Guest hippy dave Posted October 31, 2013 Report Share Posted October 31, 2013 (edited) Hi guys, Sorry for the delay, as promised here is the CWM recovery.img as built by hal2710 and shared in his rooted rom image (here / here). All credit to him for building it, ps. he says: Please note that because of the way the internal memory is allocated in the Hudl, the internal sdcard is not accesible from CWM. I am currently building a custom install script that should work around this.I successfully flashed this image to my Hudl using rkflashtool, the same tool used in Paul's rooting instructions. If you successfully used that rooting method and therefore have rkflashtool working, then this should work for you. I'll leave finding alternative methods to people cleverer than me :) * This is all at your own risk, any flashing mistakes should be reversible using the available images and tools but I'm not responsible if something worse happens* So, 1) Download the zipped recovery.img here Edit: thanks glossywhite: Here's a faster, fuss-free mirror (dropbox) *plus* I've included the original, stock "recovery" image... just in case some poor soul forgets to back it up https://www.dropbox.com/s/1wvjwffzvbet6yo/CWM-126.96.36.199-image-hudl-with-stock-recovery-backup-image.zip?dl=1 2) Unzip recovery.img into the same location as the files from Paul's root method (so recovery.img is in the same directory/folder as rkflashtool) 3) Open a command line to the above location, and as per Paul's instructions plug the hudl in via USB and press the reset pin while holding volume up (the device will appear to stay off) 4) Enter:./rkflashtool r 0x00010000 0x00010000 > recovery.original.img ./rkflashtool w 0x00010000 0x00010000 < recovery.img ./rkflashtool b 5) Turn it on. You know CWM, you get to it by holding Power + Volume Up when the Hudl is off (but not when it's in charging mode as it should be after you enter those commands, so you might have to boot up then power down), or a rebooter app, or using the extended power menu if you've pimped your rom. Let me know if I've forgotten anything. Credit to hal2710, Paul, and everyone behind the various softwares.
