After making its way to a variety of devices over the last week, including the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus S & the Motorola Atrix 4G, the HTc Desire and the Galaxy S2, the Touch-based Clockworkmod recovery has now landed on another set of developer favorites, the LG Optimus 3d P920 and the LG Thrill 4G
XDA member Paki0402 has released a version of the CWM Touch Recovery for the LG Optimus 3D this week. When I think about it, this could really be the next big thing as far as custom recoveries go, as it takes away the stress that the Power and volume rocker buttons go through, especially at the hands of obsessively compulsive ROM and kernel flashers like your’s truly! Plus, it’s time CWM Recovery went through a ‘coolness’ makeover, from it’s otherwise industrial look. By the way, this version has also been found to working fine on the LG Thrill 4G. As the old adage goes, it’s two birds with one recovery for the dev.
