clockwork was overwritten by the stock recovery. I would use a microsd to flash clockwork back, and try to install the vanilla again.

roebeet, did you compare the last official rom (from 01/24/11) with the one you fetched from TnT site and which has the same version number?

Yep - same location, same build number, same build date in the build.prop. It's the first thing I did when I saw it OTA.

Hello

I am very new to the Android. I have gtablet and did installed clockworkmod although it gives me a lot of problems. I want to restore factory recovery but how do that I know the solution is there but it is outdated and it is very hard for newbie like me to follow without fully explanation and few pictures.

If anyone is kind of enough please do write good instructions.

Thanks

Install an official Viewsonic update. This will erase Clockwork Recovery and install the stock recovery.

Download the most current official update from here or Viewsonic
Move .zip file to internal sdcard
Boot into clockwork recovery
wipe data/cache
install the .zip file
Reboot

Creating a modified recovery
Is there a way to add two features to the existing CW mod recovery? I'm looking to add an MD5 and DD portion.

Essentially I want to be able to make a DD img of the complete file system and then hash the file system and pipe the hash value to a text file on the SD card.

a bash/busybox shell in a recovery mod would be awesome. i am still too timid to cross compile yet.

roebeet, what gcc are you guys using? arm-eabi?

@muqali - you can use ADB shell from within recovery to get a bash prompt and do anything you can do from a terminal prompt. Re: cross compilers - we mostly use the prebuilt ones from CyanogenMod's prebuilt directory or from the Android SDK.

@ctendell - you'd have to hack on the source for the recovery app itself. It wouldn't be too complicated really, but you'll need to pull down bekit's CyanogenMod repository, I think, and get a recoveryimage build working first. I've done it with CM7beta/ClockworkMod 3 when I was working on getting that working (until I toasted my first G Tablet). If you go onto the IRC channel (see the sticky) people will give you some help getting a CyanogenMod build environment set up.

Hi all,

I installed TnT 3389, then tried to do an OTA update, expecting that it would detect it was not the latest version, then update, as it did when I first bought it.

Thing is, it did not update, it just said that I had the latest version installed????? Did I do something wrong? I installed using CW from TnT lite, and it wiped thememory card too, nothing on it except 3389.

The only OTA update I've ever seen on my gtab was when I first powered it on, which took me to 3389. I haven't seen an OTA notification since then, so I've just been downloading the VS .zip files and flashing them manually.
