Ainol Novo 8 Advanced 2.3.4 Rooted UK Rom V4.0se

No hanging around, it's time for another update :)

First up if you are using 4.1 without issues then there is nothing exciting here for you. This release is specifically for whoever cannot get the 4.1 firmware to behave on their tablet due to the updated touchscreen jitter fix causing their touchscreens to not work. This updated release has the fix from Cheeyee's patch 8d that was made before he changed it to become part of the kernel.

I have bundled the latest Flash player apk into the download as Adobe are meant to be pulling it from the store. Integrating it into the firmware never works quite right because Flash likes to spread itself around so once you have installed the firmware just use App Installer to scan your SD Card and install from there.

Because of the time between 4.0 coming out and this release making an update patch would cause more problems than solve so this is a new full release that will need to be installed from scratch. To make life easier Titanium Backup has been added so you can easily backup and restore your apps, data, passwords and such with minimal fuss.

When installed the Novo8 will show up as 'Ainol Novo8 4.0se Advanced' on the Google Play store, it may take it's time to pick up the Chainfire 3d Market Fixes if you install them. I had to Force Close, Clear Data and reset the tablet before they took hold but once done it worked fine.

Ainol Novo 8 Advanced 2.3.4 Rooted UK Rom V3.1se

After a little hiatus I'm back doing my thing for the Novo 8 :)

First up if you are using 4.0 or 4.1 this is not the release you are looking for :) This release is specifically for whoever cannot get 4.x firmwares to behave on their tablet. Hopefully my refresh of this release will not break as it's not vastly different to the original 3.0 and 3.1 mini-patch.

Because of the time between 3.0 coming out and this release making an update patch would cause more problems than solve so this is a new full release that will need to be installed from scratch. To make life easier Titanium Backup has been added so you can easily backup and restore your apps, data, passwords and such with minimal fuss.

When installed the Novo8 will show up as 'Ainol Novo8 3.1se Advanced' on the Google Play store, it may take it's time to pick up the Chainfire 3d Market Fixes if you install them. I had to Force Close and reset the tablet before they took hold but once done it worked fine.

Adobe Flash Player 11.1.111.10 @ My FTP

Flash player download added as Adobe are pulling the plug, I would integrate it into my firmware but it never works right as it likes to spread itself around the Android filesystem far too much, just copy to your SD Card and use App Installer to scan your SD Card and install it.
