I was running CM 10.2 on my A700 and last night in the middle of use the machine hung. This doesn't happen very often but when it does I normally just reboot. This time when I rebooted I received the error:
Bootloader Version JB-653b3d3 (Unlock Mode)
Booting failed
Bootloader vJB-653b3d3(UnlockMode): Starting Fastboot USB download protocol.

I thought I would just reload the CW recovery and this would fix it but when I try:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.4-a700.img

I get

sending 'recovery' (5716 KB)...
FAILED (remote: (AccessDenied))
finished. total time: 0.033s

I can erase the recovery but can't reflash it.

I thought reflashing boot.img from the CM 10.2 zip might fix things but this failed to execute too with the same error.

fastboot getvar all gives:

(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.0
(bootloader) version-baseband: 2.0
(bootloader) version: 0.4
(bootloader) serialno: 015d123afc541011

(bootloader) partition-type:cache: ext4
(bootloader) partition-size:userdata: 0x00000006f6800000
(bootloader) partition-type:userdata: ext4

I am running everything from linux as root so permissions on the PC shouldn't be an issue.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you try
fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.4-a700.img

?

It might boot CWM (without flashing it on the tablet)

Thanks for the reply. I did try booting directly as you suggested but it just sat there doing nothing (command line hung, A700 not doing anything). I might try again tonight and leave it for a while.

fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.4-a700.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
FAILED (remote: (AccessDenied))
