Default [RECOVERY][UNOFFICIAL] CWM Recovery for Nvidia Shield Tablet

I am not responsible for anything that happens while installing this recovery



Installation:

Download the attached recovery.img. You must have your bootloader unlocked before following this guide please refer HERE . You do not have to root your device to complete this installation.

To permanently flash to recovery partition

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
To test the recovery image use

Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
To install SuperSu/Root your device use the flashable zip from Chainfire's thread. No direct links let's give him credits
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

Current issues:
It appears to be rotated 180 degrees the wrong way. It's rotated that way due to the framebuffer. Don't worry it does not effect the performance in any way.

Source:

device https://github.com/C457/android_device_nvidia_wx_na_wf

kernel https://github.com/C457/android_kernel_nvidia_ardbeg

If you want to build the recovery to fix the 180 degree rotated issue you will need one patch from google

Thanks

Huge thanks to @Keithn for testing all my bad images

The portables drivers work for the tablet? The instructions to unlock the bootloader are for the shield portable.

Most likely yes and it wouldn't hurt to try. Let me know how it goes. All feed back is appreciated.

The bootloader unlocking part is the same on all devices that allow unlocking the bootloader without some special key you have to request.

Yup just unlocked. I knew the command worked. I was worried about the drivers.

Fastboot drivers are pretty much all the same from my expirence. Sometimes if I'm looking for a driver for fastboot in my list I'll just use one for whatever I see first and Ive never had an issue.

Uploaded new recovery.img it's using normal layout as nvidia kernel makes it go that direction I decided to just swap volume up and down keys.
