  1. I have an sm-t810 and am looking for a pie ROM. I want a LineageOS room if it is available. This article says this ROM download will work on the T810 and T813. This does not seem correct since the 810 is 32 bit and the 813 is 64 bit.

    Can you clarify this ROM will work on the 32 bit T810 built in 2015? Thanks.

    • Thank you for the detailed feedback. Yes, you are correct. The above method will work only with Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 Processor-based tablet. Clearly, we can say the Codename is gts210vewifi. It will not work well with gts210wifi. Thank you. We updated the article.

  2. Hi Selva, unfortunately, I was not working for my like expected. I was looking for a hint from your side.
    I did follow your approach as well as the Heimdall / adb sideload plan on the LineageOS WIKI page, but for both methods, I get at a certain point the message on my SM-T813 that packages …
    “E: failed to verify the whole-file signature.”
    as well as
    “E: signature verification failed”
    Successfully verify for dm-verity hash tree
    Installation aborted.$1
    Same for Build 20200324 as well as for 20200424! I had done above with three different USB-cables!
    Thanks for sharing your ideas, MarkusHi Selva, unfortunately

    • Most of the time, adb methods won’t work with Samsung devices as expected. Try with their recent lineage-16.0-20200404. They made some cluster changes. Maybe it will work. You should wipe your system too when installing Custom ROMs.

      • Thanks, Selva, I have leveraged lineage-16.0-20200404 and did WIPE (Cache & data reset). Any other ideas?!
        Thanks for your suggestions, Markus

        • Found the issue, had ONLY unlocked „USB Debugging Mode, “but NOT „OEM Unlock“!
          Now, the installation went fine!
          Thanks and stay healthy, Markus

  3. Thanks, this was really helpful although there were a few problems. In dev options, I had to turn off validation for FRP lock to install the bootloader. I had problems flashing ROM and ultimately had to format the device. Then once Lineage was running, the startup to bring data over wouldn’t work. It took a few hours but ultimately got it sorted. It wasn’t as easy as this guide made it look.
