    CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    WARNING: I've bricked my tablet into APX mode around the 10th time of flashing this ROM (recovery froze and it rebooted into APX). The new (Update 1) recovery should be safer than the old one, but flash at your own risk!

     * Your warranty is now void.
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    Device-specific source code for the Acer A700 are available from https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_acer_a700 and https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_kernel_acer_t30

    Reporting Bugs

    You are allowed to report bugs only in this thread.

    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. The following is a useful format to follow.

    What is your--
    Phone model:
    Radio (baseband):
    CM version:
    CM Download url:
    Gapps version:
    Did you--

    The CyanogenMod team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!

    @pawitp Is Cyanogenmod 10.2 (Android 4.3) realistic for our a700?

    It'll probably eventually get it. I just don't have the free time right now to port it.

    I'm aware of that. did you already tried it and how does it look? does the image gets upscaled and filtered or how?

    Run this from adb shell or root terminal

    am display-size 1200x800
    am display-density 160

    Then reboot. Use this to restore original setting.

    am display-size reset
    am display-density reset

    Thank you for the logcat! I've triggered a test build with the fix. Please test if it works or not.

    Has anyone had success tethering to a phone? I've tried tethering my A700 to my GT-i9300 both running cm10.1 and though they connect using Wi-Fi hotspot and bluetooth tethering, internet only works when the i9300 is using Wi-Fi from my router. If my i9300 is on data and I try to open a browser or internet reliant app like Facebook, Gmail etc., on the A700, it tries to load unsuccessfully. I know others on the i9300 cm10.1 discussion thread have had success with other tablets. I couldn't find a tethering setting when on stock (A700) but would expect it to work if it works when my phone has a Wi-Fi connection to my router!

    I tether from my Galaxy S1 just fine. Have you tried your accessing I9300's internet from another device (e.g. laptop) to verify that it is indeed providing a connection?

    Has anyone tried LagFix/FStrim on their device running this version of CM? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.grilledmonkeydonate.lagfix&hl=en

    As a side note, any idea if it is possible, in the works, etc to get TWRP working on our device? Is it possible or easy to port it? I find it more user friendly for flashing the nightlies along with the Chrome Desktop patch, Sony Certificate Installer etc that I do along with every update.

    FStrim will have no effect on our device since I've disabled TRIM support within the kernel, as it is this command that causes bricks on our device. (There is a bug in Samsung's EMMC firmware.)

    Porting TWRP should be fairly easy to do.

    EDIT: Attached. Not creating a new thread for this since I won't really be supporting it.
