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.

For some select devices, they now even have the option for a touch recovery or a recovery you can use sans the hardware keys.
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.

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.
