RAMOS's website to keep updated with their progress on official ROM releases..
http://www.microsoft...cn/download.php
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RAMOSFans site chinese forum if anyone wants to follow it..usually has first releases of custom roms..
http://www.microsoft...orum-102-1.html
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


*******Latest ROM*********Repack 20130322 Straight copy and paste from Gearslam..

"Here is a rooted version of the new W17PRO JB w17ref.20130322.eng.liu ROM.
I repacked the ROM with supersu and binaries, busy-box has been updated to v1.21, boot.img modded for init.d support, and default language changed to English.
I included an app2sd script to automatically move apps to ext2/3/4 partition on external sdcard if available.
There are two versions one with the governor speed set to 1.32GHz and one at 1.51Ghz at boot. The speed can be edited in /etc/init.d/30cpuspeed.
I have two W17Pros; One runs fine at 1.51GHz the other one only likes to run at 1.32GHz without crashes.

Download link:
https://www.dropbox....FYS?n=124388285

I left the install scripts alone. If you don't want it to erase your internal storage, delete "--wipe_media" from factory_update_param.aml before flashing."

Thanks Gearslam.......

Thanks eBait

100% battery bug seems fixed, even without wipe. All should work fine now, game performance indeed seems better then the last ROM.

RAmos W17PRO.20121022 ROM repack

* Rooted using SuperSU
* Added ES File Explorer 1.62.2
* Added gapps 20120429
* Added permissions to make the device compatible with more apps in the Play Store
* Edited build.prop to indentify as a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (P6200) which makes the device compatible with more apps in the Play Store
* Removed VideoPlayer and FileExplorer and ThinkFree (kept TangoC and Host tool intact as they are acctually useful)

Recap how to root, install market and fix market.. thank everyone else for all of the procedures
thought i'd just put it all in one spot...

Download
*Firmware of your choice from above..
*root_your_w17pro.zip http://www.mediafire...a8b7tw8nr2f2ni9
*Market Install.rar http://www.mediafire...9c5gqjdj6rpi7jr
*xmlfiles (1).zip http://www.mediafire...ft28i70alfchc0m
*ES File Explorer.apk http://www.mediafire...hy8o5okp2q2o5xr

extract firmware onto the root of your sd card..(dont unzip w17ref-ota-eng.zuguo.chen.zip inside the rar leave it alone)

put root_your_w17pro.zip onto the root of your external sdcard or somewhere you'll find it.(dont unzip it)

Unzip market install.rar and xmlfiles (1).zip to there own individual folders on your sd card and put esfile explorer on there aswell somewhere you'll find it later..

1. Flash the firmware, it will reboot automatically.(by turning off tablet then hold down volume "-" then "power"... release power then wait it should start flashing....)

2. Power off then take the sdcard out hold down the volume "-" and "power" again to get into recovery. Stick sdcard back in then install root_your_w17pro.zip (use "-" and "+" to move around then "power" to select) REBOOT..

3. go into file browser find and install ES File Explorer open it and go into settings scroll down the bottom and turn on "root Explorer" and "Mount File System" agree with the pop ups then follow below...(this gives you r/w access to the root filing system)
whilst your there may aswell click on view and choose details makes it easier to see file properties..

4. Copy the below files into System/App folder on your device (from where ever you put them on the sdcard)
- GoogleLoginService.apk
- GoogleServicesFramework.apk
- Vending.apk
Click Vending.apk to install, then REBOOT.

you can stop there if you like market will work, but you will be missing some apps...

5. to fix market to get more apps compatible

a. Backup /system/etc/permissions (just take a copy with ES file explorer..recommended just in case)
b. copy the xmlfiles files into /system/etc/permissions (android.hardware.location.gps.xml, android.hardware.location.xml, com.android.location.provider.xml, tablet_core_hardware.xml) agree to over write all of them
c. Make sure the file permission are rw-r-r (with ES file explorer, long tap then change properties on each file..to help you out all files in that directory need to be rw-r-r)
d. Go to settings->apps->all and tap Google Play Store
e. Click on Clear data
f. REBOOT tablet

market still not working

Go to settings->apps->all Go to “Google Play Store” again
‘Clear Cache’ if it lets you then ‘Force Stop’ — DO NOT Clear data

back and Go to “Google Services Framework”
‘Clear data’ then ‘Force Stop’

REBOOT your machine.

Then after reboot market is still not working.. then go into..
settings->apps->all google play store again open it but this time clear data if it lets you..

thats it exit open market up, login and you should now have full market access....Youtube...Facebook....WeatherZone...SoundHound..angry birds...skype...etc

would be nice if somebody that new what they were doing could write a script to do all this..or pack it into the firmware..

After installing this new ROM I would like to share some observations:

1. It actually seems faster now than ever.
2. It gets hotter than ever.
3. The wifi gets a weaker and more unstable signal

It would be interesting to hear if anyone else has the same experience

Linpack -->Single Thread = 37.16 Mflops Multi Thread= 67.71mflops
It's pretty quick, seems to be a little faster than a tegra 2.
I've got a tegra 2 tablet it feels pretty similar in performance.
But it's officially the quickest tablet i own now..

Thanks for benchmarks. Tablet looking enough strong dual core for good pricing. HDMI out and IPS screen are personal selectables.

I'm not know about stability. Im not know about battery life performance. Battery life strongly related with firmware if bad now can will fix. And RAMOS w17 firmware is open source ?

I would recommend formating the sdcard before you put the firmware files in it.

Again, thanks for the instructions. It works great.

One thing however does not work on my W17pro, the calendar app won't "integrate" with my Google Account. As a result, I can't sync my Google calendar with my tablet.

Anyone knows what needs to be patched or something like that?

Anyone knows how to get working a USB gamepad?

I tried connecting a PC USB Gamepad and the PS3 Dualshock (through a USB to microUSB wire) controller and they aren't recognised.

Please help me, I want to play emulators with a gamepad. :(
