Default [RECOVERY][4.4][NEXUS 7 2012 WiFi]Stock KitKat recovery - flashable zip

Just in case anyone needs it - here's a flashable zip with stock Nexus 7 2012 WiFi KitKat recovery, straight from the factory image.

Instructions: just install the zip using your custom recovery.

You do this on your own responsibility, I am in no way responsible for anything that happens to your device.

Does this flash the boot.img and recovery as well? Or only system?
mkdir android ; cd android ; repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest ; repo sync ; make

When I flash the zip in cwm, it says it was successful. Then when I reboot and go back into recovery, its still cwm. What am I doing wrong?

To be able to receive and install OTA, if for some reason you don't want to flash the factory image with "-w" removed.
