I was just comparing my A10-70F running 6.0.1 with my mother's which is on stock 5.0.1 and found that my screen was distinctly dull and grey in comparison. After removing f.lux and checking all the display and battery settings were the same I was stumped.
That was until I discovered that the brightness slider setting does absolutely nothing on mine!

Does it work for everyone else?

@mr-br People with non-working brightness sliders on this tablet usually have enabled auto-brightness somehow, which does not work, as the tablet doesn't have an ambient light sensor. If you disable auto-brightness (for which you might need an app, as there are no controls for it in the standard settings app), then the brightness slider should work again.

Yes tx I found this seems to be a generic issue with this tablet. Found the app via a thread on the lenovo forum.


"I just installed the App "Best Display Brightness Level" from "Top10Labs" out of the GPlay-Store, then start it and uncheck the "Auto Brightness" tick Smiley Happy After that, i can use the built in brightness slider, even after uninstall the app Smiley Happy"

My screen still has rather a blue cast though ...

Has anyone installed this ROM coming from (rooted) stock 5.0.1 yet?

To which ROM do you refer??
If you mean the Stock then pretty much everyone I guess.
If you mean my custom stock then nobody has even bothered to report anything back at all.
I am pretty sure it would be just fine but until a few report back to it's OK I cant offer any Guarantees.
If your use to SPFlashTool then restoring the tablet would not be an issue anyway.

Yes, I do mean the stock Lenovo 5.0.1. Another question would be on your custom ROM 6.0, are there any issues for Tab2 A10-70F? As I have observed, you and others in Europe have the L version, which is not available to us in the US. Also, thank you for your hard work and guidance for the device, it is appreciated.

Most of us and me included are on the "F" version I think..
It is just that the L firmware also works on our F versions.
Maybe I should make it clear that my ROM is the WiFi version only as I stripped some of the RIL parts out of the ROM

No problem
Be sure to let us know how it all goes.
PS: Is that the Fire Phone you have?? I have just bricked my second Fire Phone trying unlock that darn bootloader again. I maybe able to recover this one though as there are still some signs of life unlike the last one

Here is 1 for the "Fixed Issue List" ............. :

Enable Multi Window and Multi User Modes:

If you have a rooted Marshmallow ROM, you can enable the 2 features above by editing the build.prop file found in /system/

For multi-window mode, change this entry in build.prop

ro.build.type=user

to -

ro.build.type=userdebug

To enable multi-user mode, add these 2 lines to the build.prop (anywhere, it doesn't matter)

fw.max_users=3
fw.show_multiuserui=1

Once you've made these changes, reboot the tablet.

To use multi-window mode, go to Settings, Developer options, and there will be a new menu item to switch this on or off.

To use multi-user, there will be a new option under Settings called Users.

This is a cool one from the "Fixed Issue List". I think you already have the "Sleep Issue" addressed....

One other item that would be good to make note of for others "future issues" is even though the battery is a non-removeable, it is unpluggable! As was detailed and helped solve an issue in original forum and this helped get device into an off state that fixed an issue someone was having (even though I believe it turned out his device was the wrong model)!

I'm late getting in on this forum due to my home network (AT&T U-Verse), but finally got the ROM downloaded, installing it today!
Thanks for alllllllllll the efforts Bigrammy that has gotten this device to this page!
Look forward to all the upcoming dev' contributions!

ps... 2 other items
1. for those using external speakers/bluetooth soundbars etc... here is a non-root volume booster from the playstore that does even more than it says, my first time to find an actual volume booster that does not change anything invasively that is this powerful: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...volume.booster

2. And for the record, I'm using a PNY 128GB High Speed MicroSD XC Memory Card (P-SDUX128U165G-GE) that is 119GB formatted in "mixed" mode with adoptable storage.... "mixed 14%" gives me 32gb internal and 102gb leftover on card so its recognizeable by a computer when plugged in! No problems whatsoever like I have had before with another LG device and mixed adoptable storeage settings like the LG had where card was always hesitating to load up causing apps to be greyed out, none at all, not one time!
Adoptable Storage in MM (with mixed mode):

adb shell

sm list-disks

sm list-volumes all

sm set-force-adoptable true

sm partition disk:179,128 private (replace with mixed what number you want to be external, ie: mixed 80 will leave 80% of card as external, 20% external)

sm set-force-adoptable false

sm list-volumes all

NOTE: the fourth command partitions your SD card, and may take 2-3 minutes (or longer) to complete, depending on the size of your card. plus make sure you have a reliable and fast SD Card.

Disconnect your phone from the USB cable and reboot it. The reboot is crucial. Your phone may (or may not) take a bit longer to boot this time.

Once your phone is fully booted, tap Settings > Developer Options and disable USB Debugging, clicking “OK” to any messages that may appear.

Go to Settings > Storage & USB and tap your SD card. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner and choose “Migrate data”.
