Awesome. This will make rooting even easier. Just unlock, flash CWM and then install su from there.

Does this recovery work?

I have flashed the same recovery via rom manager and it just comes up with a black screen

Koush has said he will fix it in the next few days

Protip: Test something before you post it. This does NOT work at the time of writing.

This was already posted a few days ago and it was stated that it didnt work and the link removed.

I have removed the link from the original post until its working and then the first person to post the information (or the developer) will have the right to post it.

Mark.
