Angry [ROM]★●[TF300T/G/L/201/301][CROMi-X 5.4][ROM2SD | ODEX/DEODEX 10.6.1.27.5][02/22]●★

THIS ROM IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE ASUS PAD TF300T & TF300TG, PRIME TF201 AND THE ME301T PAD SMART 10

YOU MUST BE ON JB 4.2.1 WITH THE ASUS STOCK BOOTLOADER 10.6.1.8 AND TWRP patched 2.4.4.0 or BOOTLOADER 10.6.1.15.3, 10.6.1.27.1, 10.6.1.27.5 or 10.6.2.x and TWRP 2.5.0.0 BEFORE FLASHING THIS. THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS IS TO FLASH THE STOCK ASUS 10.6.1.27.5 or 10.6.2.x FIRMWARE.

Please go to the following thread to see instructions on how to meet these requirements:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2187982


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I recommend you do a full wipe if coming from another ROM. Choose Wipe – Factory in TWRP. Do not do a full wipe from the bootloader.

You can restore data from Titanium Backups but please do not restore system data or apps from a previous version or another ROM if you want a nice clean smooth upgrade experience.

Don't forget to do a Nandroid Backup first and give the ROM 10 mins to stabilise!

INSTALLING CROMi-X
If you followed the appropriate steps for your scenario above, you now have a compatible bootloader installed and a custom recovery such as TWRP.

Steps

1. Download the appropriate ROM package below and save to your internal or external SD Card. Do not unzip the file. Join the debate about which manner of packaging files is better (ODEX or DEODEX) or just use DEODEX since it allows for a bit more customization possibilities. ODEX may boot slightly faster but then again, it may only boot slightly faster the first time. Google ODEX vs DEODEX if you really want to understand.

About Fsync

Explanation by _that:

About the Experimental Features

During the install some features are listed as EXPERIMENTAL. I have left them as an option so you can play and enjoy debugging Please let me know if you used the experimental features like Extreme Tweaks, Cache2SD, Overvolting, Undervolting. if you want a stable smooth experience flash _that's kernel, with fsync disabled and one of the normal WW or US editions.

If you are a speed freak and don't mind the odd bug go for hunds with experimental tweaks, software rendering disabled and GPU OC, CPU OV and GPU UV.

Cache2SD is very experimental and may cause other issues so I'll leave that one up to you

================================================== ================================================

Various Kernel Benchmarks

Right benchmarks with various kernel options:

All were taken on CROMi-X 5.1 Odex with default options at 240dpi unless otherwise stated (fsync off / on). I've used quadrant as most people understand the results - I know it's not the best and I did 3 tests each time and took the 3rd result.

Stock - fsync on - 5672


_that v4 - fsync off - 5981


_that v4 - fsync on + data2sd - 5745


_thatv5 - fsync on - 6267


_that v5 - fsync off - 6414


_that v5 - fsync on + data2sd - 6143


Hunds + ET - fsync on - 6684


Hunds + ET - fsync off - 7245


Hunds + ET - fsync on + data2sd - 6725


Hunds - fsync off - 6805


Hunds - fsync on +data2sd - 6597


So data2sd doesn't really offer that much if you keep fsync on. It does feel faster when loading large games and files. The issue is it is a bit more unstable and easier to corrupt the data partition if you have fsync off. Same risk with normal data I suppose but less likely to corrupt due to less sponteneous reboots.

Is data2sd worth it? Only if you want to use your tablet whilst downloading large files or play store updates or you are prone to corruption with fsync off. Otherwise you can achieve at least the same speed with fsync off although with a risk to corrupt your data partition eventually.

================================================== ================================================

Using GParted to setup a micro SD for ROM2SD support

First and foremost - DO NOT USE MINI TOOL!

Formatting a micro sd card for ROM2SD

We will be using a GParted Live boot USB and a FAST good quality micro sd like a Sandisk or Samsung Class 10 - SDHC/SDXC UHS-1 card with read speed of at least 20MB/S. If you have a cheap chinese eBay card don't bother - they are not good enough.

You will also need a USB Stick with at least 1GB size. Note this process formats the USB disk so don't keep any important files on it. It will also wipe your micro sd so make sure you are prepared.

1. Go to the link below and download the GParted Live CD/USB/HD/PXE Bootable Image and save it somewhere you remember
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/download.php
2. Download Linux Live USB Creator and install it
http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

3. Fire up LiLi USB Creator:
a. Choose your USB key - I,e, the drive letter for your USB (not sd card)
b. Choose your GParted iso image for the source
c. Choose the check box to Format Key in FAT32 and hide files
d. Click the lightning bolt to create

4. Now you have a bootable disk you need to boot from it. You may need to alter you BIOS Settings on your PC to boot from a USB Stick but mine did it without messing.
5. Insert your micro SD card into an SD Card adapter and insert into PC
6. Boot into GParted

7. Choose Gparted Live <Enter>
8. Don’t touch keymap <Enter>
9. Languge <Enter>
10. Start Gparted Automatically
11. Change device to your micro sd )it will default to you hard disk - hda– mine is /dev/sdc



12. Delete all existing partitions

For a 64GB card: (resize as needed but /system doesn't need to be bigger than 1GB)
13. Create new, always select primary: do this 3 times.
14. FAT 32 : Size 16GB – this will be /dev/sdc1 in gparted and will be your sdcard for storage in Android
15. EXT4 : Size 42GB – this will be /dev/sdc2 in gparted and will be your /data partition in Android
16. EXT4 : Size 1GB – this will be /dev/sdc3 in gparted and will be your /system partition in Android



Apply, wait until it finishes and then reboot. Remember to remove the usb stick

*Images stolen from elsewhere as I couldn’t get it to save mine

Now you are ready to install ROM2SD. Note if you want to use DATA2SD then only do 2 partitions 1x FAT32 and 1x larger EXT4

Then reinstall CROMi-X but this time choose the ROM2SD option (currently option 3 on the kernel page)

It's never happened to me once. Which version of TWRP?

BTW try hitting where the back button is as I have heard this might push it along......
