I have tried twice to make a CM9-build for my Newsmy P9 but none of my builds were succesful so i'am very glad that you succeeded. I'll help you developping the ROM (for Newsmy P9).
Nice to know: One member of our community ported the CWM-recovery to the RK2918 ( it's in dutch...

Thumbs up Finally!
Finally there is someone who tries to cover our "forgotten" RK2918 Tablets. When I bought my Onda vi30 RK2918 Tablet last November I was certain to get the option to upgrade to ICS sooner or later...but neither "sooner" nor "later" came along... :)

But I tried your instruction and get stuck at the screen for CWM. I shows up quiet nicely but the touchscreen isn't recognized properly. Here's what happens:

When I tap on the UP or DOWN or any other Softkey on the screen nothing happens. The keys are just not "pressed". HOWEVER: Once (in landscape orientation) I put my fingers on the upper left corner the small lines above the keys flicker. To make it clearer: the area of the key recognition is way off!

Is there a way to flash the CWM Recovery using my stock rom kernel so that the touchscreen is calibrated accordingly?

Thanks for your help, let me know if I can help with some Try-and-Error :)

Could not merge - no boot

I have tried to merge the recovery image with the official Cube u18gt elite but no luck. Unpacked with RK Tools, replaced recovery.img with the modified one, packed, flash, no boot. Could you please help a noob and point me in the right direction? Thank you.

I was doing some searches this week and came across a post about having to turn the screen to the right or left to go up or down. I don't think it was XDA, was just a general google search on RK 2918 or RockChip 2918. My wife has a Mediacom smartpad 850i.
