@fire_qc the simplest approach is to wait a few weeks until battery died. your tablet most likely stucks in aboot because of the downgrade protection.

My brother gave this tablet to me, after service center "tried everything" and laying around for months. He was beeing told unable to flash via Odin.

I just flashed latest available ROM and he was very surprised. Only problem is locked bootloader now

... did service center even open the housing and short-circuit test point? if so, i am very interested where these test points located for this tablet
True, we don't know what the service centre did, whether they knew where the test pins are on this particular device, etc. Perhaps they didn't know / didn't bother to check thoroughly.

It would be good to know just what its status really was! And if the mainboard really was dead, how it got that way.

Hey guys, can anyone compile an updated version for SM-T555 (gt510lte) please?
3.3.1 is available at


There's no real world benefit past 3.3.1 for just updating/flashing your custom rom.

Install twrp2.8 first, then the new versions!
2. heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img --no-reboot
2.1 Extract the files from lineage-18.1-20210424-UNOFFICIAL-gt510lte.zip:

Here the steps for the installation of the Lineage OS 18.1 on SM-T555 (gt510lte).
The easier way it to install TWRP 3.3.1, then install LineageOS 18.1 using TWRP 3.3.1. Its the "common" way to install LineageOS and likely to be more successful for all types of users.

@Schaagi already done the above at


Older versions of TWRP can't read the device name correctly or not coded to read the device name so it's returned back to the LineageOS updater script as a blank value.

Blank value != SM-T555 so updater-script will fail and not flash rom.

Older versions of TWRP can be made to bypass this safety feature by removing the assert statements in the updater-script.

Because the above TWRP 3.3.1 has a too big size, it's not working on the T555. That's the reason why I have recompiled it. Now the size is about 14 MB and can be installed on the tablet now.

I did not know that since I don't own the T555. I wonder why it would be released if the image size is too big to fit on the partition?

hey im trying to completely wipe my tablet (sm-t350, 7.1.1, build # T350XXU1CQJ5) because it just started acting like trash. ive been running speed tests and i consistently get under 50mbps with 600mbps wifi (all other device work great). anyways i think i got some virus or something idek lol. but ive factory reset with no improvement. i ended up flashing a stock rom thinking it was going to wipe clean the device from all data and the old OS but ive discovered that is not the case as my old apps were still there. So i looked into it and it seems i need to use TWRP to wipe the device? I dont even want any new android os. I'm totally fine with 7.1.1 because id rather it be stable and no negative affects on battey or apps or whatever. but im pretty confused what exactly i should be using to achieve this. im seeing things about downgrading to MM before going back to 7.1.1. Would that apply to me for twrp to work? if so, anyone willing to point me in the direction for the MM rom and the correct twrp download?

TWRP 3.1.0-0 Released
Mar 10, 2017

https://twrp.me/site/update/2017/03/10/twrp-3.1.0-0-released.html

Below you will find my builds of TWRP custom recovery for the Tab A. Latest build is 3.1.0-1

I have updated SM-T350/355 and SM-T550/T555 to TWRP v3.1.0-1.

Disclaimer: you flash these at your own risk. Knox counter will be tripped. Having the stock firmware to hand is also advised.

Update 13/3/2017: New TWRP 3.1.0-1 build for Marshmallow. Reboot to recovery loop, finally fixed!

Update: New TWRP 3.0.2-1 build for Marshmallow. Touch issues now properly fixed.



Instructions:
Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
Uncheck Auto reboot.
Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.
After flashing immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding the other buttons.
You should now see TWRP recovery.
FAILURE TO IMPLICITLY FOLLOW THE ABOVE WILL RESULT IN TWRP BEING REPLACED WITH STOCK RECOVERY. I WILL NOT ENTERTAIN ANY POSTS RESULTING FROM FAILURE TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE ABOVE


NOTE: ON SOME ANDROID 5.1.1/6.0 DEVICES IT IS NECESSARY TO GO TO:
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
AND ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.

LOLLIPOP:
TWRP 2.8.7.0

if you are loading the stock rom, you do not need twrp
You can use ODIN Tool to flash the stock ROM

i've been looking on here just now and it's been a while and i'm confused.
would one of these ODIN be what i want? :


is so, which one would you suggest for my device?
and lastly, can you link me a stock rom for either a 7.1.1 or even a 6.x? idc at this point which (just whatever is most trustworthy) i just want to see if it improves the device.

thanks for the reply though. i randomly used my throwaway email today and saw you responded recently

Odin version doesn't matter, anyways I use 3.13.1

The stock version which I pick is from here

You can use the tool from here for faster download

ok last question (well two).

1. does the SM-P555 work the same for my SM-T350 ?
2. i looked up the sm-t350 on that sam site and they only have it for paid members. any other sites you can think of i should check out instead?

thanks again. wish i could give you more than a thumbs up!

edit: ok im in the process of installing it. i actually remember doing this last time (i remember odin after seeing the program) but ill see how it goes. otherwiise might just try a non-stock somone mentioned to me earlier on this thread


edit2: well. no luck. once again it didnt completely wipe the device. the apps are all still there. guess will have to try a cracked rom as last resort
