For the unaware, let me quickly explain that ClockworkMod Recovery is a custom recovery tool that is much powerful than the stock recovery. It lets you install custom ROMs, modded kernel, overclock processor, perform a NANDROID backup, Wipe card, and flash zip files.

Disclaimer: Proceed at your own risk. Android Total is not responsible if your device gets bricked or damaged during the process.
