SM-T820 TWEAKED 5.1 ***** PIE ***** 20JUN2020
T820_CTD5_TWEAKED_5.1_DB4_by_rorymc928.zip

Based on latest stock CTD5 firmware
Tweaked, stable, zip aligned. SU/D
Forced encryption disabled
Deknoxed
Debloated
(GPU driver updated to latest adreno 313 rev 23.... returning soon)
Busybox
*****
Magisk updated 20.4
Matched edxposed version can be installed, or not, if preferred via magisk
(note that edxposed is the new framework replacing xposed to allow use with pie, it requires a number of steps, but fairly simple, guide to follow )
Edxposed installer
Gravity box PIE pre installed

Can be dirty flashed over Tweaked 5.0 (recommended) , or factory reset all will work.
bootloader update, only required if coming from a ROM or firmware prior to either PIE or Tweaked 5. 0
(it will work without, but experience shows the bootloader update is required for the fingerprint reader to function )

Full installation guide posted by GrandSportX....... Here..
Thanks for his efforts



For edxposed......
Xposed does not support android pie.
However, we now have edxposed, a magisk module which does basically the same thing.
Requirements are,
1. Riru core. Go to magisk downloads and type in the search bar "riru" , near the top you'll see riru core, click the download and it will install and offer a reboot.
2. Riru edxposed. Same search and you'll see riru edxposed further down 2 versions I chose sandhook, no reason but it works for me, same thing download it, it installs and offers reboot.
3. Edxposed installer , almost identical to the xposed installer, already installed in the Rom, open it and you should find gravitybox pie version in the modules section it may require switching on.

Advantage of edxposed is it passes safety net,..... I'm told.

Gravity box pie is still in early development, so whilst it has quite a bit there it's still a way off being complete, some selections didn't function for me, but a lot did.

Gravity box will still need to be switched on in edxposed modules.

More mods to follow...

Let me know how it goes

SM-T820 Tweaked 1.6 by rorymc928

Tweaked stock Samsung ROM
Pre-Rooted

AQI2 base

Improved SD read ahead
Zipalign on boot
Internet speed improvement
Possibly smoother?
Subtle increase in benchmark speeds about 5%

Not a major change but wanted to do something

Thanks to
Chainfire for supersu
Ashyx for custom twrp and rooting process
Samsung for the base

Do your backups,
Best with a full wipe


Please post your results


AQI2 base
Tweaked version 1.6

******Recommend update to AQI2 firmware first******

Same tweaks as above,
This firmware seemed a little slower to me but tweaked result was close to version 1.1 after a few adjustments.
Would appreciate before and after benchmarks if you have time.

What's the difference between this and AQF3? Is battery life any better? Not much feedback on this rom.
Difficult to say with the firmware changes but pretty much always better on later releases, some changes will be subtle but add up, no apparent change in appearance.
I have some mods planned but I need some feedback from others on this rom as it stands, before I go further with this rom, it runs well for me though.

Just wondering, any way you can mod this so Secure Folder can work while rooted?. I've heard it can be done with Xposed and we now have Xposed for Android 7.0

I've been a serial flasher for years but rom development is new to me, but I'll look into it, I have some minor theming to look at too

Rom seems to be running very well so far. Just installed today. Not much different from stock except for a few more options in settings. Nice work :cowboy:
Thanks for replying, I tried a T825 rom as well they had a few boot loops, I have no way of testing that one. Nobody seems to be posting, except for that, which meant I had no way of knowing it was working for others, your post means I can move on with this rom and re examine the other.

Check out AKT kernel tweaks for one plus 3. I believe it works for this device also. Not sure if it's a placebo effect but seems smoother. All I did was install the apk and use the tweaks from there.

Hey @rorymc928. :) I see there's been about 90 or so downloads but no real feedback. Sooo my take. :D I flashed a couple days ago and all seems to be working perfect so far. When I test I like to run through all the settings and haven't gotten all the way through, but checking about half the settings, so far seems like everything's running perfect. I flashed, booted, set some settings, deleted some Sammy stuff I'll just never use, installed BusyBox and restored apps through Titanium and all's been running perfect. Battery seems to be really good. On a dimmed screen reading, it looks like I could get about 10 to 12 hours battery with everything enabled. Great first effort. :D:good:

Thanks for your comments, I'd like to do a bit more with this rom, I've been spending a bit of time trying to get a T825 rom going with no luck, difficult when i can't test it myself,.
At least this works ?
