Hack A10 Devices

This page describe how to hack a A10 powered tablet and let a custom kernel to run on the tablet. The work was done on an Ainol Novo 7 Advanced tablet. But should be working on all A10 based tablet. Since A10 can boot from usb, never worry about bricking your device.

Get a console

The stock firmware in my Novo7 is android 2.3.4. With android adb i can log into the device and take a look at inside.
