    I had Eclipse 2.1 on there, then I install eclipse 3.1.

    Had some odd issues of it shutting down so I wanted to do a restore from CWM.

    But CWM recovery is not not there now, I get the little droid with the red !

    So I tried pushing it on there with Google nexus tool kit....failed.

    Tried push TWRP...failed.

    Tried pushing using fastboot...failed.

    Any thoughts what to try. I have stock 4.12 installed now and want to put CWM back on so I can do a restore.

    Thanks

    The device is unlocked correct?

    What happens when you try to push it through fastboot via the fastboot flash recovery recovery.img command?

    Make sure you specify the full path to the recovery image

    [HIGH]fastboot flash recovery "(Drive Letter):\Path\To\Recovery.img"[/HIGH]

    Just reinstall a factory image and re-root then. I'd suggest doing both with wugs

    You can try the "fastboot erase recovery" first, then "fastboot flash recovery clockwork.img". Then "fastboot boot clockwork.img"

    It worked when I had problems in the past.
