CyanogenMod 12.1 is a free, community built distribution of Android 5.1 (LolliPop) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

This is the unofficial Build of CM12.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 I705 VZW LTE version.
**IMPORTANT** I705VRBLL2 FW required,if you have taken the latest OTA, and were not already rooted/unlocked you will not be able to use this ROM.
There is not root/unlock solution for the latest OTA. See more info in the last few pages of the linked root /unlock threads below.

To hear about the latest updates and changes to CyanogenMod as a whole, please follow +CyanogenMod on Google+!

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your 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.
 */
Installation Instructions (These are all required)
ROOT and BOOTLOADER unlock required following the linked guides.
Flash THIS custom TWRP recovery with SELinux capabilities.
Download latest ALPHA from http://downloads.codefi.re/jrior001/cm/espressovzw.
Locate 5.1 Gapps via a quick Google search.
Wipe factory/data reset in recovery before installing CM12.1 (unless you are already on a CM12.1 build).
Reboot into recovery and install ROM and gapps.

Known Issues:
LTE radio - Acts up at times requiring a reboot. Causes wakelocks
GPS sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Reboot usually fixes it.
CAMERA - 720p recording fails, all other resolutions work well
USB wakelocks after removing USB cable, "USB Connected" pop-up doesn't go away.
OTG/keyboard dock doesn't work at all

Overall device is smooth and stable minus the above listed issues. I will continue to work on these but wanted to get some feedback on this so far as well. I'm open to assistance if anybody else has one of these and some talent and wants to help.


Huge thanks:
@invisiblek and the rest of the Samsung MSM8960 device maintainers, without there work to follow this would have never happened..

These build utilize the existing samsung 8960 device trees and the 3.4 d2 caf kernel hosted at CM github as well as the following:

I'm not as experienced as some others so this took 3 attempts I think...in between 3-4 month breaks to get the 3.4 kernel booting but I finally got it.

I've got GPS fixed and I'm close on USB. Its proper in windows I think but Linux connectivity is still giving me issues. I'll try to get a new build up in a few days with all that.

2/28 build is up now, GPS and USB should be proper. OTG/dock still not working but not a major concern for now.

No, I could likely make one though.

Use the did method outlined in the old recovery thread or cheat like I do and download "flashify" from market to flash recovery
