    Thanks for the list. If someone out there has used them all - a matrix of pros and cons would be awesome to add to this list!

    I flashed my Gtablet to the TNT lite Rom and it seems to work pretty well and I now have the application Market. Can you tell me if there is a better rom here to flash to my Gtablet? Thanks Tom

    Hey folks, my VegaN is starting to get really borky and everything is FCing all over the place. Short of a complete data wipe, any ideas? Maybe wipe Dalvik in Recovery? :confused:

    And if THAT doesn't work, there is a stable release of CM7 that I want to install but xda warns to ONLY use CWMod .8 doing it. I have an earlier version of CWMod. Can I just flash the new CWMod update.zip in the old recovery and it will reflash it? How does THAT work? If not, how to I get from Point A to Point B here?

    EDIT: NVM, stupid me booted into recovery and I AM running bekit's CWMod 0.8. I'm such a friggin' genius sometimes LOL BUT... the Dalvik wipe didn't work. Everything still FCs so I guess the next step is a complete data wipe and start from scratch on VegaN, unless you guys can think if something else that could be causing this...

    Thanks!

    EDIT AGAIN: Yep, it took a data wipe/factory reset to set all things right. Sadly, even though I logged into the Tablet's gmail account, none of the apps reinstalled... no big deal, just an inconvenience. So all is well with the daughter's tablet again. For now :rolleyes:

    Before a complete data wipe and factory reset, try just clearing the contacts apk cache and data. Or maybe a repartition of the internal card if you haven't done that yet. Also, don't forget to nandroid backup, that might save u some time.

    Have u tried the HC Rom yet? Its pretty cool especially the Roebeet + clemsyns combo. Usually when something goes wrong with my gtab, I take it as a sign to try something new for a little while then go back to my stable rom if necessary. :D

    Fyi- the HC rom uses a different bootloader but I'm sure you'll be ok since your a Rom'ing vet. ;)

    A ROMming vet? Yes... an expert at it? HA! And again I say, HA!

    Thanks for the tip, XMR, but what the daughter is looking for is a working gTablet, not an experimental platform that needs continuous work and tweaking. So even if I could find a stable HC ROM for it (can't seem to find it yet to check it out), I'm not sure how to go about changing the bootloader. I ROM very rarely these days, as the gTablet's pretty much set on a stable Froyo ROM and my Droid doesn't like Gingerbread - so I've still got all our 3 Droids set on UltimateDroid 2.5 :eek:

    I guess you could say I know just enough about rooting and ROMming to be successfully dangerous :D

    i just split the ROM's by bootloader to avoid confusion for new users; also added two HC builds and a few others from SlateDroid.

    Solid Orange,

    The 1.1 version of "Bottle of Smoke" (Honeycomb) has been renamed to GtabComb (alpha 1.6 based on BOS_a6.0). There was much discussion over at XDA on what to call it. It is based on Bottle of Smoke but since Roebeet is not a developer on this one, the name got changed to prevent confusion.

    No Sweat. :) Besides I like coming to this list to find roms. It's easier to navigate than XDA sometimes (um... most times). :)

    Is there any source for a quick list of user feedback on each, or maybe a list of strengths and weaknesses? Also, are the HC rom's stable and worth installing for day-to-day use, or just for experimentation for now?

    mtbcpa,

    The honeycomb roms are in alpha so in theory they aren't meant for day to day use, however, I've found the one I'm using (GtabComb) to be rather stable and I am using it daily. It's not perfect, HD video is lacking a bit because there hasn't been a Tegra driver for anything higher than Froyo yet. But I'm liking it fine.

    The rom I was using before this was Vegan Gingerbread (which also doesn't have the HD viewing juice either) but everything else ran really well.

    Thanks for the info! Just curious, why did you go with GTabComb and not Bottle of Smoke? I think I will give this a try.

    Gtabcomb is just bottle of smoke ported for the 1.1 bootloader.

    Yep what Solid said. :) I'm still on the 1.1 bootloader and I'm not ready to upgrade to 1.2 yet. If my tablet came with 1.2 on it I probably would have gone to Bottle of Smoke. (I got my tablet back in March, what a difference a few months make). ;)

    I will no doubt do the upgrade, but just not yet. :D

    Just saying, the "Deck" ROM that's listed in the first post, is based on the 1.1 BL, NOT 1.2.

    Thank you so much for this list! It led to giving the upgrade to gtabcomb 3.3 a try. I now enjoy my gtab more with the new ROM. Thanks!! :D
