Clockwork Mod v5.0.2.8 Touch For Samsung Galaxy Mini/Pop GT-S5570

Team UtterChaos is a group that features xda-recognized developer, DooMLoRD and senior member, Napster. And, together they are working to get on-screen touch navigation controls for clockwork mod recovery. According to the developers, most of the work is based on basic touch capabilities that are ported from SteamMod Recovery by sztupy. They have been working on this project for past few months and have already released the working version of touch-enabled recovery on various devices including phones like Ideos X6, Samsung Galaxy SL, SE Xperia X10, Arc, PLAY and even some tablets such as HTC Flyer and Kindle Fire. Few days ago they managed to merge the source code for various devices into one common repository and released it to the public.

Clockwork Mod Touch
The developers aim to provide the source to any developer who need or want it to port this touch based recovery to devices that doesn't yet support it. This is what they have to say :
we are well aware that koush is already working on a touch version of CWM recovery... we do not mean to compete with anyone... since we have been working on this for a while, we felt others might benefit from this and learn something new, we sure did learn a LOT ourselves throughout this project..

That's all. You now have got Clockwork mod v5.0.2.8 touch recovery on your galaxy pop/mini gt-s5570 smartphone. You will now see four buttons (Back, Up, Down and Confirm/Select in left to right order) at the bottom of the recovery and you can now use them to navigate through the recovery options. The buttons will also work even if you touch above far (just) above them so don't get confused. The developer says that it is made so, so that users will be able to navigate around even without the need of pinpoint contact with the buttons. Also, thanks to squadzone, he kept the previous controls back in the recovery --meaning, you can also use power button or home button to select or confirm an option. So, have a nice time playing around with your recovery.
