Greetings,

Me and krook1 have been working on a CM9 port for the Lenovo Ideapad K1. This is an Alpha release as there is still a lot of work to be done. I have included instructions to either flash as an update.zip with CWM recovery, or if your still on stock you can use the nvflash package.

I have very limited time to invest to this project so if anyone would like to help please join us at freenode IRC room #ideapad-k1. The source code download link is posted below.



Working
-Touchscreen
-Wifi
-Bluetooth
-Accelerometer
-Rotation Lock
-Internal and External Storage
-Audio (thx Koshu and digetx)
-HW Acceleration (thx digetx for green overlay fix)
-CWM Backup/Restore - Fixed by using updated CWM below

Not Working
-GPS? appears to work but doesn't connect?
-HD Video Streaming
-Microphone
-Camera

Haven't tested HDMI out

Changelog

- Fixed storage issue
Alpha 1.5
- Bluetooth fix (Audio doesn't work?)
- Full market compatibility
- Hardware buttons
- Rotation Lock Switch (Functions, but doesn't notify the SW layer)
- External SD mounted at /sdcard/external_sd and linked to /mnt/sdcard2

1. Place the update.zip on your external sdcard
2. Reboot into recovery.
3. Wipe data/Factory reset
4. Install .zip from sdcard
5. Choose the update.zip and say Yes
6. Flash gapps (optional)

Nvflash Package

To boot into APX mode:
1. Power off
2. Hold down the Vol - and the Vol +
3. While holding the Volume keys down, Power on
4. The display should go black, and both LED's on either side of the home button should light up. This is APX mode.

How to flash:
1. Extract the K1_CM9_nvflash.zip contents to a directory
2a. If using Windows, double click the "flash-windows.bat" file
2b. If using Linux, cd into the extracted directory and run either "sudo ./flash-linux.sh" or "./flash-linux.sh" from a root prompt

Just installed this, running great.

Installed Apex Launcher (smooth and fast)
link >>> Apex

Tried Chrome browser, kept crashing

Physical home button doesn't do nothing (no big deal, low priority)

Can't seem to get it connected to pc via usb port.
Storage > USB computer connection > MTP is checked.

This is excellent news.. ! Great to see progress on K1 custom ROMs!

Even though i have flashed custom roms on other android devices, i am a nOOB when it comes to K1 -- ie, should the tablet be rooted first before one can flash this ROM ? (using Root methods mentioned on other threads here?) or just do what is mentioned here ? -- Sorry.., but inputs here will help a lot of us.

DISREGARD THE POST BELOW. BROWSER STILL CRASHES. BUT THIS ONE INSTALLS IF ANYOE WANTS TO PLAY AROUND WITH IT.


Chrome browser works. The problem is the same that all other unofficial ICS builds on other devices have. It has to do with the Device Id Check in the apk from the market. Download chrome from the link below and you are smooth sailing.

Like any Android device, flashing custom rom need custom recovery installed (ie CWM revovery).
And root is needed to install custom recovery !

Even the default browser for ICS crashed a lot. So far no problems with dolphin browser HD from market. Its fast and smooth browsing on there.
