How to Install ClockworkMod Touch Recovery on Motorola Atrix 4G

February 19, 2012

Featuring a 4.0 inch display and a 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, the Atrix 4G is one such beast capable of doing just about everything.  But, you can unleash the Atrix 4G’s full potential even more by installing custom ROMs. Almost every rooted Android user knows that there is nothing better than having custom ROMs.  For starters, custom ROMs are always preferred to stock ROMs due to the fact that crapware and bloatware are virtually eliminated in custom ROMs, providing a faster and snappier experience.

But, before you get your hands dirty with installing custom ROMs, you need to have a recovery tool to make your life easier. Rooted users of the Atrix 4G will surely love how they can install ClockworkMod Touch Recovery, as it can unlock the full potential of their device, as well as let them use the recovery interface by just tapping their touchscreens (instead of using the Volume keys and Power button, as in the non-touch version of ClockworkMod).

If you’ve got yourself a rooted Motorola Atrix 4G, then it is easy for you to flash the recovery, for a fee, via ROM Manager from the Android Market. But, if you are on a tight budget, you can simply install it absolutely free via ADB in just two, quick, easy commands.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to install ClockworkMod Reovery Touch on your Motorola Atrix 4G without spending any cash on ROM Manager.



  1. Download the recovery image to your PC.
  2. Rename the file into something that is easily recognizable such as atrix4g.img.
  3. Copy the file into the same folder where fastboot.exe is located. In most cases, this is inside /android-sdk/tools/.
  4. Launch a command prompt on your computer and enter the following commands (remember to replace “atrix4g.img” below into the name you renamed the image to):
    • fastboot flash recovery atrix4g.img
    • fastboot reboot

Congratulations! You have successfully installed ClockworkMod Touch Recovery on your Motorola Atrix 4G.  Now that you have installed ClockworkMod, your device is now ready for further customizations and hacking. With so many custom ROMs to choose from, you can now flash your favorite ROM to your heart’s content.
