Default [Q] Am I stuck with honeycomb?

I've been trying for the past 20 minutes to boot into recovery and can't get it. I've tried rooting honeycomb and it keeps failing, and I tried updating from the OTA menu and it just stays at "connecting". I don't care about jellybean yet, but i'd atleat like to get ics on this thing. Any help would be appreciated. BTW, i have adb drivers installed and an sd card with stock ics update.zip from lenovo website.
