This is what I've discovered so far:

8. Camera and selfie camera (selfie camera won't take pictures with the snap app but will with Simple Camera).
9. Video recording (no audio)

What doesn't work
Microphone
I think I might be able to fix the selfie camera using stock snap camera app in the next build by following these 2 commits I made for the SM-T350 dated May 7, 2022

https://github.com/retiredtab/device_samsung_gt58wifi/commits/lineage-18.1

The microphone works on my T357W. I used the LineageOS built in recorder app and I can record and hear my own voice.

New build called lineage-18.1-20220615-UNOFFICIAL-gt58ltebmc.zip

NOTE: All builds that I upload have been personally tested on my device to boot and function as described in post #1. Having said that, there's still a chance it won't work on your device due to human error, your configuration, your apps, etc. If it won't boot, always start with a complete wipe of everything and format your data. This is known has a clean install. Backup your data before a clean install.

June 15, 2022 release notes
1. June 5 security patches as per https://review.lineageos.org/q/topic:R_asb_2022-06
2. Whatever LiineageOS changed since last May release (about 9,500 files had to be recompiled).
3. First build to add support for 355 variants via https://github.com/retiredtab/andro...mmit/1070b76a4a10886ea243e14469af6337f0c1e17d

Hi, I'm planning to try this build on an SM-P355 - the difference being virtually nothing but having an S-Pen between the T355, wondering if that will cause any issues? And is the build at a place where it can be safely used? Thanks a lot.

No one has tried this on a SM-P355. I can only tell you that the SM-T550 and SM-P550 (big brother to SM-P350) have inverted x-axis on the touchscreen.

That is, if I take the SM-T550 rom and load it on the SM-P550, the x-axis touchscreen is inverted. That might be the same case for the SM-T355 code on the SM-P355?

BTW, if you do try this, don't be surprised if the TWRP gives you an error when trying to flash the zip.

I suspect your SM-P355 might have a code name like gt5note8wifi which is NOT part of the OTA assert in this commit

https://github.com/retiredtab/andro...mmit/1070b76a4a10886ea243e14469af6337f0c1e17d

You can always remove the assert from the updater-script in the zip. Again, this hasn't been tested so you assume all the risk. Backup your data and know how to go back to your old working rom before you try this.

but actually
i have used another person's lineageos 18.1 rom which also built for t355(i flashed t355's twrp into p355)
it runs good on p355,the touchscreen works ok,no inverted x-axis
the built in camera app will crash when i using the front camera
except these problem

The above might be because I'm using the T357W media_profiles.xml as per

https://github.com/retiredtab/andro...mmit/b311a4d7acb733d7b7efc2be70c0b7f4109eb7c6

and it might not work for 355 variant camera. You can always try to get stock 355 media_profiles.xml and replace it.

My T357W camera is broken so I can't test any of it.
actually,after using your rom,the front camera can be used in the built in camera app,but the all system's hud looks a little bit weird

    Q24. Will this run on the SM-T355 or SM-P355?
    A24. No. It has not been tested on the SM-T355 or SM-P355 and it's likely the touchscreen won't work.


    Confirmed booting on an SM-T355Y. Touchscreen works

    To install, I had to modify the updater-script file in path /META-INF/com/google/android/ to allow it to install unconditionally
    If you can verify the functionality in "what works" as per post #1, I think I can modify the script to add the SM-T355.

    The reason I wrote touchscreen likely won't work is that the SM-T350 and SM-T357W require different touch screen drivers. Since I don't have a SM-T355, I guessed that it would likely require it's own touchscreen driver as well.

    Also, please test the selfie camera/video using stock camera and simple camera. It may actually work, but I didn't know that my selfie camera has a hardware problem since I bought this used so I can't test it. Simple camera 5.3.1 can be downloaded from
