Want ClockworkMod Touch on your rooted Nexus S or Nexus S 4G?
You can easily do this with the ROM Manager app if you are willing to donate a small amount of $2. And if you can afford it, I highly encourage you to do that as the developers work hard and don’t get paid enough.
For those of you college students and alike who can’t afford even two dollars, you can install it manually too using fastboot.
Step 1. Put your Nexus S or Nexus S 4G into fastboot mode by holding down Volume Up and Power button together after power off. Then connect microUSB cable from your phone to your computer.
Step 2. For those of you on Windows, make sure you’ve installed drivers. (No drivers needed for Mac/Linux).
Next, download and unzip nexussrecoverytouch.zip.
Step 3. Open up a command prompt and browse to the directory where you unzipped the files to.
Step 4. Type the following to flash:
For Nexus S:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-220.127.116.11-crespo.img
For Nexus S 4G:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-18.104.22.168-crespo4g.img
For Mac, replace “fastboot” with “./fastboot-mac”.
For Linux, replace “fastboot” with “./fastboot-linux”.

Step 5. Next, you can enter Recovery and find ClockworkMod Touch on your Nexus S or Nexus S 4G. Remember, if you are not on a custom ROM, your OS might erase recovery on next boot so we highly suggest you to run a custom ROM.
