Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Rooted, CWM Ported

Lenovo’s Android tablets haven’t proven to be too popular here in our forums, but there has been some development activity nonetheless. The IdeaPad version targeted at consumers has been rooted last month, and now the same has been accomplished for the ThinkPad version, which is aimed at professionals and business users. Shortly after that, forum member jcase even managed to port ClockworkMod Recovery.

The process is pretty simple, though of course everything you do is at your own risk. Rooting requires running a batch file and following the instructions given, while installing CWM is slightly more complex in that you have to type some nifty adb commands.

Feel up to the task? Go ahead to this forum thread for the root, and then install ClockwordMod Recovery. Don’t forget to backup everything – the dev says that the CWM port is still considered a ‘test build’.

But it'll be a long time...
