Lenovo Ideapad K1 CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich Unofficial Port

We now have unofficial Cayanogen Mod 9 for Lenovo Ideapad K1, thanks to "Khanning"

This is an unofficial CM9 port for the Lenovo Ideapad K1 tablet. To flash this Rom you must be already running the official Lenovo ICS Rom or my AOSP ICS build. This WILL NOT work if you are currently running Honeycomb or the Alpha cm9 port, update to one of the newer Roms then flash this from CWM recovery.
