This is now the CM10.1 (and 4.2 in general) General thread, its not a development thread really, more a gathering place for CM10.1 progress and 4.2 general chat, same as before.
10.1 is still a heavy work in progress, both from me and from the CM team, as such the state of this project is in heavy flux.
I don't plan to release a build yet, though even for a first build it's actually in really good shape. There's still two hurdles before I consider putting out a build:
Wifi (ethernet works though not everyone has an adapter) (Fixed ty t1nk and xyler)
External SD must work.
If I can get those two things going I'll think about putting up a build.
For those who are impatient and just GOT to have the latest broken toy, PM me and I'll set you up, but you MUST be on TWRP 126.96.36.199! If you aren't you'll need dale to roll you back to get off 4.2 at all.
Project progression will be in post 2.
Well I just noticed 4.2 is available, pulling it in now. I did notice something that I'm not real sure is good news for us though:
"-There is no support for 4.2 on Nexus S and Xoom. Those devices should
continue using 4.1.2. "
This is a quote from Jean-Baptiste M. Queru, technical lead for AOSP (Google for those who don't know)
While this doesn't mean much in and of itself, they're obviously limiting older device support this round, as some may know the Xoom was the unofficial adopted AOSP 10" tablet, and of course being a tegra2 based (though a different variant board and cpu to ours) meant we had something to work with alongside the TF101 devs. This lack of support outright may hamper this quite a bit. This quote was taken from here:
Now I don't want to read to far into this (or anyone else). This does not mean they will never support the devices, they may in the future. It also doesn't mean people won't work around it and get 4.2 working on older devices like ours, the TF101 and the Xoom. It just means it may take longer this time. Randomblame of XDA and the Iconia A500 (who I tend to bounce ideas off of and is the second biggest inspiration to my work) has already got it booting on his A500, which means its entirely possible, of course. For those who are not familiar with this tablet, its a tegra2 based 10" tablet also, and the a100 is partially responsible for a lot of the progress made on the Thrive. Randomblame hammering out 4.2 is good news for us, for certain, and will likley hold the key for 4.2 progression on the Thrive as I'll likely work with him for a bit of this.
So, what does this all mean for us Thrive owners?
As before, its hard to say. I'll try (and if tybar and jbettcher come back the chances increase 500%) to get 4.2 working, but in all likely hood, it will never function as well as CM10 will. There has been even MORE changes to the way storage is handled, and if they messed with the cameras or audio again, it'll put us back to square one where we were with CM10 a month or two ago.
So, I'm pulling in the sources, as its AOSP based it'll require alot of work to get the trees into shape for a pure AOSP build. I'll start working on it, but I make no promises, and can offer no eta on when a bootable build will even occur, let alone be released.
Ok, I said what I wanted to say, this thread can now turn into a speculation/wish list/ideas/dev thread. Consider this a general 4.2 thread to discuss anything you wish. I'd prefer it doesn't turn into a jellybean flame war, though I know opinions will be expressed in either direction, lets try to keep it civil, and our skins a little thicker this round. I'll also make a second post to hold FAQS and/or updates as they occur (or come up in the thread). I'm sure if we all work together again we can have this beast running 4.2.
