It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis.

Unofficial ClockworkMod Recovery Ported to Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 7″
A few weeks ago, we reported on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7″ receiving an unlocked bootloader, as posted by XDA Senior Member MrHyde03. As a logical continuation from this, MrHyde03 has now also ported ClockworkMod Recovery to the Galaxy Tab 2 7″.

NOTE: This CWM was ported from VZW SGS3
