NOW THAT WE HAVE OFFICIAL NIGHTLY BUILDS I THOUGHT IT WARRANTED A PROPER THREAD NOT A KANG ANYMORE
CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.0 (ICS), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*
*/

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

SOURCES
General:

What's working?
  • 3G - Make sure you have the correct APN Settings for your carrier/region.
  • HWA Video - No all the formats are supported, Blame NVidia or ... the world - (YouTube does work)

What's not working?

  • Camera - This will only be fixed once we get an ICS Leaked ROM - Period, so stop asking! :)

I want feature X?
No - You will not get it or maybe you will, I have no Idea what feature will get implemented. This is not the place to ask.

First time installing CyanogenMod 9 to your Tablet (3g version), or coming from another ROM:
- Make sure you are rooted. (Plenty of thread available about how to do it)
- Make sure you're running a proper working ClockworkMod-Recovery version 5.5.0.4 not any other version (Recovery[UPDATED]). This is the latest (2012-05-24) that works with the device make sure you flash this recovery via ODIN.
IF YOU DO NOT INSTALL THIS RECOVERY YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO INSTALL CORRECTLY/YOU WILL GET UNKNOWN VERSION ABORTING INSTALL ERROR
- Copy GApps and CM9 ZIPs to your internal SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- DO A DATA WIPE / FACTORY RESET (First Time Users)
- Flash CM9 zip
- Flash GApps zip
- Reboot
- Enjoy!

NOTICE:

IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANY ISSUE WITH THE ROM AND YOU HAVE OVERLCOCKED/MODDED THE ROM DO NOT REPORT THE ISSUE UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THE ISSUE ALSO OCCURS WHEN NOT OVERCLOCKED/MODDED!

If you suffer from a rolling recovery fix available here:

# Catching up on APN updates. If your default APN is missing or inaccurate, be sure to drop a comment on http://goo.gl/aDur and we'll go about adding them to the OS.

If you experience an issue. Provide logs. If you have adb do this:

adb logcat >> logcat.log
adb logcat -b radio >> radio.log (if you experience 3g issues)
adb shell dmesg >> dmsg.log (got wifi issues or weird stuff happening)

If you have a reboot/kernel panic or such.

Get last_kmsg:

adb pull /proc/last_kmsg or if you not near a pc go to terminal emulator :

type su then enter.
cp /proc/last_kmsg /sdcard/

Exit terminal

You can then later extract last_kmsg and post it here.

Or you can download OS monitor here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eolwral.osmonitor.tablet and get logs via the app. That is what I sometimes use personally.

Good idea. Recently found out about the nightlies myself. Do we know something about broken things?

Camera, and highres video playback

This ROM ( or any other ) doesn't have nothing to do with HI-Res videos not working... It's Tegra2 fault and nVidia engineers who designed this chip and deside not to include some CPU instructions.

And for camera we must wait until samsung release their official ICS. After that CM team will just pull out drivers for camera from official build and we will have working cameras.

I know.
But that sort of questions will be asked repeatedly, supplying it in first/second post will probably eliminate most such questions later on

Regarding 720p playback it worked like a charm on both stock- custom HC ROMS and also on CM9 nightlies until a couple of builds ago.
What I meant was that it should be posted, but it sounded more like a question I guess. See that some broken things are posted now. That's good

Using a P7500 with AKOP ICS rom on it.
Just tried to update to update-cm-9-20120524-NIGHTLY-p4-signed.zip

Wiped Dalvik, wiped cache, factory reset.

Install Failure...
Installing update...
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "p4" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "p4"
E:Error in /sdcard/1-CM9/update-cm-9-20120524-NIGHTLY-p4-signed.zip
(Status 7) Installation aborted.

Can someone please advise as to the why this fault is being generated?

Thanks in advance!

I have no AOKP ROM to check at the moment, but my guess is that in the AOKP ROM the "ro.product.device" and "ro.build.product" in the build.props are not set to "p4".

Simple solution is to remove the assert command from the updater-script. That would help you to get CM9 on your tablet.
Once you have the CM9 on your tablet, the two values will be "p4" and you will be able to flash any CM9 nightlies updates without problems.

[EDIT]
Just checked on a stock GT-P7500 ROM, there the values are set to
ro.product.device=GT-P7500
ro.build.product=GT-P7500
So there could be the same problem.

I saw as well in another thread (sorry, don't remember where) that there is a CWM recovery that allows you to flash even if the assert getprop command fails.
[/EDIT]

[EDIT 2]
In latest AOKP ROM the values are:
ro.product.device=p4
ro.build.product=p4

So that means my first assumption is wrong. Still my proposal to remove the assert getprop from the updater-script will work. Or you update to latest CWM recovery.

Strange, my CWM said it was v5.5.0.4 and was installed from this file, ClockworkMod_Recovery_v5.5.0.4_P75xx.tar using Odin v1.85

Followed the instructions you guys have given and installed the file, recovery.tar.md5 using Odin v1.85 and voila... she now works!

Thanks fellows!

Couple of questions, it appears that network time is not working and that I have to set this manually. Is that correct or just me?

Can lockscreen shortcuts be enabled?

Probably would be the case with everyone.
The reason that I have to set mine is that we are doing software development and we have to use a special sim.

Also not working with my Softbank Japan SIM. I had to change the apns-conf.xml with my personal one to get the Softbank APN working.

The Softbank APN settings in the CM9 version do not cover my Softbank SIM card.

I will submit a patch following the instructions in post 1 in the next days.

my question is simple:

why to go for CyanugenMod 9 Nightlies (P7500 3g) if I am already rooted with my stock ROM? in other way: which plus am I getting if I go to CM9 for my tab?

    im nearing completion of p4 with all working. will call upon a few of you to test when im almost there.

    'should' have a test out by tonight/tomorrow night.

    the other remaining tabs will follow once this is done.
    6
    an update,
    im not able to solve the flicker on portrait swiftly. it doesnt happen in JB. so ill forgo a stable ICS rls and move on to cm10.

    ill build out one more experimental for cm9 and upload source changes in to CM so they will be in the nightlies while i prep JB for the new stuff.
    5
    all work has been merged in to CM mainline. they'll show up in the next weekly build or you can grab the latest from droidbasement for now.
    3
    Care to elaborate a little further for us who are being overly cautious. Does factory reset from ROM refers to the Factory Data Reset in the System Settings or a data wipe from CWM (or both)? What's the safest way to wipe for a clean install?

    Thanks!
