Koushik Dutta, the mastermind behind ClockworkMod recoveries and other goodies, has been hard at work today after releasing the initial beta versions of the new Touch iteration of CWM for the Nexuses. "What was he doing?" you may ask. Adding support for more devices, one by one. They are, as of this moment:

  • HTC EVO 4G
  • HTC Desire GSM
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC Sensation
  • Update #1: HTC Thunderbolt added
  • Motorola Atrix 4G
  • and, of course, Galaxy Nexus (CDMA/GSM) and Nexus S/S4G that we already knew about

As before, you can grab the new touch-enabled recoveries for free from http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager or acquire them directly from ROM Manager for $1.99 and support Koush's work.

    I've used CWM on several of my phones, but what exactly is touch recovery?

      Hit the first link in the article, and you'll see a video demo of it in action.

    It is CWM but you can use touch to control it instead of the hardware buttons

  • Tyler

    welp, since I dont know how to install an img file, I guess they can have my money.

    • gosa

      I was actually thinking more or less the same...

      "Google on how to install recoveries from img-files or just pay the 1.99$...?"

      - I'll just pay the money and make both of us (me and Koush) happy.

    Well gee thanks but I've already been using 4ext recovery on my Desire HD and it is loads better, touch and all.

  • Tim

    Where is ROM Manager $1.99? It's listing as $5.99 in the Market right now.

    • Drake

      You can use standard rom manager. It's one of the bottom selections (v5.0)

      $1.99 is the in-app purchase price for the touch recovery.

  • L boogie

    Would it soon be available for the droid incredible?

  • jimmur

    I downloaded the .img file now what

    In app purchases... god i hate in app purchases! Anytime you wipe or lose your sata (including in a backup) it always is lost and devs are only sometimes nice to refund it... Why cant it just be normal app?

      It shouldn't be lost if implemented right.
