A little over a week ago, Koush – the developer of the popular ClockWorkMod Recovery, released a preview build of CWM Recovery 6 for the Galaxy Nexus. Today, Koush has gone ahead and released the final version of CWM Recovery 6 for the Galaxy Nexus.
The latest version of CWM brings with it some much needed changes and enhancements that will be appreciated by all CWM users. Here is a quick run-down of all the new features in CWM Recovery 6 right from Koush himself-:
New backup format that deduplicates data between backups.
Fixed restores > 2GB.
Minor UI tweaks (new background, animated Android)
The new version of CWM Recovery makes nandroid backups insanely fast, and the best part is that they are much smaller in size. This news should come as a relief for owners of handsets with fixed internal memory, who are always limited on free space.
In addition to this, Koush also mentioned that going-forward he will not be basing CWM on every new AOSP recovery, since this provides little to no benefit. He also stated that his popular app, ROM Manger, which is now a little over 2 years old, is “starting to show its age”. He has been contemplating a significant UI rewrite and will start working on that shortly, and will also be adding new features like connecting ROM Manager to the Recovery builder for automatic CWM updates, a paid ROM section for developers to publish their work etc.
A Touch and non-Touch variant of CWM Recovery 6 is already available for download from ROM Manager for Galaxy Nexus users.
