    Default Nexus 10 Stuck at X - CWM exits in a 30 seconds or so

    Hey,
    I just got a nexus 10, Version: JVP15P.
    I installed CWM recovery on it.

    I was able to boot succesfully twice, but after than I got a notification of system update. I tried to install it and it failed, after that I am unable to boot past the X! In the 30 seconds I have after booting into CWM recovery mode, I tried clearing my cache, clearing data/factory reset and booting after that, but it did not work. I had taken a back up as soon as I had installed the CWM recovery. Now if I try to restore it, CWM complains MD5 mismatch.

    I have run out of options. Could anyone please, let me know how I can just return to factory settings/ or how I can make it boot properly? I am kinda noob, just started looking into the rooting stuff yesterday. So pardon me if I act like one.

    Awaiting a response.
    Cheers,

    I was able to solve the problem with the help of a few people.
    I am posting here, what my solution was, and what I learned in the process.

    1. My JB version is JVP15P, is it ok to flash JOP40C stock recovery image?
    ans: yes
    2. Does TWRP work perfectly with nexus 10?
    ans: Atleast in my case it did, I was able to root my device, and was also able to take backups.
    3. a. CWM complains E: Can't mound /sdcard !
    b. CWM Keeps restarting within 30 secs or so !
    c. My device is stuck in bootloop !
    ans: First, try to wipe your cache, and userdata and reboot. If it does not solve it, then flash stock factory image for your device and flash TWRP recovery image.
    4. CWM complains E: can't mount /cache/*
    ans: Wipe your cache, userdata and reboot.

    DO NOT USE CWM WITH NEXUS 10. USE TWRP INSTEAD.

    Cheers,

    There is a new version of cwm 6.0.2.1 that works great, just Google search for the image file and flash in fastboot
