That's pointless, then you can ditch the whole tablet because EVERYTHING is obsolete by todays standards. The screen is low resolution, battery is awfully slow to charge, headphone DAC is full of noise, processor is ancient and makes everything slow, etc etc. To ditch features is not the point of this community, it is to make new software adapt to the old hardware so we can use it again.

I used the front camera a lot last year and this one taking college classes via Zoom. It's the only tablet I have, don't want to buy another one and make electronic waste when I know it's perfectly capable of doing things like Zoom, even if the other people can't see the details of my ugly face.


Ps: I say all of this to try boost morale, with total respect for the devs. I wish I can help more but I'm a noob, I do what I can but bug hunting takes me weeks, even for something simple like the bt bug I worked on. I will be helping with what I can but please, don't make this another "just web browsing" kind of release...
I can understand you. My situation was same last year but not so bad. Good thing my parents bought me a laptop this year for my school's, tuitions

And yes, we would be working on the stability issues and camera by using the 3.0.101 kernel on the Tab 2 with oreo. The only issue is that @Mighty have a weak laptop that almost cannot build roms. We have to ask for help from developers like @html6405, which as they have a lot of devices to maintain, won't be the fastest update speed.
Cameras are very unlikely, if @html6405 manages to get 3.0 kernel working with oreo there is some chance, but with 3.4 kernel its a no.
BTW, I'm already having a booting 3.0.101 Kernel with working OTG, dock keyboard and many more functions.
It's still unstable, because there are many other commits and backports to do.

I've fixed the camera hal partly, so that it's buildable, but the camera doesn't work so far (I think it's a hal problem),
also, I've found a partly RIL fix, but at the moment only the BASEBAND is known.

Because of other ROM updates, I think will proceed in november with this...

I'm using slim7. Never tired RR rom. Is it better than slim7 in overall performance?
Should I downgrade?

@Mighty is having problems with building the rom due to a weak laptop
If they are interested, they can use my computer to build roms.

Send me a DM or something so we can get going. I have no experience building android roms, but I have enough experience building web apps to automate it, with your help, so you can just upload the sources and get a build done by my hardware. Hopefully the delay of uploading the entire source code and downloading the artifacts is less than the time you save.

Also some updates coz I was gone for a long time, been testing new build and it works with gapps as well (while prev ones used to crash) but im facing a lot of freezes due to running out of ram :(
Even happens without gapps sadly

New Update for espresso3g!
Updated lowmemorykiller
We are using 64 bit binder, instead of 32 bit binder (which was for android 4.4)
Fixed wifi, no more patches needed!
Removed zram as it was causing freezes
You can install apks more than 100mb now
The build is ported to espressowifi. Post #175 is updated.
Thank you @Mighty for the stability fix. It is not until now for the tablet can be meant to be used as a daily driver.

As one may argue, in fact yes you can use zoom, but you have to say that your webcam is broken to your teacher or manager, with a stable OS that zoom (100MB+) can run on.

I mean, only few teachers insist one to show their face in zoom lessons, does they?

I know that many people need cameras but it's something I cannot fix, cameras are handled by the 2x Cortex M3 cores which are handled by a proprietary blob given by TI. The original was for 3.0 kernel which had camera support but the one for 3.4 kernel doesn't, ig we can ask TI for some solution but idk
