Koushik Dutta, the author of ClockworkMod recovery, has released versions of the touch-enabled CWM Touch recovery over the weekend for both the original ASUS Transformer TF101 and the Transformer Prime TF201. The two devices join an already extensive list of phones with Touch recovery support - in fact, they seem to be the first tablets to support it in CWM's history.


Disclaimer: Android Police isn't responsible for any harm to your device - proceed at your own risk.

To get the touch-enabled ClockworkMod recovery on your device (currently version, make sure you're rooted, load up ROM Manager and click Flash ClockworkMod Touch. This ridiculously easy method is going to cost you a well-deserved $1.99 (in-app purchase, Paypal, or special code redemption). If you don't like that, you can figure out how to install recoveries manually from clockworkmod.com/rommanager - this option is completely free.

Here's a demo of ClockworkMod Touch on a phone, in case you're wondering what to expect:

    aww I'm going to miss the days of navigating through CWM's lists with the volume rocker.

  • Seanzky

    What sucks is we still have to unlock the Prime using Asus' method before we can have this and right now the Prime is just not worth unlocking yet. All the roms out there are nowhere near Eos for the Xoom/TF101/etc. or CM9. In fact, stock seems to be perfect while rom threads on XDA/TF201 Development are full of problems.

    i'm a bit hesitant to install this on my tf101 since the official cwr screwed something up on my tablet and now i have to coldboot every time it boots :/

    • Joshua Wilson

      there are ways to fix your coldboot issues (though as expected, the issue remains in THIS official CWM recovery version too. While in your ROM, open either Terminal Emulator or plug in your TF and open an ADB shell, make sure its got SU permissions, then enter the following commands, making sure to press enter after every line:

      echo boot | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 bs=1 seek=0
      exit (this is only necessary if in adb shell)

      hope this helps :)

    Aww, why no Xoom Wifi :(

  • Haha

    OG TF stock baby

    Not to split hairs, but the HP Touchpad got it first.

      Let's just say official CWM then :)

      The HP Touchpad isn't listed at http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager, so it doesn't look like it's supported by Koush.
