Notion Ink Adam – available Roms

last updated December 15th 2013

All links are permanently down,

I am sorry to say that after a good long run, all files were forcibly removed from my website by my webhost. Apparently the storage array I was hosted on was low on space, and they did an audit of all the sites on it and went through and analyzed the files there. There seems to be a clause in my hosting agreement wherein “file sharing” and “personal file storage” are forbidden. All files were delete pertaining to this device and all other Android devices that I had shared.

I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause some people, I do not even have a local backup of the files as I cleared my local copy off after I sold my Adam. I wish those of you still using this awesome and ground breaking Tablet the best of luck. I just wish there had been more devices made by Notion Ink as I still miss the ability to switch to eink mode and despise constantly hunting for a charger to keep my large screen devices running.


added cm10, aokp 4.1.2, and aosp 4.2.1, shortened the webpage by replacing all archived links with a single link to the archive folder.

I have made available here on my website a mirror for a significant number of Roms to install on the Adam, including the Stock images and updates. I just decided it might make sense to post their links on my website, since I am mirroring them here. clicking on the name of the mod will take you to the forum on where the developer is posting updates and answering questions. Please click the links for installation instructions, support, and to check for newer versions, I cannot guarantee I have the newest updates, but I will try. I have not virus scanned any of these, I have not unpacked/repacked any of these, the only files I even renamed were ones with the default name “” as you cannot have 20 files called and expect your hair not to fall out! The only promise I can give is that I won’t take these files down unless the developers ask me to do so! Any changes I might make for my own use will never be posted on this page, I will make a separate post if I decide to ever do that, to avoid confusion.

Again, this is just a mirror location, not the official or original site for any of these Roms. Nor am I affiliated with any of the developers, besides being a poster on some of the same forums. Just trying to help preserve the history of these Roms, and provide an additional location to gain access to them.

First off I want to post this link to and their page for working on Honeycomb on the Notion Ink Adam. If anyone reading this has any Kernel development experience, they need just a bit of help and the Rom will be completely working for everyone! So go here to help out if you can.

just a note, this is designed to work with specific Kernels, if it does nothing of FC’s on you, go to the XDA linked page and read the posts! This requires specific things built in to the Kernel to function.

Notion Ink Adam Stock Roms and Updates

These are the NI Roms that I have gotten from the NIH website (mostly the unbricking website, except the one that was linked to XDA, I think, or maybe that was the Adam Stock Apps… I get confused, a lot…). I have posted them for safe keeping in case other sources disappear, and to make they are available when/if I need them. For the Honeycomb Roms, I have started numbering them 1.0, 1.1… this is not any official numbering and I think I missed one, we will call that one 0.90 if I ever find it/decide to put it up here.

Notion Ink Adam Honeycomb Rom 1.1 (July 5th 2011) – includes the update

***May 31st 2011 Eden 1.5 update files***
I have checked the contents and the file creation dates are May 31st between 9:25 and 11:00
note, I renamed these files, because NI called all of them “” to install without clockwork mod (which I thin kmost have stopped using) you will need to rename the file to before you flash it.
