Download and Install CWM Touch Recovery For Galaxy SIII GT-I9300 – Development of SGS3 phone has been very rapidly growing recently. Many mods and apps have been created for this Samsung’s latest Android 4.0.4 flagship powered with quadcore processor in it. We’ve seen CyanogenMod 9 (CM9), AOKP ROM and modded Camera app have been developed and released for this beloved smartphone. And we are so luckily having this phone on hands after a week in waiting.
We’ve also seen that a root method has been discovered either manually or using the toolkit. Each root method has already included a feature to install ClockworkMod Recovery, the best custom recovery app in the world. As a de facto standard, you’ll get the original CWM which requires pressing either home, power and volume up or down. But a revolutionary breakthrough has been achieved modding original CWM to be touch-capable.
