clockworkmod and installing new images
hoping your tolerance for newbs to the K1 world hasn't been exhausted yet. I am so much more familiar with doing this on my HP Touchpad side.
I am currently running on my dad's K1:
Build date Thu Aug 9 15:13:28 EDT 2012
Build # cm_k1-userdebug 4.0.4 IMM76L eng.administrator.20120809.151251 test-keys
I haven't had any luck using ADB from the computer, but I can NVFLASH and I can get into recovery via Rom Manager.
I downloaded CWM_K1_ICS_AOSP_Rooted_R2.zip with the intent of flashing it, but it does not show up as a flashable rom from recovery. It is in the exact same directory as the cm-9-20120809-UNOFFICIAL-k1.zip file which does show up so it isn't a matter of being in the wrong directory anything like that.
I'm not sure why the file is not showing up.
When I go to Rom Manager to "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" - I get prompted with "Confirm Phone Model" and Asus:Transformer is listed. I thought this build already had CMW installed so not quite sure why the prompt. Do I want to confirm the model # even though it is wrong? I'm not really sure what steps to take here.
Another option is "Check for Rom Updates" which shows 9-20120809-UNOFFICIAL-k1" as my current rom. Selecting this results in a dialogue box - Flash ClockworkMod Recovery You must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed before continuing install the recovery through ROM Manager first. Cancel/Install options are listed and I've been just hitting cancel. Do I want to Install? I've been hesitant because I thought CWM was already installed based on being able to boot into recovery.
When I boot to recovery via Rom Manager (ADB won't recognize the tablet still from PC), I see CWM - based Recovery v126.96.36.199 - which again confuses me as to why Rom Manager would tell me I need CWM installed before it can flash roms since this once again suggests to me that I was right initially and that CWM is installed already (though that begs the question - why doesn't Rom Manager recognize CWM as already being installed?).
So in a nutshell - any ideas what I need to do or am doing wrong to install the R2 release non-destructively? I'd prefer to get it working through CWM, but if I download the NVFLASH version and do it from AXP mode and the PC - will that be non-destructive or does it perform a tablet wipe?
thanks again for assistance.
UPDATED INFO - figured part of the problem...
So I downloaded the R2 image and it went to my dad's Download directory - didn't realize that he has 2 directories with same name - one being internal and other being external. When I moved the download from the internal default download directory to the external one with the same name to comply with "1. Download one of the CWM_K1_*.zip versions and move to external sdcard" - recovery CWM was able to see the zip file now and let me flash the CWM_K1_ICS_AOSP_Rooted_R2.zip.
Seems to have flashed fine - but question (lol don't answers always result in more questions) - is after flashing I'm not sure if this is a downgrade or upgrade. I see the Build # is now K1-userdebug.4.0.4.IMM76L.eng.administrator.20120731. 061506 test-keys which is earlier than the 9-20120809-UNOFFICIAL-k1. I also noticed it went back to the old logo on bootup instead of the Android good/bad robot graphics.
