Latest Build of TWRP Software Supports Qualcomm Encryption on OnePlus One
OnePlus One owners, we have good news for you. The latest build of Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) supports the Native Qualcomm Encryption on your phones.
Looks like OnePlus One has signed a deal with all the good things in the world. Almost a week back its Cyanogen issues were resolved and now the news that it will support TWRP will make its users happy. For most of you who do not know what Team Win Recovery Project is, it is a touch-enabled interface which lets users install firmwares. It is like an open source recovery face made for Android devices.
AOSP (Android Open Source Project) is shifting its attention and devices towards the Qualcomm encryption which means that we might witness manufacturing giants such as Google using this encryption software in their upcoming gadgets.
Ethan ‘Dees Troy’ Yonker, developer TWRP, announced it on Google+ that Qualcomm’s encryption enhances and fastens the performances of devices.
If you didn’t encrypt using CM 12.0 nightly on or after 16th of January 2015, you probably aren’t getting the performance benefits of Qualcomm’s encryption. It also appears that the Oxygen OS team did not add support for Qualcomm encryption. If performance matters to you but you need to be encrypted, then I’d suggest sticking with CM.
This latest encryption method is 30 percent faster than Android’s software. When compared to Google’s AOSP, it showed better performance and gained superiority over conventional methods.
The new build supports decryption for Oxygen OS, CM11, CM12 and CM12.1 as well as CyanogenMod. Builds released after January 2015 of CyanogenMod support Qualcomm encryption however, OxygenOS does not. You can download TWRP from here.
