Is recovery.img in /sdcard? You'd have to put it there first.

Yes it is located there.



Attempted it again and got it to work, i think.



Restarted to recovery, shows original.

Attempted again from in windows.


Does the of= folder have to be specific?


Attempted using Flashify and the select recovery image CHOOSE A FILE- freezes.

After some reading, the of=/dev/block/mtd/by-name/recovery is my problem is I do not have mtd/by-name/recovery. How would I go about locating it?

Cause like, Ive googled it. And so far nothing is working. I've ran different commands and none of them list the recovery partition and one command that list a lot of mount points, it doesnt label them.

I don't want to discourage you from learning, but you're very wrong. HP didn't stick to a particular SoC between models. I compiled this for the 2800, which happens to also work for the 4600 because they both have RockChip RK3066 SoCs. Here is a breakdown of my knowledge of the SoCs used:

Slate 7 1800 - Intel Atom
Slate 7 2800/4600 - RockChip RK3066
Slate 7 Extreme - Nvidia Tegra 4

Each of these has different kernels and different storage systems. I compiled a recovery for the 2800/4600 in this thread and the extreme in another thread with a lot of help from owners with that model. I also own a different tablet with a tegra so I kinda had an idea of how things were laid out.

I have not attempted one for the 1800 and don't plan on it because I don't have time or any knowledge of the SoC. If you would like a custom recovery for your model you may have to build it yourself. Nobody created one for the model I own, so I took charge, spent hours learning, and successfully did it. I never got any help trying to port CyanogenMod and lost interest, so I stopped developing for this tablet - and got rid of it.

Hope this clarifies why this won't work for you.

As far as how to find your recovery partition, look in /dev/block. You may or may not have a mtd folder. It might be an emmc folder or something else. The partitions may or may not be labeled with easy to read names. I would look at other tablets with atom processors and see what the partition layouts typically look like to get an idea.
