  • (Optional) Perform a backup of the current ROM within recovery.
  • Wipe Data, Cache and Dalvik Cache within recovery.

I've had awesome experience using Crossbreeder on the 520, why not try adding it?

Hmm I've done some reading up on Crossbreeder since your post, as I have no experience of it, and it seems quite interesting so it may well included in a future version. Thanks for the suggestion.

For the moment this is just for the 10.1 WIFI SM-T520, as per the thread title, but I will put together a version for the 8.6 and the 12.2 if there is interest.

There are quite a number of features that I have lined up for this ROM so it won't stay this generic for long (hopefully). Watch this space![emoji1]

Thumbs up nice work adding more rom choices!

Great to see another choice for. T520.
Out of curiosity what is dif from GraveD rom? I've been running for awhile now as my daily driver and it works flawlessly. From your description sounds like its all covered in That rom...am I missing something?

Cheers!

No you are not missing anything and as they are both based on stock images there are always going to be fairly similar to be honest.

Im not a great fan of comparing peoples ROM's as I know how much time and effort goes into these, I used to work an 8hr day and then come home and work until midnight when working on AndroWook for the Transformer Prime, so they are all fantastic achievements to me .

Looking at GraveD's ROM he has removed more apps, has added more additional apps in and has also added Crossbreeder to his which makes for a fantastic ROM and the reason i have not removed so many apps is that anything i have removed is available for download from the Play store and at least that way it is not installed into the system/app or system/priv-app like Samsung have forced if you are on stock.

Crossbreeder seems good and GraveD seems to have implemeted it nicely so hats off and no doubt I will add it shortly to AndroWook but may do it via Aroma that way you can have the choice of using it.
