We’ve previously shown you some touch-enabled recoveries: for one, the fully touch-based 4EXT Recovery Touch, but also modded CWM versions. However, both had their own shortcomings; while the modded CWM versions use on-screen buttons which emulate the functions of hardware keys, without taking full advantage of the touchscreen, not everyone might be willing to change to a completely different recovery if they’re already used to ClockworkMod. But what if – what if ClockwordMod was updated with a fully touch-based interface?
Apparently, that’s coming soon, as CWM developer Koush is teasing in a new video. It shows the usual ClockwordMod Recovery, but with enlarged list items that can be touched directly, eschewing the need for any emulated buttons. Scrolling also works, but only “very rough” – the scrolling algorithm looks very basic for now, though that (and graphics) will presumably be improved in later versions.
