Beta 6 is here

Hello everyone, Beta 6 is here ! LOS has been updated and microphone should finally be fixed. Wifi should also work for everybody. I updated some code in the kernel and adjusted LMK and ZRAM. The device should be more stable when using Gapps and/or use memory hungry apps/games. You may experience some slowdowns however (there's no magic here, the device still has 900MB of memory...).

I'll try to answer your private messages during the week ;-)

Have a nice day and happy flashing !

I'm getting error 7 in twrp when I try to flash the wifi zip over the top of the 20210102 build.

Edit- apparently it just was an issue with the rom zip being in downloads instead of root of sd card.

Glad that you're available and keeping this up to date! I hope this fixes the Bluetooth earphone mic issue. I'll write here when there are any issues! By the way, I hope this also fixed the issue with the launcher, it has like black at the top and bottom which is annoying, I have to reinstall the launcher (first installing a third party launcher, then uninstalling the stock one and then reinstalling it again and putting it back as a system app) so the dark shade would go away. I hope this is fixed as well!

I diirty flashed it over the last build and it's working great so far. The tablet is still slow, but I guess that's just because of the low RAM.
Thanks a lot, this ROM is the only reason I still have this tablet running!

@nels83 2 bugs found, since you're active (thank God), I hope you can look into these:

These bugs aren't new, but since you're here I will put it here so hopefully you can fix them.

1. Launcher Bug:
Whenever I flash this rom, this new version and the 2019 one (I don't know about the other old ones), the launcher always has dark black shade at the top and the bottom like this picture:
tabbug1.jpg

This isn't edited! It's really like that. The only way fixing it is when I install a third-party launcher like Nova, then uninstalling this stock launcher with root and then installing it again with APKMirror and moving it back to system, then the black shades are gone. I hope you can fix this, it's pretty annoying and disturbing!

2. Errors/Notices from ADB:
When uninstalling system apps with adb, I get these:
bug2.png

These warnings look serious and like it says may be the reason of wasting memory and etc, I hope you can fix these as well. I checked it isn't from my adb software thing! I tried uninstalling something from my phone with adb and these errors didn't show up, so it's from the tab's rom. Probably some wrong codings and etc, I hope you can look into this!

@nels83 please let me know :) I hope you can fix these, and if you will let me know so I would be happy that this is going to be fixed soon!! Thanks for all your work :D

Guys,
My tab is alive again, thanks to this Rom and the dev.
However, I mainly use my tab for music and the sound does not seems to be very good.
Is there a solution or a mod to boost a little bit audio? this is quite importante for me.
Thans in advance for your help

I did install VIPER4ANDROID FX, but I cannot configure it as I used to in earlier android versions. My goal is too boost volume. Any help welcome.

Hi,

I have been using the 20210102 build without issues, and I am trying the beta6.

Everything works fine except one app that I'm trying to use (SkyDemon). The displayed elements are huge, as if it were "scaled" from a smartphone screen. The app "DisplayInfo" reports a density of 680dpi. I don't know exactly where the problem can come from (build.prop seems fine and every other app/system looks good). DisplayInfo reported 150dpi on a stock-based ROM and Skydemon display was fine then (but it wouldn't run after the first "disclaimer" screen...). Any ideas? :)

Anyways, thank you for sharing your work!
 
Hi,
It seems that magisk does not work with beta 6.
I tried a clean install as well.
Thanks a lot @nels83 for your amazing work

@nels83 please have a look at the request (it fixes magisk problem).

Beta 7

Hi everyone,

I updated the ROM with the patch from @ddudek77 (thanks!) which should fix Magisk. I also updated LOS to security patch level April 05 2021.

@SerjSX I didn't look into the launcher problem yet but the warnings are "normal". The old binaries need text relocations, even though they are deprecated.

Tablet is slow because memory is low and the low memory killer needs work. Since new android versions use another memory handler, I started looking at it. Don't expect something working in the near future but I'd really like to update this rom ;-)

Would you be interested in adding some more tweaks?

In this post there are some optimizations for build.prop:

Personally I only use low_ram and dalvik.vm.isa.x86.features


For low memory I add a swap like in this tutorial:

But I create it on /data (have enough space and feel safer if /system remains read only)

    Unofficial LineageOS 14.1 for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

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

    About LineageOS

    LineageOS 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. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

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

    Important information

    You need a recent TWRP version to flash this ROM.

    Installation

    First time installing, coming from another ROM
    • Copy ROM to SDCard
    • Copy GApps to SDCard
    • Boot into recovery
    • Backup EFS partition
    • Wipe -> Advanced Wipe -> Dalvik Cache + System + Cache + Data
    • Install ROM
    • Install GApps
    • Reboot
    • First start takes a long time

    Upgrading from earlier version of LineageOS 14.1
    • Copy ROM to SDCard
    • Boot into recovery
    • Install ROM
    • Reboot

    [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 + 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.

    • 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).
    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.

    @nels83 Since there hasn't been any update to the 14.1 version for several months, do you happen to be working on a 15.0 version? If so, please let us know what we can do to help development!

    Cheers

    I'm still working on 14.1 (big RIL cleanup). I'm also trying to fix these annoying FCs caused by OpenGL but it's really time consuming (for me at least...) since it happens in proprietary files.
    Development slowed down for personal reasons (new house and a daughter in 1st grade :victory:).

    Anyway, I'll upload an updated version with November security fixes even if OpenGL FCs are not gone.

    As many of you know now, development on this device slows down from time to time since I work alone on this but I always come back ;)

    Beta 2 uploaded

    Hi there,

    Beta 2 has been uploaded (LOS released November security patches yesterday).
    Major change is the removal of substratum patches. I'm sorry for those of you who use it but I suspect some problems may come from these and it will be easier for me to focus on "pure" LOS stability.
    There is also some RIL work: network should be more stable and audio calls should be crystal clear (added wide-band support). Again, since I don't own a 3G or LTE device I can't test it so let me know ;)
    Last thing is a possible SDCard fix for those who experience bootloops.

    I'm now working on OpenGL FC's and audio fixes (mic and volume).

    Happy flashing
