    Tsunami Custom Firmware for Herotab C8 & compatibles.

    The developer:
    Mr. T. L. Bardell Jr., or tlbardelljr, is a well known & most popular custom firmware (CFW) developer for the Viewsonic gTablet. He is best known for the CFW Flashback Android 3.0 HoneyComb. The CFW has approximately 50,000 users worldwide. In addition, he developed other CFW's based on Android 2.2 Froyo & Android 2.3 Gingerbread plus the contribution to the development of HoneyComb custom kernel. His latest contribution is the Tsunami CFW, which is based on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, for the Herotab C8 & compatibles tablets.

    The features:
    . Current version 1.8
    . Gingerbread 2.3.4

The latter one is most unique among all current firmwares, either stock and custom. The default setting allows apps & user data to be installed and stored on the external sdcard.

    Review:
    Tsunami Website [ROM] Tsunami - Gingerbread V1.7 12/04/11 [Herotab C8] - SlateDroid.com

    We tested the firmware on a couple of C8's and a C8M.
    After downloading the firmware from the original posting at Slatedroid, we extracted the content of the firmware onto an micro sdcard (which was previously formatted in FAT 32), then inserted it into a TF slot of the tablet and booted up with Menu + Power buttons. The first boot took over a minute. Regular boot up time afterward was exceptional quick, in under a minute.

    Our first impression was WOW. App window flied across the screen beautifully and smoothly unlike anything that we have seen on other firmwares.
    After wifi setting and google account setup, which was a snap, we connected to market. All our apps were there for downloading. We also tried to search and install a few free apps & games. No problem whatsoever.
    We love Plants vs Zombies, Fieldrunners HD and Asphalt 6.0. After restoring the apps & there games' data, the games played effortlessly. Some users reported issue with certain 3D games and requested a lower CPU setting. The Tsunami development team agreed to consider that option in a future release. See our list of tested games below.
    We tested google earth and google maps with street view option. No surprise there. Everything displayed smoothly and effortlessly.
    We tested Aldiko reader, BBC News, CNN news, Opera web browser, youtube, mail and a few others. Everything worked well.
    Video streaming is important to us, so we downloaded UPnPlay and Rockplayer. UPnPlay connected to our HP MediaSmart Server quickly and Rocplayer kicked in to stream. Our collection of videos is mostly in 720P and in mkv, mp4, avi, flv. All streamed well without lagging with our D-Link DGL4500 and Netgear WNDR 3800.
    We tested NTFS and BlueTooth. All worked well. We did not test 3G as we have no equipment. Some users reported that 3G function needs more fine tune. The development team mentioned that future release will address that, plus a few other features that users requested.
    In summary, we found the Tsunami CFW to be most pleasant and useful to use. Perhaps we could summed up it up in three words, Funtional + Stable + Speedy. We highly recommended this CFW over any others that are currently available.
