Looking forward to Moscow's A501 rom with working 3G...
Cheers mate, hope the new baby isn't getting you too tired.
What do you think Mate?
As with the 501 Source build:
I put together a recovery install using HC bootloader (on androidtabletgeeks.com) of course the same issues as with the leaked 500. No RW permissions in system (unless you use adb), and today I noticed a couple of "sleep of death". Actually 1, as I caught the other just on the verge. Superuser works as with terminal and busy box. But same deal. We'll need a patched version of the 501 boot.img. And no, I know very little about kernels. And seeing the kernel guys fixed the issues with the leaked 500 rom, I think they have moved on to other projects.
I didn't install the ICS bootloader. Too much of a pain right now, as my tab is still my daily driver. I posted my findings on both threads.
GPS you have to run an adb command to get it running. Not sure what the deal is with that, but it works. But horrible accuracy. Shows about 100m from where you should be.
The rest of it, seems to be running ok.
One little note, I can't get Data or Data/app to install. Not sure WTF is up with that. My guess, is that "my" data install, is getting overwritten during some portion, as Market Play when the tab boots, is located in Data/app.
Also, 3g loses signal every now and then. For about 20 seconds. Then comes back. . Also, Wifi and 3g run at the same time, which costs battery power.
Thor's ICS rom.
Same issue with 3g. Just loses it for a minute, then comes back. Also, GPS takes about 5-10 minutes to get a lock. Didn't check for accuracy. And the killer, is because he has his own OC/UV kernel, you get the 501 3g freeze and sleep of death. Not enough voltage going to the system board. Happened 3 times in just a few hours.
And yes, little alexandra keeps me very busy, and leave little time to play
