Amon Ra recovery was my all-time favorite for the original HTC EVO 4G. It just worked – it did not suffer the issues that plagued ClockworkMod with wiping the dalvik cache, and it was just rock solid from the ground up. Now, a developer going by Smelkus has updated the recovery and added some much needed features.

Among the new features are combo wipes, one of which will do Caulkin’s Superwipe three times; a nandroid script to auto-reboot upon completing a backup or restore, so your phone is not sitting around waiting for you to choose to reboot; compressed backups to save space and occasionally time; ADB as root; capacitive button support; and some theme and font options. It’s also compatible with existing ClockworkMod backups.

Reading the change logs, the past several versions have been released just to add features and not to stomp out any bugs, so it appears to carry on the Amon Ra stability banner.

If you’re wanting an actively developed and supported recovery based off of probably the most stable and functional recovery ever made for the EVO 4G, this is a really fine one to check out.
