ClockworkMod Recovery Available for the G2
You may remember an article from last week, when we talked about Clockworkmod adapted for the Desire Z. XDA member Koush, who happens to be the creator of this very famous recovery has just released a version of his popular recovery image for the G2. If you come from older devices like the EVO, you will probably be thankful that this is now available. In case you are not familiar, CWM will allow you to preform a wide variety of actions.
If this is all you’ve been waiting for to root your G2, now its the time. Feel free to post some feedback in the thread.
