I have used both, and I like the touch screens on TWRP but it has stop working from time to time. CWM has always worked for me, but no touch screen. Sometime the OLD WAYS ARE THE BEST WAYS. Just my opinion.

Up and Down volume to move up or down and the power button to select what function you want to perform.

I have tried BEANSTALK 4.4.2 and VANIR 4.1.2 - 4.4.2. both were very fast but both ran the battery down to fast for me. Right now I am running stock, with all of the apps, that I do not want to run, disabled. I purchased Rom Toolbox pro to play with the look and feel of the phone and use the CPU Control for better battery life. I have been looking at Carbon so I may flash it in a minute.

Ok so I flashed Carbon and man I LOVE THIS Rom. So far so good, but I did (with the help of other) have to fix a couple of things, but this rom is the $h1T.

Hi
Could you guide me to the right thread, if available, or maybe state the steps you took to install CWM and have it work properly on your device, if possible?
I am really finding it confusing to install a recovery on the E-988 OGPro. There are many comments on the recovery threads where users are getting it wrong or where OPs fail to update or clarify the process of installing the recovery. Thanks in advance.

Does freegee work with the 988? It seemed like a pretty straightforward method. I used it for twrp and it worked flawlessly.
