Android Koolkit V2.0.0 Tab3 SM-T217A/T


YOU MUST HAVE ROOT In order to use these tweaks.
I have had reports that it works for the Sprint Variant as well but I am leaving that up to your judgement as I cannot verify without the device in hand.







Code:
Install and Use
1. Install the Toolkit as seen in the screenshots above
2. Connect your device and make sure you have USB drivers installed
3. Review the Readme screen
4. From the "Tools" menu - Install Busybox
5. Choose any or all of the included customizations
6. Wait for the notifications on the device to complete
7. Choose the reboot option and restart your device.
Code:
Changelog
Changelog V2.0.0
1. All new windows installer for ease of install
2. Requires .NET 4.5 and up
3. Easy interface for all features
4. Complete debloat (user configurable)
5. Complete Tweaks (User configurable)
6. Build Prop tweaks (User Configurable)
7. Reboot menu for recovery/download mode
8. SecSettings modified to remove OTA Updates

10. Install apps to system or user space
11. Install busybox

Quote:

Instructions for customizing the bloatware removal and build.prop tweaks:
Located in "/files/bloat/nobloat.txt" is a text file named nobloat.txt, Choose "File" - Edit Bloat Removal and make your changes.
To add your customizations simply add the file name of the apk (Case Sensitive), if the apk also has a coresponding odex
file you will need to add the path to that as well following all case sensitive patterns. Be careful when adding apks to this list if you
add an apk that is required by the system to boot you will be required to flash the stock rom and start over from scratch.

To edit the build.prop tweaks use the "File" - Edit Build.prop Settings, make your changes and save the file.
To Edit the sysctl settings use the "File" - Edit sysctl Configuration, make your changes and save the file.
Once you are comfortable that you have your configurations correct you can move on to applying the features
of this toolkit to your device.


Thanks
@oldbbman - for his absolute willingness to test anything and everything under the sun.
and for not running away screaming when he had to reflash his Tab3 multiple times.

Huh. This actually worked for me. These things never work for me. There is a noticeable difference in speed.

Thanks!

this was designed to work with the three main 217 models since the AT&T model is the one I own i needed to create this package to work for that model.so rather than create two different packages that do the same thing i created it as a script manager based install that will work on all three devices.

should work fine on 217S as long as your running stock firmware, should work for 4.1.2 and 4.2.2
