Default Safe Strap i467 semi-working

So, I was looking for safestrap for the note 8(att version) when I came across this:

Note 2 SafeStrap

Considering the note 2 and Note 8 have very similar hardware, I decided to give it a try. It works....kinda. It boots up in landscape mode so you can't see all of the buttons. And the touchscreen is offset. the touchscreen works as if you're looking at it in portrait mode but the display is actually in landscape mode.

I figure this is more progress than anyone else has made. I just know nothing about development and have no idea of where to even start. So if someone wants to take a look at it....be my guest.

By the way, to boot into safestrap, when you see the safestrap logo you have to press the menu button

i wouldn't THINK it'd be that difficult to rotate an app from landscape to portrait but maybe it is?

The boot loader is locked that's the reason you can load cwm on it

Sounds like the issue is with the build.prop file. You must edit the file so that ro.sf.hwrotation is set at 270 and ro.sf.lcd_density is set between 180 and 210. Once done everything should look and work fine.

Let me know how it works out for you, and what ROM you are going to load. Just wondering as I may opt to run it on my ATT Note 8.0 some time. Just I have done enough to be happy with it at this time, and don't want to be a guinea pig.

Yep. However I traded my i467 for the WiFi version so I don't have it anymore
