Now for the moment you all have been waiting for...
Team DRH (Dirty Reset Hole) is proud to announce the public beta for Ice Cream Sandwich. The name "DRH" came from the hole that all of the developers had to drill into the back of their tablet to access the on-board reset button. As you all probably know, development for this project started back in August and has finally developed into a mostly stable release. Ice Cream Sandwich is a huge jump for the G-Tablet community because along with the building of ICS specifically for SMBA1002 (G-Tablet), the Linux kernel backbone had to be reworked from the ground up.
Attention commuters of the intertubes! The group of individuals known as Team DRH take absolutely NO RESPONSIBILITY for any DAMAGE that YOU cause to YOUR device! This "labor of love" we call and Android ROM comes AS IS and is not an official release by any means. If you have not already SOILED your device by flashing a custom ROM then to do so will VOID any WARRANTY you may have left. Team DRH and its affiliates are not responsible if your G-Tablet does any of the following: Explodes, Flies off to space to battle the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Is generally awesome, solves world hunger or explodes... again. (OK We take responsibility for you Tablet becoming Awesomesauce.) So in essence... Flash this totally rad ROM at your own RISK and prepare to Spontaneously Combust with AWESOMENESS!
- Hardware Acceleration
- USB/MTP (If you plug in USB while your tablet is asleep you will have a SOD)
- Capacitive Buttons
- Hardware Buttons
- USB Flash Drives
- Proper SD Card Mounts
- HD Videos
- More to come...
WHAT'S NOT WORKING
- Microphone (Works but drops after 6-8secs)
- Possible ROM Slowdowns
- HDMI Audio
- More to come...

This build has been tested but not to the extreme. It is called a "beta" test for a reason. Sleep is properly working and I have not had to use my reset button in weeks. I'm not trying to scare anyone but the possibility of a kernel panic is still there. This build is very stable and deserves the beta tag but if you find yourself in a snag you might have to press the internal reset button. Here is a picture of where to find the button if you are really in a bind. PICTURE If you have the balls to open your tablet, just drill the reset hole while you're in there. You already voided your warranty
ROM/GAPPZ Package: TeamDRH ROM
ROM (Includes GPS Mod): TeamDRH GPS ROM <-- Only use if you physically installed the internal GPS mod as documented here. This rom is not updated to 1.3 yet.
Remember this is a beta build. It will run nicely for the most part but I'm sure that there will be glitches a quarks that we have not seen. I will keep the what works/doesn't work section updated so we don't have tons of posts cluttering the thread. Also these links will be updated pretty regularly when we have new builds to release.
The ROM's system folder was very close to the max size our system partition could handle on the G-Tablet and with any bad blocks, it was more than the G-Tablet could handle and installing GApps made it even worse. So on initial boot everything was fine, because all the apps that make temporary files don't make them until after initial boot, but in the process of making those temp files it corrupts system files that are already loaded and running, so on a reboot the system fails because the files are now corrupted. This also effected the overall speed of the ROM. This should be fixed with the increased system partition from 200M to 250M.

POSSIBLE MARKET ERROR
Upon start up Android Market may give you an error when you try to download an app. The fix for this is to go into settings/applications and force close market. Upon doing that clear app data and you should be good to go.
