The HTC Flyer came up amongst the first breed of dual-core tablets but the thing which made it stand out amongst the dual core fleet was that HTC insisted in playing it out with an armv7 1.5GHz CPU along with android 2.3 Gingerbread topped up with HTC’s very own Sense v2.1 instead of going for the tablet friendly android 3.0 Honeycomb. The HTC Flyer to be true, cannot be treated to a face off against its dual core siblings in terms of HD playback or even some raw HD gaming. The hTC Flyer came up with HTC’s Scribe technology giving you the power to scribble around the 7.0″ display despite of the part of the interface you are hovering about. The hTC is not at all an android powerhouse but still carries out almost all the daily tasks put in front of it, without putting a sweat on its face.

Here we are going to help you out with the installation of the latest from the developer’s land, CM10 Jelly Bean on you HTC Flyer tablet.
