"FINALLY WE GET IT!"

Old post here
Since there are too many request to all developers about releasing or not a 6.0 custom ROM, I will start this thread on which we can talk about porting 6.0 and problem that there could be.
I'll post here all news if there will be, AND PLEASE DON'T ASK INCESSANTLY FOR ETAs


@CCD booted a build of Candy6 and that there is some work to do yet, but for now he didn't have much time.



@Android-Andi and @Ziyan booted already a build of 6.0, but there are many work at kernel level due to the use of Samsung kernel sources full of bloatware. Probably will need more work to get a good stability (remember that Tab2 is an old medium device), but many users asked him incessantly ETAs, something annoying and unnerving


So probably we have to wait a bit, if you have something to say, please don't mess other developent thread and don't pm continuously, but ask here (nothing prevents you from trying to build a test version however)


Finally the first builds of Marshmallow are out:
  • CM13:

    Thanks to @Android-Andi and @Ziyan

    Bugs:
    - Keyboard FC fixed in 30-01 build
    - Call doesn't work fixed
    - Issues with SDcard mounting fixed in 30-01 build

    The ROM is almost stable and ready for daily driver, it can be some lags due to very old hardware (Tab is from 2012 eheheh) but overall is a lot better than stock and very usable, thanks also to 908 MB of ram

    - Galaxy Tab 2 7"
    - Galaxy Tab 2 10"

    Obviusly you have to wipe system, cache and data before install, reboot to recovery once and install rom and GApps
  • crDroid 6.0:

    Thanks to @jejecule

    Bugs:
    - Keyboard FC (flash fix below)
    - Call doesn't work (only 3g variant)

    Links:

    - Tab 2 7"

    Same here, before flash you have to wipe system, cache, then reboot recovery once and flash ROM, Gapps and the keyboard
  • CandySix:

    Thanks to @CCD

    Bugs:
    - Overclock to 1350 Mhz cause freeze and random reboot

    Threads:

    Tab 2 7"

Here for the best GApps or HERE

Don't forget to thank

Nah, it was booting one week after google published M source, lol. Thx to @Ziyan who got it first booting.

Why there's no build yet? Because some spammer are really going on our nervs - people don't stop silly pms asking for M, M, M, M, M....

Anything besides? Yes, we are working on a new kernel. We spend many hours each day on it but there's nothing that needs public testing yet.

Be patient and M will be out for tab 2 soon or later, if stupid PMs don't stop there's no future (at least i am not willing to do anything public in future).
