*************EXPERIMENTAL INSTALLERS BE AWARE*******************

**************** ALSO As these are Experimental Builds if a new kernel comes out and you flash it and it doesn't work.... Do Not hound the kernel builder.... they do not and can't support these builds as of yet ***

**** FINAL EXPERIMENTAL Version Uploaded ****

**** I have been having to Format System, Data, and cache from the Mounts and storage menu of clockwork between flashes ****

There is no support yet for these, and feature requests are not being taken just yet as it is still in a state of flux. With that said I know alot of you are itching to try something new. Keep an eye on this page and the linked page below as I will be uploading as I build from here on out...

These are Experimental Builds.... what does that mean? Well it means it worked on my dev tablet and may be missing a feature or two and or include some code that is not quite finished.

These are BLEEDING EDGE!
*****Stop and reread from the beginning*****

ClockworkMod 0.8 is required. Make sure you are running 0.8.

These are all Update.zip format files are flashable through ClockworkMod. YOU MUST WIPE EVERYTHING DATA/CACHE/DALVIK! ****Even Between Versions of the Experimental... Everything is in a state of Flux right now****

Today will be the last Experimental build of VEGAn-TAB GingerEdition.... you can pick it up over on the Experimental page. I am almost ready to call this a Beta but wanted one more Experimental build to work out any final pre-Beta type bugs. So what is working? Well pretty much everything... LOL. I think we finally got the Main Market issues worked out... should see just about everything now. YOU MUST INSTALL THE LATEST GAPPS from here: http://goo-inside.me/gapps/latest/7/universal/ . This has ONLY been tested with a FULL DATA WIPE, so if you are still having issues that may be your only option.

So what has changed? A lot since the last build.

Merged up to 2.3.3 Gingerbread.... that was a chore had to rebase and rebuild my entire repo as something wasn't jiving.

Merged in the TNT 3991 Libs.... the Ventana ones are not useful yet unfortunately.

Created a more tablet friendly lockscreen no more slide tabs on the side.... they are now on the bottom landscape wise as they should... and don't look phone like any more.

Statusbar improvements:

* Battery Percent graphics
* Matching Wifi graphics
* Added some full color icons for the statusbar power widget the status bar itself
* Modified Statusbar Pulldown to better fit with theme (added a slight alpha to it and changed some elements to black)

Added in fake ril to help with Market Issues (ATM Phone stuff has to remain or it may break market) But I removed all of their icons from the launcher.... so unless you actually go to Settings/Manage Applications you will not know they are there.

Changed the (no service) text to VEGAn-TAB so we are not constantly reminded that we don't have phone parts....

Removed RomManager, PacMan(auto market installer) as they cause issues with other things.

And Lots more background things that you will not visibly notice.

The Latest Flash player from the market now works. Latest google maps still doesn't work (this is a screw up with maps on google's part they coded one of the layout files wrong, there is a fix but I don't want to do it because it screws with too many other things.... better to use the old maps version for the moment). SDCard and internal memory are now handled like we are used too with the old VEGAn and TNT and several other Builds.... Internal Memory is mapped to SDCard and external SD Card is mapped to SDCard2. With nothing else installed Quadrant consistently comes in at about 2100 and a 41.45fps on Nenamark so performance is pretty decent so far.

Hopefully I will move to BETA 1 fairly quickly... there are several "Features" I am trying to work out first though so it might be a week or so.

NOW STABLE HERE : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=12818284

ALSO: A Big Thanks to chariotdrive for the new boot animation! Gotta say it is pretty sweet! Also added his wallpapers to the stock picker and one of HIS Wallpapers is now the STOCK Wallpaper for the Experimental.

Downloading now. Is there a list of known issues, or a good place to report bugs?

From his website:
****THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL**** No need to to inform us of bugs or feature requests just yet..... this is still in a state of flux. Only flash this if you dare.... and be prepared to flash back to something else if you don't like it... this is here for those that want to see some of the progress being made towards GingerBread.


This build is simply for us to play with but I'm guessing this thread is as good as any to talk about it.

Yea. This does require new cwm or older version is fine?

Does new cwm can be flashed just like ROM?

Few questions before I dive into this.

Clcokwork 3.0.0.5 is not required. It will not work with other roms. If you use it you will have to flash the bekit 0.8 to go back to froyo roms.

DL page is recommending you backup current rom, flash experimental version of CWM that is on the same page before installing the experimental build, Wipe data & cache also.
