The custom recovery allows you to do all sorts of lovely things such as installing ROM update zips (for the forthcoming custom ROMs), wiping various parts of the device, backing up and restoring and much more.
You can enter recovery mode by turning your device on while holding down 'volume up' and 'send' (green) then powering on your device.
