TWRP 3.7 supports Android 12 and more devices

TWRP 3.7

You must root and install a custom recovery on your Android phone before flashing a custom ROM or modifying the system partition. TeamWin Recovery Project, or TWRP, is the most popular custom recovery in the modding community. In November 2017, TWRP launched v3.6 with Android 11 support and a speedier install method. A year later, TWRP 3.7 offers Android 12 support and other updates.

TWRP 3.7 features a new Android 12 and 12L branch for compatibility. This allows data encryption on newer devices (via XDA). Android 11 and Android 9 have been improved for older devices. Unofficial TWRP builds for Android 12 existed, but an official release means improved stability and fewer issues.

TWRP 3.7.0 updates

This release splits TWRP into three branches. Android-12.1 allows data decryption on Android 12/12L devices, making it the default target for newer devices. Android-11 received backported features from its successor for compatibility. Android-9.0 can still build most legacy devices.
