New build for v490

Hello, everyone! There is a new build for v490 this week.

Some people contacted me recently to inform that the last build for v490 (20170409) was not working. Actually, TWRP refused to install it because of some date error. An user has sent me a photo of his device screen and I could see that TWRP informed the date in Brazilian Portuguese format. So I figured out that maybe it had something to do with the fact that I changed Ubuntu language settings recently.

I got back to English and made a new build yesterday. If you had problems installing the 20170409 build, try installing this new one: lineage-14.1-20170505-UNOFFICIAL-v490.zip

If anything goes wrong again, just leave a comment below.

Happy flashing 🙂

    Anything new on this build except the date format?

  2. Yiakub says:

    When this rom will probably be Official?

    • just says:

      To make it official, we need someone to be its maintainer. This person must have some knowledge in porting/maintaining ROMs and must own a v490 to test changes. I only have a v480, so, I cannot be its maintainer.

    Can’t even go past the setup wizard because it keeps crashing. I officially give up on this ROM since it makes my tablet mostly unusable. Good try, but I need my tablet in tip-top shape.

    • Lukas says:

      Same here. Nice try, but ROM is still too unstable and buggy for everyday use. I’m going back to kitkat stock rom soon. I will, however, check this blog for any changes, hope that this project will go further and won’t get abondoned. Kudos to creator for doing this.

      • just says:

        Thanks for the kudos. 🙂

        I can’t fix all bugs in v490 because I don’t have this device. I hope someone who has it can continue my work (I have done everything needed to port LineageOS, now we need someone to fix bugs). Anyway, I’ll still making monthly builds.

      I heard that some Open Gapps ZIPs (the ones that have Google Setup Wizard) are crashing. Try using a recent GApps file.

    Hi, I have the problem of installation, what I did was install if the gapps and I could install the rom works quite well but with the small problem of wifi I hope it can be solved since it is the only ROM that is available for this tablet Thank you very much for everything and a great job this rom

    Hi!

    I have tried this ROM and I have a problem with capital letters. I choose to lock capital letter with the keyboard and it doesn’t work.

    Thank you for this ROM.

    Regards

    Thank you for this great ROM! Battery life is fantastic with it!

    A few questions:
    – compass sensor doesn’t seem to work, tested with SatStat. Is it easy to fix?
    – device has no light sensor, right? Can it be emulated?
    – I tried to build a ROM using these instructions: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/v480/build but failed at breakfast step. Can you share your procedure please?
    – I have a requirement to enable bluetooth audio sink, any idea if it’s possible with this device and ROM?

    Thank you!
    Felix

      Hi.

      – Just checked and it is really not working. I realized that GPS is not working also. Gonna check.
      – If you mean a luminosity sensor, it doesn’t and I don’t know if it is possible to emulate.
      – I use the same procedure as described in wiki. Make sure you have installed all the necessary tools.
      – If you mean to use the tablet as an audio sink, I’ve never tried this before. Didn’t even know it was possible in such device.

    Hi

    I saw a new build of 05/06/2017. Did yo nanage to fix wifi bug? Wich is the changelog?

    Thank you for this ROM.

  8. Morganismo says:

    Wi-Fi is working fine for me on this ROM. (05/06/2017)
    I installed it 3 days ago and it auto connects every time I turn on the screen.

  9. Morganismo says:

    Maybe it has to do with changes of the Lineage build itself? Or did you compile the same build on this Rom? It has never felt to auto connect for dozens of times I did it in the last 3 days.

    • just says:

      Maybe it is related to changes in LineageOS source, I always sync my local repo before building.

  10. Nike Air Max says:

    5.06.17 v490 – For me wifi autoconnection is not work. And 3D drivers are slower than stock. I don’t use LTE, so I don’t know if it works. ROM is stable with polish language. I’m waiting for updates. v490 is a good device.

  11. George says:

    I have the WiFi bug with rom 05/06/2017. If someone have the same problem, meanwhile not exist a definitive fix I solved the bug with an external wifi connecting app like “WiFi Prioritizer”

  12. kornis says:

    Hi,

    I have v490. What do I need to make this ROM Official? Maybe you can provide some URLs where i can read sth about it?

    • just says:

      To make it official, someone must offer to be responsible for its updates and bug fixes. Do you have good Linux, Android and C/C++/Java programming skills?

  13. kornis says:

    Hi,

    I have v490, so if you want something to test please feel free ans send me an email

  14. dosiaPL says:

    Can you add to karnel, charge and OTG same time?
    It’s really great ROM. I use this rom on my dashboard tablet in my car.
    I have only one problem with battery, I must everyday take tablet and charge in my house.
    I’m waiting for updates. v490 is a good device if you use your ROM.
    Sorry my english is no good.

    • just says:

      OTG is already supported (at least on v480, I can’t test v490).

    • just says:

      Sorry, now I just realized you meant to charge and use OTG at same time. To make this possible, I need an adapter that can charge and enable OTG at same time.

      • Dosiapl says:

        I was trying to use an adapter that can charge and enabled OTG at same time but always only otg. Without charge. I used OTG Y cable with 5v 5A charger and similar adapter: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LTHBCNM . Always only OTG witchout charge. I’m Electronic engineer, so trust me, I know what I do.
        I’ m electronic, but i can’t building rom and karnel, so I do not know where the problem is.
        My windows tablet work with my adapter. Charge and otg at same time. Have you any idea?
