I grabbed this from a Singapore forum. This post was written by the guy that post ICS on N7A to youtube...

Novo7A ICS V0.13 Edit: MediaFire Download
aino_ics_v0.13.zip

Just flashed. My initial thoughts

1. UI not as smooth as 2.3.4
2. Wifi indicator seems to be missing.
3. No market.
4. 1080P and 2160P videos works well.
5. Speaker sound is louder.
6. Able to off vibration.
7. Very bad blocks appearing everytime screen blank. (due to Mali400)

Later I install market then see how lol

Edit: lol market added, doesn't work and screwed the app drawer after I try to open market. Think can go back to the good old 1.8B2^^

I think NOVO 7A is very close for stable ICS 4.0 release. I installed ICS V0.13 and it looks really very good. The only issue I see is when the orientation is changed, for some seconds, the display goes blank and comes back again. Currently, I have disabled AUTO Orientation option, so I do not see this issue anymore.

Also, I tried to install Angry Birds HD, which did not install. Fruit Ninja got installed, but refused to run. But, Reptile GP (not TEGRA VERSION) got installed and running much smoother now than on earlier versions of NOVO 7A rom. So, I think the issue is related to the games and not with ICS 4.0 rom.

Also, SKYPE is also working.

I'll install more games and update this again.

You can thank Ainol for confusing the hell out of everyone by calling both the Basic and Advanced tabs the "Novo7". The itproportal.com guys are incorrectly reporting the MIPS XBurst version as the Allwinner A10. <_< Oh well.

Anyone tried to install Android Market in Novo7A ICS V0.13 ? I followed instructions mentioned in below location, but always getting error message when trying to add google account: " Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server"

http://www.pcworld.c...indle_fire.html

Above method at least shows the Android Market app on APP drawer.

Also, able to root this rom using: 1st re-rooted through "z4root" app version 1.3.0 and re-rooted through Mr Tasselhof tool:
http://www.slatedroi...t-script-tools/

Root is working, confirmed with installing Root Explorer app.

Update on games running on Novo7A ICS V0.13:
1. Reptide GP v1.21 - Perfect
2. Shadowgun v1.0.3 - Perfect

I tried to install below games, but did not install, which were working perfectly on 2.0T version:
- NFS shift v1.0.73
- NFS Hot Pursuit v1.0.54
- Fruit Ninja v1.73 - installed but refused to run

@WAI thanks for market installation link, I'll check that. Also, I'll try more games/apps and update above list.

you just basically extract the image File within the .zip File and select the image via Livesuit and then connect your Novo 7 then install ICS
