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.

I tried the above suggestion regarding editing the build.prop on my sgh-i467 to get safestrap to display properly, but I didn't have any luck...Unfortunately, now touchwiz crashes every time that I turn the device back on...

I have tested with screen density issues with Touchwiz, Android system, and UI within App Settings for Xposed.

Have seen Touchwiz crash with any density setting of 220 and beyond... I think along with the build.prop you will need to adjust DPI. I have kept mine at 213 as it looks best and does not have issues with apps and OS.

Again the build.prop should have settings for both Touchwiz and system DPI. just not familiar enough with what you are doing to say that can be done with or without using xposed framework and app settings.

Obviously Safestrap is not that tweakable to use on tablets, as phones have different layouts an density.
