  2. I have just fixed my Ainol Aurora with the script from
    http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/27202-scripts-lordsbm-script-for-all-allwinner-a10-tablet-ics-firmwares/

    Everything works perfect except steering in racing games. It seems like sensor is 90 degrees off the mark. I have to hold tablet in portrait mode for gravity sensor to work correctly but once you rotate the tablet game stays in landscape mode.

    1. Even i get the problem of rotation, the camera menus are rotated to portrait mode when i the tablet is actually in landscape mode.

  3. Just to make sure only. Should I first unzip the installer in sd card of tablet then run the .bat in that location after? Same with the usb driver?

    thank you

    1. I don't know?!? I didn't write the script (see above, credit goes to), it was meant to be for Allwinner A10 CPUs, I really can't tell you if it'll work with a Paladin as well? SORRY :-(

    3. Dear All,
      Finally i fixed my problem by installing the ics 4.0.3 as the previous problem was very dificult to solved in few hours and without experience :-) . The ics 4.0.3 is working perfect. Just to mention that the above solution for the android market was working perfect and the problem occured after my wrong sets, so be very carefull with the settings and add only 160.
      Regards, V.

  9. Simply Awesome ....
    Thank you so much to all who worked hard on this.
    I followed the tutorial to the tee and it worked pretty much as expected. Only thing was that the Elf did not reboot via the PC. I unplugged it and then rebooted. Looked in my apps and saw the Market. Having fun downloading my favorite apps now.

    1. If you have a boot loop, probably the only thing you can do is to flash a firmware on it. I didn't write this script (see credit in my post), so I really can't tell you what might be causing the problem. SORRY :-(

    1. I really don't know what the author means by that, I guess what he's trying to say is that you should do this procedure after a "fresh" boot and after "playing" with the tablet for hours, possibly having a bunch of apps running in the background that might cause problems with the script.

  21. Will we face any problem after the launch of google's new unified market place called Google Play? Have you test it?

  22. Will this work on the Ainol Novo7 Basic ICS 4.0?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm not sure but I don't think so? The person who wrote the script says it's for Allwinner A10 CPU tablets, the Basic has a different CPU. I wouldn't try it, if I were you.

      Delete
    2. Thanks, do you know of a way to get the basic updated? thanks

      Delete
    3. Sorry, I don't, I haven't had Basic in a long time. If I were you, I'd look on slatedroid.com, if somebody knows anything, that's the right place to look :-)

  23. When downloading market fix according to you tube video.. I had to download 64bit drivers to pc to get computer to recognize tablet. The PdaNet download from slatedroid most helpful. Market fix script download seemed to go well ..it rebooted then script asked if wanted extra download when I typed y for yes the program ran a little bit then stopped. My tablet then said "unfortunately process android.process.acore has stopped." The icons for the apps appeared but no access. Message kept appearing. I decided to select the factory reset option...now all I get is the scrolling "Ainol" screen. It doesnt ever close. I am a Speech Pathologist that purchased device to help student communicate. Can anyone out there help me so that I can help someone else?

    1. If your tablet won't boot, I guess the only thing you can do is to try to flash the original firmware on it. Unfortunately I don't have the tablet anymore, so I really can't help you :-( If I were you, I'd look on slatedroid for help and maybe a firmware?

      Good luck!

  26. After i installed this, my Ainol ELF has been working like a phone instead of a tablet. It has all the phone applications installed on it. I dont have a problem with that, but whats happening is all the apps i download are mobile optimized apps and they are not looking so good on a 7 inch tablet.

    Is there something related to resolution/device mode im missing here? or is it how its supposed to be??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I THINK this was the scripts author's plan, in the build.prob the tablet is now identified as a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone, that way the market lets it download apps that usually wouldn't show up at all.

      Delete
    2. I got it. i downloaded LCD Density Modder and set resolution to 160. Looking great now.
