All,

 

As outlined yesterday, I'm making this available through the forum, and our team will work to get this on the support site in a more polished format soon.

 

Please read the disclaimers in the KB article above carefully, and I suggest you download and go through the PDF (attached to the article - look for the paperclip toward the bottom)   to get a sense of the instructions before grabbing the code and forging ahead.  This image will require significant customization.

 

We've heard a few tweaks we could add to clarify recovery mode vs APX mode, and some minor tweaks to the batch files to make the messages a bit easier to see during the install and so we'll tweak it a bit more over the next couple of days.

 

This release is not supported by our contact centers, so I've added that disclaimer.   If you have trouble, post up here.

Someone asked about warranty - I think if you have a clear hardware problem, I would expect that to still be covered.

 

As noted, we are working to make the source available and will update with links to it as soon as that package is online.

 

EDIT (Pulled this for now, because of inability to easily load google app store)

EDIT (Put the link back since those that had it were sharing it potentially without the advisories and instructions, and added clarifying statements here)

 

Thanks!

 

Mark

Mark,

 

Thank you.  Is there a way to backup your current ROM before flashing that you can then go back to if need (or want) to?

Huzzah! Registered just to say thanks. It works great! Because there's almost no apps installed, this thing boots in about five seconds, and it's smooth and responsive. And the camera works!

 

Installation is the same as Khanning's ICS. Step 1: Install  APX. Step 2: Turn on tablet with both volume buttons pressed. Step 3: Double click correct .bat file.

 

Once I can figure out how to get Google Play installed, my tablet will look and feel great again!

 

Also, exclamation marks are for happy people!
