Hello World
« on: January 09, 2015, 03:50:32 PM »
This is actually my second post but I'll start there...

I've been a happy Android user for about 6 years and have ROMm'ed my devices for nearly that long. I bought my Sero 7 (my first Android-based tablet) about 18 months ago and I've liked it. I decided to not Root it or ROM it unless I "had to" -- old OS, cranky default configs, etc. And for the most part it's been fine.

But in the past few months I've had weird problems -- probably the most important one is that I couldn't install new apps because the cache had filled up. So I had installed App Cache Cleaner to clean that up, but sometimes that didn't work there. And then there was a lag that could happen (which, honestly, had always been there). And there was the fact that Hisense is never going to make an update on it, and while Ice Cream Sandwich is nice, it's also now 2 Android versions behind.

Therefore I started looking for a way to ROM it. Frankly I was concerned about there being little to any help because the Sero 7 is certainly not a mainstream tablet, but I figured someone had something out there.

So I finally found this forum and found good and simple rooting instructions and a good list of ROMs to try out. I had a little trouble (which I documented in my other post) but now I'm happily running Dopa 2.6 and it's working great! (and on a new version of KitKat than my phone. )

I'm not sure I reminded you as much as you remembered when reading my post.
