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.

Instructions
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 initial 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

Hi all
I have not been here for a long time, there were many different projects.
For the last 2 months my main priority has been to run the pie on tab s3. It was not very easy. First, I spent a lot of time on sensors, then I spent 2 weeks on the caf kernel, and then a huge amount of time on the ril. a week ago everything was ready, but there were big problems with stability, as a result, after 20-30 builds, today I managed to solve all the problems. I tested the firmware a bit, it looks exactly the way I wanted - everything is fast and smooth.

Why don't we have android 9.0 for Tab S3? That. Is my question.

Thank you very much for your work on the T825 and congratz on solving the issues!

Sadly I'm another one of those hijacking T820 users. ;) I'd be very happy to help you bring your work to the T820, too. If you need somebody to test T820 builds: please feel free to contact me.

Hi,

this ROM is great, very smooth and stable - thank you very much.

The only thing which doesn't work is USB-OTG :(
I tried to bypass with android.hardware.usb.host.xml, i tried the OTG-Enabling Module for Magisk, but no USB-Device is recognized by the tablet - except the connected Windows-PC.
Also in TWRP USB-OTG does not work.

Does anybody know a workaround?

Now I installed crDroid, same error. Therefore, I think the error is actually TWRP. After installing TWRP, the tablet stops responding to plugged-in USB devices, except the PC ...

My construction with usb(otg)-microusb + microusb-type-c dnw even on my phone (xiaomi mi8). Original usb(otg)-type-c still on the way to me from aliexpress. :( When it arrive (hope 1-2 weeks) - i'll check it.

Maybe just not the time to check in here or reply daily. We will see. :)
Yes, sorry was hard last week, and worked on weekend.
Time was only for release note pro 12.2 pie.

Few notes about tablet t820 (wifi version):
I have another tablet (tab a t585) - it's exynos 7870 and lte\wifi version completely the same. Differ only in gps.
But with t820\825 all much-much more harder. Time ago we (i'm and bonuzzz) tried to merge vendor for both tablets, but no luck.
Samsung made different vendor, initial scripts, links. Without tablet I cann't do anything.

Good news: most likely in March I will get a t820 and I will have few weeks for bring lineage too.

Thank you for the rom, i am really happy with it! It works perfect for daily use, no major battery drain, pen works too! Two minor bugs:
1. The tablet freezes and restarts after display wake up if you only enter the sim pin after restart but not the unlock pin.
2. The tablet always wakes up with the same luminance.

It is so much faster than the Samsung garbage...

This would be so awesome if you could do something for our T820! Havoc OS on this device would be a dream! :angel:
