In order to do this, you need to have your bootloader unlocked and fastboot working. If you haven't already see here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...52434-howto-unlocking-bootloader-windows.html Files to download: Works with both ICS and JB: A2109_CWMrecovery-22.214.171.124a.img Dev-Host - A2109_CWMrecovery-126.96.36.199a.img - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service MD5: e7501de26fe8a9fc453773f5710675fa (Edit: the A2109_CWMrecovery-188.8.131.52a.img file goes on your PC, not the A2109) If you need to root, also download: Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip http://downloads.noshufou.netdna-cdn.com/superuser/Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip Copy Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip to your A2109. It can go on either the internal or external sd card (you can put it in a folder if you want). Connect your tablet to your PC. On your PC, open a command prompt window (or terminal for Linux). Reboot into the bootloader by typing: Code: adb reboot bootloader Once you're in bootloader/fastboot mode, flash ClockworkMod recovery with this command: Windows: Code: fastboot flash recovery A2109_CWMrecovery-184.108.40.206a.img Linux: Code: fastboot -i 0x17ef flash recovery A2109_CWMrecovery-220.127.116.11a.img If it worked you should see something like this: Code: sending 'recovery' (6326KB)... OKAY [ 1.096s] writing 'recovery'... OKAY [ 0.448s] finished. total time: 1.545s Now you need to reboot into recovery. At your command prompt (terminal), type: For Windows: Code: fastboot reboot For Linux: Code: fastboot -i 0x17ef reboot Immediately start tapping Volume Up until the tablet's screen says "Booting Android Recovery". If you didn't press Volume Up quickly enough, it will boot into Android and overwrite CWM recovery, so you'll have to go back to fastboot and reflash. If you did it right, CWM recovery should start. In CWM recovery, you use Volume Up and Volume Down to move the highlight up and down, and the Power button to select options. If you need to root: Select 'install zip from sdcard' Then select 'choose zip from sdcard' or 'choose zip from external sdcard' depending on where you placed the Superuser zip file. Now navigate to your Superuser-3.1.3-signed-arm.zip and select it Choose 'Yes Install Superuser-3.1.3-signed-arm.zip' Go back to the main menu and choose 'reboot system now' to restart android. You should now be rooted. To test it out, when the A2109 finished booting, try this at the command prompt: Code: adb shell su If you've rooted successfully, the prompt should change from a $ to a # (meaning you have root access). Type 'exit' twice at the command prompt to leave the adb shell. If you are running the stock firmware, each time you boot into Android it will overwrite ClockworkMod recovery with the stock recovery. You can prevent this by renaming the recovery-from-boot.p file in your /system folder to something else. You can do this in ES File Explorer: In ES File Explorer under Setting, choose 'Root Settings' and make sure that 'Root Explorer', 'Up to Root', and 'Mount File System' are all checked. Navigate to the /system folder Long press recovery-from-boot.p and choose Rename Rename it to something else, like recovery-from-boot.p.bak Go back to Settings -> Root Settings and uncheck 'Mount File System' to put the system partition back to read-only. After renaming the recovery-from-boot.p file, you'll have to go back into fastboot and reflash ClockworkMod recovery one more time, but now it will "stick".
