CyanogenMod 7 Work-In-Progress for Lenovo Ideapad A1

It’s pretty much apropos for all new and high end devices to get a CyanogenMod ROM of some sort. Most will get CyanogenMod7 and we’ve been following the releases of CyanogenMod9.

Well, XDA members of the Lenovo Ideapad A1 aren’t going to be left behind. XDA Member gmarkall has begun work compiling CyanogenMod7 for the spunky tablet and its users.

It’s still a work in progress and there isn’t a flashable zip for the ROM yet, but based on updates over the last few days, gmarkall is making progress. As the to-do list states:

This is just a beginning of a list, but I think the things that need to be worked on at the moment are:

Modify the Cyanogenmod build to be able to create a suitable update.zip for the A1.
Try flashing the update.zip, see what works, what doesn’t, build a list of non-working things, and then fix them one-by-one.
Since CWM for the A1 doesn’t yet support backups of the ramdisk, it would be handy to create an update.zip to restore the original Lenovo ramdisk.

So for those who are toting the Lenovo Ideapad A1 and can’t wait for CyanogenMod goodness, you’ll want to keep an eye on the original thread for updates and details. Also, for any developers who want to help finish the project, there’s a link for an IRC channel to join for collaboration purposes.

Making Your Own Xposed Modules Is Easier Than You Think

Close to the heart of XDA is the Xposed Framework by Rovo89. Most of us will have used it but you may feel that the module repository is missing something.

ZenFone 2 Lolliflash and ZenPower Giveaway!

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device.
