Went to Warbirds Air Museum in Kissimmee, FL today. Overall, it was pretty cool.

I can only imagine Samsung (and their customers) are now all like...

Looks like I need your help.
The project is ready for porting since a month but as news sites seem to ignore suggestions and I'm really bad at advertising things myself almost nobody knows about this project.

So spread the word about EFIDroid, reach out to your device's developers and tell them why you want this project to be ported.

I can't do much about it - if nobody uses the project it will die silently.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone managed to get a custom-built kernel running on their Project Tango Tablet? I've been working hard at it for well over a two months, but have had no luck.
The distributed kernel source didn't come with a proper defconfig (which it is supposed to). However, I was able to get one by extracting it from my current boot image.
Now, the problem I'm running into is that regardless of what version of the toolchain I use (GCC 4.7, GCC 4.8, etc.), it refuses to initialize the display panel.
If I throw together a quick, hacked-up version of recovery, with adb insecure enabled on it, I can connect to the device and run commands, but the screen panel remains off.
Note: Everything I tried (but ended up failing) is listed below
- adding an appended dtb to the zImage
- flashing different dtbs
- toying around with the defconfig's graphics configs
- porting the device to an entirely new kernel base

It is also worth noting that using a stock kernel in my "hacked-up" recovery works fine, has a working display and everything.

One of the main bugs for me (the only one that forces me to switch to Google Keyboard every now and again) is that Chrooma Keyboard seems to not check for the presence of words/shortcuts in the user's Personal Dictionary. (See first two attached screenshots. Red is Chrooma, white is Google Keyboard)
I would have classified this as a feature request instead of a bug report, but in Chrooma's Settings page, there lies an option for the Personal Dictionary (See third attached screenshot).
Aside from this issue, Chrooma is a great keyboard with awesome developers that actually listen to their users!

So, I know I said "in a few days", but it's looking like Cyan is (quite obviously) the winner for the first poll. So, with that, I now give you the chance to pick the color when the device is in recovery mode!
Pick from one of the options below, or, if you don't like the options, list what color you like the best in the comments section below.
Please note, that if your color of choice didn't win the first poll, you will have the option to change it from somewhere in Settings.
Just a small side note: I expect this one to be a bit more divided. Don't disappoint me! :P

Hey, guys and gals!
"The team" and I just recently got full LED RGB customization on the ADT-1! It wasn't easy, though. I had to write a kernel driver that "piggybacked" on some of Google's code, but nevertheless, it works! However, the team and I are at a bit of a dilemma. We don't know what color we should make the default for people when using a custom ROM, so we're gonna let you guys decide! If you, for some reason, don't like the poll choices, feel free to comment a color below, and we'll consider it!
In a few days, we'll hold another poll, to determine the color of the LED when the device is in recovery mode.
Sorry for keeping quiet for a while, but we can assure you that development is chugging along smoothly. We'll let you guys know if any other major breakthroughs happen.
Happy modding!
