ClockworkMod Released for Galaxy Note 10.1
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is moving right along. Just a few days ago, we gave the Note 10.1 its own forum space and the newest Samsung tablet has also been rooted. The only thing left was getting a custom recovery so users could start flashing the ROMs and kernels that the devs pump out. Now, they have that too.
XDA Senior Member zedomax, who’s also responsible for releasing the root tutorial, has brought an unofficial ClockworkMod Recovery Touch 220.127.116.11 for people to use until an official version can be brought to ROM manager. For installation, users simply need to flash it via Odin or Heimdall. Zedomax has also been kind enough to include the stock recovery, which users can flash to if they need to or just want to get an OTA update.
So far, reports are that the recovery works just fine. The only issue reported is that the touch is a little off when scrolling. Therefore, it is recommended to use the volume keys for scrolling for the time being to avoid accidental menu selections. Otherwise, it works as it should. Now users can flash whatever they need to and, more importantly, make those ever useful Nandroid backups.
