Did they give you instructions for reloading the stock rom via this ZIP?

Sorry about the extreme lateness, my first year at University so I've been pretty busy and all.
But you can access recovery like most other android devices by holding power and volume down(? Up maybe? I forgot, but its one of those) while its off, and keep holding until it boots into recovery. Then I used adb to sideload the zip to the device and install it. That worked for me, I don't think there were any other steps involved, but I can't really remember very well as it was months ago. If anyone can't get it to work like that let me know with a reply and I'll try to check my email more frequently for reply notifications.

Monx, I really want to get you one of these, but I'm having issues with the cost of customs, and knowing exactly how to ship it from the USA..

Question, Monx, do you have a github with TWRP uploaded to it? I want to figure out what I was doing wrong on my attempted build of clockwork.

Congrats btw and thank you for accomplishing what I was having issues with.

Brilliant work on accessing recovery! Looking very forward to getting an update to the android OS. Excellent to see that progress is being made by the user community for our little device. The amount of resource material submitted by the community is fantastic and much needed. Keep up the good work!
