CyanogenMod 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is now available for many Android devices including the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-T217S variant. If you have been using the Android operating system for a while, then you probably already know about the CyanogenMod firmware. It is one of the best and most popular custom ROMs available for Android and various other ROMs use CyanogenMod as their base.
CM12.1 is currently the unofficial Custom ROM for SM-T217S released by the recognized xda developer DarkFrenz. Almost all basic features are working except a few minor bugs. In this post I will guide using the step-by-step instructions how to safely install CyanogenMod 12.1 for the Galaxy Tab 3 using the TWRP recovery.
Follow these tips before flashing any custom ROM.
- Make sure that your tab is charged to at least 70%.
- All your phone’s data will be deleted so backing up all your important stuff is the right thing to do.
- Follow all the instructions from the ROM’s developer carefully. You’ll see the instructions on the ROM’s XDA thread.
