So i have an A500 i rooted awhile ago.

It runs android 4.1.2
CM10

cwm bootloader 5.5.0 x thor2002ro rev 1.7


i think i installed it from cm10-flex_v6Supercharged_rev2.3_gappsIncl_public....


now i'm thinking about upgrading to android 4.4, as there seems to be one out for A500.

of course it says i need to upgrade my CWM to 6.0.4.5...

this file of course says i need to install Skrilax bootloader.

And skrilax says i need nvflash to install it.


so considering what i currently have installed, is this the correct and easiest way to go about installing a new rom`?


(i keep getting dizzy every time i try upgrading my tablet, because all these guides are soooo confusing, always referring to something that's not explained in the guides.)

The ? means you have a connection between your pc and tab.

You are able to issue fastboot commands from yr pc. If you have a recovery.img file you can ' fastboot flash '.

The other way to flash a custom recovery is to use a 'flashable zip'. You could have used this method, by copying the zip to yr sdcard and booting to your cwm RECOVERY and using the flash zip option in the menu.

No matter tho, u sussed it out yrself, sweet
