Mic is broken on all ax0x Iconias in 4.2 and 4.3, I don't think its getting fixed any time soon, if ever. Odd since it works on the thrive, and I used the same audio for that too.

Well.. I would not even have a clue why that is.. amazing how the new roms effect the Hardware.. might be back to zero null then since I use the voice part for long work emails... although this is very stunning and layed out just perfectly.. I tried soundabout and that didn't even work for the mic..

I meant carbon B3, it just vanished and I was hoping someone had it on their SD card still lol

Whoops. Absolutely forgot about Carbon B3 that was up briefly then disappeared. Sadly I never got my hands on that either.

Also slightly off topic I've now run into the /data issue that someone else did not too long ago. I posted in the thread in the general area on what's happening on my end.

Unless you use the boot.IMG I posted to fix that, it'll likely always happen. And I keep forgetting to do that zip lol

Yep. I got a feeling unless if you tell me differently that I think the eMMC on mine is faulting out. Thankfully I'm still under replacement warranty on mine so I'm going to try and get this swapped out.

I posted a bit more detail in this thread. Dunno if you saw it or not.

Well that boot image is only for 4.2, it won't work well if at all with 4.3, I thought it happened on carbon not jellytime.

Hard to say what happened but if its not letting you flash anything at all it doesn't look good.

I just flashed the boot.img from the Jellytime ROM via Fastboot. Issue still there in TWRP. The good news.. kinda.. is that I'll be mailing out this A100 out and will have an gift card in the next few days. I say kinda to the news since more then likely I'll be gone from contributing around here on the A100 stuff. :(

Sadly for me where I purchased it no longer carries the A100. I can get the A110 but sadly I can see there isn't much ROM development for it. So now it's down to me deciding on which tablet I'm going to get now.

If storage isn't an issue, the new N7, if it is, Samsung tab. That's my choices if I ever go buy another 7" tab. 10", the new Sammy should be quite nice.

The new N7 is very nice from the time I played with it at Best Buy. However all the stuff I've heard about the light leakage has me that concerned that it might be off my list just because of that. Well and storage too. And as far as I can tell besides a slight bump in processor and IR there's next to no difference between the Galaxy Tab 2 and 3 at the 7 inch level. Well okay the GT2 does have far better dev support right now due to it being around longer. I still don't get why Samsung hasn't upgraded the screen since they've been using the same one for what seems like forever.

It is a bummer the A110 didn't get much for dev support beyond rooted. Pretty sweet processor on it (Tegra 3 quad core) and pretty similar to the A100 feature wise (micro SD, micro/mini/whatever HDMI, etc). Then again it could be worse I could be considering one of those god awful trash tablets by Hisense or some other fly by night company. Or the ASUS MeMo for that matter which is one big "why does this thing even exist" tablet.

I've been seeing good things about the hisense, I guess for its price, anyways. My mom got the tab 2 and its nice and all, certainly better then the a100 lol. I know nothing about that MeMo thing other then no one cares about it.

Light leak doesn't bother me much outside of watching movies, my excite has a little on one upper side, a few inches I never see until I watch a video at night, then its slightly annoying but I get used to it after a few minutes. The DNA has some from the backlight on the buttons, but you have to look for it at an angle lol

I suppose if I got one, given money being non existent and I should buy one anyways :rolleyes: the hisense might be an alright deal for a little dev device. I'd consider the a110 but yeah...Acer never corrected their mistake on the A100 so I dunno if I'd ever trust them again, but would also make a nice little dev device too.

Given I have the 10" tegra3 excite and the even more powerful DNA, I can't go back to anything less then a tegra3 or S4 krait.

Yeah I'm swinging towards the Tab 2 myself namely due to it being fairly inexpensive and nearly the same specs ass the Tab 3. Also I just noticed that the Tab 2 7 inch actually has the IR Blaster. Not that I'd use it much as the DirecTV tablet app can do the same switch the channel stuff etc as the Samsung app has. But nice to have it there.

That's a bummer about Acer as well. Their tablets tend to have some dang nice specs on them but it seems like they haven't learned from the few mistakes they have made (eMMC being one of them). I just looked at the Hisense Sero Pro 7 inch. To be honest on paper it looks like a pretty nice tablet. Looks like it's running near stockish Android 4.2 and there's already an debloated/tweaked ROM as well.

Dang it now you got me debating between this and the Tab 2.

Personally I'm leaning to the hisense, but I've always leaned to lower development devices, the tab 2 has plenty of crap, is have no need to build for it, the hisense, there may be fun to be had with it. Hard to say as I've never used one, and that may break it for me, like the a100 screen angles, if I had seen that before buying, I never would have gotten one and gone with Samsung instead.

Yeah the tab 2 has a blaster, my mom has never used it once lol. Hers is still fully stock, unrooted, there hasn't been a reason to mod it yet.

This review on Engadget is pretty promising. The headphone issue isn't a killer for me as to be honest I never really used headphones back on my A100. Their comments on the display however is VERY encouraging. It looks like several Wal-Mart stores in my area carry this tablet. I might stop by one soon to see if they have it on display and "kick the tires" to see if I like this or not.

Hmm the headphone thing may be an issue as I use headphones more then the speakers, but IMO the review of the screen just might outweigh that lol. Not like I'm getting one anytime soon, though, I'm saving up for my next phone. By saving up I mean not selling/trading/bartering for weeks to manage the money for it.

    As good a place as any to post this.

    Pio-masaki.com is being shut down due to a Cease and Desist order sent against the host by Google and homeland security. I have no idea why, however until this is sorted out, and to avoid any possible or further legal issues, the site is down for a period of time that can be a day or forever. This includes any and all ROMs, kernels, gapps packages, for any and all devices, that were hosted on pio-masaki.com.

    I apologize in advance for this as I know some ROMs are only available at pio-masaki.com, but it is out of my hands, the host has to consider their own safety, and has my 100% agreement and backing in taking down the site until the matter is resolved.

    As this is a very large matter, and one that has us incredibly scared, I'm retreating from android for the time being, until I know what it was that I did that was illegal, and may return once this is cleared up and blows over.

    After this is cleared up the hosting for pio-masaki.com may still remain offline as the hoster has some personal issues with me at this point and may or may not continue to host for me, should we resolve our differences it may return.

    If by some chance Google or whoever sent the C&D notices this, I urge you to contact me as I was responsible for what was hosted, and would genuinely like to know what the issues are so we can get them resolved immediately.

    I will be making similar postings or editings to any other ROM threads that link to pio-masaki.com.


    What is CarbonROM?

    CarbonRom is an aftermarket firmware based on the Android Open Source Project. We are dedicated to fast, stable, and feature-filled roms, honesty and communication with our users, and openness with our code. We like frequent builds, with the very latest and greatest hardware support and fixes. We strive to not only provide you with the best rom we can build, but also to give back to the Android community and our fellow developers. For us, this is about creating something we can be proud of and hope you will enjoy.

    Please feel free to look at, build, and use our code on CarbonDev GitHub.

    We would like to thank CyanogenMod for their device trees, framework/settings mods and their code that was incorporated into this project. We also extend our gratitude to the devs whose code that we have incorporated. Proper authorship has been maintained and can be viewed on our repository.

    Special thanks also go to Slim Rom for some of their features, PA, AOKP, and anyone else we may have borrowed commits from that hasn't been mentioned here. If you feel you have been unfairly left out, please - let us know.

    While we make every effort to test these builds as much as possible, we are not responsible for anything that may happen to your device, family, pets, or perception of reality. We ask that you do your part to know your device and know how to recover from problems before you flash! If you have questions, ask your fellow users or ask us in #teamcarbon on freenode IRC.

    1.6 is a pretty big update for us! Check out the changelog on our goo.im page for more, but here are the highlights:

    -PIE
    -HALO
    -Floating Application windows (long press app in recent apps list)
    -Lock screen rotation is back
    -Dark Carbon! Huge props to Slim Roms for coming up with this unique and awesome feature.
    -Lockscreen theming
    -CM skinny battery is back!
    -Volume key lock on silent mode option
    -Backup tool - if you're flashing a new version of Carbon and already have the required version of gapps installed, it will be backed up and restored during install. This applies to system apps and custom host files as well. Please note that you should only dirty flash from Carbon to Carbon. It's ok if it's another version or a nightly - just not over other roms. Super handy for you crack flashers. Make sure you've got the most recent Gapps though, and if you're flashing from a factory reset, you'll still need to install it after install of course.
    -Long pressing the "clear recents" button clears the cache
    -AOKP's awesome new navbar settings
    -NFC polling mode for when you want to keep your screen off and scan tags
    -MMS and call "breathe" feature. Makes the notification icon fade in and out.
    -Mute dings when changing volume
    -Disable/enable CRT effect on screen on/off.
    -3rd party keyboard bug fixed
    -deodexed again
    -stability and speed enhancements
    -a million other little things as well - we basically don't even sleep anymore.
    *not all features are available on the A100 tablet.

    FAQS
    If you didn't read the bugs list below, go down and read that now, asking the same questions over and over is a trademark of xda and I hate it, please read the change log and bug list before posting questions or reporting issues.

    Q. I want to use this build(s) as a base for my ROM, or I want to host/re release it in another country/forum, can I?

    A. You may, but only if you send me a PM about it first. I've had a bit of trouble with people taking credit for my work, and I'm getting sick of it. I don't mind sharing and whatnot, but taking my build, adding a build.prop tweak and releasing it on another forum with no mention of my name is not acceptable. As for re releasing on another forum, you may if you just shoot me a link to the post about it, I would rather you link directly to this thread if possible. For those posting in forums of other languages (I know some users might in Russia, for example, use my ROMs) feel free to post for your native languages, and please include a link here also.

    Q. I want to report an issue, can I just post it in your thread without reading or doing any basic troubleshooting, googling, reading or wiping?
    A. Well you CAN, you may be ignored or flamed for it. Please read above, and please read the Bugs and Change Log lists before reporting anything. Please flash a clean download, flash a clean wipe, and don't restore stuff from TiBu, thats basic troubleshooting, check if the issue persists, if it does, then feel free to post about it.

    Q. Is this daily driver ready?
    A. Can't answer that, what a person needs from their phone varies from person to person, what I may consider fine for my use may be 500 kinds of broken for another user. Example, I don't use my camera often, maybe once a month, and my BT has never been turned on for the last 5 devices, for me broken BT audio and camera doesn't make it a non daily driver ROM. Please read and decide for yourself if features included outweigh the broken, or if broken things are required for your comfortable use of your device.

    Q. How can I build my own versions?
    A. I'm not going to write a guide, I did write one for CM9 which is 99.99% still a working guide aside from source urls for updated jellybean. Otherwise there are plenty of very well written guides on how to build ROMs, individual questions about build it can be asked here if you wish as this is a development thread.

    Q. Can I use -insert kernel name here-?
    A. You can probably use any kernel you want, but WiFi and such won't work. If you don't mind no WiFi feel free to use any kernel that will boot.

    Q. Your files all download as index.php!
    A. This happens on certain browsers, namely the stock browser and Chrome. You can either use another browser (naked and dolphin don't do this) or simply rename the file to something useful, like "piostotallyepicawesomesaucedrizzledromthatrocksyo urass.zip"

    Bugs:
    MIC doesn't work
    Camera crashes when you change resolutions
    WiFi may not connect after being turned off, needing a reboot to come back up
    Google Search doesn't work (no MIC)
    Headset MIC also doesn't work
    ROM may get stuck booting, powering off and on will have it boot again, not sure where this is coming from.

    More, I'm sure.

    Ok 4.3 boots, its pretty unusable as the SystemUI is constantly crashing. So far, what I can see is:

    Sound appears busted, no screen taps are heard
    WiFi does work, at least it turns on and shows APs
    HW Acceleration is in full effect, much smoother then 4.2 ever was
    Storage is all messed up, not sure whats working or not there yet

    That's all I've had time to play with.
