Hello, can't install CWM. Made everything as in first post (but changed filename). After reboot tried to enter recovery mode, there was text on screen entering recovery or something but device booted to system and nothing happend. Whats wrong. Here is output of instalation:

c:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb push cwr_ventana_2
.img /data/local/

I installed it. It works. Though /sdcard cannot be found and backup doesn't work. But I'm sure these will be figured out in the near future

I've got it installed just fine and even got the back up files

Gonna do a clean install and then see about dumping the images

ClockworkMod Recovery boots for me and was backing up but failed while it was backing up /data for me (I have tried twice now). It seems to backup /system just fine though, I don't know why it would fail during the /data backup. Has anyone else successfully made a backup yet?

failed to restart in recovery for me (exactly as redBaron)
Try to install CWM 3 times

OK, booting in recovery works fine, but NOT via Rom Manager !
(only by pressing and releasing vol+ button when booting)

to match the name of your file.
Thanks again for sharing, CWR seems to be running perfectly.
Also for those looking for root the exploit has been posted here.
Yes ... one has to take great care with naming files ... I did something similar and used Root Explorer to rename the cwr file correctly.

I am very excited to see this news - though i'm going to wait until there is a semi-stable, well establish path for Root. Hopefully this achievement leads to the Thinkpad Tablet getting much more attention, its a pretty badass tablet and should prove to be a pretty good performer once all the Lenovo crapware is tossed out. Glad I remained faithful and patient!
