    [L-ROM] Tenchi's PAC-MAN ROM Lollipop Android 5.1.1 for ADAM [WIP][2015-09-20]

    This is a build of the latest Android PAC-MAN ROM Lollipop 5.1.1 ROM based on CM 12.1 with lots of customization. This includes USB fixes from ri9000 and NVOMX, screen capture, HDMI, and gcc patches from timduru.

    For more info goto the main web site here:

    For now it is a nvflash release as there are some issues with building zip file.

    Currently overclocked to 1.5GHz, to edit PixelQi settings, clock speed, sleep mode and other settings edit /system/etc/

    Install Instructions for Windows NVFLASH package

    1. Download from links below the ROM, any updated boot.img if needed, no google apps download available yet.
    2. Extract nvflash ROM zip file.
    3. default 924mb system so no need to rename anything now.
    4. Connect Adam via usb to computer.
    5. Set Adam to nvflash recovery mode by holding Volume - and power on.
    6. Goto driver manager in Windows and you should see some APX device, and right click on update the driver for this device.
    7. Set Browse driver to Drivers/Driver32-bit/ and install.
    8. run "fbs.bat" to just install ROM and wait till it finished flashing or run "download.bat" to completely format your Adam internal storage and install complete ROM with ClockWorkMod Recovery and a 650 Meg system partition by default.
    9. Reboot Adam while holding Volume + to go into ClockWorkMod recovery.
    10. Wipe data/factory reset. (This will wipe all data from your internal sdcard and the cache).
    11. Install Google and SuperSU to root if needed.
    12. Skip to step 16 if you don't need to flash an updated boot.img
    13. Reboot while holding volume - to go into nvflash recovery again.
    14. Copy downloaded boot.img into your nvflash directory or extract boot.img from (if no updated boot image is available).
    15. Run "flashboot.bat boot.img" in command line.
    16. Restart after it is finished flashing and you will boot into your new Kitkat ROM.
    17. The only way I could get any android 5.1 rom booting without any surfaceflinger crashes was to use "adb pull /system/lib/egl egl" then "adb push egl /system/lib/egl" then it will boot everytime thereafter, must be an issue with built img file or something.

    How to install ROM and Google Apps zips from ClockworkMod

    1. Download the zip and ADB and USB drivers ZIP in download section.
    2. Follow "How to install ADB driver" instructions below.
    3. Make sure you have an alternate keyboard pre-installed before installing Google Apps otherwise you will get force closes of AOSP keyboard all the time.
    4. Power on Adam in recovery mode by holding Volume + and toggling power switch.
    5. On PC in command prompt type 'cd "adb directory"'
    6. If you want to install to micro sdcard refer to link for setup details: Booting from sdcard much faster! and Type 'adb shell setprop sdboot 1'.
    7. Type 'adb shell mount -a' ignore the errors (try again if you don't see any error message).
    8. If installing new ROM type adb shell rm -rf /system/* to remove previous ROM files and do Wipe Data/Factory Reset.
    9. Type 'adb push /external_sd/' (should see files being transferred to microsd).
    10. On Adam use volume keys or middle 2 soft touch keys to navigate up and down to "Install zip".
    11. Press top soft key button to enter selection.
    12. Navigate and enter to /storage/external_sd.
    13. Navigate and enter to your file.
    14. Navigate and enter to Yes to install, should be no errors.
    15. Reboot your Adam once the transfer is complete.

    How to install ADB driver

    1. Extract the ADB zip with archive utility like WinZip or WinRAR.
    2. Run UniversalAdbDriverSetup6.msi.
    3. Connect Adam to computer via USB.
    4. Right click on "My Computer" in File Explorer.
    5. Click on "Device Manager".
    6. Should see "Notion" with exclamation mark.
    7. Right click on "Notion" and select "Update Driver Software".
    8. Select "Browse my computer for driver software".
    9. Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
    10. Select "Android Device" and press Next.
    11. Select "Asus Transformer ADB Interface" and press Next.
    12. Ignore Update Driver Warning and press Yes.

    Had to diddle egl to get it to boot. Hardware video acceleration works. This rom after xx minutes "stalls" (nothing responds) -- I suspect becaue it "exhausts memory". I was unable to get 'swapon' to work.

    If the adb connection gets broken (usb cable is unpluged; or Adam goes to sleep) then it takes a reboot to get adb working again.

    Updated PAC-ROM on front page with more power off/restart stability and Splashtop Remote and maybe other video streaming apps may be working now. Also note that Open Google Apps currently not working as of 2015-08-13, so use PA Google Apps until further notice.

    If someone is willing to post some logcat and dmesg logs, I could have another look at it, otherwise I can't do much as I don't have a 3G Adam.
