Shortly after the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup, we noticed that the kernel sources of the device trio have been officially released. It was necessary for the development community on the XDA forums to work on these tools immediately. Now, an unofficial port of Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) has been released for the Galaxy S22 series by XDA member killprocess. TWRP is a key element in getting custom ROM development off the ground.

When it comes to aftermarket development a custom recovery like TWRP is essential for several reasons. Its primary purpose is exactly what it says in the name – any custom software must go south in order to recover your device. Without a custom recovery, it is often impossible to flash a custom ROM without a PC, as the OEM recovery will usually prevent unofficial software from being installed.

Talking about the release, the only restriction is that the TWRP build is currently for the Exynos version of the Galaxy S22 (model number). SM-S90xB) developer hasn’t posted a Snapdragon-compatible version yet, but it is expected to be published soon. However, the current development still leaves a large amount of US (as well as Canadian) users in the dark.
