4Ext Recovery is a alternative to Clockworkmod (CWM) recovery. At the time of this writing it supports the following devices: HTC Sensation / XE, Incredible S / 2, Desire Z / G2, Desire S, Desire, Desire HD, Inspire 4G, myTouch 4G, Nexus One, Thunderbolt, Evo 3D GSM / CDMA, Amaze Prerequisites: Your phone should be ROOTED and S-OFF. According to the author of the app, an alternative is a unlocked boot loader. I have only used this on a rooted phone with S-Off. Do I recommend it? I can only speak for the HTC Desire HD. For this device I would say yes. While there is nothing wrong with CWM, some HTC Desire HD ROM's require 4Ext Recovery to get all the features. For example, with Android Revolution HD, if you do not use 4Ext Recovery, you wont be able to enable the over clocking daemon. Other than that it is nice, has an easy to use touch interface.
