LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1.0 (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.



Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */
LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.


This thread is for Unofficial LineageOS 15.1 builds for gvwifi (SM-T670). The following will not be supported here:
Custom kernels
Mods
Xposed

I don't support Xposed and any logcat which includes a Xposed module will be ignored. You're kindly invited to not report bugs if you:
Flashed a custom kernel
Installed or did mods from untrusted sources
Modified system files


First time flashing LineageOS 15.1 on your device, or coming from another ROM?
Download the zip(s)
Install a compatible Recovery
Perform a nandroid backup of your current ROM (Optional)
Wipe data/factory reset
Flash LineageOS
Install the Google Apps addon package (Required)
Reboot

Some tips and tricks:

No touchscreen support, very little of the UI works with the touchscreen so to setup and use the device you will need a Bluetooth controller/remote personally I am using an Xbox Controller that has Bluetooth but I have also confirmed that the nexus player remote works as well. Pretty much anything that has buttons will work.

Due to the light sensor not working I would recommend you use UnderBurn from the google play store in its place it works very well you will need to launch it through something like ChainFire's great Sideload Launcher (as the lineage AppDrawer/LineageCustomizer apps aren't ready for the new Oreo LeanbackLauncher format yet.

Netflix and Google Play Movies both fail because L1 is broken. Due to some apps not being able to fallback to L3 when L1 fails, You could sideload the phone/tablet version of Netflix (which uses L3, but is limited to 720p), and launch it through something like ChainFire's great Sideload Launcher (as the lineage AppDrawer/LineageCustomizer apps aren't ready for the new Oreo LeanbackLauncher format yet.

Casting to the tablet from another phone/tablet does not work due to restrictions put in place by google for casting to work it needs special keys in the keybox that are justly only provisioned on atv devices. So unless i can find a way to hack around it they will never work.

Sorry for the bad picture

You should change the DPI to 320 (= same as 1080p tv) or maybe 280

Hi I have an SM-T670 and I haven't been able to get this version of the OS installed on my Galaxy View. I've tried installing it from the bootloader off of an SD Card, as well as using adb to try to push it. Neither have worked. I've also looked at using the Lineage downloader, TWRP app, Tether and ROM Manager and haven't found a recovery that is compatible with this particular hardware. Could you provide some guidance about the best way to perform this installation? Thanks in advance! -Adam

Hi, I am a user of shield tablet so I couldn't enjoy your development... But I'm interested in your work since our device also have LineageOS and I think it's not impossible to change my tablet into shield tv! So if it's not rude, can you teach me what you changed from the original LineageOS source? Thnx

(Sorry for my bad English)
