CM11 ported to Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 SM-T900

It took Cyanogen mod guys some time to bring it to the SM-T900 but it is finally here. The cm-11 ROM is very snappy and responsive, there is no reason not to use it as a daily driver. Before flashing it’s recommended to update to TWRP


– IR blaster problem apparently solved with Bonuzzz’s new kernel, non-verified
– Lid sensor – solved with Bonuzzz’s new kernel, verified.

The boot image will stay idle for a couple of minutes at start-up, just be patient, once the cm logo is seen it will run smooth. Xposed Framework might need re-initialization after each boot, which is common for all CyanogenMod ROM’s.

This is an AOKP ROM, why you also need to install gapps (set of packages – full, mini, micro, nano, pico).
