I can't boot into TWRP. I downloaded the file you had listed (3.2.3). I also tried turning off auto reboot in odin. Any suggestions?

Do you already have a new ROM installed and just want to update?
Or is it the first attempt at a new ROM?

Can you enable 'Advanced restart' in Developer options?

I remember I had trouble to get into recovery using the key combinations.
A note I wrote to myself:

"To get into recovery from Download mode::
Hold Home+Vol-Down then PWR-Down until screen black, then immediately slide from Vol-Down to Vol-Up to get into recovery"

This is a first time attempt. Also i dont see an advanced restart in dev options?

Edit:

It worked. I followed your last instructions for button commands. Thanks!

just installed the latest build & working fine

However, after installing openGApps (tried: full / micro / nano) via TWRP the tablet turns off automatically after reboot.
Am i doing something wrong?

My Samsung Galaxy Tab E SM-T560NU wont boot the lasted May 5 security have you made any changes to the device tree to get to boot
I'm not sure what you are are referring to, but I test all my builds that I upload to make sure they boot and meet the functionality that I outline in post #1.

There have been no changes in my source code since the March 7, 2021 release when I fixed the audio over bluetooth problem.

That's really odd i'm the same source your using to build my custom LOS 17.1 based ROM Called LFR & it's not booting the lasted build it will only boots the build with the may security patch.

    I am not responsible for lost data, identity theft, lost money, security vulnerabilities, bricked devices or any other hardware or software malfunctions that comes as a result of flashing this ROM.

    I spent hundreds of hours building this rom. The least you can do is spend a few minutes reading posts 1, 2, and 3 before posting.


    Try this build at your own risk. It's likely to have bugs and is EXPERIMENTAL as 17.1 is a work in progress. It boots and seems to work fine on my SM-T560NU, but I have only tested it for 24 hours. Problems will likley surface later?

    BACKUP YOUR FILES and have a copy of your working image BEFORE trying my build.

    I built a new image of SM-T560NU following the instructions at

    https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/gtelwifiue/build

    What works.

    1. bluetooth
    2. wifi
    3. brightness
    4. external audio
    5. GPS
    6. audio through headphone jack
    7. Google play store (using gapps pico)

    Known problems.

    1. stock camera

    Stock LineageOS camera app back camera does not display properly. It is split into 8 frames. Use opencamera apk from

    https://f-droid.org/en/packages/net.sourceforge.opencamera/

    I will not be spending anytime trying to fix the stock camera problem. I never use it and opencamera works.

    2. The stock Jelly browser crashes a lot. Use a different browser. There's lots of better options that are more stable and reliable than the built in Jelly browser.

    3. FM Radio is not support since this device doesn't have the LTE functionality.

    4. text on home screen looks funny. This only seems to affect the home screen and nowhere else. Problem is with stock trebuchet launcher and/or its fonts. I have seen the same problem on the SM-T350, SM-T560NU, SM-P550 and Nexus 7 2013.

    I tried rootless pixel launcher from fdroid as a quick and simple test and see no problems with home screen text. Rootless pixel uses a different font though. A future LineageOS update could resolve the problem?

    FAQ - I spent hundreds of hours building this rom. The least you can do is spend a few minutes reading everything before posting.

    Q1) What TWRP should I use?
    A1) Use 3.2.3 found at


    Q2) Does the build work on xyz?
    A2) I have no idea. I only have the SM-T560NU. It will not work on the SM-T561 and SM-T560 as it uses a different SoC (CPU).

    Q3) Application xyz doesnt' work. Can you fix it?
    A3) I only fix what I use. If you use app xyz and it doesn't work, then try 16.0 or going back to the last rom that worked for you.

    Q4) My tablet hangs or crashes with 17.1. This build is slow and buggy. Can you fix it?
    A4) Go back to the last working stable rom for you. 17.1 is a work in progress and will have bugs and frequent changes.

    Q5) Do you plan to update the rom?
    A5) Yes as long as I have high speed Internet, I wil try to release the rom monthly to incorporate the security patches.

    Q6) Can you build this for the SM-T560?
    A6) No, I don't have the SM-T560.

    Q7) Can I turn off the on screen navigation keys?
    A7) To turn off on screen navigation, go to settings, system, advanced, gestures, system navigation, gesture navigation.

    Q8) Can I build this rom? Where are the source and kernel source files?
    A8) Yes. The kernel source files are at


    I have attached the repo diff and roomservice.xml file that I have used. The repo diff are all the changes I have made to the "stock" msm8916 code.

    Q9) Where can I download this rom?
    A9) The 2020 builds are at

    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=315153

    I'm moving to sourceforge for all 2021 uploads. The main reason is that I would like to see the stats of where this rom is being downloaded from worldwide. All 2020 builds will remain on androidfilehost.

    2021 builds at
