Thanks a lot... I was wondering if there were someone concerned about porting lineage for sm-t560(gtelwifi).

Do you know if there are plans to port a newer version of lineage for this device?

I don't own this device. A friend gave me his tab for a few days and that's what i got so far.

Been waiting for a custom ROM for this for a long time. Been running rooted stock with Nova launcher and xposed modules. This ROM is light speed in comparison. Google account recovered apps perfectly, no data loss at all. Smooth, seamless upgrade.

Top work chap. Top work. Not tried firing it up under ART yet? Any point?

Tab E is having an identity crisis

it clearly says its a SM-T560NU.
said it in android before I started this adventure, says it on the back of the device as well.

I used Odin 3 to flash TWRP 2.8.7.0
got there
used TWRP to flash SUv2.82 SR5

at this point I realized I had forgotten to backup the stock system
it hung at the logo screen

tried again, same result.
used twrp to try a different SU.
same result.

all that to say this weird occurrence....
I found the Lineage OS 14 rom for the SM-T560NU
flashed it
and the log literally said
this package is gtelwifiue for device smt560,smt560nu. this device is gtelwifi.

WTF??

so know I am grabbing the Lineage 11 rom for gtelwifi.
guess ill see what happens.

Lineage 11 zip flash failed. it didn't specify any reason.

I can still get into TWRP. I just cant seem to find an OS itll accept.
could this have something to do with knox ?

It's probably a problem of TWRP. They guy who did it made a misstake.

Just to make it clear:
This rom is only for SM-T560 (gtelwifi, Spreadtrum CPU) and not for SM-T560NU (gtelwifiue, Qualcomm CPU).

After installing my PC doesnt recognize it anymore :(
The Menu-Key is also not working

Mensch, grad gesehen, dass du ja Deutsch bist :D
Naja, wie gesagt. Installation usw lief alles super, Tablet läuft auch fix
Allerdings erkennt mein PC jetzt das Tablet nicht mehr. Es kommt zwar der Windows Sound, dass ein Gerät angeschlossen wurde und auch das Tablet merkt, dass es angeschlossen wurde .. aber es taucht eben im Explorer nicht auf
Ebenso geht die Menü-Tatste nicht .. schmeiß es jetzt wieder runter, sehr schade :/

After quite some pain usiing it, Iam not recommending this rom.
Its mostly broken, many apps wont work for some reason and some buttons too

Returning to Stock Android, seems like the better choice .. :/

--- Tablet isnt recognized anymore in Odin, no way to flash it back to Stock OS ---

Stuck on this half-working Rom now ..

First of all, thank you very much, codeworkx, for working on this! I've given it a try and while I didn't find any apps that did not work, I also noticed that the menu button does not work. My primary motivation was to get off of Android 4 so that I can install Lego's Boost App on this device which requires Android 5+. Lineage OS 11.0 is still Android 4 so I knew it would not help but I wanted to learn more about LineageOS and this was the only tablet I could play with.

I just flashed it back to the stock ROM using the process described at https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2283598 using the original firmware downloaded from https://samsung-firmware.org/de/model/SM-T560/ primarily because I noticed that Netflix is no longer available using LineageOS. I'll keep an eye on the development in that corner, though, maybe one day we'll have LineageOS 14.1 for this tablet with a working Netflix. :)

I have installed this rom on a SM-T560 using the proceedure detailed by the OP. Only issues I found was the recent apps button didnt work, so simply remapping the home key to carry out this function on double tap works perfectly, AOSP keyboard kept falling over, installation of Gboard solves this problem and ART will not enable correctly in the developer settings. Hey ho!

Made my tablet faster and now I have been gifted a cheap BT keyboard, its almost like a laptop.

thanks to the OP/dev for this, my hat is off to you Sir

I wanted to create a new Rom myself, but when I enter a repo sync -j20 --force-sync I get the following error:
Code:
 fatal: error parsing manifest /home/marcel/.repo/local_manifests/gtelwifi.xml: not well-formed (invalid token): line 42, column 90
What could it mean?

    Cm12.1 &cm13

    Here guys I have tried both cm 12.1 and cm 13 on my SM-T560 and they both work but what I can say is that they are for the SM-T561 which has the exact same chip set but because we don't have a simcard tray we can't make phone calls but at least we have lolipop and marshmallow here is the link for cm 12.1
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BylEf8QZTNxZSkZUeDZIb0h3Tms/view?usp=drivesdk
    And here is the link for cm 13
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ewM0DjQ4ee8sR9qd4n4XC8ZrrH9_Tedi/view?usp=drivesdk
    And if you want to try cm 14.1 I have tried it and it works great but please install Pico gapps as it runs smoother And also if you want root on lineage 14.1 then use supersu V 2.79 then update it in the app or you can just use the root that comes with the Rom that comes pre installed
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7RroK_4a_mfYVp2QWZHMWZkMTg/view?usp=drivesdk

    And then here is the link for open gapps
    https://opengapps.org
    Like I said this custom ROMs are for the SM-T561 but so was the lightning ROM but it flashed on no bother so don't worre I have flashed all 3 on and they worked for me also here is the link for superuser flashable zip file
    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/foru...supersu/v2-64-2-66-supersu-mode-t3286120/amp/

    Flashed CM13 on my SM-T560 and it works really well. Installed Magisk and Xposed and no complaints so far. Since it's for the T561, you'll get the 'No Sim Card' icon and warning, but can be easily removed with Gravity Box for MM in Xposed.

    TBH, I would have preferred CM14.1, but the link @Andropop1 posted leads to a Grand Prime version that won't install, and haven't found any other link over the net... In any case, CM13 works perfectly, so for those who want to give it a go, you won't be disappointed. ;)



    I posted a guide to update the T561 to CM 14.1 LineageOS

    Hi,

    I've started to port LineageOS cm-14.1 to SM-T560/gtelwifi. You can checkout local_manifest here and build a userdebug package yourself:

    github.com/olliiiver/local_manifest

    What works:

    - Multitouch
    - Screen
    - Wifi
    - Battery info
    - Double tap to wake (included that into the kernel and ts driver)

    What's not working:

    Anything else.

    I will mainly use the tablet for home automation (Fully browser and FHEM tablet UI interface), so currently I reached my personal goal - "Works for me".

    However, it should be easy to implement all the other stuff like sound, codecs etc...
