It's jelly time. Made by a TPT user for TPT users.

Notice
  • Developed on a WE/16Gb 3G TPT. US, UK and ROW Tablets (any size) are confirmed to work, too
  • Density set to 160 dpi to keep market compatibility. Don't like to do this but the market problems are just annoying. Change it with a appropriate app if you don't like it (btw. our native density is approximate 150 dpi).
  • Flash on your own risk! Might turn your TPT into a expensive chopping board.

Requirements
  • This build uses the Lenovo ICS kernel, you need to upgrade to stock ICS first (Make sure you keep root!)
  • A ICS ClockworkMod version like this one.

Screenshots
  • here (Thanks obscure.detour)

Installation
  • Download ROM zipfile (and 3G patch if you want to) and put it on a sd-card
  • Boot into CWM (Reboot and press Vol+)
  • Make a nandroid backup in CWM!
  • Make sure the backup worked!
  • Full Wipe (May not be needed if you come from an earlier CM10 version)
  • Flash zip in CWM
  • Optional: Flash 3G patch in CWM
  • reboot

Restore Stock ICS
  • Boot into CWM (Reboot and press Vol+)
  • Restore old nandroid backup

Additional Steps
  • If you have problems with random reboots or sleep of death try to change wifi to "always on". You can find it in: settings->wifi->"click the 3 dots in the upper right"->advanced->keep wifi on during sleep
  • If you want to use NotesMobile you want to look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7#post34649207
  • If you have problems with wiping (just doesn't work) and want to reformat the data partition, use this zip in CWM: http://ubuntuone.com/4zKT1jqeqhR8qdGh2y4TaM (WARNING: THIS WILL REFORMAT DATA, THAT INCLUDES YOUR INTERNAL SDCARD!)

Working:
  • Wifi
  • Touchscreen + Stylus
  • Bluetooth
  • HW Graphic Acceleration
  • Sound (Including Mic)
  • Cameras Front/Back
  • Compass (but needs calibration)
  • HW Video encoding/decoding (i.e. for Youtube HQ)
  • Mount as USB/MTP for filetransfer (in windows)
  • GPS (Well "working" like always nearly unusable but its working theoretically)
  • Lightsensor and other sensors
  • 3G (Ericsson card)
  • 3G (Gobi card)
  • HDMI
  • Stylus
  • Buttons

Not Working
  • Nothing here anymore. Everything is working somehow but some parts still contain bugs (see buglist)

Known Bugs
  • Google maps crashes sometimes
  • 3G issues:
    - On some devices the carrier is not shown and 3G needs more time to connect
  • Wifi tethering not working
  • Stylus only mod not changeable in lockscreen
  • Some other bugs that occur only on few devices

Things maybe added in future releases
  • A density of 150dpi (a soon as i find a good hacked market or something else)
  • Getting everything to work and stable

Thanks
  • The Cyanogenmod team
  • Everyone releasing their source codes for other builds
  • Everyone trying to find and report bugs
  • pwstein for lending me his gobi card

Amazing! I cannot thank you enough for your continued work Koshu.

Doing a nandroid and testing now. No reason it should not work on a US-based tablet, correct?

Also, any chance we could get an MD5 checksum? Sorry, I'm kind of crazy

Should work. WE, US and UK are pretty much the same devices except the 3G card. I'm just curious if this ROM works also on ROW.

This ROM is running amazingly well. Everything I do, it does it fast and smoothly. Project Butter truly stands out here. Never has this tablet felt so buttery smooth.

I even installed Major Mayhem to try a game out and I feel like it ran better than the official ICS build (OTA3).

Google Now works. USB drive and mouse worked fine. Pen works fine in Lecture Notes and Quill. The pen button does not work in Quill though, pretty sure it has something to do with the way Quill detects the active pen. Sound works, video works as long as it is SD.

Other than that I'll leave you all with these screenshots.

Great job Koshu and thank you!

You have really nice hand writing on the last screenshot.

Koshu keep up the good work, this is amazing. expect a donation once I get this loaded.

You have a ROW tablet? Please let me know if this works and if it doesn't (i assume it won't even boot in this case) send me a copy of your boot.img. As i didn't need to modify the kernel itself (compared to ICS with the HC kernel) we could just try to switch the kernels and see what happens.

Absolutely, feel free to share the pics. It is running super smooth I am absolutely loving it so far. Now I've got JB CM10 on both of my devices!

Also, I have noticed Chrome runs really great. About a thousand times better than ICS (OTA3). Gets a little slow sometimes with 15-20+ tabs but that is to be expected with our aged hardware.

Another note: I use CSipSimple, it allows me to use SIP in combination with a PBX server (Pbxes.org) for WiFi calling on my phone. I have never been able to get it to work with any Lenovo ROMs. Well it works on this ROM! I can now make/receive calls with my tablet using WiFi. I know many don't know or even care what this is, but just wanted to share my excitement.
