Some of you may know me from my work on the at&t Galaxy Note 1 as well as the at&t galaxy S3. I am Restl3ss, and my usual goal thus far has been to create a stock based TW ROM that didn't suck complete *insert another word for donkey that would get bleeped out by xda censors*.(and no, that's not a shot at other dev's, that's a shot at Samsung, to clarify before the hate train flows) This is no exception. This ROM started as a port of my latest galaxy S3 Pimpdroid build (in the sense that I made the exact same modifications, Obviously I had to use a different base), but has long since become its own entity. I was lucky enough to receive the tab 3 10.1 as a Christmas present and was quite happy with the overall device, But rather disappointed with the stock ROM. I didn't think it was possible but the tablet version of touchwiz actually looks worse than the phone version, and that's saying a lot. I was even more disappointed with the lack of custom ROMs for this device. So, without further ranting, I present Pimpdroid 3.0 beta for the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Guaranteed at least one "awwww yeah son" per flash.


Features:
-Busybox pre-installed
- debloated
-deodexed
- google experience launcher
-xperia launcher 3.0
-some kitkat stock apps
-aptoide pre-installed
-apollo music player
-rooted (obviously)
-PimpdroidUX ( looks waaaaaaaay better than the crappy touchwiz natureUX)
-some wifi speed tweaks
-stability tweaks
-system wide speed tweaks
-tweaked up system sounds, much less of an ear-sore
-AOSP-esque notification sounds
-xposed + wanam, and loser modules
-pretty well no S-crap left on, if there's anything I've missed let me know so I can kill it.
-Pie controls (2.x.x only)
-Hacker's keyboard, google keyboard, and samsung keyboard installed
-OPKG package manager (command line, similar to apt.)
-GNU nano installed (command line)
-OpenSSH installed (command line)
-Enhanced OpenSSL implementation
-Integrated BASH shell(command line, obviously. Invoke by typing bash)
-curl support (command line)
-other standard linux utilities including mosh and strace
-KitKat External SDcard read/write fix baked in
>*the following features are toggled in the wanam xposed module*
-adjustable notification typeface
-status bar clock adjustable clock size, AM/PM style, and position
-status bar date on/off
-circleMOD battery
- adjustable system notifications
-adjustable quick tiles settings
-enable lockscreen rotation
-hide battery full notification
-adjustable system sounds
-much heavier systemUI theming
-4 way reboot menu
-disable / enable tethering provisions
-adjustable status bar color
>*the following features are enabled though the loser xposed module*
-volume button music controls
-double tap home button for google voice search
>other modules
-kitkat toast notifications
-omnirom multi-window support
-customizable progress bars

Bugs:
- 3.0 BETA 4 is currently broken for an unknown reason. For now grab BETA 3 from the second post.


Some notes:

-One thing to keep in mind is that I only have the WIFI model of the tab3 10.1. The LTE and 3G rom variants are blind builds; IE I have no way to test them.

- Also keep in mind that, though I may be open to FEATURE requests / ideas, I take absolutely NO theme requests. The theme is currently, and will always be, designed to my specifications.

- And lastly, I HAVE NO TIME FOR DRAMA. Nobody is forcing you to use this ROM, if you don't like it flash something else.


With that being said, download links, instructions, and change-log are below. Have fun and happy flashing!



Flashing instructions:
HIGHLY recommend doing this from one of @moonbutt74 's recoveries. Specifically, philz, but any of them should suffice.

1. BACK UP YOUR CURRENT ROM.
2. Wipe data, system, cache, and dalvik cache
3. Flash ROM.
4. Reboot. Wait 10 minutes before doing anything.
5. Enjoy!





If you dirty flash expect some apps to FC. These usually wont be system apps, so fixing the FC is as simple as reinstalling via google play. (example: terminal emulator). If nonsensical isn't working for you, create a backup of the apk, uninstall, reinstall. (nonsensical crash is only a problem on 2.x.x)


Downloads:
kitkat:
P5210 (WiFi) 20141021 build: 3.0 BETA 4
P5200 (3G) 20141021 build: 3.0 BETA 4
P5220 (LTE) 20141021 build: 3.0 BETA 4
*Note* this is a beta build. If you have any problems with root, flash UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.02.zip from here.



If you'd rather the AOSP KitKat camera/gallery apps instead of the Samsung ones, flash this. (This WILL break lockscreen wallpaper) Tab-Kitkat Camera / Gallery

If you're feeling brave and want to try the modified framework res / twframework-res that was reverted in the 20140124 build, flash this. There is a 50/50 chance it will cause a bootloop, and this is most definitely NOT SUPPORTED, so do not come with issues if you've flashed this. You've been warned. Frameworkmod ***2.X.X ONLY**

If you want to attempt to remove the Samsung keyboard, flash this. *MUST have another keyboard installed first*

On using OPKG:
data/local/bin needs to be in your path of execution for anything you install to work. To do that, once terminal is open, type
$ PATH=/data/local/bin:$PATH
Once that's done, you need to run opkg update to get the list of available packages. after that, opkg install will install whatever it is you want. For example, "opkg install dropbear". On first run, I recommend typing "opkg install opkg" to install opkg over itself so it knows what version it's running. Note that you’ll have to set your path to /data/local/bin every time you start terminal to use anything you’ve installed via opkg. To show you what packages are available, type "opkg list".




Change-log:
3.0-4 beta 20141021
-Kitkat support for P5220!
-added Wanam xposed (was supposed to be there before, my bad)
-added kitkat extSd read/write fix (big thanks to @blackcanopy)
*Terminal:
-Added GNU Nano 2.2.6 (invoke with nano command like on desktop)
-Added BASH (invoke by typing bash in terminal. Much better shell than sh)
-Added OpenSSH (invoke with ssh command in terminal)
-Added curl
-Added strace
-Added mosh
-Better OpenSSL implementation
-Added update-alternatives command
-*Added OPKG package manager! (it’s like apt on linux)*
To use: Open terminal, get root, and type
$ PATH=/data/local/bin:$PATH
then type
$ opkg update
You can now install some packages! to see what’s available, type
$ opkg list
and to install a package, type
$ opkg install packagename

Note that you’ll have to set your path to /data/local/bin every time you start terminal to use anything you’ve installed via opkg.

I hear you loud and clear, rebuilding and reuploading as we speak. It's a problem with the updater-script, not the rom itself
