Link to download the SLim 7 firmware?
I recommended to use the file from Andi

Read my post #449 Page 23. I had a problem on my P5100 with high CPU idle load and I observed that the reason was the rild process.

The Slim7 ROM is working nice and stable. I use the tablet only to watch videos on prime video or Disney...

To run some video services you must install some magisk modules before otherwise you will get an error message.

    Important notes:
    Why does the initial boot take so long?!
    - I had to sacrifice dexpreopt because of wifi issues while it was enabled. This can result in pretty long initial boots or upgrade boots, and dexpreopt might run during the first time setup wizard as well, slowing down the system for an additional couple minutes. I also suggest to wait some minutes before running the SetupWizard if you use Gapps.

    My RIL doesn't work, i don't get mobile data!
    Sorry guys, some of you tried to force me to release Nougat Roms (and here we are) even if i haven't solved known bugs like RIL issues. Source is open for everyone, feel free to fix it yourself.

    Well, yeah there have been many requests and ETAs via XDA and email... Guess those things nev we change...

    I've had to spend time I've currently not have to get the builds done. One whole day (from morning to night was needed to patch the ROM Source, also countless hours the days before to setup everything again...)

    If one likes to say "Thanks":
    - simply hit the Thanks-Button
    - you can help to make my stepdaughter happy by a donation:
    I am currently saving money to buy a new sandpit for her as all playgrounds are currently closed and our current sandpit is broken everywhere...

    All my Android 7 ROMs are ROM side up to date with April 2020 Security bulletin. No need to mention that 3.0 kernel is out of date and also some closed source parts could still contain security holes - it's an old device.
    But latest ROMs should be the safest available for our devices.

    Have a good time everyone! I hope you enjoy the new builds!

    Screenshots for screamer
    Maybe there'll be a new build later today

    Builds uploaded! Enjoy!
    Hello Andi,

    please don´t forget all the users which are very happy about your great work. Most of us do not write because it seems not to be necessary, or just write for helping to find bugs.

    Sure, I don't forget about them - that's why I still release security updates for 4.4 and 6.0 ROMs which work fine
