Damn...recovered from brick 1a, got aokp running and all is good (tried to flash touch cwm which resulted in cwm loop). BUT...when I try to reboot to recovery from power menu, rom manager, or quick boot app, the tablet just does a normal reboot.

Any ideas how to boot back to cwm from the ROM directly?

So, I've made some progress with my tablet.


I was able to push the AOKP blob file from fastboot. I'm now back in recovery.

I had done a factory reset prior and have no installation of AOKP on the internal SD.

Here is my problem now:

I can get into recovery. If I do an "adb devices" it lists the serial and says it's in recovery. If I do "adb get-state" the state is unknown. I can push the adb reboot recovery command...no problem.

I cannot, however, push any files to the tablet, and not sure why.

Tried using "adb push aokp_TFP_milestone5.zip /sdcard/"

and it just hangs. It doesn't actually push the file.
In CWM, mount the /system (under mounts & partitions if I remember correctly), then issue the adb push command for the rom zip to the /sdcard, unmount /system, check to see if the zip is now available to flash.

CWM is not yet compatible with the reboot into recovery options yet, unless you're using one of the 2 modded versions of CWM Recovery.

Also, to insure CWM touch recovery is property installed, I'd install via fast boot.

See post #279 of this thread for my adb files. Unzip them to a folder on your pc. Boot into CWM Recovery, connect Prime to PC via USB cable, issue all commands from the adb folder.

Open command prompt in adb folder by Shift + right click -> open command prompt here.

Check adb connection by typing: adb devices
If it sees your device, issue the commands in this thread's OP to solve issue.

Default Thank you so freakin much

Been running stock rooted image for awhile without unlocking the bootloader. Finally decided to unlock the bootloader which went thru with no problems and loaded the Team EOS rom, again went thru with no problems. Then I went to reboot the prime using the recovery reboot option and I get repeat reboots to CWM over and over.

Option 1a fixed it....Thanks, thought I was screwed there for a second

They are both posted here in the dev section. One is the repacked one by Roach, another was just posted this week... sorry, can't post links on the mobile app.
