Android-powered smartphones are dime a dozen out there, but one of the things which actually make the Nexus range of devices from Google happen to be the fact that they are a whole lot more developer-friendly. So, the recently announced batch of Android One smartphones could very well be as developer-friendly.
Someone from the xda-developers forum has managed to successfully port over the ClockworkMod recovery in order to have it run on the first three Android One smartphones.
Android One happens to be a platform that Google has thought up of, working alongside smartphone manufacturers to deliver extremely affordable Android smartphones that will offer a reliable software experience. Having ClockworkMod recovery installed, these handsets can be easily rooted, to perform backups or restore disk partitions, as well as perform other changes.
