Summarized Standard Disclaimer: use at your own risk. I use it at mine
*Full wipe recommended if coming from another rom or Omni 5.0.2*

My personal Omni Rom 5.1 is based on omnirom with the following additions from CM11/12:
  • CM12 File Manager
  • CM11 Calculator (uglier but much more functional)
  • Bash shell
  • Nano text editor
  • CM12 discontinued Koush derived superuser
  • CM11 Forward ported custom host name
  • CM12 volume long press music track control
  • CM12 ad hoc wifi detection
  • CM12 camera power button shutter control
  • CM12 openssh command line utilities
  • CM12 custom quick settings
  • CM12 trebuchet launcher

The list of personal touches isn't very long right now but they include
  • Battery icon changes color based on percent: 0-15 red, 16-50 yellow, 51-100 green
  • Jelly bean style toasts
  • Android 4.x nav bar icons
  • Disabled SELinux at the kernel
  • Up to 1.6GHz CPU OC
  • Automatic 400MHz GPU OC

Not Working/Quirky
  • Bluetooth audio?? (can't test myself)
  • Stock camera randomly freezes. Just open it again
  • AOSP keyboard swipe doesn't work: google's fault.
  • Can't hear phone calls.
  • Flashing SuperSU might cause issues since the su daemon is started by the ram disk script since boot scripts apparently don't work.
  • Plugging in a charger when turned off causes the tablet to get stuck at animation loading
Everything else not listed as a quirk probably works.

*First Time or Coming from Omni 5.0.2*
-Read second post FAQ and other important information
-Make titanium backup (highly recommended)
-Flash TWRP 2.8.1.0
-Reboot into new recovery
-Make recovery backup (meh, I don't usually do it but you have been warned)
-Full wipe
-Format system
-Install rom
-install gapps (you can use another one if you want. I always provide the most minimum gapps)
-reboot
-install adblocker

*Subsequent flashes*
-Install ROM
-Install gapps
-Reboot into rom
-Reapply any adblocking hosts file.

Downloads
Gapps Android File Host (same one as omni 5.0)
TWRP Android File Host
Wifi ROM Android FIle Host

this ROM seems nice and fast! Breathes new life to the grab. Can anybody point me to a different gapps pack? (Not so slim) I have tried out downloading several but was not able to flash any of the the .zips in twrp.

Major problems

Hi!
I'm new with flashing Samsung devices but i have flashed other and i thought this can not be so hard..

But now i need your help!

I wipe the whole thing nothing left, i can get in to recovery and i can load zip-files to the tab, but it says i have a P4wifi and I don't. What have I done wrong and is there anything I can do to fix this and flash Omni 5.1 for 3G tab?
I downloaded the omni-5.1-20150330-p4-HOMEMADE so I must have done something before this, maybe when i rooted the tab?

If u don't understand my english writing feel free to ask so maybe I can explain myself.

Perhaps you flashed the wrong recovery? Try flashing the correct one and see what happens.

Found a old recovery file from 2012, flashed that with Odin, manage to install the rom, but not the gapps.
"Android is processing" so something is happening. I will just wait and see.


Maybe I did?
There are so many files circulation out there so I´m getting confused.
Maybe you can point me in the right direction?
I downloaded the wifi rom, but no luck with that.

First of all you need the 3G rom not the WiFi rom.
Download the recovery for your 3G tab from this post, flash it and see what happens.

Hi thanks for your help!
I did an edit in my earlier post, and now i manage to install the 3G rom.
So I got my Tab up and running.

But I appreciate your help very much because I got two tabs, i bought them yesterday for 500SEK (57 US$) from a friend at work.
And now I don't want to make the same mistake again.

    As a last resort, try a different rom. Perhaps the stock ICS or even decatf's 5.1 rom, just to rule out that it's something wrong with your Omni rom. If the stuff still happens using a different rom (clean wipe and all that), then you'll know for sure that it's hardware related.

    Tried using decatf's rom this week and still have the same problems. I'd rather have a half dead tablet that may be of use if I really need it as opposed to a fully dead one. Well... with my tablet in this state there's nothing I can really do for the rom anymore so I think it's curtains for me.

    I'm thinking of having the P7510's successor be an intel skylake 12-15" convertible (laptop that can flip the screen 180 degrees). I can install desktop linux on it where new version updates and new kernel updates will be a breeze. I'll go for a low TDP cpu to maximize battery life. If anyone's tried this please tell me. No windows tablets that don't work well with linux though. I don't like the windows os.

    Thank you for sticking with me for since the summer of 2012. I've had fun on these forums and I hope you have too.

    Anyways, attached is the back of my tablet which I used for my sticker collecting.

    New weekly is up. Same omni sync as usual.

    EDIT: newest weekly is July 23

    New weekly build is up. It doesn't look like much is going on upstream right now.

    In this weekly, I finally figured out how to reduce the height of the comically oversized nav bar. The actual button images shouldn't be smaller. Just the extra vertical padding should be gone.

    Hi everyone,

    New a new weekly is up. There was no weekly last week because the wifi mysteriously died when I tested the rom. It appears to be an issue with the netd binary and its library. However, when I tried to revert those changes it still remained dead. I ended up just copying the netd and corresponding library that worked in the last rom over and everything works again.

    If I have more time I'll run more experiments to figure out what happened to it. Other than that, it's just the usual omni sync.
