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.

Mysterious GG1 Google Device Stops by FCC. Glass v2?

As the year progresses, we draw further away from Google's annual I/O conference, and closer to the time when the latest hardware from Mountain View is made available to the public. While I/O itself remains one of the most popular tech conferences, the hardware unveiling is a contrastively low-key post across social media, but nonetheless, remains an exciting and much awaited event. In the months leading up to the unveiling, a host of leaks take place, revealing various info about...

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it.
