Anyone know if the Cyanogenmod Installer will be available for this tablet? I would rreally like to try CM11, but I don't want to install a recovery and all of that myself. Or does anyone have a good guide for doing just that, installing recovery etc.?

Working except videoplayer crashes when using software decoding. Happenes with any player i tried.

Edit: Works with moboplayer. Probably a problem with players that aren't fully adapted to 4.4 yet?
Too bad because Rockplayer is the only player streaming my videos over wireless without stutter.

cyanogenmod installer won't be coming from FXP as this is an unofficial port.

This is the fastest rom i have use so far. Webbrowsing is so smooth!
Keep up the ggod work. This seems very stable for such an early release.

    bootloop temporary workaround

    The bootloop problem on some pollux_windy is definitely related to SELinux being set to enforcing (http://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/c/54324/). SELinux policies are missing some allow rules for windy and need to be updated for this problem to be fixed. I'm looking into it but I'm quite unfamiliar with SELinux that I don't use on any of my linux machines...

    A temporary fix for this problem is to set SELinux to permissive again until root cause is found.
    To do so you can compile a bootimage with SELinux set to permissive in the kernel cmdline (the same as it was in 20131220 nightly) but you'll have to reflash it after each update or even recompile it if needed by the changes made into nightlies.

    A better solution is to use an init.d script to set SELinux to permissive on boot and an addon.d script to survive nightlies updates.

    This is what the attached cwm zip I made is doing, it copies the init script 10selinuxpermissive to /system/etc/init.d/ witch sets SELinux to permissive on boot, and the addon.d script 51-selinuxpermissive.sh to /system/addon.d/ that backups/restores the init script before/after an update so you don't have to reflash the zip each time (only if you format /system manualy).

    When the root cause will be fixed you'll just have to delete these two files to run SELinux in enforcing mode again.

    AudioFix test

    Hi,

    I have played around with the Audio Subsystem a bit and I think I fixed the audio cracks and stutter in most cases (The only case where it still occurs for me is with Deus Ex: The Fall). If you are daring you can flash the zip I attach to this thread. If you want to compile it yourself here is the diff:

    Code:
    diff --git a/legacy/alsa_sound/AudioHardwareALSA.h b/legacy/alsa_sound/AudioHardwareALSA.h

    Please test and let me know if it fixes the Audio issues for you. The zip works on pollux and pollux_windy and just replaces the following five Audio related files:

    Code:
    audio.primary.default.so
    audio.primary.msm8960.so
    audio_policy.default.so
    audio_policy.msm8960.so
    libalsa-intf.so

    It should work on all recent CM11 builds. As always, I take no responsibility if this breaks your Tab, starts World War Three or sets your dog on fire.

    HTH,

    That's true when you flash cm but when you flash twrp will it replace the kernel?

    Inviato dal mio Nexus 5 utilizzando Tapatalk

    Yes won't replace the kernel.look here.It also has a download link

    The verdict on the bluetooth problem:selinux.It causes more problems than it solves.If you havent noticed after the 20 nightly se linux has been turned from permissive to enforcing.I have the opinion that this causes a kind of conflict with cwm so that it bootloops if flashed with cwm.But the crap is beyond the limits.We have noticed that bluetooth is not working.I digged into logs and guess what i've found:selinux blocks bluetooth.So here is the solution(AS CM 11 DOESN'T GIVE US THE OPTION TO CHANGE IT'S STATUS FROM THE ABOUT MENU AS IT DID ON PREVIOUS VERSIONS):Install selinux mode changer app from playstore or from xda and turn selinux to permissive and voila.bluetooth works.


    MOD-EDIT:: No swearing please....
