I installed this ROM on my Galaxy Tab E SM-T560.
Tablet has an issue with certain thing and I can't figureout what is the reason for that.

When I call someone over a Viber app, and when I turn my camera ON, the person on the other side sees my camera, but on my end, I cannot see the cammera of the person from the other side. When person from the other side turn ON its camera, screen on my tablet become black with only small box in the corner showing my own camera. I can't figureout what is the cause for that.

I googled it and there was some 'talk' about proximity sensor, but... this rom has no such settings.
In the viber app proximity sensor is turned off. That means it would let the screen stay ON the whole time without making it 'black'. But that does not fix the issue.
I also tried to turn the proximity sensor "ON' inside the app, but again that didn't fix the issue.

I tried to call myself from my phone and yet, again, same thing happens. When I turn on the camera on my phone, my tablet goes black with only camera of the tablet showing up in the small corner of the tablet screen. At the other hand, I can see on my phone the video that is sent from the tablet camra.

So the issue is only on the tablet end, where its unable to show the video of the person from the other side of the 'line'.

Maybe because my SM-T560 tablet is recognized now as SM-T561, because it's the port from SM-T561.
After couple of days trying to figureout on my own or by googling, I have no clue anymore. I also spent all the ideas about what next should I check while trying to fix this.

Does anyone else has some suggestion or know a way how to make my tablet show the camera of the person from the other side, during video call and NOT make whole screen black (except for the small area in the corner where I see my own camera)?

Thanks!

Hello everybody,

It took me a lot of time to find a working version for the T560. To make it easier for you I created a Dropbox share with all what is needed. I collected the files from different sources.The installation steps are simple:

1. First install TWRP on the device via Odin --> "AP".
2. Copy files (3+4+5) to SD
3. Put SD into the device and start TWRP (Recoverymode)
4. Wipe everything, except SD
5. Install boot.img in boot --> NO reboot
6. Install Lineage 14.1 --> NO reboot
7. install Magisk 21.0 (probably a new version will work too)
8. Start the system and have fun.

I've been using it for 2 months and everything works fine so far, I only use it for watching Videos on Netflix or VLC, despite being a newer Android it only has 1GB of RAM so don't expect miracles.

Of course I'm not responsible if anything breaks or stops working properly, the responsibility is not mine!

Enjoy it and thanks to all who created the files i used!

I am not responsible for any damage to you your device. Everything you do, you do on your own risk!

Last year I got a Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) from Samsung for free as gift to my new mobile phone.
Unfortunately the ROMs for SM-T560NU tabs are not working on that device, but I found a working ROM of LineageOS 14.1 (Android Nougat 7.1.2) on the following page:






Just installed it to my tab and it seems working well!

I used the instructions from a comment at the bottom of the page:









Good luck and enjoy! :)

Now next problem:

I 've transfered lineage-14.1-20180419-UNOFFICIAL-gtel3g.zip in the external microSD and this is the only file in the SD card, but when I try to install it, I can't find it. It seems that the SD is empty

    LineageOS 14.1 (formerly known as CyanogenMod) ROM is based on the Android stock ROM released by Google, which the LineageOS team modifies.

    Credits go to the LineageOS team for making this ROM available to many devices and to independent developers like Ma3a_XaTa for porting this ROM to the Tab E SM-T561.

    Just installed it to my tab and it seems working well!

    I used the instructions from a comment at the bottom of the page:

    Hints & Tips:
    1. To improve the speed of the tablet, turn of animations inside Developer Options.
    2. You can also install an app freezer called "Icebox" to temporarily disable RAM hungry apps like Facebook, Chrome etc.
    3. To ensure longer battery life, disable “double tap to wake” hidden somewhere in the settings (use the app called "Kernel Adiutor" from the Playstore).
    4. If you don’t plan to put a SIM on this thing or if you are having a SM-T560 only, put it in airplane mode and then turn on your WiFI when needed. Turn of GPS/location or even sync when not necessary.
    5. Disable "Adaptive Display" in the settings. It seems to make the tablet slower.
    6. Improve the battery life of the tab by using an app called “L Speed“ (available in Playstore).
