Team Win Recovery Project 2.2, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. It's 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.

Twrp 2.2.0 change log
- On-screen keyboard in recovery! -- supports long press, backspace repeat, and swipe left deletes everything left of the cursor
- Name new backups and rename existing backups
- Rename files and folders in the file manager
- Pseudo-terminal emulator
- Support decrypting an encrypted data partition on Galaxy Nexus (enter password using keyboard)
- Backup archive splitting -- allows backup and restore of data partitions larger than 2GB
- Simplified XML layout support between resolutions
- Added dual storage selection radio buttons to zip install, backup, and restore pages
- Improved zip install compatibility
- Updated update-binary source code
- Numerous small bug fixes and improvements​

This is an unofficial port of TWRP by ME (runandhide05)

Flashed it seems to be working fine. Looks diff than on my gnex

Sent from my Xoom using RootzWiki
It does look different than the Gnex version. I do think though that it works as well. I do notice that the touch is way more responsive on the Xoom compared to my Gnex.
Maybe something to do with the screen size, and that my fingers don't really fit the menu selections on the Gnex TWRP as easily.
Glad to see TWRP on the Xoom.

Hoping you guys can help. Installed TWRP without a problem. Trying to install a new rom is where my problems began. I downloaded the rom using goomanager. rebooted into TWRP verified that the Rom was in fact on the Xoom then proceeded to wipe and factory reset and then tried to install the updated room.

set up as follows:

zip file signature verification? unchecked
Force MD5 checks on all zips? unchecked

when I try to flash it says:
verifying filesystem...
verifying partition sizes...
error flashing zip 'data/media/'

I have downloaded the latest ver of EOS and have it on the external SD but I can not get TWRP to read the file on the external SD
I have tried to select "Using external SD" as well as "Using internal storage"
neither seem to allow me to browse to the file that I have put on the external sd.

I have also tried to click mount in TWRP and made sure mount SDcard is checked.
does anyone know how to either get TWRP to install a file from the root directory of the external SDcard, or is there a way to mount a xoom stuck in TWRP using usb so I can move the file from my pc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for this, one thing when i tried to backup using external the recovery crashes and get stuck on the TWRP Blue start up screen .
I had the same issue and figured it out last night. while in recovery you need to mount the external sd card. select mount then select mount sd card and it will change to unmount sd card. then run backup again.
