ClockworkMod Recovery for the Transformer TF101


NEW: Repack of Koush's touch clockworkmod recovery v5.8.1.8 to address the reboot to recovery issue.

This recovery is not mine and I take no credit for it. I only made a small change to the official recovery found here
and repacked it into a flashable zip.


Here is a diff of the hacky but working fix.

Even though these recoveries have been tested by me, I won't be responsible for any loss of data or any damages done by using it.

IF YOU ARE NEW HERE PLEASE READ THE NEXT LINE VERY CAREFULLY!

See here if you are having trouble with a recovery loop from another version of recovery...

Did you get that? Just in case please read it again before posting about not seeing recovery being updated!

Installation Instructions

Method 1 Flashing through CWM

Quote:

Download the recovery zip file

Place the recovery zip on the sdcard where clockworkmod can read it.

Reboot into recovery using "adb reboot recovery" or "hold volume down and power for 3 seconds, let go of power only, then press volume up when prompted on screen"

In recovery, select flash zip from sdcard and select the recovery zip you downloaded

Once it has flashed the zip file, be sure to reboot your transformer so it complete the flashing process.

Great work mate
However it would be great to install the updates also from /sdcard and not only from /Removable/MicroSD...I will give a look to that

Is there a reason that /BOOT is not backed up using Backup/Restore option in CWM. It would make switching ROMS & Kernels much easier. I asked this question in the original CWM thread, but never got an aswer

It's not currently backed up by CWM because the transformer has no /boot partition. There is however another way to back this data up so you will see this in a future update.

It does skip internal media unless you put a file called eraseData into the clockworkmod folder on your MicroSD card.

The ability to Install updated from the internal sdcard will be in the next version.
