What do you do when you’ve got an old tablet that shipped with Froyo and want to run the latest version of Android? If you’re a developer here at XDA, you simply port Jelly Bean to it. Even better, you share the fruits of your labor with the rest of the community as well. That’s exactly what our developers here at XDA did with their Toshiba Folio 100 tablets.
Brought to us by XDA Member Aheros, this ROM is based on the CM10 Alpha port by XDA Senior Member DerArtem and XDA Member nopy. While highly functional, the ROM isn’t entirely bug free yet, as some users have reported issues with Bluetooth, HDMI audio output, USB 3G dongles, and lag when using with a mouse. It is still in active development, so all of these are in the to-fix list.
Can’t wait to install it on your Folio? Head over to the forum thread where you can download the ROM and keep up with the progress.

Well, it looks like we are finishing this year with a boom… of fora. The much awaited Bada OS forum is now up and running. After several months of people asking and requesting it, we decided that there was enough interest in Samsung’s OS development. Work on this OS has been ongoing for quite sometime in several other forums and we are glad that we are finally going to see what the hype was all about.
Also, we keep on riding the tablet wave and decided to add forums for two other tablets that seem to be rather popular nowadays. The Toshiba Folio 100 and the Elocity A7 are two mid-range tablets that carry a pretty packed punch for what they cost. The Folio in particular has had active development in the Android Development and Hacking section for a few months, and there are even custom roms and kernels for it already. So, if you were active in that one thread, you now have a full sub-forum to play around with.
So, what are you waiting for? Jump into the next bandwagon of forums before this year is over and share your experiences if you have dealt with any of these.

If there is anything better than custom roms on anything, is a patch to fix annoying bugs and to improve performance. This is exactly what this patch for the Toshiba Folio 100 does, courtesy of XDA member Dexter_nlb. While we know that this device is not featured in our site yet, we figured that posting this fix would be beneficial for the many Folio owners out there.
This fix encompasses a new stock build with working google apps, and stability issues fixed such as Wifi loading, SD card mounting errors, resolution issues on a few apps, and more. So, if you are an owner, give this a go and make sure that you follow the instructions in the guide or else you may end up bricking the device.
v0.1 (patch updates)
- Wifi load/unload – fixed
