 * Your (expired) warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Hi, I'm currently trying to get this device officially supported again as I really love it and it never let me down in the last 5 or so years. It still works amazingly fast and I have no need to replace it with anything else.

As I'm a Java engineer for my day job there is a lot of new stuff here, I had some contact with C/C++ when I studied CS a couple of years ago but never actually wrote anything bigger than two or three files in these languages. This is quite an adventure and I learned a lot already but I'm open for any help you can offer. After all, I'm doing this for fun and getting better at whatever hits me in the face while doing it.

Current Status

  • Audio
  • Video
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Hardware Acceleration
  • SELinux
  • Sensors
  • IR
  • RIL (N8000)
  • Wifi (98% of the time?)

Partly working
  • Camera (use OpenCamera, zoom and focus not working currently)
  • Setup Wizard: Voice Match installation screen has wrong rotation
  • MTP (occasionally crashing)

Not working at all
  • RIL (N8020)

Reporting Bugs

Please provide logcat, dmesg, kmsg, steps to reproduce or whatever is appropriate to help me understand the issue.
Here is a link to help you help me: How To Logcat

Source Code

Device #1: n8000
Device #2: n8013
Device #2: n8020
Common: n80xx-common
Common: p4notelte-common
SoC: smdk4412-common
SoC QC: smdk4412-qcom-common
Kernel: smdk4412
Hardware: samsung

  • Q: Why another thread?!?
  • A: The ROM provided by @lirokoa is great but it is based on sources that deviated quite a lot from the official LOS repo, I try to close this gap and get the ROM aligned to the remaining devices based on the SMDK4412 core so that everbody profits from the development going on there. This ultimately means that we can get a 8.x alpha version "soon" after fixing the remaining issues.
  • Q: How can I help to improve the ROM?
  • A: If you are a developer, I'd be happy to discuss the remaining issues with you and how to approach/solve them. I'm open for pull requests on Github. If you are testing the ROM and can provide log files for issues this is also a great thing, even more so if it is one of the devices I do not own.
  • Q: What's up with the performance?
  • A: Disable Live Display, it's actually not supported by the GPU (or at least by the current driver)
  • Q: The camera is crashing!
  • A: Use Open Camera

Credits and Thanks
  • all the people that worked/are still working on the smdk4412 device and kernel source code, this wouldn't be possible without their hard work!
  • the guys from #lineageos-dev channel for helping me out with my questions
  • all the people posting helpful guides in various sections all over the forums
  • @lirokoa for the updates and support that helped this device to live on until today

  • use TWRP files from the link below!
  • coming from stock: flash TWRP TAR.MD5 file via Odin (I used 3.12 for this) or Heimdall (latest)
  • TWRP already installed: flash TWRP IMG file via TWRP
  • boot into recovery
  • wipe cache + dalvik/art
  • coming from stock/another rom: wipe system + data
  • flash ROM first, then GApps without rebooting the device
  • wipe the cache again just for fun

Need Root for Apps?

TWRP got it's own thread, click this link to get there.


Open GApps
  • Click me (ARM - 7.1 - don't use FULL as there is not enough space to install it - try micro or lower instead)

There is a new build with basic camera support, the back camera has some issues with recording videos which will crash your camera app. I noticed that activating the torch while having the camera app open in the background/foreground will also crash the camera app, so still some issues there.

The work on the camera will go on after the big party, I wish everyone a good start into 2019

Great. I've just incidentally gone back to this forum after a long time to check if there's any newer ROM than lirokoa's for my N8000
I'll check it out. Thanks a lot

Got it all installed - but can't get over an error code 190 ("can't download app")when trying to install chrome. Unsure if this is rom related or gapps related.
Also flashed the 14.1 su package - works well with the rom as expected. Youtube from the play store does not work - plays audio but no video. Other than that as I play with this I'll see if I can find any other bugs. Really appreciative of you picking this up!

Thank you very much for continuing the development of this tablet!

My N8000 is presently running on lirakoa's latest build lineage-14.1-20170810-UNOFFICIAL-n8000 with open gapps micro and as root solution Magisk 18.0.
Recovery is TWRP 3.02.

Everything is working fine except the well known bugs, and it seems that most of these have been fixed in your latest build.

I've never tried video recording with this tablet but had some camera crashes recently when using the ClearScanner app, in fact it's not usable with this app.

Otherwise I think it's usable as daily driver, and it was.
My daughter used it for university until recently.

So, as far as I understand, your build should be on the same level and I'm gonna try it very soon.

Do you think a dirty flash could work?
