Welcome to NoleKat for T211!


This rom is based on the T211 Italian KitKat firmware with stock kernel. It is Touchwiz based and somewhat debloated.

I do not have a T211 to test on, so make sure you have a backup before flashing. This is my first endeavour into a GSM rom, so you may have to fix your own connectivity issues since I don't have this device.

FEATURES
Based on T211 Italy firmware (NI1)
Deodexed
init.d
sqlite
Rooted
Busybox
App Ops enabled
4-Way Reboot
Most all apps that are available in the Play Store have been removed
Added secondary symbols to keyboard (see screenshot)
External sdcard fix for KitKat
Newer (T310) launcher and Weather Widget
Custom Boot Animation support
Removed annoying Safe Volume and Airplane Mode popups



INSTALLATION
  1. Ensure you have updated to the KitKat firmware.
  2. Download full rom zip and the v1.1 update zip from the link below.
  3. Boot into your custom recovery (recommend Philz Touch)
  4. Perform a factory reset / full wipe (rom install does not wipe data)
  5. Flash full rom zip; then the update.
  6. Reboot and enjoy
  7. Report back any bugs you find

I recommend a full wipe, but you can always try a dirty flash.

NOTE ABOUT INTERNAL SDCARDS

Our 4.1.2 version roms use the /data/media directory as the "internal sdcard".
4.2+ versions of Android use the /data/media/0 directory due to support for multiple users.
If you switch to a different Android version, you need to be aware of this difference.
I recommend wiping "internal sdcard" also before switching from 4.1.2 to 4.4.2.

Am on Malaysia based so far no issues so far, initially I had added entropy..it lagged playing Angry Birds Transformers But once I had removed it is running fine.

Some of kind of tweak you got there, care to share it's content

Connectivity...no problems so far...Well done

I haven't added any performance tweaks. I've seen so many varying opinions on the entropy tweaks that I never bother with it.

Keep up the good work. On the very 1st day I got this Tab...was a bit frustrated but later when Kernels and good ROMs was released gave the Tab3 a new life.

FYI I am on WereWolf Kernel and so it's OC.....:banghead:

BTW good LMK embedded in the ROM

AM STICKING TO THIS ROM....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED YOU CAN NOW PLAY HUNGRY SHARK..ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS NO LAGS

@gr8nole, thanks for this ROM.
I've installed it on my T211 (italian).
So far it works well with werewolf kernel v6.
If possible, could you prepare two separate zip (one with original kernel, and the other with MODEM: T211XXBNI1 ) ?

This rom has the original kernel. I only modified the ramdisk to allow insecure adb (helps during troubleshooting).

As for the modem, there are so many different regions that may have a slightly different modem that I can't provide one that will 100% work for everyone. This rom does not touch the modem that you currently have installed. I can provide the one from the Italian firmware, but you probably will want to keep using the one for your region.
