    ==========================

    UPDATE 2015 Feb 15:
    The method below does not seem to work for the newer system updates. Instead try using kingo root.

    ==========================


    Merry Christmas, I recently got this tablet. This advice is only for NS-14T002 (as far as I know). Before you can install CWM, you will need to root your device. Please see my root guide and enabling adb guides on the Insignia Flex 8.

    Instructions:

    1. Download the zip file insignia_ns_14t002.zip
    2. Extract the contents of the zip file to the /sdcard location on your device. The files should exist in a folder like this "/sdcard/insignia_ns_14t002/"
    3. Download adb.exe for Windows (or adb for Linux) to your Computer.
    4. Open a commandline. Navigate to the location where you have adb.exe saved.
    5. (Linux users only: To enable executable permissions run: "chmod +x adb". You will be using adb instead of adb.exe)
    6. Connect your device to your computer with USB.
    7. Run the following command to install CWM. (You may need to specify a different file location to run the script, depending on how you extracted the files to your /sdcard.)
      Code (Text):
      1. adb.exe shell sh "/sdcard/insignia_ns_14t002/cwm-installer.sh"
    8. You may get a popup on the screen of your device. If so, press yes Grant permission.


    Before overwriting, the script will create a backup of your original recovery (/dev/block/mtdblock3), and it will be saved as the file name orig_recovery_backup.img.

    Enjoy

    been trying to do alllllll day... same prob as before... no device found...ugghhhhhh

    tried in win 7 and in ubuntu ...nothinnnng:thinking:

    i dont get it... from all the research it seems to be a driver prob...but it keeps saying i have the best driver for this device... even shows up in device manager...

    after several attempts...nothing.. tried it in ubuntu...followed the steps u give...nada...

    in ubuntu when i run lsusb it shows the 2207 device...cant figure out how to run the command directly to that device... :thinking:

    sorry im not to familiar with linux/ubuntu weird bcuz it worked running cydia
    :mad:


    ps : when u said "The files should exist in a folder like this "/sdcard/insignia_ns_14t002/" do u mean the to files should be in 1 folder? cuz what i did was extract them to desktop than drag the 2 files to root of sd card

    Hey MrDayAndNighT, I see you're back.

    Lucky for you, I made the script so it can run right on the device! (Since Android is Linux, I also hate needing 2 computers for 1 task.)
    :)

    You just need a program that can run scripts, like Script Manager or Root Browser. The script will run right on your device, and installs ClockWorkMod recovery. Find the script file "cwm-installer.sh" and run it.


    To follow the instructions exactly, then Yes, they should be in a folder on your sdcard named "insignia_ns_14t002". If you simply dragged the files to /sdcard location without the folder, then step 7 will instead be this:
    Code (Text):
    1.  adb.exe shell sh "/sdcard/cwm-installer.sh"

    Will this work with the NS-14T004 model?

    I have my ns-14t002 rooted. I'm trying to get cwm recovery on it but I've yet to get it. The best results I've had are " this device does not appear to be an ns-14t002" or something close to that. Any idea what I'm doing g wrong? I download the file and try to run it as a script or executable in script manager and root browser...

    $ sh /cwm-installer.sh
    Error resolving interpreter:/cwm-installer.sh: open failed: ENOENT (No such file or directory)
    Using default shell
    sh: /cwm-installer.sh: No such file or directory
    This was my latest attempt.I try it as it comes up in script manager, I try running it after pushing the su button...

    Sorry DDJR.
    The OP says
    There was a system update to this device that made CWM no longer work. I've come to realize that the best way to gain full device control is to use a device that is very well supported by developers (even if that means paying more money), examples like: Nexus and One Plus One devices.
