Q&A

Q : Why does it say Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 on Android File Host if this is for the 8.0 version ?
A : Android File Host doesn't feature the 8.0 version in their devices. Because of that, all is located under a folder called 8.0

Q : Why is everything so small?
A : The DPI rate is 320 which is the same as on the Stock rom. However, Samsung has made everything bigger. Since this is personal preference, you may always higher your DPI to make things bigger or lower your DPI to make things smaller under Settings > Display > DPI

Q : Will you ever work on CM13?
A : Yes, once we feel like CM12 is good enough, we will move to CM13

Can't wait to use this once it reaches a point where it's functional for everyday use! Excellent work so far!

So the sensor module just isn't loading.

Code:
I/        ( 3857): System server: starting sensor init.
D/SensorService( 3857): nuSensorService starting...
E/HAL     ( 3857): load: module=/system/lib/hw/sensors.exynos5.so
E/SensorService( 3857): couldn't load sensors module (Invalid argument)
I/        ( 3857): System server: sensor init done.
Tried to use the note 4 ones. They did load up successfully but use different drivers.

Ex the gyroscope uses ICM20610 where mine uses LSM6DS3. I really only came this far. My nightmare would be to make my own sensor libs. That would mean that I would have to learn lot's of lot's of coding!

Sadly those are for the kernel.

However,
I found this open source sensor for the s3 I9300 that uses a , what I believe, older version of the gyro found in our device. I will see what I can decompile/reverse out of the current module for the tab and will compare it with the open source ones for the I9300. This will be hard and I would be very thankfull if you could redict any expierienced dev you know, here
