OK nvm I got it working.
Apparently I needed to specify full path to flash_image
I tossed it in system/xbin and was trying to execute it from there[email protected]
:/system/xbin # flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/cwm.img
Ah, but it was'nt having none of that.. had to toss a ./ on the front.
LOL Im use to DOS prompts.... any way..
That CWM the guy posted in that review page works but USB mounting of sdcard/flash for host PC does'nt do a damn thing.
I ended up using a generic ramdisk recovery found here:http://androtab.info/clockworkmod/rockchip/rk3188/
Seems to work, however it has a problem as well.
The one posted by the guy in the review has working ADB in recovery.
Where as the generic ramdisk version doesn't.. or at least I can't see it with the adb im running.
I don't really know enough to try and figure out what the problem is with either of those 2.
I also gave your TWRP a try.. it looks nice, has promise, but ya seems to buggy to use right now.. also ADB did'nt work under it either.
I think I'll probably use the broken USB mounting CWM.. Im thinking ADB will come in handy more in a pinch.
