Re: [ROM][ICS]Ideapad K1 Official Release

Hello all again.

 

Not very techy but since my new phone, HTC One V, came with ICS and I LOVE it, I thought I would give this a go. (The phone performs way better than K1 at 3.2.1)

 

I have been following Mark's PDF instructions (and all others) to the letter and am not able to flash the stock unzipped file.

Either on an XP netbook or desktop Vista.  Is that the problem, you need at least Windows 7? I just get a dark screen with no activity whatsoever.

 

Is there an yway to flash ICS directly on the K1?

 

Thanks again for any help you can give me.


I have window 7 so I cannot comment on whether it works of previous versions. Do you have NVflash drivers installed?

For those having difficulty with the drivers on windows 7 and 8 keep in mind unsigned drivers will give you trouble if you donot toggle off the requirement for signed drivers on boot. A quick google search can show you how to do this and I know it's necessary especially if you are on windows 8.

Have you tried rerunning the bat file while in apx mode. I'm assuming you succeeded in installing the proper drivers.

I plan to upgrade my K1 this weekend.

I took a app backup of a few important apps I had on my K1 using "App backup and restore" app from market.

These are all apk files (around 88 of them). Will I be able to restore them directly on this new ICS rom?

I just sent my K1 in for repairs. Audio jack no longer autodetecting, and the lens cover on the back camera fell out somewhere along the way. Once I get it back, quite a few of the initial bug/problems with the ICS image will have been worked out. 

 

Looking forward to this.

An extremely short FAQ:

 

1. Does my tablet need to be rooted to install this? A: No. You can flash from any ROM. In fact, your tablet doesn't even need to be bootable.

 

2. How do I spoof my config file to get full Market compatibility? You have to modify build.prop. I don't know how to do this myself.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------

Flashing Guide

 

For those of you who haven't the slightest clue how to flash and can't be assed to read the PDF:

 

Steps (for Windows):

 

1. Install the APX drivers for the IdeaPad K1 onto your computer. They can be found in the "Bootloader Fix" thread, which is stickied.

 

2. Put your tablet in APX mode. This is done by holding both the volume keys down while you boot your tablet. When it reaches APX mode the two lights around the home button will be on and the screen will be black.

 

3. Connect your tablet to your computer with the USB cable.

 

4. Unzip the package Khanning posted and double-click "flash-windows.bat".

 

5. Wait 'till it's done; it will reboot by itself.

 

6. Done.

If any of this is wrong PLEASE tell me. Don't want to mislead people here.
