    Hi folks. I'm looking to upgrade to a 4.2 ROM, but understand it is recommended to be on an updated version of CWM prior to flashing. So I am requesting if anyone can please provide a flashable zip file for the latest CWM, preferably touch. I've been looking all over for it, but can only find the .IMG files. Thank you so much!

    I am pretty sure cwm has not updated yet which is why the updated twrp is the recovery of choice for 4.2

    Edit: Oops I may have misspoken don't be too mad

    Time to learn how to fastboot an img file!

    It's seriously easy, and something you have no excuse to not be able to do if you own a Nexus device and are a power user (one who unlocks, roots, flashes, tweaks things, etc).

    Download the img and:
    fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img

    That's it

    Incorrect, CWM has been updated. The latest version is 6.0.1.5, and it's available as both touch and non-touch versions.

    Thanks for the reply. I am well versed in flashbooting .img files. My issue is my lack of access to a PC for the next few days. So if anyone can provide me with the zip file, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again!

    I feel I've been preaching this since seeing the light a few days ago, so why stop now. Download goomanager from the play store. Hit menu<install openrecoveryscript and enjoy TWRP. It'll auto dl and remove CWM. You'll quickly forget about CWM.
