    It only has root and no roms at all. Do you even expect developers to be around right now? Wasn't this phone released about a month ago, too?

    You could install it, but it'd do you no good right now. As stated in the previous post, there are no roms for this phone, nor is there a custom recovery yet.

    Ooh. Do tell. I will be getting this (hopefully) tomorrow and was going to hold off on rooting it for lack of a recovery. If you have a good one and it works then I may just have to go ahead and root it, when I get it.

    Just a word of advice, flashing a recovery that's not for your phone from rom manager could possibly make your phone a permanent brick :) just warning you

    The flashing the recovery is usually not the problem. Tying to boot into said bad recovery is what will at the very least cause a black screen in the recovery menu. The worst that can happen is you have turned it into a paperweight. My first ever smart phone is still a paperweight/parts phone.
    Be patient, they (dev's) will figure out what is needed to modify a CWMod recovery to work properly with this phone.

    whose got a $1 for a working CWM???? j/k ;)

    And yes flashing a recovery for another device other than the one it is built for is just plain stupid and will in most cases give you a purty paper weight.

    And with that said I will let Shabbypenguin post the cwm recovery as he did most of the work for it. I just helped him on a few finishing touches. ;)
