Recovery Project; the released candidate of this recovery image has been released today for mass consumption.

This RC comes with official support for over 15 devices including the button less Amazon Kindle Fire.  You can find the full list of supported devices later in the post.
