Thanks for replying, I guess I could be have never done it before, could you point me to a good tutorial or how-to please?

Lineage includes a step-by-step guide for supported devices. The process is nearly the same for the SM-P550, you just have to download the files for your device manually to the sources. Then build the P550 instead of the one listed in the guide and you're good to go.

This build is designed for the Wifi-only variant (SM-T550) but it will flash and boot on the LTE variant (SM-T555), your tablet will act like a wifi only tablet so you will not have calling, texting, mobile data. In the future, I may make a SM-T555 build that has working telephony but probably not due to me not having one.

What's working:
Wifi
Bluetooth
Sensors
Video
Offline charging
Hardware buttons

What's broken:
GPS is flaky
Camera
Audio

Changelog:
4/18/18
Initial release

When will be release LOS 16 for this device (SM-T555) and the TWRP for the LOS16? Thanks.

The system is slow and unstable, crashing. Need long time for booting.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1.2 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
     *
     */

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    First time flashing LineageOS 14.1 on your device, or coming from another ROM?

    I'm working in order to keep this device alive, too.
    Oreo works and the camera is working in my testbuilds, except for some grainy previews in the camera app.
    I'll release a build when the speakers are working. Headphones are working already.
    Stay tuned :)

    @hellcat50Please deadman fix the audio!

    There is no need to fix the audio. It's already fixed.
    If it's still not fixed here next week, I'll publish a LineageOS Oreo build with audio.
    Deadman's last build has over 600 downloads, apparently there are still people who believe in this great tablet.

    Just to make some progress..

    Audio is working now. Feel free to use my vendor & device tree here @deadman96385. There are still some camera related issues, for instance the bad preview in the stock camera app. Using a different camera app solved this issue for me. Since deadman already supports Lineage OS, I'll build & support AICP. Android Oreo works on the tablet, I hope deadman will switch to the newest version of android soon. If there's some time in the next month I'll try to fix the remaining issues (the camera and SELinux permissive). Maybe I have time to build a SM-T555 version, too. But I don't own this type of tablet, so I would definitely need some testers.
