A little more than a month ago I tried to install CM10 preview build for the original Galaxy Tab (P1000). Unfortunately, wireless tethering doesn’t work on it. Since wireless tethering is very important to me – I use my Galaxy Tab as a mobile hotspot for my phone – I had to go back to CM9… until now.
So, yesterday I went back to the CM10 preview thread to check its status and I was greeted by a new build (Build 4). As usual I used XDA’s search in thread function for wireless tethering and found one post that says it still doesn’t work. I kept my hopes up though and found that the HumberOS build along with a matching kernel has the feature that I need. I have experience with HumberOS ROMs and have used it until I switched to pure CM9 so I didn’t think twice about installing that version.
Hello again Jelly Bean!
This version looks and feels a lot smoother. It still lags (and I expected that) but it’s a lot more usable than the first builds that I tried. Nevertheless it seems stable enough as long as I don’t overclock. I tried overclocking a few times and my Galaxy Tab rebooted without warning. Of course, it’s not completely bug free like how the Gallery force closes when I try opening a high resolution (around 4000 x 5000) image which used to work well on CM9 among a few other things I’ve seen. Well, It’s a preview after all and so I can’t (and shouldn’t) complain.
I wouldn’t recommend the ROM to be used as a daily driver but, if you wish to do some tinkering, head to the link to the HumberOS article I posted above. I expect you to know what you are doing of course. I can’t be held responsible for whatever happens to your precious device.
