General Info
Hello all. I had some cm code lying around a couple months ago, so decided to try to compile twrp for the desire. I ended up failing miserably, however what i got out of this was a decently working build of ClockworkMod touch. All credits go to Koush and the rest of cm team who worked on originally creating cwm. All i did was compile it using the latest code (at the time) and run it through the cm jenkins build server to get the touch functionality. It honestly wasnt very hard, so dont thank me too much Anyways, this probably wont be the most popular due to the fact that 4ext seems to be the go-to recovery for the desire, but i thought I'd share anyways rather than leaving it on my desktop for the rest of eternity. Some people might actually like it as afaik the latest available version for the desire is 5.8.0.2 (feel free to correct me if im wrong) so this is a pretty nice upgrade i guess. Enjoy

Downloads

CWM Touch 6.0.3.5
-Dev-Host
-Mediafire
-md5 checksum: dc4a4067ae7fc8456034293cad5cc76a

CWM 6.0.4.5 with Touch Swipe Controls
-Dev-Host
-md5 checksum: e5308a41d96a4cd94c97a07ad83ed223

Bugs
-When you boot into it, you get a message saying "Warning: no file_contexts" for a couple of seconds before the recovery menu comes up. This seems to be harmless.
-Let me know if you find anything else

Instructions

1. Setup fastboot and install these drivers.

2. Download the provided recovery.img file and put it on your desktop. Check that the md5 checksum is correct.

3. Turn your phone off. Boot it into fastboot using back button + power button, then plug it into your computer. On your phone it should now say "FASTBOOT USB".

4. Open command prompt and enter the following commands:
Code:
fastboot devices
If your phone (serial number) shows up continue. If not, it means that your drivers aren't installed correctly and your computer cannot recognize the phone. Do not continue until you are able to get fastboot devices to return the serial number of your phone.
Code:
cd Desktop
Code:
fastboot flash recovery FilenameOfRecovery.img
After the installation is finished, proceed to the next step. (it should only take a few seconds to install)

5. Unplug the phone, and go back into the bootloader. From there you can scroll down to RECOVERY, and boot into it.

Thats great
I think it was possible to create spare backups (or whatrver its called, it just backups changed files) with that version, right?

I will try it later @home.

Aww thats unfortunate. I thought i read somewhere that with the next generation of 4ext there would be plans to add support for newer devices such as the n4, but the developer seems to have slowed down.

I just realized that this actually has a decent amount of downloads considering how dead this thread is.

Is anyone interested in the latest cwm (6.0.4.5) with swipe controls?

Cool. Here it is: http://www.mediafire.com/download/13.../recovery6.img
Currently the swipe controls are only working with up/down (scrolling), but swiping left/right isnt working so you need to use the trackpad to select.
