Note: Please upgrade to CM10.1 for some fixes. This is currently unmaintained.​

Broken:
  • Bluetooth (some progress has been made, but it still does not turn on)
  • Camera preview, some JPEG corruption
  • Earpiece (sound comes out the speaker by the camera on the back instead)
  • Only earphones with 4-part plugs work (like those with a mic) the first time (see last "What if?" question)

Installation:
  1. Reboot to CWM
  2. Make a Nandroid (optional, but recommended)
  3. Format /system if you had a different GApps package installed
  4. Install ROM
  5. Install GAPPS if you just formatted /system
  6. Wipe data/factory reset if you are coming from Gingerbread
  7. Reboot
  8. ??? (wait a while...)
  9. Profit

What If....
  • I get a message saying "assert failed. Installation aborted"? Go to "Mounts and Storage" -> "Format /system" and try again.
  • my capacitive buttons don't work (US)? Reboot.
  • my capacitive buttons don't work (INTL)? Flash the international kernel.
  • the navigation bar is really annoying? See tweaks in second post.
  • the torch doesn't work? It's because camera is kinda broken. Workaround: take a picture with flash set to "on", and stay in the camera app.
  • I wiped data before flashing? It won't make a difference.
  • I can't update Google Now? Use the newer Google Apps package.
  • I want to switch my storage? See second post.
  • the ROM is too slow? Try enabling the overclock, or switch to ondemand governor, or use Mercurius kerne.
  • I can't get any headphones to work? Install SoundAbout and set it to wired with mic.

So the latest version was broken. My advice is just wait for CM10.1. To fix app installation issues on 2/18, stick the apps in /data or /system with a root browser first, or use the next oldest or Mercurius kernel.
02/18 - http://www.mediafire.com/?o5e72z7sdopbja5 - Updated CM10 code
01/22 - http://www.mediafire.com/?w7r2we0e4as90fs - Updated CM10 code, kernel RAM/OC tweaks, back cam fixed, .android_secure fixed
01/08 - http://www.mediafire.com/?kbjsv6en7awa37d - Max OC set to 1.3 GHz, governor and touchscreen tweaked, newest CM10 code
01/06 - http://www.mediafire.com/?h9yhna89wtjkb1s - Kernel OC'd + optimized, better camera HAL, remove useless libs, include Live wallpapers and extra sounds
01/05 - http://www.mediafire.com/?7364sa929z4ycf7 - Fixed video playback and recording, updated CM10 codebase, remove seeder
01/04 - http://www.mediafire.com/?dqhmm1jhoxlv2dc - Enable mass storage, fix vold for the last time, include rngd, new governor and scheduler
01/03 - http://www.mediafire.com/?zjixb6ny435m2ss - Added MMS, tweaked storage and framework, improve camera
01/02 - http://www.mediafire.com/?iz68q06041l628j - Initial Beta

Alternate Kernels - You can replace the boot.img in the zip with one of these, flash it with heimdall, or rename it to zImage, stick it in a tar, and flash with Odin.
International - Up to date - http://www.mediafire.com/?3mcbbwbv87h06af - For users with a physical home button. It will fix your capacitive buttons. This also has the driver for the Korean camera.
No Charging Hack - Old - http://www.mediafire.com/?66cr74eey94i4ag - For those who prefer the stock charging algorithm, a USA boot image without charging hacks.

The normal GAPPS package will not fit on our /system. Use this one. Everything that is not included is available in the Play Store.

Mods/Hacks
There are 4 things you can edit in build.prop. If you want, you can edit the file before flashing. Here is what the defaults look like:
Code:
#########################################
## You can tweak the next 4 properties ##
#########################################

# Uncomment to switch internal and external storage
[B]# That means remove the "#" at the beginning of the next line[/B]
# ro.vold.switchablepair=/storage/sdcard0,/storage/sdcard1

# Change to 0 to enable softkeys, 1 to disable
qemu.hw.mainkeys=0

# Defaults to Mass Storage. You can change to mtp
persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage

# LCD density (240 is default)
ro.sf.lcd_density=240

Expanded desktop. Enable it in Settings -> System -> Power Menu. However, it also hides the status bar. I may remove the nav bar once I get confirmation the International version's home button works correctly.

This is really running smoothly, the "torch" app does not work however so I am willing to remove it for now. (I know its related to your camera LIB issues) Sound recorder works great. let me test a couple of things to make sure. Also, I'm glad the "G-Talk" works since that's how I stay in contact with co-workers. This is a work of wonders, recommending this to be announced on XDA portal. Thank you for all your hard work.

Edit : Works great! Wonderful! Expanded desktop works fine.

Should I Wipe Data/Factory Reset after flashing the ROM and Gapps or before? Would it still work the way you posted it?

One way to transfer to your device is to use dropbox. And use " folder downloader for dropbox" to download onto your device downloads, files, photos,etc.

Ok, just tried it it was amazing other than a few relatively minor bugs other than the ones stated. First, bootloop while plugged iñ amd powered down, next google now wont update with the gapps package, says not signed correctly, and i also noticed that the capacitive home button doesnt work on first boot, but works fine after. Otherwise, amazing work and progress! Keep it up man!

Edit: sorry if i should have posted in the dev thread, this was the one i thought would be appropriate

The charging bootloop only occurs when plugged in to your PC. It's a bootloader issue - nothing fixable. I'm looking for a newer GApps package, but most are way too big. The issue is our system partition is so small. I've already taken out the stock live wallpapers. About the button, that's really interesting.

@all I'm really glad you like it. User feedback is what above all makes a developer's day!

Im not a pro but just a guess...have you used a build.prop device id hack to make your device look like a i9000? Just a guess...

    Mevordel and I were actually working together on CM10.1 before he gave away his device but kept it private because we didn't know how far along we would make it with porting CM10.1 and didn't want everybody anticipated for something that might not happen.

    At any rate, I've been working on the 3.0 kernel for the last week or so. I'm using the Aries devices' kernel as a base and porting the Galaxy Player 5 stuff over the correct way, and not with hacks and stuff from the last time I tried the 3.0 kernel a few months back; so I started fresh and one feature after another came along. A few minutes ago I just got the sound working (remember how it was really sped up the last time I tried the 3.0 kernel??) It's fixed now; and it's pretty nice. As for where I am with this, the cameras still aren't working, but I think that's a library issue; not a kernel one. I'm gonna try to remake our device tree as close to the Aries and NexusS devices because they're really far ahead of us in terms of development. Right now, I believe a NexusS or any of the Aries devices' ROMs will boot on our devices with my kernel as long as you modify the .zip to install to our /system partition.

    What works with the kernel so far is:

    2-22: Got it booting + USB (just a black screen)
    2-23: Display, internal AND external sdcard support (it didn't work the last time I tried the 3.0 kernel), touchscreen
    2-24: Converted initramfs over to CM (recovery support, etc..) Thanks Ambrice
    2-25: Merged to 3.0.31 (it was 3.0.8) Fixed RAM 412 MB free on boot, battery driver,
    2-26: Non-working camera
    2-27: Fixed rebooting and powering off
    2-28: Basic sound support (didn't work however, got it working later on)
    3-12: Fixed hwcomposer (should be a lot smoother)
    3-14: Fixed video playback (Netflix works, as well as 1080)
    3-15: 3.0 USB files (I initially used 2.6.35.7 but now we use the latest)
    3-17: Vibrator, overclock (1.2 ghz), merged up to 3.0.68
    3-18: Sensors (accelerometer, compass)
    3-22: Working sound

    I'll try to be adding more features throughout the week as well as working on the device tree

    Ok everyone. I am uploading one last nightly. I have given my player away and will not be able to test new ROMs, so I can't do much more than help with questions. It has been a great year of development and involvement with our small but active community (almost exactly that long), and I truly hope that these devices keep getting better and stay unbricked. :cowboy: Yes, I can't help but pop in every so often, but I will not be updating either this or Chip (unless this last build is horribly broken or something).

    P.S. Although I am not allowed to give details, rest assured that development for our device has far from stopped.

    Edit: Int'l is up. US is building.
    Edit2: Both are up!
    15
    A new build should come some time next week. KOala888 is working on the kernel, and once he is done, I will see if I can work on the camera issues and audio routing. Just so nobody thinks I've left or anything. ;)
