ClockwordMod Recovery about to get update to version 6
posted by Michael H. / Jul 13, 2012, 5:49 PM
Version 6 looks to have 3 major updates packed into it, all of which are designed to make life easier for those of you out there who like to root your device, but keep whatever the stock ROM is for your device. This is pretty nice, because not everyone is adventurous enough or feels the need to get into the custom ROM scene. So, for those people out there, CWM 6 will be adding options to check and make sure your ROM is still rooted, to disable the stock recovery flasher, and it will also give you the option to install an official OTA update for your device.
All in all, a pretty solid set of new features. No timetable on a release, but there are already betas out for some devices, so it likely won't be too long.

I owned the Rezound. The previous version didn't work well with flushing the ROM sometimes. Amon RA Recovery is a better choice. CWM worked great with my Moto Droid X though.

I used to have a Droid Eris and Amon RA seemed to work better with that. I wonder if Amon RA just works better with HTC phones (or, if the reciprocal is true and it's just that CWM doesn't) since it's so prevalent on handsets from other manufacturers.

i still prefer 4EXT for my Desire S.. But might try this.. the only feature these custom recoveries needs is the flashing boot.img without using fastboot command (and PC) for all the phones that use that..
