** UPDATE **
Needless to say, this project has been abandoned. However, please note the source for my contribution has been shared since day one and is still available (https://github.com/davidmroth
). While I'm not available to provide individual support, I am more to happy to provide support of any new projects based off the Dell StreakMod Recovery source. Thanks you all for your support and encouragement!
Here is a little project I have been working on for quite sometime now. It's another Recovery based on work from Koush (Clockwork). My goal was to create a Dell Streak specific implementation with a stock look and feel.
This is in early development and I am pretty sure it has bugs But hopefully, with feed back from the XDA community, this can become great tool.

- Capacitive buttons
- First stage of the two stage camera button works
