Hello, psquare.

Thanks. ROM is already great.
Very smooth. Only little flicker on touch compared to 4.01. Anything tweekd here?

Did little testing. CIFS works! (great). FlashPlayer and Youtube don't seem to be working. Other GAPPS are fine.

Is it too much of a pain to get bluetooth and 3G dongle to work? Can i help?

Thanks for testing!
For flash player..I made ​​a little mistake
I add version 10.2 but only >= 11.1 work with ICS!

Touch is real problem for this tablet, trembles especially when charging.
Maybe ADWLauncherEX work better but is paid software....
However, would be needed the kernel sources for solve many problems

bluetooth, 3g, ext4, gamepad will work in next releases

Yes, touch is terrible. It makes clicking on anything virtually impossible. Is there nothing that can be done without kernel source? It's much worse than any of the Gingerbread ROMs.

Yes is quite bad.
At first it seemed like a small issue, but the continued use makes it rather terrible.
I think that installing ADWLauncherEX makes it better in homescreen and app drawer but does not solve the touch problem inside the apps.

Another issue is that the UI isn't smooth, redraw look like about 10fps?
Also, how does one sign into a Google account? Is that option available when gapps are installed? I didn't get that far as the touch issue is a show-stopper for me and have gone back to the Cheeyee ROM, patch 8, which seems to be the smoothest of all the ROMs (so far).

That option is available after you install the gapps.
I also think that cheyee's patch8 ROM is the most smooth and has the most options (flash, bluetooth, 3g, wiimote, etc.)

Even thought, I am currently using the latest ICS. I personaly think that i can get more from the tablet with this rom. Perhaps its just the ics launcher...

I'm sure it won't be long before everyone is using ICS, once these issues are sorted. I'm looking forward to using the USB host with Torque (OBD2 reader).
