Yes, my output matches the output indicated by others in this thread.
Yes I tried both a reboot via power cycle and reboot via ROM Manager "reboot into recover"

CODE REMOVED

Reboot via power button.

Lenovo logo shows up, hit Vol+
"Booting Recovery Kernal Image" shows up in the top corner
Tablet goes black and vibrates again(indicating a reboot)
Lenovo logo appears again.
I can repeat the above steps at this point and the same happens. if I don't, it boots normally.

CODE removed

Any help is greatly appreciated.

+1. I have the 18392QM model (A310_02_0037_0074_ROW) with storage as follows: 32Gb Internal, 32Gb Internal SD and 32Gb External SD. Using Root Explorer I see that cwr_ventana_2.img is 4.25Mb.

The sizes aren't different, 4.29megs is 4452352 bytes.

I'm running 0074 ROW on model 1838CTO.

And if someone has directions for undoing the steps so I can restore the original recovery image for now I would be grateful

Working on 32GB model 1838CTO, with firmware 075 US. It flashed with no problems on the first try. I have successfully backed up, restored, and installed an update.zip. The only problem I have encountered is that it backs up the internal sdcard contents as mentioned before.

Thanks for that. Wouldn't you simply put the original install-recovery.sh script back in place (in /etc folder) and thus allow it to boot into the original recovery? On other devices I used to rename the script to install-recovery.sh.orig (or somesuch) so I could do this.

i you did not backup your install-recovery.sh (like i did :( ), download your rom version from http://download.lenovo.com/slates/think/tablet1/ , unzip it and copy the install-recovery.sh from there to you /system directory and run it ..
