* changed some "cosmetic" things like a wrong buttons layout when sysbar volume control was disabled; prevent camera app from going to fullscreen when combined bar auto-hide is enabled; add menu options to enable (default) or disable gsensor orientation when HDMI cable is plugged in; fixed (thanks turl) screen off animation
* in "Misc" section of Update Me now you'll find an "Ad-Hoc enabler" zip. Flash it if you wanna connect to adhoc network but note that you'll lose WiFi Direct capabilities, WiFi AP should work anyway

* changed: kernel/modules from MOMO11 Bird 20120515 rom (you have to re-download compatibility zip to match this new kernel, link's been updated)
* removed: oc_daemon from startup, if you wanna use it you have to change permissions of file /system/etc/init.d/89virtuous_oc to 755 (remember that only performance and fantasy governors are working fine, the other can cause reboots; i suggest you fantasy, it's something like interactive/smartass)

* Works pretty much everything, it's an almost perfect daily use build.
Known bugs:
* I had to replace Cyanogen's camera app with Allwinner's because preview frame was incredibly huge and buttons couldn't be pressed.
* When you take a picture using camera the thumbnails that appears in Gallery are corrupted, but you can use an alternative (and better) app like QuickPic as workaround. You can even disable Gallery app and use MX Player as video player which works pretty fine in HW mode (you don't need any codec)
* Reboot to recovery doesn't work, it just reboots the tablet.
You can see upstream changelog here

Download link



* 2012-04-29

If you have a /system partition of 300+ MB you can flash "official" gapps from, you'll have a working Face UnLock as a bonus.


* Here you can find how to flash CWM
* To manage volume from the sysbar you can install this app
* Legacy compatibility zips include stock kernel with extra modules (like bluetooth, gamepads, ecc.). It's enabled for ad-hoc and wifi direct won't work. USB Audio and DVB-T kernel modules won't work either.
* Sanei N10 users (and other with "internal sdcard" on /dev/block/nandj device) can use this version of cwm.


* Github repository

This release is pretty good, unfortunately is still has a couple rough edges. Amongst other things, voice search does not work at all for me: it crashes as soon as you tap on the microphone icon.
I'll have a look into it and see if I'm able to fix it
The problem with voice search might have to do with that specific release of the gapps. I tried removing Voicesearch.apk and reinstalling the much older version found on the market, and it works.
2) Is it possible to get rid of Gmail etc and only install Play from the gapps pack?
You can navigate to /system/app with a filemanager in root & remounted mode (ES File Explorer does that, for instance), are remove the relative apks.

Don't know why you would want that, though, I find gapps to be the applications I use the most!
Hey Christian, would you care to explain what we will be able to do via "Update Me"? Apart from donating beer money which is well in order.

a quick note about the adhoc script i have created...
Interesting, on the 20120523 version ad-hoc networks were detected buy I couldn't connect, whereas on the previous version (20120522) they worked for me! It's nice to have a workaround, but it is important to have some form of security working with them as MAC address filtering is not always immediate to set up.

I'm trying 0524 now.
adhoc is mainly used only on smartphones, with a limited range... so if someone trys to connect to your ap you can always punch him in the face
The point of creating an ad-hoc AP is usually that of sharing a connection without having a WAP handy. This happens frequently in situations like visited offices, airports, train stations, etc, pretty crowded by network-hungry people, and where security is desirable. Moreover, since wifi is the only type of connectivity natively available on this tablet, it's actually pretty important.

I will not dispute your choice to use a different wifi driver, as the benefits in term of signal strength and speed are evident. Luckily, my phone is capable of working as non-ad-hoc AP, and that's what I'll be using the most to share its data connection. But if I want to share a wired connection between my laptop and my phone, I'm out of luck.
Did the "hide combined bar" option work for any of you guys? It doesn't for me with no applications I tried, and I would REALLY love to get rid of the bar for reading!
my msg is probably lost in the last page so I'll ask again, if anyone can help I'd appreciate it:

I downloaded CWM ( - how to install??
(obviously I still cant flash using CWM...)
Check this thread for how to install CWM:
To Welcome MOMO11 bird version Android4.0.4 ...........
11; increase wifi hotspot, fix the wifi the direct, better support for hidden ssid connection;
Anything that would improve the reception would be welcome, though I suspect the issue is with the hardware (MOMO11 bird -- the signal and the speed decrease terribly when moving away from the hotspot).
There definitely is/was a HW problem with wifi antenna positioning in the box.......see below for solution(s)...

AFAIK.....newer tablets have been fixed, but loads of ppl had to open it up and physically reposition the antenna

including moi!!
Ahhh, that is a good thing to try! Will give it a go tonight (or when I find the time), thanks!
