KatKiss ROM - Asus TF101
JellyBean 4.2.2





This rom is based onto TeamEOS4 with my own additions on top.
We shall see where it leads to in the future, but it will most likely stay close to EOS4 for the moment as we have reached a very good and stable status in the past months of work,
so we can build on that until the next Android version.

The main motto of the rom being Kiss. Even though the Meerkat could give you a kiss, it stands for Keeps it Sweet and Simple too
Which means that just like the other K.A.T stuff, the rom's main goal will be efficiency, speed/responsiveness,
while cutting out some of the bloat in the future too.


DOWNLOADS:
Please note that this version is for the TF101 model only.


ChangeLog: The main changes are posted there and are also available in the Settings=>ControlCenter menu => ChangeLog

Installation Notes:
These builds are designed to be installed from your favorite recovery. MAKE SURE TO INSTALL THE LATEST COMPATIBLE ANDROID 4.2 RECOVERY!
latest TWRP is recommended

Going to KatKiss4.2.x from a different rom:
  • Backup everything !
  • Go to recovery
  • Make a full wipe / factory reset
  • Format /system
  • Flash the rom
  • Flash optional kernel
  • Flash gapps
  • Wipe cache/dalvik
  • Reboot

Updating from KatKiss 4.2.x #XX to #YY:
You can usually skip the full wipe step.
If ever you encounter an issue make sure you make a full wipe first before reporting though.

Additional info & links
GPS:
if it is taking a long time to get a lock or no lock, follow this:

Install the latest K.A.T app

Then follow precisely this procedure:


1) Location Settings
- Go to Settings => Location => turn OFF Access to my location
- Turn Access to my location back ON
- Make sure you agree to let google access the location.
Now you should have :
- GPS satellites: checked
- Wifi & mobile networks location: checked

2) Launch the new K.A.T app
- make sure you grant it root access
- make sure you have internet access
- go to the install menu, Check the "Install GPS quicker fix + Assistance
- Click the Install button
- Make sure it says "Install Finished"

3) Reboot
4) Wait that it has finished booting and launching all the stuff you have starting at boot
5) Start your GPS app outside with a clear sky line, to speed things up stay in range of the wifi / internet connection.

Do not let the gps app loose focus when it is trying to get a fix.
Do not let your tablet sleep / turn off the screen either.


Doing that here, the first time and with a cold gps start, and even staying in my house,
I get a 6 sat fix within 30 seconds and 11 sat fix in 1min 15seconds.

From there subsequent fixes takes about 3 seconds to grab 7 sats and about 10 seconds to reach the 10-11 sat fix
(you still want to let it sit outside for a bit after the 1st fix, so that the ephemeris data gets consolidated and updated to help faster fix later on)




Google search:
If the version you're using is crashing when you open Google Now,
go to Settings => Language & Input => Voice Search
then uncheck Hotword Detection.

Hardware keyboard layouts
More languages have been added in the default asusec keyboard
Set the keyboard layout through Settings => Language & Input => asusec => setup keyboard layouts
These also allow live switching without reboot with ctrl + space

Glass effect:
If you want glass to work with Trebuchet, you need to deactivate the quick wallpaper rendering in Trebuchet settings though.

Storage (fstrim) and Database optimization:
open a terminal and run:
su
/etc/kat/optimizedb
/etc/kat/optimizestorage
Be warned that the optimize storage can take from a few minutes to hours.
But the speed / lag will be greatly improved afterward

Version #215 available
Version #215 available:

Download: KatKiss-4.2.2_215.zip
md5sum: 477782483338f948a2d22ca6d4c09e91
More information: http://public.timduru.org/Android/tf101/KatKiss/
KatKernel is not yet included in that first version, so you still need to flash it after the rom.

This version is an hybrid between EOS4 PreviewB202 / Nightly 120 and new stuff and shouldn't have the EOS4 #121 microsd bug.


Test & Report to confirm that we're back on track and then we can build up on top of that version


ChangeLog:
=7/11/13 - V215=
- Critical Security fix for Bug 8219321 (Android apk MasterKey exploit)
- Browser: Reorg of the pie control + add Pie Feature to go to Bottom/Top of page
- Include MediaScanner Filters by default (so you do not need to install them from the K.A.T app again after installing the rom)
- Rom versions change
- Deactivate GooManager versions to avoid notifications of flashing older EOS4 121
- Default Kernel interactive threshold decrease for quicker speed boost/responsiveness.
