I'm not responsible for any damage to your device of any sort.
By flashing this you take responsibility of anything that happens.
Process at your own risk!


This firmware was developed for the p905. It doesn't apply to the p905v at this time because it's bootloader locked and a custom recovery isn't possible.

If you want to check firmware - please make backup. Better to store all partitions, at least efs and may be modem.
I'm using nano gapps.


Instructions
1. Install custom recovery
2. Download the zip(s) - firmware and Google Apps additional package (optional)
3. Backup all partitions (it least efs) and store somewhere - it need to do - because you can loose imei
4. Full wipe all
5. Flash firmware and gapps

I have tested this ROM for a few days.


When starting the device it gives a message system process stopped.
Next error I get insert sim, does not look to be recognized yet.
Further I did not get issues, with the basic programs.

Looks promising

Thank you for all the work on this!

Thanks for the releasing Oreo for the P905. It is sad that there is still no new 12" Note tablet on the market that take it's place. Especially because of that we all appreciate your work so we are not forced to abandon the device.

However I sincerly hope that you continue to release 14.1 versions until this rom is out of alpha. I and presumably others use that version as a daily driver. You skipped september security updates, I presume you couldn't find the time, so I hope for an october release. It is sad that android now needs monthly security updates but it seems it's the way things flow these days.

Kind regards,

I'm sorry, all september worked with a oreo. I do not forget the lineage 14, I did several test builds, and fixed the pressing of the left button with the s-pen (tasks switching). There is yesterday's build - publish it or wait a couple of days and post a september security update?
In any case, I will continue to work with lineage 14, I really do not like consumption in standbye mode, I want to try another kernel. Also, there is still a problem with adjusting the volume during calls.

@Valera1978,
thanks for clarifying that. I think everybody who uses your rom understands that this is a one man show and your time is limited. Regarding publishing, of cause I can't speak for anybody than myself I presume that people would agree to skip the september updates. The october updates are already available and regarding security I think digital, either everything known is patched and you are secure as far as it possible or your are not. I don't think it makes much of a difference if you have more or less vulnerabilites.

One thing that might interest other people in regards of security update is blueborne. I'm curently not sure on which level this must be patched. If it's the driver level than things might get difficult for devices that went out of support. Your last rom 0823 shows vulnerability regarding that bug collection.

Thanks for your continued work on that rom.
Kind regards,
mnemonic-de

@Valera1978 are you using the same Lineage 14.1 kernel? The work needs improvements (in the part of the calls mainly) but for an alpha version is very good. Thank you!

Just curious

Is this rom being developed actively or was it more "Proof of concept" right now.

Asking because i have some issues that i could live with for a while, while it is being developed, but as i see no updates i am thinking of going back to 14.1
