Thanks again for this fantastic rom. The Bluetooth gets disconnected and disabled altogether after using for over 2-3 minutes. Especially if you try to connect more than one device to the tablet like a keyboard and a headset. You have to reboot so that Bluetooth gets enabled again.

Any reason to use 14.1 over this?

my issues with this rom so far
- bluetooth keyboard not working (at least the one from the Logitech case)
- pen occasionally crashing until reboot

performance and battery life way better than 14.1 for me, so no reason to go back. imho 15.1 is awesome

Try OpenCamera fcrom the store. Works just fine on mine; I use VLC to playback videos.
Interestingly I gave it a try and my camera worked no problem immediately. I missed the old ui I had so I went to restore through twrp but that gave me problems as well. Dunno why but my internal storage got partially corrupted so I had to wipe it and just start from scratch. Didn't really lose anything though, the corruption was very strange. Couldn't see files in solid explorer, could in default file manager but photos couldn't be loaded and yet they could be copied off no problem. Happened another time before when I didn't do anything to the tablet so I don't know what causes it.

Just bought a used note pro. Overall a great tablet! This ROM really brings the older device back to life.

I've run into a couple hiccups with this ROM. Most of them are NBD.. however,

I've been having some issues with the spen which is why I picked this device up. I need to be able to scan documents and then write over them with this tablet.

It seems that the device doesn't detect the spen being removed, so using the cm spen app doesn't do much good.

when the pen is detected the touch screen is not disabled so resting your hand on then screen while writing totally messes up writing in apps. It seems to work fine if you can keep your palm off the screen but this IMO this is awkward and not an issue with my other note products. Cmpen has a feature to disable the screen when the pen is removed but this feature doesn't work because from what I can tell, the device doesn't know about its removal. Maybe that sensor is something this device doesn't have?

It would be nice to have some kind of tooltip/notification that the pen was removed, as well as pen calibration and sensitivity settings.. if there exist I just don't know where they are.

I appreciate everything you do and all the time you've taken to keep this tablet alive since it's for the most part the only device like it.

Anyone can tell me if This Rom with Magisk is detecting DRM on Zatoo.tv and Waipu.tv Streaming Apps ?

Tried testing for you but neither app is available on the Canadian play store :(

Ive had no issues with Netflix or YouTube running this ROM though. Make a backup with TWRP before installing so you can revert easily if it doesn't work

I was answering a Note 3 rom, with only fast charging, this comment; Outside Note 3: Charging battery,, in Note 3 charger-box, battery last a lot longer ?

I'm here too, trying to choose a ROM for Note pro 12,2 but i like to have a ROM with no spen problems, and not only quick charging !

call volume level too low

hi. i am using the 20180708 build which works great and stable.

the only problem i found so far is the volume of a phone call.
it is very low (volume level in the settings is on max of course)
and pressing the speaker button from the call app does NOT increase it :(
is there a workaround for this?

Just tried this ROM on a T905 (Tab Pro 12.2 LTE (bought in EU). Since it's the same mainboard and components as the P905. MHL out is not working, screen mirroring is missing, auto screen rotation does not work....and what's even more problematic is that Trebuchet corrupts (force close) and keyboard is "broken" (constant lock-up's, very slow to use). I really would like to know how you guys got this working. Have tried a lot for several hours now. Changing launchers, keyboards etc. Got the feeling that it might be a process that is auto-starting that causes this. Flashed using Valera's TWRP, full wipe etc. Any ideas how to solve this ?

Back at org 5.1.1 now. Also had trouble in TWRP (very slow to use, didn't react to button presses as it should).

I Odin flashed Valera's TWRP and used the open gapps arm 8.1 nano, which worked fine.

    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.

    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

    Thanks to LineageOS team
    Thanks to davidmueller13 for help with the config and initial run.
    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.
    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.
    Early experience :

    - 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.
