ALL

The ROM is still in pre-nightly and by flashing it you are helping the pre-nightly Testing process ;)

It may still have some bugs, spontaneously reboot, drain the battery faster or heat up a bit. The aim is to make it better and fix them.

If you find a bug and want to report it here please post a logcat (after it occurred) with a description of what you were doing at the time and the rough timing in the logcat to look at (these things get huge!).

You can also post a dmesg which is the kernel boot logs and can indicate issues with data corruption or hardware.

If you get a reboot then please post a last_kmsg from the /proc folder.

Twrp will format your old ROM anyway so no, you can't flash the enforced ROM over the existing one. Just do a dalvick / cache wipe and flash. It will be a clean install but you will still have all of your files in the Tab's internal memory. Gapps should restore all of your previously installed apps and settings.

Hi guys,
I have a stupid question: I have TWRP 2.8.1 and i have already 5.1.1 (it was flashed with out any issue).
The question is - is it OK to stay on this TWRP or i will have a problems and better to update?
And the second: is it ok to flash from 2.8.1 to 2.8.6 via fastboot? (on the original site it is info that i have to update through 2.8.4, but where to obtain 2.8.4 for me301?)

all my apps and such are backed up with Titanium anyway so will just install that app and go from there

I would test the water. never restore /system apps, and if you have issue after a restore...

Then you will have to download new from the play store .....

Thx Josh

Anything above 2.8.x.x will work.....

If you want to upgrade to the newest, yes fastboot will work .....

If you hold of I am going to be releasing a KANG version of my TWRP....

Thx Josh

For those people that are looking for GApps and like the aroma installer, take a look at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3010798

[GAPPS][5.0/5.1][AROMA] LP-GAPPS [May, 15 2015]

I am using these on the tf300t. Sometimes the aroma installer hangs a bit, but presentatie the screen helps.

Right now i'm using bANKS gapps but i will try these too eventually.
Today i tried 5.1 minimal and i got errors right at the startup.
Thanks for the heads-up!

Very odd...I could not add a Google account with BaNkS or Aroma-LP, but 5.1 minimal worked.

Well in my case with banks it felt like i bought the tablet with lollipop pre-installed by asus, everything went smooth just like when i first turned on the tablet. With minimal on the other hand i couldn't get past language selection screen. Some ".com process stopped working" pop-up kept showing on the screen. Tried to wipe cache and stuff but it proved to be a no-go.

Fantastic thank you

Wow, this is great. I've applied it to my ME301T which has CWM recovery and it works great.

My camera didn't work with OmniROM 4.4.4 it crashed my tablet but EVERYTHING is working brilliantly with this ROM.

Great work. Well done.

    The graphic distortion and perhaps the BT problems are caused by an upstream change (kernel build related) and there is a new build uploaded that should resolve the problems.

    I will make another build this weekend with the latest changes.
