Is anyone running the latest Nexus 7 3G ("tilapia") nightly and can tell me whether the wifi tethering function is enabled and working? Thanks for checking!

In case someone has trouble installing Mint on an EFI-based system, like a MacBook.
Apparently, installing Linux Mint 14 MATE x64 on an old Apple MacBook (2007) from a Live DVD/USB succeeds only after doing the following:
- Using GParted, create a msdos partition table, wiping the whole drive (creating a GPT table will cause boot-repair to fail later on).
- Install Mint as usual and use the whole drive. This will automatically create three partitions: /dev/sda1 (FAT32, boot), /dev/sda2 (ext4, your system) and /dev/sda3 (linux-swap).
- the installation will fail at the very end when trying to install GRUB, but this doesn't matter. Don't reboot just yet.
- Open a terminal and 'sudo apt-add-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install boot-repair && boot-repair'.
- In boot-repair, start repairing using the recommended settings (implies "use seperate EFI partition on /dev/sda1") and follow the procedure given by the tool. This involves running a couple of shell commands.
- If everything went right, boot-repair will report success and you can finally reboot.

Took me half the day to figure this out.

I'm running CWM 6.0.1.9 on a Nexus 7 3G ("tilapia") and NAND backups will always be stored at /mnt/shell/emulated/clockworkmod - so far, so good. But how do you transfer those files to a PC? The Nexus 7 only supports MTP or PTP, no MSC. With these modes, the clockworkmod directory doesn't show up, of course.
FunkyFresh's "Samba Filesharing" doesn't work anymore on JB 4.2.1 (also tried the patch app, which also doesn't work) and ES FTP doesn't let me access system directories, i.e. /mnt/shell.

I'm aware of ADB pull, but I don't want to install the Android SDK everywhere I go. Also, I'm running Linux, which doesn't support MTP out of the box (and if it does work, it's usually dog-slow, not even 300kb/s).

How do you transfer your CWM backups to a PC?
