    It a recovery program that is able to execute before the phone boots into the OS.

    Some of the functions

    Backup
    Restore
    Wipe Data
    Wipe Cache
    Wipe Dalvik cache
    fix permissions
    wipe battery stats
    install roms in "update.zip" format

    probably some others I can't remember

    it allows you to create a backup recovery of the system. Its useful if you end up bricking your phone you have something to roll back on.

    I don't care what it does, I just do it because it voids the warranty... Livin on the edge baby! :p

    CWM has been a lifesaver on many occasions, it is definitely a most have.

    I tried the volume wake mod and i did a nandroid before hand but after I did the changes for the mod it was stuck at the dual core screen so I tried to reboot into recovery but it wouldn't let me boot into CMR instead it woukd bring me to motorola's recovery. Is there another method that will get me to CMR? Anyways I had to flash the sbf to get my phone working again

    If the bootloader gets unlock, then yes for sure.

    My bet it'll be the Prime if Verizon gets it. It's a Nexus. Nexus=Dev phone! :p

    When a particular rom does not have these options when holding the power button, I use an app called Quick Boot. It has an option to boot directly into recovery.

    I'm hoping most of the work done with the Bionic can be ported easily. Seems reasonable.

    Running a backup now!

    Any estimates on when you think there will be some added customizations as a result of this?

    And one more question: what exactly does a locked bootloader prevent? I've heard custom roms still work you just can't change the kernel. What's the significance?

    Some people say you can't overclock, but the Droid X had a locked bootloader, and you could.
