    Back then I did it on windows, one of those one-click root.

    No idea about the recovery. I didn't do any system dump and never got clockworked. Now I know that was such a terrible idea.

    Code:
    #!/system/bin/sh
    
    echo -n boot-recovery | busybox dd of=/dev/block/nandf count=1 conv=sync; sync; reboot
    
    busybox mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak

    Mate I tried that, after the busybox mount, in another terminal window and says...


    |1st terminal|

    dukkha-post@Dukkha-Ubuntu:~$ adb shell
    shell@android:/ $ su
    shell@android:/ # busybox mount -o remount,rw /system
    shell@android:/ #


    |2nd terminal|
    dukkha-post@Dukkha-Ubuntu:~$ adb push /home/dukkha-post/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    failed to copy '/home/dukkha-post/install-recovery.sh' to '/system/etc/install-recovery.sh': Permission denied
    dukkha-post@Dukkha-Ubuntu:~$ adb shell
    127|shell@android:/ $ su
    shell@android:/ # adb push /home/dukkha-post/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    error: device not found
    1|shell@android:/ #


    dukkha-post@Dukkha-Ubuntu:~$ adb push install-recovery.sh /system/etc/
    failed to copy 'install-recovery.sh' to '/system/etc//install-recovery.sh': Permission denied
    dukkha-post@Dukkha-Ubuntu:~$ adb shell
    shell@android:/ $ su
    shell@android:/ # adb push install-recovery.sh /system/etc/
    error: device not found
    1|shell@android:/ #



    No luck yet :(

    Are you sure you have the file install-recovery.sh created ? You might try to push another known file.

    Yes, I even tried making it to another location, same result. I re-made the file and put it in different folders: not working.

    Well if you can't write to system either, then there is nothing else I can think of.

    It's ok. I'll try it again sometimes but I believe the tablet is in limbo so it won't come back. Thank you a lot for you help mate!!

    I'm gonna ask an extremely newb and possibly stupid question. Can I just drag and drop the boot.img from my dump into the zip file and delete the cm9_boot.img?

    Ok, so I take that as a no. Glad I read this in time. Was close to trying it since I always restore different boot images on other roms on my phone, I figured it would be the same for a tablet.

    CM 9 CM 10 and so on need a certain boot.img to work, it's different from stock boot.img.
