Language Translation welcome:

Some of the mod are done purely on English. Anyone wishing to translate to his native language can pass me the translation to be added.


As this is based on Freescale R10.3.1, there are likely to be features that are working in v2.3.3r03c that is not working in this beta rom.

More testing and feedback means better rom. If you have used an usb hardware that work on the rom, please do share.:)

- Working g-sensor(for two speakers model, change the model under settings->kkmod tweaks)
- Working camera
- Working wifi
- Working Bluetooth support(Not all dongles will work, see below for dongle which work)
- 3G is expected to work but not tested(one user confirmed not working)
- Based on Gingerbread v2.3.4-rc1
- not required to install youtube.apk as it can be access via browser
- ADW Launcher(kudo to cyanogen)
- OS Monitor(http://code.google.c...oid-os-monitor/)
- Working external sd slot
- Soft button(home/menu/back)
- Rooted
- Date correction
- Percentage Battery in Statusbar(thanks to Fightspit for his thread)
- KKMod Tweaks (Reboot,Calibrate Touchscreen,Switch to two speakers,Enable 3G,Enable OpenDNS)
- Performance and Memory Tweaks
- Translation for Russian(ru),Portuguese(pt), Italian(it) language
- Change battery warning popup from 15% to 10%
- Remapped Hardware keys - Only Back button will wake tablet from sleep.(see below pictures for details)
- Added Recent apps softbutton
- Market v3.3.12
- Move data correction to earlier in the boot process(may help some users who have issue with correction)
- KKMod Tweaks -> Shutdown device


Things to Fix/Improve in next release:

- Adhoc wifi
- Add longpress to bring up settings for power widget for wifi and bluetooth


Some users reported boot loop(stuck in boot animation) after upgrading, you need to use "adb shell wipe data" and restart the tablet. As this will wipe your data, you might want to consider backing it up with application such as titanium backup before flashing v2.3.4. You can also do a factory reset using KKMod ROM Utility(HOME+MENU)

Installation Steps

1. Download update-v2.3.4-r3.zip
2, Connect USB from Table to PC and enable USB from statusbar
3. Copy update-v2.3.4-r3.zip to Tablet
4. Boot into KKMod ROM Utility using HOME + MENU
5. ROM Update-> update-v2.3.4-r3.zip



ROM Download:

KKMod Tweaks(all settings required reboot after change)

Enable 3G Support
-If disable, rom will not load phone.apk and telephonyprovider.apk which is required for 3G. Enable if you have 3G connection

OpenDNS using DHCP
- By default, ROM will using OpenDNS for name to IP address resolution. In most cases, this is expected to improve browsing experiences. Disable to use your ISP DNS

IMX515 Model
- Select two speakers if you have that to correct the g-sensor.

BlueTooth Dongle which work on KKMod ROM

Look like Cambridge Silicon based dongle is widely available in the market. Note that the physical appearance of the dongle is not an indicative of compatibility. Its the device ID that is most important.

The good news is that I just managed to enable market support on v2.3.4. Will be testing/adding fix from v2.3.3.r03 into this before next release.

Hi....I didn't tried the current version as it doesn't have market yet.

Could you please test one more thing? While playing videos from you-tube website, try to go forward and backward. When I was doing this in v2.3.3.r03 firmware, browser was crashing and the system was becoming very slow. I had to restart the tablet couple of times.

Interesting, I didnt know single speaker doesnt have the camera. But if its an 8" imx515, its likely to work.

try adb shell rm -R /data/dalvik*/*

if it does not work, you have to do a "adb wipe data" which is like a factory reset.

How do i send these commands? I tried installing Android 2.3.3 ROM right now, and it got flashed without any problem. But, when i tried again to install Android 2.3.4 beta 2 ROM, its just not loading up. It's stuck at the Gingerbread logo.

if you do not have adb configured in your pc, you can use romkit v1.

connect usb cable and run the command.
