Since the only difference between the elf and aurora is the screen, it makes sense to consolidate the forums. Especially forums for Firmware/ROMS and the like.

The specs are identical except that the Aurora has the IPS screen. With that being the only factor, ROMS can easily be made to support both and the other instructions (loading roms, loading clockwork mod, etc) are identical. Seems like we have alot of redundant posts..


Of the forums were consolidated then we could have SUB forums for ELF and Aurora, it makes MUCH more sense.

I totally, agree - it would make it *much* easier to google for hacks and firmware if this was the case. As it stands, I'm checking a few different forums, and they're *all* pigs to navigate through. It's too much of a chore, and could me much simpler!

I agree. But some of the problem is due to hacks and firmware based upon older versions. So when searching, many older posts are now incorrect or have not been updated.

I hope a final ELF/Aurora version is released soon so hacks/modded fw can be made based upon something stable.

The Elf and Aurora are NOT the same and need to stay seperate.

The Aurora now has to split in two itself due to hardware changes. Build date before and after Mar 7, 2012 approx. are now on different firmware.

I do agree that we need a mod to take on the task of moving these forums into the proper subs etc.....

... yeah, I've come to realise this now! still, it would be nice if all of the rom posts could be cleaner and easier to follow! Perhaps some of the older ROMs should be retired?

Consolidate in areas, yes, and I agree that hardware changes both in Aurora and Elf merit the need to stay in separate forums.
Retire...please no. One of the first working (well) ROM's posted was GB 2.3.4 and runs like a dream.
Novo 7 Advanced
GB 2.3.4 - feyiu 2.03.
Novo 7 Elf - 32gb SD
GB 2.3.4 - Roman Automod 2.4 - Tasselhof Root/Market - Bravia Engine - GoLauncher EX.

Novo 7 Aurora FT5XTS - 32gb SD
