Ok guys, been working hard on a device tree for CM on the Galaxy Tab 2. Some people want to throw in some help so I thought I'd throw this out there to see where we are all at. Few notes first.

Disclaimer: RootzWiki, CyanogenMod, nor I are responsible for anything that happens to your device or data as a result of flashing this ROM. You have already voided your warranty by rooting the device. Please take caution and if you are unsure about anything do not flash this.

Second Note: I am not affiliated with CyanogenMod in any way, I am not part of the team nor have been tasked with creating a device tree for this tab. It's just what source I have chosen to build on. Please do not complain to the CyanogenMod team about any bugs, problems, etc with this build as they did not build it.

Ok details now.

Changelog for build 4:
-----Fixed FC in Storage settings
-----hopefully other weird layout issues taken care of. Don't ask me what this is I don't know.
-----symlinked /mnt/extSdCard to /extSdCard for easier access
-----Fixed streaming content in browser not playing in video player where it's supported

-----Reverted to 1.0 GHz for the included kernel (OC zip coming soom)
-----Updated kernel to 3.0.31 (latest 3.0.y)
-----Merged in some interactive scheduler upgrades

Changelog for build 3:
-----Off-mode charging animation fixed
-----Audio capture (camcorder/voice commands/chat) fixed
-----MTP/PTP fixed (file transfer) note: not Kies, Kies has no idea what this is anymore.
-----Fixed up some display wrongdoings
-----Fixed up some stagefright wierdness

-----Updated to official kernel sources
-----Reverted back to stock PVR libs
-----Re-overclocked to 1.2 GHz
-----Changed I/O scheduler to deadline
-----DVFS Optimized

What's not working:
--Flash inop
--Bluetooth Bluetooth actually works for connecting and data transfer..will not work for audio as I haven't gotten there yet.
--Chrome Beta not working yet

There are more but those are the bigger bugs that I plan on tackling first. Please let me remind you again, this is not what I would even call Alpha, if you want to play...then play. If you want to help...then help. If any of the bugs I listed are deal breakers then don't flash.

CyanogenMod source synced as of 05/08 10am.

Quit playing with it and battery life goes jk It'll get better. I hesitate getting knee deep into the kernel source since I keep hearing Samsung is going to re-release the source. Then I'll dive further. Just trying to get all the components working for right now.

CM9? What about rootzboat :) ?

Just messing. Thanks for kicking things off. Can't wait for mine to get here... and whenever the kernel source works...

Im actually using a source built kernel in this. Waiting to see if Samsung rereleases something that works better before committing too much time into it.

I've been running this since yesterday with zero issues .
Thanks for supplying this CM Rom I really like how my tab runs now without the crapware.

I had the Kindle Fire for a few months and really prefer this tab over the Kindle the addition of this Rom makes it that much better.
Thanks again.....

Where, how, and to whom can I donate for providing me with this awesomeness?
Is there a way I can add GPS on/off to the settings/notifications bar?
Is there a way I can add screen indication or can someone suggest a good launcher? I usually prefer the stock ICS launcher or ADW but I don't care for the way ADW stretches over tablet screens.
