Default IR Blaster problem slimkat 4.4.4 build 6-112

Finally able to get a username that works; why no info on howto??

Anyway installed stable slimkat 4.4.4 build6-112 along with its normal gapps which worked somewhat even tho the install with philz got the tab 2 7 derooted. I'm using the Tab 2 mainly as a universal remote control for my audio/video equipment.

1) installed touchsquid but when after configuring & then trying to do "watch tv", slimkat rebooted!

2) tried Peel & it "kinda" worked for the current channel; but when doing the change channel, Tab 2 rebooted.

3) tried the "cool tiger remote" & it get too far in configuring when it also rebooted when it was trying to send the IR code to do something (even on trying to turn on the TV or get a menu.

So think that slimkat 4.4.4 has a problem with using IR to do any controlling of equipment.

Will check change log for latest nightly instead of latest "stable". Will also post problem at TouchSquid which had been working with stock android.

It was a clean flash especially I got "unrooted" going int slimkat. Did a clean flash with pac-man nightly (the latest pac-man of 20140710 is very BAD) & it also didn't work with the IR. Can't go back to stock as did not do a backup (have 4.4.4 on the nook hd+ & A700 without problems).

At least I have the philz recovery as I am able to use the microsd to install different roms.

The support at TouchSquid say that Samsung changed the IR implementation in their 4.4.3 & 4.4.4 which works with their software; Tab 2 7 is just "too old" for Samsung support to provide a stock 4.4.4.

A learning experience is that if a stuck bootup or loop, just pop out the sd card, put a new/another rom zip & reflash!

About your root problem read Slim FAQ:
http://www.slimroms.net/index.php/fa...-i-enable-root

I'll see if one of the p3113 or p5113 user can tell me wich IR APP they use.

Default Now using CM-11 4.4.4

Loaded CM-11 4.4.4.

Still having problems with IR & reboot, but looks like it was due to the Sony blu-ray player; some other problems with it tho, not related to 4.4.4 IR.

Really like CM-11 for the wallpaper selection of "no wallpaper" which gives me a blank/dark screen; too old to want to search for an icon among the distractions of other types of wallpaper; should be a "must" selection for other roms or have just a solid color selection for wallpaper.

I use the Tab 2 for universal remote control to replace a dead Harmony One about 1 yr ago. Don't have many apps on it as also have recently gotten a Nexus 7 for reading & carrying with a Nook HD+ for ebooks also; an Acer A700 for reading PDF files which may be dying due to a maybe flakey power charge connector either on the tablet or cable.

Will see what happens when "L" becomes available.......
