SEANDROID ERROR
  • If you see a message at boot about Recovery or Kernel is not SEANDROID Enforcing, you can ignore it. This is just telling you that you are not running Samsung stock software. It has no effect on recovery or the ROM itself nor related to either.

Instructions
1. Install custom recovery Link
1.*I have built a new version of TWRP with the MM kernel. MTP, Vibations, ADB now work and there are performance increases. The rom will need to allow v1awifi naming for flashing in recovery. Link
2. Download the zip(s) - ROM and Google Apps additional package (optional)
3. Backup all partitions in TWRP - this will be your recovery point if things don't install correctly.
4. Full wipe all
5. Flash ROM
6. Flash GApps

Note: Please make sure you have a Lollipop bootloader. Below are the steps to flash it.

Known Issues
Lower than stock audio volumes
MHL out to TV not working

GApps

Platform: ARM
Android: 6.0


Bootloader Information
You need to make sure you have a lollipop bootloader installed or else your device won't boot. Here you can go grab the latest bootloader and odin and flash it in download mode. Read all the steps before you do this.

Make sure you have a full backup because just in case you something fails.

Here are the steps to flash this via ODIN:
  1. Reboot your tablet into download mode. Do this by first switching off the phone, then pressing and holding the volume down + home button together and then pressing the power button. Press volume up button to enter download mode.
  2. Open ODIN on your computer. You’ll see the ID:COM box turning yellow with a COM port number upon successful connection with the tablet.
  3. In ODIN click the BL button, select the bootloader firmware. It's a tar.md5 file.
  4. Make sure Auto Reboot & F. Reset Time options are selected in ODIN
  5. Click on the start button. When the process is completed your phone will reboot.

Over clock?

Hi Thom,
want to know if you are able to make this kernel ready for over clock. Further I use Valera s 5.11, which one is faster this or Valera's 5.11. I know that marshmallow are in generally slower then 5.11 so will it make sense to change. I have some applications + movies which do not play/work fine, need a little more performance in GPU and cpu.
Thanks for supporting this device, I love this tablet

This rom is really fast. Like faster than 5.1.1. I am still making changes and it is speeding up by the day. I would almost say it is stable and fast enough for videos and apps that you trying to run. Try tonight's nightly and give it a shot and let me know what your thoughts are.

Yes, I was hoping there's a list of launchers compatible with CyanogenMod. I always used Nova Launcher pre-root, but post-root post-adding CM, it crashes constantly to the point of unusability. But I'm not fond of the default launchers included so as I said, I was hoping there's a list somewhere. Thanks.

Thank you for the ROM. YouTube and .gif files aren't working properly in the latest nightly. Used Micro Gapp install. Also web pages very laggy, especially ones that contain a lot of ads.

Just thought I'd report that I installed the latest (4/26) over the top of the earlier april version via a "dirty" install (no wipe). Also installed the latest open gapps stock version with no error message after reboot. That's it so far...

What device are you on? All these problems you have is not normal. Sure you're on the P900 wifi? I haven't come across one single app ,including launchers, that don't work with this ROM.

It's a completely new ROM @thompatry Much snappier and very smooth. No prob with new Gapps and setup wizard. All in all a very promising ROM. Thanks a million!

Yep, P900 wifi.

It's not the app though, or the rom, or any of that. It's me, technology has always and will always take a sick ammount of pleasure in royally screwing me over in all things everyone else manages perfectly fine.

But if it's me, even if I do exactly as everyone else does, the computer will probably explode in my face.

Did you wipe everything clean before you installed?

Yeah, but would that even make any difference? It takes like 10 hours to get everything back on, transfers slow, and I'd rather avoid that if this might not even work.

Well, if your device isn't broken in some way, I guess thats the only way to fix it.... You haven't thought about keeping your files in the cloud? 100gb Storage on Google drive is about 2 bucks a month

Anyone managed to get xposed to work? I tried a lot of builds of the app and of the binairy, but every time I open xposed and I click on something, I get a black screen and I need to restart to get my tablet working again.

The new version is very fast. I am, however, having issues with Chrome playing back media (video) and in fact while using youtube got an error message that Android was having trouble playing media. Sometimes it will play video... but often it will not.

Anyone else having that issue, or should I wipe this baby and do a clean install?

Same here. It's the same issue with play music. Tried everything. Clean install. Full Gapps and second time Pico Gapps and downloaded Play music from Play store. And no go. Installed older build and voila, works again. Must be ROM related.

    Hey Everyone,

    Just a quick update, I have posted a new build today with usual updates. Nothing really changed on the device or kernel side of things. OK Google is still broken and the default audio levels are still not set. We are getting close to having them finalized.

    In other exciting news, I have released CM-14.1 for the P900 (v1awifi). Everything is super stable. I hope this is a good Christmas present! Here is the thread. Link

    New CM-13.0 nightly posted. Link

    As always, keep giving the great feedback.

    Hey Guys,

    Long time no talk. Been busy with the holidays and works. I am working Nougat. So far it is looking good. I am working on getting it bug free before I release it. In other news, the next release will have some battery optimization in it. I have been testing it and it looks very promising. I will release that as soon as I can get something out that is ready for the public. Last item of business, the Exynos5420 Team has been working really hard developing a kernel auditor for the Exynos5420 devices. It going to awesome. It practically can control everything kernelwise. We are looking to release it sometime and December.

    In other news, thank you all for the logs on the S Pen. I know the issue now. It is now the battle of trying to figure out how to fix it.

    Last bit but not least, @DGT79 is helping me out on getting responses back to faster. I have been so busy trying to fix things and work on N I don't have a ton of time to respond on XDA. As always, if you have issue or questions, please feel free to ask but search the thread first to make sure it hasn't been asked. @DGT79 and I enjoy making this device the best it can.

    Alright that is all I got for right now. Keep giving the feedback and I will keep fixing items.

    Hey Everyone. Sorry i disappeared for about a month. It has been beyond hectic with moving, finishing school, and getting started at my new job. I did not forget about you or the development of this rom or any others. A little backstory, I got moved to my new place and got all set up. Well I needed to wait for the internet to be set up. Finally that was set up, my build server motherboard died so I have been trying to come up with something new. I finally have another dev helping me out with this (they would like to remain anonymous). So this week I will be getting into the nitty gritty of the work again. I am currently building a version that has all the latest CM update but I have not made any changes on the device since my last build. As soon as that is finished, I will post it. I am going to be working on the camera a lot this week and hopefully I can get that going. Last but not least, thank you for all the feedback. I can't test everything on my own so this feedback is valuable. So with all that, I hope you had a great weekend and a new build will be posted soon. :)
