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
  • Quick Controls aka statusbar controls / "Zeus mod"
  • Tiamat settings
  • 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!
  • Complete localisation support. This means that we have complete support for european devices and their languages.
  • Screenshot support

General Features
  • Powered by Tiamat Kernel Tachi 2.1.0 (stock gpu).
  • Pre rooted with su and Superuser
  • Pre-installed busybox and iwmulticall.

Release Notes

2.2.2 Release Notes
Yet another update for the rom. Quite a few changes this time.

As usual, this can be flashed cleanly over 2.2.1.

2.2.1 Release Notes
You are able to flash 2.2.1 over 2.2.0 as it is mainly just bug fixes.

2.2.0 Release Notes
Boy has it been a busy last 2 weeks.

I have built a build system where we now do the majority of our coding in java. Yep java, not smali.
We now have quick controls, in the status bar settings menu.

This rom is mainly just a feature release. Unfortuantly if you had any issues regarding gmail in hammerhead, you will likely get the same issues in this release.

This rom is also still based of 3.2. Yeah I know I said I would be doing 3.2.2, but things change.
-- solarnz.

  • The browser UA string setting now sticks.
  • Reverted to the stock User Agent string.

  • You are now able to enable wifi & bluetooth via quick controls while airplane mode is active. You will need to enable this through the quick control settings first however.
  • Disabling rotation in the quick controls will now freeze the rotation of the screen, instead of locking at the landscape position.
  • New adbWireless quick control

  • 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)

  • 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.


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​

Hey everyone ,

New to the xoom but not new to deving or modding my devices. I am curious however, what do I need to do to get CWM to recognize my external sd card.

It should automatically recognize it. The sdcard is under the external 1..
Thanks. Turned out I was using the wrong version of cwm. Switched to the correct recovery and it worked great. I am excited to start working on a theme for this.

Um, I can't seem to login using a Google account... upgraded from 2.0.1 to 2.2 . No fc's, but Google account isn't an option under settings and I can't get to market or any Google apps... any experience with this issue / fixes?

Did you perform a data wipe / factory reset prior to upgrading the ROM? Install instructions say to perform wipe if coming from anything other than Hammerhead (2.1). Might be what is causing the problem.

Love this rom! My xoom is so fast, smooth and responsive. The quick controls are great. Thanks for all the hard work!

I for one would like to say this thread is veeeeeeeeeeeerrrrry tricky. An update to 2.2.2 and not even a thread title update - very sneaky sir.

Also since the boom with 3.2.2 and everyone (that is cool) is getting the LTE upgrade are we going to see a new Tiamat ROM? If the hold up is thinking of new shark type.. I'd like to suggest Mako or Sandtiger. :grin3:

I'm fairly certain katana is a kernel & moray is a ROM. Flashing katana merely changes the kernel while Moray will update your over-all experience (and kernel). If you want to flash Moray 2.2(.2) I would do Titanium Backup, Nandroid backup, then flash the Moray ROM. You'll have to log in to your gMail account but things like wifi & bluetooth should come back automagically. Once you're in use TiBu to restore user apps & their data. Restoring system apps is frowned upon but if it works for you go ahead & try.
