Update: Things appear to be moving along nicely - Nathan just released the first Beta version of CWM touch. Hit the link below to check it out.

What's the hottest thing to hit custom recoveries since, well... custom recoveries hit? Your fingers! That's right, touch-based recoveries (like TWRP) are starting to make the rounds on various devices, and Android modder Nathan Grebowiec just released an unofficial version of ClockworkMod Recovery with touch controls for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (both GSM and LTE variants).

The interface design is all-around practical, as it uses on screen buttons just like ICS. Have a look:

ClockworkMod Touch is available for download now, but remember that this is just an alpha version. Thus, you can't expect everything to work perfectly and may experience some bugs. If you want to give it a shot, head right here to grab the download.

    I'm getting 'Http/1.1 Service Unavailable' where I assume there's supposed to be a video...

      Fixed now! Dunno if it was my PC or the web, but thanks anyway!

        Youtube is having a lot of issues today. Lots of Error 502s...

          I use 4Ext Recovery. Best recovery out there. Supports touch recovery too.

          Although not available on all devices.


    It should be noted that this is unofficial. It's not koush's work.

      Yep, I addressed that:

      "...and Android modder Nathan Grebowiec just released the first version of Touch-Enabled ClockworkMod Recovery for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus."

    Working great for me!

    Should redo the title of the post. I though it was Koush's work, not an unofficial hack or mod. "Touch enabled ClockworkMod recovery alpha released for the Galaxy Nexus" sure makes it sound like it is an official Koush release. Anything for clicks I guess.

    • Cameron Summerson

      Clarified the wording in the body of the post to note that this is unofficial.
