[ROM][GT-P7500] CM9 KANG (ICS Preview) (03/25/2012)
this is a CM9 KANG
built for the GT-P7500 (3G)
What does KANG mean, I hear you asking? It means I'm not the one responsible for the code behind this ROM, it's all CyanogenMod/pershoot/isimobile (as noted below).
I "only" compiled it and wrote this nice post, sharing my KANG along the way. Hope you will like it!
All credits to the CyanogenMod
team and Pershoot
, they're the real heroes.
Credits to isimobile
as well for the 3G stuff. All you guys are great, keep up the awesomeness!
Needless to say, don't bug the CyanogenMod team about bugs (pun intended).
Also, neither I nor CM will be held responsible if your Tab explodes (or any other unfortunate side effect).
That being said, it should work beautifully
What is working:
- WiFi tethering
- HW video decoding
- Quite a lot more
- For auto-brightness to work, lock/unlock the screen once.
- Searching for network providers doesn't work.
How to install:
Do a FULL WIPE/FACTORY RESET & WIPE CACHE in CWM if coming from another ROM!
If coming from any previous version of this ROM, full wipe/cache wipe shouldn't be necessary.
Then, flash in this order:
- Kernel modules (optional)
without rebooting between flashes.
To get 3G working, make sure you have the right APN with the right settings for your network provider selected.
For the most part this is autodetected but sometimes it's not detected properly.
Kernel modules are optional. If you want support for things like nfs, ps3 controllers etc... flash this. You will have to do the modprobing yourself (in a terminal window: first get root access with su, then modprobe <modulename-without-.ko>)
cifs.ko, ntfs.ko and tun.ko got moved into the ROM, no need for modules zip if you just want those.
To get your Tab to show up on your computer when connected via USB, goto Settings -> Storage -> click the three dots in the upper-right corner. Enable MTP or PTP.
Looking for a changelog? There's no changelog in the traditional sense but the latest merged changes can be seen here: http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#q,sta...branch:ics,n,z
(ignore all android_kernel_* and android_device_* projects) & https://github.com/pershoot/
Don't flash the kernel from Pershoots thread on this ROM. The latest kernel is included in this ROM already. The one in Pershoots thread is for Honeycomb.

- Voice search fix is now obsolete; upgrade gapps to a newer version instead
Kernel modules: GT-P7500-CM9-KANG-032512-maba-kernel-modules.zip - 6.7 MB
Download gapps from here
- Modules will be installed to /system/lib/modules, this will make modprobe find them properly
Download one of the newer gapps from that page (one of the gapps-ics-2012* files).
If doing an upgrade from an earlier version of gapps, be aware that upgrading gapps can make your tab unbootable. In this case you have to wipe data
Remember to make a backup before upgrading gapps just in case!
