What’s the best ROM/Custom Firmware for the Ainol Elf II

Hello guys and welcome to our new blog followers and readers! Today I want to talk about the choice of custom firmwares (alternative ROMs) for the Ainol Elf II.

If you were following the blog, you should already know that I got my Ainol Elf 2 tablet delivered from china using EMS about a two weeks ago, and during these two weeks I was testing all of the available official firmwares and custom ROMs to get the best out of my tablet especially that chinese tablets aren’t very good at performance. However this tablet seemed to be the best 7″ tablet when it comes to performance/price, and it did a very good job with all of the firmwares I tried, but there are always some advantages and disadvantages for each ROM.

I won’t be talking alot about performance in this post, benchmarks will arrive in another one. This post will talk about the tablet in the user’s perspective (do games work? is there a lag? are there some features missing?)

New Ainol Elf 2 ROM: “Eleven” released

Image

Hello awesome blog followers, today I want to talk about a new custom (non official) ROM called “Eleven”. For those who don’t know what a ROM is, here is what the folks at Lifehacker say about it:

What’s a ROM?

One of the best things about the openness of the Android platform is that if you’re unhappy with the stock OS, you can install one of many modified versions of Android (called ROMs) on your device. The downside is that there are so many developers and different Android devices out there that the custom ROM scene can be very difficult to navigate.

What’s in my order

Hello guys 🙂 this is just a post to tell you what will come (and what will I review) when the package arrives to Tunisia. Just a reminder: As I told you in an earlier post, the EMS tracking system says that the package left GUANGZHOU to Tunisia or an International HUB (this is my first time getting an EMS package :p). So, here is what I will get (probably in 3/4 days):

First of all, the Ainol Elf 2 tablet itself for 111$

A nice Leather case for Ainol Novo7 Elf 2
Image
An IPhone Tripod I always wanted, because I use my iPhone to shoot & film
Image
2xStylus Pen for both the Ainol Elf 2 and my iPhone
Image
Mini HDMI to HDMI cable for the Ainol Elf II (2)
Image
HDMI to VGA/RCA cable for my old TV
Image
VGA to RCA/S-Video cable for my iPhone (to my old TV)

My Ainol Elf 2 just left GUANGZHOU :D

Updates! Here is a new update on my Ainol Novo7 Elf II (& accessories) package I ordered from McBub: It just left GUANGZHOU, next step is either an International HUB (USA, GB…) or directly to my country Tunisia.

Good morning everybody, I just checked the EMS tracking website and there is a new update: My Ainol Elf 2 just arrived at GUANGZHOU where it will be handed to customs, released from customs then transferred to Tunisia! Am very happy! I was a little bit worried because there were no updates for a while 🙂
