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.

Installation instructions:

  1. YOUR PHONE MUST ALREADY BE S-OFF. SEE THE OTHER THREADS IN THIS FORUM ON HOW TO DO THAT.
  2. I recommend getting on Wi-Fi.
  3. Download ROM Manager from the Market. You MUST have at least 2.5.0.6.
  4. Flash Recovery.
  5. Choose G2 as your phone.
  6. Accept the Superuser prompt.
  7. Use ROM Manager to create a Backup.
  8. Watch the backup go!

You can find more information in the recovery image thread.

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...
