Here is the file (I doubt any of us newbs can do anything with it anyway):
Alright, so here's how it went!
Flashing took about 9 min. 30 seconds. Wasn't getting past first lenovo boot logo. Went on ahead and flashed D's recovery.img file (the first one you uploaded) by using SP_Flash_Tool_v3.1224.01 (this was the ONLY version I could use in order to work. I think it also happens to be the latest one).
Good news! Flashed successfully and I had CWM on the tablet. I tried to run manwithpiercings's backup but kept getting an "Error: installation aborted." message. Just for kicks, I wiped user date/cache and dalvik cache several times then tried installing update from sd card using the F-firmware stock rom.
It staid it installed successfully (as it always did for me), but now after reboot it will go to the first lenovo screen, stay there for 4 seconds...THEN REBOOT! I have NEVER seen this before and in my mind might be a sign that we're on to something!
Like my theory went, I suspected the F-rom via CWM never worked because I had H-FIRMWARE on the tablet at the time. Now since we have F-Firmware, perhaps the tablet really is trying to get it to work or something.
It's still mystery to me, but it feels like we're very VERY close...
