Flashing this as soon as I get home! :)

Thanks!


Edit:

Ok, so I've tried this rom out now. It's exciting to have something new to play with on this tab. haven't been running it for long.. just looked through (adjusted) some settings/ set up halo and notifications ribbon and what not. played some games (Words with friends--cause i'm an addict/ minion rush--aka despicable me). The games dropped frames... even the WWF animations.

it's all very good and your efforts are greatly appreciated.

i wanna be clear that i'm not in any way complaining. only reporting back a little. overall the rom is sluggish for now. so not a daily driver. but again very exited to have something new in development. and i know already that once you've figured everything out this will be a great rom to have. wish you had source already cause judging by what you've done without it, i know it'll be awesome.
Netflix opens, but would not play-- don't know what it's got to do with but it's just one of the issues i encountered.
and... no keyboard. I fired up XDA to add this comment, and there was no keyboard.

OK.. keep up the good work!

cheers.


Edit 2: so I began to suspect that much of what I was experiencing might have been due to the fact that I'd done a dirty flash. So do a clean install folks.

So I did a factory reset' and sure enough everything is running much much better.

ROM is running awesome. BTW the boot screen goes dark for about a minute. This is normal.

Always wipe everything when moving from one version of android to another
always wipe everything before reporting bugs in a Dev thread

Request denied set up adb properly :p unless you are saying ums isn't working in windows? I will test on my wife's windows box I run Linux exclusively and it works there, in settings storage menu there are USB connection options you can try if you are having issues.

Thanks for all the feedback guys keep it coming I'll be working on cam today

Alright I have found some odd issues with audio on the 10/8 build. Sometimes I'd get either no audio on some apps (ie: Al Jazeera English Tablet) or really high pitch audio (ie: MLS Match Day). I posted a logcat which I do apologize for its size but I do hope it helps with figuring out what is going on. From what I noticed it seems like both apps are playing the video through Gallery or at least some kind of variant of Gallery if that helps any.

USB for device storage not working in windows but when I change it camera storage it does detect the camera connection.

Also not able to get nexus importer working. Doesn't detect my otg flash drive properly. Nexus importer shows some error message for 4.3

Thank you. Hopefully a easy fix.

By again thank you for your hard work.

usb otg doesn't work in the stock rom because of a kernel incompatibility since I'm using the same kernel it will not work on this rom either.

was trying to get this kernel to load a spoofed module but it isn't being agreeable first I can't export the symbols via a Module.symvers file then even after I got the release name to match the module it decides to play coy by saying it can't find the module when it is there in the path and I can copy it delete it rename it etc rawr I want kernel source

Really liking CM10.2 on this. Is snappier, better battery and now able to do separate user accounts. Conduit Tegra 3 game also works, which didn't with other custom ROM. No camera or NFC but I don't use those on tablet anyway. Essentially performs nearly same as first N7 but with much louder speaker.

One thing I noticed is that Battery listing shows a bluetooth process as 2nd highest process eating battery (behind Display) even though BT not turned on, yet battery life is not bad.
