Unofficial, no warranty, express or implied. Not final, nothing to do with the CM people, not backed by them, not made by them, may cause corruption of innocent kittens if used irresponsibly. I am posting this only because the main CM sources are not perfect right now for building for Qualcomm devices just yet, and need some tweaks in new branches.

CM 10.2 Android 4.3 built for, and working on Pollux_Windy, once again thanks to Sony using such nice, open-source-friendly devices.

Working:

WiFi
Compass + sensors
Sound
Bluetooth
Front + Rear Camera
External SD (including ExFAT)

Not Working:

GPS

This is for the Pollux_Windy (SGP311) Wifi ONLY tablet. It should work on the SGP312 (32 GB wifi only) as well, but will NOT work on the Pollux (with LTE).

Tried to flash this but i'm getting an error about device build prop not matching requirements. I had a 312 rom on first, and flashed a 311 stock rom, but still get the error. My device is 311 by default.

Do i need to edit my build.prop? Even though my device shows as SGP311?

EDIT: Ah nevermind, i had the stock bootloader still installed. Doh!

Updated to 30 July build - includes the new Focal camera app. Yes, it has a few bugs with tablets and orientation. It's known.

Is root possible yet? I tried the supersu zip that was attached in op, but still needs the binary according to the supersu app. Do we need to adb push the binary?

Edit: Nevermind, just tried the latest supersu and works fine.

I can't get a restricted user to work for the life of me. All kinds of processes are force stopping and I couldn't pick trebuchet from the list on setup either, though I did manage to work around that with Apex eventually, though Apex kept crashing too.

I assume apps might have to support this (or at least launchers?) But core processes?

I did dirty flash so it's possible that has something to do with it.

Still digging around. I'll clean flash later to retry restricted users too.

Restricted profiles are not tested or a priority right now in CM I believe.

Got this working on my xtz SGP311 seems really quick so far recovery plays nice, only real issues I've encountered is that the screen flickers black every now and then using the aosp browser and MX player pro doesn't work as android 4.3 isn't supported yet which has nothing to do with the rom.

WiFi and GPS seem to working used google maps to find a location and navigate there had no issues with those yet.

Definitely something different over the Sony ui and less cluttered just need the sony remote :)

Gonna have a play with it and see how I get on with it lots of options to play with hehe

Check out the project by @Apache14 that brings infrared remote control support to non Sony ROMs!

Are you sure gps is working? I don't think it should be in this ROM...

I had a go at the open source IR by apache but had no luck getting it to work, but I'm not sure if I installed it right.

I'll have another play with GPS today as I've got more time and let you know I could have jumped the gun on this one lol. I quickly downloaded an app called GPS test and although it says the GPS is on it doesn't show anything else like coordinates or location I'll keep playing for now though.

Thanks a lot for throwing this together... everything seems to be working great, I'm impressed by focal.

I'm still struggling with is the absence of tablet UI (trying to hit the home softkey in landscape is impossible, so I've been forced to full!screen, which is working well), but it's a small price to pay for the jump from Sony's 4.1.2 to a functional 4.3 Rom.

Interesting. Out of interest, how do you use your tablet ? I'm just trying to work out if there is any link or difference - personally I thought the same, that tablet was good, until I used my Nexus 10... Then I was "sold" - tablet UI was sub-optimal. I tend to use the tablet with 2 hands - one holding it, another free across the top for use. I find keeping navigation to the centre more logical personally, and more ergonomic. It also keeps the notification tray at the top, consistent with the phone. At other times, I use the tablet as a "monitor" and type with a Bluetooth keyboard, where I do not interact with the touchscreen much (except at arm's length), and find phablet UI quite convenient. Moreso than I felt with tablet UI.

It's intriguing though. I am sure I can look at readding it some time, but I'm fairly busy so it will take a while. I noticed Sony seem to be moving to phablet UI for 4.2 as well though...

I hold mine on the sides and mostly interact with my thumbs, thus central on screen controls are hard to reach. But, to each his own. I also use Thumb Keyboard exclusively on my tablets, much more natural than trying to type with one hand holding with the other.

so yeah i finally got around to testing the GPS navigation and it just says "Searching for GPS" the whole time so confirmed its not working.

i also found a issue with the swipe to type on the AOSP keyboard as soon as i tried to use swiping it force closed the keyboard, not a big issue just thought id mention it.

i noticed you've done a couple of updates as well whats the best way to update the rom just flash as usual using the file in op?

Just like with CM nightlies, just flash the latest update right over whatever you have.

In rare cases other changes will be needed, maintainers will usually let you know in these cases.

I'm investigating GPS on 10.1 on the windy - it's proving to be a bit of a headscratcher, although it has many of the hallmarks of the same problem we had with the modem on mint (Xperia T) months ago. Unfortunately, we can't use the same fix/workaround we used on mint. :(

pulser, may want to check the CM10.1 thread for my SMD debugging patch, might give some useful info - although what I need to do is get a build environment together for stock kernels so I can apply that patch to .370 for comparison.

i hate to sound like a noob but i am still learning lol is it safe to just flash the updates with cwm or is it best to do it with the flash tool?

it seems like gps has got a lot of people scratching their heads at the moment but im sure with so many looking into it there is sure to be a solution soon :)


Edit: its OK I went ahead and flashed the update using cwm and it worked, I'm to impatient to wait lol but at least I've learned something :)
