Work In Progress to Give HD2 Touch Screen-Enabled Recovery

The legendary HTC HD2 gets a lot of cool modifications. The phone can run 3 different operating systems and holds the throne as the most developed phone of all time.

And it doesn’t stop there, as XDA Senior Member munjeni has recently released a touch-capable version of ClockworkMod Recovery for those running Android on the HTC HD2. It’s a pretty cool modification to an otherwise stable and effective recovery, as it’s big claim to fame is that it gives those tired, worn out volume rockers and power button a well deserved breather. It instead gives the user a few touch buttons on the bottom of the screen that the user can use to navigate the always familiar ClockworkMod interface.

The features are pretty simple and so far it’s been updated daily since it’s initial release just a few days ago. It’s most recent update, which was today, includes:

- fixed glitches during boot
– added stock cwm theme with cyan text color
– added button effects

It’s evidence that munjeni is willing to support this until it works perfectly, so for those holding out til it’s completely done should probably keep tabs on the original thread. There you can find additional screen shots, a full change log for every update and download links along with installation instructions. As with any recovery installation, there’s always the danger of something going wrong and permanently damaging your phone, so be sure to exercise caution! For those running Android on their HD2, it’s definitely something worth checking out.
