Hey technomancer, you should check this out: https://github.com/jt1134/android_ke...349ed5d1f3b7d8

Also needs liboverlay, libstagefrighthw, and sec_mm from aries (lightly modified to include correct headers). You can find those on my github in the vzwtab device tree also

Hope this helps!

Update 2011-11-02
This should fix wifi issues from previous update, but make sure to delete /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf and reboot.
yes, you will lose your stored APs but it is necessary because the config template changed.
2011-11-02
use android socket for wpa_supplicant control interface. anyone upgrading to this version please delete their /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
thanks to jt1134, removed extra field in mfc interface in kernel which prevented it from working with aries OMX libraries
updated media_profiles.xml to expose 1024x600 and 800x600 resolutions for camcorder. its not perfect but at least video recording works now. front cam produces broken video.

Rear camera now records video fine . Front camera records but the playback is corrupt. No big deal.

Not sure, but we now also seem to play HD videos more smoothly than before? HW acceleration didn't always work on certain videos but now it seems pretty good on the few I've played. CM7 is now pretty much close to complete on the Tab, just in time for ICS code to drop and get us busy again .

I believe CM7 on this tab has filesystem mounted by default as read-write so just fire up the file manager and navigate to /data/misc/wifi and delete the file. If the filesystem is read-only then something like Root Explorer from the market can do remounts as read-write.

That is correct. After fixing MFC interface in kernel the OMX libraries that accelerate video encode and decode work much better. So VideoPlayer app and other players that use Android for decode should work much better and possibly use less power. Anything that uses ffmpeg like mPlayer will still work the same.

Angry Attention volunteers ;)
For further camera improvements we will need more information about parameters that the camera app sends to libcamera on stock ROM.
I will prepare little camera wrapper that will log this information to Android log, but I need some volunteer who is switching ROMs a lot who doesn't mind renaming libcamera, pushing the wrapper to /system/lib and giving the camera app some exercise to capture the parameters.
