Hey folks!

I've created a working ClockworkMod recovery for Nexus 7 for use until such time as Koush releases his. This is basically the Galaxy Nexus recovery fixed up for the Nexus 7. Needs must and all that. :)

The r2 version is based on 5.8.0.2 (in case you don't like the new features in the 6 series)
The r3 version is based on ClockworkMod Touch 6.0.0.4.

Note: An official series 6 ClockworkMod recovery is now available from Koush / ROM Manager!

The recommended install method is 'adb reboot bootloader && fastboot flash recovery r3-recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.0.4-nexus7-modaco.img && fastboot boot r3-recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.0.4-nexus7-modaco.img'.

  • r3 - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid) - MD5: a3e2326843a18447bd03b73318bee5c0
Enjoy!

Hi Paul

I'm having problems with this recovery image and, to be honest, all others I've tried. It seems I can boot in once but then any subsequent boots are met with a black screen, the Google logo and the open padlock symbol. I've tried a command I've seen on two other sites, adb shell > mount system > mv recovery-from-boot.p recovery-from-boot.bak but this fires back an error ofmv: can't rename 'recovery-from-boot.p' : No such file or directory.

Any ideas?

Ah, boot into recovery and then do 'adb shell mount /system && adb shell rm /system/recovery*' and you'll be set from then on.

Sorry for annoying you, but how do you access cwm with the button combo? It varys from each dev+cwm build....

Hola ppls,

I'm unable to delete any of the backups I've taken with this, from within rom manager and file explorers and adb shell.

Getting "operation not permitted" from adb shell, and that's after a "su".

What have I screwed up?

Any ideas?

The updated r2 revision removes the 'recovery-from-boot.p' file on /system which overwrites the recovery when the system is launched. For this reason, it's recommended you launch the recovery at least once after installation.

The recommended install method is 'adb reboot bootloader && fastboot flash recovery r2-recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.0.2-nexus7-modaco.img && fastboot boot r2-recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.0.2-nexus7-modaco.img'.

Updated to r3, which is based on the latest 6.0.0.4 Galaxy Nexus release. This also resolves the 'undeletable folders' issue.

This is based on the new recovery too (or at least r3 is!)

With that in mind, I put the link to r2 (series 5 based) back in the first post...

Yea, I didnt realize that your R3 was the same format until I saw the blob folder. Ill gladly use r2 as long as file deletion works?
