I'm saying that the roms are always slow once they do boot up. But now I think it's my fault for being on marshmallow firmware instead of nougat. Because he probably uses the nougat source code from Samsung kernel
Quite a few people were on marshmallow before upgrading to fix the backlight issue.
The kernel being used is here and I think its forked from here. So, while it is still version 3 of the linux kernel i don't think its based off nougat.

Love this ROM! I was wondering since this tablet is lacking in ram, if I increase the virtual ram (with my SD card) would it increase in speed or just help by being able to run more back ground process? Thanks

Probably not speed, but it would let you keep more apps open at once. My tab with like 50 apps installed when idle has 300 megs free ram. The system, at least with smaller apps, has enough working room so increasing ram may not do anything at all. So unless you are trying to use a chonky Chinese app game you're probably fine 🤣. I say that mostly jokingly.

So, if you are having trouble using an app because it takes too much ram, or would like to have more apps open at once, you would want to use zram (compressed vdisk in ram) or paging (using the sdcard as ram).

Yes, I have a ton of apps that are ram hogs and when they all decide to start running in background at the same time. It seems to crash and shut down my tablet. I have to do the "force start" power/volume down for 20 seconds thing to get the tablet back up again. Thanks for the help!

One other thing that may help, is long pressing on the app and going to its info page, then go to battery, and one of those options will stop it from running when you are not actively using it.

I know this is more a general android question than a rom specific question but is there any way to get the Ethernet settings like on the stock rom? I need to set a static IP but doing it thru a terminal with ifconfig doesn't seem to be working

edit: turns out that turning on ethernet tethering works for what I'm using the tablet for (bimmerlink for my car)

    Were you able to do this? I tried but I get stuck in a boot loop after flashing.
    Flash the latest firmware in Odin, then boot into (the now stock) recovery and factory reset.

    Small selinux thing, when enforcing the lcd brightness cannot be changed through settings. It can be turned on and off, and the brightness can be changed by manually writing to /sys/devices/soc.0/1a00000.qcom,mdss_mdp/qcom,mdss_fb_primary.133/leds/lcd-backlight/brightness, but by any other means it does not work.

    I have noticed (unrelated to selinux), this rom seems to run a lot cooler (40-70 rather than 50-80) than the Q one. The speaker is louder too 👍.

    (Happy 4th Of July to those who live in the US too!)

    Ota updates only work for officially maintained crdroid roms. This one is unofficial, so you can just download the new zip, and flash it in twrp. You don't need to wipe data if you are staying on the same android version (and are not switching to another rom.). I would recommend wiping cache/dalvik cache though.
    Yeah, I’ll probably wipe the caches before flashing with TWRP. Thanks for the help!

    I’m staying on this rom, so I assume I’ll only need to wipe the caches.
