Koush, the developer of ROM Manager and the popular ClockWorkMod Recovery, recently started working on a new version of ClockWorkMod, with touch support.
Today, he has released the final version of ClockWorkMod Touch Recovery for (some) Android handsets owners to enjoy! Yes, we can finally bid adieu to the painful, albeit safe, way of navigating and flashing ROMs via CWM recovery using our phone’s volume key. As an Android user, who flashes a new ROM on his Galaxy S II nearly every alternate day, I cannot explain what a huge relief this Touch based Recovery will bring for me. I am sure it will also make newbies much more comfortable with using CWM on their phone.
At the moment, the ClockWorkMod Touch Recovery is available only for the Nexus S, Nexus S 4G and the CDMA/GSM variants of the Galaxy Nexus. However, Koush is already working on adding support for some of the popular LG and HTC handsets.
The owners of the above handsets can download and install CWM Touch Recovery using ROM Manager. The Recovery will be available as an in-app purchase for $1.99. Alternatively, users can also download and install the Touch based Recovery for free from the official ClockWorkMod site.
It is just a matter of time before the Touch based ClockWorkMod Recovery is available for all other handsets, including the ones from Samsung and HTC.
