This is the general discussion thread for Android 4.1.x Jelly Bean for A500.

CM10 randomblame's Jellytime
CM10 civato's JB 4.1.2 FLEX v6supercharged
CM10 pjsports's rom

CM10 builds from wds :unmaintained

Jelly Bean Gapps:
Latest gapps
Gapps full list.


Troubleshooting:

The unlocked ICS bootloader is required.

If you encounter an error during the flashing process use another recovery, TWRP is known to cause problem with this rom, a CWM based recovery should do it.

If you have problems with the Google Play Store after a bit, uninstall updates for it.

If you want to avoid the lockscreen bug, you can disable it in settings-security.

@lowsum, thanks for taking the initiative.

I will ask that you maintain the OP, providing some info ie FAQ, links for gapps etc
Will get a thread opened up in dev later today...

You guys may need to track down a better jb gapps package to use, I think the one listed in the thread is causing a lot of the reported issues...

Only issue...

Excellent start... so impressed!!

Only issues I have is with percentage battery not showing in status bar and an invisible slide on wake up. It works but can't see it... a little tricky but no deal breaker.

Huge congrats on a fine and rapid effort!

*EDIT* Odd... as if by magic, the slider is back! Only thing I think I tried was rebooting a few times AND turning off BOTH screen animations on wake / lock... Weird, but happy now!

My test results

Flashed CM10+gapps.jb.20120717. GMail and some other Google apps are not included and you'll need to get those separately from the Play Store.

SOFTWARE: Market apps did not auto restore; but all of them were able to be manually installed with no errors. I used ICSBrowser with Thor's ICS ROM...this app does not work in JB. GoogleNow, Netflix, and YouTube work great. Alternate launchers also work great.

HARDWARE: The rotation lock toggle doesn't work, but there is a quick setting option for that anyway. Sound works flawlessly. External Seagate 500GB hard drive works. Acer USB mouse works. Acer BT keyboard works. DSLR Controller works with my Canon EOS Rebel XT as far as reading the memory card; but cannot capture images which was no different in ICS. I could not get a GPS lock with GPS status nor could the Navigation app get GPS.

I have not tested any games yet. I'll load up some of my favorites tonight or tomorrow and report back.

THIS IS EASILY A DAILY DRIVER. Many many many thanks to WDS!

@waydownsouth: My pleasure, I will maintain this thread no problem. That's the least I can do. Keep it up, it's working amazingly well already.

On my side GPS doesn't work, lockscreen sometime disappears and like most rom since ICS there's some screen flickering noticable on low brightness and dark color (kernel related I think). Battery percentage is also not showing in status bar. I had a couple of browser crash, but it was with Quick ICS Browser wich has been updated to support JB.

There's a lot of CM9 code still to be ported to CM10, things will get better as things go on.

GPS is still very broken, there have been some permissions changes in how the gps lib communicates with the native proprietary daemon... I have a workaround in mind, just need to get it implemented...

If you have problems with the Google Play Store after a bit, uninstall updates for it. I was able to use it after having problems as flashing GApps didn't help.

This is an awesome ROM! Thanks to everyone that has put work into this. Just to report on three issues I have found:
-Gmail app crashes every darn time. The app seems to be a hot mess.
-The unlock screen seems to go "invisible" after the tablet has been on for a while. You kinda have to guess where the button is and swipe.
-I use a bluetooth keyboard. Normally the touch keyboard goes hidden when BT keyboard is connected, but not in this AOSP ROM.

Thanks guys for the awesome work.

For a first build this is awesome! Even camera works!!
I'm using it as a daily.

I do have the following issues. (This is not a complain, I'm thoroughly impressed with this rom, this is just me reporting the issues i've experienced so far)

1) GPS doesn't work.
2) Gmail, calander, and Reddit is fun GP crash occasionally. Here is the gmail logcat: https://www.dropbox.com/s/taavl8kacv23q2z/gmail-logcat.txt
I think this is those same memory leak issues we had in the ICS rom.
3) after a while the lockscreen becomes "invisible", but still functions. In the mean time I just disabled it.
4) When importing photos from a DSLR into gallery over usb the new photos do import to the tablet but do not get added to gallery. It took an hour and two reboots before they showed up (no matter what i tried).
5) despite being set to "wifi always on" wifi disconnects during sleep
6) Plugging in a usb keyboard does not hide the onscreen keyboard

Tested the hdmi, audio is not working (it did in hc3.2)
My screen, after wakeup, is black after tab has been asleep for more than a minute. I have to press power button to restart tab every time. I have turned off animation for both on and off.

Thanks

    There is some new builds coming not sure how soon, but I have moved my main server from an 8 core to 16 core processor.. so after moving everything I gave waydownsouth the new IP address and did mention to me some new builds failed to upload.. (didn't mention what device) I have verified everything is working now for him.. so now we await for when he creates a new build the appropriate device subscribers will get notified still, made sure to test and make sure the notification system was working after the big move.. anyways he is still getting work done. Just imagine must be hard to debug and build for many iconia devices with such a small team of developers. Anyways hang in there guys :)

    200th post :)

    I've got "true" gps working now... had to use a hack, but, we're good for the time being.
    Those that have been reporting working GPS are likely being located by wifi...

    New build & a dev thread in the morning, right now... must sleep, it's 2:30

    Hi all,

    Sorry that I've been a bit quiet for the last little while... IRL has been rather demanding of my time... 60+ hour weeks at work :(
    I have most of the upcoming weekend free, so, planning to spend a good chunk of time on this.

    I've just queued up some new builds off a fresh sync... they should be uploaded over the next couple of hours.

    Hey all,

    Been a little bit quiet for the last few days, IRL has been getting in the way.
    I'll get a new build up for the a500 in the next few hours & hopefully once I figure out the last little bug in the 501 rom there'll be a new build for that too.
    I need someone with the 501 (or 101) to join me on irc or gtalk to figure something out... need to have adb at the ready.

    I have bought the a200 is up to speed & am currently doing a little bit of private testing, will hopefully get a build up for that in the next day or two...

    waydownsouth , I need to talk to you.
    Send me a PM, or you can often find me in IRC freenode #iconia-dev
    :)

    cheers, wds
