In case someone likes to compile on their own:

You need to setup Linux first, good tutorial here:
Ubuntu / Xubuntu:

- https://nathanpfry.com/how-to-setup-...-android-roms/

Arch based Linux ready to go:
- BBQLinux by @codeworkx http://bbqlinux.org/

Once you have synced Evervolv source run the following in terminal:
Code:
mkdir -p .repo/local_manifests
nano .repo/local_manifests/local_manifest.xml
Add the following to your local_manifest.xml:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
-<manifest>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="vendor/samsung" name="Evervolv/android_vendor_samsung"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="hardware/samsung" name="Evervolv/android_hardware_samsung"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="kernel/samsung/msm8916" name="Evervolv/android_kernel_samsung_msm8916"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="device/samsung/qcom-common" name="Evervolv/android_device_samsung_qcom-common"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="device/samsung/msm8916-common" name="Evervolv/android_device_samsung_msm8916-common"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="device/samsung/gt5-common" name="Evervolv/android_device_samsung_gt5-common"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="device/samsung/gt510wifixx" name="Evervolv/android_device_samsung_gt510wifixx"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0" remote="github" path="device/samsung/gt58wifixx" name="Evervolv/android_device_samsung_gt58wifixx"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0-8916" remote="github" path="hardware/qcom/audio-caf/msm8916" name="Evervolv/android_hardware_qcom_audio-caf"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0-8916" remote="github" path="hardware/qcom/display-caf/msm8916" name="Evervolv/android_hardware_qcom_display-caf"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0-8916" remote="github" path="hardware/qcom/media-caf/msm8916" name="Evervolv/android_hardware_qcom_media-caf"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0-caf" remote="github" path="hardware/qcom/bt-caf" name="Evervolv/android_hardware_qcom_bt"/>
<project revision="mm-6.0-caf" remote="github" path="hardware/qcom/wlan-caf" name="Evervolv/android_hardware_qcom_wlan"/>
</manifest>
Save the file.
Back in terminal:
Code:
repo sync
. build/envsetup.sh
lunch gt510wifixx
make otapackage
(you can replace gt510wifixx with gt58wifixx if you like to build for the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 WIFI (SM-T350)

Umm not trying to sound like a jerk here but doesn't the title of the thread say it's for the Samsung Tab SM-T550?

---------- Post added at 18:02 ---------- Previous post was at 18:00 ----------

What about the Samsung Tab A 8.0 (SM-T350)? Will it work? Would love to flash it. 😊

@deadman96385:

First of all many apreciate for your hard work, you didn`t give up just like me^^

Will it be possible to compile pure cm with your repos?
Just saw that you updated the branches...
Will both Galaxy-Tab-A and Evervolv repos be updated?

Maybe you can add a how-to of flash for some new users just like that: https://andi34.github.io/faq.html
And some additional informations later like here :http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...m13-0-t3303798

Thanks @Android-Andi
