One of the more exciting developments in the Android mod scene in the last week or so has been ClockworkMod Recovery Touch, a new version of Koushik Dutta’s ubiquitous custom recovery software. Initially offered earlier this week, the touchscreen enabled pre-boot environment is now available on more Samsung, HTC and Motorola devices. Initially developed for only the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. But a recovery system takes a lot less time to modify than a full ROM, so we’re seeing the updated software spread out quickly.
Most of the newly supported devices are made by HTC. The EVO 4G, EVO 3D, Desire, Desire HD, and Thunderbolt all have shiny new touch-enabled recoveries waiting for them. The Motorola Atrix 4G (but not the Atrix 2) and the formerly unsupported Samsung Nexus S 4G (CDMA version). You can download the recovery built for your specific device at the ClockworkMod project page, or shell out six bucks fro ROM Manager Premium in the Android Market.
It looks like ClockworkMod Recovery touch is fast becoming the main focus for developer “Koush”, who’s also a member of the CyanogenMod team and the lead in the CyanogenMod App Store project. That’s a good indication that most if not all future revisions of the recovery will feature touch-based controls, probably starting with version 6. Expect more and more supported models in the next few weeks.
