Tablet Mode for Galaxy Player 5 ICS ROMs - Supermaster34

I consider the galaxy player to be a sort of mini tablet, but so far most of the available roms use a Phone UI. The Phone UI is great, but the user experience can be enhanced with the addition of Tablet Mode. I know tablet mode has been applied to the Player 5 before, but on an old and buggy rom, so I decided to fiddle with a few bits and bobs and I managed to activate Tablet Mode. One of the best things about my MOD is the ability to apply the patch to any ICS rom. There may be a few UI bugs, but everything works as it should

Features:
  • Tablet Apps can be used
  • The Status Bar and Navigation Bar combine to form the Combined Bar
  • Landscape Lockscreen
  • Full Album Art displayed on Lockscreen
  • Apex launcher runs very smoothly in tablet mode
  • Can be applied to any ICS rom (I think)

Installation Instructions

RemICS-UX v1.3.1+:
  1. Install the latest version of RemICS-UX if you don't already have it installed
  2. Flash the RemICS-UX tablet mode zip file in recovery. No need to wipe anything, just flash it
  3. Boot into the rom and download LCD Density Modder (or similar) and set the DPI to 128 or lower, but not below 120, and reboot
  4. Read my Tips for Tablet Mode here

CM9:
  1. Flash a CM9 rom if you do not already have one installed
  2. Boot into recovery and flash the CM9 mod
  3. Boot into the ROM and use LCD Density Changer (or similar) and set the DPI to 128 or below, but not lower than 120 and reboot
  4. Read my Tips for Tablet Mode here

AOKP:
  1. Flash an AOKP rom if you aren't already running one and boot into it.
  2. Go to Settings > ROM Control > Navigation Bar and enable the nav bar.
  3. Reboot into recovery and flash the AOKP mod
  4. Boot into the ROM and go to Settings > ROM Control > General UI > LCD Density and follow the steps.
  5. In step 5, scroll to the bottom on the list and select custom and set the DPI to 128 or less, but not less than 120
  6. Reboot
  7. Read my Tips for Tablet Mode here

Tablet mode can be entered by changing the DPI of the device to 128 or less, but putting it below 120 causes bootloops. I am still testing my mod, but it appears to work on any ICS rom for the player 5. All you have to do is flash the zip file in recovery over the rom you want to apply it to. No wipes required and setting the DPI above 128 returns the player to Phone UI

Tested to work on:
  • RemICS-UX v1.3.1 (Maybe v1.3.0) - Use the RemICS-UX version of the mod
  • Latest CM9 rom by me - Use the CM9 version of the mod
  • ICS Crumble v1.6 - Use the AOKP version of the mod

Untested but should work on:
  • Any CM9 based rom
  • Any AOKP based rom

Which rom? RemICS-UX or CM9? I tried it just now on RemICS-UX v1.3.1 and it worked. Try turning off HD video or wiping cache and dalvik cache in recovery

It does work for RemICS-UX v1.3.1 but the touchwiz launcher doesn't work so I included apex launcher. Everything else works fine.

The MOD doesn't work perfectly with AOKP roms so I'm currently optimising the MOD for AOKP. Currently the MOD only works perfectly with RemICS-UX because I've modified some files in its system, but once I remake the MOD for stock CM9 and stock AOKP it should work on every rom

You can set the DPI to anything between 120 and 128 inclusive. You can also use any launcher which can handle tablet mode. Currently I think Apex handles it the best so that's why I included it in the mod

OK for a short term fix you should move all of your apps on your SD card to the internal storage using titanium backup.

Which ROM did you apply the mod to?

Also are you sure it was caused by this mod? If it was I'll be able to fix it soon
