With a few requests from tab-plus owners, I started building ROMs for tab-plus. I don't want to ignor anyone so built for all models.
I can't reply all post because I don't have the tab to test. However, I tried to answer all PMs as detail as possible. Once a while in these few months, I received a few hostile PMs, calling me names, etc. I might have asked too many questions. I don't have the ability to guess what model or which ROM if they are not mentioned. I don't know why asking for a screen shot, a video or details would be too much for someone.
Anyway, I over estimated myself to support a device I don't have. I have spent too much resource and I don't think I can do this any more. Bye.
*** Lollipop is out so my development for Kitkat is done. As a closure, I included all tab-plus models in this final build***

for some unknown reason, download provider is missing in the final build
Patch didn't work and I need to rebuild. Hoping this is really the final.



CarbonRom is another aftermarket ROM having its unique features. I have been playing with Carbon for sometime. It has some unique features like CarbonFibers and ActiveDisplay. Another cool ROM worth trying. Cheers!

goo.im is up again!
Release Note:
2014/8/2
Just finished the GPU performance settings. In case some tabs might have lower tolerance, I lowered the GPU default min. and max. freq.
I also enable the Carbon performance tool. You can flash kernel and recovery from there. zRAM can only be enabled by TricksterMod. Old methods doesn't work on Kitkat. This build included all Carbon features. Enjoy!

2014/7/2
With help from @zombiezoom, the Carbon 4.4.4 build proved working on Tab plus. I do a sync before building for 7.7. It was a bad move. Carbon has an incomplete commit which cause me 12 hrs. to make the build pass.
On request from the local friends, link for Alipay is added in Donation.

2014/4/19

Thanks daniel, how to access the old internal storage, cause the path changes to "storage/emulated" (whatever i forgot)
I cannot see my data, cause the old internal storage in "mnt/shell/sdcard"

so I must manually move all data to new path internal storage ?

Of course not. I don't have a Tab Plus to test but there are links to /sdcard, /storage/sdcard0, etc.
I don't know why you say you can't access. Apks will find the data themselves. You have to be more specific. Which apks, what do you want to do, etc.

At least you have to tell which model you have in order to get helps from others.

Good luck!

I don't know what you meant by messing your file system?
I think you meant the content of the internal sdcard was moved to the folder 0. This is the way android handle multi user since 4.2. Your experience might only upto 4.1.2. There were similar misunderstandings early last year when 4.2 launched.

Flashing might corrupt the /data and/or /system partition. If it is interrupted during flash, partition info might be corrupted. Internal sdcard is inside /data and the content will be gone. But that would be a very rare situation. I would say one in a thousand.

Although there are over a thousand downloads all together, I haven't received a single success. I don't have a Tab-Plus to test so I decided to drop this build for Tab-Plus.

NO NO NO! PLEASE MAN! You can test anything with mine, just tell me what you want. I already provided a logcat.
This is the best rom yet, it has amazing features.

Normally, there would be a missing resource (for the resolution of your tab) causing crash but I can't find any error in your logcat. If systemUI crash, how can you use it...
I don't know how you got the logcat.
If systemUI crash, you can only get the log via a PC.
Type:
adb logcat > logfile
will dump the log to the file logfile in your current directory.
A clean flash will clear the debug from PC. Try a dirty flash to keep the debug privilege.
