As we near the end of the season and OEMs are finally starting to catch up to our Jelly Bean development, the unofficial ports of Jelly Bean have begun to slow down. Mostly because (nearly) every conceivable device is already running it. However, when a popular ROM hits a device, it can still be a big deal. A prime example is the ASUS Transformer TF700, also known as the Infinity, which received an unofficial CM10 port.
When we first started bringing you news of Jelly Bean, the ports were alpha builds with a lot of things wrong with them. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. The TF700 CM10 port is working pretty well, with only a few minor issues. This comes after much hard work from XDA Senior Member nycbjr, who fixed the device tree and created the first AOSP Jelly Bean port for the device, and thus aided subsequent work such as this one by XDA Senior Member hiemanshu. In the words of hiemanshu:
Would love to thank CM for their great work and nycbjr who spent a lot of time on this
Hiemanshu says the only really big issues are the GPS doesn’t work and some screen tearing in portrait mode on certain applications. Everything else seems to work, including:
Wifi, BT, Audio, Camera, HDMI Out
So if you don’t use portrait mode often and you don’t plan on taking advantage of the GPS capabilities, then this could very well be a daily driver for you. If you happen to need those features, stay tuned because fixes are on the way. For additional information, check out the original thread._________
