The faithful community behind Android is amazing. This time I am highlighting our helpful friend pershoot.  He has recently built something new and exciting for the Android fan base, especially if you were at Google IO and came home with one of their limited edition Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets.  This Android 3.0 running device will soon be getting The Android 3.1 updates. In the interim pershoot pieced together a Galaxy  Tab 10.1 recovery for Clockwork Mod built by Koush.

Update (5/22; the filename has not changed. please re-download and boot/flash):
-Fix nandroid backups to exclude media during data backup, and fix cache backup.


-build koush’s CWM from CyanogenMod’s repo
-Modified the format_volume to removed directories from /data instead of erasing. (solarnz)
-recovery: Handle /data/media when TARGET_HAS_SDCARD_ON_DATA
-Modified mkyaffs2image so that it won’t include /data/media (solarnz)

Installation instructions:
It is recommended you try out the recovery before replacing your stock recovery.
fastboot boot recovery-cwm_3.1.0.1-sam-tab-10.1.img

If you are happy with it, then to replace your recovery:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-cwm_3.1.0.1-sam-tab-10.1.img

This will also work on the ‘v’ model.

Known Issues:
-UMS will not work, as of yet.

You should head over to and download his tools if you feel so compelled to flash your recovery.  If you haven’t done this process before it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has made it a simple process. Thanks to pershoot for make it even simpler. If you aren’t comfortable doing this let us know and we will make a clearer write up in the forums section.  For all the rest.

Happy flashing.
