Default [ROM]DocHoppyRom NEXTBOOK 7 Premium*updated DocHoppyRom Full On Rootv2.0*2/14/2012

I was working on a ICS based hoppy rom. Unfortunately I just had a catastrophic screen failure, apparently when my laptop bag fell last night, it landed with enough force to shatter the screen on my nextbook! Oh well. it may be a while before I can work on anything to further the version I was working on.



FYI- Due to work, my time is very limited for working on the next version of Hoppy Rom. I apologize in advance. The company I work for is
setting up new engine test cells in China, and my self and 2 other people are main points of support! again Sorry for anything new taking so long!


DOCHOPPY HAS BEEN SIGHTED (Other than on a DAYZ server...Stay tuned.



Ok I have decided to pass along what I have been working on.

Warning***
This is for the Nextbook 7 premium ONLY!
Known working on Nextbook 7 premium tablets with serial numbers starting:YF1011

DocHoppy Presents!
DocHoppyRom Full On Root v2.0


and

DocHoppy Cramfs Style 3.0


Based off the official update image released by nextbook.

Major thanks to FINLESS BOB!!! GREAT HELPFUL GUY!




PRESENTING DOC HOPPY ROM

CRAMFS STYLE 3.0

AND

FULL ON ROOT v2.0

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for Bricked Tablets. This is known to work on tablet with SN starting with YF1011, and some YF1211.

First you will need to decide which version of the Rom you are going to load. The CRAMFS Style version has SU but you CANNOT write to the /system directory. This is a good all around Rom for those who may need SU but do not need to write to /system.

Full On Root is just that, you have full read write to the /system and can customize the Rom to your hreats content.




HOW TO INSTALL:

TO FLASH CRAMFS STYLE 3.0 Put the UPDATE.IMG file from the Cramfstyle Folder onto your SD card, while tablet is on and follow the on screen instructions.

After running the self extracting Zip file you will have a directory containing the following folders and files.

Drivers (folder)
CramfsStyle(folder)
FullonRoot(folder)
Log(folder)
Language(folder)
Readmefirst.txt
Rkusb.log
RkusbComm.dll
Setting.ini
RK29update.exe


TO FLASH CRAMFS STYLE 3.0 Put the UPDATE.IMG file from the Cramfstyle Folder onto your SD card, while tablet is on and follow the on screen instructions.

To flash Full On ROOT, Plug your nextbook into your PC via usb cable. Turn your nextbook over and with a safety pin or something of similar size, press and hold the reset button for 2 to 3 seconds.

Run the RK29update.exe

Select your Rom files via the boxes containing the .... And navigate to the correct directory for the rom you want to install.

Insert eache file in order according to the update tool.

Clear IDB. (this is like a lowlevel format for the Rom tool:

After the Tool says OK. Select Run. This will begin to load the Rom onto your tablet. It will go through loading and then checking the Rom install.

After the Rom loads and the tool comes back with an OK, patiently wait for the tablet to reboot, and load the new ROM. If the tablet is still connected to the pc via USB when the rom boots it will show the screen allowing you to select weather or not to turn on USB storage. Press the home key and you will be given a choice of Golauncher or Rklauncher. (go lock is a screen lock program.)

Enjoy the Rom!

Features for both Roms:
Complete and correctly working market. It now correctly associates the tablet to your gmail account allowing purchases from market.
Launcher 3.0 as well as Go launcher ex. Launcher 3.0 was pulled from an rk2918 firmware3.0 update and put into this rom.
Google Calendar is now back and working correctly.
Original Email is back and working correctly.
Included Kindle App
Included Estrongs file explorer.
Both have SU though the Cramfs version cannot write to SW.

Removed Apps Added in last release and return to more of a original rom state.

Rom is pretty clean. And seems speedy.


Cramfs Style 3.0 Rom has 200mb internal Ram +/-


Full On Root 2.0 has 894MB of Free Internal Ram.



Cheers!

I used Wendal's tool to decompress the cramfs file system.

As for the /system, Because the device uses cramfs, and based on everything I have read, using Wendal's tool to decompress the file system, make the changes, and compress is the only way I can see to be able to
customize the rom for the device. The image is rooted, but after the update.img is compressed, the /system file remains read only. I tested this using root explorer, but anything requiring su works fine. But all hope may not be lost, I was reading on a chumby forum someone suggested using mkfs.jffs to make it writable, but further down it notes that you would need to change the kernel (easy enough to recompile I think), to utilize a different file system. The boot loader would also need to be modified, something I am not ready to try and tackle just yet, I think I would be bricking my nextbook pretty quickly.

It is a start and I am actually learning a lot as I go.

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

I am definitely a long time user / cyanogenmod / aosp fan, but as far as ripping open .img files its definitely new territory, I tried to find an internal SD card like the nook has, to maybe dump it, but I cannot find such a beast. Any progress you make is awesome. So do things like root explorer work, just not on /system due to cramfs?

Correct, root explorer does work, but due to cramfs, it does not allow you to toggle to rw from ro on the /system.

Working on taking apart apk's and customizing and rebuilding and resigning next.

just flashed this rom and it works great!

How would I go about doing a custom boot animation or image?
... even if it means flashing a new rom from clean?

This is great. Thanks. The only question I have is why do I see so few items in Market? Does it have anyhting to do with compatability?

Default Calendar & Sync Access

First, thank you for your work.
Before I update by Next7P, have you included Google Calendar and Sync access in this update?
I use MyPhoneExplorer and will need calendar sync to work so I can fully use for business.

Thanks.

There is another method to get Google Market on the Next7P, I am a new user so I can not post the link, but google , forums Whirlpool net au archive 1756859
, very easy and works great, but cannot get sync to work.

Dan,

Thanks for the responses!


sgtfoo : You can use Wendal's rk29xx tool to take a copy of my rom image, or the original update downloadable from nextbookusa.com, and
unpack it. You then have access to the system directory in an editable format. you can go into the system folder /system/media and replace the bootanimation.zip file with another one. Just be sure the image format is 480x 800 and that the zip file has 0% compression ratio. After you make the changes, just repack .img file via Wendal's tool and reflash.


dodoclub : Not sure why. I have a full market. You might try clearing the data and cache for the market. My market shows pretty full, I.E. I got 31050 entries when I searched for facebook in the market.

Danno65: Actually that is something I have been working on. I can get my google calendar to sync, currently I am using a calendar from the market called Jorte, which works great, how ever, googles actual calendar.apk closes unexpectedly, I am thinking it is just a version problem with the calendar, but haven't had a lot of time to follow up on it.

FYI here is the link to Wendal's tool, which makes it much easier to work on the update.img file.

Cheers!

If you have any request or questions please feel free to ask, I will help anyway I can.

Thanks Dochoppy

Got one of these tablets for Christmass to replace an old broken tablet I use for work.

Google hosts our work email, so I still need to get Contacts and Appointments going, but I maybe able to side load them.

Noticed build.prop still has ro.secure=1. This prevents adb from having root access??
