Just flashed this and super impressed, I can't seem to get back into TWRP though. (I want to flash su & gapps) tried flashing it via adb but nothing happens. Does anyone have any advice? I don't want to carry on messing around with it incase I end up bricking it. Thanks
Have you solved this? If not, follow this guide here on the old lineage pages. Go for the chapter "Installing a custom recovery using fastboot"
Good luck

I cannot install drivers on a win10 64bit computer. I'm about to go crazy because I've been trying to do this for days. The computer definitely does not see the tablet. I have read almost all the threads on XDA. Nothing worked please help me.

as always here in the forums: what are you trying to install? are you getting error messages while installing? what are they?
Apart from that: any chance to try using a Linux machine? Highly recommended as you don't need drivers in the first place. Just install adb and fastboot and off you go

Hello, my lovely old Tablet Z is still amazing hardware, but unfortunately some apps need are no longer supported.

So I'm trying to update it. I've never worked with custom ROMs, but I have expirience with ADB and Samsung/LG recoveryies.

Looking at the main page I see I will probably have some problems, so let me ask few questions before I start the bricking attemps...

1) It is the original Android it came - 4.1.2. I see TWRP 3.2.1 is not compatible with Android 5, 5.1
Does this mean I need an earlier version? Then update the Android, and again TWRP probably?

2) What ist the difference between windy and the standard package? Or I need both installed as mentioned in the above post.

3) Is the custm HW of the Tablet Z supported? I didn't see the IR blaster nor the dock port mentioned.

Thanks and love you for still supporting the great device!

Hello!

1. Latest TWRP don't work with stock firmwares. You'll have to unlock bootloader, and install TWRP first, then install custom ROM.
2. Pollux=SGP321, Pollux_windy=SGP311/312.
3. Not all features (including IR) are supported and work.

Hi,
I have a few bugs with september and december 2020 builds (I use Magisk 22 and F2FS for cache) :

- MTP doesn't work
- Data/LTE doesn't work
- Developer options are not accessible

Anyone has these problems ?
