Download

Download GApps
  • OpenGApps
    Do not use Stock or higher. Nano is recommended.

Download SuperSU


Prerequisites
  • TWRP 2.8.6.2 or higher. I always use @ashyx newest builds (TWRP builds by @ashyx)
  • Applied bootloader update, e.g. by
    • flashing the stock 5.0(or higher) samsung rom or
    • by applying bootloader directly with odin (Link).
Don't skip this step! If the incorrect bootloader is used your device WILL NOT BOOT!


Already running AOSP Marshmallow
Are you already running AOSP Marshmallow? Awesome! :good:
At the moment dirty flashing this ROM on top of AOSP Marshmallow has not yet tested.
So please create a backup of it first and install AOSP Nougat as a clean install.
Dirty flashing of AOSP Nougat on an existing installation of AOSP Marshmallow will be supported in a few days.


Instructions
  1. Cleaning System
    Reboot into recovery. Go into wipe menu. Select "Advanced Wipe". Check
    • Dalvik Cache
    • System
    • Cache
    • Data
    and wipe them. Don't reboot just yet.
    This step is only necessary on the initla installation.
  2. Install this ROM
    Go into Install
    Flash aosp-XXX.zip
    On initial installation it is necessary to Reboot to Recovery. Don't skip this step!
    (E:unknown command [log] messages can be ignored.)
  3. Install Google Apps and SuperSU
    Go into Install
    Flash GAPPS.zip
    Flash SuperSU.zip
    Reboot to System

    [*] Fix Google Apps SetupWizard Bug
    As soon as the SetupWizard is display don't press any key but execute the following command on you pc using adb
    > adb shell pm grant com.google.android.setupwizard android.permission.READ_CONTACTS
    > adb shell pm grant com.google.android.setupwizard android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS
    > adb shell pm grant com.google.android.setupwizard android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION
    This is only a temporary workaround, hopefully this issue will be solved soon.

  4. OpenDelta - OTA support
    Check Settings->System Updates (Creates /sdcard/OpenDelta/FlashAfterUpdate)
    Copy SuperSu and Gapps zip to /sdcard/OpenDelta/FlashAfterUpdate (If directory does not exist, create) so that they are automatically applied after OTA update. Else your system will be unusable after an OTA!

Working
  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth
  • HW Video Accel
  • DRM
  • Camera
  • Fingerprint
  • Basically everything that is not mentioned in the open issues list below...


Issues
  • Graphical glitches on rotation and screen off
  • RIL, meaning no telephony support so far

Notes
  • Exchange services have been dropped by google. You will have to use a third party app for Exchange syncing.

Tips'N'Tricks
  • Hearthstone and serveral other Unity games: Enable 4x MSAA in development options else it won't work
  • Slither.io and a few other games don't run if 4x MSAA is enabled: Disabled 4x MSAA in development options else it won't work
  • If you install Gapps after the ROM has been booted for the first time you either need to wipe data or manually delete /data/system/users/0/runtime-permissions.xml and reboot. Without this Gapps will crash constantly. This is due to the new permissions-system in M.

Code:

 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I will not accept responsibility for any adverse effects to your device,
 * including, but not limited to: bricking, dead SD card, bootloops etc.
 *
 * You mod your device at your own risk.

For the other tabs this rom will be available today or soon? T805 almost the same as t800 so it won't take long I think :)

Installing the suggested nano package gives this error while flashing the Gapps: *** Incompatible Android ROM detected ***
It says the ROM version is 4.4.4.

edit: nvm, a reboot to recovery allowed me to install the Gapps package. However now I can't seem to get through the setup wizard. It never finds wifi connections (fixed, need to allow the device to use locations), and even if I skip, the settings app keeps crashing and start that wizard from zero, in a loop.

Anyone manage to make it through the initial wizard?

This is good had been waiting for this.......:)

Also if you could please confirm does "RIL, meaning no telephony support so far" means no Sim Data connectivity / No LTE data?

Great work and a nice surprise to see this so soon, where is the link for the t800? I will test it out a while but will prolly go back to my 6.0 resurrection as I hate the white backgrounds of stock android.

Did anyone manage to get past the initial setup wizard?

Problem is, how can I flash back the 6.0 build? Or any other build, how can I get the rom file on the tablet now that it won't boot to system? It won't be recognized as MTP when plugging it to the pc via USB.

you should have a backup of MM6 tgo be able to restore with TWRP and read if other people were successful before installing .....
