    CURRENTLY NO BUILD ATM!

    How to flash above builds:
    Copy the cwrecovery.img or recovery.img to sdcard or sdcard2 and run flash_image recovery /sdcard/cwrecovery.img or /sdcard2/cwrecovery.img
    Note: for build 2nd and 3rd, the name is recovery.img


    I don't have one myself, I worked on a augen gentouch and didn't have one either while doing all this :p

    I know its been rooted, I am wondering if anyone wouldn't mind helping me out by running a few commands, so I can cook up a custom recovery for you all (clockwork ofc) :)

    After that, I'll see if I consider porting 2.2 depends on kernel version, since source isn't available...

    Either in ADB shell after doing su or on a terminal on the tablet after running su command...
    type in cat /proc/mtd and you can post that here or pm it.
    Code:
    # cat /proc/mtd
    dev:    size   erasesize  name
    mtd0: 00040000 00020000 "misc"
    mtd1: 00500000 00020000 "recovery"
    mtd2: 00280000 00020000 "boot"
    mtd3: 04380000 00020000 "system"
    mtd4: 04380000 00020000 "cache"
    mtd5: 04ac0000 00020000 "userdata"
    mtd6: 10000000 00020000 "msm_nand"
    Then whichever mtd is boot and whichever is recovery run the following
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd2(this might change) of=/sdcard/boot.img bs=4096
    dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd1(this might change) of=/sdcard/recovery.img bs=4096
    Then upload those two and send them.

    alright i need you to run this and send me the boot.img and recovery.img which would be on ur sd card :)

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd0 of=/sdcard/boot.img bs=4096
    dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd2 of=/sdcard/recovery.img bs=4096
    you can use mediafire or sendspace or any other file hosting site :p

    Also, if you can run the mount command and paste all it gives to you, it should show system, data, etc partitions...
    To do this just type it as you did with the cat command, just type mount and just paste what it gives

    Alright, so I don't have a tablet to test but this won't cause any issues to your tablet, you might get stuck in a recovery loop when we try to boot into it, just remove battery and reflash to the old recovery you sent earlier.

    Run this command after you have downloaded and put the img on the root of your sd card.
    Download cwrecovery.img from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    Code:
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/cwrecovery.img
    reboot recovery or adb reboot recovery (depends if your using adb on your pc or just using terminal on your tablet)

    I am assuming the flash_image is also an adb shell command. When I try it, it says flash_image: not found

    Do me a favor, I forgot to check for this, do the following and upload it for me.
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd1 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=4096
    Edited:
    Feel free to do that still, I'd need a dump of system for future projects. But look at my last reply for what to do to get flash_image working...

    I assume your not using adb, all you need to do is install astro or any file manager, have the flash_image in sdcard and copy it to /system/bin using the file manager.
    so mount usb, put flash_image on sdcard, unmountm, go to /sdcard, copy flash_image and paste to /system/bin then just runs the commands above :)
    Download flash_image from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    btw if anyone is using adb, just have flash_image wherever adb is on your system and do
    Code:
    adb push flash_image /system/bin
