Great job guys! Thank you for your hard work. Can you give us a hint on how to lock it to landscape mode?

Can someone please confirm if the sixaxis ps3 controller test app says we have the right bluetooth stack?????

It does say that it's compatible, I haven't gone through the whole process of pairing it though.

In my limited testing, here's what I found:

This ROM is nice, and with ext4, it's fluid and quick. Great work JT!

As far as bugs go:
  • Volume rocker wake does not work
  • Screen off is landscape
  • Error in Portable Wifi Hotspot
  • No auto brightness option
  • Google Maps and Youtube shows in the market, but will not allow downloading
  • Wifi signal shows as low all the time
  • Camcorder does not work
  • Rom Manager reports that Clockwork Recovery is not installed and asks if I have Galaxy S (i9000) or Galaxy S mtd

I'll keep looking for more, but this is fantastic! Not sure if you're looking for suggestions of new functionality, but there is a guy with a kernel patch for USB host mode, which I would absolutely love.

can u detail the steps involved in getting landscape orientation? i tried editing the build.prop, but only froze my tab. i appreciate all your work... thanks
in the build.prop you want to edit the line
Code:
ro.sf.hwrotation=90
to
Code:
ro.sf.hwrotation=0
and reboot for it to take effect.

I will not address all your issues (most are, yeah, it's still beta, they'll be fixed eventually).
I asked koush about getting together with me to sort out the RM issue the other day, but I have yet to hear back from him. But basically, we need him to fix that.
I plan on implementing the USB host driver code as soon as we have source for the kernel.

I've also run into a handful of apps (facebook, sixaxis controller compatibility check, and several others) that you can search in the market, but they don't have a download/install option. I've pulled a couple from another device and they will install and work fine when installed manually. Otherwise I'm loving CM7 on my Tab!

Oh yeah, that I know, in JT's OP he asks for reports of what is broken, I just thought I'd add in what I found. BTW, is the maps/youtube bug a problem with the build.prop as well? Would the fingerprint from say, the VZW GB leak, work?

Thank you again, you and JT are the type of people that make the android community (possibly excluding a good portion of XDA, :grin:) awesome.

Is it possible to flash this through heimdall? currently on oldmacnuts Better Than Life Confidence and Paranoia V2.0, and have not been able to successfully install cwm on that rom :/ would love to give this a try though!

scratch that, read through the thread and figured it out.

thanks for a great rom!

Just a heads up, I can't get any video to play from the sd card-avi,mp4,etc. All audio plays fine though.

You can switch to landscape though the adw launcher, that's on there already. It's in the settings under ui then screen preferences-home orientation. That's how i'm on landscape right now.

Home screen


Second screen to the left


I gotta turn on % showing for the battery and the cyan theme still. :)

I am having problems with the new version on wifi. it disconnects every 2-3 webpages. I then have to turn toggle off/on before it'll work again. Never had this problem before?
Also, free memory is down about 40-60mb on this release and im getting 2800 in Antutu now..wierd! I gotta make sure it's not on my end and ill report back.

Finally got orientation "fixed". It's kinda whacky, and SUPER hacky, but it works for the most part. Got the kernel source crap worked out too, with Voodoo sound and what not :D

Strong work...loving CM7 on the tab, only issues I've had so far are the videos not playing and the market problems noted earlier. I uninstalled the market update (not market updater). Go to settings/applications/ manage applications/all/market/uninstall update. Now all apps are downloadable and work, except video for youtube. Netflix still is giving me an error also. I know the vzw tab owners love having a couple of good dev in their corner. Thanks for all of your hard work!!

The market problems are due to changing the lcd density, revert it 240 and it should work. Fixed in upcoming build.

Just kanged OMX libs from the Nexus S and got video playback working MUCH better, videos recorded from the camcorder on a stock build play, as well as HQ YouTube :D still no recording from camcorder though, that's gonna take some hacking :(

Fixing up a few more things, then a new build should be up, hopefully later tonight :D
