Re: Ice Cream Sandwich for Ideapad K1

pnrcomps,

 

Working on that as I noted earlier.    I could have held up until that was available for everyone, but that would have taken another couple of days and everyone seemed really focused on getting the release.  

 

I'm pulling this back for now until we have the Honeycomb file available so customers can easily swap back.

 

Thanks

 

Mark

did anyone upload the ICS image? I could use that. By the time they get something resolved we could have it rooted etc. I wish they had just put a big caution sticker on the post instead of taking it down,

All,

 

I'll put it back, but please read the messages above...

 

There is a wide variety of experience and expectation levels here and now based on some of the last few messages, I'd like to ensure that the community has a proven proceedure to get the framework and app store loaded before making this available again.  I want this to be as positive an experience as we can make it.

 

I'd also like to make the Honeycomb image available for download so that those that want to return to it can do so easily.

 

Thanks

 

Mark

So it took over a month to release this without google play. I thought this was the reason for the delay so that was bs. Guess i get to spend the night tring to root this with ics. Please release the source code and the bootloader key so development can take place. Or at leat release a rom with root access so we can add system apps.

Ok, maybe I am just too dumb to see it but where is the link to download ICS at at?

 

The original message on page 103 still has the removed link message...

As some people have already noticed, there's much more to the Play Store than just the APK - I believe the following steps should be used to sideload the Play Store and other Google Apps (disclaimer: I don't own a K1 so haven't been able to test this):

 

1. Download http://cmw.22aaf3.com/gapps/gapps-ics-20120317-signed.zip

2. Copy the file to an sd card, and rename it to update.zip

3. Power off the K1 and insert the SD card.

4. Boot up into recovery mode (press and release power, then hold volume up, I think)

5. The tablet will boot into recovery mode - it should detect the update.zip and whilst it is installing, show a progress bar.

6. When the installation finishes, a green tick will be shown and the device will power off.

7. Remove the SD card and power on.

 

If anyone could try these and report on whether this procedure works (or any refinements to these instructions) I'd be really grateful. If you have problems with these instructions, please post back which steps you managed to do, and a description of the problem that occurred.
