CWM Recovery 6 Lands on the HTC Rhodium

Custom recoveries such as the venerable ClockworkMod Recovery are (in addition to Superuser and SuperSU) likely some of the most widely utilized programs developed on XDA due to the functionality they bring and the doors that they open. As such, CWM has been ported to countless devices, and has become the preferred method of flashing custom ROMs onto virtually anything that runs Android. It seems that the CWM fever expanded into devices that were never meant to run this type of recovery image such as Windows Mobile devices. Now, we are all familiar with this thanks to the likes of the immortal HTC HD2 and its ability to run virtually any OS, regardless of platform. However, the HD2 is not the only WinMo device capable of running Android or CWM.

XDA Forum Member jianC just released a version of the famous recovery for the HTC Rhodium (AT&T Tilt 2 or T-Mobile Touch Pro2 for those of you in the US). The device still keeps on getting some support from developers, and the Android project is one of those ideas that are keeping the device alive. This recovery accomplishes standard custom recovery fare by allowing you to perform basic functions such as clearing  cache (standard and Dalvik) as well as flashing ROMs and kernels. This is a particularly useful feature for those who have installed Android on NAND (i.e. those who have given up on WM completely).

Installation is accomplished through Fastboot, so make sure that you have the Android SDK on your system along with the proper drivers for your device. The port is fully functional, but any and all feedback regarding bugs is always welcome. If you still have your TP2, take it out for a spin and let the dev know how it is working.

 This is just a recovery I compiled from the latest available code from the CM10 source. It does not offer any major upgrade in function from ACL’s latest cwm recovery, but is slightly aesthetically different. 

You can find more information in the original thread.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
