Android Hacker Tool ClockworkMod Now Has Mainstream-Friendly Touch Controls

By Gary Cutlack on at

If you spend your spare time huddled over mobile phone boot screens fiddling with things THEY don't want you really fiddling with, one step in the process has just got a little easier thanks to new touchscreen controls in recovery tool ClockworkMod.

The app has adapted the Android 4.0 software buttons as demonstrated by the Galaxy Nexus to give users an easy way to toggle through the tool's settings, which is a much easier solution that the original version's awkward combinations of button presses.

It's now marginally easier to turn your £500 superphone into a shiny paperweight that won't turn on. [RootzWiki via Droid-Life & Engadget]
