ClockworkMod recovery TouchThe Atrix 4G gets ClockworkMod Recovery Touch! The recovery is beginning to roll out for more devices now, and the Atrix 4G is one of the first few lucky devices that just got it’s share of the action. If you are an avid Android user with an already rooted device, this touch based recovery is something you seriously need to try out. Right now, the recovery can be downloaded and flashed flashed via ROM Manager from the market, but that however costs $1.99. A very minimal cost, considering the effort put into this thing, but you can always install it free of cost via ADB in two or three very quick commands.

    Where do you stick the file? Where is fastboot.exe? you just say Android SDK. I can’t find it in my phone. Sorry noob.

      Oh you mean in windows… I was looking for it on my phone. Working now. FYI you need to navigate to the folder in CMD with both the .img and fastboot.exe files for it to work.

    you need to put the device in fastboot mode first. then you can run those commands on the host.
