    WARNING! This Custom Firmware works only on 1024n boards, to know what board your tablet has please read this thread.

    This is a landmark on GingerLF, so I skipped V1.4 and started a new thread.

    Special props go to (sorry if I forgot someone):
    - Steev: the script master, source of most mods and code found here
    - Pickupman66, Vernox701, neferim and flxrms: tips and feedback
    - jmv_10: found and shared a AllDro2 Gingerbread ROM for smdkv10 based devices
    - Coby for releasing an official restore firmware
    - sunset0202 for the boot logo
    - Symbean for the amazing Honeycomb UI
    - Everyone who helped with the touchscreen drivers in this thread, specially SampNeves and dachabre.


    Features
    - Gingerbread 2.3
    - Root enabled (most recent Superuser package)
    - 1.5 GB of internal storage (more space for your apks, should work with any internal microSD card)
    - GAPPS for 2.3 and updated Market
    - Support for 3G, Bluetooth, GPS via USB and advanced HDMI enabled
    - Patch with support the more 3G modems, Ad-Hoc network and Ethernet USB dongle are optional (please report if they work)
    - Boot Animation: Honeycomb (secret)
    - Density LCD set to 160 (but can be changed later)
    - Database optimizations (acidmods package)
    - Vendor has its own file system now
    - Installation with information on screen and log
    - Can be installed from the internal SD
    - Option to not delete applications already installed and data (see below)
    - Choose a theme: standard or Honeycomb (see below)
    - Install custom apks during installation (see below)
    - Several optimizations aimed at performance and compatibility, using the fingerprint of the Galaxy Tab (can be changed via script provided).

    Disclaimer: This custom firmware was tested in a multi-touch MID1024 and worked fine, but you are solely responsible for its use. If it bricks your tablet you've been warned.


    Installation

    I recommend that you previously full format the microSD used for installation in FAT32 mode to make sure it is OK, and fully charge your tablet's battery.
    1. Download ZIP file
    2. Uncompress and copy its contents to the root folder of the microSD: you should see a file called "u-boot.bin" in the root folder of the microSD card
    3. If using an external microSD, safely eject the card from your computer and insert the card in the external slot
    4. Turn tablet off
    5. Turn on your tablet holding the Home button (silver one). Don't hold it for too long: as soon as you see some blue text on screen, release all buttons.

    Relax and wait. Errors will be logged to screen and to a file named log.txt on the microSD. First boot will be slow, hang on! It is recommended that you run fix_permissions using Terminal Emulator as root or adb at least once after installing the new version.


    V1.5 - EVO
    Download link - CFW-MID1024-GingerLF-V1.5 - Minus.com
    MD5 B3:07:28:D1:B7:23:24:F3:02:60:B9:B4:44:E8:C7:2F

    Customizations
    1. Don't want boot animation (will show standard Android), remove bootanimation.zip from update folder (or replace it with your own).
    2. Launcher: delete or rename honeycomb folder for stock theme.
    3. Custom apks: copy them to apk folder. Important: file names must not have any spaces! Rename the files if needed.
    4. If you want to enable a patch, move the file from DISABLED_PATCHES to patches.
    5. Delete or rename 0_DATA_WIPE if you want to keep your installed apps and data (not recommended if you upgrade from Froyo or V1.2 or lower).

    Note that if you install from internal SD or disable "DATA WIPE" that some features may not be availbe after installation. This is proabably the last version that will offer the option to install stock Gingerbread theme, and future updates will be supported and tested only if it's installed at least once with standard settings, including WIPE DATA.

    Enjoy. ;)



    Hotfix20111224 - Fixes Market and Terminal Emulator fc in early version, not needed if you downloaded the file starting 20111224 12:00UTC.
    Download link - CFW-MID1024-GingerLF-V1.5 - Minus.com
    MD5 A9:84:6A:20:55:94:68:D4:9B:60:DF:48:85:0A:1E:A7

    Installation - copy the file to the root folder of any microSD card, internal (/sdcard) or external (/extsd), rename it to upgrade.img, turn tablet off then turn it on while holding the silver (Home) button. It will display a message that it found utscript1.sh and will ask to confirm with VolumeUp (increase volume key, physical button on the side of the tablet). Confirm only if you see a message with utscript1.sh on it. If it displays something with "internal SD init", then cancel with VolumeDown and check file name and location.

    PATCHES - Installs 3g_outlay and search_hotspot patches (extended 3G dongle and ad-hoc support). Both are included in the CFW but disabled by default, so you can install then when installing CFW using instructions above or install later using this patch. It won't erase anything, so it's quick and won't touch your apps.
    Download link - CFW-MID1024-GingerLF-V1.5 - Minus.com
    MD5 24:40:65:D5:E4:DB:A0:3D:2D:6A:CA:1D:01:2A:3F:DD

    Installation - same as Hotfix above.

    @mharckk - LinkSD needs an aditional partition on the microSD card for it to work properly. Check its documentation.

    To fix your tablet, copy the files again to a microSD card using a computer and install it on tablet again. If you still have problem, then maybe your card is bad.

    Both are in the internal SD. Stock ROM uses only 512MB for applications ("Internal storage" in Settings), while mine reserves 1.5GB. No need to use Link2SD.


    @lionelannie thanks. ;)

    Ifom, if I upgrade the internal Microsd, is there a limit to the size I can use with your ROM. I know some firmware will only format up to 16GB. Thanks again for a great ROM.

    Did you replace the internal SD? If yes, and you have installed some firmware on it, then there is no reason mine won't work on it. If you plan to replace it then you can test, it will do no harm. At most you won't be able to load system, but it won't brick so you can easily replace the card again and install the firmware. If the installer doesn't recognize the internal SD it won't touch it also...

    OK Thanks. I have done it with the Flytouch 3 many times before, I was just curious if you had done it with yours. I haven't done it yet with the 1024 because I have read a couple of reports about the capacitive touch dying after just opening the case on the 8" and 10". doesn't make sense to me, but I want to investigate it a little further before I do.

    Very nice. I noticed some new things but I'm not sure which one is the surprise.

    The main app I use every day (CadreBible) is much faster and responsive.

    thanks.
