This method works by flashing a prerooted ROM (with CWM included) on your device which will erase all the data present on the device – so make sure you back up all the data that you feel is important.2. Make sure that the APX drivers are installed on your PC before you proceed. If not, use the download link below to install them.3. Plse note that installing this ROM will change your device ID to that of a Xoom tablet to enable access to apps that are usually not available for the IdPad K1. If you are not okay with this, stop now and do not continue further!!4. This method is only for the US version of the IdPad K1 tablet.II.
