TF300T Gets First Custom ICS ROM Courtesy of CM9
It was bound to happen sooner or later. With the Asus release of the unlocker tool for the TF300T, everyone could probably guess that development on the modest, yet still awesome tablet would start picking up, as developers now have no obstacles blocking their path. And now thanks to the official release of experimental CyanogenMod 9 builds, Asus Transformer TF300T owners now have access to the popular AOSP-derived, multi-device aftermarket firmware.
XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung has released an experimental build of the popular ROM for users to try out. And frankly, for a ROM labeled as experimental, it’s surprisingly functional and doesn’t have a lot broken.
Currently, at least as of experimental build number 2, the worst users can expect is that MTP is broken. This means you cannot place files from the device onto the computer, although the developer will note that users can apparently still transfer files from their PC to the device. This is, of course, a big improvement over the first build, which had camera and WiFi issues. However, these issues were fixed in build 2, so they are a thing of the past. With no indication that anything else is broken, users who can live without MTP might as well call it a daily driver, as it appears to be pretty stable for such an early release.
