Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus get official TWRP support
Anyone that has tinkered with custom ROMs is bound to have crossed paths with TWRP at some point. And for good reason. TeamWin Recovery Project, or just TWRP is one of the most user-friendly custom recovery firmware out here.
A custom recovery like TWRP and ClockworkMod are used to flash a custom firmware on supported devices. TWRP is available for a number of popular devices in its stable official form. Today, support is added for the Sony Xperia 10 and the Xperia 10 Plus.
This move means that TWRP is officially available for Xperia 10 and 10 Plus users are just a few steps away from flashing any custom ROM developed for their devices without having to deal with a buggy, unofficial custom recovery firmware that might potentially mess up the firmware installation process.
Looking at the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus spec-sheets, it is clear why users might want to install custom firmware on these devices. These are rather solid mid-rangers.
The two devices, Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus were first unveiled at MWC 2019. The Xperia 10 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, while the Xperia 10 Plus steps up to the Snapdragon 636 chipset.
The two devices both have 21:9 aspect ratio displays. The Xperia 10 has a 6-inch FHD+ LCD, while the Xperia 10 Plus has a 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD. The Xperia 10 has 3GB of RAM, while the Xperia 10 Plus steps up to 4GB. Both phones have 64GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot.
TWRP’s list of officially supported devices keeps growing by the day. Most recently we saw the addition of the Motorola E4, Nokia 7.1, Realme X2 Pro, Redmi K20, Redmi 8 and many more devices to the support list.
