Don't know if this is new or not, but I am trying to connect to the tablet via Kies and SmartSwitch to migrate my mother's 7" T210R to the P5210, and it just won't do it. Both applications in OS X just say "Connecting". Left both for over 30 minutes each.
I would think that since this rom is Cyanogenmod, that it wouldn't connect to kies.

First would like to thank you nels83 for the great ROM. Everything is running smoother and so much nicer look for my older tablet.

Flitz01 asked if the charging is slower on this ROM and for me it takes forever to charge. Once it got stuck charging 50% and after hour it said fully charged (actually it was 50% charged). Maybe it's not fast charging while using, but charging overnight is 100%. Cleared cache and dalvik cache, no change.

Kies is only for Samsung Firmwares. Even if you port the .apk files. It will maybe not work, because the Samsung Firmware is diffrent compared to vanilla Android.

TWRP v2 v3

Greetings:

First off, great job! I had just about given up hope in my 5210. You've made my tablet usable for the first time.

Just a question regarding the v2 and v3 versions of TWRP. When I flash them, is it supposed to indicate that it's v2 or 3?

I ask because I get no option to format f2fs after attempting to flash both of the newer versions with Odin.

Thanks Again!

you did a recovery reboot? no there is not a indicator..
did you look on the right spot? wipe > tick data > repair or change file system > change file system > f2fs

That is what I figured. Ah well. did it manually.
@nels83

I noticed some new weird behaviour with the SD Card. I have a 64GB card, and when I removed it, and put it back in, the tablet refused to mount it again. searched, and had to wipe Dalvik/Cache in order to get it to mount. Tried 4 times to make sure it wasn't a one off.

GUIDE FOR CONVERTING TO F2FS:

This will delete ALL files/data from your tab.

What you will need: A working PC and a working USB cable.

1. Install the most recent Recovery:
Download the most recent Recovery from the second post. Flash the zip file in recovery. Back in the main menu press Reboot > Recovery

2. Format Data and Cache to F2FS:
Wipe > choose Cache > repair or change file system > change file system > F2FS > Swipe to Confirm
Go back and repeat the same steps with Data. I got some error messages when formatting Data but they don't seem to be a problem.
Back in the main menu press Reboot > Recovery

3. Install Rom + Houdini + Gapps:
Connect your tab to your PC and copy the zip files on the tab.
Flash the files, reboot and enjoy :good:

How to get back to EXT4:
You will again loose all files/data on the tab.
Just repeat Step 2 but use EXT4 instead of F2FS.

No, kies is only for stick Sammy firmware, I guess I can't say for sure bcuz I've only used it once, but I don't think ull get any functionality out of kids on any other ROM, I misread ur comment and thought u said that since it was cm it would connect to kies

I was just going to ask the same thing. As I have it on my S4 on CM12.1 but didn't really see much benefit, they also say it's battery saving. I just did cache on my Tab 3 for now so I didn't loose data.

You get faster read/write speeds so a faster snappier UI. i don't think it saves battery but correct me if i'm wrong :)
Also don't expect wonders from it it wont build a snapdragon 815 in your tab but in my opinion the speed boost is noticeable :)

@nels83

Is there anyway to recalibrate the touchscreen? I did my second f2fs conversion, and for some reason the touchscreen timing is WAY off. Press and hold rarely works, and typing fast is out of the question. Any suggestions? The weird thing is that it worked fine on my first one, and in TWRP. It was also fine before I switched over to f2fs.

...Flitz01 asked if the charging is slower on this ROM and for me it takes forever to charge....

Do you charge over USB ? My device goes from 20% to 100% in about 2 hours on AC but it takes a veeeery long time when on USB.

What broswer should i use for flash?

Firefox works good here.

I noticed some new weird behaviour with the SD Card. I have a 64GB card, and when I removed it, and put it back in, the tablet refused to mount it again...

Can you send a logcat ?

Probably a stupid question to most, but If the HW audio encoding/decoding is not working will i be able to cast media to a chromecast or similar

Absolutely. HW audio decoding helps with CPU and battery only.

That's weird indeed. Even after a full wipe ? Maybe you can try to format again (media and cache).

    Unofficial CyanogenMod 12.1 for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1

    CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 5.1 (Lollipop), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:

     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, ...
     * You flash this at your own risks
     */

    About CM

    CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    [OPTIONAL] Converting filesystem to F2FS (thanks @michiil)

    The ROM has F2FS support. You may want to use it instead of the default (EXT4).

    This will delete ALL files/data from your tab.

    What you will need: A working PC and a working USB cable.

    1. Install the most recent Recovery
      Download the most recent Recovery from the second post. Flash the zip file in recovery. Back in the main menu press Reboot > Recovery
    2. Format Data and Cache to F2FS
      Wipe > choose Cache > repair or change file system > change file system > F2FS > Swipe to Confirm
      Go back and repeat the same steps with Data. I got some error messages when formatting Data but they don't seem to be a problem.
      Back in the main menu press Reboot > Recovery
    3. Install Rom + Houdini + Gapps
      Connect your tab to your PC and copy the zip files on the tab.
      Flash the files, reboot and enjoy :good:

    How to get back to EXT4

    You will again loose all files/data on the tab.
    Just repeat Step 2 but use EXT4 instead of F2FS.

    What's working

    • RIL for P5200 (data, SMS/MMS, calls)
    • GPS
    • 2D/3D acceleration
    • HW video encoding/decoding
    • Screen cast (miracast)
    • Sound
    • InfraRed
    • Camera
    • Wifi
    • Bluetooth
    • Sensors (and automatic brightness)
    • Smart cover lock/unlock
    • Multiuser
    • SDCard, USB OTG
    • Tethering (USB, Bluetooth, Wifi)
    • F2FS and exFAT

    What's not working

    • Chromecast
    • RIL (for P5220)
    • MHL
    • Secure videos/DRM (Widevine, Google Play Movies...)
    • HW audio decoding
    • SELinux (disabled)
    • You tell me

    How to root

    • Go to 'Settings/About tablet'
    • Tap 7 times on 'Build number'
    • Go back
    • Go to 'Developer options'
    • Tap on 'Root access'
    • Select 'Apps only' ('Apps and ADB' if you plan to use it in adb shell)

    How to help

    When something is not working correctly, in addition to common informations, I may ask you to provide logs. There are different kind of logs and it's not always easy to get all of them. For this, you can use SysLog (available on F-Droid or Google Play.

    There is currently a bug in the app. Download it from AndroidFileHost. Use this patch if you want to compile it yourself:

    Code:
    diff --git a/app/src/main/java/com/tortel/syslog/utils/Utils.java b/app/src/main/java/com/tortel/syslog/utils/Utils.java
    index 40d41b8..80ae55c 100644
    --- a/app/src/main/java/com/tortel/syslog/utils/Utils.java
    +++ b/app/src/main/java/com/tortel/syslog/utils/Utils.java
    @@ -144,7 +144,7 @@ public class Utils {
     
                 Log.v(TAG, "Path: "+path);
                 //Make the directory
    -            if(!outPath.mkdirs() && !outPath.isDirectory()){
    +            if(!outPath.mkdirs() || !outPath.isDirectory()){
                     throw new CreateFolderException();
                 }
    Make sure to root device before using this app.

    To get the logs:
    • Start SysLog
    • Click on 'TAKE LOG'
    • Once log is taken, SysLog will try to share the resulting file, just cancel
    • Send me the file /sdcard/SysLog/[YYYY-MM-DD_HH.mm]/[YYYY-MM-DD_HH.mm].zip

    If you left 'Scrub potentially personal information from the logs' checked, you should be safe.

    Note
    There is currently a bug with HW video decoding/encoding: you can't have both. By default, the ROM provides HW video encoding but partial HW video decoding.
    If you want full HW video decoding, you can flash hw_decode.zip (you will however loose HW video encoding).
    Fixed in alpha 11.

    A bug appeared in Alpha 13 causing voice calls (in P5200) to be muted. It will be fixed in Beta 2. In the meantime, you can flash audio_test3.zip after flashing the ROM. Fixed in beta 2.

    Beta 3

    Hi there,

    Beta 3 is here. GPS is finally working and F2FS has been updated (hope it will fix the problems some of you had). CM has also been updated so a bunch of security fixes are included.
    I also updated the video corruption fix so if you have any green bars please tell me.

    I'm still investigating MHL and BLN support but have very limited free time...

    Happy flashing ;)
    20
    Alpha 13

    Alpha 13 uploaded (based on the stable branch of CM12.1, it will help finding device specific bugs)

    Sorry guys, still no beta... and only one fix.
    However I added KeyDisabler, it lets you disable the capacitive keys and enable the navbar (in Buttons settings).
    Also added is CABC (in Display settings).

    Development is slowed down (again...) but I'm not giving up. I'm currently working on a clean TWRP version (almost done ;)).

    Thanks again for all the reports !

    Happy flashing
