LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

ROM Information

Device Names

Any device not on this list is not supported on this thread: If you install firmware from this list onto an unsupported device, any issues are your responsibility entirely, and I am not obligated to help in any way.

Download


If you are completely new to flashing custom ROMs and have no idea how to begin, start by downloading a TWRP image for your device from the link below and flash it using the ODIN tool (see Instructions below). You cannot flash a custom ROM over stock recovery, so downloading a custom recovery is the first thing you will need to do:


ROM Downloads can be found at:


You will probably need to install GApps (Google Apps Suite) as well if you want access to Play Store, and other Google apps. There are two versions:


Instructions



Installation via recovery (TWRP/LineageOS Recovery)
* Download a recent .zip file from the links above for your device.

* Reboot into recovery mode [Press Power+Volume Up+Home].

* Wipe your data and cache partition (equivalent to doing a Factory Reset)
if you are coming from a stock ROM.


* Either: Plug in your phone into your computer, copy the zip file to a location on your Internal or External Storage on a device, click Install on TWRP on your phone and locate the zip file in the phone, or:

* Plug in your phone into your computer, and open Advanced->ADB Sideload on TWRP on your phone and swipe the slider to enter sideload mode.
Then open a command prompt/terminal on your computer in the folder you put the file by Shift-Clicking (Shift+Right Click) and selecting "Open Command Prompt/Terminal Here" (you will need to have adb installed) and type:

adb sideload name_of_zip.zip

to sideload the file. Replace name_of_zip.zip with the name of the file. If you are running Linux you may need to type adb kill-server and use sudo adb sideload if you get an `Insufficient Permissions` error.

* Download and flash GApps in the same way.

Code:
[B]* Install samsung device drivers and then
 the adb utils from here:[/B]

The device supported is the SM-T560NU, aka gtelwifiue.

The device you have is not supported.

The latest gtelwifiue builds are here:
Normal build: https://github.com/Galaxy-MSM8916/releases/releases/tag/lineage-16.0-j14-20181015-NIGHTLY-gtelwifiue
GO build: https://github.com/Galaxy-MSM8916/r...ineage-go-16.0-j1-20181015-NIGHTLY-gtelwifiue
Does anyone know how to quickly sort or search the builds on github? It takes a while to hunt through them.

On the bright side, the latest (non-Go) build is working really well. Other than the Pie recents menu which is just awful... Music playback seems to be fine, they must have fixed that bug. Even my sdcard, which did not work on the Lineagte 15.1 builds, works properly here on 16.0. Great work by the dev team.

This ROM is great. The only problem I've encountered on this and your 15.1 ROM is with the YouTube app. I can load the YouTube app just fine, but it will just try and load any type of feed in the app forever and no videos will ever show up.

I actually fixed my problem. I flashed the latest stock rom for my device, then I reflashed this rom and it is working now.

1. So, " Android 9 (Pie)" or "ROM OS Version: 8.x Oreo" ??
2. Still "RIL (telephony) is broken "? (GO build) Calls/texts - most important for me on my SM-T377P. BTW, installed call app and text app?
