New Fully Featured Recovery For G2 – 4EXT Now Available
One of the most important tools that any Android flashing addict must have is a reliable, good, and feature rich recovery image on their devices. This wonderful creation allows you to perform things like flashing, cleaning, partitioning of your card, more flashing, connect via USB to the pc, and so much more. Having the best one is always a tough ordeal as it takes testing of features and tons patience. Well, if you are a Desire Z or G2 owner, your search maybe over because XDA member madmaxx82 brings you 4EXT. This recovery will allow you to do a lot of things that you will not be able to do with other recovery images, including theming it (in case you are not satisfied with the regular black background and stock color from whichever one you are currently using.
The features are just too many to list here, but if you do have this device, we strongly suggest that you take it for a test drive. If you find any bugs, please leave some feedback. One last suggestion would be to read the install instructions properly as flashing this the wrong way may have bad repercussions.
4EXT Recovery is now also available for the Desire Z / G2.
For the Vision, currently only one newer version is available which is 2.1.6 RC2.
