ClockworkMod Recovery Hits HTC EVO LTE

For a phone that was just released, it can be said with no argument that the development for the HTC EVO LTE has been on fire. The device, which has already been rooted also has a few mods available. So where is the custom ROM and kernel goodness?

XDA Elite Recognized Developer toastcfh has ported the popular ClockworkMod Recovery to the EVO LTE, giving users the ability to flash custom ROMs, kernels, and modifications, as well as perform system backups. In the thread, posted by XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy-, users will find the method to getting the recovery onto their devices.

Obviously, one must be rooted and HTCDev unlocked before attempting. The recovery is still in early stages. Thus far, it’s been confirmed that the big features like Nandroid backups and flashing update.zip files work. However, it’s been established that USB Mass Storage and the Touch Screen do not work just yet. Those waiting for a fully functional and stable recovery may want to hold off for a bit longer. However, for the flashaholics out there, it should be stable enough to relieve that flashing itch.

One really cool thing about the recovery is that it is boot writable. This means that kernels can be flashed in recovery, as though the device were s-off. Thus, users won’t have to use fastboot to flash kernels.
