MarshMallow 6.0.1 Release​
Asus TF101​

Please note that this version is made for and tested on the TF101 model.



This rom is an aosp based rom with my own additions on top of it.

The main motto of the rom being Kiss. Even though the Meerkat could give you a kiss, it stands for Keeps it Sweet and Simple too
Which means that just like the other K.A.T stuff, the rom's main goal is efficiency, speed/res ponsiveness,
while not adding bloated features that will slow things down :)

Tips

First Install
Make sure you do a format /data the first time you install the rom
(backup your internal storage first if you want to keep something)

The first boot after a rom flash can take a few minutes as ART is slower than dalvik to optimize the applications, but is faster after the 1st time.
(First boot takes ~4-5 minutes without gapps and 10+ minutes with gapps)
Also keep in mind that after a fresh install, it might take a bit of time to get up to full speed as media scanner & google are checking/scanning and restoring stuff.


Bluetooth
Bluetooth might require to be turned on twice before it scans and displays the available devices.

Wallpaper Modes
Different Wallpaper modes have been added in Settings => Display
** Normal (regular android mode)
** Disable System Wallpaper rendering (set as default)
** Disable Wallpaper service

2nd setting will prevent the wallpaper being rendered by the system making things faster and also freeing resources
That's the recommended setting you want to use if you are using a launcher that has internal wallpaper rendering
The Default included Launcher3 has internal rendering
For Nova: Go to its Settings => Desktop => Wallpaper Scrolling => Force, then set a wallpaper.
(You will see a black wallpaper if you're not using a launcher that can do internal rendering, If wallpaper is important and that you want to keep your current launcher, then switch back to the 1st setting)

Youtube
Depending on your network and tablet load, 720p videos might not play or take longer to buffer.
Switch to 480p in that case.
Some videos are also 720p60fps so you might need to switch back to 480p for these too.
You can also try an older youtube version and disable auto updates: youtube-v5.0.21

Google Play Movies
Our current Widevine DRM libs are not compatible in MM.
So you can't play a movie on the tablet with Google Play Movies as it requires that.
Starting a movie to play on chromecast should be fine as the drm will be the chromecast one in that case.

Now On Tap
Now On Tap requires the nano opengapps version, however our default /system partition is too small to accommodate them.
So if you want to install the nano or bigger opengapps version, you'll need to repartition the storage space first using Bigwheelie for extended partitions
Then activate Now on Tap from google now settings

Hardware keyboard layouts
More languages have been added in the default asusec keyboard
Set the keyboard layout through Settings => Language & Input => asusec => setup keyboard layouts
These also allow live switching without reboot with ctrl + space

Global Key Override/Shorcut Mecanism
Available in Settings => Dock => Add Key Override Actions

This will allow you not only to redefine function keys assignment, and other special keys actions,
but you'll also be able to assign global macro actions / app launch to any key + Meta key combination (shift Left or Right , ctrl..)

You can also add multiple actions to one key combination, simply click again on the "+" button for the same key combination.
For example if you want to assign to one key combination a list of action to run before going to bed for example, like: turn wifi off, Bluetooth off, mute sound, and turn screen off, you can do that :)
Note that starting multiple applications with one key is kinda a miss and hit for the moment due to some mecanism in android that seems to prevent applications to start too close to each others.


Storage (fstrim) and Database optimization:
Fstrim is native since 4.3 and will happen in the background if your tablet is idle / sleeping and that your battery is > 70%
There is also a script to run it manually in the rom: /etc/kat/optimizestorage

To optimize the Database: /etc/kat/optimizedb

To run both, open a terminal and run:
su
/etc/kat/optimize

MultiWindow

Multiwindow allows you to split the screen in 2, 3 or 4 panes
you can switch an app back and forth between multiwindow mode and regular mode while it's running



attachment.php


NavBar:
- To switch between full screen and split View you can use the
attachment.php
NavBar Buttons
The app that currently has the focus (or the latest used app if you're on the Desktop) will be used for the main pane (left and/or top depending on the mode and rotation)
And it will lay the remaining most recently used apps in the rest of the available 1-2-3 panes depending on the icon you click

- If you press a multiwindow icon again when in splitview mode, it'll bring the focused app back to fullscreen mode.

- To swap the 2 latest focused apps location / pane , long press on the
attachment.php
NavBar Button

- To change focus simply Tap on the app or use the
attachment.php
NavBar Button
That button can also be used in non multiwindow mode to switch quickly between the 2 most recent apps.


Global Actions:
Actions to switch the app between fullscreen / splitview 2-3-4 panes, swap, or switch between the 2 most recent apps have been added
so you can bind them to a key / key combination with the Global KeyOverride or long press on navbar button too.

Note: Most apps works ok in splitview mode, but some of them might crash or not refresh correctly sometime.


To manually position an app in one of the pane:
For the moment either reorder your apps before clicking on an auto mode icon,
or you can also activate the default Marshmallow Multiwindow mode to get extra icons to positions an app in a specific pane (activate it in developer options )
Then position the apps with the icons from the Recents screen. (default MM recents icons are for 2 or 4 panes)

I'm a little afraid to try, but I know I will

Officially my Transformer is one of the oldest devices I own and should really show its age.

But it just doesn't, it sets itself apart from the two other Tegra 2 devices (Notion Ink Adam and Acer Iconia) by being a thoroughly enjoyable device, which reacts very promptly to all input and still is mechanically perfect with great battery life.

Some hardware ingredients like DRAM and Flash seem to be made of better stuff (some benchmark show twice the memory bandwidth than Acer Iconia and NI Adam and the eMMC is lots better than Acer (Adam is notoriously terrible)), but mostly it must be the constant tweaking you (and Google?) have put in, because the performance only got better and better, even if the applications typically got fatter and fatter and 1GB of DRAM is no longer as plenty as it used to be with Android 2.2.

I surely can't say the same for my Nexus 7, which started being somewhat snappier than the Transformer and turned out pretty bad with LP even after turning off the journalling on ext4.

Marshmallow has disappointed me so far (only Nexus 10 migrated yet), mostly because my standard launcher SPB shell 3D no longer works on it and I just like it better than stock or any other.

And then I just don't see any significant improvements beyond Lollipop or rather CM 12 with all the privacy stuff already included. And I just love the fast task switching, which is part of the multiwindow support and which I have on a keyboard shortcut (hope it comes soon).

Somehow I also doubt that Nougat will be better in any sense except "better" Google integration.

But since I'm very much afraid of operating anything without the latest security patches, I'll just have to make the switch.
And I'm sure it will be as perfect as the current LP by the time Nougat comes out.

Thanks Timduru for making it possible

Thank you. what I've failed to understand, do you need to install a separate root tool? Or is it included in the recommended recovery tool? It's still as i bought it in 2011... Thanks!

Just follow the procedure from the 1st post:
once you have the recovery installed:
the first time: format /data
then install all 3 zips at once: rom + supersu + gapps
then reboot.

then reboot.

It sounds so easy... First I don't really know how to install the recovery (hence, i have been spending 'only' app 7 hours on topic by now). I would assume from PWR+VOL- then Vol+ goes to recovery mode, but the device gets stuck with a android red expression mark. I then tried to install the Easyflasher 0.8.3 and managed to first delete the drivers and installed new universal ones. Rebooted and continue to follow the procedure and the Easyflasher on my Windows tells me i have successfully unbricked my Asus Stock. However, when i reboot, it looks all exactly the same, no data lost, no new installation. Then I could, or should?, flash a recovery. However, if i try to do it from the Easyflasher there is only the old TWRP 2.2.1. available and i fail to make use of the downloaded TWRP 2.8.1.1. CLick the Root, doesn't work either.

Then, the frustration goes up and the progress goes down... please advise and push me in the right direction! MUch appreciated!

Installing the recovery is not really the focus of this thread, and it has been a really long time since I installed on mine ;)

But what I would do, since you seem to have easyflasher and drivers working:
- Install TWRP 2.2.1 from easyflasher
- reboot to that TWRP 2.2.1
- Install the TWRP 2.8.1.1 flashable zip from TWRP 2.2.1
- reboot to the recovery and it should now be TWRP 2.8.1.1

Flashed all 3 zip ROM+su+pico but can't boot to Android.
After the Asus logo screen turns black and nothing happens.
Any ideas?

sounds as if the new kernel didn't flash or something.
What recovery are you using ?

Even if the screen goes black you should get adb working after a few minutes, it's still doing things in the background normally.
Try to grab me a logcat + dmesg at that point.



EDIT: Found the problem, yeah kernel not flashing:
Flash it separatly for the moment: Tim_KatKernel_122_MM6.0.zip

that will be fixed in the next version.

Unfortunately me too.
The only step from install note was the "Format" because of lack of time and data cable to copy everything from internal sd to my pc (only way for me is over the air with My Phone Explorer right now).
Tried 19 & 19b together with SuperSu 2.52 and gapps-arm-pico in one flash.
Backlight of screen is on, but then nothing happens over an hour.

Installing the recovery is not really the focus of this thread, and it has been a really long time since I installed on mine ;)

But what I would do, since you seem to have easyflasher and drivers working:
- Install TWRP 2.2.1 from easyflasher
- reboot to that TWRP 2.2.1
- Install the TWRP 2.8.1.1 flashable zip from TWRP 2.2.1
- reboot to the recovery and it should now be TWRP 2.8.1.1

Sounds like a plan, i tried and Easyflasher tells me it runs Wheelie,NV Flash then 'finished new reboot into recovery'. I do so, but android gets stuck in the recovery with an red expression mark, then it'll boot normal again.

Might it be that root access is blocking it? The Easyflasher root access tells me to first falsh recovery and put the superuser on sd.
I have installed both TWRP and SuperSu but both run into issues: the first tells me 'root is required' then closes, the second tells me 'no SU binary installed' then closes.

I then decided to go for a very crappy 1-click root access, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1689193, with an even worse http://www.4shared.com/postDownload/ja5cFLAL/1-Click_Transformer_Root_11.html. This seems to have succeeded and i got root access (!) and the above described issues on TWRP and SuperSu were not gone.

Then in TWRP i couldn't select the zipfile TWRP 2.8.1, and after telling TWRP i had a TF101 i could select an older version like 2.3, which he was going to download. I had to confirm a path but decided to abort. I then tried to boot recovery but unfortunately, and not as i expected, it run into the same red expression mark. I then decided to run APX mode again and see if easyflasher could access root now. Also negative. Then run normal ABD mode and checked if i could do something with SuperSu, also negative.

So it seems my problem is that TWRP doesn't allow me to select the right zip file and as a result i can't run any recovery... any idea?

UPDATE: going back to apx flash the default TWRP2.2.1 then reboot to recovery succeeds in Easyflasher but the same red expression mark with Android. so also negative

    That button can also be used in non multiwindow mode to switch quickly between the 2 most recent apps.


    Global Actions:
    Actions to switch the app between fullscreen / splitview 2-3-4 panes, swap, or switch between the 2 most recent apps have been added
    so you can bind them to a key / key combination with the Global KeyOverride or long press on navbar button too.

    Note: Most apps works ok in splitview mode, but some of them might crash or not refresh correctly sometime.


    To manually position an app in one of the pane:
    For the moment either reorder your apps before clicking on an auto mode icon,
    or you can also activate the default Marshmallow Multiwindow mode to get extra icons to positions an app in a specific pane (activate it in developer options )
    Then position the apps with the icons from the Recents screen. (default MM recents icons are for 2 or 4 panes)
