Here my review with a GTN5100 and the latest ROM from today:
  • Very smooth experience bringing fresh and new life to my trusted device
  • WIFI working out of the box
  • Pairing of a bluetooth headset worked. Tests needed on microphone and sound quality. This was always an issue with other ROMs for the device
  • LTE not recognized. when starting any app related to mobile data or phone I get a crash of com.android.phone. SW gets unresponsive and needs to be closed. Some restarts did not do the trick. Mobile data was working on other ROMs before.
  • SPencommand did not start. SW was compatible up to Oreo based on the website. Still digitizer i able to work with the pen as a pointing device.
  • I can only applaud the developer 👏. This is fantastic and with /e/ being the basis I do not need to do all the MicroG and other steps in setup myself.
Please let me know, where I can help for the 5100
which gaaps can we choice Arm or Arm 64??

Question to palm rejection: I am fine with the general use of SPen on any lineage based devices. With this ROM I like, that I can switch on the pointer. What about palm rejection? The biggest issue for me is hitting accidentally the back or menu button. Any setting/ app/magisk plug-in to improve or even customize the behavior?

Hmm good question, the softkey's are ment to be enabled while using the pen.
I think they do not see any difference hardware related if you press it with your finger or the pen,
so I see no software way to create a palm rejection for them.

Yes, it works, with working meaning it works as a pointer and it can be used e.g to scribble notes in Nebo or for drawing.

in regards to palm rejection - hitting accidentally the „back“ button is annoying. Therefore I often use the Tablet in landscape mode when drawing or scribbling. Never mind, probably there are „ bigger fish’s to fry“

    Hi,

    here you can find my first versions for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 on /e/.

    I'm actually in the middle of making it official, but at first I have to solve some remaining problems.

    For all people, who doesnt know what /e/ should be,
    just take a look here:


    Here you can see how far everything is working:

    Boot
    Audio
    Bluetooth
    Graphics
    Cameras
    Sensors
    Wifi
    USB
    Video playback (HW/SW)
    RIL
    GPS, 3D fix doesn't work, but navigation seems to work fine in my case.
    Tethering via USB, WIFI and Bluetooth
    consumerir transmitter
    • Bliss launcher won't rotate your screen, so I've included trebuchet from lineageos, only for testing
    Do you like my work?
    Than you can simply hit the thanks button and consider to spend me a coffee or a beer,
    I'm doing this in my free time and it also costs a lot of money to buy hardware.

    You could use a gps.conf from https://app.box.com/s/w57s1v1n3hie7l5lk28i for your location and replace /system/etc/gps.conf.
    Or you try GPS Server Optimizer app for a faster 3D fix.
    For both methods you need root rights.

    I have not been able to download the file n5110 the download is interrupted in a certain time, I thought it was my internet service and I tried to download from my cell phone with my data plan and the same thing happens. :(
    Hi,
    I'm facing the same problem when I try to download, I will upload it to AFH later,
    somehow the xda server seems to have a problem.
