    For all of you who are curious to try CM9 ICS Android 4.0.4 on the S7-105 (may work with others 10x...?)

    Remember this is work-in-progress, so some things does not work as expected (yet?) !!!
    ( but some may find it is stable enough... :) )


    What you need:

    - know how to flash using recovery or fastboot
    - flash the latest recovery


    Install:

    1. get the rom (123,7Mb)
    2. copy the file to the internal SD
    3. boot to recovery and do backup and a full wipe data
    4. select 'install zip from sdcard', choose the zip and flash
    5. reboot and wait


    Work:
    1. capacitive touchscreen
    2. wifi
    3. tablet mode enabled by default
    4. ...almost everything else ;-)

    Does not work:
    1. bluetooth
    2. cameras
    3. tethering (see Tips)
    4. skype, netflix, flash, ...??
    5. some sound noises (I've confirmed its not kernel's fault, it is something in the configs/libs, will try to debug it when a stable CM10 is available)



    NOTE:
    it is recommended to have a 2ยบ partition (sd-ext) on the internal SD for the Data partition, to be able to install lots of apps!


    TIPS & TRICKS:

    -> wifi tether may work:
    Install from the market app WiFi tether, then go to settings and check MSS clamping and Ruting fix. Then click on Change Device-Profile and check Generic ICS/JB (wlan1) and finally click on Change Setup-Method and click on WEXT. Probably there is no need to do all of this but after one hour playing with this I can finally use hot spot. (tip by member Just_me)
    -> latest Google Apps:
    CyanogenMod Wiki
    (install from recovery)
    -> google play does not show apps or say they are incompatible:
    try download the .apk file to the sdcard and install manually, or set the Lcd density to 160.
    you can also try this (tip by member fbcomp)
    -> small performance gain:
    Disable CPU Rendering



    Enjoy!!
    Suggestions are welcome!!

    This is possible thanks to the work of ere95588, asturel, goodoane, angelsgroup and probably others..??

    First of all hats off Asturel for bringing a dead tab back to life. And thanks to Jota and others for working so hard to get things going on S7. The above images work
    on my S7-101 with cap touch screen (Yes the label says 101 and its capacitive) bought last year in Oct!). While Asturel's did not go beyond boot screen with IDEOS logo - Tried various processess outlined in slim forum with no luck. I understand its more for Slim. I wish the posts by individuals carry an s after S7 to identify if it has been tested working on Slim and simple S7 for the FAT.

    But I do have a problem that it gives an audible tone every few seconds until I turn off touch sounds. No idea why? Anyone?

    Thanks again.

    After posting noticed my radio is not on so no network. And on reboot asks for password?! :(

    I think we should concentrate in having a good and stable cm9 for the s7-10x, because cm10 is still in development by the CyanogenMod team!

    But, what are the advantages of cm10 over cm9??

    Don't panic!... :)
    depending on the previous rom you have installed, there's no combination that works...

    try this:
    let your tablet boot, connect the usb cable, and type
    adb reboot recovery

    Install the original rom via UPDATA, boot the tablet, enable USB debug, so that your computer can see your tablet ( to test try adb shell ), and then adb reboot recovery should work.

    To install cm9 you only need fastboot.

    the recovery is needed only to do a backup and wipe data (recommended).

    For recovery access pull out battery if you are in fastboot mode then press menu(left side in the middle) + call(right side green one) + power and keep them pressed after first screen with ideos release power button and cheep the other two pressed until a black screen show up (recovery dos not have boot image) release the two key and you wil be on recovery.
    For fastboot press up and down volume+power.
