Alright AA, sorry it took so long. But, we have boot! Root is working with SuperSU, and IR Remote is a go! It'll turn the TV off but won't turn it on, but everything else (channel, volume, menu, etc) is fully functional! Awesome!! I haven't DL'ed all the apps I use, but I don't see why it would be a problem. Nor have I played with all the goodies. If I come across something, I'll report it! Excellent job, AA, got SlimKat up in here!
Oh, for everyone, P5113 with Core Gapps!

Hi

I'm trying to install RC2 onto a 5100 and the flash keeps failing. I've downloaded several times to rule out corrupt download.

I'm currently using TWRP 2.6.3.0, but it also fails on CWM.


Any ideas please?

Edit:

Sorted by updating TWRP to 2.6.3.5

Is it worth updating install instructions in OP? I found the info from the CM thread....

@CarlT Update your Recovery!
TWRP 2.6.3.3 or newer,
CWM 6.0.4.4 or newer - or CWM based recoverys (PhilZ Touch or Advanced CWM)

DonĀ“t report issues if you are using a different kernel, but in general there is only Dhollmen available for Android 4.4 for the Tab 2
