As CyanogenMod is no more, this project is abandoned and continues as



This ROM is EXPERIMENTAL and not ready for daily use at the moment


Marked as EXPERIMENTAL, as all uploaded images are untested by compiler, as I don't own the device. (Donations to fix this are welcome )

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community

First I would like to thank the following developers :
I used @CTXz his T710 work and @RaymanFX's T815 image to base this cm 13.0 build on.

Before you start

THIS ROM IS ONLY FOR THE SM-T715 AND UNTESTED BY DEVELOPER

Code:
 *
 * Your warranty will be voided !
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 *

About the ROM

Current state of ROM : EXPERIMENTAL

Everything except what's reported below is working. Nothing 'fixed' yet, first build.

What is Fixed
What is not working

Important
  • Fingerprint scanner not working
  • Camera (needs testing, don't know if that is still the case)
  • LTE module? (untested)

Minor
  • mic not working?

Instructions

How to install CM13.0
  • If you haven't run stock Android 6.x, flash that first with odin. (image won't boot without this step)
  • If you don't have TWRP yet, get it from here : TWRP by ashyx
  • Download the ROM and the Gapps that are located below to your device
  • Reboot into TWRP by holding VOL UP + POWER + HOME on boot
  • In case things go wrong make a backup
  • After the backup has completed return to home and select Wipe and then Advanced Wipe
  • Now ONLY tick Dalvik Cache, System, Data and Cache
  • After ticking those, Swipe below to wipe
  • Once the wipe has completed return to home and select the ROM
  • After you selected the ROM swipe below to install it
  • After the ROM has installed flash the Gapps
  • When all of this is done, reboot into system, wait, and enjoy CM12.1

How to recover from issues

Looks like the reset to recovery (<HOME><VOL-UP><POWER>) is still broken on some or all T810 devices with this build.
  • Press and hold <HOME><VOL-DOWN><POWER> to enter 'download' screen.
  • Select cancel <VOL-DOWN>
  • Immediately press and hold <HOME><VOL-UP><POWER> to enter TWRP
  • Restore back-up made during installation phase
How to ROOT
  • In CM 13.0 Enable the developer options
  • Select Root access
  • Select Apps Only
  • Done

Questions and bug reporting

The following questions will be ignored
  • Inappropriate questions
  • Forced orders, EX. : "PLS FIX!!!!!!"
  • ETA's
  • Often repeated questions usually by the same user
  • Requests that are out of CM's framework (Ex. Adding Samsung Apps)

How to report a bug/issue
  • Explain exactly what happens
  • Mention a log if you can (Please use hastebin or any other paste site to keep the thread clean)
  • If you can't mention a log, explain as precise as possible when, why and where it occurs!

Changelog

I can't state this enough, this build is highly experimental. Don't start with these images unless you know exactly how to recover a device.

I've taken the sources of the T815, added the proprietary-files.txt I use (used the blobs from T715 stock image... these differ from T815), took the dtb.img from the image I have (test, don't know what the difference is with the one in git, diff reports they differ) and copied kernel config for T710. (enough I hope)

I'm very curious if this image boots, as I've copied the method used to transform T810 to T710. As there were loads of questions about a T715 being able to install T815 images, I've went ahead and tried this. Don't start using this image until you're absolutely user about what you're doing. (and how to recover, I expect the first build to fail)

Drat, forgot the rotation of the T815 system.prop. T715 doesn't need it. Will fix that one. (Unexpected)

For the sim, I expect we'll need to be either very lucky or find a developer that has the device to solve this one.

I'm not seeing the 'no network' error. This could explain a bit. Will try a build from scratch.

Recompiled, killed of the system.prop setting which rotates the screen (T810/5 only, don't know why it was there, was sure I had deleted it) and foudn a ril related binary I was using from the T815 build. Replaced that with the T715 one. Upload is running.

Edit: Upload finished, updated OP. Curious if rotation is ok now (should be) and if gsm now works.

Ehm, the cameras are working? I'm curious about the mic. If that works as well, then I can't think of issues the device still has. This would mean the device is ready for nightlies...

Yeah... Front- and Backcam are working... xD Used Soundrec. to test the mic, it's working Will use my other SIM-Card tomorrow to do some Test-Calls and SMS to try that as well.
Some things i noticed so far is that the device seems to be very slow sometimes... Installed just a couple of apps, which took me about half an hour and the Wifi is very slow sometimes. Vibration ist also not working.
And the device is still shown as SM-T815 in the device settings.

But except that it seems to be very stable until now! Once again I'm very impressed

Everything works?

SMS
Calls
Wifi
Rotation
Mic
Speakers

I couldn't test for LTE, didn't check bluetooth either. It feels pretty solid except 2 things.

1. settings is missing the mobile network option to select APN, Mode, etc.
2. it is somewhat sluggish, lags quite often.

I would consider it a daily driver if it weren't for the annoying lag.

Fantastic job!! i've attached some logs, hopefully they can be useful
