Hi all,

this is a CM9 KANG built for the GT-P7500 (3G) model.

What does KANG mean, I hear you asking? It means I'm not the one responsible for the code behind this ROM, it's all CyanogenMod/pershoot/isimobile (as noted below).
I "only" compiled it and wrote this nice post, sharing my KANG along the way. Hope you will like it!

All credits to the CyanogenMod team and Pershoot, they're the real heroes.
Credits to isimobile as well for the 3G stuff. All you guys are great, keep up the awesomeness!

Needless to say, don't bug the CyanogenMod team about bugs (pun intended).
Also, neither I nor CM will be held responsible if your Tab explodes (or any other unfortunate side effect).
That being said, it should work beautifully

What is working:
- 3G
- WiFi tethering
- HW video decoding
- Quite a lot more

Not working:
- Camera

Bugs:
- For auto-brightness to work, lock/unlock the screen once.
- Searching for network providers doesn't work.

How to install:
Do a FULL WIPE/FACTORY RESET & WIPE CACHE in CWM if coming from another ROM!
If coming from any previous version of this ROM, full wipe/cache wipe shouldn't be necessary.
Then, flash in this order:
  1. ROM
  2. Gapps
  3. Kernel modules (optional)
without rebooting between flashes.

Additional info:
To get 3G working, make sure you have the right APN with the right settings for your network provider selected.
For the most part this is autodetected but sometimes it's not detected properly.

Kernel modules are optional. If you want support for things like nfs, ps3 controllers etc... flash this. You will have to do the modprobing yourself (in a terminal window: first get root access with su, then modprobe <modulename-without-.ko>)
cifs.ko, ntfs.ko and tun.ko got moved into the ROM, no need for modules zip if you just want those.

To get your Tab to show up on your computer when connected via USB, goto Settings -> Storage -> click the three dots in the upper-right corner. Enable MTP or PTP.

Looking for a changelog? There's no changelog in the traditional sense but the latest merged changes can be seen here: http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#q,sta...branch:ics,n,z (ignore all android_kernel_* and android_device_* projects) & https://github.com/pershoot/

Don't flash the kernel from Pershoots thread on this ROM. The latest kernel is included in this ROM already. The one in Pershoots thread is for Honeycomb.

Bandwidth kindly provided by my friend snapcase. Thanks man

Download (latest):
ROM: GT-P7500-CM9-KANG-032512-maba.zip - 121 MB (MD5: coming)
  • Requires CWM recovery from here (flash in Odin via "PDA" button). Thread by pershoot here
  • Refreshed CM sources, with new official boot animation
  • WiFi fixed, FOR REAL this time Pershoot has worked very hard on it, please thank him! WiFi Direct not working though at the moment.
  • Fewer graphical glitches (opening recent apps on home launcher still glitches)
  • Voice search fix is now obsolete; upgrade gapps to a newer version instead
Kernel modules: GT-P7500-CM9-KANG-032512-maba-kernel-modules.zip - 6.7 MB (MD5: coming)
  • Modules will be installed to /system/lib/modules, this will make modprobe find them properly

Gapps:
Download gapps from here
Download one of the newer gapps from that page (one of the gapps-ics-2012* files).
If doing an upgrade from an earlier version of gapps, be aware that upgrading gapps can make your tab unbootable. In this case you have to wipe data!
Remember to make a backup before upgrading gapps just in case!

Download Youtube 3.5.* from here

This is not an "older kang". This is freshly compiled from cyanogenmods and pershoots git, with the added code from isimobile and related build config to get 3G working for the GT-P7500 device.

So it's not AOKP in any way, this is "stock" CM9.

Anyway, I'm gonna get some sleep now, it's 4AM here and I'm off to work in ~3 hours.
