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.
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?
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.
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!
