You need to download apk from Netflix site.

I think its first guide how to do it because every other guides were for TB2-X30F but not for TB2-X30L.

I have only found lineage os for x30l, can someone please link lineage (Android 7) for x30f?

The difference between L and F is that L is the sim card variant. Ive read several people getting "insert sim card" when installing L on a F tablet. So I dont want messages like this.

I have followed the instructions and successfully installed LiOS14. Then, however, I have factory reset the tablet via Settings. Now it always boots to TWRP, no matter what I have tried I could not installed back the LiOS14 :( I only have TWRP right now.

Any help?

The tablet can also run on LineageOS 16 which is Android 9.
As I saw that the guys in the Russian 4PDA-Forum had been able to create a LiOS16, I was able to make some adjustments and compile a ROM with most recent security patches which now runs on my good old TB2-X30L / TAB2 A10-30:

Hallo,

I have installed LiOS14-UNOFFICIAL-TB2-X30L.zip. The installation was without problems.

But I am having problem with WiFi - problem of MAC 02:00:00:00:00:00. I have tried a lots of tips but nothig worked. Two times I was succesfull to set some MAC, but always, after while, it was gone. No able to reproduce to set.

Is it really so difficult to set somehow the MAC addres for the WiFi?

As I understand the setting of the MAC differs between different releases of OS. Does anybody know how it work in this release? It should by known where this relaese expects the MAC setting. Am I right?

1. temporary succes: Setting MAC in system/etc/firmware/wlan/qca_cld/wlan_mac.bin (I think. Its longer time ago and there was more attempts). It lasted for few months. It is not mine device so I don't know how it was handled.
2. temporary succes: I copied system/etc/firmware/wlan dir to system/vendor/firmware/wlan. I did it based on how it is in Samsung Galaxy S4 mini with Lineage 16. It worked. After restart I had to swith off and on the airplane mode to set MAC. After few attempts it was gone. No able to reproduce to set the MAC.

I am not Linux expert :)

Thank you very much, install your rom on my TB2-X30F and it goes very well, the only drawback that I present is that the wifi is very slow but the rom is excellent, thank you very much for your work.

Hi all, I've been trying to install the L16 version but I cannot install gapps or any zip from twrp. What is the procedure to install it correctly?
