    First public edition will be posted today, please keep in mind this ROM is a hybrid designed to work with the latest ainol crystal aka ELF III tablet, I am simply creating reverse compatibility to work on the ELF II and Possibly Aurora II.

    Hi, Can I update directly from darkelf v1.0? What is not working with this rom? can you make a video-review of this rom? I would like to see it working before I install it to my elf 2.
