Re: Ideapad K1 - Which Rom do I choose?

If you can get the gapps zip onto your device some other way, then yeah. As long as you have the APX drivers installed installation should go normally. If for some reason gapps don't install you can always flash them later from Clockwork Recovery on your device.

 

If you're technically inclined you might try using adb to push the zip f ile onto your card, iirc it's something like 

 

adb push "path/to/file/on/your/computer.zip" sdcard

 

from command prompt (provided you have ADB on your path).

Thanks!  I followed your advice and was able to successfully upgrade to CM10. 

 

DId run into a problem during nvflash, where it got stuck in the "Formatting partition 12 UDA" message; after reading some other posts, pushing out the Honeycomb stock ROM image, then retrying the JB ROM, did the trick.  Maybe this should be added to the original post as an FAQ for other people that may get stuck in the same step?

Help.

I am stuck with an unusable tablet.  I installed the drivers (i am using win 8) and tried to flash several of the roms for ICS and JB.  Each time I  try, I get to formating partition 12 and it goes to a blank line with a blinking curser.  On the tablet in the upper left I have the message Entering NVFlash Recovery Mode / Nv3p Server.   All is dead after that.  What should I do to get back a working tablet?

A number of people have experienced this issue, with the nvflash install stopping when it gets to formatting partition 12.  In almost all cases, they have been able to succeed just by retrying the install several times in a row, and I have not seen any other solution to getting past this problem. Of course, this means forcing the tablet to power off (hold in the power button 8+ seconds), restarting it in APX mode, and then reconnecting it to the PC.  I have not seen a good explanation of why it stalls, or why it eventually works after retrying it, but it probably has something to do with timing, and by trying it enough times you eventually get "lucky".   So I'd suggest you just try installing the same nvflash ROM several times in a row (at least 3 or 4), and see what happens.

What has happened to the K1 threads?  Last i heard was that Krook was working on an upgade to his 10.1 but have not seen anything.  Am I looking in the wrong places?  Has everyone given up on the K1?

Dunno mate. I still use my K1, it's on CM10 and works fine. Since they EOL'd the product nobody is buying it anymore; we've pretty much fixed the issues that everyone has had with it, and so there's nothing to discuss anymore.

 

What a shame. It was a good forum.

Dock only works with AOSP JB if the tablet is in it continuously since booting up.    If the tablet is removed from the dock,  it switches to the soft keyboard and stays that way until it is rebooted.   Putting it back in the dock does not bring back the external keyboard.
