Team UtterChaos Brings You Touch-Enabled Recovery on Even More Devices

We’ve already brought you reports of a work in progress for the HTC HD2 getting touch-enabled recovery. As it turns out, there’s several other phones who’ve had it for a couple weeks already.

Thanks to the devoted work of Team UtterChaos, featuring XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD along with XDA Senior Member Napster.

There’s a few phones they’re actively supporting their touch-enabled recovery on. For those who are unfamiliar, touch-enabled recovery is a recovery that utilizes touch screen controls to navigate instead of the old school volume rocker + power button method. We can all agree, those poor hardware buttons could use a little break, right?

Okay, down to the grit. Among the supported devices are the Huawei Ideos X6 and for those who want to check it out can do so right here.

Those wielding the Sony Xperia ARC have a few more options, as you can check it out via DooMLoRD’s kernel for Gingerbread, and Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s also available in Stock Gingerbread form as well.

And, lastly, for those on the Sony Xperia Play can pick it up via DooMLoRD’s kernel here. You can now also grab up this awesome touch recovery in a stock kernel build here.

Update
For those carrying the Samsung SL i9003, Team UtterChaos hasn’t forgotten about you! Teammate Napster has released a test build for his recovery which you can check out in his kernel here.

It is important to note that all the touch enabled recoveries are based on the legendary and always awesome ClockworkMod Recovery. So you already know it’ll work.

So for those with the aforementioned devices, if you’d like to check out the touch-enabled recoveries on some awesome kernels from a couple of XDA’s finest, then hit up the source links and check em out! For everyone else, the UtterChaos train is firmly rolling, so don’t be surprised to see them working on other devices very soon!

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
