    I bought a Sylvania: over a year ago thinking there would be a custom rom, and have been waiting ever since. The thing is a brick with some custom love. How close are we to seeing some a functional release???? I'm about to put it out for a yard sale unless something changes.

    Well I'm a developer that really hoped I wouldn't be working on this alone. I released tools and documentation. Anyone can currently make their own custom stock kang. As you see, no one has. Unfortunately its been just me with little support or help. I made an irc channel and always reply every message I receive. I'm a busy busy person doing this for fun. I can release an ics rom for the CVS tablet right away but its nowhere near usable. I've been making a bit more progress lately but the biggest roadblock is the init binary in the ram disk is customized by infotm in some way and the kernel source they gave me lacks a proper configuration for the devices. I have someone working on kernel. We still lack serial and adb on the 7in devices so debugging is pretty challenging.

    Ouch, I incorrectly assumed that you had some help. My apologies if I sounded demanding. But given the state of things, it's to the yard-sale with this I guess.

    Sorry I have been busy programming for side jobs lately. The sytabex7s battery actually exploded but its OK since it can run off just direct power. I think I'll try to just release the current test build I'm using on the sytabex7 since I know I've been increasingly busy lately.

    Thanks for all the hardwork.

    I am stuck at the SYLVANIA LOGO screen on my synet7LP and need to reload the image from the SD card as there is no image saved on the tablet itself.

    I have been following the instructions on how to prepare the SD card with zSYS.img.

    Here is the Problem. When it boots up from the SD card after few seconds it displays the message "Update package is demaged!" I don't know if I am using the wrong file as I don't know the hwver or is it something else.

    Also the http://222.73.93.45 server is offline and I am having hard time getting those ius files. I was able to get couple of them from mediafire. Can someone upload them or tell me where else I can look for.

    Any response will be highly appreciated.

    TV, check your PM's. Did I send you one offering up my tablet with a busted screen to the dev cause? If not, you can have it and I can foot for shipping.

    Parrot, I hope you're not insulted by this question, but you are using the ius.exe burning tool to create the recovery image on the sd card, right? Anyway, I have a copy of 11.2.1.8.2.2.ius, which was the latest I could find the last time I needed to re-image my Sylvania. I could send that to you if that would help. I tried to attach it as a zip file but was unsuccessful.

    Since the update servers are down, and Sylvania told me they've been down for 2 months, and don't seem to have any plans to bring them back up, does anyone have the iUS file from the following location:

    http://dg-support2a.com/update/11.2.7.5/SYTABA7MX_Android_132869.ius

    Alright I'm back from my attempt to enjoy the end of summer. I'm about a week and a half into the new semester and I recently setup a new dedicated build server and switched to jellybean source. I know I'm horrible at getting releasables out but on that note, to the discussion above I DID release a bootable sd maker with a pretty nice write up. If iuw is giving you troubles and you are sure the update is correct, just follow the steps I gave. I'm slowly going through all my pm's and what not as well. As for moocow, whats the state of it? Is only the lcd broken? Is that the cvs model with no hdmi? Hows the battery? (my main testing tablet is running with out a battery right now since it exploded... xD oddly they run fine with no battery)

    Where can I find a guide to unpack / repack recovery.img?
    You can have the cwm 5.0.x or higher?
    I have a superpad (256MB RAM)
    Thank you.


    Sorry, but google translate

    PS: Where can I find the CM7 link?
