I'm currently using CWM.

You will be able to install other awesom3 based rom

But you'll need to revert to a non-awesom3 recovery to flash other roms

a significant update to the recovery.

as I said before, I've been using a custom 'android-4.4-recovery' branch, which misses out most of the features of the main 'android-4.4' branch because the phone wouldn't boot with the updated msm_fb. Yesterday, fixed that with the help of Dees_Troy, and now, the recovery.img compiled with the ROM is ready for direct usage, and is even LZMA compressed automatically (thanks to Dees_Troy again, for the commits).

This means not a lot to the normal user, but just know that even the recovery now uses the shiny new framebuffer from CAF 'msm-3.4' branch.

Also, I'm planning on switching to a standardized 128 mB userdata, 8 mB cache, and 1 mB devlog partition sizes. This would help making something 'standard' for the users, and this should also avoid the complications of switching the recoveries when switching ROMs.
