Full Touch Recovery Released for Some Sony Ericsson, Huawei and Samsung Phones
Choosing your recovery is a big deal. For most people, they’re luck enough to get at least one good one and it’s usually ClockworkMod Recovery. On other devices, though, users can have two, three up to half a dozen choices for their recoveries. For some select devices, they now even have the option for a touch recovery or a recovery you can use sans the hardware keys.
XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD and XDA Senior Member Napster or Team UtterChaos have been working hard to get their special blend of touch screen recovery out to as many phones as possible.
Currently, those carrying the Samsung Galaxy SL, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and the Huawei Ideos 6 can be a part of the touch recovery action.
The recovery features a very appealing tiled interface with some nice theming and all the features you’d expect out of a recovery. Additionally, you can use the hardware buttons if you’d like, you can tap directly on options or you can use touch buttons to navigate your way around the interface, giving users pretty much every possible usability option there is. Have we mentioned it looks really pretty? And with even more devices to come, there seems to be no end to the releases to keep your eyes peeled in the forums.
For those who have the Samsung Galaxy SL who want to give it a shot, you can check out the Galaxy SL thread, Xperia Play users can head on over to the Play thread, Xperia Arc users can hit up the Arc thread and for those toting the Huawei Ideos 6, you can find your version in the Ideos Thread. All threads contain additional info, download links and a video with a really nice soundtrack showing you how it works.

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year. Not too long ago we featured a...
HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
