This is an unofficial build of CyanogenMod 10 for the new Jelly Bean bootloader for the Transformer Prime.
As a start, the build dated Oct 13 2012 has the new bootloader and TWRP 2.3 for JB within the ROM so it can be installed on any device with a custom recovery, even if the device has the ICS bootloader or the TF300 bootloader... All future releases will not have the new bootloader or TWRP as part of the ROM.
For the most case, this ROM uses the official commits to the CyanogenMod 10 tree. The exceptions are the TF201 device specifics. Unlike the official CyanogenMod 10 builds, this ROM uses the new 3.1 Jelly Bean kernel and the new Jelly Bean drivers and proprietary files. I will stop this project once this becomes part of the official CM10. I will not release builds daily, rather ever 2-3 days.
Highlights of this ROM:
1) Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 JZO54K
2) Built using the latest CM10 changes as of 30 Oct 2012 10:00AM Pacific Time (GitHub / Gerrit)
3) Uses the latest AndroidRoot TF201 device tree with the Jelly Bean 10.4.2.15 kernel (3.1) and proprietary files & drivers with some changes and additions by me (GitHub)
4) Needs the new Jelly Bean 10.4.2.15 bootloader [IMPORTANT: Flashing over an incorrect bootloader can permanently brick you device. The Oct 13 2012 build includes the bootloader upgrade and can be flashed over any ROM/bootloader]
5) HDMI audio/video streaming and bluetooth audio streaming (AVRCP 1.3 ready)
6) Camera and microphone
7) 4-way reboot menu (Reboot, Recovery, Fastboot & APX)
8) Includes all the files and changes need for the Google Widevine DRM [untested!!]
9) CIFS and NTFS (read-only) support
10) Fully functional dock and dock battery display
11) Removed CMUpdater
12) All other features of CyanogenMod 10 and Jelly Bean (full hardware acceleration, Project Butter, HD video, customisable notification toggles & many more)
13) Some custom addons and feature ports by me (see the individual build changelogs)...
New in Oct 30 2012 build:
1) Several device overlay updates and cleanups (bunch of updates for JB)
2) Auto-brightness turned off by default
3) Expanded desktop (hide/show Combined/Status Bar using the Power menu)
4) Cleaned-up & updated release tools script (this creates the zip packages)
5) Set correct permission for BtService.sh (Bluetooth DUN) script
6) Force NV_FPS_LIMIT to 60 for all performance modes
7) Device Advanced setting menu to set Asus performance modes (defaulted to Balanced). This is not for the CPU speed, rather the Tegra performance setting (cpuX.sh like functionality)
8) Fixed Torch
9) Updated device power profile based on official JB release
Highlights of the Google Apps Pack:
1) Uses the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 JZO54K Google Apps & Services from the Nexus 7 factory image
2) Includes the latest Play Store 3.9.16
3) Does not include any Google Apps available via the Play Store (GMail, Books, Google Now, etc. are not included)
1) Key layouts for certain regional keyboard may not work
2) Auto-brightness is funky [Use the app Lux for auto-brightness]
3) NTFS support is read-only
4) exFAT is not yet supported
1) Wipe data/factory reset if coming from another ROM (including the official CM10 nightlies)
2) Wipe cache/dalvik cache for every update
3) After flashing a build, it is a good idea to wait for 5-10 mins after bootup to allows everything to settle in
4) If you have not upgraded to the official Jelly Bean ROM yet, you will need to flash the Oct 13 2012 build or a stock JB ROM first to upgrade your bootloader, and then you may flash the latest build here.
5) Once you upgrade to this ROM, you will no longer be able to use the official CM10 nightlies till the new Jelly Bean changes are merged
6) Make sure you use a recovery compatible with the new Jelly Bean bootloader after flashing this ROM.
The usual 9 yards:
1) Have you read this post properly. Read it again!!
2) You need to have an unlocked bootloader
3) You need to have a custom recovery (CWM or TWRP)
4) It is a good idea to have enabled nvFlash (thanks to AndroidRoot) so that you can recover from almost any brick
5) Neither I, nor the CyanogenMod team, nor the AndroidRoot team take any responsibility if anythings goes wrong. Use at your own risk
6) Always make sure you create nandroid backups regularly
New in Oct 26 2012 build:
1) BFQ v5 I/O scheduler [Ported from CM10 Nexus 7 kernel]
2) Low memory killer tweaks (memory compaction) [Ported from CM10 Nexus 7 kernel]
New in Oct 21 2012 build:
1) Revert/disable nVidia CPU Quiet [It restricts the CPU to 1.3 GHz]
2) Standardise CPU frequency tables' values.
3) Disable Asus system mode CPU speed settings [It only allows 3 max CPU speeds and doesn't play well with the CM kernel]
4) Remove prebuilt power HAL
New in Oct 17 2012 build:
1) Fixed model number (Shows Transformer Prime TF201, not EeePad)
2) Enabled KSM (Kernel SamePage Merging) support (Go to Settings > Performance > Memory management to enable/disable)
3) Enabled zRam/Compcache support (Go to Settings > Performance > Memory management to enable/disable)
4) Added LCD density property to build.prop (fixes YouTube app display and may fix some Play Store compatibility)
5) Added Extended Desktop toggle (show hide Combined bar/status bar) [Cherry pick from CM gerrit]
6) Miscellaneous kernel cleanups
Due to the relatively open nature of Android, it’s almost a given that there are … more
