- Beware, some of your earlier Backups might just show md5sum mismatch. [happened with me] So just keep earlier recovery update.zip in /sdcard, just in case.
- The backup format for this recovery is .tar and not .img, this is done [not by me, by koush and CWM developers ] to reduce size of each backup. So, backup generated by using this version are not supported by earlier Recovery releases. But this release can use earlier releases' backup.
I am not to be held liable/responsible if you damage your phone by following/not following this thread.
- koush for his CWM bootable recovery sources.
- Steam recovery sources by SteamMOD for touch input related modifications.
- k1chy for testing this touch based CWM recovery on his ideosX6 device. (Since my device is bricked right now, I can not test it )
P.S.: I have purposefully kept same format as for my older post of CWM Recovery v3, so that it will be helpful for any new user to grasp everything at single place.
