I have rooted/unlocked many android devices in the past 3-4 years. But I don't understand the instructions in the OP's post.
I have a A1-07 16gb on which manufacturing date starts with a 12xxxx. At the moment I have stock ICS ver 0080. I did try the 0116 ICS but had a few bugs so went back to the 0080 which I got from here
So from what I understand is that since I have 12xxxx mfg date I can only have the stock ICS and SlimDroid. I found this info on OP's home page.
Now how do I flash the Slimdroid? In the second post it says to flash with CWM. How do I get CWM on my A1?
Can I just flash it with the stock recovery? What does the SlimDroid v7.40 actually do? Is it a custom rom?
I also want to root my tablet. For that I see the A1_root.zip linked. Again it says to flash with CWM. Can I just do that with stock receovery?
Where do I place these files to flash. Do i need an external sd card for this or can I just place Slimdroid/A1_root.zip on the internal sd?
Will I loose the SD card functionality since there's a patch for it? If someone can simplify things in plain english for me and others here that would be great. Thanks!
