And about manwithmanypiercing's CWM back-up, he sent the link to Camborg80-Trey via PM, not posted on thread !!!

Even though another user reported that it didn't seem to work via sp flash tools (unless I'm mistaken), I will still give this sp flash tool a go. In the meantime makbro, I will pm you manwithpiercings' backup and you can edit out the "sensitive" bits of his data (said email was included in it or something and ask that I delete it.

You'll also see the lack of his .tar for the system file (when you origninally asked me to use it). I just PM it to you and we'll see if it does anything! Here we go...

EDIT: I'm a total newb and can't figure out how to send files via PM, lol.

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...

manwithmanypiercing's back-up is from the new CWM format and is incomplete without the "blob" files (also made by CWM)...This is compatible with CWM 6.0.1.5...That is why you face errors while trying to restore this back-up, you can never do that without the "blob" files...You can read all about this in the words of CWM developer himself here : https://plus.google.com/103583939320...ts/L5aVZe7C9vg

I am just uploading another try at the CWM flashable .zip...Because of the bootloop now, I feel with more assurance that the device can be fixed!!!

If you could send them to me too, I'd very much like to build a working CWM Flashable Stock ROM for all the -F troubled members...Thanks

And it would be a great favor for all the -F device holders if you could upload full ROM dumps (using Gscript Lite AND MTKDroidTools) as well so that they can flash them thru SP Flash Tool...

I am asking you for help since I myself have a -H model, so basically I am trying to get the only ROM Dump (By garringm) to work for them in the SP Flash Tool blindly (implying without the device )

Have uploaded another -F attempt (CWM .zip ROM) and updated my previous post link
EDIT : This one bytes the dust too
