Changelogs
AOSP Android 4.2.2 (JB) ROM:

Changelog BETA v2.0 (February 08 2014)

  • Fixed alot of issues on the core system
  • Internal Storage is now readable/writable
  • Emulated Storage is now readable/writable
  • App Instalation is Fixed
  • Update BusyBox
  • Update SuperSU
  • Update GravityBox; Xposed Framework (Fully Working since this is AOSP)
  • And several other Fixs

NOT Working:
  • Camera

Needs further work:
  • External Storage, will be available once you take your SDCard off, and insert again.BUT can cause random reboots.
  • BT, will give you FC when you turn on, but it works OK
  • You tell me




In addition to the ROM changelog:
  • External SDCard: as I said it can cause random reboots, also if you reboot the TAB it can cause bootloops,in this case just remove the SDCard and the TAB will boot just fine. Last case scenario, remove the SDCard and wipe dalvik
  • Benchmarks: Well its noticeable the increase in speed and less RAM usage on the AOSP Betas.
    Some guys are asking me why the Antutu scores are so similar with the stock Asus/And my custom ROM?
    Well you should check the ram usage/FPS between the ROMs And since the Aosp doesn't fully support the external SDCard, this will give about less 2k on Antutu scores (Storage IO / database IO)
    So... If you really want to compare Antutu scores, remove your External SDCard from the stock Asus/ V1.1r2 Roms.





How To Install:
On Carliv's recovery:
FULL WIPES required, so make an Backup First
> Install from SD Card

Info 2 Unlocking Bootloader and Flashing the Custom Recovery: PART #2

Unlocking Bootloader and Flashing the CWM Based Recovery: PART #2


Download From the "Download Section" the
Unlock_Bootloader install_Recovery.zip
Turn OFF the TAB

Do NOT Connect your TAB at the PC at this Stage



On the "Flasher" folder open the "Flash_tool.exe"




Then select "scatter loading" , go to the "Unlock_Bootloader install_Recovery" folder, and select the "MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt"



Then press "Download"




This Message will pop-up, press "Yes"

Now Connect the TAB to PC (USB), DONT Turn it ON, keep the TAB OFF

You will hear an sound, and the flash will start




In the end, IF all is done correctly, you will see this Picture.


Congrats you now have your TAB with an CWM Based Recovery (the Carliv Touch Recovery), and the Bootloader is Unlocked

Now all you need is, is to flash my Custom Rom






Navigation under recovery mode / Flashing the Rom:

Turn the TAB On, with the Power and Volume UP Keys (Keep The keys Pressed)

You will see the "Select Boot Mode" Menu (Check the picture)


Using the Volume UP Key, navigate to the "Recovery Mode", then Press the Volume Down Key to Select.

NOW, you will have acess to your Costum Recovery (The Recovery is Up side Down), this is NORMAL, and this happens on some new SoC's.
To Navigate on the Recovery you can use the Volume UP/Down Keys, OR You can use the Touch Buttons
Flashing The ROM:

Wipe Data / factory Reset
Wipe Cache
Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache

Install zip> Choose zip from sdcard

And just follow the on-screen instructions ...
System will reboot itself, when the instalation is completed

Don't worried, the first boot takes an little bit more time !













If you didnt copied the ROM to your SD Card:

Navigate on Recovery:
Mounts and storage>mount USB storage (now you can copy/paste the ROM to the SD card)

Or if you cant connect the phone to PC (Bad drivers, etc), use adb sideload:

 
How to use adb sideload:

You need to install Android SDK From Here



Example of where all the ADB files and where zip your pushing goes!!



1. Reboot into Recovery

2. in recovery, go to Install zip> Sideload

3. start Sideload

4. Open a CMD Prompt window and Change Directories to where your adb.exe is

5. type adb devices and it should show your device connected and say sideload

6. Your ZIP file should already be in your adb folder - See Example Below




9. Wait until it says 100% and reboot back into recovery to flash the ROM

10. If hitting power does not make the screen come one, type adb reboot recovery






This Recovery Supports the Aroma File Manager
Whats this? Check here


Download the Aroma File Manager
Then just copy the aroma .*zip into the "Clockworkmod" folder on the root of your SD Card
Download Aroma File Manager
