Team Tiamat Xoom Rom

First off a note from brd himself :
"bigrushdog said:
First and foremost, I would like to thank my wife Christy for putting up with the 100+ hours it took me to get the storage framework working. I told her I would be taking a break after this and I am. It is likely that the coming OTA will render most of this rom unneeded. However, I just have this thing with pwning Motorola ;) Also, I would like to thank Roach from the Transformer team for breaking the back of the smali roadblock. Also, I have to thank Dr1337 from #xoom for making me double check the MediaProvider.apk manifest ;) I hope you guys enjoy this rom. Be sure to read the change log and follow all instuctions when flashing. Thanks

This rom is presented to you buy the following winners:

Special mentions:
  • Roach`- Without him, we would be nowhere!
  • Kelvie - Thanks for the wpa_supplicant
  • Steady Hawkin - Init.d support
  • Jewremy - For the battery circle mod
  • Bazar6 - For fixing up the icons left over from themeing.

And now the rom!
Rom Features

This is a completely deodexed rom, based on the 3.2 wifi system image. However just because Google and Motorola haven't released 3.2 for the verizon xoom that doesn't mean we don't support it! Thats right. We support 3g devices on 3.2 before Google have even released it.

EPIC features
  • SDCard support via mtp. NOTE: your sdcard will now be at /mnt/external1
  • Modified application permissions to allow applications that can write to /sdcard to write to /mnt/external1
  • USB OTG (On The Go) support. Your usb drives will now be mounted automatically under /mnt/usbOTG
  • Android media services scan both internal and MicroSD for media (Gallery, Music, etc)
  • Fast boot times. Your boot times are simply amazing with this rom!
  • Storage controls in the notification area and in the settings menu!

General Features
  • Powered by Tiamat Kernel Katana 2.0.0.
  • Pre rooted with su and Superuser
  • Pre-installed busybox and iwmulticall.
  • Desktop UA String
  • Modified battery images & animations.
  • Wi-Fi Ad-Hoc Mode
  • Quickboot
  • Estrongs File Explorer
  • Easy charging light controls

Advanced Features:
  • Init.d boot scripts enabled
  • OpenVPN binary and script - Credit CyanogenMod
  • Applications files (apk) located in /data/tiamat_first_boot_install will automatically be installed.
  • Applications are zipaligned on boot
  • Cron service

Important Notes : A MUST READ
  • Your microsd card is now mounted at /mnt/external1. You will also be able to access this via MTP.
  • Unless you are upgrading from 1.1 or an private beta, you will need to wipe.
  • If you're on a EURO 3G device, please note that this rom should install the correct build.prop for you, but you will still need to backup & push your telephony databases. See here.
  • We know about the layout changes in applications such as Settings. This is due to how we had to decompile framework-res.

Installation Instructions

Prerequisites: Clockworkmod Recovery (Recovery R4C is still reccomended) and a MicroSD card for installation.

  1. OPTIONAL, BUT RECCOMENDED: Backup your internal applications with Titanium backup
  2. Download the 2.0 Rom and the 2.0.1, and place it on your external sdcard
  3. Restart into Recovery
  4. Perform a nandroid backup, and keep this safe!
  5. Perform a factory reset within recovery (Wipe data / factory reset) NOTE: Only required if you're not on the 1.1 rom.
  6. Install the rom
  7. Install the 2.0.1 Update zip.
  8. Welcome to the party

Release Notes
2.0.1 Release Notes
In this release, I have updated the maps application in /system/apps. This will bring maps up to the latest version, but unfortuantly will still not allow future updates from the market. However we are currently working on a fix for this that won't require users to wipe. (Hopefully, no promises).

Also, we listened to our users about the battery icons, and Nusince has drawn use some new ones that are very similar to the ones used in Rom v1.0/1.1 but have been redone to match the new resolution.

I have also included the build.prop installation script again so that the update will flash the correct build.prop, depending on the current one you have installed. So if you have a euro 3g Xoom, your 3g data connection should work perfectly.

You are also able to flash this directly over the top of the 2.0 rom, no need for a wipe or factory reset.

Last, but not least we have 3 new members to Tiamat Xoom. We welcome TDR, Steady Hawkin and lowtraxx to the team, so look forward to some interesting improvements!


Version 2.0.1
  • Replaced the battery icons with new ones from Nusince
  • Updated the maps application. NOTE: This is just a temporary fix, and we are working on a permanent fix.
  • Fixed up the euro build.prop

Version 2.0
  • Rebased off the 3.2 wifi image.
  • 3G Support on Android 3.2
  • sdcard is now at /mnt/external1 and is viewable via MTP
  • Any application that can write to /sdcard can now write to /mnt/external1
  • usbOTG drives now mount at /mnt/usbOTG and act identically to the sdcard.
  • Now comes with the Katana 2.0 stock GPU kernel.
  • /MicroSD and /usbOTG synlinks to their respective locations in /mnt
  • Automatically modprobe all kernel modules, apart from the wireless module.
  • New wallpaper & charging icons

Version 1.1
  • Storage framework completely overhauled based on Transformer Rom Prime 1.5 (thanks Roach)
  • System now gives storage control thru status bar icon and in Settings / Storage
  • Unmount MicroSD, remove, put in another one for working Hot Swap
  • Automatically mount USB Host storage (unmount still broke do to borked vold.fstab)
  • All Android media services scan both internal and MicroSD for media (Gallery, Music, etc)
  • new native Transformer file explorer accessable thru status bar to explore all mounted storage
  • Unfortunately, USB Mass Storage is still broke. (It's turning out to be far more complex than it should be)
  • Entire rom re-signed with test key due to manifest changes for storage port. All services work 100% (Google music beta, Market, etc)
  • Implemented a variety of init.d scripts with "Tiamat Control" flags
  • Enable features by moving flags (/data/tiamat_controls) in or out of "unused" folder
  • Enable or diasble charging light while device on
  • Enable or disable logging for better battery life
  • sysctl memory tweak
  • Cron service enabled for time based scripts (put Cron scripts in /data/cron)
  • Rom zip-aligned on boot (still insanely fast boot time)
  • Included up-to-date Maps.apk and Video.apk
  • Removed bloatware (Cordy.apk, dungeondefenders.apk, and stingrayquickoffice.apk)
  • Changed back to mostly stock icons
  • Removed the charging percent text from the pull up settings.
  • When charging, it will now alternate between the battery percentage in the middle and a charging symbol.

Version 1.0 - Update 3 (Busybox fix)
  • Fixed the dependency that the ramdisk had on busybox, specifically run-parts.

Version 1.0 - Update 2 (charging light)
  • Enabled the led charging light in the ramdisk as per popular request.

Version 1.0 - 3g fix
  • Fixed permissions in /system/bin. This was causing issues with 3g connections.
  • Replaced framework-res.apk with a less modified version. There is no SIP calling and sms now, but the activation screens work now.

Turning the charging light off
Using root explorer, or other file manager that gives you enough control, move the "enableChargingLight" file in /data/tiamat_controls into the directory /data/tiamat_controls/not_in_use​

Automatically installing applications when you flash the rom:
In the zip file, under the directory "data" there is a directory called "tiamat_first_boot_install". You can place all of your apk files that you want installed when you first boot in there. This is useful for applications such as Thumb Keyboard and Titanium Backup​

2.0.1 update is out guys. I'm sure it'll be added here soon. That way you won't have to go to XDA and wade through all the bickering and complaining of the elitists telling everyone else what to do, and how to do it. In 2.0.1 there is an updated battery icon similar to the previous one. Circle with percentage displayed, as well as a few other changes. So far, 2.0/2.0.1 is running great for me. No need to wipe if coming from 1.1 so definitely worth checking out. Another great job by Team Tiamat!

Maybe a bad download... Did you check the md5's?
