I'm attempting to install via Heimdall on Ubuntu. Yours is the second ROM I've tried to install and I'm running into the same problem: The recovery install "succeeds" according to Heimdall, but the device then circles back into a fake version of download mode with the error "recovery: Error validating footer (6)".

That's the best result. I get it when flashing your recovery, and I get it when flashing (some) TWRP recoveries directly. Others, including a supposedly "stock" recovery and one from LineageOS 17, fail on flash.

The bootloader is unlocked, USB debugging enabled, all that jazz. I don't understand why this is happening. Any guidance would be appreciated.

I am getting an error that the firmware file you're trying to flash is binary or bit 4, device current firmware is bit 5. You need to find firmware with bit 5 in order for the flash to go through. What should I do?

You can`t do nothing with it. Magedanz need to rebuild or set another bulid which will be based on kernel of T510XXS5BUC4 or something like that.

@Magendanz, can you rebuild or build that ROM on the kernel of stock ROM which has bootloader number 5? Or you leave development of A10 Nexus Stock?

As i noticed, Nexus10 ROM by you is more stable and haven`t big bugs unlike as your Nexus11 ROM, really? If it`s true, I think many users which were updating on stock A11 will be grateful if you take this N10 ROM on bootloader 5 and we can go to downgrade to A10 and then install N10....

I'll take a look at updating with a more recent OEM firmware release over the weekend, but I will be dropping support for this as soon as AOSP12 and CAOS12 GSI releases begin.

Okay, so it turns out that the T510XXU5CUF4 OEM firmware release is an Android 11 kernel and it won't run any of the Android 10 GSIs. I tried both CAOS and LineageOS, and they wouldn't boot. Everything based on AOSP11, however, is still chugging along fine.

Might be time to put this one out to pasture, folks. :-(

Very sad news for community. I hope you will grind your NStock11 ROM and it will work really cool. But thanks for your attempts to adapt NStock10 on U5 kernel)

    Well, we're finally getting some relatively stable builds of AOSP GSIs and OpenGApps for Android 10.0, so here's my first effort at migrating the Nexus Stock custom ROM for the 2019 Galaxy Tab A 10.0 [SM-T510] to the latest Android OS release. It's very much a work in progress, but it should hopefully help blaze the trail for even better work.

    Notes:
    • The current process may require you to reset to factory defaults to remove file-based encryption. Remember to backup your data!
    • Custom kernels are specific to OEM releases, and this one is based on the October 2020 Update (T510XXU4BUA1) for the SM-T510.
    • The new release is based on @eremitein's CAOS 10.0 GSI (CQ), which is an extremely lightweight set of tweaks to AOSP.
    • Previous releases were based on @AndyYan's LineageOS 17.1 GSI (LQ) or @phhusson's AOSP 10.0 (AQ).
    • Includes common set of Google apps from the latest Stock variant from OpenGApps.
    • Boot logo and default wallpaper is from my Nexus series of custom ROMs for Android TV, and I'm using the Pixel boot animation with black background.
    • Stock recovery will be replaced with my latest TWRP build for the SM-T510.
    • I've dialed back most of scary bootloader warnings and Knox Security branding from the boot sequence.
    • The properties now correctly identify the device as a tablet, and so the Google Dialer and Messenger are no longer installed. I've also disabled the Emergency button, but SetupWizard still insists on reminding you to insert a SIM (sigh!).
    • This is unofficial and unsupported, so the usual caveats apply. Since we don't flash the bootloader, you should be able recover from any problems...but nothing is guaranteed.

    Not working:
    • Support for file-based encryption

    Here's a drop of the AQ variant for T510XXU3BTFN, the new Android 10 OEM firmware release. There is an issue right now with the custom kernel not working with the OEM system, but the Nexus builds seem to be working fine. Also, Samsung seems to have made a change in the bootloader preventing the main logo.jpg in the param.bin from being picked up, so you won't see the Nexus logo on boot. However, it is picking up the other two custom images that dial back the scary bootloader unlock warnings. Finally, the latest OpenGApps Stock variant posted is almost a month old, and there's no indication when those will return.

    This is a pretty major update, and so I'm posting it here first for early adopters. If the rollout goes smoothly, I'll update in the OP.

    Note that a clean install is required to fix Double Tap to Wake feature, since the fix is in the rw-system.sh script that only runs on first boot.
