    just put the zip file onto your external sd card..boot into recovery and apply update from sdcard

    Ok...here it goes.

    This is my first update package I've ever made. So if it doesn't work perfectly please be patient while I figure out the things I've done wrong and how I can make things better in the future. It works on my W17 and I have "tablet" root and full market with the i9100 footprint.

    Future builds will include an unlocked boot.img for ADB root access & some additions of some choice Gapps that aren't installed like the People app for example.


    Put this on the root directory of an SD card and boot your W17 while holding down the - button. When you go into recovery choose "Install From SD Card" and choose the zip. The script will do the rest.

    If Facebook and other choice apps do not show up, you might have to go into your System -> Apps on your tablet and choose GoogleServicesFramwork and clear cache/clear data force stop. Also do the same with Google Play Store. Then open the store you will get an error. Just reset your tablet.

    I can see all gameloft/EA games with this and it has played everyone so far.

    Going to take a nap :)

    0616 repack - Full root, full market.

    0616 rom runs at 1200max I've noticed. So if you want faster you should probably stick to 0517. If you were one of the people crying and complaining about how hot the tablet is, then you should go with 0616 and sacrifice a little bit of speed for the comfort of your hands.
