Default Team DRH ICS Beta 4.0

I'm not going to copy and paste the contents of the original thread because I'm not sure if they would want that but I will copy and paste the thread link.

As of right now, we're waiting for the dl links to go live. I can't wait! I'm charging up the gtab and installing the new CWM recovery once my gtab is fully charged.

Please read the entire first post.

Our "lowly" gtabs have an ICS rom...take that Viewsonic!

It worked in the alpha trials so I am sure it will work with the beta

It's still a beta so I'll doubt it's going to be a 100%. But I think it'll make the gtab more appealing.

Also it seems as if it still has the rom slowdowns that the alpha had. Seemed to happen frequently while browsing and by slow down it does mean slow.

So I got it installed and played around with it for an hour.

I used the NVflash method to revert back to stock 1.2 bootloader with the newest CWM pre-loaded. The actual installation process was painless. It took longer to boot and go through the intial setup than it was to install the ROM.

There are a lot of slow downs at first with the UI but that goes away. There's still slow downs on certain apps particularly the new google apps. It reminds me of the first couple of HC roms that popped up. The ROM is usable but it's not polished by any means. I'm assuming things will get better once the kernel settles in.

One thing I love is Youtube HD. This alone will probably make me endure the ROM's shortcomings. I haven't tried flash on the browser yet but I did try out a few HD video clips using QQplayer and Mobo. They looked great no hiccups and video was smooth.

That's it for now.

Fixing permissions seems to speed up the rom a little. Also downloading from the market seems to start quicker.

This rom seems to start up in 10-20 seconds compared to all the other rom's that took a couple minutes. I love the new boot time

Edit: battery now charges to 100% after fixing permissions!

Ahhh, I forgot about fixing permissions. Anyways, my gtab got stuck in recovery boot loop after I went in there to clear batt stats to try to fix the battery issue.

If anyone else gets stuck, here's the fix below.

I think the latest update has "1e" at the end of the rom file. So if you're using that one, that should be the latest one.

I agree with Prime it seems a little less laggy. The apps don't timeout as often.

The improvement in the 3/1/2012 update has improved the rom by 10-fold! I hardly have any issues. plus, installing the new Go Launcher HD tablet UI sped things up even further

Darn! I really wanted to root my gtab to this rom of ICS but it did not work for me. I used the NVflash method to revert back to stock 1.2 bootloader with the newest CWM pre-loaded. Then I did the install from the internal sd using the 3DGtaB-GAppZ-8.1.zip file. When I try booting the tablet, it never comes up, then if I reboot again, it comes up on the viewsonic version of the rom with tapntap.

Did you just flash the gapps file? If you did you also need to flash the actual ics rom. And you need to make sure you follow the entire process including repartitioning the internal memory.

Ahhhh Ok.... thanks xmr. I'm at work now so and just saw the ROM file that I missed. Yeah I just did the gapps and didn't notice that I had to do the ROM also. I'm downloading now and will give it a try. Thanks a bunch! I'll let you know how it goes.

Worked great! However, after I got the gtab running the rom, I downloaded the AnyConnect ICS app from the market and established a vpn connection with my work. I was hitting a web application and my tablet totally froze, couldn't reboot, couldn't turn it off, was totally frozen. Had to pop the case apart to get to the internal reset button. Tried again and it rebooted itself a couple of times, then totally froze up again. Ended up draining the battery before I had time to pop the case open again but once I had a charge going, came up ok. Don't know why the vpn app is killing it.

There's also a gapps file you'll have to load. Oh and don't forget that the market is now the play store.

Quick question,
I have lost track of what I have installed right now and what the latest version of this ICS ROM is.
Looks like I have ICS-Preview-2A installed.

To update to the latest version, is it necessary to completely wipe or can I just wipe data and dalvik then flash the new ROM (Beta, right?)

If you still have the Preview ROM installed, I would follow the entire how to install process found in the link above.

When DRH went to full beta, they required that you have a 250M system partition. If you don't know, then there's a NVflash file you have to flash.

Don't forget to back up all the data you have in your internal memory if you still need to repartition your internal SD card or else you'll lose everything.

When DRH went to full beta, they required that you have a 250M system partition. If you don't know, then there's a NVflash file you have to flash.

Don't forget to back up all the data you have in your internal memory if you still need to repartition your internal SD card or else you'll lose everything.
Cool, that should be straight forward. I don't need anything thats on there except the apps. If I back them up with Titanium backup, then transfer that backup directory to my PC I should be able to restore everything once I have TB installed on the tablet with the new ROM, right?

I wouldn't. When a Dev instructs to do a full wipe, I normally do not restore apps and data with TB. But that's based on my experience.

I never do data, just the app itself. I always thought that was acceptable and actually the point of using TB ?

Yeah that's what TB is for but I'm saying I don't use it when I do a clean install of a ROM. You can totally do it if you prefer. Like I said that's just me.
