No-name CM10.1 nightlies

Welcome to the No-name CM10.1 nightlies ROM.


Features:
- No fuzz, stable CM10.1-based ROM for the TF101.
- Timduru's wonderful KAT kernel built in
- Can play 720p MKVs over wifi using Dice Player (and similar) if OCed to 1.4GHz (see details on OCing below)
- Support for battery-dock indicator
- Up to date, nightly builds, with change-logs.
- Linaro builds available too.
- Works with PPP widget from the Play Store.
- Native support for USB and SD-card dock storage.
- TabletUI mod available.
- Experimental TF101G support.

We'll do our best to keep it working, stable and fix issues as reported, but whoever feels like contributing should feel free.
Pull requests welcome.

No-name parts with extra features can optionally be installed from market.
If you feel like donating, you can install Straitjacket which is my paid app with some extra features. Plus it might give you a warm fuzzy feeling for being a good guy.



Installation:

If coming from any non-4.2.x/CM10.1-based ROM, a factory reset is very much recommended.

(0. Backup your existing ROM)
1. Decide if you feel experimental. Linaro or normal build?
2. Download latest nightly to device.
3. Download special TF101 gapps linked below. (Choose only one)
4. Boot into recovery. Use TWRP, not CWM, as CWM doesn't support 4.2 ROMs properly.
5. Flash ROM. (This also wipes /system and any mods you already have.)
7. Flash special TF101 Gapps.
8. Optionally flash trackpad and/or tabletUI mod. (For tabletUI-mod: Do read below!)
9. Ensure you wipe /cache and dalvik-cache.
10. Reboot.

Basically, the normal procedure for any ROM.


Updating:

Updating from a previous build does not require a factory reset and will in no way delete any user-data or apps.

Be sure to flash ROM and to reflash gapps otherwise you will lose your current Google-account.

(0. Backup your existing ROM)
1. Download latest nightly to device.
2. Boot into recovery.
3. Flash ROM. (This also wipes /system and any mods you already have.)
4. Flash special TF101 Gapps.
5. Optionally flash trackpad and/or tabletUI mod.
6. Ensure you wipe /cache and dalvik-cache.
7. Reboot.


Downloads

TF101 (Wifi only) ROM available here:
- nexfiles
- dlumberg's mirror

Experimental TF101G ROM available here:
- nexfiles

NOTE: These require TWRP for TF101G to be flashed. a_sh_ has you covered.

Optional trackpad mods::
- nexfiles
- dlumberg's mirror
- changes pointer-mode, but wont inverse scrolling direction of trackpad.

Gapps available here:
- Special TF101 gapps by dlumberg & josteink.
- dlumberg's mirror


Thanks to:

- The Cyanogenmod team, for all the goodies they keep on delivering, across devices.
- RaymanFX, for a CM-compatible device-tree for the TF101.
- Timduru, for KatKernel which keeps this thing stable and functional.
- Auto-patcher, for tabletUI mod.
- ShevT and a_sh_, for TF101G support.


Linaro?

So you are asking "What's Linaro anyway?". Good questions. To learn more, you can head to the Linaro. Since that is a big, big page with lots of technical stuff, I'll be nice and provide a brief explanation:

- Linaro makes an alternative toolchain which offers extra optimization-options not found in the "normal" Android build-chain. These optimizations should make the resulting build/ROM faster.
- But these optimizations are not entirely proven yet, and there is some debate about compatibility-related side-effects.
- These means that the resulting build may be less stable and/or less compatible with Android-software than builds produced using the normal build chain.

Is Linaro for you? It works for me. If you feel very conservative, it's probably best to avoid it.

If you still can't decide, you can check out this thread which dlumberg was nice enough to bring up. :)


TabletUI mod

In the ROM's download folder, for some releases you will find matching tabletUI mods availble for download.

Do note that these mods are created from the ROM itself and must be exactly matched.

That means that if your tabletUI mod is dated 20130428 and tagged "linaro", the only ROM that mod was created for was the 20130428 linaro build and no other build what so ever.
A mod made for the linaro build isn't supported when applied to the standard build and vica verse. A mod made for one date should never be used on a build created on any other date.

These mods are highly specific and needs to be treated that way. If you are mixing things and having any sorts of issues, there's nothing I can or will do about that. You have been warned.


On over-clocking

Don't use SetCPU or other third party tools. They are not needed, as the ROM has built in OC-controls. Using such tools may cause a conflict and in worst case possibly RRs and SODs.

To unlock the OC controls, go to System settings, About tablet, scroll down to build number, and tap that repeatedly until the system responds with "You are now a developer".

Exit and re-enter settings. You should now have a section called "Performance". Here you can enter a submenu called "CPU". Using this is the supported and recommended way to do over-cloking.


Issues?

Check the Github issue-tracker. They may be reported already. If not, feel free to report them.
https://github.com/josteink/device_asus_tf101/issues?state=open

Some issues are reported and closed, but have known workarounds:
https://github.com/josteink/device_asus_tf101/issues?labels=workaround+available&page=1&state=closed

If not there, you can also check or ask in the thread. Most issues will probably benefit from public discussion.

Please do not PM me for technical support. You wont get it.

Other questions:

- "These are the same builds you posted in RaymanFX's thread, right?"
- Yes they are.

- "Bleeding edge... Does this include cherry-picks?"
- No. Only regular CM updates which has passed gerrit code review, just like the official nightlies. We're bleeding edge. Not extra bleeding edge.

- "What makes this different from RaymanFX's 0.8 Work In Progress ROM?"
- This ROM is based of his work, but he hasn't updated his sources in a long while. With the kernel being replaced by a non-Rayman kernel and him not really updating it anymore, I felt it would be wrong to keep posting it in his thread. As we keep making changes, I expect less and less of his original work will remain.

Thus I felt it was time to give. Not to mention, now people have easy to locate downloads and up to date instructions in the first post.

If the download site is incredibly slow now, it's probably because a world of Galaxy Nexus users is hammering the same server for the Ubuntu Mobile previews.

Bad timing on my part, I guess :)

Will try...

No factory reset/wipe data needed? Even when coming from stock/arhd?
Is picasa sync working? On my NS I have to flash a modified camera.apk to get it?

Thanks

From anything not CM10.1 I would recommend factory reset.

Re: [ROM] [4.2.2] No-name CM10.1 nightlies - Standard & Linaro

Josteink, good to see the new thread.

Did an upgrade from your 421.
It placed my files in a legacy folder, all seems to run fine.

422 definitely runs slower though.

Do you think that's a result of upgrading instead of a full wipe?

Also, what are you seeing in 422 that makes it a good update.

I really didn't see much change besides the phablet interface, which I'm not sure I like.

I'd really like to know your opinion.

Thanks.

I've had roughly the same performance in 4.2 as in 4.1. No major difference once the kinks and kernels got worked out. You can try a full wipe. I'd definitely recommend that, but I can't promise wild boosts in performance either.

The "phablet" interface takes some getting used to, but once you get there (at least once I got there), I've found myself to prefer it over the old one. The best way I can describe it is that after a while it feels more like a real Android-tablet now and less like a Windows-95 based tablet. YMMV.

Apart from that, things I like in 4.2.x which you didn't have in 4.1.x would definitely be the lock clock (CM10.1 cLock) and other lock-screen widgets. That, and abilty to add user-accounts, which sounds neat, but I don't need it.

Apart from that (on my phone), stock CM camera (which is useful on a phone) now also includes HDR mode, and they just keep on adding things on a daily basis.

I like that. CM10 is pretty much "done", and nothing new happens there, but CM10.1 has a lot of action these days.

You can feel it moving. You can feel you are on the bleeding edge :)

My 2 cents

It comes with a forked KatKernel by default.

I see no reason flashing Tim's version shouldn't work, but I haven't tried yet. Will double check later this evening.

I don't know about Tim's version neither, but this combo does work on my system: no SOD in the last hour.
That's a first! Up to now the only kernels that work were Rayman's:good:
I'm missing EOS center though:(

Sorry about the slow server.

Official Ubuntu should be up now and I've removed my mirror, so hopefully we'll get some proper juice back again :)

Re: [ROM] [4.2.2] No-name CM10.1 nightlies - Standard & Linaro

Is better than eos 4?

Inviato dal mio GT-N7100 con Tapatalk 2

I'm obviously biased :)


Really though. Team EOS4 is very polished ROM and Timduru is doing an excellent job with it. Respect all the way.

Me though, I like CM-based ROMs and thought it would be nice if there were at least one maintained CM10.1 build for the TF101.

I think it's pretty good and it's my daily driver ;)

    [ROM] [4.2.2] No-name CM10.1 nightlies - Standard & Linaro

    If you don't mind could you explain something for me then...I have

    Using Total Commander as my file explore, I go to the "home/root" screen this is what I see

    SD-Card Total Commander shows the path as /storage/emulated/0
    and
    SD-Card (2) Total Commander shows the path as /storage/sdcard1 (when I initially downloaded my ROMS and stuff, I put them on the physical SD card...this is where they are appearing.

    If I go into /storage these are the folders I see

    emulated
    sdcard0
    sdcard1
    sdcard2
    usbdisk0
    usbdisk1

    Is it just me or does this seem unnecessarily messy? I'm not sure if this is a DEV issue or not, but thanks for your help! It seems to be a stable 4.2.2 ROM thus far.

    Ok, so here is a rundown:
    sdcard1 is the microSD
    sdcard2 is the dock SD
    usbdisk0&1 are the two USB ports.

    sdcard0 is the internal storage for the current user (also /sdcard/)

    /storage/emulated/0/ is the primary user (only SuperUser). This is mounted as /sdcard/ and /storage/sdcard0/ when logged in.

    If you add users, the second user has data stored at /storage/emulated/10/. When they are logged on, this folder is mounted at /sdcard/ and also /storage/sdcard0/

    Additional users will be added in the following order in the /storage/emulated/ directory:
    1st user - 0
    2nd user - 10
    3rd user - 11
    4th user - 12
    5th user - 13
    9
    Just to let you know: Ubuntu upgrade completed. Most things seems to have survived quite well, including the TF101 android build-setup.

    Also: I've gotten word from ShevT about the changes involved, so I'm now working on getting the TF101G builds back up.

    All in all, should (hopefully) be smooth sailing ahead now (unless I just jinxed it) :D
