I am not responsible for any damage that may or may not occur to your device.
If you use my recovery in your project link back to this thread, and give me credit in your thread for my recovery.

This is the Linux version of TWRP tethered recovery and CWM tethered recovery.
TWRP 2.8.6.0 recovery, currently tested on two tablets, venue 3830, iview -1700

screen for 1-700 is 1024x600 landscape
screen for venue 3830 800x1280 portrait

Purpose of this guide is to root intel tablets using Linux computer.

This project includes the work of 4 people perhaps more.

Below is older version, it's recommend to use version above.


Download for older version.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/c4...thered_cwm.zip

Download Linux_tethered_cwm.zip to your desktop extract set start_recovery as executable, make sure usb debugging is setup and working.

Place UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.37.zip on micro sdcard or on internal sdcard or both wont hurt anything.

open terminal in folder where you extracted files.
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
once you are in fastboot
Code:
sudo ./start_recovery
now use recovery to navigate to UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.37.zip and install it, after finished reboot to system, select no on su question.

Update thread, below are the latest adb and fastboot binary files from Google, the fastboot binary from Google is smaller then the one I compiled., as of Dec 9, Googles latest fastboot binary now supports intel devices.

http://www.mediafire.com/download/qv...b_fastboot.tar

Change log 7-31-2015

Twrp has been updated to 2.8.7.0

This version includes @social-design-concepts latest trigger (fbrl.trigger) and launcher (recovery.launcher), Also included is a script for Tesco Hudl 2 users, this device requires addition info to launch fastboot commands.

For Tesco Hudl 2 users use hudl2 script instead of trigger, or you can still manually edit trigger if you want.

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
sudo ./hudl2

This method uses 3rd trigger, if you want to use another trigger simply edit start_recovery, to reflect the trigger you want to use.

You can't flash anything from stock recovery, you need to use my cwm recovery.

Should work on both, as well as other intel tablets, this isn't just for dell tablets.

Added Google's latest adb and fastboot binaries files to first OP. I always recommend and use the latest version of these binaries myself. I had to compile my own fastboot binary cause Google didn't have one that supported intel, now they do, I recommend people use it.

This is for Linux, not windows, you type the command in terminal.

Umm the recovery saved you from bricking your tablet, had the recovery installed that mod, most likely you would be calling Dell to find out how to return the tablet, and get a quote on repair cost, as your warranty is void.
