    Dunno if you got any help with this but I suggest reading this tread. I settled on the latest lineage os 19 build without gapps. I use aururo store (how ever its spelled) to download stuff from the playstore. I use termux, vmware horizon, and accasionaly play baulders gate on it. It wont play...

    Did it get damaged ever so slightly perhaps? Sounds like a cracked digitizer but I'm no expert. If the issue persists through the factory reset then that leads me to think hardware/connection failure. Did you try the reflashing?

    Its a GSM image i believe so you should be able to flash it to most anything newer. Ive had success(somewhat) flashing these images on other devices. I believe when I looked it up before the sm-t295 is just a different version of the t290 so it should work. If you try it then let us know because...

    Thank you, I've been needing other sources for apps. I just realized you said you got 800mb free on 19.1, hows that running? Do you have a tap delay when coming out of sleep or after the device has set for 10 seconds or so? It'll register my taps but takes a second and I've been trying to figure...

    Yeah, i dunno..... I feel like this tab should do better then it does. I think the processor may be the culperate? Something that helps is setting the governor to userspace and setting frequancy to max so it doesn't fluctuate. Had todo that through termux cause i dont know another way. I think...

    As Jm said, make sure you have the right file. The naming scheme is on the dl site but get one that has 'arm64.bgS'.img.

    Well if you already have TWRP, the rest is gravy. The site has instructions but pretty much dl the .zip and copy it to an easily findable spot (like the sdcard), boot up into twrp, flash the .zip file, do a wipe-> format data and then reboot. If you don't do the wipe format before reboot then...

    Pretty sure these are generic images for most android phones although not everything is guaranteed to work. As long as you have twrp installed you should be able to back up and flash it. Andy yan also has a github site with the source I believe. I see that yours is just an lte model so I would...

The above mentioned lineage-19.1-20220320-UNOFFICIAL-arm64_bgS.img is supposed to have root enabled. In the nexus rom there is an option to turn root on under the phh's treble menu...

    Came across this while trying to root my sm-t290. Just want to add that Andy Yan has upgraded to a 19.1 version that appears to work just fine. Flashed to system partition using twrp after I had flashed the Nexus rom. Wifi works, sound works, sd card, bluetooth keyboard works just fine.

    So I created a XDA account just to thank you Viva and the others that worked on this! I wanted to mention that this was super simple using a linux machine. No driver issues or nothing like that, but it kind of through me off when adb wasn't showing the tablet after 'adb reboot bootloader'...
