I'm pretty sure the illuminate doesn't have flash support yet unless I missed something, if the FFC worked I'd be on-board big time.

Yeah some of the CM7 roms have hardware acceleration, I need to check which one(s).


Parasite, I can throw something up at some point. It's a little more complicated because you need to learn NVFlash and switching bootloader versions, etc...

Re: Best ROM

I've been using "Brilliant Corners" for the past couple of days and really like it. My Gtab came with the 1.2 branch so my 1st choice of "Vegantab" wouldn't work. I initially tried "Illuminate" but it kept hanging at the Illuminate screen. Might have been because I didn't have an sd card plugged in. Might try it again... but no complaints with "Brilliant Corners"

Re: Best ROM

Mine showed up tonight, and I've already got CWM installed, repartitioned and reset permissions. Tomorrow I install a ROM. I'm on bootloader 1.1 and I'm leaning toward CM7 and Pershoot since Netflix is important. I think I have a handle on the process, but if you've got any tips or things to look out for, let me know. I've not used NVFLASH up to this point, and unless I must use it, I'm planning on avoiding it. It looks to be Windows only, and I'd rather stab my eyes out with toothpicks than boot into Windows, so...

Re: Best ROM

I've got CM7 installed, it was easy enough to do. I'm trying to get Pershoot installed and I'm running into an issue. When I plug in the USB cable from the Gtab to my computer, it doesn't mount the internal card. The stock rom would pop up a box asking if I wanted to mount the card, but CM7 doesn't seem to. How do I get access to copy files onto the device's internal memory in CM7?

Re: Best ROM

Nevermind, I had to copy the file vold.fstab.zip to a USB drive, mount that on my GTab, then copy the file over to the internal memory. I then installed it through CWM and I'm good to go. I'll attach that file if anyone else ends up needing it.
