Android knows how to give credit in style!

**NOW GOT MARKET & GAPPS WORKING!**

This ROM will only work on ACER ASPIRE ONE NETBOOKS THAT CAME WITH ANDROID OUT OF THE BOX!


GingerAspire is a modified version of Insyde's Android 2.3.1 for Acer netbooks. Most of their netbooks will never upgrade Android OS versions, so I am porting from the files provided in the D257 to the rest of the range.

BIG THANKS TO TYNXPL FOR THE FILES FROM THE D257!


The features in the 'working section' should work, as long as you have a Acer Netbook that has the Insyde drivers.

Working:
Boots
Installs apps
WiFi
GPS
Google Apps
Live Wallpapers
Camera
Downloading files


Watching videos & listening to music - Some work, some need codecs that aren't compatibile with x86
Bluetooth
3G

(I don't have the model with Bluetooth and 3G, so if it works, please say below )

Doesn't work (yet):
OpenGL ES (No apps such as Google Music then)
I couldn't get apps2sd (or different partition) to work


Screenshots:





What 3rd party apps come with it?
XDA Free app
Dolphin Browser HD (replaces stock browser as it actually works)
Terminal Emulator
Droid Tips (the home screen tips widget)
CatLog (for reporting bugs to me)
GApps (maps, market, gmail etc.)
YouTube
Facebook (old one that works)
Twitter
