Vanilla Flavored AOSP (Gingerbread 2.3.4)
Gtablet AOSP is a project for pure vanilla Android with the Gtablet. It aims to be bare bones and as true to the AOSP code as possible. The Google AOSP code is modified as little as possible to provide functionality, and the ability to boot. It is stripped down for modification by the end user.
Using CyanogenMod device files, Pershoot's latest kernel (20110501, 188.8.131.52 with overclock ability), and some cherry picked cyanogenmod/nv-tegra files, a functional 'rom' and a github repo for this project has been created. As functionality has been added since inception, more pieces from Cyanogen are making there way in (browser fix and tweaks, some under the hood stuff, internal storage fixes, etc) to improve overall experience. All variances from original AOSP code is visible via the public git.
Huge props to the Gtablet and the Cyanogen development community. Without your work, this wouldn't be possible.
Thanks to EJHart for his direct assistance with getting this project up and running. Thanks to GoJimi for a bunch of tweaks. Thanks to Pershoot for the pimp kernel. And thanks to Bekit and the Harmony team, as well as the Cyanogenmod team... probably more...
To use this rom, you will use ClockwordMod to flash the zip file as you would any other rom. I have only used ClockworkMod .8 in my testing.
DISCLAIMER: I cannot be held liable for anything you do to your GTablet. Make sure you are comfortable with recovery tools, such as nvflash, before proceeding. Do not overclock unless you fully understand the risk, by default this rom won't overclock on it's own.
Download V1.03 (20110503)
V1.03 zip file -- http://www.mediafire.com/?aj69ubpkm3dfk3x
MD5 -- b621ca65ee3f91d9c2bf5e8ab9125edf
Overclock kernel -- The default max scaling clock is 1ghz. Therefore to overclock, you will need to change the speed via a third party app (like setcpu) or to do it via the shell. With SetCPU, using the automatic detection mode should work, and allow you to change min/max speed.
Gapps -- Current Gingerbread GAPPS will work -- http://goo-inside.me/google-apps/ (Latest is 20110307 Universal).
Most if not all the issues facing Cyanogen 7
External mounting now supports emmc and sdcard simultaneously.
FLAC decoding is included.
Minor upstream changes.
Fixed YouTube HQ video
Fixed h264/x264 video recognition
Fixed file downloads in browser
Latest GAPPS now work (no longer requires dated 20110120 build).
Forked skia from CM7 for performance enhancements
Previous builds see attached changelog.
Hardware acceleration for video and audio is a work in progress by the CM7 team You will find the hw acceleration works well with certain videos, including YouTube HQ. Video acceleration can be overwhelmed with larger files, overclocking the unit makes a noticeable difference.
BUILD YOUR OWN:
GitHub -- https://github.com/aosp-gtablet
Use this project from github to create your own image:
repo init -u git://github.com/aosp-gtablet/gtablet-aosp.git
The process for CM7 will work. Run extract-files.sh, run envsetup.sh, lunch, make -j[X] bacon. Anything more is outside the scope of this post.
** Additional notes -- GoJimi's Soft Buttons are available in the source code, but are disabled in this release.
I am a minimalist, and I know there are others. I hope others enjoy, and help make this a better project
Please let me know what bugs you find so I can work on them! Thanks.
