And uploaded.

This ROM is an alpha release, so definitely backup your old ROM before flashing.
I had to rewrite the audio library from scratch as our old one just wasn't compatible anymore with 5.1. Lots of work....
It's still not finishes so there are probably some audio issues.

For the moment the biggest bug is that video playback is not working, but I have a pretty good idea what the issue is.

Also Google Photos crashes with "java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No config chosen". I am pretty sure that we also had this error on omni-4.4 and fixed that. Need to check old commits.

In total it feels pretty smooth with one exception. Somehow opening the App Drawer takes a lot of time. Need to check if the annoying animation can be deactivated.

As 5.1 uses ART instead of Dalvik the boottime after an update is pretty bad. Up to 10min depending on how many apps are installed.

I just flashed the new build and got the same fail message, but the tablet booted fine and most items are working as expected.

This is awesome.
Now, I just hope that camera and video works.
The tablet is used by my parents for video calling (Skype etc.) and watching YouTube videos.

If I want to upgrade from omniROM 4.4.2 (February 2014) to 5.1.1, do I not wipe anything at all?

4.4.2 is laggy (as reported by my parents) on that tablet.

Great work

So glad there's still xoom love. As it's an alpha issues are expected. Just reporting that I can't seem to install any gapps package. Wiped everything first and formated data to start with a clean device before copying zip files and flashing. Keeps saying "Error executing updater binary in zip '/emmc/Download/p75xx-gapps-L-5-6-15.zip" Thanks again for the great work and I look forward to future updates.

Spoke too soon. Not sure how but I managed to get it to work.

Others have posted with the same gapps report. When this happened to me, I did another clean install and flashed the stock package from http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/tk-gapps-t3116347. It flashed perfectly and seems to be working fine.

I have a WiFi only Xoom, but I've never heard of WinGray. Is that all WiFi Xooms? I actually won this Xoom in a Twitter contest. It would be awesome if I could keep it going.

    FYI just checked my download stats. This ROM is of all my ROMs for various tablets the by far most downloaded.

    So rest assured that there will definitely be an update in the near future.
    37
    Just out of curiosity..... Has this ROM been discontinued? Haven't seen any update for over a month now.

    No it has not been discontinued. Unfortunately I have not a lot of free time at the moment to work at it.
    For example my weekend started 30min ago. That is Sunday 3pm local time...

    I expect that a new version will be available @End of September.

    Hi all,

    maybe some clarifications about why there was not ROM in September/October.

    If you follow my github closely you probably noticed that I pushed several commits to the xoom repos in September.
    These commits updated the xoom source to the newest available version.
    Unfortunately WiFi has stopped working completely after the update and we didn't know why so I did not release an update in September.

    In early October Marshmallow was released which abruptly ended the search for the WiFi solution, cause why do 5.1 if 6.0 is out.

    As some of you probably know I also release ROMs for Samsung Note 10.1 (2014) LTE and Samsung Tab S.
    As these are my daily drivers I started porting MM to them .

    It took me way longer than expected to release a stable ROM for the Tab S variants, cause this is my first exynos device and nobody has done a vanilla aosp ROM for this device before.

    Over the holidays while I was on vacation, @Manuellama did figure out why the WiFi did not work in September.
    This is awesome and allows us 2 possible things we can do:
    First we can release the September update
    And Second we can start porting MM. Luckily for us @decatf did already the most work for the tegra2 Galaxy Tab 10.1, so at least we know it's doable.

    So to sum up:
    I could have be more transparent about the current state of the development and I am sorry for that.
    However I can fairly say that the development has not stopped but was paused due to the MM release.
    27
    Small update regarding the progress of the Marshmallow port
    It will be based on aosp-6.0 directly and not omnirom.

    Whats already done:
    • Integrated @decatf sources
    • Patched our kernel to support newer android versions to boot
    • Patched init binary so we can boot even with missing kernel features
    • Updated Xoom device tree to support AOSP 6 flags.

    Currently State:
    • It crashes directly after the bootlogo. So I will need to further investigate this...
