Update 2 below is provided to fix file transfer issues between tablet and PC.

Check out this video review by @glevitan. http://youtu.be/oZQvwXbOi60

This is a port of the T2105 Kids Tab from Samsung.

It has normal mode and Kids mode. Kids mode features a kids launcher, kids camera, various kids games, and parental controls. Pre-installed kids games are automatically hidden from the normal mode app drawer (they can be un-hidden). I haven't explored all the kids games, so feel free to report about your experiences.

It is a very large rom, so some of the kids apps have been converted to user apps (data/apps).

I make no guarantees that every kids app will work flawlessly. If it doesn't work, just remove it and download a new one.

It is still loaded with all the Samsung bloatware, so it isn't exactly the snappiest rom out there. It is also rooted, so you can easily remove whatever you wish. It includes a self-compiled kernel, but I recommend @ketut.kumajaya's Blackhawk kernel.

Install using your favorite custom recovery. Full wipe/factory reset required.
  1. Download the KidzRom World Edition HERE. This version has more languages than the original US version.
    or
    Download the original US version of the rom HERE.

  2. Install Update 1 after rom installation (original US version only). This update removes a couple kids apps that didn't work properly and updates a couple that had store updates. There are plenty of kids apps in the kids store to replace the ones removed.

  3. All users should install Update 2 to fix file transfer issues between tablet and pc.

  4. (Optional) If your tablet has the newer bootloader version, you may get a black screen during the boot process. You can use the kernel from THIS post or install the latest blackhawk kernel.

No need to wipe before installing the updates.

No Background Music mod eliminates the background music while in Kids Mode.

are there any bugs?

i don't have a tab 3 yet but i've been debating whether or not to get this or the official kids version for my son but if this has no bugs i don't see any reason why i would buy the more expensive one.

I didn't really notice any bugs when I was testing, but I didn't spend a whole lot of time on it.

We'll have to wait for some reports to come in.

Edit: Okay, some of the kid games don't work correctly. I will release an update if I figure out the issue.

I have no intention of trying to get it working on any other device, but if someone who owns a T211 wants to use it as a base, I don't mind at all.

I posted an update in the OP (only about 60mb) that will remove a couple kids apps that didn't work properly. There are plenty of apps in the kids store to replace the ones removed.

Even if you don't find the time to work out the issues with the Asian language apps, the UI is so much nicer than what's available on the play store and I know my daughter is going to love this present! I have a large catalogue of games and apps associated with my play account anyway, which will be made available to her in kids mode.

Props again gr8nole

Great...and thank you very much @Redonkulous for the donation.
