How to load Nexus 7 recovery mode?

How to load Google Nexus 7 recovery mode? I tried to boot into Nexus 7 stock recovery but failed. Only managed to load Nexus 7 Fastboot mode. Then it stuck at Google Logo when try to load recovery. Not a big deal because stock recovery can’t do much stuff when compare to ClockworkMod (CWM) Touch Recovery and TWRP Recovery from TeamWin Recovery Project. I managed to root Nexus and install CWM Touch Recovery with Google Nexus 7 ToolKit’s 1-click method. So how to load Nexus 7 recovery mode now?

Quick Boot (Reboot)

Download Extended Power Menu for Nexus 7

There are only Power off, Airplane mode and Silent mode in power menu on Google Nexus 7. Therefore, I use Quick Boot (Reboot) application to reboot and load into recovery. But that’s not the best way. So Extended Power Menu for Nexus 7 comes to rescue…

Download & Install ClockworkMod Recovery for Kindle Fire

TeamWin Recovery Project (TWRP) catches all the show as the first touchscreen enabled recovery for Amazon Kindle Fire. However, it does not stop developers from create ClockworkMod Recovery Touch (CWM) for Kindle Fire too. XDA Developer, Hashcode developed touchscreen supported CWM based on Koush’s ClockworkMod Recovery 5.5.0.4. As usual, CWM supports Rom Manager integration for flashing .zip files and auto rebooting. And USB mounting via recovery is supported as well. A perfect combination for CM9 ROM.

Download TWRP 2.0 for Kindle Fire

ClockworkMod Recovery is a must install tool for Android devices. I have it on Android HTC HD2 and Samsung Galaxy S II. However, ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) does not support touchscreen interface for the moment. So can’t be used on Amazon Kindle Fire with just 1 physical button ~ power button. The lack of volume rocker makes CWM impossible to use on Kindle Fire. Thanks to TeamWin. They developed Team Win Recovery Project 2.0 (or TWRP 2.0 for short) for several Android devices like HTC EVO 3D, HTC Sensation, Google Nexus S, NOOK Color, Amazon Kindle Fire. TWRP 2.0 is a custom recovery with touchscreen interface support. So it is a perfect custom recovery for Kindle Fire.
