STANDARD DISCLAIMER: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. By running this firmware mod, you agree that there is the possibility that you may brick your device and neither myself, XDA nor Viewsonic are responsible for supporting you if that occurs. In this case, it is required that you learn and setup nvflash prior to running this mod.



1. Make 100% sure you are at Bootloader 1.2
2. Recommend using Clockworkmod v3.0.2.8 (Bootloader 1.2) tools for flashing.


These are CM7 based ROMs for gtablet with bootloader 1.2(ZPAD T2 should work. But no confirmation from any one yet). It is an integration of different CM7 based rom build and Clemsyn ver 11 1.5ghz Kernel / Pershoot 1.4ghz Kernel (bootloader 1.2) with some tweak learning from Calkulin's Rom. It is pretty similar to Calkulin+Clemsyn 1.5ghz Froyo Combo VERSION 6, while it is for gingerbread.

All the credit goes to the authors of the based rom and kernel. Special thanks to Roebeet for his excellent works on gtablet.

Features:

1. Overclocked by default (max frequesy adjusted by battery level) (For Clemsyn's kernal, check on his original kernel post on how to undervolt with pimpmycpu)
2. Tweaked internal storage & SD card read speeds
3. Annoying ads in programs are blocked
4. Calkulin's battery saving script

Issues:
1. usb pc mount does not work on Clemsyn's kernel

For those who want to build the CM7.1 RC1 or nightly build, take these steps:
1. grab the cm7.1 build, grab pershoot/clemsyn GB kernel for BL1.2, grab the build_script from my cm7.1 rc0 rom.
2. merge the pershoot kernel ans system directory into the cm7.1 build. replace any files if it already existed. replace the build_script with the build_script in my rom.
3. zip them and you should have a cm7.1 for BL1.2 with pretty much the same as BL 1.1. Make sure the directory structure is correct in the zip file.
4. you could use this trick for pretty much all the GB roms based on cm7 mixed with any GB kernel

Warning: this is not and not intend to be a detail instruction. you should at least have certain degree of knowledge about what is going on with this and what this is all about to build a rom. If you brick your device by any chance, I am definitely NOT the right one you would look after. If you are not sure, wait someone else to build the rom for you.

Downloading now! Thanks!

Feels good. It is very smooth. Quadrant scores 3400 out the gate. Very cool.

Is the nvrm_daemon edited in this rom to bring the refresh up to 60?

Wondering if I still need to install this to take the refresh up.

For those with CM7.0.3 you may want to try this version of nvrm_daemon.

I took original file from my CM7.0.3 stable ROM and modified it to have 60Hz update rate.

A nice option for 4349 users who don't want to risk jumping back to 1.1. Thanks for setting these up!

I've been requesting that the cyanogenmod devs actually consider doing this, as well. I also heard a rumor (and it's just a rumor) that a new stock ROM is in the works, and will likely replace 4349 and be on 1.2 as well. So I personally think it's in our best interest to start moving to 1.2 (plus that's likely to be what any HC ROM will be on).

Already done, just not here on XDA. I started posting again after a 2 month hiatus, but I'm not moving my 1.2 ROMs here except as a link (and I'm not permitted to do that).

Google "gtablet 1.2 firmware" and you'll find them. :D

Brilliant Corners. It feels just like froyo with some tablet tweeks. The only UI diffference I notice in tnt base roms is the notification bar and system settings.

so on slatedroid?
i only see 7 roms on there. And i mean a froyo NON TNT based rom. you have one over there?

Brilliant Corners, as just mentioned, and Century Eyes. The latter used to be "gAdam" here on XDA but I ported it to 1.2 in April. It's the Notion Ink Adam EDEN UI, ported to the GTAB.

I don't think anyone's ported the zPad interface to 1.2, tmk. Although technically the newer zPad ROMs are 1.2-based themselves. I mention the Adam a lot, but I keep forgetting that the zPad is almost identical to ours and they moved to 1.2 a few months back, I believe.

how hard is it to make a zpad rom compatible with 1.2?

is it hard to port roms, i kinda want to start learning. Im decent at themeing.

The original zPad (Wifi) and our GTAB have identical hardware. Rothnic used to create mods of the zPad firmware, and it was mainly rooting it, altering the language to English and tweaking the apps as needed. But all the hardware worked as-is, including the camera. The original zPad firmware was 1.1 dev branch based, just like our GTAB was.

I heard that the zPad T2 is, I believe, 1.2 based. But don't quote me on that as I've never messed with that fimware (last update was in March, as per a quick Google search). If Malata managed to create a full GB or HC ROM for the zPad, we should be able to easily port that to the GTAB, easier than even the Adam.

As for ease, it's mainly a lot of trial and error, and lots of nvflashing when you soft-brick it. Even with the zPad, there's build.prop changes and app changes to make it more English friendly. Plus Gapps, of course.

Beastly + Clemsyn Kernel is Froyo and based on 1.2 bootloader. Another great one from the Adam Developers.

Hey Dave! I haven't tried Beastly yet (backing up BoS this very moment)...maybe it's time?

I personally had both Calkulin's + Clemsyn and Beasty's + Clemsyn for my daily use for a while. Both rom perform supper well. supper snappy. the only problem for me is froyo does not support "wifi location" and it is unfixable as far as I know. I also get excited about the honeycomb rom for gtablet and use Roebeet's great BOS for a while. The UI is beautiful and it is reasonably stable and perform after 4.0. However, it is too laggy for my taste because of the lack of opengl support. The reason why I compile these roms are: I want the speed of those 2 great froyo roms. I also want to use a lot of applications that need wifi location support and I want to stay on 1.2.
The quadrant score of CM7.1RC + Clemsyn's is very close to the above 2 roms (around 4000 in my test). give CM7.1RC + Clemsyn or CM7.1RC + Pershoot a try if you like the speed of those 2 froyo's rom. You will be surprised by the performance of these 2 roms.

Thanks for the quick comparisons, I been on BoS and loving it but I'll try these out real quick for a day or two just to see how nice they are. And what you're saying is that these 2 do support wifi location right?
