Thanks for the suggestion! I'll perform a clean flash tonight and see if that's the case. Hopefully it is!

After clean flash, auto rotate doesn't work. Fingerprint sensor appears to not be working either which seems to be a firmware related issue. Attempted toggling the quick setting, auto rotate settings, reboot, etc. I downloaded an auto rotate control app from the Play Store it appears to have provided a temporary fix. The app indicated it couldn't control using gyro/accelerometer. So I believe it forces a software rotation other than relying on auto rotation. Does not automatically rotate with device and relies on toggle control. FYI

Thanks for the suggestion!

it was my understanding the build cycle for the galaxy tab s5e was 7 every. it appears it has been 17 days now with no new build. so i went on to irc/freenode channel #linageos and asked if the build cycle for this device has changed and according to LuK1337 he said that the build cycle for this device has changed to yearly. can anyone confirm that this is in fact the case now?

Two things, not necessarily LOS 17.1, but Android 10 for sure.
(1) Has anyone found a clipboard manager that consistently works? I've read that ClipStack (my favorite) can be used, but requires adb commands. Not really a problem, but I've read that ClipStack's functionality is sometimes iffy, and adb needs to be redone, a lot.

(2) Is there a way to bring back vertical tiled recents? In LOS 16 I could install another launcher then freeze Trebuchet to get this. With LOS 17.1 freezing Trebuchet results in not having access to recents at all. I'm thinking maybe a 'sidebar' app like Jina might work, but haven't tried it yet.

Thanks

Yearly? :eek:
One update per year? :eek:

There are two hardware variants of SM-T720 Wi-Fi (gts4lvwifi), one with 64GB flash and 4GB RAM, and one with 128GB flash and 6GB RAM. The only difference between these variants should be the PIT (Partition Information Table) - for obvious reasons. Since installing LAOS does not change anything PIT-related, it seems likely that the ROM should work for both hardware variants. Nevertheless, to be sure, is the 128GB/6GB supported by this ROM? Has, by chance, anyone tried the ROM on a device with 128GB/6GB hardware? Many thanks to you all, and especially to LuK1337.

I just found in the LineageOS Wiki (https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/gts4lvwifi) that 4/6 GB RAM and 64/128 GB storage are officially supported. That answers my question.

You got the answer elsewhere, but yes, I use this rom on my 128gb/6gb S5e. It works great.

I have been using this ROM for several months and I'm quite happy with it. But I have one problem. No matter what I try, I can't succeed in getting the tablet to boot after restoring from TWRP. I ALWAYS wind up reinstalling. I have been successful with restores with more ROMs than I can count, over several years. But I just can't get it to work with this one, no matter what combination of partitions I try.:(:crying:

Sadly, I broke my S5e today after dropping it on the floor. For that reason, I will no longer be able to co-maintain this device with @LuK1337. I am however free for bringing up support for the LTE variant if you want to raise some funds that would help me to buy one.

a seperate thread for this? Im happy to share some beers

I'm thinking to buy a Galaxy Tab S5e, mainly because LOS-Support.
So what are your plans regarding LOS-Support for the device for the next time ?

No plans.
I work on this stuff whenever I feel like, I guarantee exactly nothing, I can drop support anytime I wish.

( but if you look at my previous work you can get an idea how much I care about my devices )

Surely, it's up to your own and you're completely free.
No force on my side.
Just to clear up an extra investment of ~ 160 € between an S5e and and an A 10.1 (what would fit my needs also (ebook reading, websurfing during low freq. travelling)).

LOS support is an key point of my thinking.
You will understand, if LOS support comes to halt somehow, I'm somewhat lost with the extra €'s.

anyway, thanks for clarification and of course your work.
 
Builds 20200824+ depend on Android 10 firmware, and thus from now on the recovery will abort the installation if you're still on Android 9 one.

You can update the firmware by flashing following Odin package:
- https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=8889791610682890115
AP -> AP_T720XXU1BTF7_CL18864194_QB32199498_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT_meta_OS10.tar.md5
BL -> BL_T720XXU1BTF7_CL18864194_QB32199498_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5

After the firmware update you should be able to flash newer builds.


Thanks

I think this post may have gotten lost in all the LTE discussion. Has anyone successfully restored from a TWRP backup of this ROM? If so, what partitions did you restore?

    Well… It was working. After a few reboots and installing among other things Magisk, afwall and EdXposed, I'm again with no sound and no screen rotation… full logcat from boot until unlock here https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Cmmbf7kxqp/
    looks like /system/bin/audioserver crashes this may explains the sound problem but not the rotation one.

    Any one knows how to solve those issues?
    Uninstall EdXposed has to be the very first thing any sane person would do. It is known to be the source of endless headaches and badness.

    LineageOS does not just do random things and stop working without any reason. You need to reverse whatever you did that made things not work, and then figure out how to live without them.

    I would estimate that around 75% of all complaints about "this ROM has stopped working" are self-inflicted wounds. And it is quite frankly just pollution in the forums.

    On my end flashing CTK1 did end up with :
    - no sound (volume rocker was fine though)
    - no rotation
    - no video decoding
    - long boot time
    was still on 17.1.
    Flashed 18.1, behavior did not change.
    Flashed CTI1, problems aforementioned disappeared. (while keeping 18.1, no userdata format)
    Was previously on what seems to be a mix of ATE3 and BTG3.
    Now I guess I'm ATE3/CTI1.
    Might be because of me flashing manually with TWRP (BTG3 and later) so not everything may be writable.
    You can't flash firmware with twrp.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    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.

    Instructions :
    • Download the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot
    Downloads :
    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    -- bit more friendly stock -> lineage instructions --

    1. Unlock the bootloader
    - Connect to WiFi network
    - Enable OEM Unlock in developer options
    - Turn off the tablet
    - Boot to download mode manually by plugging in USB and holding all the buttons for few seconds
    - Follow instructions on the screen
    2. Connect to WiFi network and make sure OEM Unlock in developer options is still checked
    3. Flash custom VBMeta image ( https://dl.twrp.me/gts4lvwifi/vbmeta.tar.html ) in Odin ( use AP slot )
    4. After flashing VBMeta, boot to stock. It'll likely ask you to wipe data, if so do that
    5. Connect to WiFi network and make sure OEM Unlock in developer options is still checked
    6. Now you can flash TWRP ( https://dl.twrp.me/gts4lvwifi ) in Odin ( use AP slot once again ), for convenience you can hold volume up while flashing it so that you boot to recovery right after it's flashed
    7. Install Lineage × whatever else you need ( gapps, addon-su, ... )
    8. Format data
    9. Reboot ( make sure to not install TWRP app when TWRP asks you to )

    Also Odin download for those who can't find it on their own https://build.nethunter.com/samsung-tools/Odin_3.13.1.zip

    Hi, 20190928+ OpenGapps builds should work just fine without doing anything special. B-but there's a catch, you'll need to update to TWRP 3.3.1-4 or newer ^.^
    Have fun~!

    Also OpenGapps apparently moved their builds there ~ https://sourceforge.net/projects/opengapps/files/arm64/beta

    Do you think there is chance lineage based on android 11 will support this tab?
