Slim Tab V6 [ARK4] [T835/T830]

Search This thread
It's probably related to the Modesty kernel. Several users have reported that Bluetooth input devices are not working. Unfortunately, I don't have such a device to test with.

I need an affected user to try some older versions of the kernel to determine when the issue was introduced.

I would love for this to be fixed, so I'll try this once I have time to do it. Thanks for the help!

I have added a Known Issues section to the top of the kernel's thread, and included this (currently the only known issue, as it happens).

Hopefully, this will save a few users some inconvenience, until such time that I am able to fix it.

Hi! I tried a few versions, and I am unable to get past the lock screen on versions before 0.99.15. I am probably doing something wrong. However, the issue still persists on that version.

Thank you very much for the testing.

You're probably doing nothing wrong. The lock screen behaviour you see is almost certainly due to an incompatibility introduced by a change in your firmware. Kernels older than 0.99.15 were built for earlier firmware than the current ARK4.

Works well on my device.

Can you refer me to a link to start learning cooking custom ROM please? Sorry. yep, I looked on the net but there are far too many and I got confused.

    So after fixing this error preventing img extraction i was able to cook a new version of this rom. I didnt change much apart from switching to Nova Launcher and iOS emojis. Also the adblocking hostfile is standart now.

    After testing this for a while, I had no bugs while running this version until now. Hope you enjoy this release as much as I do. :cowboy:

    I debloated very softly so everything works if you have different use profiles than I do, personally I use package disabler to disable more than 50+ apps left in this rom without sacrificing stability so If you like very clean stuff thats your way to go.

    Here it is

    Clean flash + deleting android folder on sdcard is strongly advised, also clean cache if you deleted android folder in the new installation

    Release of rom version 2.1 :victory:
    Changelog:
    - GPS fixed
    - Few more buildprop tweaks taken from googlewiz oreo credits to foobar66
    - Modesty kernel by default credits to Ianmacd

    Dirty flash is always fine.

    Im thinking about replacing samsung apps by google ones however there wont be tooltips on spen hovering like on the samsung ones and no splitscreen while being not being in portrait mode. :confused:
    Any idea on what else to add/debloat/whatever?

    For T830 users im pretty sure that this rom will work fine If you flash the Modesty kernel after rom installation.

    Download 2.1 here!


    Following is release 2.2!

    Changelog:
    - Now prerooted with latest Ianmacd magisk!
    - Cloudflare DNS servers used
    - Enabled Doze for Google Play Services and Playstore

    v3.1 - File no longer available
    Im currently rebuilding the rom as the rom wasnt 100% stable in longterm use.
    The process will result in a bigger yet more stable rom which is fine i guess.
    Also, all of the apps including the launcher will be updated and all of the added Apps can now be removed.
    Magisk and kernel will be updated to the new release too.

    Rom will be up tomorrow as im busy today.

    BTW V4+ will be called Slim Tab :fingers-crossed:
