Unofficial CyanogenMod 10
Thanks to the good work by Christian Troy and his generosity I am able to produce this ROM.


Compatibility Zips
You will need a compatibility zip suited for your tablet. These are available from: [rom] CyanogenMod 10
These files are created for each type of tablet, and enable hardware like cameras and touch screens.


Warning: If you want to install Google Apps with this ROM the system partition will need to be larger than 318Mb.
See http://www.slatedroi...post__p__432521

If your system partition is too small see:
http://www.slatedroi...genmod-10-lite/


Stable Download
Download Build 2012-10-11
MD5: 153317dfbb7d273a543596b17b5bf54f

* Android 4.1.2 (Should not require a full wipe if upgrading)
* Updated CM10 sources


Testing Download (For best results perform a factory reset before installation.)
Download Build 2013-03-28
MD5: cdfd72ddb9729fe3e40cad8eb1da1168

* Patched framework to prevent sleep of death. Thank you Aquous.
* Included Aquous's patch to the theme chooser that works around the theme incompatibility issue.
* Updated kernel to hopefully prevent sleep of death.
* Updated CM10 sources


Google Apps Download
Download Google Apps 20120726

For newer version visit Goo.im


Installation
Using CWM
1. Backup your existing installation.
2. Perform a factory reset.
3. Flash latest build.
4. Flash compatibility zip.
5. Flash Google apps lite.

For further installation instructions see:
[rom] CyanogenMod 10


Updating
Using CWM
1. Flash latest build.
2. Flash compatibility zip.
3. Flash Google apps.
4. Clear the Dalvic cache.
5. Clear the cache partition.


Phablet and Tablet UI (Testing Download)
Tablet UI may be turned off and Phablet UI turned on by changing the setting:
Settings -> Display -> Enable Tablet UI (will require a reboot)

This setting will have no effect on larger tablets with a hieght above 720 unless the build prob setting
"ro.sf.lcd_density" is increased from 160.

My tablet has a resolution of 1024x768 and I use a setting of ro.sf.lcd_density=180 to get Phablet UI working.

Note: HDMI output only seems to work with Tablet UI enabled.


Building
See this topic:
Building CM10 for A10 devices


MD5 Hash
When downloading a ROM, it is good practice to get an MD5 hash of the file you downloaded and compare it to the
MD5 hash posted under the download link. To generate a MD5 hash you can use a program such as md5sum.
If the MD5 hashes match the download is not corrupt.

A corrupt download can be responsible for many strange errors. If you have not confirmed that the MD5 hash of
your download is correct and your tablet is behaving strangely, please check that the download used to flash the
tablet is not corrupted.

After installing York Rom, still man FCs! After wiping everything, it seem that everything is working. Thanks for continuing this great ROM, and looking forward to future releases.

Hi William,

I also had trouble getting the repo to work, I managed to hack around the issue and now have it fixed.

I will need to spend some time to get my build notes organised and will try to update the first post with the instructions in a day or two.

@AllanA,

I do not want to add a default file explorer at this time.
You should be able to edit the build.prop with your preferred DPI,
If you try LCD Density changer report back.

@andresing,
I am not sure that I understand the question.
Git is the tool used to update sources.
If you are interested spend some time and learn it.
See github.com
I hope this helps.

@hamletiano
Do you have any information on uinput.ko?
The full screen function is useful.
I will see what I can do.

Thanks Shaun for the answer,

Regarding the uinput.ko our mate cherrytree already uploaded it, maybe you can add it for next release. (this is imperative to get working droidmote app, if anybody is planning to buy it, at least knows that will face a problem unless the tablet has this module.)

About the full screen, the last CM9 nightly by Christian added this:
* Cyanogenmod's option to hide status bar now will permanently hide it (not only if the app requests the FULLSCREEN flag). You can enable/disable this option using the included ToggleBar app or checking/unchecking the option from "combined bar"'s settings.
* Added WiFi wakelock (change WiFi sleep policy to "Never" or the tablet won't sleep)

Maybe you could get the workaround from there,although being ICS not sure if this will help you on JB.

Thanks in advance!.

Hi Shaun2029!

So glad you have picked up the great work of Christian and continue to optimize the Allwinner A10 platform with CM10. A10's CM10 is currently still leak of GPU hardware acceleration. Is it because it was based on the baseband v1.1? I heard that both CM9 and CM10 were based on firmware baseband v1.1. The new baseband v1.4 should start to offer GPU accel and v1.5 offers much better response to user. To you think it is still possible to use v1.5?

Thanks a lot! ^_^

Hi e-ghost,

A far as I know baseband refers to the version of the firmware for a phones radio.
My tablet does not have a 3G or any radio.

The current ROM does have graphics acceleration.

Cheers,
Shaun

Any news / improvements on video format support / playback, it was not "as comprehensive" as on CM9 and it is the only thing stopping me from using CM10 (tried it first before CM9, but video playback was not good - one of the main uses for me).

cheers
Bill
