The wait for the Notion Ink Adam was frustrating to say the least. Once the tablet finally went on sale, the wait for the Adam to ship was equally as irksome. Once Notion Ink’s wonder tablet turned out to be less wonderful than expected, that was just disappointing. But thanks to XDA you can now get the Adam experience with half the hassle, and maybe even rid yourself of some Viewsonic GTablet buyer’s remorse at the same time.
Those brilliant Android hackers have lifted the Eden UI firmware from the Adam and ported it over for use on Viewsonic’s slate. It isn’t fully functional — the camera among other things is out of commission — but that should only be a minor setback for now. Eventually the firmware will be fully functional, and we expect to see it ported to at least a few more tablets before it’s all said and done. Ah, what a bit of free time and ingenuity will get you.
