[ROM] [ICS|MTD] [GSM/CDMA] AOKP SGT7 - Milestone #6 (19/09/2012)
this rom is a BETA, it is NOT complete. it will definitely have bugs or things that don't work the way they should. FLASHING THIS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! i take no responsibility for any damage flashing this rom may cause to your tablet, computer, family members, pets, the environment, or the planet. remember, by downloading this rom and flashing it on your tablet, you accept that it may not work as it should.
Android Open Kang Project (AOKP)
for Samsung Galaxy Tab (GSM/CDMA)
this rom is based on the SGT7 ICS Te4m's device and vendor files, therefore anything not working in the CM9 build, won't work on this (and some things that do may not even work).
*** WARNING!!! ***
IF YOU ARE INSTALLING MILESTONE #5 OR ABOVE AND ARE COMING FROM AN MTD BASED ROM (TE4M CM9'S LATEST RELEASES) A FULL RE-PARTITION & RESTOCK WILL BE NEEDED TO MAKE THIS OR ANY OTHER NON-MTD ROM FUNCTION PROPERLY. YOU CAN BRICK YOUR TABLET BY MESSING WITH NON MTD ROMS ON A MTD FLASHED DEVICE
*** PLEASE READ THIS EXTRA WARNING ***
this rom is not official, it means that you wont find it on AOKP's download pages, you wont find it on their github, and you wont get any help asking them about this build. it is not supported by TeamKang (creators of AOKP), and may never be. do not attempt to download any of the roms on their website / forums and flash them on to a GSM GalaxyTab. downloading roms built for other devices will cause you great heartache and either turn your tablet into an expensive brick, or you will have to restock / reflash your tablet.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
after seeing that there was an official build of AOKP for the Verizon Tab, i decided to see if i could get it working on the GSM Galaxy Tab. Using the SGT7 TE4M's device/vendor and kernel for CM9 and AOKP source, i kept fiddling until it worked and have since kept adding extra features that are either specific to the SGT7, or things that compliment the SGT7; the result is this rom.
the build is named "AOKP SGT7" for 3 reasons:
- SGT7 stands for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7
- the SGT7 TE4M is one of the main reasons this rom exists, so it pays homage to their excellent work.
- most of the SGT7 TE4M's builds "extra" features (from their unofficial CM9 builds) are included in this release
this would not have been possible without the hard work by the SGT7 TE4M, and by TeamKang, i just changed a few things around to get it working and added features that the SGT7 TE4M have added to their CM9 builds along the way.
the main feature of AOKP is the Rom Control menu in settings, it allows you to tweak a lot of things to suit your needs, currently some dont work like they should on a tablet, but im sure they will be fixed in the future.
for more details on AOKP itself please stop by their RootzWiki thread (slightly outdated, but gives you a fair idea on what to look forward to) :: What is AOKP?! (and Features list)

- DSPManager included for tweaking of sound levels

first but foremost, if you are new to MTD, or just need to brush up on the information, then read --> THIS
IF YOU ARE ON A PREVIOUS BUILD OF AOKP (BELOW MILESTONE #5), OR ON A NON-MTD BASED ROM YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:
you need to restock and install a custom kernel with CWM 5+ before attempting to install the MTD based rom. restocking and installing Overcome (or at the very least the Overcome Kernel) on the P1000 is necessary to ensure that there are no problems with the conversion to MTD (restock ensures a clean system and partitions, flashing overcome's kernel gives us an updated CWM recovery which is needed to flash an MTD rom), and the last thing anyone wants is for their tab to fail and become bricked. read the link above to further explain MTD; what it is and what its benefits are. for the end user its not a big noticable change, but the possibilities it opens make it very worthwhile.
FOLLOW THE RESTOCKING STEPS FOR YOUR DEVICE, THEN FOLLOW THE "FOR ALL VARIANTS" STEPS BELOW
FOR P1000 (GSM) ONLY ::
follow Team Overcomes excellent installation guide --> HERE
all the way, then follow the below instructions:
FOR P1000L (GSM) ONLY ::
NEED TO FILL THIS IN! research first before flashing!!!
FOR P1000N (GSM) ONLY ::
NEED TO FILL THIS IN! research first before flashing!!!
FOR SCH-I800 / SPH-P100 (CDMA) ONLY ::
here is a good tutorial for going from stock to CM9 on the CDMA variants:
[HOLY CRAP][SPRINT P100] Stock to ICS - Complete Walkthrough
you don't need to install build 7 at the end of the above guide, but once you have done installing build #5, follow the guide below to get to AOKP SGT7.
*** NOTE *** build #40 / #38 has a problematic kernel (it causes the ENCRYPTION UNSUCCESSFUL message even though its not encrypted), until i release an updated kernel for CDMA variants - i suggest you download the stable p1c release of CM9 and extract the kernel out of the zip and flash it using Heimdall.
FOR ALL VARIANTS (OR FOR UPGRADING FROM MTD BASED ROMS) ::
- copy the rom onto your SD card or internal memory
- reboot in to ClockworkMod Recovery
- go to wipe menu
- select both "wipe data / factory reset" and "wipe dalvik cache" ** MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS BEFORE INSTALLING THE ROM **
- go to install -> choose from either internal / external sd card -> navigate and select the zip file
- after a few seconds, the tablet will reboot and go into a bootloop (you will see a CWM recovery screen flash up). hold down the vol up key and it should go back to recovery.
- again, go to install -> choose from either internal / external sd card -> navigate and select the zip file for the rom
- do the same as above for gapps (google apps)
*** WARNING ***
IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER YOU MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR TABLET!
i will not be held responsible for any damage you cause by not doing as you have been told. this is your only warning. any complaints about something going wrong because you haven't followed these to the letter WILL BE IGNORED.
if you are already on an MTD based rom, follow the instructions i gave under the FOR ALL VARIANTS section (you do not need to restock everytime you install a new MTD based rom), and you should be fine (it wont reboot/bootloop the first time you flash if you are already on MTD), you may not even need to wipe data / dalvik cache if its from a previous MTD build of AOKP, but if you are having problems, it is the first thing you should do.

first and foremost, without the use of SGT7 ICS Te4m's device, vendor and kernel this project would never have worked. their excellent work has gotten all of us ICS on the galaxy tab, and personally i am forever grateful for their work.
also without TeamKang, the people behind AOKP, this release would never have been possible. they have put in a massive amount of work to get this working for a lot of devices.
so without further ado, i thank the following:
THE SGT7 ICS/CM9 TE4M ::
special thanks goes out to HumberOS for helping this build work even smoother by building, compiling and releasing kernels for us. he is the SGT7 kernel wizard!
>> check out their CM9 development forum --> HERE
>> check out their github --> https://github.com/sgt7
TEAMKANG (THE CREATORS OF AOKP) ::
also i cant forget:
dizgustipated - even though SGT7 CM9 TE4M pushed me to my first sync/build, it was his AOSEP project that got me fiddling and fixing. he was also part of the reason why CM9/ICS is where it is at today. (sorry i forgot you!)
- one of the greatest custom rom teams ever. first rom i ever flashed on my first android phone, and the pioneers in multi handset / tablet development. without them ICS wouldn't have spread so far, and so quickly.
lexi1986 - attempting to provide hosting for the roms, thanks for the support when you gave it, and sorry this got so popular that it ended up hurting your hosting!
... and to all the people who use this and provide me feedback, thanks to you too!
