    ClockworkMod Recovery 6 brings several improvements that will make it easy for users to save their important data when switching between ROM’s. The new version allows for incremental backups by “deduplicating” data between backups. The backup speed has also been greatly improved and some issues have been fixed. In the UI department, few changes have been applied. Here is what Koushik Dutta, CWM creator has to say about the future of the recovery:

    “In the past, I have merged/rebased every CWM with AOSP. With Jellybean, I have decided this is no longer in the best interest of the project. There are only a few areas of AOSP recovery that are of interest (roots.c – file system, minui, and updater). Those will continue to be merged into CWM. Other than that, doing a full rebase with every code drop has been a giant headache, with the code churn from upstream that providing little to no value to CWM. 
    In any case, this unties my hands to deviate completely from AOSP, with the primary goal to make a much more polished touch UI.”

    If you own a Galaxy Nexus you can download the new CWM Recovey 6 from their official page.
