I'm not responsible for any damage to your device of any sort.
By flashing this you take responsibility of anything that happens.
Process at your own risk!


This firmware was developed for the p905. It doesn't apply to the p905v at this time because it's bootloader locked and a custom recovery isn't possible.

If you want to check firmware - please make backup. Better to store all partitions, at least efs and may be modem.
I'm using nano gapps.


Instructions
1. Install custom recovery
2. Download the zip(s) - firmware and Google Apps additional package (optional)
3. Backup all partitions (it least efs) and store somewhere - it need to do - because you can loose imei
4. Full wipe all
5. Flash firmware and gapps

I do get the message insert sim card. Removed and reinserted, but still does not see it.
Further testing g to be done.

I have tested this ROM for a few days.


When starting the device it gives a message system process stopped.
Next error I get insert sim, does not look to be recognized yet.
Further I did not get issues, with the basic programs.

Looks promising :)

Thank you for all the work on this!

Thanks for the releasing Oreo for the P905. It is sad that there is still no new 12" Note tablet on the market that take it's place. Especially because of that we all appreciate your work so we are not forced to abandon the device.

However I sincerly hope that you continue to release 14.1 versions until this rom is out of alpha. I and presumably others use that version as a daily driver. You skipped september security updates, I presume you couldn't find the time, so I hope for an october release. It is sad that android now needs monthly security updates but it seems it's the way things flow these days.

Kind regards,

I'm sorry, all september worked with a oreo. I do not forget the lineage 14, I did several test builds, and fixed the pressing of the left button with the s-pen (tasks switching). There is yesterday's build - publish it or wait a couple of days and post a september security update?
In any case, I will continue to work with lineage 14, I really do not like consumption in standbye mode, I want to try another kernel. Also, there is still a problem with adjusting the volume during calls.

@Valera1978,
thanks for clarifying that. I think everybody who uses your rom understands that this is a one man show and your time is limited. Regarding publishing, of cause I can't speak for anybody than myself I presume that people would agree to skip the september updates. The october updates are already available and regarding security I think digital, either everything known is patched and you are secure as far as it possible or your are not. I don't think it makes much of a difference if you have more or less vulnerabilites.

One thing that might interest other people in regards of security update is blueborne. I'm curently not sure on which level this must be patched. If it's the driver level than things might get difficult for devices that went out of support. Your last rom 0823 shows vulnerability regarding that bug collection.

Thanks for your continued work on that rom.
Kind regards,
mnemonic-de

Just curious

Is this rom being developed actively or was it more "Proof of concept" right now.

Asking because i have some issues that i could live with for a while, while it is being developed, but as i see no updates i am thinking of going back to 14.1

I don't use sim card therefore wi-fi only. From the remarks it looks like this alpha is working well except for the mobile functionality. I think I will give it a go if the basics of Google calendar and email are working via Wi-Fi.

Early experience :

Issues
- being used wi-fi only
- does not play videos at all. Some apps think they can play videos but don't initiate and stand still at time=0. Others seem to be smarter and give message video can't be played. I tried YouTube, Chrome, VLC, and Plex
- developers rights enabled but missing nifty reboot menu to boot into other options such as recovery. BTW this does work my Los 15 mido phone
- camera not working with any camera app I tried.

The good :
- seems to be faster.
- battery life also seems to be better, although not hugely so
- S-pen is working. Experience in Squid is good which is this tablet's main use
- Oreo's feature set is very nice once you get used to it. Interactive notifications are hard to miss.
- magisk works perfectly.

The p900 is officially supported by lineage so you could probably get it directly from the source! Nevermind not released just yet, probably soon though!

I tried the first version, released in September but it was not good because video playback (Facebook, youtube, dailymotion, etc.) was not working.

Has anyone tried the latest version and if you, can you confirm if the video playback works.

I have used this a couple of days now. For the purposes I do use it , all works fine.

Earlier question on video playback, I use vlc and this works.

    @NonoWeber
    The core fuctionality of the Note Pro is the Pen, that distiguishes it from being just a normal tablet. Since the palm rejection is broken I would consider this condition as a severe problem. Also other things are broken, see this thread. All these things are working in 14.1. That's why I would appreciate a security update on the 14.1 rom as an intermediate solution.

    Omg Valera is back. New build of this release was added today. I'm hoping that the new build is much more stable now so that I can upgrade to Oreo.

    It was a very long way to home. :) I'm here, recently launched 2 completely different tablets - tab a sm-t585 (7870 exynos) and tab s3 sm-t825 (820 qualcomm). In the near future I will continue to work with p905.
    Current build was not bad. Almost everything works, kernel is enforce now, but there is still work to be done.
    From the current problems:
    - gps and ir
    - drm (netflix dnw)
    - Realvnc is crashing the whole device, it should be the kernel problem - I getting crash in realvnc in all builds, since september last year
    - I would like to review the kernel (I do not like how the rotation sensor works, it's slow and also need check the sensitivity of the touchscreen)

    And in the near future I'll try to do a stock firmware port 8.0, it's should be intresting.
