If you are not that big fan of TWRP Recovery and would rather have ClockworkMod on your HTC Desire C, you are in luck. The CWM Recovery is now available for your beloved HTC Desire C and you can get it up and running on your phone in a few minutes.

The entire procedure only takes a few minutes and gets the recovery up on your phone without any hassle. What the procedure does is use TWRP to flash CWM and that is it.

Once CWM Recovery is up on your phone, you should be able to reboot into it and perform many of the tasks that you may already be doing with TWRP, such as fully backing up the phone, installing custom files, wiping the phone data, and so on.
