    I Just made a nice DII pad rom for use on models with S/N D201208Bxxxxx with 1gb ram
    it has 120 line density
    Google play - thanks to vampirefo
    wifi based gps - thanks to jimc3
    all the bloat removed
    kindle works
    removed ugly wallpaper
    it has a boot animation
    it has busybox and superuser
    new launcher 2 which is snappier
    added dsp manager
    added inverted Apollo
    1Mobile Market - replaced by Google Play Store
    FileExplore - replaced by OI File Manager v1.1.4
    Google Music - replaced by Apollo and DSPManager
    Kingsoft Office - replaced by Quickoffice v5.0.109
    Launcher - 9 mb copy of launcher 2 instead of the stock 17 mb
    Super-HD player - replaced by Google Gallery
    Pulse - replaced by Google News & Weather v1.3.04.

    I also have an app pack for most files you want to reinstall (like flash player) Link Here

    -instructions
    make sure your on the latest update, i have it on my server along with a copy of the original recovery
    1. make sure the rom is on a external sd card.
    2. flash it with vampirefo's SN_D201208Bxxxxx recovery (i made a hack pack with bat files for an easy install and adb drivers)
    3. in recovery format everything except your sdcard. (this is under mounts and storage)
    4. install rom
    5. enjoy!
    6. -optional- you need to reinstall recovery after you install this rom

    files are here
    Myfishbear's Rom Server ./DIIpad

    -tips-
    do not oc over 1.1 ghz it will mess your d2pad up (fried one @1.2ghz and returned it lol)
    try no-frills cpu and set it to min clock 204mhz max clock 1.008ghz interactive gov with noop scheduler for longer battery life
    don't update Netflix
    use screen filter in play store to make the screen darker so you can save more power

    I might actually try this... I have been trying to get vampirefo's ROM to work with DSP manager and unfortunately, my need for a working DSP manager is just creating more problems :confused: (see this post). I purchased this tablet (d201208bxxxxx) exclusively for in-car use as a glorified MP3 player running only a couple of apps, the most resource intensive of which being the Project M live wallpaper. I have it configured to be always ON when there is a power source (car ignition) and sleep/standby after 15 seconds. If I do not pause playback before sleep, it continues to playback audio and drains the tablet battery which is something I can live with. It sounds like you have a pretty good grasp of the CPU governors and power management. My question is, is there any kind of power optimizing, management or APK trimming I could do to the system to better optimize your ROM for this type of application? I really only need the Play Store, Project M, Car Tunes and oh yeah, 32gb of music!!! :cool:

    well with android, any app you instal technically runs like 24/7 due to the nature of Linux/unix. so i deleted all the crap off the device that may drain power. i chose Apollo over Google music cuz it uses less energy. i also used a 9 mb copy of launcher 2 instead of the stock 17 mb. i like using no frills and interactive, this allows good performance yet scales the cpu down to 200mhz when it isnt needed. i get about 12 hours out of this. if im watching flash videos its about 4 hours.(flash eats power)...
    to keep power drain to a minimum id install titanium backup and delete kindle and netflix and any other app you don't use, (try not to del any system essential apps tho.) and use no frills cpu 200-1ghz interactive and noop for a good balance of performance and battery saving. you can even lower your max to 800 if you want.
    btw when using dsp manager use the phone speaker eq it controls the whole device(headphone and bluetooth do nothing lol)

    Very nice ROM... the audio on my D2 is noticeably more stable (that is probably because of OEM driver modules and/or sound libraries). My DSP Manager still does not work at all and I did test using the stock Apollo player under the "speaker setting" just so you know. I really need an EQ that will work off the headphone jack anyway so it looks like more testing is needed! Honestly, I am just a cheapskate and hate buying milk when I got a cow at home (or something like that ;)).

    if you edit the eq in phone speaker it will effect the headphone jack and speaker, if you select headphone jack it does nothing. did you apply the update from d2 b4 flashing? i did. i also tested it myself and it works fine on mine and my gf's as well
    you could try wiping data on dsp manager if all else fails you can try installing my modified beats audio patch http://omniimpact.com/android/roms/myfishbear/Droid 4 Roms/Patches/AddBeats.zip

    Okay, another try with vampirefo's CM7 and then back to your rom (both clean installs) confirms that DSP does indeed work with your rom including through the headphone jack. I am not sure why it quit on me, but it appears to be okay now. I am totally backing this sucker up! :cool:

    I am very pleased with myfishbear's D2pad rom. Very lightweight.
    In addition to removing the bloatware, there are a number of improvements:

    1Mobile Market - replaced by Google Play Store
    FileExplore - replaced by OI File Manager v1.1.4
    Google Music - replaced by Apollo and DSPManager
    Kingsoft Office - replaced by Quickoffice v5.0.109
    Launcher - 9 mb copy of launcher 2 instead of the stock 17 mb
    Super-HD player - replaced by Google Gallery
    Pulse - replaced by Google News & Weather v1.3.04.

    I installed the recommended apps:

    Screen Filter v1.2 (haxor industry) - set to 50% (can it run at startup?)
    No-frills CPU Control v1.26r1 (sineo) - set it to min clock 204mhz max clock 1.008ghz interactive gov with noop scheduler for longer battery life

    I also installed Google Maps v6.14.1. For My Location to work, you must enable google location services in Settings.

    Somewhere on the net someone recommended Better Battery Stats and CPU Spy.

    Better Battery Stats 1.11.0.0 - for ICS provides missing battery stats
    CPU Spy v0.4.0 - seems to duplicate Better Battery Stats CPU States

    CPU Spy and Better Battery Stats CPU States both verify that No-frills CPU is working and if your device is really going into deep sleep.

    Better Battery Stats showed many partial wakelocks for AudioOut_1, so I disabled some things in Settings regarding sounds and the partial wakelocks for
    AudioOut_1 disappeared.

    sound / ringtone and notification - silent
    sound / touch sounds - off
    sound / screen lock sound - off

    I usually turn off wifi when not in use, but I also set wifi / advanced / keep wifi on during sleep = only when plugged in.

    I've been happy with the battery life. These stats are for a mixed use of apps that needed wifi and some that did not.

    During one 3-hour period my battery dropped from 100% to 54%.
    During one 4-hour period my battery dropped from 100% to 15%.
    During one 4-hour period my battery dropped from 62% to 1%.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Myfishbear's rom worked fine, but unfortunately my D201208Bxxxxx D2pad had problems booting and I returned it, getting a D201209Bxxxxx D2pad in exchange.

    The boot problems were not related to a specific rom. I tried Myfishbear's, Thunderbold, and the stock Diablotek rom. With all of these roms it required two or more attempts to get it to boot up. It might take two or more long presses to get the boot to start and sometimes it stalled at the Android dude, prior to seeing the "d2" logo. Another problem was that, if I left it in deep sleep for a length of time, it appeared that it shut itself down and required rebooting. Upon rebooting No-frills CPU said "unclean shutdown".

    So far the new D201209Bxxxxx D2pad has been working OK and I installed Thunderbolt (tb9.zip) on it. I bought a second D201209Bxxxxx D2pad for my wife and installed Thunderbolt on it also.

    My d2 pad is stuck on the D2 screen after I accidentally put "reboot recovery" in the CW recovery. How do I fix this?

    Edited-Never mind. I fixed it by reflash the firmware. I just installed your rom. It works great!

    Hi!

    I've tried all the available roms posted here and this seems to be the smoothest running to me. I have a couple questions though.

    1st - The Apollo music player doesn't see the music on my SD card. If I use the file manager and go to the mp3 file on my card and try to run it, It gives me an error that there is no app for that.

    2nd - Because of the above issue, I had to install another music player. My favorite being Double-twist but when I play music and the device goes into standby and the screen goes off, about 30 seconds later the music stops sometimes. Not sure if its double-twist or something with the tablet going into sleep mode.

    I tried wiping the device and re-installing the ROM without the No-frills CPU Control, it does the same thing. Any ideas?

    If a music player doesn't see the music on your SD card, check Settings / Storage / Media Scan and see if "Enable media scanning on SD" is checked. I believe it is after a fresh install.
