This ROM is Beta and not ready for daily use at the moment​

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community

First I would like to thank the following developers :

I used @RaymanFX's T815 image to base my cm 13.0 build on, which in turn is the base of cm-14.1 and this lineage-14.1.

Before you start

THIS ROM IS ONLY FOR THE SM-T810

Code:
 *
 * Your warranty will be voided !
 *
 * I am 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 me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Special Thanks to @RaymanFX for releasing his Exynos 5433 source, and already patching the common sources to lineage-14.1, without him this ROM would most likely not be possible!

Wow that was fast ;)
Running awesome BTW... Thanks!
Could have posted a day sooner, but was messing with the dtb compile (@RaymanFX got it working, currently compiling to test).
I hope the solution workd for all Tab s2's with the exynos chipset. I think the T71x tabs have issues with the stock dtb/kernel combination. Would be nice to get those builds up and running again.

Awesome stuff. Will give this a flash here in a bit after I do a Odin. Just for my infos :angel: Does this have similar tweaks to CM 14.1 did or still pretty barebones at this date. Either way it won't stop me from trying it, just curious. :)

It's a rebranded cm-14.1, so expect all issues cm-14.1 had to be acailable in this build as well, until we fixed them.

Just replaced the boot.img from a failed build of yesterday with a new one with a self compiled dtb made today. The change to build the dtb killed something else, so I need to hunt that new bug down. Will update OP with link to new file when the upload finishes.

Netflix will cast fine if you have a chromecast but doesn't work locally yet. The video zoom issue is much improved - YouTube works great, prime video works, Facebook video works but still a bit buggy (videos sometimes play at half speed, sometimes need reloading to work fullscreen). ;)

Thanks for the support.

Just compiled a complete image with the new boot.img generation (incl. compiled dtb instead of stock). Updated OP. Image not yet tested, flashing as I type..

Mine is stuck on the boot screen.

Edit: I flashed the boot.img file from the 12/31 build with Odin and the 01/01 build booted fine.

Sounds great that something is happening for the Tab S2 :D However i have a T815 (LTE model), any chance it will be supported somewhere down the line? (with or without LTE support, as i rarely use it)

@RaymanFX is building the T815 sources and to be honest, doing most of the work. I mostly check of his patches don't break the T810 build. I don't know where he uploads his images.

Speaking of which, when he was debugging the T815 to locate the missing hardware decode support, he found, after a clean install, that they were used. I've compiled today and I'm now rebuilding my device, to see if graphincs have improved. When someone with netflix could test if it works after a clean flash, that would be nice.

OP updated with link to todays build.

Did a factory reset, fresh install - Netflix still can't play.

01-05 19:37:02.502 E/BufferQueueProducer(2616): [SurfaceView - com.netflix.mediaclient/com.netflix.mediaclient.ui.player.PlayerActivity] cancelBuffer: BufferQueue has no connected producer

Thanks for the efforts anyway.
