This is a custom TWRP recovery for Lenovo A820. I guess it might work fine for A830 too, but I don't have the device to verify. It is suitable for KitKat roms.

TWRP has touch support, extended backup/restore functions, theming and many more.

I've currently ported 3 themes with material design – Dark, Light and Play.



arraki@4pda for the TWRP base

Omnirom team for ui.xml

z31s1g@xda for themes

More about TWRP project on their official site



Here are some variants for flashing the custom recovery

  1. If you already have the older TWRP version installed (v1), you can tap on Install button, swtich to Images (from the button in the bottom right corner) find your downloaded twpr img file, then select Recovery as destination partition and swipe to flash.
  2. By Rashr – Flash Tool from PlayStore. Just select Recovery from storage and find the downloaded img file.
  3. By FlashTool for PC



Place desired theme in /sdcard/TWRP/theme (create that folder if you don't have it) and rename the zip file to ui.zip. Then restart to recovery to see the effect.


※Please make a backup of your device before installing or updating ROM

      There are several KK roms available already. Still not good enough in my eyes, but stable for everyday use.

      Hi infrared,

      glad that you still work on the 820 !

      Which other KKs (other than mastersanta´s beta) are out there ? They are not on needrom, I suppose.

      3-4 other roms at 4pda forum, including miui 6, vibe 2 and some aosp based roms.

    Why I have no permission to download a theme? (Material dark)

    • 04/06/2013


      I have disabled it. You should only use the three v2 themes.

      dark_material_540x960_mod.zip was the initial theme, which is now obsolete. Use v2 instead.

    Hi, is backup working? I moved from cwm and trying to backup my lambda 2.4.1. Checking all boxes in backup but getting error “can’t mount internal storage and emmc”. Phone is meteos treated and disabled internal memory…

    • 11/07/2013


      Now I see there is a problem right after recovery start – list of errors in console "E: Unable to mount '/emmc'". Also theme is not applied. Racovery doesnt remembe'r settings as time zone, screen brightness etc.

      For disabled emmc I believe you would need a modified recovery to support this.

      And TWRP saves its settings on emmc, but since you have it disabled, it seems to not recognize it.

      What if you change the destination of backup to external sd card?

  7. 11/07/2013


    Thx for hint Infrared, destination changed and backup is ok now.

  8. 11/03/2014


    I have a problem, that TWRP cant see my SD, which is working perfectly, and TWRP itself was flashed from that SD. When I want to find a .zip to flash, it shows [0mb] External memory and dont let me choose SD. Why's that?

      Any manipulations done to partitions? What was your previous recovery?

      I want to compile TWRP from source, because the port is not optimal, but have so many other things to do, so this is with lower priority.

    because i need to flash kitkat rom without kernel 3.4.67 it is impossible to flash please help me……

    Hey infrared, nice work. Could you add F2FS support ? There are some twrp versions built with this new filesystem, could you compile one for a820?

    (could you write some quick start guide to compile things for a820?)
