PREAMBLE
I have built CWM for our Lenovo A3000-H - tested it as well, everything (apart from the bugs mentioned below) seems to work. This is not a "port", it has been compiled from source.
NOTE: I have built and tested this on my Lenovo A3000-H (16 GB version with 3G) with the a3000_prc_3gfull board/partition table. It may or may not work on others.


Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery image
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Successfully flashed this recovery to mine A3000-H 4gb 3G tablet.
I tried backing up my ROM, but it froze while "Backing up boot image". Have not tried anything else.

And you couldn't grab a log afterwards?
Try
Code:
adb pull tmp/recovery.log
and upload the log please.

If you already have ROM package (including flash tool) from one of "Azam426" threads, it's simple:

1. Just open "Flash_tool"
2. Tick "DA DL All with check sum"
3. Load "scatter-loader" file and point to "MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt".
4. Uncheck everything except for "RECOVERY"
5. Click the "RECOVERY" title and point that to "recovery.img" file downloaded from this thread.
6. Switch off the tablet, prepare the USB cable, and click "DOWNLOAD"
7. Wait a few seconds, then connect the cable to the tab.
8. In case if you get any error messages when you click "DOWNLOAD", unplug the cable then click "FIRMWARE->UPGRADE" option, wait a few seconds and reconnect the cable to the tab.

Please note, I'm not responsible if your tab got bricked, burned, exploded, loosing some or all of your data, etc.
Although flashing this recovery doesn't do any harm (on my device), but just to be safe, please do backup your important files, PIMs, emails, etc.






Keys assignment:
- Vol up = Up
- Vol down = Down
- Pwr button = Select

=> In case you're wondering how to enter recovery, just turn off your device, press and hold vol up + power button until you have this screen:
