Announcement from timduru: KatKiss Lollipop- High performance rom for the asus Transformer TF300T
KatKiss ROM
Lollipop 5.1.1 Release 24

Asus TF300T



Please note that this version is made for and tested on the TF300T model.



After a few years of success on the TF101, KatKiss is now available for the TF300T

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/responsiveness,
while not adding bloated features that will slow things down




DOWNLOADS:
Thanks to keep this thread for the TF300T

Tips
First Install
Make sure you do a full wipe the first time you install the rom
If you get error code 9XX when installing an app in the PlayStore, make sure that you format /data
(wipe doesn't format)


The first boot after a rom flash is slower than with 4.4.4 and 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 ~2-3 minutes without gapps and 5+ 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.


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.

GPS:
if it is taking a long time to get a lock or no lock, follow this:

Install the latest K.A.T app

Then follow precisely this procedure:


1) Location Settings
- Go to Settings => Location => turn OFF (top right switch)
- Turn it back ON
- Make sure you agree to let google access the location.
- Make sure the current selected mode is High accuracy

2) Launch the new K.A.T app
- make sure you grant it root access
- make sure you have internet access
- go to the install menu, Check the "Install GPS quicker fix + Assistance
- Click the Install button
- Make sure it says "Install Finished"

3) Reboot
4) Wait that it has finished booting and launching all the stuff you have starting at boot
5) Start your GPS app outside with a clear sky line, to speed things up stay in range of the wifi / internet connection.

Do not let the gps app loose focus when it is trying to get a fix.
Do not let your tablet sleep / turn off the screen either.


Doing that here, the first time and with a cold gps start, and even staying in my house,
I get a 6 sat fix within 30 seconds and 11 sat fix in 1min 15seconds.

From there subsequent fixes takes about 3 seconds to grab 7 sats and about 10 seconds to reach the 10-11 sat fix
(you still want to let it sit outside for a bit after the 1st fix, so that the ephemeris data gets consolidated and updated to help faster fix later on)



Flash & HTML5 Video
Flash is not supported by default on Lollipop, you can still use it with Dolphin Dolphin Browser:
Install Dolphin Browser, install or activate Dolphin JetPack in settings, install the latest flash plugin.

Sites are migrating slowly to HTML5 video use the default browser & other webkit based browsers for HTML5 video support


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 vertically (while in landscape) or horizontally, you can switch an app back and forth between multiwindow mode and regular mode while it's running.

MultiWindow



NavBar:
- To switch between full screen and split View you can use the NavBar Button
(It will lay apps alternatively in one SplitView spot then the other.)
- To change focus simply Tap on the app or use the 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, switch between the 2 most recent apps and to force the splitview slot 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 not refresh correctly sometime.
Same when rotating the screen while in splitview mode.
To force a refresh simply tap the app or if you have 2 apps in split, just click twice on the switch to last app button: to force it to relayout

Yep for TTS see post #2,
just uninstall it, same for google search if you're using google launcher.
I'll make a minimal KatKiss gapps package later on.

But yeah it's quite nice and fast already, and it's only the early stages, high optimization flags & tweaks are not yet in,
So quite a nice change for our old TF300T and more improvements ahead

I have got an issue which I had with KitKass 4.4.4 as well.
When I tunr the screen off and don't touch the tablet for a couple of hours (sometimes less than an hour) it seems to turn off.
Pressing the Power Button does not turn the screen on but instead boots the tablet up.
So for some reason it turns itself off after some time.
I have used CM11 for 2 days now and the issue has not appeared. Only that sometimes it took a couple of seconds until the screen turned on.

Since I have not read about anybody else reporting such a thing I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what could cause this.
Would you have any idea about it? I'd really like to fix this. After all your ROMs have amazing features like the Multi-Window (though of course not yet this ROM but I'm sure it'll come ) Thx in advance

This time even after less than 30 minutes :|
