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.
