  • Sir up to twrp recovery mode it is working fine. but once i start to flashing the Omni 5.0.2 ROM it shows error. it prompts me that file system on your device is not supporting. and says cant mount System and Data.

  • Thanks for your rom and detailed instruction. I installed the 5.0.2 Lollipop ROM on Galaxy Tab P1000 , I perviously had Overcome Flashed on it and work very well. My Lollipop install went smoothly following the instructions and no errors occured, however it is very slow to respond . If you tap an icon it takes about 3 sec to open same if you open google chrome . It is also slow to connect to wifi and start up time take twice as long than before . Would you have a solution , How do i get it to boot up onto the home page as currently in open to phone Thanks Maurice . AUST

    • Hey, do you still have this ROM installed on your tablet? This slowness problem when opening applications and to boot is the only problem you are having with this ROM, right? I’m asking this because I’m thinking about installing it on the tablet as well. I think that to solve this problem you need to disable the background applications in the Developer Settings menu. Also blocking applications that start with the system should help. Slowness was already to be expected in this tablet because it is running an 2014/15 system on a tablet with single core processor with half a gigabyte of RAM. So that’s it, I’m waiting for reply, bye.

  • Hi, thank you for your explanation, finally I got it!!! But I have a problem, GAPPS can’t be installed by architectural problems. Do you have a solution? Thanks!!!

  • Sheikh saaab, Can you do it with my Tab as well…. My daughter has gone bonkers coz youtube does not work….

  • 2018-august this small device still running, but it could not keep up with OS actually. So I said give this a go or it is useless anyway. It was somewhat confusing over what external card really means, is it external card you plug in yourself or internal card, as it was complaining that I am not doing something right in that direction. Also I could not manage to backup IMEI… (none of the above worked) so I just kept repeating steps and… it worked. I could not manage to install anything more than pico version of Gapps but who cares. Battery got up in temperature by a few degrees, that is all that I have noticed. Generally it works better. Got me phone back. Why am I not buying a new one with I do not know how more advanced options? Because I am not sure if it would stay for 8 long years with me. btw I do have another one, S8+, and could not care less about that one to be honest. For some reason PT 1000 is still just perfect.

  • Hi,
    First: Great article. Thanks for that! However, I have problems flashing the 5.0 OS. Flashing 4.4. works perfeclty but for 5.0 I get the message that the zio file cannot be installed. Is there an advice you have for me?
    Thanks.

  • See a reply from a month ago so hopefully you see this.
    My tab is gt-p1000n not p1000
    Will this work even though mine has the n?
    My biggest hurdle is I can not see the tab on laptop. Work around for this?
    Thanks. Hope to hear from someone.
    Don’t need this but just found this while cleaning sons room and enjoy learning.

    • Sorry to say, but unfortunately this works only on GT-P1000. Thanks for your comment though. Have a nice day 🙂
