All the Recoveries You’ll Ever Need for the Nexus S 4G
Selecting a recovery can be a chore on certain, more popular devices. Not because the “perfect” recovery doesn’t exist, mind you, but because there are so many good options to choose from. Then, there are recoveries that have several variants. With some offering touch enabled interfaces, while still updating their older variants, users are faced with much the same choice they have to make when choosing a ROM.
For users on the Samsung Nexus S, your choices are probably even more complicated than most, given the breadth of development available for the device. However, you can now search between them with ease thanks to XDA Senior Member mercado79, who has placed the most popular recoveries in a single thread for easy access.
All the recoveries are distributed as recovery-flashable .zip files, so installation is just a simple flash in your existing recovery. Mercado79 also provides detailed information about each recovery and its helper apps, when applicable. Included are the two big recoveries—ClockworMod and Team Win Recovery Project—along with the less popular, but still functional, RZR recovery. Users simply need to choose, download, and install.
If you’re looking to switch up your recovery, check out the original thread and download to your heart’s content.
