Have you use this guide : Ubuntu 11.10 and ADB and fastboot
and try this : [GUIDE] - Updated 30Jan - Unlock and Root a Nexus7 3G “Nakasig- Tilapia”

Waiting for device should only take a few seconds. You need to get the correct fastboot drivers and be booted into fastboot. Use the command "fastboot devices" to verify if it can see the device.

How do i update my recovery?
I used a nexus 7 toolkit by Mark skippen and installed cwm 6.0.1.9. i think this is a grouper cwm as I am unable to install 4.2.2 for tilapia using this. it is giving me an assert failure. Now that my bootloader is unlocked, should i still have to follow all the steps in OP? Or can I flash any file to get a tilapia recovery?
thanks

Wait...he still is installing grouper recovery? That should never have been happening in the first place. No wonder people are so down on tool kits. I hope he likes getting bug reports.

Flash recovery that is made for your device (the one is this thread will work fine.)

Edit: Did you uninstall any system apps?(Currents, Books, etc?) That will give you an assert failure even with tilapia recovery.

I took a TWRP backup of my existing Nexus 7 3G (latest available official TWRP from Goo Manager on both devices) and restored it to the new one Google sent as a warranty replacement. It booted up and had all the apps, but was in a weird state where the home button didn't work and the quick settings didn't work from the upper right corner - which usually is the state that results from improperly skipping setup.

More confoundingly, all my apps were there but the app data had failed to restore properly. It remembered basics such as wi-fi settings, but all app data seemed to have been lost in translation.

Any idea why this would have happened?

I flashed both tabs to the latest CWM from ROM Manager and tried again. After hours of slow data transfer from one tab to the other, I finally restored the backup and it runs perfectly. Is there something wrong with TWRP?

I used compression and the data backup was split over 3 files due to its size.

Does anyone have a flashable zip of the 6.0.2.3 CWM Touch for TIlapia? Can't seem to see it in the thread

Greets, I am a rookie N7-3G user (yes, tilapia) and immediately flashed CM10.1 last week

I flashed recovery-CWM-tilapia-regular.img at first ... but the step "mv system/recovery-from-boot.p system/recovery-from-boot.bak" did not work for me as the file system/recovery-from-boot.p does not exist (checked again right now).

CM10.1 installed, works fine, I am on the nightly from 0525 now.

But when I use the CyanogenMod-Updater it does not flash the updates correctly ... it says "untrusted Package".

"E:failed to verify whole-file signature" etc.

The recovery is "CWM-based Recovery v6.0.2.1". I retried this several times already to avoid corrupt downloads and make sure that it pulls the latest nightly. Does anyone have a hint for me? Do I miss something?

Thanks, Stefan

UPDATE: solved by flashing/using openrecovery-twrp-2.5.0.0-tilapia.img ... sorry for the noise, but maybe this posting helps someone else
