Custom recovery plays a major part in any hacking activity that we do on our Android devices. It is our last hope when things fail during our modding endeavors. It gives us the ability to restore a backup copy of our ROMs if the last one we installed did not work.
If you are into modding or hacking, for sure you have already run into ClockworkMod, which is a popular recovery tool. For most of you who are fond of installing custom ROMs to your Android gadgets, this should be a typical tool.
The developer of ClockworkMod Recovery just released a touch-enabled version for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. This version puts four capacitive buttons at the bottom of the screen, which will allow users to navigate through the options in ClockworkMod Recovery. If using the physical buttons (e.g., the Power and Volume buttons) are cumbersome for you, this touch-enabled version will be a convenient alternative. Despite the touch-enabled capability, you will still have the option to use those physical buttons if you like.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and you want to try this new version of ClockworkMod Recovery, you can follow the instructions in this guide for installing the touch-based version to your device.
This version of ClockworkMod is still a beta version, so don’t be surprised if you run into bugs or other issues.
The touch-enabled version of ClockworkMod is indeed an improvement over previous versions. We hope that this raises the bar a bit higher for this popular utility so it can compete with the more enhanced TWRP 2.0 utility which is all touch-enabled.
Have you tried the new touch-based ClockworkMod Recovery? Is it easier to use than the non-touch version?
