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?)

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$

Ainol Novo7 Elf 2 vs Aurora 2 : IPS screen

Just a little comparison video that shows the difference between the normal screen of the Elf 2 and the IPS screen of the Aurora 2. I really didn’t wanted the IPS screen because I don’t think it is worth the additionnal 20$ but you might want to consider that if you are a hardcore gamer, or an internet addict.
