Thank you Teleferic. This tablet is totally usable and it's been on $99 sale in Canada lately so more people are buying them.

If you have time these are issues I encountered
a) screen keeps waking up during charging; have to reboot to mitigate. Can't yet figure out when it does and doesn't happen.
b) random lockup - it tends to happen shortly after start/reboot; screen stays on
c) audio volume low; I tried to find system file to modify but I couldn't - using a 3rd party app for now
> resolved with R4 kernel
d) dev options doesn't stick after reboot
> mitigated with R4 kernel, default state off
e) google maps only work first time after install; it crashes if you pull up any details on POI. It works again if app gets updated then starts crashing. clearing data doesn't fix. --still trying to determine exact mode of failure


I can reproduce them without any apps installed so I ruled those out.

Once again, big thank you.

Thanks, I'll check all these out for the next build. That random lockup is very elusive, it was there from the very first build, I think I'm getting close to finding out the solution.

Edit: Oh Yes, most of those settings don't stick, unless those are set into the rom. I'll have that fixed as well.

Kernel Revision 4
Hi guys. Thought I'd push out a new kernel revision that hopefully resolves a few issues;
Kobo Arc 10HD Downloads

Changes
  • Random freeze/lockup issue might be solved (still unsure)
  • Internal volume set to its maximum (headphone/speakers)
  • Hw overlays disabled by default (graphics workaround)
  • Adb is now set to be disabled on default
  • System fps limit is lifted
  • wifi driver updated (may stop the possible chance of a battery drain condition)
  • f2fs file system support is now in this kernel (flash recovery r2 and format cache/data partitions if you know what you're doing, etc, backup)
USEFUL LINKS
Revision: cm-12.1-20160704-UNOFFICIAL-macallan
Revision: cm-12.1-20160624-UNOFFICIAL-macallan
Flashing Recovery (dazza9075)
Github Links
Old installation guide (still applies for recovery installation)

Where in Canada are you finding this tablet for $99? I have a friend who wants one.

Here: http://www.factorydirect.ca/Canada-O...D4_2_TABLET_/0
Was 99 last week when I got it. Now 129 which I think is the most I'm willing to pay for. I found the deal here: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/dead-...99-98-2029397/ and by looking at other similar threads it looks like it goes on sale often.
It's refurbished but mine came in 100% brand new state. Most people report the same on the forum above.

Hey everyone, so that random lockup/freeze is still there. I've been looking at that every so often for a couple weeks now and I don't think it's the kernel causing it.

If any one can get a logcat/kmsg right before that freeze occurs (which is really hard), that'd be great thanks. I have a hard time reproducing that lockup. If that is solved then the rom becomes much more stable.

I'm currently recompiling some stuff, and checking out cm13.

Flashed R4 and testing out; A piece of hint/tangent - one time when it locked up it lost all wifi profiles. Not sure what wifi has to do with lockups. It only happened once out of all lockups.

- Speaker is great
- Dev options default is definitely better (better than leaving them on)
- With HW overlay disabled I feel tablet is flying compared to before. I thought tablet slowness was normal.
-It feels like device charges faster (possibly because it isn't wasting power / battery drain fix related)

-As I'm writing, my device is keep waking up while charging but when I plugged for ADB, it stops doing it so I logcat needs to be run on device I think.

- all songs under music player shows duplicate names. every song is shown twice, plays twice if you let it play through list. I cleared data/cache and didn't work.

Yeah, kernel r3 might probably be smoother than this new one. I've reverted and added some changes to debug some issues.

The biggest setback to porting this rom so far has been the kernel, it's really made for android jelly bean, it doesn't like android 5.1.1 at all.

I'm not really a kernel developer, so we'll see how it operates in the coming updates.

Thanks so much for your continued work. Even with Kernel issues you've made this tablet SO much better.
Keep up the work, vastly appreciated!
