WARNING: this is still a beta, so expect not everything to work yet. I'll keep this post updated.

In order to ease the way of ROM releases, I compiled Clockworkmod 5.5.0.4 for the AndyPad Pro (which should also work for basic models, but is untested)
It supports all the things CWM normally supports, as this is an upstream build. Most interesting functions are:
  • Installing ROMs / updates from SD-card, without havining to open flashtool
  • Backup/restore ROMs to SD-card
  • Mount USB storage without booting the system
  • Wipe dalvik / system settings
  • Partition SD-cards
  • Edify scripted zips
The current release does not include an embedded kernel, so keep in mind that this CANNOT flash kernel images.

Installation:
  • Flash the download as usual (keep in mind this might use a different setup for partitioning, than the current ROM you're using)
  • Tablet will reboot into recovery.
Usage:
To boot into recovery without a PC connection, keep Volume Up pressed while powering on the tablet.
Navigation is done through the volume keys. Select is performed by the power key.
Keep in mind this is only possible with the 2.14 bootloader or later.

Download:
CWM 5.5.0.4 - AP

Hopefully we'll see some more .zip ROM releases now!

Fantastic.

I'm at the same point as you now.
Have you managed to get a system rom to work on it yet. I tried you ICS strip but it doesn't seam to want to boot to it.

I guess we're experiencing thesame bug: flashing a ROM doesn't affect /system. This is most likely because of recovery.fstab, but I took that straight from the unpacked stock recovery (with some extra mount points):
# mount point fstype  device
/boot  emmc  /dev/block/mtd/by-name/boot
/cache  ext3  /dev/block/mtd/by-name/cache
/data  ext3  /dev/block/mtd/by-name/userdata
/kernel  emmc  /dev/block/mtd/by-name/kernel
/recovery emmc  /dev/block/mtd/by-name/recovery
/sdcard  vfat  /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /dev/block/mmcblk0
/sd-ext  ext3  /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
/system  ext3  /dev/block/mtd/by-name/system

The problem is most likely with their partitioning or mounting. I'm building this against CWM stock, but it seems for MediaPad & such they've actually changed source.
I'll experiment further.

With CWM, this will allow us to play around with CM9 builds yes?

Yes, this allows us to flash CM9 builds from .zip
It wasn't entirely required in order to flash CM9, as you can still create the ext3 images manually.

Anyway, I've recompiled some things in the recovery and this should fix everything except the /cache partition.
Keep in mind you have to flash roms compatible with boot.img, or flash your own boot.img

Okay. So now it is booting into CWM if i hold Vol+ and into your 'Strip 1.1' ROM if i don't.

This is getting better by the minute.

That is most likely because you're not using the newer bootloader and parameter file. It requires an extra line in there.
Here it boots into recovery each time without a problem, Volume Up + power.
