You're very welcome

Well, actually, there should be no problem flashing this recovery, it's just that it could break the OTA process (and that I haven't tested it myself yet)

So next step after testing is to find a way to make this menu readable. I mean, I almost need a magnifying glass to read it

It isn't really an issue, maybe to correct the dafult push backup folder to internal sdcard clockworkmod instead of root folder (mnt...). I suppose that until seriously modded ROM's will appear it's best to mantain non flashed anyway for the OTA capability IMHO. Anyway, very nice job, put a paypal to receive some beers from us.

I still cannot install zips (SuperSU / gapps) from recovery, though recovery.img was flashed without any error. Am I missing anything?

Are you sure you are in the custom recovery? The Lenovo one look similar but doesn't have the clockwork mod logo in the background. It lets you install zip...as long as they are signed by Lenovo.

You are right, after re-flashing your recovery I was able to install SuperSU.zip, but still couldn't find it in the device.
Just to share further-
1. Titanium backup still fails to get root access
2. One root checker application says my device is rooted, but 'rescue root checker' says it is not

Good suggestions. I'll take a look.

Now that I know what it takes to build a recovery, I'll think twice before starting a project of a really modded ROM

I 've had the same behavior with the oldest ROM. This is why I provided a custom ROM with busybox installed even if I knew most people wouldn't need it. It was just impossible to install it afterwards. It might then be version related. Which version are you running?
