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. :D

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. :eek:
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.

Yes, the logcat I provided was done from my Linux laptop. Now, I only saw SystemUI crash warning once but everytime I boot the device I see a black screen no home! just the toolbar and softkeys.
So, if you need another one, I'll make another.

Screenshots after a clean flash uploaded and you can see that I cannot access Home or Apps drawer
I also attached a ZIP of 3 logcat files.

Thank you Daniel, everything is working as it should. But sometimes when restarting the tablet, it gets stuck on the CarbonRom logo. That's the only problem I encountered so far. I will update this post if I found any other problems.

EDIT: seems like it was fixed by flashing Minimal GApps ^^

Can folks please post experiences on the p6200, I've been using the 7.7 version which is fantastic, the most usable daily rom but if this is good enough on the plus, I'd really like to suggest this rom to a friend who is still stuck with 4.1 jb

I am currently using the latest version and it's so amazing, ROCK stable. I have no problems with it. It's the best for Tab Plus so far.

EDIT: BTW a lot of people here -and I don't know why- don't appreciate the massive work that Daniel has made for Tab Plus. You could see a lot of downloads being counted but only a few people who would comment with reviews or even a thank you!

I'm extremely great full for daniel_hk's work but i think it would be great is somebody would test all P6200 roms and test them on common every day app and games and give feed back and benchmark scores as i have no idea what rom to try first ??? just look at the choices just from daniel_hk
this one is on my list to be tested just saying keep up the great work

Can we have some screenshots ram usage and benchmarks scores from somebody that uses it already? might cause more downloads and more replies

Thanks for your feedback on the plus zombiezoom, great to hear.

I've been trailing mainly P6800 (7.7) rom mods for about a year now. Its fantastic to be able to get access to these roms and everyone's hard work particularly Daniel, I must say he has so many roms posted and its great to trial them. I've been looking for a stable alternative to stock now for a while and I think I've found it.

I think people who use the roms are likely following guides from other sites, they just download, trial and don't comment here. To get everything working efficiently we do need to focus comments here to help the developers/ and ultimately ourselves by getting a nice working rom.

@ this point to have wifi, bluetooth, mobile function and other major functions to be working reliably is great. I'm sure those who make the switch from stock and remain would likely consider donations. I said on the 7.7 topic, that I rather less fancy functions and features and more stability. This way we can all leave the stock rom behind just like samsung left us there and turn to our rom of choice. Once we do that we then can support our developers who can in turn keep our devices stable and alive.

Thanks
