Team UtterChaos Releases Touch-Enabled Recovery For Kindle Fire and HTC Flyer

Team UtterChaos has been steadily moving along with their work. When last we saw them, they released touch enabled recovery on a pretty good number of phones.

Well, the list has grown once again. Team UtterChaos, comprised of XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD and XDA Senior Member Napstar, have begun adding tablets to their list of supported devices.

For those toting the Amazon Kindle or the HTC Flyer, you now have the option to use a touch-enabled recovery.

For those with the HTC Flyer, you can find your touch enabled recovery thread right here. It’s packed with features, based on ClockworkMod4 and is easily flashable over recovery. However, it is still a beta version so there are some bugs and warnings. Says DooMLoRD:

THIS RECOVERY IS STILL IN TESTING… MAKE SURE THAT U HAVE UR COMPLETE DATA BACKED-UP (INCLUDING SDCARD DATA)…

and incase this doest work correctly make sure that u can restore to factory condition…

“Partition SDCard” option in CWM5 WILL WIPE UR EXTERNAL SDCARD!!!

I have only tested it to work on my WIFI Flyer… please check if it works for the 3G version… if 3G version uses a different partition table THEN DO NOT USE IT ON 3G VERSION!

So make sure you exercise the correct caution before flashing, including making a backup and making sure you can get factory reset back to stock.

For those toting the Kindle Fire, you can find your touch-enabled recovery thread right here. This is still in alpha testing, as DooMLoRD says:

THIS RECOVERY IS STILL IN TESTING… MAKE SURE THAT U HAVE UR COMPLETE DATA BACKED-UP (INCLUDING SDCARD DATA)…
and incase this doest work correctly make sure that u can restore to factory condition…
DO NOT rapidly tap the on-screen buttons…

So if you have either device and want to check it out, make sure you take a little pre-flash caution but otherwise have fun. It’s only a matter of time before they’re completely stable.
