How To Root Lenovo 10 HD+b8080

[ROOT/RECOVERY] Root and CWM for the Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ (b8080-h)

I’d appreciate help porting CWM and Cyanogenmod! Please post, fork, request merges etc…

I’ve managed to compile CWM for the Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+

My repository is here: https://github.com/zyrill/android_device_lenovo_b8080h

And the CWM recovery image is attached. Use towelroot by geohot to root your tablet.

Before attempting to flash, you should:

make sure you know what you’re doing!

double check that you’re flashing the right partition!

If you flash the wrong partition, you’ll brick your tablet!

You can check your partition layout with

Code:

ls -al /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/

Once rooted, you can flash the image as follows:

Code:

adb push recovery.img /storage/sdcard0/recovery.img

adb shell

dd if=/storage/sdcard0/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p21

Enjoy!

Changelog:

v 0.1: Initial version. Known issue: can’t yet mount /sdcard and external cards
v 0.2: Backup is operative! Known issues: no option to backup to external storage, no option to skip backing up of external storage, date is not set correctly
