Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Unofficial ClockworkMod Recovery Released for the Nexus 10
Well that didn’t take very long, did it? The new series of Nexus devices has been released, and developers have already started getting their hands dirty coding for the new toys. As they are Google devices, their bootloaders are unlockable. And after only a couple of Fastboot commands, they are ready to be developed on. The Nexus 10 got its first big piece of development with the release of an unofficial build of ClockworkMod Recovery.
XDA Senior Member shimp208 ran the stock recovery.img through the old ClockworkMod Builder and released the results. They are the 184.108.40.206 versions and there is a touch and non-touch version available.
While there are a lot of members who would love to help test it, most Nexus 10 tablets haven’t been delivered yet. So this is a truly untested recovery. Thus, proceed at your own risk. To help reduce the risk of potential soft bricks, shimp208 has put up a warning for users who don’t intend on testing. We’ll echo that here: Don’t flash if you don’t intend to test it. Once it has been thoroughly tested, the okay will be given and users can start flashing things all they want. For those that do want to test it, you’ll have to flash it via Fastboot, as there are no alternate methods right now.

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
