CyanogenMod 7/ClockworkMod Recovery 5 for Slate2 / a-rival PAD NAV-PA80
Hello! I have used CyanogenMod 7/ClockworkMod Recovery 5 firmware modified by Fun_ for a-rival PAD NAV-PA80 because it is the same device as Slate2. You can find instructions here :
or files & instructions here:
- owned by firmware developer Fun_
I was following these instructions. So the sequence was:
Go to androtab.info/telechips/firmwares.
Find a-rival PAD NAV-PA80/83 capacitive
a.) Stock recovery backup tool - dump-recovery-signed.zip
b.) ClockworkMod Recovery 5 - arival80-recovery-signed.zip
c.) CyanogenMod 7 - arival80-cyanogen-signed.zip
Be sure it is for NAV-PA80/83 if you want it to use it on your Slate2 - I have used this firmware and I can confirm that it worked.
Preparation2. Entering recovery mode. To enter recovery mode hold 'volume-' button and holding 'power' button till you see Android robot - then release 'volume-' button. You are in stock recovery mode now. Use VOL- =next(down), VOL+ =prev(up), POWER=select, BACK=back)
