    Default Recovery Version

    I have two Gnex, bought 3 weeks apart. I have uninstalled Rom Manager from both.

    One when I reboot into recovery has CWM Recovery version 5.8.0.2 and the other has 6.0.1.0.1. The 5 version has larger letters and can be controlled by touch or volume and power button. The 6 version can only be controlled by the volume and power buttons. I don't know how to change the version and wonder if anybody can enlighten me. I prefer the 5 version if that matters.

    Uninstalling ROM manager does not change your recovery. Cwm did upgrade like a month or so ago I think so if you flashed Cwm from ROM manager that could explain the different versions. Either way I have been using TWRP for a couple months so I have not kept up much with Cwm. Maybe somebody else can chime in and help you out. Also, it sounds like one is the touch version and the other is just the regular.

    CWM 5 was a touch based recovery and 6 isn't. I believe that there is a CWM 6 that is touch since I had it on my Nexus 7 but I highly recommend TWRP. Personally think it's the best and easiest touch recovery.

    Is there not a touch version of 6 at clockworkmod.com? You may have to fsstboot it.

    personally, I use twrp as well. However, if you want to use can 5.4.0.4, simply find the image somewhere, and download to your computer. Then boot into bootloader.
    The next last assumed you have fastboot.exe and all of your drivers properly installed.
    Once in bootloader, move the img file you downloaded to platform tools folder of your sdk, then open a command prompt
    Type in fastboot flash recovery name_of_file.img
    It will install it, and you are good

    The latest versions of CWM for various devices are available from www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager.

    The files are image files that need to be flashed to your Galaxy Nexus using fastboot.
