Tablet [ROM] Unofficial Xylon Acclaim 2.1.1 [XYAOSP 4.2.2] [Nook Tablet][06MAR2013]

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICKED YOUR DEVICE.
Do research and reading if you are uncertain about this rom.
Do not PM me about the ROM.




WHAT IS IT?
Xylon is fully transformed distribution for Android Devices. It is designed to take full advantage of the device’s hardware and to provide the user pure Android experience.

The team is constantly working on making things better for the users and is happy to do so. We, the team, believe that for one to experience the pure taste of Android, he/she should be provided with something which is fast, intuitive and fluid – That’s where we come in – To provide you that.

Xylon started as a part of the Fruits & Veggies (FNV) project, a community ROM for the Galaxy Nexus and is now set up individually but its roots are based on FNV. Remicks, the founder of the FNV – inspired Daniel MM (Daxmax, founder of Xylon) to build something that would make users love what they use. In Daniel’s words – “This is an FNV based ROM, not FNV. But it has the winds of FNV, and it has more spacious features around the Android world.”

FEATURES:
Phone, Phablet, and Tablet UI
Customized Trebuchet Launcher
A lot of customization
Compiled with Google’s GCC 4.7 toolchain.
Linaro's compiler flags, O3 and Linaro string routine)
Kernel 3.0.66+
CWM 6.0.28
SuperSU

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

CHANGELOGS:
Look at XYAOSP source history for further changes, I will not post them.
02/27 – Repo synced, Initial build so there could be many bugs.
03/06 – Repo synced, kernel updated to 3.0.68 with new lowmemorykiller, font size increased a little in statusbar and Trebuchet, you can increase icon size to 120% in Trebuchet, gesture control in Trebuchet, new SuperUser (Koush's).

IMPORTANT NOTES: If you noticed null icons (no action icons) on the NavBar then you need to go to Settings > XY Tools > Navigation Bar > Menu (The vertical three dots) and Reset navbar icons/targets. For Navigation Ring to work, you need to clear data/data1 if you are on previous build.

TO DO LIST:
Lots of things

INSTRUCTIONS:
You need to do a full wipe (factory reset and wipe cache) if you are on a different ROM.
You need to wipe data1 and cache if you are SD booting.

You need to reinstall GAPPS after each ROM installation.
In the case you booted and all you see is black screen for a couple minutes, reboot to see if it's fix.
Initial booting can take several minutes.


Copy ROM/GAPPS into your Internal Storage on the device.
Reboot into recovery and install ROM from Internal Storage.
Full wipe can be done before or after installing ROM/GAPPS.


For SD booting, you need to make bootable SDCard first.
There are plenty of guides around.

Imma test it out also. Fantastic!!

---------- Post added at 02:46 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:45 AM ----------

After testing for about an hour, I can name a few problems I came across. First thing I noticed was the text and the icons. They were blurry and was an eye strain for me. Second minor problem but the Nav icons are smaller than on the other builds. I tried youtube and the first video I tried didnt work. Just show's play button.

Keep up the great work!!

I'll try this out, thanks.

Just to be clear, only the top link is for the actual rom right? The source links are just for reference? I assume.

Anyone try it yet?

The download link is under Internal ROM towards the middle of the post.

Used this ROM for a day, not bad.

Love the customization. To me though, it feels a little laggy. Also i have been having tons of trouble playing youtube videos on it, both on the website and through the app. they either dont start at all or crash (and i still hear the audio, lol). sometimes they simply wont load.

another observation is that pretty much all the 4.2 ROMs i've tried have pretty bad battery life when compared to 2.3. This is unfortunate but doesnt render the tablet unusable. I'd say if you charge it every night, it is fine. Leave the tablet overnight, without charging, with wifi on (although i know it goes into sleep) the battery drops from 85 to 35 in about 8-9 hours, which is awful.


Personally I am going back to PA 3.1 for now, but will check back if development progresses.

I tried out Xylon: for a first build it works really well and is very responsive (even though I am running it off SD). The couple of problems I ran across are the same one I recently encountered on some other ROMs: e.g., MX Player out-of-control when playing some video in HW mode (even when the Player is force-stopped the audio still keeps going), System-UI crashes when switching to Tablet-UI.

I think this ROM has a lot of potential and is really fun to use.

Whenever I adb devices from my PC to NT, it says devices offline, how can I connect my PC & NT? I found some other threat about new adb on 4.2.2 but they didn't help.
