This is the Q&A thread for my Ganbarou ROM for GT-P7500, GT-P7501, GT-P7510 and GT-P7511 tablets, aka Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 10.1N.

V3.12 is ready. Sorry for the mess with 3.11. If you didn't upgrade from an older version, please skip 3.11. I fixed the missing TabletUI switch, made GPS working again and updated to latest CM10.1 sources.

This ROM is my first trial to build a Android 4.2.1 ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
It is based on CyanogenMod 10.1 but flavored with my small own changes as usual.
GApps for JB 4.2 is included in the ROM.
Quote:

FLASH THIS ROM ON YOUR OWN RISK! YOUR WARRANTY WILL BE GONE AFTER YOU FLASHED THIS ROM.
ONLY THE ROM FOR THE GALAXY TAB 10.1 3G (GT-P7500) IS TESTED BY ME. THE OTHER ROM VERSIONS ARE NOT TESTED.

Quote:

Please check the XDA discussion thread for CM10.1 for additional requirements to use this ROM. Check there if you come from a ICS ROM, as you will need a new bootloader.

IMPORTANT:
Quote:

IF YOU ARE NOT COMING FROM CM10.1 OR A GANBAROU 3.x ROM YOU NEED A FULL WIPE BEFORE INSTALLING THIS ROM!
BACKUP YOUR SD-CARD! THE WAY THE SD-CARD IS MOUNTED HAS CHANGED!

Reported bugs:
Quote:

Gmail crash after flashing the ROM:
Update of Gmail from Google market should fix the problem.
Powerwidget in notification screen is not changeable.

Tips:
Quote:

After flashing the tablet seems not to boot:
Give it time. I mean a long time!!! It will boot. First time I flashed this ROM I thought it would not work, but it just takes a long time to boot. The bootanimation will be seen only short time, then the screen turns black. Just wait until the setup screen pops up. But it should take longer than 5 minutes. If the bootanimation is shown for a long time and the tablet does not boot, try
1) reflash the ROM
2) check that the zip file was not damaged during download (you can find the md5 checksums for all ROMs on my homepage)

How to get Developer options in Settings:
Click on Build number several times until it says that you are a developer

How to enable MTP:
Settings->Storage->Menu (3 dots top right)->USB computer connection->Tick Media device (MTP)

Organisation SD-card:
The original content of your SD-card is now in sdcard0/0
This is related to users management and I cannot change it.

LongPress on home button, then move finger up opens Quick Launch (CM10.1 feature):
Access QuickLaunch when the navigation bar is not centered:
First train your thumb to access the QuickLaunch panel with the navigation bar centered. Press the home button, then move your thumb up and the Quick Launch will appear. After you got used to it move your Navigation Bar to the left or right (whatever you prefer). Press the home button and move your finger up. Then press again just above the Samsung logo in the middle and the Quick Launch will appear. Still working on a better solution.

Show Pie-chart control when in expanded desktop mode:
First you have to setup the position of the pie-chart navigation in settings and activated the expanded desktop. After activating you move your finger slowly from the outside of the screen into the screen to activate the pie chart (works on all 4 sides). Just try it and be patient to get used to it!

SD-card messed up?
Files suddenly in a sub-folder?
Recovery cannot find backups or ROMS anymore?

That is a problem I run into myself after the first trials with my new ROM. What I found is that flashing the latest CWM or TWRP recovery solved the problem without copying around all the files on the internal SDcard.

Try to get the latest CWM or TWRP recovery and flash it.

TWRP V2.4 can be found in A1 kernel thread.
A link to the latest CWM recovery can be found in the CM10.1 nightly thread. Look for CWM:

The problem seems to be linked to the Gapps version. At least I read this in some threads.
Try to install the wingray Gapps which can be found somewhere here in XDA. I am using Smart Keyboard and do not have the problem with it. It seems to happen only with the Android keyboard.

I need to check which is the latest well working Gapps package and change to it.

V3.03 is ready for download!
This version took some time. Android and CM10.1 sources moved on to Android version 4.2.2. Still not final, still glitches in the ROM. Beside of the new Android version I enabled MTP connection now by default, made Developer options and Performance tabs in Settings are now visible by default and removed many developer options that are not important for most users.

Ouch, that one went through testing undetected. Sorry for it. Will check what the reason is. On 3.02. it was working.

Thanks for the replay. Now that I m forced to use the phone UI, I m starting to like it, the notification bar at the top and it's style it's not bad at all.
