AOSP and CM10 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1

Two weeks ago, Jelly Bean source code was released. Since then, it’s been a frenzy on XDA as developers have worked hard to get the newest version of the OS ported to their devices. In that time, over two dozen devices have received Jelly Bean to some extent, and many more are bound to follow. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 are among the latest to get Jelly Bean. However, unlike many devices, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 actually have two Jelly Bean ports. One is pure AOSP and the other is CyanogenMod 10.

Despite some early release jitters, all four ROMs actually work quite well. XDA Senior Member safariking posted the pure AOSP build, while XDA Senior Member kallt_kaffe posted the CyanogenMod 10 for the Galaxy Tab 8.9. XDA Senior Member MapleSyrup posted both Jelly Bean ROMs for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Also, all four ROMs have had heavy developmental help from XDA Recognized Developer pershoot.

For the Galaxy Tab 8.9, there isn’t a running list of what’s working on the CyanogenMo10 port, aside from how 3G works. That said, it is listed as preview, so users should expect bugs here and there. The pure AOSP ROM seems to be more stable, as the only things reported not working are the camera and Google Now. Of course, so early in the development, there could likely be more broken features that have not yet been discovered. For the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the CyanogenMod 10 port seems almost stable, with the only thing listed as not working being the camera. The AOSP build seems a little more rough as 3G, 4G, and AGPS are listed as not working for some models.

All in all, these ROMs are quite usable, but users should note that these builds are far from complete. For download links, additional details, and more, check out the corresponding links below.

XPrivacy for Android Lollipop – XDA Xposed Tuesday

Have you ever been on the Google Play Store and saw an app that you wanted to try, but the sheer amount of permissions put you off? Why does a LED Color app need access to my calendar? Sometimes app developers tell you that it’s because of the ads. However, other times, apps don’t explain why they are spying on your text messages. In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that enables...

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
