Just weeks after we saw our first “unofficial” release of a touch version of the popular ClockworkMod custom recovery, developer Koush has put forth a beta version of his own, available for download now.
For you new folks, a custom recovery is an indispensable way to back up your device as well as install new custom ROMs and updates, among other little hacky things. Until recently, it’s been controlled by using the volume up/down buttons to scroll through the menus, and (usually) the power button to select.
This touch recovery still has volume select, but now the touchscreen works, and works well. We’ve got some hands-on video after the break, and you can snag it from the download links below.
