i've tried to enter recovery mode, but i don't think i can as im not on a custom kernel. please correct me if im wrong.
and should the latest cyanogenmod suffice? or would you recommend a specific build?
You don't need a custom kernal.
This is from an email from Google regarding my nexus 7, it should be the same:
Hold the*Power Button*until the device powers down completely.Press and hold*Power Button*and*Volume Downsimultaneously.Once at the Android bootloader screen, pressVolume down*until you see the option*Recovery mode.Press*Power*button to restart into*Recovery mode. You should see an image of an Android with a red exclamation point.While holding down the*Power button, pressVolume Up.Use the Volume keys to scroll down to*wipe cache partition*and press*Power*Button*to select it. The device should clear the cache instantly.*Select and press the*Power Button*on*Reboot System Now, then see if the issue is resolved.
I used the CyanogenMod installer and then I switched to the nightly builds after a nandroid backup.
