Regarding 1080p playback with ICS are there improvements respect HC?

Onscreen or via HDMI?

I would imagine onscreen isn't improved at all, since people are even reporting issues with 720p in avi and mkv containers.

Via HDMI, I wasn't aware that the TF101 could output 1080p via HDMI. I doubt this is a feature that ICS can add, but rather a hardware limitation that is only resolved by next generation hardware, like the Tegra 3 chip in the TF Prime and future tablets.

OK here is the deal on mkv's and the transformer. The ONLY repeat only app that will allow you to play 720p mkvs on the tablet is dice player with the tegra 2 plugin. I have 4 or 5 loaded on my trans and they play smoothly. As for 1080p they stutter on the transformer. You are absolutely correct that it is hardware related regarding the tegra 2. I had the prime for 2 weeks and it played 1080p's flawlessly with the tegra 3. Was going to keep it but the wifi and gps was driving me nuts. Also the announcement of the new and fixed prime on the horizion with a hd screen is what I am saying.

I am hitting 2500 quads at stock speed right now running a ice cream over honeycomb revolver sandwich and am quite impressed. But I doubt the tegra 2 will ever play 1080p regardless of software. But I have been wrong before.

Own the evo3d and 720p good and 1080p no good there as well.

@Gnufabio, since Roach2010 won't be updating his Prime! ROM, I think I will try yours when it's updated to ICS. I've heard a lot of good things about it so far. Can't wait!

How did you get Face Unlock to work? I've been trying everything I can think of, but nothing has worked so far.

I've had middling success with MX Video Player, but Dice seems like it handles medium action scenes fairly well. Tegra 2 still can't really handle big action at 720p.

While waiting Ive been flashing scenarios of ICS. Stock rooted ICS gave me quads of 1950 and 1975 with android revolution. But here is how I got 2500 quads without going back to stock and rerooting

1. Had revolver 3.11 on the transformer.

2. Flashed MrNago full.zip over the top with no wiping.

3. Rebooted.

4. Rebooted back to recovery and flashed daoist zip with no wiping to fix usb mounting issues according to region which was US for me.

5. Rebooted.

6. Everything seems to be working no force closes.

I sort of did this by accident and flashed without factory reset. Also wiped dalvik and cache. Best mistake ever.... super stable, fast as hell, and root stuck.

That is about what I got earlier too after flashing ICS (2480 I think). Seems fast. I'm excited to see what Gnufabio does with it. So much that I decided not to sell my Transformer and keep it to see how good it is lol.

Try running one mkv through xenonmkv then let me know!!! :D
Not to hijack this thread but changing containers shouldn't make a lick of difference in how it plays. All Xenonmkv does is down-sample audio to stereo, but audio was never really the issue with Tegra 2. Try it if you want, but don't expect any noticeable improvement, likely you'll see none at all.

I will patiently await Fabio's ROM while I play with the OTA a bit more.

The Tegra 2 supports 1080p Video Decoding... :x according to nVidia..

It will be exiting to see what developers do with this, so far I have gotten 2403 on Quadrant with Stock ICS :) .. I bet we can get up to 3000+ on Stock 1Ghz :p

..and after i'll wait Modded Kernel by Blades for push up to 10.000 quadrant as for Prime at 1.7Ghz :p Someone can try an Antutu bench pls? However i see that with newest Nvidia drivers, Tegra 2 reach better score in Quadrant (i'm wrong?)

    And if you like it, consider to buy the donate version in order to offer me a beer:

    If you notice any issue, please post it on the Bugtracker
    I also made up a small wiki, if you want to contribute you're welcome! Write your own page and contribute! If you are a newbie, please read it before. Revolver wiki page.

    • What's the actual version?
      In the second part of the thread's name you can find both the numeric version and the code-version. The former is expressed in this way: branch.version[.subversion]. Usually a subversion consists of a bugfix release. The latter is expressed in this way: AABC[D], where AA is the Android version on which the firmware is based (for example HC or IC), B is the hexadecimal value of the branch, C is the hexadecimal value of the version and D is the hexadecimal value of the subversion.
    • I want to use 3G on my tablet (also with 3g keys). How can I do that?
      Download and flash the plugin "Revolver 3G enabler" from Revolver parts. Now reboot and it should work! More details HERE.
    • Hey mate, I want to use Revolver on my Slider (SL101). Can I?
      Yep, it's possible. Just flash the Revolver Slider compatibility pack on top on Revolver.
    • I want to increase the sensitivity of the touchscreen. What could I do?
      There is an app for that. Give a look here
    • Guys I can't download anything from Revolver Parts, what could I do?
      Sometimes server can have some problems; however if you can't download from the app you can manually download the packages from the Revolver repository.

    Guys, this is an important message.

    Some ETAs:
    • Revolver 4 Alpha: tomorrow, just a re-packed ICS for impatient guys.
    • Revolver 4 Beta: within some days, with some of the Revolver3 features.
    • Revolver 4 Stable: expected for the Saturday 3, March.
    If the ETAs are not respected, please understand that ICS is a whole new operating system. Everything need to be updated!

    Another thing. I'm going to close this thread. With more than 700 pages, there may be confusion with older version. I will create a new thread as soon as a build is available.

    Last thing: avoid to send me any PM, they are quite annoying me. I'm not closing this thread to start a "PM thread".

    It's time to say goodbye to this thread ;)
    I'm sorry to delay again the release date for the first Revolver4 build.
    Asus released a really bugged update, and I'm trying to fix all the problems before publishing it.

    Therefore the Alpha status will be skipped in order to reach the Beta status ASAP.
    Releasing an Alpha product can create a mess, and my internet connection is quite slow.

    This is why I ask you to wait one (or two) more day(s). Trust me, you won't be disappointed of what I'm managing to do.
