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.
    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!
    Hello Everyone & a HUGE, Big, Big Thank You to @html6405 ,

    Awesome work my friend! I hadn't upgraded this tablet since Nougat 7. The thread I was in here at XDA where Don Carnage had been posting ROM's but there was no further updates for the GT-N8013 for a long time. I thought Nougat was the last ROM for this device until I stumbled into this thread.

    After seven years of rooting, flashing, testing/troubleshooting Roms for the LG G2 running Android 11...WOW! "a Big Thank You to @aleasto " and also the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013, I could not pass up a great deal on a new Samsung S21+ (Verizon). So I am the proud owner of the Phantom Silver model. So far the phone is awesome. Really like it! SMOKING HOT!!! :cool:

    My intent when getting this new phone was to enjoy it for a while and take a break from seven years of rooting, flashing, testing/troubleshooting Roms. Looks like that is not the case. :unsure:

    So as far as the GT-N8013 and Android 11, Coming from Android Nougat 7 anf flashing the lineage-18.1-20210715-HTML6405-n8010 (N8013) it seems to be running well.


    * GT-N8013
    * lineage-18.1-20210715-HTML6405-n8010
    * BiTGApps-arm-11.0.0-R17_signed
    * TWRP to 3.5.2_9-1
    * Magisk 23.0 (23000) (21)
    * Does Not Pass Safetynet - fail (Response payload validation failed)


    In TWRP Recovery - Wipe > Advance Wipe >


    * Davlik / ART Cache
    * Cache
    * System
    * Vendor
    * Data


    * lineage-18.1-20210715-HTML6405-n8010 (works for the N8013 as well)
    * BiTGApps-arm-11.0.0-R17_signed

    * Rebooted and did initial setup (y)


    * Rebooted to Recovery
    * Flashed
    * Rebooted System and updated the Magisk App to 23.0 (23000) (21)
    * Installed BusyBox - Install failed.

    Error Message - "It looks like the installation of busy box was not successful. Try installing to a different location, that may resolve the issue."

    If your BusyBox installation fails, use this method:

    Close that Error Message

    Run BusyBox again

    Where it says "BusyBox will be installed to" Tap on " /system/bin " select "Custom Path" and change path to " /data " and Tap Install. BusyBox installed successfully.

    * Install & Run Root Checker - Result: ROOTED (y) 😊
    I read your post on Page 1 where you said to download BitGapps Directly (from the link you provided), that is why I downloaded BitGapps. LOL!
    Sorry, but when I've published this ROM, there were only BitGapps available, so we had no other choice.
    * Screen was doing all kinds of crazy stuff. thought it might be related to video/graphics drivers or even a hardware issue but all of a sudden appeared after installing the latest ROM. screen was going blank and colors would appear with lines all over and was unusable. then the screen started to look like it was failing. It looked like it was burning. (See picture 1)
    This is the screen lightning bug, I was not able to eliminate it in the driver so far.
    * While trying t o transfer files to the tablet from a Windows 10 computer I would see multiple versions of the storage drives (see picture 2)
    This is crazy and not the case on my PC with my devices.
    Essentially as you can see the N8013 and this latest ROM was unusable with many issues so I reverted back to my Lineage Nougat ROM and all works well and no video / screen issues.
    Thanks for testing, but this ROM is still in alpha stage and I do not recommend it for a daily use,
    LOS 16.0 is already stable ;).
    Does they work on lineage 16.0?
    If yes then software bug only
    What do you mean? Open gapps? They are also working on LOS 18.1, we all are using them.

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * 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 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.

    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...
