I recently flashed a stock system image to take an OTA update and have only booted to TWRP since. (I didn't flash it) I did root, though. When I was browsing /system I found that reboot-from-recovery.p was renamed to reboot-from-recovery.bak
My question is was this done by SuperSU or TWRP? and could this be the only modification?

It's done by TWRP.

If you're rooted, SuperSU modifies /system as well to put files there to give you root.

  • Is that the only change? Can I reverse it by, say, flashing "undo-perm-recovery-signed"?

  • Yeah you could, but the reason TWRP renames that is so that when you want to boot to recovery, you'll boot to TWRP and not stock Android recovery. Sep 17, 2015 at 16:32
  • Many Thanks. But it seems like a pointless thing to happen when TWRP is not even flashed.
