Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon.

Unofficial ClockworkMod Recovery Released for the Nexus 10
Well that didn’t take very long, did it? The new series of Nexus devices has been released, and developers have already started getting their hands dirty coding for the new toys. As they are Google devices, their bootloaders are unlockable. And after only a couple of Fastboot commands, they are ready to be developed on. The Nexus 10 got its first big piece of development with the release of an unofficial build of ClockworkMod Recovery.
XDA Senior Member shimp208 ran the stock recovery.img through the old ClockworkMod Builder and released the results. They are the 220.127.116.11 versions and there is a touch and non-touch version available.
While there are a lot of members who would love to help test it, most Nexus 10 tablets haven’t been delivered yet. So this is a truly untested recovery. Thus, proceed at your own risk. To help reduce the risk of potential soft bricks, shimp208 has put up a warning for users who don’t intend on testing. We’ll echo that here: Don’t flash if you don’t intend to test it. Once it has been thoroughly tested, the okay will be given and users can start flashing things all they want. For those that do want to test it, you’ll have to flash it via Fastboot, as there are no alternate methods right now.
