Well, that was fast. Not more than a week after the release of the HTC One X and S in Europe, and Koush has already pumped out a fully working version of ClockworkMod Touch for the pair.

If you have any of the devices supported by CWM Touch and you aren't running it, then you're seriously missing out. Touch recovery is, by far, the most intuitive way to use recovery on your device.

Installing CWM Touch on your device is as simple as 1, 2, 3: just install ROM Manager from the Play Store, tap "Flash ClockworkMod Touch" (requires a one-time in-app purchase of $1.99), and that's it. Super simple. If, for some reason, you can't fork over $1.99 for a recovery, then you can always grab the download from here and flash it yourself at no charge (but really, you should support Koush).

Similarly, if you don't like the idea of a touch-based recovery and prefer to kick it old school, the traditional version of CWM is also available at the source link.

    I prefer Paul's interim CWM-Touch recovery. USB mount doesnt work on either version yet.

    NOT fully working.

    ADB isn't enabled in either the official or interim recovery, which could potentially cause problems.

    Also, phone doesn't charge in recovery, potentially causing bootloops if battery drains.

    Please update the article with fair warning that this is an IN DEVELOPMENT release, currently in testing.

    sd mount does (still) not work ... flashing of new version over interim version via Rom Manager (Premium) - as mentioned above - FAILS ... new version will be just displayed but NOT be flashed; if interim Version is installed, clicking "Flash ClockworkMod Touch" (what i did) will charge you the 1,99 EUR over and over again without flashing it ... be careful! Only manual installation via fastbook recovery *.img fixed this!
