Hate to be a noob but is there an advantage of this over the CM10 build? I had heard that initially CM10 didn't have butter but I'm not sure if that's fixed or not.

More choices the better I say. Someone might prefer AOSP over CM. I'm personally curious to try some AOKP on tablet. Anyways it's always great to see a device go from basically one rom to having 5 different roms all thanks to the manufacturer releasing code and our faithful devs.

Flashed the nvflash variant and restored apps via Titanium.

Everything is working really great, I prefer clean vanilla over CM and this is just perfect.
Thank you very much khanning!

P.S. Any idea what would have to be done to enable the home button to wake the tablet or what the issue with enabling that is?

I just installed it.
Don't see Google now anywhere.
Is it included?

Thanks.

---------- Post added at 03:29 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:02 AM ----------

Also noticed something odd.
Some of the apps don't look optimized for a 10" tablet.
They look more like an app on a 7" tablet like the Nexus.
The Youtube app for instance, has only two rows in the carousel view as opposed to three.
Also, can't find Google search installed in the system.
I can't find Search in the Play store either.
Will it be OK if I just re-flash all Google apps for JB from this link using CWM?

Did you flash GApps? GNow is the replacement for search. That is why you don't have either.

GApps is not a separate package here unlike CM9 or CM10. It is included as part of Khanning's install files, so no need to install them separately.
Because of the absence of Google Search app and the issues with Youtube app not scaling properly, I asked if it is OK to reflash the JB Google apps pack again. Will that overwrite the system apps correctly? I haven't tried it yet. Maybe it is better to wait for Khanning's update.

I backed up and then flashed JB GApps and everything seems to be working fine after over 12 hours of use.
