Later, the earlier  day, TeamWin updated its TWRP again, now to v2.4.1.0. The latest build brings up a few additional bug fixes to the 2.4.0.0 release. So, here are the changes that comes up:

  • Fixed a problem with mkdosfs that formatted sdcards to 2GB
  • Fixed hand off between vfat and exFAT on devices where blkid didn’t detect vfat (fixes some issues with mounting sdcards)
  • Fixed problems with changing working directory on MD5 creation/checking that may have prevented unmounting
