Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Would be great to install /e/ on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A.

Thanks.

Which version of the Tab A? I have an unofficial R build currently on my Tab A 2016 :slight_smile:

It’s a TAB A 2019 (SM-T290). Android 10 on it.

Oh my one is the T580, im not sure if there are any unofficial builds out there. I had @itsclarence build the version i have, maybe he could build a version for you.

Start @ XDA and search for a Lineage os derived custom for your device:

I’ll check it out thanks. But I’d rather stick with /e/ personally…

\e\ is based on LineageOS so, if it’s available, building is easily achiveable.

Hello, I own a T580 and I’m looking for a /e/OS rom, would you mind sharing?
Also, I’m new to this OS but is it common to share build scripts and sources? I would like to experiment on it too.

Thank you,

Yes, it’s normal :slight_smile: Lots of users on this forum have experience building /e/ ROMs, and are happy to share their experiences, their build problems and solutions, and to offer help and advice to others. That’s one reason why /e/OS is now supported (officially or unofficially) on so many devices

There are Lineage 17.1 and 18.1 ROMs for these devices on XDA Forums.

If I wanted to build for this device, I would use the Lineage 18.1 ROM. The developer’s manifest is available in their github repo so building for /e/ should be relatively straightforward.

There are plenty of posts on how to build /e/ in this forum. I have also written a wiki post based on my experiences building /e/ ROMs. I mostly build for Sony devices, but there are several people here who build for Samsung devices, and will know about - and be happy to share - the peculiarities of working with them.

Good luck, and have fun!

I’m using the 18.1 ROM and noticed that it’s querying

connectivitycheck.gstatic.com.
www.google.com.
time.android.com.
play.googleapis.com.

as soon as the wifi is enabled, and since I’m blocking all google IPs from a firewall some things are a bit broken (I think it goes in some power save mode with the wifi). I’m looking forward to yeet some of those nuisances from the OS, if it’s doable :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ll try, thank you for the links :pray:

Hi, @minunim,

The SM-T580 is already supported
