TeamWIN has released TWRP recovery for the Samsung Hercules!
For those who do not know, TWRP is a touchscreen, GUI based recovery, akin to CWM touch.

Credits to the people who put the CWM flashable zip together:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Backups/nandroids made with CWM do NOT work with TWRP. I would suggest installing the recovery while on a stable rom (Gingerbread), making a backup, then installing the ICS roms.

TWRP is also themeable - search around for TWRP 2.X themes and you will find plenty.
To use themes, rename the zip file to ui.zip (if it doesn't already have that name) and place it in /sdcard/TWRP/theme [create the directory if necessary].
If you're looking for a great ics theme, check out my theme at the bottom of the post [based on this.

[Studies show that this does NOT cause bricks. Any bricks that were caused were found to be due to user error/that leaky ICS skyrocket rom. However, as always, exercise caution when flashing roms/kernels/modems/etc...]

[Further, this recovery seems to work as well or better than CWM Touch or standard CWM for flashing AOSP roms (CM9/AOKP). If you plan to flash one of those, you would be better off using this recovery.]

[With this recovery, it does not seem to be necessary to use Darkside Super Wipe/Fix Permissions script. The built-in wipe/fix works just as well.]

SWEETness. i like this recovery a lot more than clockwork mod.. at least the versions i used on the HTC sensation 4g

my favorite recovery was 4EXT or something like that, but team win makes a good one


BTW,

this works on our device, just change the first line of the update-script file to this:

assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "SGH-T989" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "SGH-T989" || getprop("ro.product.board") == "MSM8660_SURF");

(or just erase the whole first line)

thanks for sharing!

EDIT:
it's pretty awesome, a touch screen GUI recovery with a lot of options CWM doesn't have.. just make the edits to the update-script like i said above, rezip it, flash it ! sorry i can't post screenshots, no camera besides my phone!

It is just a text file you can edit it in NotePad called update-script.. I am not sure what the rules are regarding me posting a link to it, but i can PM you a link to the flashable zip i made.
