Auto Installer for Sony Xperia Line Helps Get ClockworkMod Recovery to Users Easier

xperia cwm thing

Installing a recovery on a phone has the potential to be challenging. On some devices, it’s as easy as flashing a kernel. On others, it’s knowing how to use ADB in your command prompt (or terminal) to push the recovery to the correct partition and hope you didn’t just turn your beautiful device into a very expensive paperweight.

In either case, XDA Senior Member pvyParts and friends have posted an application that will install a recovery straight from the app itself. No need for computers, debug mode or any of the other potential problems some people may have with other methods. Says pvyParts:

This App will work with the 2011 Xperia porfolio. it will install CWM into the system partition so you

Koush Teases Fully Touch-Enabled ClockwordMod Recovery

touch cwm

We’ve previously shown you some touch-enabled recoveries: for one, the fully touch-based 4EXT Recovery Touch, but also modded CWM versions. However, both had their own shortcomings; while the modded CWM versions use on-screen buttons which emulate the functions of hardware keys, without taking full advantage of the touchscreen, not everyone might be willing to change to a completely different recovery if they’re already used to ClockworkMod. But what if – what if ClockwordMod was updated with a fully touch-based interface?

Apparently, that’s coming soon, as CWM developer Koush is teasing in a new video. It shows the usual ClockwordMod Recovery, but with enlarged list items tha. . . READ ON »

Popular AGPS Patch Now Available on HTC Desire S

google-maps-track

For those who are unfamiliar with AGPS Patch, XDA Senior Member crypted gives a brief explanation:

This patch was created to provide quick GPS locking across North America. But, it has been ported into a worldwide solution for multiple devices. Using a general ROM without this has resulted in 10+ minutes of GPS delay. Also, GPS lock kept being lost. By using this patch, most people experience a GPS lock within 10 seconds (2 – 20 seconds range can be expected). Typically, a device using this patch will lock onto 7 – 9 satellites. Users have reported up to 11 satellites being locked at once. Without this patch, the average satellite count is 4.

Well, now users who own a HTC Desire S join the already impress. . . READ ON »

Samsung Galaxy Mini Gets ClockworkMod and RZ Recovery

RZ_RECOVERY_2

Users of the Samsung Galaxy Mini have had a lot of excitement. Not long ago, CyanogenMod9 was successfully ported to it and it’s also had CM7 for quite some time.

XDA Senior Member squadzone has kept the train rolling on the development for the Galaxy Mini with his simultaneous release of RZ Recovery and ClockworkMod Recovery. This gives users a more familiar recovery experience and makes the process of making back ups and flashing ROMs a little easier.

Both recoveries work perfectly fine, with the exception of the RZ Recovery being unable to read ClockworkMod backups. The feature list for the RZ Recovery is:
