Earlier, I have been compiling InfamousAOKP, Paranoid Android, Carbon and PAC for the galaxy tab (P7510/p4wifi & P7500/p4) based on JellyBean 4.3. I now decided to move over to OMNI ROM as base: http://omnirom.org/
The nice thing of OMNI in my personal opinion is smoothness: it is relatively low in features, but at the same time it is not that resource hungry as some other ROMs. The end result is a smooth ROM.

It features the Infamous kernel (same kernel as for JB4.2, with SELinux).

First installation:
-Boot into recovery
-Factory reset
-Wipe system partition
-Install ROM
-Install Superuser
-Install gapps (you can download any gapps package you like, as long as it is specifically for JB4.3!)
-Boot it up

Update installation (OMNI -> OMNI):
-Boot into recovery
-Install ROM
-Install Superuser
-Boot it up

Known issues:

1. DashClock FC if trying to enter settings -> can be solved by deleting it from /system/apps followed by installing it from Google Play
2. ROM is not rooted by default -> you should flash SuperSU (can be downloaded from the links in post #1)

This is possibly the only 4.2 ROM I'd use because of its smoothness.

You would think that since Chainfire is part of team OMNI, the ROM would be rooted by default.

I've just read the xda portal news about OMNI, and I'm quite confused with people nowadays. I thought that all this time everyone liked cm, but it seems that they've now become the "bad guys" like Samsung and Google just because they've gone corporate and OMNI is the "hero" of the story. I probably don't understand all these because I'm a kid.

SuperSU from Chainfire will come into Omni by default from what I understand, it just hasn't happened yet.

I don't see it so black&white with CM. Yes, they have gone a more commercial route. Are they evil? No, I don't think so. The only disadvantage of a commercial model is that it may lead to unpleasant situations for people who contributed a lot to CM without getting anything in return. But I will personally not be deterred from using CM-source due to the CM Inc. thing.

The strong point of CM(-based) ROMs has always been the huge number of people contributing to CM, making it one of the most stable aftermarket ROMs. If you compare this to e.g. Carbon or PAC, which I have been building myself as well, the much lower number of developers and the lower number of officially supported devices by these ROMs, has often lead to less stable endproducts. I am very curious to see how this develops for CM in future, whether the large number of volunteer-developers will stick with CM or go somewhere else.

hey kasper_h, nice new build, good to see you busy and doing good work! I installed it on a 3G 7500, so far I've been having two problems besides the google TTS crash which seems to be a generic bug in 4.3, it crashes on storage settings and the USB-PC connection seems not to work as well, something related to "com.process.android.media"-something crashes and it just doesn't appear to be recognized at all on the PC side. USB on 4.3 roms worked tho.

P.S.: Love your work and dedication, thank you for doing this.
