Cannibal Open Touch joins custom recoveries roster

When we speak of custom recoveries, the two that probably come to mind are ClockworkMod (CWM) and TWRP, though there are quite a few based on these two as well. Of course, that doesn't mean there's no place for other players and there is definitely still some wiggle room for improvements. Despite its name, Cannibal Open Touch won't eat your device. Instead, it will open it up to a world of possibilities that only a custom Android recovery can.

Google Glass gets ClockworkMod Recovery as the hacking continues

When the folks at Mountain View released Google Glass to developers it was quickly discovered that the wearable computing glasses were extremely easy to hack.

Fast forward to today and we have an unofficial ClockworkMod Recovery up and running on Glass.

AROMA manages file system in recovery mode

On Android, file managers are a dime a dozen - in fact, considering that most of them are free, they're considerably cheaper than that. But how about when you enter your custom recovery for a little ROM flashing action, and you've forgotten where your file os, or you're using the wrong SD card, et cetera? AROMA File Manager is here to help.
