    Well, bud ... finished the CleanROM install this evening. I stuck with all the stock options.

    Chrome is much smoother. My Handrite Free app crashed. Gmail closed (but did not crash) once. So, there is some work to do.

    To perform a factory reset, would you prefer to boot into TWRP > Wipe > Factory Reset? Or, would you go with the option in Android settings? I will ask on XDA if we're not sure.

    Before long, I'm sure I'll be very, very pleased with the change.

    Keep us posted about absence of lag. I'm interested in knowing how different it is :-)

    Well congrats TBird!
    Did you make a backup of your stock system in TWRP before you flashed CROMI?
    I mean, if you want to go back that's the way to go. Or download the 4.1 from Asus and flash that.
    What options did you choose in Aroma? Kernel, dpi?
    If this flash is not working out for you, maybe try another with slightly different settings/components?

    I am not sure what you actually wipe if you do "wipe data". Just the system partition? The whole internal storage?
    If at all, I would use TWRP to wipe. I have read bad things about people trying the system restore from Settings>Backup & restore after installing a custom rom.
    Probably better to ask the fine folks at xda.

    Let me know what you learn! Actually, I probably see it anyway since I subscribed to all the CROMI threads.

    Will do! I need til Sunday afternoon to really test a bunch of things. However, my first impression is that the ROM certainly is smooth. When I was stock, I could hardly use Chrome - it stuttered and paused often (especially on graphic intensive sites, like theverge.com). Now, I breezed through The Verge using Chrome.

    Handrite Free was laggy, though. In fact, it crashed. I reported the crash to the dev. ASUS's Supernote is now very smooth so far, though.

    Yes, I have a backup, but I don't want to go back.

    I chose:
    • TF700 ASUS stock kernel
    • US Build 240 DPI (stock)
    • Stock launcher (ASUS)
    • Pretty much every app, understanding that I could disable anything I end up not wanting


    I will ask on XDA about the best factory reset option.

    Interesting, now that I see you chose Asus launcher, I'm more interested in knowing if the device's I/O behave same as before root or better now that it's rooted. In other words, I hate how the tab is just unfunctional when emails come in or when apps are updating... Does that still exist while being rooted still with Asus launcher?

    I like how asus's launcher is setup, and know there are others to choose from too which is great, just curious if it's their launcher being the cause of lag.
    Now that my HTC thunderbolt is on an aosp ics rom, so much smoother and no noticeable lag like htc's and Verizon's stock ics rom with htc's Sense.

    When I flashed the first custom ROM (Cromi 3.2.1) I stuck with the stock launcher and still had major performance improvement - literally everywhere, no lag anywhere.
    A couple of days ago I flashed Cromi 3.3 and went with the ADW launcher. I cannot tell a difference in performance. The tab still runs perfectly.

    I was on this thing today for at least 5 hours straight (sports injury, confined to the couch), customizing the hell out of my home screens: Downloaded and installed a theme for the ADW launcher, changed icons, got MultiPicture Wallpaper and set a different background with custom settings for each of my 5 home screens, got another app to create custom icons and fooled around with FolderOrganizer on top of it.
    In between I surfed the web, went back and forth to Gmail, Tapatalk, Twitter - you name it.
    There was not a single hickup, no lag, no stutter, no nothing.
    And I was WAITING for it, expecting it really, because this is probably the heaviest use I have ever subjected my TF700 to.
    I love this thing!

    The keyboard works great. I plugged in a USB stick and opened a document from that USB storage using Kingsoft Office -- left the document open & USB stick plugged in. Went into Supernote, which used to be laggy as hell when stock, and blasted myself with 4 emails in rapid-fire fashion. I was typing gibberish into Supernote while all the emails came in. No lag while typing in Supernote.

    Last night, I think I just needed to activate some things that were pending. A couple of apps had yet to ask for Super User access; AdAway hadn't been fully activated, etc. I think some of last night's lag was caused by some of that stuff.

    Also last night, I rebooted 3 times. The first 2 times, I was greeted with a message similar to: "Asus weather has stopped." After activating/updating AdAway & granting Super User access to (whatever it was), I did not receive the weather error. All seems very, very well this A.M.


    Still no response from anyone on XDA about which factory reset procedure to use. Will ask elsewhere.

    Good! I'm glad for you!
    After I flashed CRMI 3.3 I left the tab alone for about 30 minutes to let it stabilize. sbdag recommends 10 minutes to let all the background processes settle in. I figure, a little extra time won't hurt. At least not the tablet - it was torture to have to wait that long!

    Well it seems to me that the TWRP 'factory reset' option will accomplish what you are after. Check here: [RECOVERY]TWRP 2.2.2.0 now with USB OTG [2012-08-24] - [VZW] Galaxy Nexus Development - RootzWiki - Page 89
    I find it confusing that they call it "Factory Reset" though. Implies to me, that it reverts the tab to the state it was in when it left the factory - ROM and all. But it seems, they mean that you wipe anything you installed after you got it.
    The core apps (Asus, Google etc.) seem to be in \system\app, whereas everything you install yourself is in \data\app and that is what TWRP wipes.

    Interesting!
    The fog is lifting! Slowly but surely......

    Thank you, sir! Actually, duh on my part ... anytime I did a factory reset on my DInc (after it was rooted & ROM'ed), it always reset back to a fresh install of whatever ROM was installed. This is my first time using TWRP; so, I guess I just wanted to be extra sure.

    As of this AM, though, I see no need to reset.

    If green_lantern or anyone else wants written instructions, I actually typed up the process - within a Google Document - that was demoed in the YouTube video (he made the process longer than it needed to be). I used my check list to proceed through my install ... easy fortunately.

    When you are finished, how about screenshots of the new customized look, Bern?

    Finished?? I doubt that I'll ever be finished! LOL
    That's the beauty of Android: Soooo many ways to customize....

    But here's the current state of a work in progress:

    I am trying to apply the idea of "hubs" for the home screens, each one holding shortcuts and/or widgets of a certain category: work, media etc
    I found such gorgeous pictures in "Wallbase", my wallpaper app (great app, let's you specify to only show you wallpaper of a certain resolution, 1920x1200 for the TF700), that I don't want to plaster them over with tons of icons and widgets. Hence 5 screens with relatively few icons. Took that even a step further with "FolderOrganizer" which I use because I don't really like the look of the icon folders in stock launcher or ADW. I'll include a screen shot of one screen with a folder open.
    "MultiPicture Wallpaper" lets you set a different picture for each screen, and - amazingly enough - is the first wallpaper app other than Asus MyFrame that scales the pictures to my liking (almost)
    What else? Oh yeah, the launcher is ADW with the "Sense" theme applied.
    The widgets on screen 3, my home screen, are Beautiful Widgets. Except for the two icons in lower left (work,widget), those are ADW custom icons changed with an app called SimpleText, and they provide a shortcut to screens 1 and 5. Why? Because you CAN! Just foolin' around....
    Pretty soon I won't have this kind of time anymore, so I make the most of it now....

    O man ... I love those glass icons. The rest of it looks hot, too. Nice wallpapers!

    Fortunately, I already have several of those apps. What app did you use to make the icons again?
