For the unitiated: Cyanogenmod is a build based upon the official AOSP (Android Open Source Project). What this gives you is the latest and greatest version of Android, as long as the build is up to date. Also, because we have the source code, no more waiting for Ainol to release updates!
1. Firstly, make sure you have CWM installed! This is absolutely critical, both for backing up your current ROM, should you want to go back to it, and for installation of this ROM itself. Installation instructions can be found here: http://www.slatedroi...k-mod-recovery/
2. Grab the CM9 ROM here: http://quarx2k.ru/cm...-novo7(aurora)/
and the Gapps package here: http://goo.im/gapps/...0429-signed.zip
Copy these two files to the root folder of your Aurora's internal SD-Card.
3. (Optional, but recommended) Backup your current ROM. This is so that you can go back to it. To do this, reboot into recovery by HOLDING "Back and Power" together, until you see this:
cwm5.png 18.19KB 378 downloads
Scroll down to "Backup and Restore", and choose "Backup to internal SD-Card"
4. Once done, select "Install zip from SD-card". Install the CM9 zip file, then the gapps package.
5. Select wipe data/factory reset
6. Reboot and you're done! Add your Google account as usual and enjoy CM9!
Aurora V3 users, our very own tripledes has created a script for your version!
Well finally got it working...:-)
I have created a little script which copies the needed files for aurora v3. Just tested it on my tablet:
* Enter cwm recovery
* flash Quarx's CM9 nightly
* extract fix_cm9_aurora_v3.tar.gz
* cd fix_cm9
* connect aurora to your PC
* (sudo) ./fix_cm9.sh
It works on Linux but shouldn't be hard to make it work on Windows.
CURRENT KNOWN ISSUES:
- Superuser error
- Clock only refreshes when you change orientation
- Using extended power menu to boot into CWM doesn't work. Use the two button combination (back+power)
