Re: Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4) Vanilla

Can you please show how to have Google Play installed? Without it, the tablet becomes useless...

Thanks again for your time.

 

I got it. Instead of 3-button power up, I just do a normal power button - power up. After that the flash_oldsbk.bat just works! On ICS now.

Re: Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4) Vanilla

@everyone

Lenovo is providing a basic non-customized, region-independent release of Android 4.03 aka Ice Cream Sandwich for customers who wish to install this OS on their IdeaPad K1 Tablet systems.

This release differs from the factory-installed Honeycomb 3.1 release and subsequent OTA (Over The Air) updates to Honeycomb 3.2, and itdoes not include Lenovo customizations such as the launcher, pre-installed Apps or an App store, nor the underlying framework.  

 

Installation of this release will erase ALL data on the system including all factory Apps as well as any customer installed applications, music, pictures, etc.

This release is generally not recommended for the casual or mainstream user who is unfamiliar with the Android OS and customizing it. The source code, which may be of additional value to the developer community, will be made available shortly. Further OTA updates are not planned for this release.

 

Based on the above, and having read through all 9 pages in the associated Lenovo "Forum" messages, I can only state that neither this release, nor either of the improved versions produced by Khanning, should not be installed UNTIL YOU READ ALL THE COMMENTS**. Recommend reading both the Lenovo Forum and the XDA Developers forums. There is a lot of information presented, much of it quite good, but more than a little that is either misleading, incomplete, or just plain wrong. In fact, as more information comes in I am waiting until I have a more complete picture of what will work best and leave me with a fully functional K-1 with ICS, PlayStore, and Google Apps. Since the K-1 with Gingerbread serves as my "on the road" device and largely is satisfactory I can afford to wait until users have worked the bugs out of the installation/flashing procedure. For those two to three days a week that I'm on the road I don't want or need to lug my laptop along.

 

Kudos to Khanning and other who've made this update possible. Kudos to contributors who continue to improve it.

Actually, what I also did - not sure if it helps or not, I used the utility USBDeview - link: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html and uninstalled all Android related usb drviers... Then I did the steps described in my previous post...

 

Give it a shot - maybe you are lucky... beyond that - no more ideas here.

Thanks for the info. It was a clean driver installation using Lenovo usbpcdriver files. 

 

Anyway I uninstall the driver and re-install the driver. Same. Stop at "Formatting partition 12 UDA please wait.. done!"

@sun4all.

 

Hi - I had the exact same issue. In my case it was due to the apx driver - you should use the ones provided here... I had older apx driver already installed from a while ago when owning a different tablet.

 

What I did: with the K1 in recovery mode connected to PC, I opened device manager on PC and removed NVidia Boot and Recovery Usb drive or something like that, turned off the K1 and restarted in recovery mode... Then PC prompted me for APX driver and I selected the location as the usbpcdriver folder Lenovo provided. Driver was installed and then the flash worked perfectly.

 

Hope this helps!

Lenovo, give us back Google Play!

Although some regions restrict the use of Google Services, it is thoroughly unfair to sacrifice the American users' accessibility to Google Play.

Some of us bought a K1 because it was claimed to be upgraded to ICS. We were not expecting a Gapps-forbidding ICS.

We should not have been doomed to be envious of the owners of ASUS Transformer or Motorola Xoom.

So, Mark, could you please convey our sounds to Lenovo to have it reconsider to distribute a Google Service integrated version of ROM?

Thanks.
