    A new updated version just came out (Beta 5.1, dated May 7, 2012) with an enhanced Audio driver that can support Skype calls.

    Skype required higher quality voice sampling rates, now cas_xp released this to allow Skipe to work.

    Attachment is on the XDA thread - Beta5.1_Skype-sign.zip, 180 KB or so; install on top of a Beta 5, no backups are required as it's just a driver update.

    Hey. Is anyone else having a problem where if your listening to music, video, etc. you get a hissing static noise in quiet scenes or in the background? It happened before the 5.1 update so that's not it. It's not my headphones because they sound fine on my iPod. It's been going on for as long as I've had the tablet. Sometimes it's a distorted or high pitched sound between silence and talking such as on Netflix.

    More news on CM7 - Cas_xp made an edit to the OP at XDA release thread. A Beta 6 is imminent :

    Notice the last line (in red), I think he had attached the Beta 6 release but pulled it out due to finding a last minute glitch. Still, fingers crossed, it should be out soon.

    Thanks, cas_xp. :)

    The Beta 6 file was released a few days ago, it's pretty small as it's only an Update.

    Install it on top of a working Beta 5.1 tablet. No need to backup things as the install will not delete any files.

    Get the Beta 6 File (GPS enabled and working!) HERE.

    Thanks for all your work, Yann2, I'm sure you've made a lot of people happy.
    If camcorder doesn't work, will Skype video call work?
    I hope you or someone can work on the camcorder issue..

    Hey guys, I installed Beta 6, but GPS still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    You are welcome, the credit for the CM7 Betas development is really due to Cas_xp, I just help by doing documentation, supporting users and spreading the good news. :)

    I don't think Skype video calling would work, if the camcorder is not working.

    Maybe someone else can try and work in that portion of the operating system - a patch could be installed on top of existing installs if someone can make it work.

    I am glad for the GPS, that's something cas_xp was not familiar with, and yet, he got it working.

    Try one of the GPS Test apps from the Play store.

    I downloaded GPS test, but am not sure what I'm looking at. Help?? I have 2 navigation programs and it says waiting for signal. Did I install the update incorrectly? Yann2, is it working for you?

    It seems that the updates aren't taking. My android version 5. Is there a new version of Clockworkmod that was released?

    I used 'GPS Test' from the Play Store, aka Android Market. It's simple, it's free and a quick way to see if the GPS is working without having to find some good mapping/GPS program.

    You must enable 'Use GPS for Location' and 'Use Internal GPS', in the Settings Application - it's under 'Location', I believe.

    I just replied to your post about that on the CM7 Tutorial/Install Guide; the 5.1 and 6 Betas are reslly small, and add some needed files but did not change the Version number under the 'About Tablet'.

    They will be installed, if you asked CWM to do it. ;)

    Good luck!

    ** Want to show Beta 6 version in the Settings, About Tablet panel, on your cool CM7 install?

    Edit the /system/build.prop file, find this line (it's about the 8th line from the top of the file, easy to find):

    And just change to :

    ro.build.version.release=2.3.7 Beta 6 modded by cas_xp

    ** Also - for lovers of Visual Candy..... :p

    I have this cool CM9 bootanimation file, it's from my Touchpad's last update. While we can't have a full ICS CM9 release on the LP1 yet, at least you CAN use the bootanimation if you like.

    It's a bit big, at 6 MB; haven't tried to see how it runs on the LP1 yet.

    Here's one of the frames (resized to 720 pix to fit the forum) :

    [​IMG]

    ^---- CLICK on the image to see full size (1024x768) original.

    Interested? Get CM9 Bootanimation file HERE. ;)

    Installation tips:

    - file must be renamed, from 'CM9-bootanimation.zip' to simply 'bootanimation.zip'.

    - file must be copied to your /system/media/ folder; reboot to see it load.

    - you might want to back up your existing boot animation, simply renamed it to something like .bak (or copy it elsewhere).

    And a nice bit of statistics...

    I was surprised to see the number of downloads (for CM7 Beta 5) from my Mirrored copy, which I linked here in the original post. Currently, it shows :

    [​IMG]

    616 times, and still growing; it was under 600 a couple days ago. :)

    Good to see how many people are trying out this much nicer operating system for their Le Pan TC970 tablet. Cheers! :)

    Hello
    I don't know if it actually works with other TC 970 tablets, but it won't work on mine.
    Successfully installed then restarted, and the CM7 logo runs forever. I tried to restore the original ROM by holding vol- + power by reset, but hopeless.
    Then waited 16hrs for the battery to be out ~> replugged power ~> vol- + power ~> still the CM7 boot up logo ~> tried again for a dozen times ~> still CM7 boot up logo ~> WTF
    I really appreciate what you guys have done for us, but overwrite the ROM-flash boot-up combination, seriously?
