Introduction
Only for Tab2 A7-10 MT8127 variant
Stock rom, rooted, debloated, with updated and added apps


Installation instructions
Install MTK USB Drivers (windows xp/vista/7 - Windows 8/8.1/10 - other windows 10) and flash using SP Flash Tool (howto - howto)

Important notes :
  • Always prefer a clean install than an upgrade/dirty install.
    If you have any problem when dirty installing/upgrading, do a clean install and see if problem persists
  • In SP Flash Tool, always use "Download Only" mode when not explicitly asked to do otherwise (you could lose your IMEI/WIFI/BT) or if you don't know what you are doing.
  • Please do NOT ask about any problem with USB drivers or SP Flash Tool here in this thread, this is not the right place for it as these problems are not related to THIS particular ROM but to YOUR computer setup. There are other threads and/or sites about such problems.

Suggested
Flash remove_lenovo_ota.zip to avoid future accidents : do not install official OTA update on a non official ROM
OTA update availability can be checked here or there, depending on Lenovo versioning (is v57 20160614 - from OTA file name - or 20160701 - from Android settings info ?)


Changelog
v3.0 :
- based on unofficial v57 package
- rooted (SuperSU 2.76)
- blocked stock recovery self-installation
- debloated : /system/vendor/operator, AnyShare, AnySync, LenovoId, bootaudio.mp3, bootanimation.zip, shutanimation.zip, loading.zip
- updated apps on /system
- replaced AOSP Agenda with Google Agenda
- added Google Street View

3 available scatter files in rom:
- stock recovery
- TWRP3
- TWRP2

Is there a way to update TWRP and the ROM only and keep the apps and other stuff from installation?

After a TWRP backup, you can try updating without flashing userdata partition and see what happens, but i would recommend a clean install anyway :

Some users reported apps crashing after updating.
If you are lucky, you may only have to update google play services. That's what happened for me, but some other issue i already had before applying this update only disappeared after a clean install.

Lenovo updates do not pop quite often, for me they are perfect time for a clean install

Great!

Could you create a more detailed tutorial for installing this ROM and TWRP?

I'm not familiar with the SP Flash Tool, and I'd like to avoid bricking the tablet...

You kept mentioning in other threads that this is for the MT8127 variant? How can I find out what variant is my tablet?
Also the SP Flash Tool how to isn't very helpful because it implies that the tablet should be connected in a power off state, and of course, nothing works...

And here too in "Introduction", thread title...

Use any hardware info app, such as CPU-Z or Aida64
If you're not asian, you should have a MT8127.

Your tablet has to be turned off to flash it, this is how MTK flashing works

Except it does not warn about "Download Only" mode (it's default mode, if you don"t know what you're doing, don't change it... ), i don't see anything wrong with this tutorial.

If anyone finds a better tutorial about SPFT, i'd be glad to add it to first post.

As It turns out, I became a victim of my habits... I own multiple Android devices (mainly samsung and OnePlus) and usually when I download a ZIP file, it's intended to be flashed, and I didn't check the contents.

After unpacking, everything became clear... Thank you for your hard work!
My tablet has been operating almost perfectly since then. The WiFi has some signal strength problems (only 1 bar, while other devices show full strength), but it works.
