Hi, this is my first post and I hope it can help you!!!

How to install the latest ClockWorkMod Touch recovery .img easily from the Android Terminal.

First think you need to know is that before do that, you already have your phone ROOTED.

1. Search the model and Download the latest Touch recovery from: clockworkmod.com/rommanager

2. Put the downloaded .img file in the root of your SD Card or phone

3. Rename the file to "recovery.img" (without quotes)

4. Download And install from the Market the app "Android Terminal Emulator" (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm)

5. Open the Terminal Emulator and grant root access

6. Type:
>su
>dd if=/storage/sdcard0/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 bs=4096
>sync
(Note: in my case /storage/sdcard0/is the route where I put the recovery.img, change that with your route)

7. Type:
>reboot recovery

And enjoy you touch ClockWorkMod recovery

Why that way is what's missing from your post what is the benefit .
Most users will use the standard Odin method .
Plus many use the later safer versions like Philz or TWRP .

The idea is to bring another method to flash a recovery directly from your phone without need to convert the .img file into a .tar file. Just like do the app ROM Manager

When you download the CWM from the web page, come in a .img file

The vanilla CWM recovery images come as *.img files in which case this method is of some utility. Just a kind of a good thing to know in case you want to flash the latest CWM recovery rather than wait for Philz or use an alternative like TWRP.
