  • Using a custom recovery to flash mods, updates and ROM’s has become very easy and people have started to get the taste of installing custom changes to their Android device. Most have grown accustomed to ClockworkMod as their favorite recovery as it works so well and is compatible with a wide range of developer releases.


    ClockworkMod Recovery has grown a lot during the past months or so. It has brought all the options anyone could need and just when we thought it was perfect version 5.x brought touch support for selected devices. CWM is not the only variant out there. There is also TeamWin Recovery, with lots of awesome features. We still prefer CWM because it gets the job don, it’s easy to use and compatible with most (if not all) dev releases.

    Version 6 for CWM Recovery is currently in the works. An alpha build was released to test the new features. For those who are eager to try the new version you can follow the link to the source, download and flash it. Here are some of the changes for the new version:

    • Recovery will confirm that your ROM still has root access. This is useful on stock ROMs.
    • Recovery disables the stock recovery flasher. This is also useful on stock ROMs.
    • If you’re on a stock ROM and get an update, it used to not allow you to install it at all. Now, it will give you the option to confirm the installation.
    • Backups are much faster. 4-5x faster.
    • Incremental backups are smaller. Way way smaller. Only 15-20MB each for each additional backup of a ROM.
