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’.

In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
