    UPDATED 01/14/12

    Disclaimer (borrowed from lfom): This custom firmware was tested on a MID7024 and worked fine, but you are solely responsible for its use. If it bricks your tablet you've been warned.

    Features:
    - Honeycomb UI
    - Integrated v6 SuperCharger and kickass kernel tweaks (the install scripts are in /system/xbin if you want to change the settings)
    - Support for startup scripts in /etc/init.d (used by v6 supercharger)
    - Rooted
    - 1.5 GB data partition for apps storage
    - CRT lock screen animation
    - Customized theme with UOT (Battery icon with percentage, window animations, Ubuntu fonts)
    - Google apps
    - NTFS support (1.0+)
    - USB gamepad support + driver for PS3 controller (1.0+)

    To disable HoneyComb theme:
    - Delete "honeycomb_ui_patch.tgz from the patches folder before flashing.

    To enable overclocking:
    - Move the file extra/u-boot_overclock.bin into the main folder and rename it to "u-boot.bin"

    Tips for safe flashing:
    - Use a freshly formated FAT32 SD card
    - "Safely remove" your SD card before removing it from your PC to ensure the data is completely written
    - Charge your battery before updating
    - Check the md5sum of your download to make sure the file isn't corrupted

    Screenshots (outdated, will update soon)

    Looks great! How did you get the wifi signal in HC launcher to be blue? And the CRT animation?

    Again, congrats for your release/mods. ;)

    Thanks :)

    For the blue wifi signal:
    In UOT go to Icons, check "enable this mod", check "Black status bar icons", and select "G12 Honeycomb"

    For the CRT animation, I just followed this tutorial
    [MOD] Enable CRT Animation in Gingerbread - xda-developers

    Anyone knows if that rom fix the accelerometer of kyros 7024?
    In the other topic i asked this and a user said that the roms based on alldro2 should work in racing games, and other apps.
    Any ideas about that?
    I am not in my house right now, so i will download that rom later.

    Thanks steev for the rom, your work is amazing. =)

    I think I just found a fix.

    If you go to Settings>>Advanced Settings, and change Gravity Sensor Mode from "Old API mode (Old applications for Phone)" to "Normal mode (new applications for PAD)", most games seem to work properly. (tested Doodlegrub, Jet Car Stunts, Raging Thunder I and II)

    Some games (like Moto X Mayhem) seem to work better in "Old API mode"

    I love the Battery status Icon in your HC theme. can it be used in other themeing as well? Screen Shots look good Steev!

    also, this worked on my 1024. I just removed the checkbox and for a game that you rotate the display, it works perfectly now where it was reversed.

    Thanks

    Yeah, that's the "Honeycomb" battery icon from UOT.
    I think I will use it in the stock theme also next time.

    yea, UOT has some nice battery icons. I have a round one for my captivate that is pretty slick.

    beings that its almost holloween, let me take out my skeleton key and open up the bug crypt of generations past...
    1) does it loose wifi sync if the tablet falls asleep ?
    2) go to the android market on your pc and see your fingerprint. can you dnld anything ?
    3) does the music player work ( android sound service )
    4) if you wish the latest version of an app but the install is interrupted with an error message of "Package file was not signed correctly" ?
    5) does the hdmi talk to anything else beside 'LG' brand monitors ?

    3. Music player works
    4. Had that problem with ES file explorer and ES task manager. The apks were signed with a different key, so I removed them from the ROM.
    5. Can't test since I don't have an hdmi cable

    I'll check 1 and 2 when I can, unless somebody beats me to it.

    I did for a while, right after installing Market in a brand new MID1024. After some mods, it's gone...

    PS: new forum theme looks cool, and faster too. Maybe just a bit too "bright"... lol
