    [ROM/MOD - 1.2 ] FrankenTAB [G-TABLET/ZPAD T2]

    Updated 03/14/2012 FrankenTAB v1.1.0

    FrankenTAB aims to pick up where the gtab-devs left off with the Froyo based VEGAn-TAB 1.00 b5.1.1 (our v001a is a direct port of b5.1.1 to BL 1.2 with a clemsyn kernel). The current build is a heavily modified Brilliant Corners 1.3.1 base (advanced version of VEGAn-TAB 1.00 b5.1.1), with an overclockable (1.6ghz) & undervoltable kernel from the Clemsyn universal Froyo Skype Fix.

    1) This MOD is based on Roebeets' Brilliant Corners ROM for the GTablet. See the description for Brilliant Corners for more info.

    2) I am using the latest kernel and WIFI drivers (Skype/SOD/PPP fixes) from Clemsyn, all thanks for the speed of this ROM should go to him.... not me. This ROM is overclockable (to 1.6Ghz) and undervoltable via SetCPU (Get it from XDA if you are a member, or from the market if you want to support the developer)

    3) Jcp171, Cobey, and Sharpe351 have been a huge help to me with FrankenTAB. Much thanks goes out to them for their continued help and support.

    4) I got the blessing from GoJimi to include the newest version of VTL Launcher in our rom (v1.7.5 - This is NOT on the market yet). I would suggest that you drop in over at http://vegantab.gojimi.com/ to see what's going on with the OFFICIAL VEGAn-TAB ROM, which is based on GINGERBREAD, and show your support for further development of VTL Launcher by purchasing the release version from the Android Market or via a donation on the VT-Labs / VEGAn-TAB website.

    INSTALLATION NOTES:

    Before attempting to install this ROM, please understand how to use NVFlash (Roebeets thread) to restore your system should something go wrong.

    You will ABSOLUTELY need to do a data wipe / factory reset with CWM BEFORE install. I also recommend formatting your sdcard and wiping the dalvik cache before install. my current procedure is:

    1) NVFlash to version a 1.2 bootloader base image including CWM
    2) Perform my wipes in CWM (data / cache / Dalvik / Format SD)
    3) Mount the Tablet via USB from inside CWM / Copy all the needed files to the tablet
    4) Install the Rom in CWM
    5) Reboot

    In more extreme cases a tougher wipe may be necessary:

    0) MAKE BACKUPS OF WHAT YOU WANT TO KEEP
    1) boot into CWM and format your sd card to 4096/0 then back to 2048/0 (this has cleared some of the problems for some people)
    2) format dalvik cache
    2a) -skip this step the first time you try, but it may end up being necessary- NVFlash back to a stock 1.2 setup that includes NVFlash (if you are on windows, I posted my NVFlash folder link (HERE) that has a few batch files for stock or CWM recovery)
    3) wipe data / factory reset (in CWM)
    4) -my method- format /system & /data (by doing this, it basically makes blank, formatted partitions)
    4a) wipe dalvik cache again! especially if you let your system fully boot after the NVFlash - CLEAR THAT CRAP OUTTA THERE!!!
    5) mount usb and copy over the zip file to the root of your internal sd card (which should be empty after part 1 - if not repeat step 1)
    6) install zip from sd card
    7) Reboot.

    MAJOR RELEASE NOTE: The version 1.1.0 release is a full installation package with a completely new base. As such, please make a backup of your data just in case a full wipe becomes necessary during your upgrade process. I highly recommend a fresh start, but since we are upgrading the kernel, a wipe of the dalvik cache is mandatory at the very least.

    APPLICATION COMPATIBILITY: KNOWN ISSUES as of release v1.1.0

    (Thanks to Jcp171, Cobey, and EVERYONE for helping work through the app testing):

    General Apps:

    1. Market: Working properly with the standard market fix... slightly limited before the fix.

    2. Skype: working. I have been using it for a while now and it seems to work like a champ.

    E-mail:

    1. Default E-mail: Works great, but being a non-Gingerbread ROM, Secure Corporate E-Mail setups may not work (Mine does not because of lack of appropriate security suppprt)

    File Managers:

    1. ES File Manager: Ran fine, was able to give file manager root. UPDATE: You can just long-press the STAR icon to get to the root directory. (THANKS bdds13!)

    2. iFileManager: Works fine, but is just a basic file manager. For root access use ES file explorer or root explorer.

    Utilities:

    1. Anreboot: Fine for reboots, but DO NOT USE THIS TO REBOOT INTO RECOVERY. It will likely only ever reboot into recovery forcing you to NVFlash the device to get it working again.

    Games:

    1. Plants Vs Zombies: (Doesn't work)Loaded and got all the way into the first level but quickly crashed. Will crash at some point either loading or trying to play. At the most it's extremely unstable...

    2. Gem Spinner II: Not functional

    3. Game compatibility with several games improved (Cut the rope now works) by removing the undervolt and returning voltages to default levels (still at 1.6ghz). May vary tab to tab... (Note: Even lowering the speed to 1ghz did not change Plants vs Zombies or Gem Spinners non-functional statuses...)

    Any other apps we tested worked. Please let us know if you find an app with a problem and we can make sure to confirm the issue to help Pix out.

    SPECIAL ADDITIONS:

    "I have included 1.6 ghz, Skype fix, PPP. With PPP, I had to upgrade the wifi drivers to get it to build so not sure SOD fix will hold but please test for me thanks." - Clemsyn

    Clemsyn has asked us to test his latest kernel build for froyo with SOD protection, Skype fix, and PPP support. Grab the download and let the testing begin. If it goes well I will incorporate it into the v1.1.0 release of FrankenTAB. UPDATE 02/08/2012 - This will be the new default kernel in the v1.1.0 release - all tests confirm this to be an excellent release from clemsyn.


    Grab FrankenTABv001a from HERE
    - v001a is based on VeganTAB 5.1.1 just ported to the 1.2 BL with clemsyns kernel and a market update. (Still seems to be fairly popular - I will continue to support v001a as best I can for those looking for the classic VEGAN experience on the 1.2 boot loader.)
