ClockworkMod Recovery is probably the most well-known custom recovery for Android devices, but its development has been fairly static for the last few months. Its author, Koushik Dutta, has been hard at work on the latest iteration, ClockworkMod 6.0, and its now available for Galaxy Nexus devices in ROM Manager.
The new version brings some major, and long-awaited features, including iterative backups (and therefore much faster backups), the ability to restore 2GB+ files, bug fixes and UI tweaks.
In regards to ROM Manager the app, Koush says it will shortly receive an overhaul:
ROM Manager is a little over 2 years old, and though it has grown in features quite a bit since its first incarnation, parts are starting to show its age. I’ve been contemplating a significant UI rewrite for some time now, and will pull the trigger on that shortly. I also want to add in some features that I am hoping will be of some interest:
- A paid ROM section for devs to publish their work and support their hobby.
- Upload your current ROM to ROM Manager for anyone to use, from the device.
- Connect ROM Manager to the Recovery Builder for automatic updates of recovery. No device left behind
