CyanogenMod 9 alpha for Galaxy Tab 7 Plus (GT-P6200)

A few weeks ago I started porting CyanogenMod 9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus. It was a slow start, but after fixing up the touchscreen driver for ICS things started moving much quicker. It has finally reached a state where I feel that it would benefit from public testing (as well as help from other people).

As you can see, it is based on Android 4.0.4:

What works

The device is properly recognized as a tablet, so tablet-mode stuff (like the bottom bar) work properly. It’s incredibly fast; most transitions are buttery smooth, applications launch fast, etc. Hardware buttons (power and volume) work properly, and trigger appropriate Android OS functionality.

What doesn’t work

Lots of stuff is still broken. The list is very long!

  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • Hardware-accelerated video decoding
  • Telephony (voice, sms, data)
  • Wifi
  • Camera
  • GPS
  • Ambient light sensor

Here are a few more screenshots to tide you over…

Anyone interested in more details (developers or curious users), should head over to the XDA thread. Sources are available at my github account.

  1. so i have the samsung gt p6200 (galaxy tab 7 plus) and im trying to set up internet calls (sip). i was told i need cyanogenMod to do so. if i use CM 9 will i be able to do internet call?

    1. I dunno, I haven’t played with it on the stock Honeycomb ROM. And it won’t work on CyanogenMod 9 yet, because both 3G and Wifi are still broken. :)

      btw, look into CSipSimple for SIP. It’s free, open-source software, and it rocks. I used to use it on Froyo/Gingerbread to make SIP calls (it integrates into the Android dialer). Dunno if it works on Honeycomb, but maybe!

  2. Hi, I’m a complete noob in this thing. Just got my 7 plus recently and I’d like to install this ROM. I rooted my device but I don’t know how to do. Where can I get the latest version of this ROM and can 3g works?

      1. Hi,

        Flashed the ROM and its silky smooth. Loved it very very much.
        But there is several suggestion and errors I have found after testing:
        1) Camera not working
        2) Wifi not working
        3) Lack of Google Playstore
        4) Lack of File Manager

        This is what I have found so far, I’ll tell you if I discover more. Please fix the camera and wifi ASAP, the mod will be perfect with them. About the playstore and file manager, no big deal I’ll just download it from the net. :D
