    Slatedroid ROMs need to be modified slightly to work on our tablet.

    In general you only need to replace utscript and u-boot.bin with the files from our OFW and add the utmodules from the Alldro2 firmware (copy them to /system/utmodules or sometimes /system/modules, depending on the ROM).

    Sometimes you also need to use the kernel files (zImage, zImage.debug) from the Alldro2 firmware.

    I'll release a Volcano Beta 6 with a couple fixes today.

    PS: I'm making a new logo image for the ROM, when i finish it i'll share it with you if you wanna include it in your releases.

    I used ADB to change the build.prop to 11 and while there are a few apps with FC (Google Body, Aldiko, etc) I was able to get a few Honeycomb apps to install and run (ReTab, HoneyReader, etc)

    All the videoplayers that i tested runs only in soft decode mode (which is **** when playing videos of 3mbps and above). This is HC related or is because the rom isn't complet yet ?

    Also, steev, do you think the tablet will be slower when the rom is complete, or will be at the same level of a 2.3 rom ?

    Probably hardware accelerated video playback isn't working yet. We'll do our best to fix it.

    Hopefully it will be on par with 2.3 or faster when it is finished. I am not 100% sure myself.

    Great update, thanks

    1) Contacts Sync
    You can get contact syncing working on this one by looking at this post, downloading the file : [SCRIPT] Honeycomb Install - Market, GMail, Talk, Contacts, Maps - xda-developers
    And just using the line
    adb push GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk /system/app
    You can also install GMail that way, the other sections are not needed since those programs are already on the phone

    2) Better app compatibility : Enable screen rotation, apps like Kindle won't open if screen rotation is disabled and crash with the message
    "Binary XML file line #28: Error inflating class fragment", Kindle still has issues downloading but will open now

    Other apps like Mantono Reader crash in any rotation with and without compatibility mode enabled giving an error like :
    Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: com.mantano.android.library.fragment.FilterBookFragment cannot be cast to android.app.Fragment
    which I guess has something to do with the SDK

    Correction -> Kindle works if you use an older version (download and views work fine) http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=468124&d=1292759939
