Hear ye, hear ye! I've started porting CyanogenMod 9 to the Galaxy Tab Plus. While it's up and running (and actually quite usable), this is really only a developer preview. Please understand that this is a very rough initial port, and lots of stuff doesn't work.

Warning! Do not flash!

Do not flash this unless you know how to backup your data and especially unless you know how to get back to stock. If you don't already know how to do this, you might want to familiarize yourself with the process now, while the other developers and me get CM9 to a more "daily driver" state. I don't have time to help n00bs unbrick their devices. No offense!

Known issues
Please don't complain about them unless you're willing to fix them. :)
  • USB mounting of internal storage (will never work). Removable sdcard can work, but is disabled for now. Note: USB mounting is different than MTP, which works fine already.
  • HDMI out
  • Hardware acceleration for DivX/MP3
  • IR Blaster
  • WiFi is a bit iffy, sometimes you need to toggle it off and on
  • GPS doesn't get as many satellites as in stock

Flash
Flash from ClockworkMod Recovery 6.0.1.x (probably works with 5.0.2.x, but I use 6.0.1.x so your mileage may vary). Make sure to wipe data/factory reset. No whining if it eats your homework.

Sources
We share a LOT of similar hardware with other Exynos 4210 / Mali 400MP devices. Right now we're sharing lots of code with the Tab 7.7 people. Here is a list of where you can find my/our code.

Credits
  • ohanar -- set up the initial device tree for the GT-68x0 (Tab 7.7). Huge help and time saver!
  • teamhacksung -- badass dev dudes who have a dream
  • goo-inside.me -- hosting
  • CyanogenMod community in general

Donate
I do this for fun (I have a day job that pays me). If you're able to donate, donate to one of the following organizations, without whom none of this would be possible:

So do this have any OC settings cooked in?
Does CyanogenMod9 have custom kernel settings and options?

Is phone/data a priority or do you have any priorities.

And will donations help this along any quicker?

We love you!

    I'm baaaack.

    I'm back from vacation, and I've synced up with locerra's latest changes to the tab device trees. He's been very productive over the last two weeks, and I have new builds for P6200, P6210, and T869 on their way to the server as we speak...

    You'll have new builds verrrrrry soon.

    Developer preview 3.2

    Here's DP 3.2. Nothing major, just a minor update with the rear-facing camera working again. Note: it's still not working 100%, merely back to how it was before it regressed in DP 3.1 (locerra made some libcamera changes). :)

    P6200: goo-inside.me (md5: 1271d226e74a96341d75a8439735eac1)
    P6210: goo-inside.me (md5: 38ed64d1f625ef7d5d174007139f008e)

    While it is working, I get roughly 5 out of 10 shots which are plagued by artifacts, for example:

    DP3 for P6210

    I've decided to take up managing the P6210 releases for now, since kmmxracer has decided to leave us. :)

    Here's some DP3 love for the wifi guys:

    P6210 (DP3, May 13, 2012): goo-inside.me / mirrors wanted! (md5: b6ec56f08d32fcf052a2cc7f63cc8230)
    ClockworkMod Recovery P6210: From garyd9
    Google Apps: http://goo-inside.me/gapps/ (use the CyanogenMod 9 one)

    Keep in mind I don't actually have this device... so if it doesn't boot, BREATH, and then tell me what happened. :)
