Thumbs up [Solved] [SM T211] is there no support for Custom Roms and Rooting

Hello members,


1. There is no official support for Cyanogen nor for Paranoid Android.
2. Rooting is only possible via a huge prerooted file, which can cause you security leaks in some causes. [Solved, root available]
3. Lock Screen Button fails to respond (Occasionally) and its not a hardware glitch. [Solved by OTA update]
4. Development support is over the internet is limited.

Here are my questions!
1> Anyone using any Custom ROMS with official support from the developers?

1> How many of you rooted it, without the pre rooted file?

These tabs are just taking off wait for a while . There's no rush you all will get your support after the 210 and 210r . I am still lacking knowledge of these boards. Soon when I get those two get cm I may be able to port and add configurations for all the 7inch models but I can do it alone I needs some more devs to help as I have no kernel skills period or debugging skills. They all share common kernel source which is great I can too make common device source after this all gets worked out

Thats because there is no custom recovery for the SM-T211 yet, so the ROM is there.. but there is no way to flash it as of yet.
Thanks,
Jack
