    Great video demo – I followed it (and others) and when I test to see the recovery screen, I get what looks like a factory recovery – it does not say Clockwork Touch anywhere on the screen AND it certainly doesn’t let me use touch to do it.

    Yes, Odin gave me a big fat Green PASS when I flashed it.
