Yes, we just got our own forums and YES it seems a bit pointless to be offering this up right away.

However, I've been reading up on ROM kitchens, etc, and I am *very* eager and excited to start playing with the newest ICS build for the Mediapad.

If anyone starts working on any CWM-9 based ROM, I would more than gladly be an active tester. My tablet currently acts as a daily Pandora-listening device, so I am more than willing to test nightly/bi-nightly/4x per day builds, whatever you request.

My tablet is at your command. Heck, if you need to remote into my PC to access the tablet, I can set up a dedicated computer connected to the Springboard, just for you.

Otherwise, I am also very much willing to temporarily donate/lend my device to a credible dev who would like to work on this.

Wouldn't the ICS build we're running already have this driver?

I'm working on a CM9 port now but it'll be my first ROM ever so it's slow going haha. It will happen though.

i think they're already on the MediaPad, but we can try this...
anybody can post a short list of steps, how to install it on the MediaPad?

or is it just as simple as extracting the zip to /system folder and modifying the build.prop?

i've checked the files on mediapad already:
- /system/etc/firmware -> has the "leia" and "yamato" files, but doesn't have the "a255" and "a300" files...
- /system/lib -> this folder doesn't exist at all

Yes, they are already there and they are more performance oriented than the genaral drivers (NenaMark2: 33.2 fps for the general driver vs. 37.9 for the one already there). Tried it by adb pushing the new driver files to the mediapad.

€: /system/lib did not exist on your device? What firmware do you use?
