How to Flash a Custom Recovery on the Toshiba Folio 100

Now that you have rooted your Folio 100, if you intend to flash custom ROMs on your tablet, the next big step to take of course is to install a custom recovery.  One such popular custom recovery is the ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM or CWMR) and this guide below will help you install it with ease.

I.  Before You Begin

1.  Make sure that your device has at least 75% of its battery charged before you begin.

2.  This procedure is designed to work on a Windows 7 PC.  Do not try it on any other operating system.

3.  Back up any data you feel is important before you begin with the procedure.

II.  Necessary Downloads

III.  Flashing ClockworkMod Recovery on the Toshiba Folio 100

1.  Connect your device to your PC and copy the update.zip file to your device’s SD card.

2.  Turn off your device and put it into recovery mode.  To do this, press the Power button once and the Volume Up button when you see the Toshiba logo on screen.

3.  Once in recovery, press Volume Up to highlight Factory reset or system update.

4.  Press Volume Down to continue on to installing system update.

5.  Press Volume Up again to confirm system update.

6.  Your Folio 100 should now show a progress bar to show the installation process and reboot when it is done.

And we’re done!

    After step III 5 (Press Volume Up again to confirm system update) my folio remains on a black screen saying “booting recovery kernel image” and nothing happens (I’ve been waiting for a long time).
    My device is rooted but I can’t install any custom rom because of this.
    What can I do? Thank you!
