So from now on we will be able to flash future updates through recovery without wiping everything?

Exactly, future updates will be CWM flashable .zip's.

All, I just noticed that Google Chrome isn't showing in the market, but Maps is. I swear it was showing up when I was testing previously. Will have to investigate...

I dont know if it's me or because of the ROM. WIth the rooted ROM before AOSP, I was able to install Chrome with a APK downloaded from mobilism but sometimes the pages are fine then just rendered white , for all tabs.

Does anybody use SKYPE ? When I do video chat, my broadcast picture stretched vertically when I broadcast-only (no picture feed from the other side), the picture my friend saw is fine though.

Many thanks for your hard work.

That is the main thing that i hate about Lenovo's Factory ICS image, i still cant install Chrome or Evernote, or many of my NEEDED apps. I hope that you get this working soon. or at least a temp fix.

Just flashed the rooted aosp, the boot animation is a nice touch. The app compatibility issue seems fully resolved outside of Chrome, pointed out already, which is no biggie for me atleast. I still can sideload Chrome and runs perfectly. Also, so far the dictionary miss-spell issue doesnt seem to be a problem anymore. Maybe its just me but touch responsiveness seems a little better/quicker with this build. Just tried using the command 'k1recovery' to boot into recovery and it keeps giving me an error relating to permissions, saying it cant create /dev/block/mmcblk0p5. Seems like I just need to change the permissions of the /block folder but wasnt sure if I was just not doing something right.

Massive improvements from Lenovo's vanilla ICS still, thanx khanning!

@Khanning88 Can you provide a mirror please? Goo.im is down and shows "Internal server error".

Never mind. It's up again.

Flashed this one and works wonderful.
Rebooting to recovery didn't work 1st, but then mounted filesystem as rw and tried the command and could get to recovery.
Got an error "Can't mount backup path" when trying to make a backup. Is it because I didn't have an external sd card.
If yes, is there a way to take a nandroid backup to internal memory?

BTW, thanks again for providing this ROM.
