    please understand "DO NO USE" warning on my site. just wait CM7 for 7016(don't ask when).

    I think files in 7016 ROM other than bootloader and kernel are almost same as EM71. I'll make CM7 for 7016 with files for EM71.
    if you can upload system.img, I'll verify how same as EM71.

    btw I tried 7016 kernel from you on my 7015 with bootloader from EM71 2.3 ROM. it works fine.
    I guess hardware difference between 7015 and 7016 is only NAND pagesize.

    probably EM71 ROM will work on 7016 with pagesize tweak, and 7016 dumped ROM will work on 7015 with 2.3 bootloader. I don't recommend but 2.3 bootloader for EM71(7015) will work on 7016 which gives +512MB /data.

    if someone has interest to use 7016 ROM on 7015, please give me boot.img and system.img.

    Sorry.. I'm not quite following you here.. bootloader meaning boot.img ? kernel = system.img ?

    You can download boot & system.img from the Kyros 7016 here:

    generally bootloader is named as lk.rom. there is no lk.rom for 7016 and no way to backup from tablet, so I don't recommend to flash lk.rom for EM71(7015) unless you can accept any result e.g. brick your 7016 at worst case.
    kernel is part of boot.img and recovery.img.
    bootloader and kernel are very important parts and they heavily depend on hardware. you can't use them for different hardware. (please don't think like CPU is same == hardware is same)

    rest of parts e.g. system.img are not so important and most parts can be exchangeable among different hardwares.

    but on some cases e.g. 7015 and 7016 they are almost same hardware and just different NAND pagesize, bootloader and kernel can be shared (just my guessing).

    I'll try your 7016 stock images on my 7015 soon...

    EDIT:
    I tried & confirmed 7016 stock images are working on 7015 with 2.3 bootloader and pagesize tweak. 7016 users should be able to use 7015 ROMs with pagesize tweak.
    I'll make clockworkdmod/cyanogenmod for 7016 with same files as 7015 but different pagesize.

    thank you for your cooperation.

    Thanks fun.. nice piece of work

    Should we make this thread sticky since both Clockworkmod recovery and CM7 can now be installed on the 7016 ?
