Earlier I covered a guide on how to gain S-Off on HTC Sensation 4G using Revolutionary. That tool is also suppose to install ClockworkMod recovery, however, some users have reported that the recovery does not get installed in some cases. There is also a manual method in place to ensure that you can still customize your phone. XDA-Developers forum member “ikhzter” has produced a handy guide to provide us with ClockworkMod recovery 4 image in a flashable zip file to install on HTC Sensation 4G.
Those of you who might be wondering what ClockworkMod recovery can do, custom recoveries allow you to flash unsigned files based on ZIP packages and flash custom ROMs with ease. You can backup your entire ROM, as a complete image, so that you can revert back to it if something goes wrong due to the installation of a new ROM, or after installing a mod that messes up your device.

Step 4: Once the file is flashed, reboot your device.
Step 5: After your device is booted, remove the file from the SD card or simply rename it to something else, (otherwise each time you try to go into the boot-loader, the phone will ask you to install that file).
