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″.

The current version available is 22.214.171.124, which is only a few increments from the latest version available from ClockworkMod. Installation is a simple process, performed using either adb of terminal.
