Ok, here's what I've been tinkering with for the last week or so, its a lightly modded CM9 base ROM. It's original intention was to be a ready to rock flash for my device, with all my apps and tweaks and whatnot already in place, so I could flash and go without having to setup all my stuff again.

This is based on that idea, minus most of the apps and whatnot.

I present Aoikaze Alpha 3!
Still a work in progress, but I felt a broader test base might be needed to find any oddities my tweaks may have caused.

Current ROM base:
Alpha 4 released 7-8-12

Updates:
Forgot to mention, this does have working rotation lock!
7-9-12: As per notsointeresting's suggestion, and a few complaints of dev-host's reliability lately, I setup androidfilehost to hold my stuff, I'll be slowly migrating everything over, then using dev-host as a mirror.

What is this based on?
This release is based on CM9 Alpha 4, I chose to rebase on this version as it should contain almost, if not all, fixes ghman, waydownsouth and the rest of those awesome devs have completed. I have not changed any of the source in favor of stability and reliability.

What does this come with?
Various build.prop tweaks, some apps such as:
Titanium Backup
Es File Manager
Epic Blue CM9 theme (thanks stetson!)
Apex launcher
All apps are the free versions, no warez here!
All extra apps are in /data/app so you can remove uninstall them without TiBu or anything else.
Init.d scripts for cleaning up the DB, permissions and cleaning the cache. They are named for what they do and sit in /system/etc/init.d for anyone who wishes to remove them.
Build.prop changes are marked for anyone wishing to remove or change them.
Did not include changes for it to be seen as an A500, it's still marked A100.

What does this NOT come with?
No paid for apps!
Does not include scripts that require script manager or any other app to run, which included the crossix mount swap and CPU Sleeper, both can not be run with init.d. Next release I may include them in /system/bin and include script manager for running them.
No extra bloat, no added sounds, wallpapers or anything else, just as it comes from CM.
Gapps not included as per CM's policy.

What else is planned for this ROM?
Currently working on a new method of calling script during sysinit that modifies the ram disk with more options for when a script will be run, right now it just runs everything at once, and can clash with anything else going on at the same time. I've tested this a few times and it still doesn't work properly, so if I get it working, this is will likely be alpha 4. It also means any init.d script can be set for anytime from early boot (literally as soon as the kernel takes over) to GUI showing up, to running before shutdown. It will allow an almost infinite ability to time when and how a script can/will be run without the need for changing the ramdisk (in the boot.img) anymore.

After that, I'm looking at theming the ROM, anyone who wants to help or even do it, please feel free to offer, I have no idea how to do this yet.

Thanks!

Please read the OPs.

ezterry's Kernel
Again, please read all of his information. Kernel is not supported on CM9, so while it may work, it may have issues. I've not done extensive testing with his kernel on Aoikaze.

Required:

Gapps
Required for Play Store and misc framework (like gmail sync etc.)

ROM:
Aoikaze Alpha 3
I hope you read all that crap in the previous 2 posts before asking questions or reporting bugs :p

I tried this, but unless I did something wrong, I didn't see any of the things that it said it came with. I wiped everything, and flashed then flashed gapps. Still nothing.

The only things you'll see is the apps. The scripts run at boot so you won't see anything from them. Or did you mean the apps don't show up?

The apps didn't show up... no big deal though cuz I just flashed over the cm9 nightly without a wipe and all my apps and data were still there... the only bug I ran into so far is the volume buttons are still stuck in landscape mode... also, the screen rotation lock switch on the side of the tab is working as well otherwise its working good so far. Here's what I got from just flashing without wipe;

Flashed Aoi kaze and EZterry's, no issues so far. Running at 1504 and running CPUsleeper battery life is comparable to stock.

It'll get better after it settles for a couple days. Not insanely better but better lol.

Hey there. I see you're using Dev-host. Tried downloading had issues (not only this ROM) . personally I'd like to recommend androidfilehost.com , its always maintained, never seems to slow down and with an account you get unlimited storage/bandwidth, etc.
I use it as my main file host for Android now.
I'll continue trying to download from here though. Just very slow,and keeps stopping.
I'm excited to see your modifications from cm9 anyhow

Thanks for the suggestion, this the first I've heard of DH giving problems and I hear it 3 times just today, so I guess its time to mirror.

Well, some updates ran and now getting random reboots, what info do you need before I wipe and reflash?

Sent from my Acer Iconia Tab A100 using xda app-developers app

What was updated? Still runs rock solid for me never a hiccup but I'm switching between this, kuroikaze and jellybean and restoring back, so I can't say its a solid week or whatever of running. I'm flashing 20 times a day, no I'm not exaggerating. For every alpha build number posted there is probably 5-10 personal builds that no one ever sees lol. Just depends how many tries it takes to get what I'm doing right.

Also, just wipe cache dalvik and data you can leave system alone most likely.

Weather Channel and Facebook updated, I cleared dalvik and cache then fixed permissions and rebooted, still shutdown and rebooted after a couple of minutes. Though the latest reboot I didn't restart CPUsleeper and hasn't rebooted. The funny thing is that I was going to try to post a battery screenshot in the morning but this hosed that up.

Is there a log that shows what caused the reboot? I ran log at from the terminal and got a huge screen of jibberish.

You'd have to catch it when it reboots, so basically sit there logging until it happens. Not real fun, and random reboots are hard to figure out because of how...random...they are. Leave CPU Sleeper off, and see if it still doesn't reboot.

This wouldn't bee too hard, since it reboots within minutes. Haven't timed it, but it wasn't long.

adb logcat > logcat.txt

that will dump it into a file instead of flooding the screen.

CTRL C will cancel it.

If it is CPU Sleeper causing it, I'll (or you can) forward it to eugene for inspection.
