    All thanks to PlayfulGod who has made this possible.

    Most preferred method:
    Download this zip:
    Flashable zip
    Steps:
    1.) Put the zip in your SDCard.
    2.) Reboot into current recovery.
    3.) Flash the zip.
    4.) Reboot recovery!

    Done :D :D


    Method 2:
    Downloads:

    1.) Grab this: CWM-A70
    2.) Then this: Recovery.img

    Steps:
    1.) Extract the zip file to a folder of your choice.
    2.) Rename the downloaded recovery to "recovery5.img" (or whatever you like)
    3.) Turn off your mobile.
    4.) WHILE HOLDING THE CAMERA BUTTON, Connect the usb cable to the phone (and PC too :p).
    5.) Open cmd prompt and cd to the directory of your extracted folder.
    Example:
    If have extracted to D:\CWM-A70, then use:
    Code (Text):
    1. D:
    2. cd D:\CWM-A70
    6.) type:
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot-windows flash recovery recovery5.img
    7.) type:
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot-windows reboot
    8.) Done. Check the new recovery or post here for problems :)


    Alternative Method:
    (Using ADB, not fastboot. All thanks to sam. Tested by aditya)

    Latest RZRecovery:

    Hey guys, here's the latest RZRecovery for A70:
    Huge thanx to Raidzero (aka RZ :p ) for his efforts..

    The old RZRecovery didn't have working backups, this one works perfectly! (Observed till now.)

    Methods:
    1.) Using CWM recovery:
    Download this zip: RZRecovery
    And flash using CWM :)

    2.) Using the fastboot method:
    Extract the RZR.img from the zip and flash using fastboot (as specified above).

    P.S. Unlike in CWM, buttons for RZ are:
    Home (center button) for selection.
    Power for back.
    And volume keys for navigation.

    The CWM recovery will show 5.0.2.3 after this.
    And yeah, it's by PlayfulGod but it's not updated in ROM Manager somehow :(

    Ya ofcourse CMW will show 5.0.2.3,i was asking that why clockworkmod website shows like that n also rom manager.i got the answer that they have not updated yet.

    In CWM 5.0.2.0 onwards you donot need to put the rom in sdcard (yes that was a drawback of CWM) so people with big built in flash like SGII who never used sdcard could not do a rom boot from cwm <5.x

    ofcourse it may be faster.

    But I want to compile a cwm for myself how come this playfulgod does it.

    Just go for it doc. And pls test &tell whether you can use the option USB mount in the new recovery v 5.x

    In 4.x we can't do it. A lun error comes , at least for me. I've tried all sorts of partitioning.
