KatKiss ROM
Nougat 7.1 Release

Asus TF700T - TF201





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 the rom's main goal is efficiency, speed/responsiveness,
while not adding bloated features that will slow things down




DOWNLOADS :


Currently Not Working:
- Video recording
- Big wallpapers will result in a black screen in the default launcher
- What is listed in post #2 or crossed in the feature list

Install Instructions:



Install a F2FS compatible TWRP Recovery (KANG TWRP recommended)
  • Backup everything !
  • Boot into the recovery

    The first time or everytime you have an issue when dirty flashing (Especially when changing android versions):
  • do a full wipe , if you have issues make sure that you format /data (format is different than wipe)
    Warning: formatting will remove what is stored in your internal storage, so store the rom /gapps/supersu zips onto an external storage (microSD, SD card..) or make sure you know how to push them back through adb.
  • Change /data filesystem to f2fs

    Then everytime (even when "dirty flashing") do the following steps:
  • Flash the rom
  • Flash the SuperSU zip
  • Flash gapps
  • Wipe cache/dalvik
  • Reboot

Native Nougat MultiWindow

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)

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 requires to be turned on twice before it turns on.

System UI Tuner
A few things including the navbar buttons can be tweaked in Settings => System UI Tuner


Old default android browser
- compatibility has been broken by google , so bookmarks & history are borked , also it's not refreshing sometime unless you touch the screen.
You can use another similar browser like Lightning browser

Hardware keyboard layouts
More languages have been added in the default asusec keyboard
Set the keyboard layout through Settings => Language & Input => Physical Keyboard (asusdec)
(to use multiple layouts , you first need to add another Language in Settings => Language & input)
You can switch between layouts using the keyboard icon that appears in the navbar.


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

First Beta Release #007
New rom version available:

TF700T : KatKiss-7.0_TF700T_007.zip
TF201 : KatKiss-7.0_TF201_007.zip



As usual with a major upgrade: FORMAT /data first
(it'll change it to ext4, then you simply need to change it back to f2fs)

Unless you need one of the missing /not working feature it should be stable enough for daily use already

At this point in the rom I mostly need:
- Confirmation that it boots/works
- bugs and things missing / crashing that are NOT already listed in the 1st/2nd post
also no need to post multiple times, or ask for ETA,
that will save me time if you do that,
thanks

Have some issues (not really a bug, but) on TF201

1. Couple of times reseved MTP Host keeps stoping (for example when I mounted microSD and tried to open it) - it didn't affect to enything at first look
2. Very large icons in battery stats (they don't depend on UI size)
3. Seems that in resent apps every working app is in a frame, which cuts some space from a preview
