Slightly Blue is a Gingerbread rom that I've created/modded/repackaged/remixed/tweaked and is based on the final CM7 build for Malata smb tablets (Hannspad, G-Tablet etc).
I thought there was a hole in the Hannspad world for another CM7 rom as chrisd1a1's CM7 release is now out of date and most people have moved on to ICS or JB. Those latter two versions of Android are great but CM7 does have some advantages for tablets like the Hannspad with it's paltry 512mb of ram. I'm not going to try and sell it to anyone- Try it yourself and see how it goes.
I've added an ICS styling to the rom for those of us used to the icons and feel of the newer Android versions. The original cyanbread theme is included if you want to go back to vanilla.
This rom will work with whatever partition size you have now whether it's the original 200mb or the JB hungry 350mb.
I've added an Aroma interface to the installer so that you can now choose between the Hybrid or Rotation kernel. There's also an option for launchers.
This is my first experiment in rom modding/cooking/fiddling. Please let me know if you find and issues or have ideas for additional tweaks, apps or themes.
Hannspad_CM7_Slightly_Blue_v1.5.zip - 137.35 MB
- Boot into CWM
- wipe data/cache factory reset
- wipe dalvik cache
- Format - system, data and cache
- Flash the slightlyblue zip from internal or external memory
- Power off and then boot - Do not reboot. NOTE : I have an issue with my tablet where rebooting from recovery results in getting stuck on the Hannspree logo. I'm not sure how widespread this issue but if you do reboot and have the same problem then just hold the power button until the tablet turns off and then power up again.
- Navigate to SETTINGS > Cyanogenmod Settings > Tablet Tweaks to move the status bar to the bottom and the soft buttons to the left.
- Navigate to SETTINGS > Wireless & Networks > Wifi settings > connect to your wireless network
- Navigate to SETTINGS > Accounts & Sync > add account > The Play store will be installed/upgraded
DPI- After some experimenting I've decided that my preferred dpi is 140. So, why didn't I include a 140 option in the rom...? Annoyingly, presenting a 140dpi Hannspad to the Play Store will cause a lot of apps to become unavailable.
VIDEO PLAYBACK- CyanogenMod 7 does not have hardware acceleration/decoding enabled for video playback. It'll play SD video fine and some HD video should work with a decent software decoder and media player but I'd suggest looking at another rom if video is really important. It should be noted that this only effects video- Games use the full power of the Tegra2 system and CM7 is a fine gaming OS.

-Rebuilt from the base smb_a1002 CM7 release.
-Added Aroma installer.
-Removed GAPPS and replaced with just the play store.

UPDATE 18.11.12 - v1.2
-Updated Holo launcher and ES file explorer to latest versions.
-Changed the kernel install to avoid error 7 messages in CWM - This is a bit experimental. Feedback appreciated.
Not a lot different from v1.1 so anyone running that version might want to just update Holo and Es File Explorer and not bother with v1.2. Alternatively, if you have 1.1 working well, you could flash the rom without a factory reset. It should update fine.
The'hybrid' kernel should work for most people and is very SOD resistant. A couple of apps have some compatibility issues so try the 'rotation' kernel if you have any issues.
