ClockworkMod Recovery and TWRP for the Nexus 4

The Nexus 4 was just recently released, and naturally it didn’t take long for developers to achieve root and start releasing development work. With all Nexus devices, unlocking the bootloader is fairly simple. You need the Android SDK for Fastboot support, and you simply enter fastboot OEM unlock.

First came ClockworkMod Recovery for the Google Nexus 4 thanks to Koush. The update was posted to the forums by XDA Forum Member fkrone. The recovery is the official version of ClockworkMod Touch, and it seems to be highly functional.

For those who prefer more eye candy and an even greater number of additional features, XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy has ported his famous Team Win Recovery Project 2.3 to the device. As usual, the TWRP 2.3 port includes all of the previously covered goodies such as a fancy themable GUI, ORS support, and much more.

For more details, check out the TWRP 2.3 and ClockworkMod threads!

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
