Video: Koush Teases Full Touch-Enabled Clockwork Recovery


No, this isn’t the touch-based Clockwork Recovery that was created for the Galaxy Nexus at the beginning of the month. This is a fully touch-enabled version that no longer uses arrows or physical buttons to get the job done. Our man Koush released a teaser on G+ to get some feedback and to show the progress that he has made. You can’t test it yet and he has promised a better UI, so try to be patient.

    I kind of like the arrows at the bottom ofmy mod CW. Props to Koush he always comes through. My feedback would say increase text font a tad but other than that nice work. And for those who had problems flashing the other CW mod with arrows try using GNex rootkit.Then flash recovery img.

    No more “Back key is disabled” because my volume rocker can’t just go down ONE it has to scroll down about 4 selections every time!

    I’ll look forward to this. I tried flashing the other touch-based one and it didn’t work. Followed the instructions exactly and I still have the regular volume/power Clockwork.

    Question: I see that he has loads of Nandroid backups when he’s scrolling through. I only rooted for the first time with this phone and was shocked to see my storage plummeting until I looked deeper and saw that it was primarily from Rom Manager and Nandroid backups, which were taking up like a gig each or so. Do other people have this problem or is there some trick I’m missing to not have backups taking up huge amounts of my internal storage?

    A savior for the Kindle Fire, which is an amazingly good android tablet, with an unlocked bootloader as well.  The Kindle Fire has no physical volume buttons, so this type of touchscreen based recovery is mandatory.

    #Random, but does anyone else find it odd that the “windows phone” on Microsoft’s site looks exactly like a galaxy nexus?

      Haha. I’m pretty sure that is a nexus.

    Aren’t TouchBased recovery menus a bit dangerous? . . . I’d be paranoid as hell using one worried about pressing something by mistake..

      I am still get paranoid using physical keys when I am flashing a ROM.

    I have been using this for a month on TranquilIce.  Unstable Apps built it.

    He still doesn’t understand that his text is toooooo small.  The other touch based version is much, much, much easier to read and use.  I appreciate his work, but it’s just not user friendly.

      To be fair, the post says he promises a better UI. Hopefully increased text size will come. Though, perhaps not. He’s said in the past that he values having 1 recovery for all phones, and I think low resolution screens might make bigger text unwieldy.

      Anyway, my main complaint is the setup of the menus. The Rogue recovery for the Xoom has redone the menus so there is a “Wipe” menu from the root screen. This menu then gives you the options to “Wipe Data,” “Wipe Cache,” and “Wipe Dalvik Cache.” Pretty helpful, since if you’re wiping data or cache, you’re also wiping Dalvik too.
