ClockworkMod recovery is now available for the HTC myTouch 4G aka HTC Glacier. The ClockworkMod Recovery simply outclasses the Stock Android recovery in terms of functionality and features such as the Nandroid Backup, custom ROMs & USB mass storage mode, etc.
The special features of the recovery that we are covering is that it not only allows you to switch between the stock recovery and the ClockworkMod recovery when required, it also allows you to flash custom ROM’s based on both the ext2 and ext3 file system, so if you have an HTC myTouch4G and are willing to slip down the extremely slippery slope of heavy customization and upgradations through custom ROMs, read on.
