I'm posting this thread to make it easy to find the ROM for newbees...


Please read ALL Informations carefully, before using this rom !

Disclaimer - This procedure is given here in a "as-is" format. I have personally verified it and have it running, but, the ultimate responsibility of performing this lies on you. I will not be responsible for dead / bricked devices or any such similar unfortunate situations.


  1. Download the ROM from the link.
  2. Extract the DLOAD folder from the zip.
  3. Copy the DLOAD folder to the root of your Micro SD card. You can use a card reader or copy using the mediapad itself using MTP over USB cable.
  4. Power OFF the mediapad.
  5. Insert the Micro SD card to the mediapad and Power ON.
  6. ROM Upgrade will start automatically. Follow the onscreen directions. Remove the MicroSD when instructed.
  7. The device will reboot automatically. Meanwhile delete the DLOAD folder in the MicroSD.
  8. Once fully booted copy sanixupdate folder from the downloaded ZIP to root of the INTERNAL STORAGE using the USB cable.
  9. Power OFF and Reboot.
  10. Now you have a ROOTED mediapad with ICS


    NOTE
    • By using this ROM you voide the warranty... But you can very easily go back to STOCK rom before claiming for warranty.
    • You loose 4G if you are using a T-mobile Springboard
    • Remember to delete the DLOAD folder from SD card after it is removed from the device as instructed on the device screen. Keeping the DLOAD folder on SD makes it re-flash everytime you POWER ON with the SD inserted.

For step 5 don't you have to boot to recovery, not just power on? Power + Left Volume. Took me many tries to do it right, was very annoying.

You dont have to boot in to recovery... If you have the unlmt.cfg file in your DLOAD folder, just POWER ON is enough to upgrade automatically.

On the otherhand if you remove the unlmt.cfg file in your DLOAD folder, you dont have to delete the DLOAD folder on step 7.

Odd. I didn't remove it but still had to specifically boot it to recovery. Was a pain and it boot regularly to the stock ROM several times.

So, who's been brave enough to try it? My mediapad is 24hrs old and I don't fancy my chances lol!

Can you still call and text with the ROM, and has anyone got any screenshots or benchmarks to show?

Cheers.

I upgraded following these instructions and had no problems. It seems to me that you can talk and text but I can't test it as I just have a data plan for this device.

For T-Mobile, how does this lose "4G?" Does that mean we're stick with 3G or Edge data speed? Does it revert to using 1900Mhz for 3G like AT&T uses?

For T-Mobile, it means we are stuck with maximum of 3G speeds. I'm messing with the build.prop and a few other things right now to see if that could be what the issue is. Really, it's not a detriment one way or the other.

Any of the devs noticed how messy the build.prop and just disorganized in general the system seems to be?

Are you using the device as a phone or just a data tablet? If phone, what voice plan do you have?

Works much much better than stock HC thats for sure. With the exception of the lack of 4g (which i honestly barely notice) and some oddities with touchscreen sensitivity its been perfect.
