Tablet [ROM][LINARO][29/09/13][4.3]-SentinelROM v5.00-CM10.2 Source - Fast, Stable[GPL]





Welcome to SentinelROM for Nexus 10. Based on CM10.2. Android 4.3



This ROM is based on CyanogenMod 10.2 with all the features you get in a CM10.2 ROM, plus the following features.
  • Compiled with Linaro toolchain for enhanced performance.
  • Aroma Installer for additional tweaks and options
  • Zip Aligned
  • Compiled from latest CyanogenMod 10.2 source
  • Improved Web Browsing performance
  • Improved 3D gaming performance
  • Improved battery life
  • Additional theming and UI customisation
  • FAST support via this page and our Facebook Page
________________________




This ROM has been built to enhance the CyanogenMod 10.2 experience, with faster gaming and web browsing performance (no choppyness in Chrome too!).

Countless hours have been spent making tweaks to settings to squeeze the most performance I can find out of this ROM while still providing excellent battery life and without the dangers of overclocking and kernel level tweaking.

I compile this ROM and Kernel from the latest CyanogenMod source code, add my various tweaks and adjustments, then test for stability, so you get all the benefits of CyanogenMod 10.2, plus my tweaks and extras, all without the instability and inconvenience of flashing CyanogenMod nightlies (which are not designed specifically for the Nexus 10 like my ROM is.

The kernel source is available from the CyanogenMod's GitHub.

None that I am aware of. Please report any issues in this thread or on the Facebook page.

Note: On CM10.1 ROMs, to access the internal SD card on your device via USB on your PC, please go to "Settings" - "About Tablet" and tap on "Build Number" repeatedly to unlock "Developer Options". Now go to "Developer Options" and enable "Android Debugging".

________________________



If installing for the first time:

To install this ROM you will need to have an unlocked bootloader and a custom Recovery such as TWRP or ClockWorkMod installed (personally I recommend TWRP, I have had issues with restoring backups using CWM). If you haven't yet unlocked your bootloader and installed a custom recovery, I recommend downloading and installing the Nexus 10 Toolkit.
  1. Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
  2. Boot into your custom recovery
  3. Back up your stock ROM
  4. Factory Reset and wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
  5. Wipe System Partition
  6. Install the ROM
  7. Install GAPPS
  8. Reboot. First boot can take up to 5 minutes.

Important: CyanogenMod statics is switched off by default in this ROM. After installation you will be asked if you want to turn it on, please leave it off.

Note: Use of titanium backup to restore apps and data from another ROM is not recommended, and is the source of 90% of user issues, especially when it comes to battery life. Do so at your own risk.



You may flash other kernels as you wish via recovery. Remember to also flash the correct libraries for any 3rd party kernels.Instructions will be given by the Kernel author. NOTE: Updating the ROM via OTA will also overwrite any custom Kernels you have installed.

  • Thanks very much to all those who have answered my questions through the process of creating my own ROM, you know who you are.
  • CyanogenMod for their outstanding work. Full credit to them for the bulk of this ROM.
  • The Linaro team for their amazing toolchain.

GAPPS

MD5Sum: check the md5 of the files before flashing it

Other Kernels
For extreme performance, give KTManta Kernel by ktoonsez a go. It improves gaming performance significantly, but your device will get quite hot.
I'm going to do some more testing and may include it in later builds.

NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, the following mods are developed by SentinelROM users and therefore I can only offer limited support for problems caused by using them.

Tablet UI for SentinelROM v4.70 - Kindly donated by SentinelROM user brGabriel - Flash via Recovery. To restore to stock, reflash SentinelROM and wipe cache.

I hope you enjoy my ROM. If you do, please consider a donation to the CyanogenMod team. If you really like my build, please consider a donation to me as well. Donations go towards flowers for my wife so she lets me keep developing, and of course, additional devices so I can add to my list of supported devices.

As always, you flash my ROM at your own risk. By unlocking your bootloader and flashing any custom ROM, you are potentially voiding your warranty. I'm in no way responsible for any damage to your device caused by flashing this ROM or any other tweaks/mods discussed in the following posts.

I spent 4 hours yesterday trying to get it working and had to give up for this build. I could do it for AOSP but can't get it to work on CM10 base. Ill keep trying though.

I looked at Tablet UI as an option, but the consensus is that it's depreciated and support will become less and less over time, so I decided to leave it out with this ROM.

What does he mean by that is he talking about the action bar or the menu button that appears on the right?

Anyhow I had an idea that maybe I could work on some modifications that I would like on this ROM without having to ask you for it, but I am very new at it and all of the guides I have found are either out of date or are poorly written so I didn't understand how to do it. Do you think you could direct me in the right direction to get started? I would really appreciate it, thank you very much.

Yeah he means moving the navigation bar at the bottom so that the Back, Home and Running buttons are off to the left hand side.

I figured out how to move them and it works perfectly in SentinelROM AOSP, but it seems that CM10.1 is using some weird scaling in the systemUI to fit the large screen of the N10. Even when I modify the XML to adjust the alignment to the far left, it sits about 3 quarters of the way across. From what I can tell, as far as the systemUI knows, this is the edge of the screen and the rest of the area is deadzone. I'll spend some more time later in the week working on it.

Anyone else is always welcome to make mods and tweaks (anything that works with this ROM should also work with other CM10 based ROMS). I welcome and encourage it in the spirit of open source! Hey this whole ROM is pretty much a CyanogenMod Kang.

You just need to package them up as flash-able zips that can be flashed via recovery. If I like them, I'll include them in future builds with your permission

To make mods you will need 7-ZIP, Notepad++ and APKTool. You just need to extract the APK you want to edit using APKTool, then make your modifications using Notepad++, then compile using APKTool and merge your modded resources with the original APK in 7-Zip. Then you just need to push the modified APK to your device (I use Android Commander for that). Compiling into a flash-able zip is a little more tricky but there are plenty of guides around.
