CREDITS: This is posted for informational purposes only, and originally comes from MrGuy on TabletRoms for the Notionink Adam. Additional device specific information comes from roebeet on SlateDroid for the Viewsonic G Tablet, newbe5 and corvus on Modaco for the Advent Vega. With contributions from DJ_Steve (StephenH official NI dev), josh4trunks (Contract NI dev), and Dauiton from Tabletroms. Hardware acceleration and sound enabled by HomerSp. Thanks go to red_herringx for providing the system dump as well.

*** UPDATE 12:00pm EDT May 12th 2011 MrGuy has done it again, looks like the Market (gapps) issue has been resolved! MrGuy says " Borkata's link and HomerSp's test app helped a lot too"

May 5th 2011

Logged into IRC this morning and to my surprise there was some interesting chatter going on.

It seems that MrGuy has gotten as far as booting HoneyComb on the Adam. In the source post he has made his progress available for other devs to work on.

Although at this time, it seems to only work while holding your Adam upside down...

NOTE: In order to use this, you must make sure you use the utmost delicate hand gestures when touching your screen, as seen in the video.

***05/05/2011 11:24 [-04:00 GMT] PROGRESS: DJ_Steve aka StephenH in collaboration with MrGuy, has made progress in figuring out how to stop the Force Close. There seem to be some issues with the touch screen at this time..

14:03 -04:00 GMT ADD: roebeet's quick to get this on the GTAB



Tremendous progress was made this morning and is being made as you read this.

It's exciting news and thought I would share it with a sister tablet.

HoneyComb is booting on the Notion Ink Adam and now it's on the GTAB as well.

FRESH TODAY 9th May 2011 11:30AM EDT

Cross collaboration between devs of sister tablets in the ##adamroot freenode IRC channel this morning!

Devs: HomerSp got hardware acceleration working, newbe5/corvus got it working on the Advent Vega (video demo below) and DJ_Steve applied them to the Adam HC rom and confirmed to now be working smoothly!

So was he the one who won the Honeycomb bounty? Didn't they have a bounty on the first HC port?

No. You can be excited and optimistic. I think its a moral victory at this point but it'll spark hope again to some. But to others, they won't see it as nothing but a makeshift ROM with no value because its not the real thing. As a fan of modders and devs, I can feel excited for them because its a good accomplishment.

This is great news. It looked pretty laggy in the video. Now all we need is some leaked Nvidia drivers and we are set!
