I see we have all Galaxy TAB3 mix together. As a Starting area I guess was OK.

But please understand that Galaxy TAB 3 10.1 are an entire Beast base in x86 architecture.. A lot of what is been commented for other models may not apply!!

I am trying to convince you that we 10.1 users need a separate area where we can be allowed to expose our needs. For this obvious reason Most of us find our-self posting inside:

Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Android Development

I know in many times in clear violations of the rule in:

[WARNING: READ ME 1st] If YOU DID NOT CREATE "it" THEN IT DOESN'T BELONG IN HERE

This 10.1 x86 Devices are new and to little is in fact available. So almost all threads in the development area may violate:

"If your thread can be phrased as a question, it DEFINITELY doesn't belong in Development "


Yes this are in fact questions of people looking for answers really hard to find since it is a new device!

I am a guy who believe in rules and try to obey them. That I know no one yet has received a complaint. But please understand us when we try to maintain our-self in one Clearly Galaxy Tab3 10.1 area. Plus most of us try to ask the few "NEW" developers that may be the only ones having not the right, but maybe close or best answer.

I do not want to change the format of this forum, nor have the right answer to this dilemma. But we need a waiver to the "phrased as a question..., doesn't belong in Development ". Or a Separate Q/A area dedicated for TAB 10.1

In the other hand at this point in our discovery there may be not "The Right Answer" available. So we may offer the best approach. So it will be also weird to have a Q/A where the answers are not the ANSWER but suggestions!

So I hope to see an official view. In any point, please feel free to delete this post if you find it inappropriate. Thanks for your hard work.

I hope you understand my point,
.

All those three tabs are different to each other. The 8 inch variant has another processor as the 7 inch. The 7 inch has a version with another processor too.

You are totaly right. I do not want to argue with you. But to convince you guys about our limited situation.

But even thought they have different processors they are in fact ARM devices.

The 10.1 is in fact an x86 processor! This make very difficult for Developers to come up with solutions, for example our TWRP and CWM are very unofficial, rudimentary, untrusted failing in many cases, requiring the User to understand its limitations and use them with special steps to overcome the limitations. All Rom alternatives are just Repack Stock Roms with deleted and added components. CM10 or even AOSP is just a dream at this point. Lets hope it change soon.

Hello.

For your questions post in the "Galaxy Tab 3 Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting" section, it is there for all the Galaxy Tab 3 models. You can specify in the title or in the OP what model your thread is about.

I second this as having the x86 arch. is going to hopefully enable us to run other os's on our 10.1's and having separate sub-forums similar to how the HD2 has it will make for more organized development.

agree. prob not a good idea to lump all the tab 3 together.

The Tab 3 7.0 inch is a real slug - I returned it and got a note 8. But i'll bet the Tab 3 8.0 is probably much smoother as is the 10.1 I would imagine.
