So, call me newbtarded, but I'm kinda wondering where to start... I'm thinking that Clockwork Recovery is a windows app that will install the bootimg above onto my GT78 when it's connected and detected recovery mode (kinda like what I had to do for the previous Augen update)-- is that right? If so, where do I get the Clockwork Recovery app-- the clockwork site doesn't have a download section... Better yet-- anybody feel like writing up a little step by step for newbs like me? Please? I'll promise to never ever fart again or something.

Thanks for this Linkcracker!So the steps are (for the aging programming manager newbie or newbietard (that's a good one, crazy kids :)) )1. Download and apply the latest patch (??????-it was removed from the download page before I got a copy of it)2. re-install Clockwork (and all its requirements, root, etc.)3. Copy this zip to the SDCard4. Boot into Clockwork (holding down the BACK button while powering up the device)5. flash this zip file (the exact option/wording escapes me)6. power up7. Enjoy the new features!Is that right? Sorry, I'm still learning the terminology.
