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!

If you want to check firmware - please make backup. Better to store all partitions, at least efs and may be modem.



1. Install twrp
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

Known Issues:
- speakers during calls
- camera can be buggy, it's work, but some errors in logcat in isp module

Few notes about release:
- the config and the vendor has been re branded
- the kernel has been updated to the last caf kernel LA.UM.7.5.r1-04000-8x96.0 (December 27, 2018). our original samsung kernel based on LA.UM.6.5.r1-05300-8x96.0 (January 04, 2018). I spent 2 weeks to make it work. It was really intersting experience

Hello I have finally rooted with magisk this ROm, but Magisk shows me at SaftyNet the: ctsProfile: False.
I have already hidden all apps with the hiding function but it still does not help. What can I do?

Hi, use magiskprops module (look in magisk app downloads) to change the device fingerprint (ie make rom pass as vendor made). All custom rom have cts failed because their fingerprint is "something... test-keys/debug-keys".

hello for about 1-2 weeks my tablet is spinning, I have the feeling that the ROM is very unstable if you use the tablet heavily and the CPUs are all at 100%. Then the tablet gets very hot at the top, the battery runs out very quickly and sometimes the tablet crashes. What can I do there?

Does this ROM have same issues that T820 LineageOS has with unlocking the tablet after changing the device fingerprint using magisk hide props config? When rebooting and trying to unlock the lock screen loops when using PIN or nothing to unlock. Then I have to hard reboot and it unlocks the first time.

@Valera1978 Thanks so much for your on going development on the Samsung tablets. Your work has always inspired me. :)
I'm having difficulties getting a fingerprint to register. Is this a common problem for the custom Roms for this device or is this just a problem that I am having?
