Is it worth it to take this back and get the 8 inch? Are the processors that much different in performance? I will be playing games on this not just watching streaming video and internet browsing.
I am NOT sure Tab 4 7.0 is for Gaming because Marvell PXA1088 and Vivante GC 1000 combination seems NOT to be okay.
However Tab 4 8.0 should handle all latest games with NO noticeable lag because of the Qualcom MSM8226 and Adreno 305 (with OpenGL 3.0 ). So I would suggest you to buy this if want a gaming Tab 4.
The same situation happened with Tab 3 series where Tab 3 8" was the gaming one because of its Exynos Dual 4212 CPU and the Quad Core Mali-400MP GPU. Even Tab 3 10.1 Gaming was a bit worst than Tab 3 8" (and I had the Tab 3 10.1 P5210)

Good luck Ketut, hope you can manage to port this KK build to Tab 3 7.0 / Tab 3 7.0 Lite
I experienced working for PXA988 device Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 in kernel level, though I don't own this device. Based on Marvell, PXA1088 platform compatible to PXA988, both powered by Vivante GC1000 GPU. Some information for you:
Tab 3 7.0 ramdisk size limited to 1MB from the bootloader, too small for custom recovery
No USB host support, hardware limitation
No AOSP reference out there, it's hard to build a custom ROM
I have used information you provided here and your degas-mkbootimg tool to build a custom recovery. I am posting it soon. Thanks!
