Tablet [SOLVED/GUIDE] ROOT & CM9 for Sumvsion Astro +, also MOMO9 and similar tablet devices

Thank god, I have finally done it! My Sumvision Astro is now rooted and has CM9 running!

Other similar tablets are also supported, i.e MOMO9, read on to step 3 and look at second url for cm9 patched devices!

GUIDE:


1) Download and use sausage mod:

Use option 5!

If you get stuck read through Sausages info:

http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/2991...a1x-platforms/


2) To Enter CWM from powered down state, hold Volume Down & Menu and then press power button for 5 seconds and release it keeping both Vol Down and Menu held down, then when the screen back light comes on release Vol Down, then two seconds later release Menu, you will now enter CWM!


3) Grab latest Rom & Device Specific patch from here, in this case we want MOMO9, but there is also support for other devices as well!

http://www.androidfilehost.com/main/...oy/misc/1.2.x/


4) Install CM9 first, then momo9 patch, reboot, all done!


5) You can now boot into your rooted device with CM9, and in future you can select reboot from te power menu with direct reboot to CWM

Enjoy!

Thanks for the info here, looks like good stuff.
However, in recovery mode my volume buttons don't respond so I cant select any options.
Also, running SausageMod in recovery, the device isn't recognised.....
Any ideas?

Thanks again for the post.

Peace.

Excellent, glad you managed to get it all done, apologies I never saw your original post so pleased you got it all solved

Is it an Astro or Momo9 device you are using as a matter of interest?

All the best

CM9 installed OK but I am getting an error (signature verification failed) when I try to install the Momo9 patch.

The tab will boot to CM9 but I have no touchscreen response.

Having it rooted is giving my hd2 a temporary break .... not for long tho!
I would like to add a menu button to the soft keys, but can't seem to find a way to do it ... any ideas??

Maybe try downloading the patch again, sounds like a corrupted file?

Which model are you using? Mine is an Astro+, there are couple of variants, so it may vary, unless you have already resolved the issue?

Let me know

Sadly, no I don't know of a way, maybe see if its been achieved else, the solution may be universal if you are lucky!

Thanks for the replies.

My tab is an 8Gb Astro+. It works fine on stock firmware and I have also ran a few scripts which have improved the overall performance a bit.

I think my main problem is that CWM 5 is causing problems on my device. I can flash CWN fine and boot into it. I can also flash the update zips but the tab will not reboot. It just gets to a black screen and hangs. Thankfully I can reflash it with the stock ROM and its fine again.

I get the "signature verification failed" when I use the stock recovery, not in CWM.

I have tried this now with several different CWM5 sources but it just will not work for me

OK, I got it sorted

I must have tried CWM a dozen times and it didn't work. I came across this thread (h t t p : / / scrolltabletforum.co.uk/site/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=3012&start=20) and I installed both the 4.0.3 img and the 4.0.4 update.

The 4.0.3 img installed a version of CWM that worked on my tab. I'm now running CM10 and my tab is flying .
