Question [Q] Strange problem installing certain roms

Hi all

This is my first post here, although i've been using your resources for some time now - and they've been very helpfull


I can't however, seem to find an answer to this issue i've ran into.

First of all, let me say i'm fairly new to rooting/custom roms - i understand the basic concept and i've been using my Galaxy Tab 2 7" as a test device to experiment with.


So Heres my hardware details from what i understand:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.0 7"
GT-P3110

I'm using: CWM v6.0.4.5


I've managed to install the following rom with no issues whatsoever:

aokp_P3110_jb-mr2_unofficial_2013-11-04.zip

now i'm trying to find a more up-to-date version (i would prefer something based on 4.4 or later as i miss the ability to install apps onto the SDcard rather than the internal memory (its my understanding they removed this feature, then re-added it in 4.4?)

so next i tried:

aokp_p3110_kitkat_unofficial_2013-12-24.zip

which during installation gives me the following error:

Quote:
This package is for "p3110,GT-P3110,p3113,GT-P3113,expressowifi,espressowifixx" devices; this is a "espressorf"
Which to me doesn't make sense as i'm fairly sure my device is P3113 EspressoWifi.



Am I missing something here?

A little nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I think you need to check for shure what you have. You started by saying you have a P3110 and ended with P3113.

Look for the serial number on the back of the tab and compare with the serial number in About device in settings. If they are the same on the back of the tab where the serial number is is also the model number in small letters and numbers.

The other is to boot into download mode in the second screen it tells you the model. but if you have flashed the wrong firmware it might have changed it. hope this gives you a start.

Thanks for the reply

3113 was a typo, its definetly 3110 (stamped on the back of the device)

To confirm i booted to download mode:

Code:
ODIN MODE
PRODUCT NAME: GT-P3110
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD:L YES (1 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: CUSTOM
sorry about that, my mistake


So all the rom's ive attempted to install have been for the P3110

It just seems strange that some of them are telling me my device isn't a P3110 yet other roms for P3110 work perfectly?

I got same problems too, about 2 days ago, but in p3100 device

All you have to do is switch back your recovery to the earlier version, now im using GT-P3100_CWM_6.0.4.6_Swipe-Edition.zip. Maybe you can try the p3110 6.0.4.6 ver.

The one that cause error like you said when installing rom in my device is "GT-P3100_CWM_6.0.4.7_Swipe-Edition.zip". I'm sure i download the right files because i never renamed the files and it says so.

Maybe @Android-Andi should see this..

=====

looking at the errors you gave, maybe android-andi has swapped the name accidentally. i got an error "this is a expressowifi"

No problem Would be great if you can give some feedback

You should also download latest AOKP (aokp_p3110_kitkat_unofficial_2013-12-24.zip is a little bit old )

^ sure thing

First thing i noticed obviously is the swipe feature, while i can see it being nice to have, i wont be using it since i've become used to navigating using my volume up/down- still a nice idea though.

Do you have a changelog i can take a look at?

Could you provide a link? I do tend to struggle to find all the latest roms as they seem to be scattered all over the web (or is this just me? lol) I usuaully just do a googlesearch for [device model] [Android version] [rom title] which more often than not takes me to a blog post where i download the file directly (probably why i ended up with an unofficial build)

The AOKP Site says there is no release for my device (p3110) hence my google search for unnoficial builds. - Is there a better way to find what i'm looking for ?

Thanks again



thanks again
