Regarding the lack of keyboard ... you need to wait about 5 to 10 minutes for the keyboard to install. The new keyboard has a spelling dictionary and is huge.
In case anyone else has the same problem - I waited 20 min still no keyboard, so then skipped through the section without being able to enter anything (it accepts a blank name for the owner) - then after waiting a further 20 min at the home screen etc, trying to run apps/browser etc - still no keyboard... so I rebooted and instant keyboard.
So looks like if you're not getting the keyboard, just reboot and it should work straight away.
Oh! and after that I tried the camera and just got a green screen and then the app would freeze - another reboot fixed that.
However, just wondering if the following message is normal to see on the recovery menu?:
E:Bad bootloader arguments "(null)" E: failed to mount/ sdcard(No such file or directory) E: failed to mount/ sdcard(No such file or directory) E: failed to mount/ sdcard(No such file or directory) E: failed to mount/ sdcard(No such file or directory) E: cannot mount/ sdcard(No such file or directory) E: Can't mount/sdcard/factory_update_param.aml E: unknown volume for path [/udisk/factory_update-param.aml] E: Can't mount/udisk/factory_update_param.aml
The reason, I installed this custom ROM (I was going to wait for JB ) was because my stock set up just went pear shaped yesterday.
Well a few days ago, I noticed that even in so-called "standby", screen off, wifi off etc... it would only last 8 or so hours before turning itself off... and when I checked the battery stats, I could see that for some weird reason (even in standby when it wasn't being used) the battery drain looked normal for standby up until about the 40% remaining mark and then it just did an almost vertical drop and in another hour or so was down to 3% and turned itself off... this was concerning, but then yesterday for no apparent reason the internal SD just disappeared and nothing I tried could get it back - without wiping the media from recovery - of course I lost everything and all my data etc.
So, what's my point in all this? Don't bother sticking with stock, it's gonna go bad - too many bugs... go straight to this ROM - it already is running so much better than even when stock was running well
Just one other question though - Other than the "Bad bootloader arguments" and "unknown volume for path" errors in the recovery menu...
Is anyone else finding that performance mode is the slowest? and power saving the fastest?
When I run quadrant, in power saving mode the tablet beats the Transformer TF201 - but in performance mode and normal, it's lower, with performance getting the lowest results.
