I'm just passing by here in my quest to update a Android tablet of a neighbour of mine, and see that you guys are experimenting with getting LineageOS 14.1 running smoothly on the Galaxy Tab 2.
First a small introduction of myself, my name is Jasper, I have been a LineageOS developer in the past for some time for eg. LG Optimus G and LG G2.
I see somebody is experimenting with the Low Ram option, this is definitely the way to go, seen the specs of this device.
How is it working out, need any assistance?
Also you could try make use of Zram. I've done that as well with LG G2, and even more modern devices (like Xiaomi Mi 5, which I own right now) make use of Zram by default.
Of course Zram needs to be enabled in kernel build, and maybe for this kernel needs some updating too.
Disable "signature verification" in settings of TWRP. As far as I rember the settings menu is on "advanced' page of TWRP.Hi ....
In the recovery, after selecting the file, it start to flash and after a while a receive the following message:
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E: footer is wrong
E: signature verificaion failed
I've tryed many solutions without success (downloading new one, tryed different package etc..).
Can someone help me getting rid of that issue?
Cyanogenmod recovery is very outdated and may cause problems. To quote the OP @Android-Andi :
Hi,Cyanogenmod recovery is very outdated and may cause problems. To quote the OP @Android-Andi :
Please use latest espresso-common TWRP to flash this rom, you can find it here.
(Other recoveries might work, but maybe cause issues - don't report flashing or Gapps issues if you use a different recovery).
I tried this ROM and the AOSP and both are great!
Everything goes well until the first offline battery charge. After that, the tablet goes with lag, with the CPU always at 95%-100% all the time!
I tested a lot (with clean flash all the time) and it´s a real strange thing, but it´s happening on my Tab 2 - 7´´ with the Lineage and the AOSP ROM too (with Slimkat all goes well with offline charge, for example).
So, does anybody know how can I turn off (or change) the script that does the offline charge on this ROM?
Thank you in advance!
Why should I? I don't have to request, I would only have to give the "go" which I don't. I am not focusing on N after the LineageOS 13 thread story.
I'd only add a device official if I would have enough time and fun on maintaining it. Since there's no device changes ATM there's no need to have an official build anyway.
