Default [ROM] JB-SlateROM, a custom ROM for the HP Slate 7

Disclaimer: I am NOT responsible for any damage you do to your device.

Slate 7 Plus 4200 owners, I have a version of this ROM for you guys as well. You can find it here.

This is JB-SlateROM, a customized and debloated ROM for the HP Slate 7! This was designed for the 2800 but might work on the 4600 as I haven't tested since I don't have a Slate 7.

EDIT: Confirmed working on the 2800!

EDIT: NOT working of the 4600/4601. I'll recook the ROM for you guys when time permits.

Before you can install this ROM you need CWM on your device. Go here to get a build of ClockWorkMod v6.0.3.3.

FEATURES
Bloatware removed!
If the bloatware is still there, go to Settings, then Apps. Find the app and hit Disable Updates. That will delete the bloatware permanently. If it's still there after that I did not remove it. Tell me what you want removed in that case.
Original launcher has been hidden (saved as an .apk-hide file) in favor of Apex Launcher.
ES File Explorer added.
GravityBox Xposed module added.
App Settings Xposed module added.
Quick Boot added.
Xposed Installer added. (Not activated by default! Go into the installer, hit Framework, then hit Install/Update, then hit Soft Reboot or Reboot!)

Download
Current Device: Hisense Sero 7 Pro - Android 4.4.2 - PAC-ROM - Build 20140311

Current Development: CyanogenMod for the Slate 7 Plus, PAC-ROM for the Sero 7 Pro (M470BSA/USA Model)

Hi, I just tried to install this ROM (on Slate 7 4601), but in CWM, I get the 'Status 7' error.
before this, I see the line 'set_perm: some changes failed'. If that helps, I don't know?

Thanks.

The ROM must not be compatible with the 460x as I know it works fine with the 280x. I'll do a port of this with the 460x ROM and add it to the OP by next weekend at worst.

Which country is your Slate from? Status 7 means incompatible with device.
If you're really adventurous do a Nandroid then toggle signature verification then flash the ROM. Theoretically everything will work, but Nandroid just in case

Thank you for your reply.
My Slate is from Polish distribution channel. It's P/N is E0H92AA.

Signature verification is by default switched off in CWM. Looking at the detailed installation log I can see these lines before the Error 7 is reported:

minizip: Extracted file "/system/xbin/iwpriv"
minizip: Extracted file "/system/xbin/iwspy"
minizip: Extracted file "/system/xbin/su"
set_perm: chown of /system/vendor/app/ePrint.kpa to 0 0 failed: No such file or directory
set_perm: chown of /system/vendor/app/ePrint.kpa to 644 failed: No such file or directory
script aborted: set_perm: some changes failed
E:Error in /external_sd/_/JB-SlateROM.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

EDIT: adding original file /system/vendor/app/ePrint.kpa to your ROM allowed to install it within CWM 6.0.3.3.
But after reboot the device is now stuck at the HP logo

EDIT2: Suspecting the device incompatibility I have tested that the original firmware (taken from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2608181 ) runs without problems

It's because I removed bloatware and forgot to remove the references in the updater-script. Sorry about that, I'm VERY new to developing.
You should expect a updated ROM very soon. Probably tomorrow worst-case scenario.

Mmmh I tried to install your ROM but I got the same Error 7.
Then I proceeded to remove any reference into META-INF subfolders about ePrint.apk package and finally CWM installed it without hassle.

Nonetheless I got a stuck boot logo. I left it 5 minutes, but had no success, now I'm going back to my rooted 1.05.14 stock firmware.

I noticed a pair of things that may be useful to report:

- In /recovery folder there's a patch for the recovery. It may be useful to inhibit such patch, I added an exit 0 in /recovery/etc/install-recovery.sh just to be safe
- When you use CWM to do a factory reset (wipe data/factory reset), it doesn't wipe /system partition. You have to manually go in backup/restore -> format /system. Then you should wipe cache, maybe dalvik cache, and finally install the zip package.

Is this a bootloop or stuck at bootloader?
