ClockworkMod's ROM Manager updated with Touch Recovery

ClockworkMod's ROM Manager updated with Touch Recovery
Yesterday, CyanogenMod developer Koush showed us the next iteration of the ClockworkMod Recovery with a video of Touch Recovery beta, and although the beta was available through unofficial sources before, now you can get the fancy new recovery much easier. 

ClockworkMod's ROM Manager, which is probably one of the top 3 essential apps for root users, was updated today to fix some bugs, but more importantly to add Touch Recovery beta. No more need to download the boot.img and flash it manually via fastboot, now you can get the fancy new Touch Recovery straight from the ROM Manager. Of course, there are two small caveats: first, the new Touch Recovery is only available for Galaxy Nexus (all variants) and Nexus S (GSM only, sorry Sprint) users; and, if you want the easy install through ROM Manager, it will cost you $2. 

That's not too bad if you don't like manually messing with your phone, but if you don't like doing that, how would you have found yourself with a rooted Nexus device in the first place?

If you want to grab the new version of ROM Manager, it's available for free in the Android Market. If you want to flash the Touch Recovery manually, you can get those files from ClockworkMod.
