I'd like to install Cyanogenmod 11 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (GT-P5113), is this currently possible? I see the Rom shows up in Cyanogenmod's Updater.
Previously it wasn't possible.
In short, the previously used set_perms method was deprecated and replaced by set_metadata. Unfortunately, most of available recoveries didn’t allow users to flash these packages properly, and this has resulted in the following error message: set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
But now all major recoveries support
set_metadata_recursive. Just use a version of TWRP newer than 2.7.0
What I did was boot into Download Mode:
- Shut down the tablet.
- Unplug the USB.
- Hold Volume Up and Power.
- Let go of both after it boots and you see it is in Download Mode.
- Plug in USB.
Flash it into the RECOVERY partition,
heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp-3.1.1-0-whatever.img --no-reboot
Now when you boot into Recovery Mode and you're in TWRP you'll see the option to flash the CM11 .zip, or
adb sideload it, which is what I did.
