This is a quick refresh of the Gtabcomb 3.3 release that AC3 and freddlys put out, many thanks to the guys at http://www.guilde-binaries.fr/hannspad/ for the initial release.

I've included some tweaks and fixes to optimize it a little, I included the v2 of archimedes script (and linked to it so it actually runs
)
I've also included chainfires GL drivers well, I recommend getting his CF3d app if you dont have it already! to control them (the originals are in the system/lib/ as well.

I got rid of the data mounted as loop partition as I've found in the past that they can cause more grief than anything. I/o scores have dropped a bit as a result in benchmarks, but the loop is a cheat...
scripts start, some of the files have been replaced with newer/more stable versions, plus I've cleaned it up a little to make some more space where I can.

It has AB73s latest kernel in there,(wifi light works) and I've changed locale to En_gb (sorry Freddlys
)

pretty much everything I've changed can be done by anyone with a bit of knowledge, so its not exactly going to set the world on fire, but it does seem to be a nicer noobie friendler remix.

**** what I haven't done yet******
move /cache to internal_sdcard/ & resize /system/ to the full 512mb mtd.
made it forcefully mount data as ext4 rather than ext3
**********************************

iamges flash as boot.img and system.img in the update.zip

Usual disclaimer applies..
Code:
this works fine for me, I can't guarantee it will work fine for you, as <br />
A) I don't know you, <br />
<img src='http://www.slatedroid.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' /> I can't see your device, <br />
C) I've no idea what you've done to it <br />
D) there could be a rare plague of tropical fish that fall from the sky and interrupt the karmic flow of magic joobies from the zip to your tablets internal memory. <br />
<br />
I'm not responsible for any damage you do, I'm pretty certain flashing a rom invalidates the warranty, but Nvflash usually cures most illnesses. <br />
 I can't guarantee it won't cause WWIII, or cause your neighbours to hate you, or in any way be responsible for you wiping your own bottom<br />
or D) above<br />
 If you're big enough to have one of these, then you're big enough to accept responsibility for your own actions <img src='http://www.slatedroid.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

-----
to Flash this from stock device, please do an NVbackup first as described in the FAQ section.
Then install CWM from the recovery option as described in steps 1 -9 by alpha232 here
or you can read here, http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/21895-guide-the-complete-beginners-guide-to-installing-custom-roms-on-the-hannspad/ but ignore the kernel section as it's not needed.


and choose the GTabComb3.3_refresh.zip at stage 10..

then factory reset and reboot
----

for anyone else, you should know what to do by now

but if you're running the last gtabcomb you **may** need to fac reset due to the change in the loop for /data, I know I did!

also can someone else mirror it, dropbox does throw a fit sometimes if stuff gets downloaded too much, my connection is a bit slow to upload again.

(thanks guys)

if you receive a error 7 during flashing, then follow this post

i only get 2000 now was the 2800 i was getting FAKE?
i get 3000 ish without using a data loop..

but if you mount /data into a loop and then try to read/write that data you will get vastly inflated I/O scores as its reading/writing to cache with possibility of data loss and corruption thrown in..

of course if you really want the loop back in, just extract the script from the original rom and put it into etc/init.d/

I'm such a noob! I've been saying and thinking I installed Flashback on my pad when in fact I have Gtabcomb 3.3, only installed it a couple of days ago and must say i'm very impressed


I'm wondering though should I just install this refresh or wait for Fards next update?

Many thanks to Fards for is time and effort

Get the zip again, and do md5sum on it and compare against the value in the first post, its been corrupted somewhere by the sounds of it
