We have confirmation that ClockworkMod 4 recovery is now available for the Motorola Droid / Milestone! This comes in from RootzWiki forum member birdman who apparently was bored and decided to give this a go. Of course, not to forget Koush who pioneered the ClockworkMod recovery. While Droid / Milestone owners have been making it around the Android world with the bootstrap recovery, the owners can’t really complain about that, as it is still a fully functional recovery without any serious bugs to it. However, with the Droid / Milestone coming of age, it is refreshing to see something new for the device, and a genuine ClockworkMod recovery is always useful.
If you have no clue what ClockworkMod recovery is, you should see our guide on what is ClockworkMod recovery for Android and how to use it. Normally the font color for CWM recovery is orange, but this time around it is blue for the devices, so as we mentioned before, refreshing.
How to get this up on your Droid / Milestone? Pretty easy actually, we’ll show you how.
