    From xboxexpert:

    DO NOT FLASH THE 32GB UK Sero 7 Pro's with recovery!


    Feel free to donate or click the little Thank You button if I helped you achieve a better device :)


    This first post is just a DEV post. If you wish to flash recovery and have a working system you should use Post 2...unless of course you know what your doing already


    Skip to Post 2 if you wish to use the all-in-one root / recovery package I created...if you just want to update your CWM Recovery you can do so with the recovery image below.


    Skip to Post 3 if you want XE-Sero7 ROM v².², my custom debloated/deodexed rom with some serious cleaning done and massive additional tweaks.


    US VERSION
    CWM Touch works on both internal and external sdcard cards. If you have made backups with the previous CWM Recovery they will not be seen with this version unless you move them from /data/media/clockworkmod/ to /sdcard/clockworkmod with Root Explorer


    Once more! /sdcard/0 is the default device structure so when you backup to internal sd you backup to /data/media/clockworkmod instead of /sdcard/0/clockworkmod You will not be able to see your backups but they are there. Again, You can use root explorer to browse for them.


    To flash;
    adb push ./cwm_touch_recovery.img /sdcard/
    adb shell su -c "dd if=/sdcard/cwm_touch_recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5"
    adb reboot recovery


    To go back to stock;
    adb push ./stock_recovery.img /sdcard/
    adb shell su -c "dd if=/sdcard/stock_recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5"
    adb reboot recovery


    For full Root Package see post two, below.


    If you wish to know whats changed in the recovery.fstab of CWM;
    Code:
    # mount point    fstype        device
    
    
    /recovery       emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/SOS
    /boot           emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/LNX
    /system         ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/APP
    /cache          ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/CAC
    /misc           emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/MSC
    /staging        emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/USP
    /modem          ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/MDM
    /metadata       emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/MDA
    /data           ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/UDA    length=-32768
    /sdcard         datamedia       /dev/null
    /external_sd    vfat            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.0/by-num/p1



    UK 32GB VERSION
    Most importantly the UK Version's blocks and partitions are different! Mainly the boot/kernel block is now located on mmcblk0p6! Anyone who ran the root script on a UK Version probably flashed mmcblk0p2 with the boot.img potentially bricking the device. This is fixable by running fastboot and flashing the attached files in this post


    fastboot flash boot stock_uk32_boot.img
    fastboot flash recovery stock_uk32_recovery.img


    Code:
    # mount point    fstype        device
    
    
    /recovery       emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/SOS
    /boot           emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/LNX
    /system         ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/APP
    /cache          ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/CAC
    /misc           emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/MSC
    /staging        emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/USP
    /modem          ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/MDM
    /metadata       emmc            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/MDA
    /data           ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/UDA    length=-32768
    /sdcard         vfat            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.0/by-num/p1
    /thirdparty     ext4            /dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/THD
