NoThrills A510 Unofficial CyanogenMod 10
version 2012-09-17, built from source


JellyBean for your tablet! Unfortunately, I was not the first to release this... While I was working on it, BenEtNath released his CM10 build, and will forever be recognized as the first developer to bring JellyBean to the Iconia Tab 510 tablets. In future, I'm sure we'll merge our projects, but for now it's fun to learn for the both of us!


Here's what's in this ROM:
  • Multi-language support: All the languages Android offers are available in this ROM. There are too many to list!
  • ThrillsKernel (experimental): Click here for full details on the kernel.
  • Rooted: SU (3.1.1), BusyBox (1.20.2) and SuperUser (3.1.3) installed by default.
  • Fully Deodexed: Both system apps and system framework.
  • Zipaligned: For better RAM usage.
  • /etc/init.d support: Allows you to run your own scripts or mods on boot.
  • AGPS Patch applied and LTO downloadservice installed: This should get you a faster satellite lock.
  • Ad-blocking HOSTS file: Makes your browsing experience faster and less annoying.
  • Various performance tweaks: Yes, even CyanogenMod can be improved!.


Installation:
  • Step 0:
    Check this thread to see if you can help the community before you let us help you!
  • Step 1:
    If you don't have it already, install my CWM-Based Recovery.
  • Step 2:
    Download the ROM from this post, extract the .RAR files and put the .ZIP file on your internal or external SD Card.
  • Step 3:
    Start Recovery by powering down your device, holding the Volume down (**) button and turning it on again.
  • Step 4:
    Make a Nandroid Backup. I can't stress this enough. Select backup and restore and choose one of the backup options.
  • Step 5:
    This step is optional, but recommended when you first install this ROM. Select wipe data/factory reset. Note that this will wipe everything from your data partition, including downloaded apps and settings. Files on your internal or external SD Card are safe.
  • Step 6:
    Install this ROM by choosing install zip from sdcard and then choose zip from sdcard or choose zip from external sdcard.
  • Step 7:
    Wait for the installation to finish (this takes a few minutes). Spend your time reading the text below these installation instructions!
  • Step 8:
    Select reboot system now, and enjoy!


Please read the following carefully before installing this ROM:
  • I am not responsible for anything you do to your tablet. Whatever you do, you do it at your own risk!
  • This ROM is pre-rooted.
  • This ROM does not contain Google Apps, as this is prohibited by the AOSP license. Read below on how to get Google apps, don't use any generic installer!
  • First boot (after the automatic reboot) will take a while (5 minutes is no exception). Just be patient, it will boot faster next time.
  • When the tablet has completed booting for the first time, give it another few minutes to get 'up to speed'. It should be much faster after about 5 minutes.


FAQ:
  • Want themes? Get them somewhere else! I probably don't like your taste, you probably don't like mine. So why pretend? Use this ROM as your base and start theming yourself!
  • Want mods? Your ideas might be good in your situation, they probably aren't in mine. Again, use this ROM as your base and start modding yourself!
  • Found bugs? Let me know! Although I can't promise I'll be able to fix them all, at least I will try.
  • Want to use this ROM as base for your own? Go ahead, make my day. But do credit me with a link to this thread, so people can also taste my flavorless contraptions.
  • Want to give me your first born baby? I'd rather not have that, but if you really want to give me something: Either click the 'Donate to me' button on the left, or simply hit the 'Thanks' button on this post.


Changelog:
See second post.



Downloads:


Google Apps:
The Google Apps are not included in this ROM. Also, because Acer partitioned our device with only 344MB for system files, we're running out of space with JellyBean builds. To remedy this, I have crafted a Google Apps package custom-made for my CyanogenMod 10 build. It will install most of the files to the FlexROM, leaving you with about 90MB space on the system partition.

This package installs the Play Store, Facelock, Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Street View, Google+, Talk, VoiceSearch (Google Now), and Talkback.
Note: Don't use this installer on other ROMs, and don't use other Google Apps installers on this ROM. It will mess things up!

Will test it right now! I am very curious! Can you fix the Dolby driver for CM10? I miss it! The sound was not so loud on benetnath's CM10.

edit: benetnath, good to read your reply... I thought maybe this would become a battle ;) :)

Fyi , nothrills gently PMed me about the release yesterday to prevent any trouble
there is absolutely no conflict in that, and in fact, I'm really happy that he takes the lead on that.
Thanks for the kind mention on OP, I do not deserve it a lot as my major work was porting the great work of pawtip but it's nice to have been for a while the current releaser of android 4.1 for this great device we own
The only thing that is sad for me is that I'm not even sure I'll flash own build once I get mytab back.. :D strange situation isn 't it. .
anyway thanks a lot nothrills
I'm really happy that you join the story, because without your recovery, I would not have been able to release my cm10

Two bugs:
1080p filming doesnt work at the first time, second time it's perfect
- Google Voice search FCs after you said something, even after reboot

But I never use it so no big deal.. it's blazing fast! Thanks!

Wow, this ROM is very cool. Thanks for the work! :)

I noticed that there's no sensitivity setting, though? Was that canned in CM10?

    its has been 4 weeks since it has been released and no updates.

    First of all: september 17th -> october 8th = 3 weeks, not 4. Have some patience.
    Second: In this post I explained that I would take things a bit slow as my vacation was done.
    Third: I do this in my spare time: I don't get paid for it (except 3 donations) and I have bills to pay. Work comes first, hobbies later.
    Fourth: I don't see that many other devs working on the A510, so in my humble opinion you should be happy you get anything at all.
    Fifth: Developing takes time.
    Sixth: The current CM10 works pretty good as-is, there's no need (again, my opinion) to release something every week, especially if there are no major fixes.

    Not to be arrogant or anything... But this bugs me a bit. I don't mind people asking (or expecting, even) if something new comes out, but don't pretend like it's your right and act annoyed when things aren't done your way.

    Just a heads up guys, I won't have that much time anymore to release stuff on XDA... When I had vacation I had plenty of time to learn all this crap (yes, I never compiled anything before 3 weeks ago), but it's time for other developers to step in here :)

    I am setting up a Git repository and will be appointing Benetnath as a 2nd moderator/owner/whatever, but as he also has limited time I think I speak for the both of us if we say that any help from other developers is welcome.

    Note, this does not mean I am leaving you guys hanging, but don't be surprised if I myself don't build anything for a month or so. As I have a job that pays the bills, this wil always have priority over the XDA-community :cowboy:

    That's is all, be as you were ;)

    Yeah, I got both your donations. Thanks alot!! :victory:

    Note though, I don't want to beg for donations... A 'Thanks' is good enough too, only donate if you want, and more importantly, if you can.

    But still, thanks! I actually have something I want to buy with it :cool:
