New package won't say "entering download mode" it will say "A500 in APX mode"

Mate, I couldn't get it going either. You need to go to APX mode manually... I used an LED I had lying around, the leg was perfect to hit the reset button....

If recovery verification has failed just delete the recovery from boot file in the system partition after rooting or use ICS Root which does it for you (on full zip; doesn't matter on lite zip)

Then flash the patched bootloader & CWM package
