Hi. first of all thank you for giving another life to our device.
i'm not sure if this is a noob question but i'm having trouble with the screen orientation. i have set the orientation to portrait and locked it, but when the screen turns off and on again, it returns to landscape mode. i have experienced this too with lineage 16. is this a thing with newer android versions?

you're right, I've never tried this, I'm not sure why this happens yet.

This prop was removed after android 7 what I know.
I would have to set
to a different value to enforce the portrait mode.

You could try to set:

one set to true and the other one set to false
It's overriden with false by me, otherwise PIP and multi user support wouldn't be present.

reboot into twrp, choose install and the downloaded file.

Reboot and the magisk manager should be there, if not, install the downloaded apk manually in the system.
Thanks. I thought I can just download magisk manager apk and install it as apk. Was strange to me that I had to rename it to zip and install via TWRP.

Update 01.07.2021:
  • treblelized n8000 and n8010
It was a hard way to get there, everything should work completely equal than it did before,
please test it very well.

If you want to flash your fist GSI, you can proceed here:

many thanks for this rom. I have the GT-N8000 Tab, but I don't use the 3G, I use only Wifi. Is it possible I can also use/install the rom only for Wifi Tab (GT-N8010)?

At present I have install your last Rom of 2021-04.28 for GT-N8000. For GT-N8010 you have a newer rom online.

Sorry for my "survival" english :)

Many greatings

    Update 24.07.2021:
    Via OTA and AFH.
    Happened to me a couple of times when powering off it just turned back on by itself amongst some other random reboots, one of the bugs in this ALPHA builds I guess!
    Yes, this weird bug was already reported recently, I still have no idea why this happens.
    Update 06.07.2021:
    • WIFI and RIL fixes for AOSP
    Now you can flash your first GSI on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

    This update will be available via AFH and OTA.
    Update 15.07.2021:
    • Included permissions for signature spoofing
    • Disabled wallpaper zoom ( lowered max scale for the wallpaper when it's zoomed in )
    • Increased heap for the main camera, now the picture bug should be eliminated (hopefully, wasn't able to reproduce it)
    • Inserted parted for repartitioning, this will be necessary for most GSI's in future (just a single process, it will persist).
    • Inserted a fixgsi script, with this we are able to boot up most android 11 GSI's (but most of them will not be stable without my patches).
    This update is for n8000 and n8010 only, via OTA and AFH.
    Hello html6405!
    First of all, thank you for your work! you are keeping this device alive! I got one recently and I tried both LineageOS 16.0 Android 9 and LineageOS 18.1 Android 11 on N8020. I am writing you to report about some of the problems that I found. I hope this will be helpful for you and for other users :)
    Let's start with LineageOS 16.0 Android 9: I used it for about a month. I never faced any problem but, I found that Bluetooth does not work. The device was not able to read the Bluetooth address and therefore the device was unable to discover any other device.
    LineageOS 18.1 Android 11: I didn't have time to try it for a long time because the device is restarting. it reaches the operation system, you can work a bit on it and after a minute or a few minutes, it restarts again. Still, it was enough time to check the Bluetooth. It works but I found that the IMEI is gone. the device was not able to read it.

    Trying to solve the mentioned problems I always had a fresh install. Each time I flashed the device with an N8020XXUDNI2_VFGDNJ2 rom before installing LineageOS 16 or 18.1.
    I hope there is a solution to these problems or at least this information would help to find one!
    Thanky you again!

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


    here you can find my preview build version of LineageOS 18.1 for our Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 devices.
    At first I want to thank @forkbomb444, @rINanDO, @ChronoMonochrome for all your work which helped me a lot to bring this up.

    This is a preview build, so don't install it if you want a stable rom and don't report my already listet bugs!

    I'm working nearly every day on our N80xx devices, because LOS18 runs much smoother than LOS17.1, I will continue here.

    When you have BitGapps installed, you have to reflash them after every update!

    Here you can see how far everything is working for now.

    N8000, N8010, N8013, N8020:
    • Boot
    • Audio
    • Bluetooth
    • Graphics
    • Cameras
    • Sensors
    • Wifi
    • GPS
    • USB
    • Video playback (HW/SW)
    • Tethering via USB, WIFI and Bluetooth
    • consumerir transmitter
    • Stylus with gestures and hovering icon
    • sec keyboard dock
    • RIL on N8000 (mobile connection)
    • much more...
    • Video recording with both cameras
    • Power off charging animation fixed
    • GPS
    • LiveDisplay
    • Magisk Root fixed
    • OTA Updates
    • Screen Cast, Chromecast did work, Samsung TV not
    • Main camera sometimes can't take a picture (reopen app or lower resolution)
    • Random reboots
    • Maybe more
    • N8020: RIL
    • Screen lightning bug
    You could use a gps.conf from https://app.box.com/s/w57s1v1n3hie7l5lk28i for your location and replace /system/etc/gps.conf.
    Or you try GPS Server Optimizer app for a faster 3D fix.
    For both methods you need root rights.
    If you are going to use Gapps,
    here you can download them:
    Open Gapps test versions
    For the others, you can use microG in future.

    Do you like my work?
    Than you can simply hit the thanks button and consider to spend me a coffee or a beer,
    I'm doing this in my free time and it also costs a lot of money to buy hardware.

    Last Updated 2021-07-24
    This ROM is alpha, nobody can force me to bring any updates,
    I'm doing this in my freetime, so be thankful if you get something.

    I will proceed here as soon as I will have time, I didn't have LOS16.0 completed and I'm working hard to provide you a stable ROM.
    LOS 16.0 is our major version, on LOS18.1 is much more work todo and much more framework hackings to get LOS18.1 as good compatible as possible.

    I'm overtaking many things I make for LOS16.0 to 18.1, but this take's time.
    I hate it if I get stressed, so please be patent or do it by your own,
    this takes really much time, debugging, try things and so on.
    Update 15.01.2020, N8000:
    • Fixed a problem with mobile data
    • Improved GPS, but it's still not perfect
    • Another stability fix
    Only via OTA.
    New TWRP builds are up :).
    Update 14.01.2021:
    • many stability fixes in kernel
    • many net back ports to improve kernel compatibility
    • improved performance
    • fixed audio and video recording
    • fixed samsung doze
    • Volume button wakeup crash fixed
    And again, don't forget to reflash BitGapps...
