I have a Newsmy NP-711 Android 2.1 tablet (terrible device, cannot recommend it to anyone), and I would like to install CyanogenMod on it.

On their page, they only have downloads for specific phone and tablet models. Is there no "minimum-build" that might work for non-listed devices? And how would I go about installing it?

Each build has drivers and other configuration elements specific to the device it targets, so I think the best you can really do would be to find a supported device that has similar hardware and pray (or port it yourself). That's my understanding, anyway. – eldarerathis Jan 19 '12 at 2:38
Any ideas what might be similar enough? – Thilo Jan 19 '12 at 3:26
I haven't a clue, really. I don't know anything about that device and I don't see a detailed spec sheet readily available. – eldarerathis Jan 19 '12 at 14:15

Nope. Mobile device drivers tend to be highly specific and there's no sort of defaults that will work across devices.
