Official CM10.1 Builds for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

cm101

Most of the CM10.1 releases we talk about are unofficial. That’s to be expected, as most of these releases are alphas, pre-alphas, or preview builds that don’t really run well, but show that work is being done. When it’s official, it’s usually more stable. Now, there are official CM10.1 builds out for the Nexus 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

The Nexus 7 release was posted by XDA Forum Member eak1080. As is to be expected for vanilla Android devices, it’s pretty much ready to go. There are a few quirks that are easy to get around. For instance, the GooManager app doesn’t link to the proper GApps. So if you plan on flashing, use the ones linked. There are also separate zips f. . . READ ON »

How To Dual Boot Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Dual Boot

Got yourself a Galaxy Tab 2 7″ P31xx and not satisfied with running just one build of Android on it? Want to dabble into custom ROMs like CyanogenMod 10, but don’t want to lose the stock ROM at the same time? XDA Member Macadamia Daze has found a way to dual-boot two Android builds on this tablet.

This dual boot method runs one Android build from the internal memory and the other from the SD card.  Before you begin, you must have an 8GB or higher capacity SD card, though 16GB or more is recommended. Also note that the ROM you are running from the SD card has to be prepared to run that way. Fortunately, the developer has provided the latest CM10 nightly already prepped for the purpose, along with instructi. . . READ ON »

Easy Root and Recovery Tutorial for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Galaxy Tab 2 7

With the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 obtaining root, it was only a matter of time before it’s smaller sibling, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, was rooted as well. Unlike the original Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 10.1, which were released almost a year apart from one another, this generation offers the two sizes (as well as a few others) concurrently. Given the similar hardware and software, making the leap from one to the next is much easier.

The device was originally rooted by XDA Senior Member nycbjr. Soon thereafter, XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx released ClockworkMod recovery for the entire Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P31xx series. Now, XDA Senior Member tapan15in has now created an easy-to-follow root and recovery tut. . . READ ON »

Forums Added for the Galaxy Tab 2, Asus TF300T, Droid Incredible 4G LTE, and EVO 4G LTE

Another day, another forum here on XDA-Developers. And today, we bring you several. Starting with the tablet world, we added forums for the Asus Transformer TF300T and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (both the 7.0 and 10.1 variants). The Asus offering brings similar features to that of its sibling, the Transformer Prime, but with a more wallet-friendly price. Swapping out the acclaimed Super-IPS display for a more standard (but still vibrant) IPS panel, but retaining its Nvidia Tegra 3 powerhouse, the TF300T is no slouch. On the other end of the alphabet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 offer fantastic displays and competent dual-core processors for $250 and $400, respectively.
