The Google Nexus 10 tablet has received its own variant of an Android 4.2 custom ROM with the Task650 and Ktoonsez name. It is based on the AOKP ROM and it can be used with the P8110 model number of Nexus 10. Read the entire article and you can ask for more help in comments in case you’re having problems completing the installation of this new ROM.
The name of this ROM comes from its developers, Task650 and Ktoonsez. It is based on AOKP Android 4.2 ROM and it comes with an updated kernel Linux 3.4.23 variant and it packs VeNum tweaks, IME toggler, Link volume states, LED options and multiple other new functions. This is not a final release and you should only use it if you’re a tinkerer and you want to test custom ROMs.
Before getting to the tutorial, read the guidelines below and you’ll learn how to successfully prepare your device for the updating process:
- Use this guide only with the Google Nexus 10 tablet. Don’t use this custom ROM with any other Android device.
- Your tablet should be on an unlocked bootloader, rooted and running a custom recovery.
- Create a full NANDROID backup of your current ROM so that it will act as cover in case you cannot use the device after the installation of the new custom ROM.
- Enable USB Debugging option from the Developer Options.
- Charge the tablet’s battery until it reaches at least 50 % power so that it won’t power off during the ROM installation.
- Note that we cannot be blamed in case you lose any important files. That’s why you should move all important data to PC.
- If you have problems installing this new ROM, then you can ask for more help in comments.
Now that you know all of the above, I think that you can move to the tutorial guide below.
