It appears that this update has turned the orientation of the arrow keys roughly -90° on the official Keyboard Cover for me. Nice rom btw!Hello all.
I uploaded the new version, including fixing the power-off mode charging.
I'm using the LPM binary that is from Samsung for the power-off mode charging. When you plug in the charging cable while the tablet turns off, you can see the original charging screen you might see in the stock firmware.
And I tried to fix the Bluetooth inputs and the OTG drives issues but I couldn't. I can reproduce these problems but I cannot find how to fix them for now. But I can confirm that the wired input devices are working such as a keyboard and a Playstation 4 controller.
Please check out the first post of this thread.
I actually installed the ROM and GApps a second time without wiping anything and it booted.
I thought I could bypass the freezing by letting Wi-Fi always on but encountered a black screen after a 20h pause.
Awesome job! Thanks for the rom updates, this is a great device that should last years if not for the manufacturer forced early obsolescence.
I managed to install on 2nd time without issue (not sure why the first time the twrp did not flash right and I was stuck on samsung recovery, not managing to copy any files or to restart it. Had to install oem rom again and redo it). Did try to make it work with nikgapps without success (NikGapps-am271-reloaded-arm64-10-20211002-signed.zip), it ended up crashing on that initial configuration.
I then went with opengapps, but now it seems to be rebooting automatically or something, it gets stuck on the lineage animation and I have to manually force a reboot as nothing but power button works.
Yes, that's what I did! Perhaps it's another app having conflicts, not sure. I'm gonna test it out a bit more and later make a clean install to see how it goes. It could also be the gapps version as I'm having some issues with chrome as well (I used open_gapps-arm64-11.0-pico-20210925.zip btw)Have you installed the version of TWRP listed on the first page? If you've already done that, try booting into TWRP, wipe everything (data, system, cache, etc.) and then flash the ROM, and then immediately flash opengapps (for 11.0), afterwards boot into the OS. Hope this works, I've flashed a few versions of this amazing ROM and haven't had any issues using this procedure.
Which device do you refer to?
Thanks for your quick reply..
chrome is literal spyware dont download.@Awesometic: Did check logcat and I think that this is related to the issue for the secondary user when I try to install new apps:

It looks like it cannot mount a volume. Maybe thgis helps. I still get the messge that there is not enough space availble.
BTW, in the latest version I was able to install chrome for the secondary user. So this seems to be fixed somehow.
I tested different cards, differents size, and eventually some cards are able to complete formating and be used, and some not. So I guess it's more a speed/quality problem than something else.Hello,
I tried to format sdcard as adoptable, on the SM-T820, but at best the card finish in corrupt state, and at worst the rom is broken and the tablet needs to be reinstalled. I've even got to reflash twrp, cause the tablet wouldn't enter in recovery mode anymore nor go on.
Also tried to format the card from twrp, no better success in having the OS recognize it or want to work with it.
Looking on gitlab about official LOS 18.1 shows that this problem occurs also on other hardware phones. I'll try to format the card as external and check if it's more stable doing so.
## About the kernel
### Update on 2021. 12. 3
Finally the first release including my custom kernel is published, as of December 3, 2021.
Now all the later releases will have my kernel.
This kernel is based on CTD1 firmware, and I have done the following jobs so far;
But we have still some limitations.
- Merged android-linux-stable/msm-3.18, which is including up to Linux 3.14.140 patches
- Merged LA.UM.7.6.r1-07800-89xx.0 CAF tag
- Replaced the built-in WLAN driver into the CAF one from LA.UM.7.6.r1-07800-89xx.0 tag, which is the latest version
- Disabled most of Samsung-specific flags including TIMA, KNOX, RESTRICT, ...
- Enabled F2FS file system
- Added AutoSMP CPU hotplug feature and enabled by default for better battery consumption
- Added AdrenoBoost and enabled by default for better GPU performance
- Added Anxiety I/O scheduler for better I/O performance
- Enabled TCP Westwood congestion window control by default for better network stability
- Set CONFIG_HZ to 300 which is recommended in Android devices and it improves overall interactivity and UX with no power cost
- Now the S-Pen palm rejection is implemented in the kernel rather than the Android frameworks
- Maybe more..?
This is the first version of mine, so there might be some more upgrades on later.
- It still uses the legacy camera driver from CTD1 firmware so unfortunately there are the same bugs on the camera as before
- The screen on/off using a flip cover is broken for an unknown reason. The system recognizes how the flip cover status changed but actually not working
- Cannot upgrade to the next CAF tag because of some old blobs we have, I believe
- Maybe more..?
I think the most meaningful thing about this job is now we can edit the kernel on the full Linux kernel commits.
Yeah, 20211130 is the latest version now. I'm sorry for the ambiguous titles.
