Hi everyone,

As most of you know Lenovo released the official ICS build for the Ideapad K1 today. The new bootloader will not allow me to boot into recovery partition, so no custom recovery for now. Unfortunately the build released by Lenovo also lacked Google Apps. I have added in the latest Google Apps package including Face Unlock. I have posted two versions of the Rom both rooted and not rooted. The non rooted is 100% stock with Google Apps. The rooted has the latest Superuser.apk and su binary and the latest busybox, and the boot.img has been modified to allow adb remount.

This will wipe your entire device. You will lose all apps and data. I am in no way responsible for your device, as always flash at your own risk.

Instructions

Extract .zip file

In windows:
Double click flash-windows.bat

In linux:
cd into extracted directory
chmod +x flash-linux.sh
sudo ./flash-linux.sh

I know this is probably a dumb question but do I need the apx drivers installed? I'm having problems getting them installed with the official lenovo package ones... Maybe someone could link me to a different place to find them...

Angry
First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to khanning88 for getting things done at this high speed.

However,I have issues on the Play Store. As a number of apps including Google Maps and Chrome cannot be downloaded directly via Play Store, which it said "Your device isn't compatible with this edition". So I have to grab them unofficially. Can we pretend the device to be a Xoom for maximum app compatibility, just like what you did in the rooted HC rom? Or is there any other solution?

Thanks in advance.

Recovery?
Awesome work - flashed root version - worked flawlessly.

Now, how can we reinstall CWM recovery - it seems to have disappeared? Installing the special recovery apk and opening does not reboot into recovery. Does anyone know if flashing ICS removed the recovery partition?
