What is ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM)

ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) is a replacement recovery option for Android devices, we may also say that ,
ClockworkMod recovery is a special boot mode that gives access to administrative functions, such as installing the base firmware (ROM), making backups, and performing a 'factory reset'.
Features such as Nandroid backup, adb shell, advanced update.zip are provided in CWM 
The Rom Manager app may be used for installing CWM, overwriting the device's stock recovery. As with the stock recovery, CWM can apply software changes to the device. Unlike the stock recovery, CWM is able to entirely replace the device's primary Android operating system ("flashing a new ROM"), including with aftermarket replacements such as CyanogenMod. Once installed, CWM it is accessed by turning your phone off, then triggering the bootloader prompt by holding down some device-dependent button combination as it is turned on.
CWM is also known as clockwork and CW recovery.
