I (luckily) had this tablet from 2014 (Galaxy Tab 2) with unlocked bootloader, so everything was good except me being paranoid about something that I also call EXPERIMENTAL :rofl:
Rooted it with One-click root method, installed TWRP APP, flashed recovery, and then flash ROM :joy:

Point taken.


You’re lucky. I stopped rooting devices when I bricked a Compaq iPaq handheld installing trying to install a Linux ROM. I think it was maybe 2003?

Thanks, I see things like texLive, texCalc… I don’t know if they are related, but I have never known how to use them

In I dunno how many years, I’ve never used it. And for 35 years I wrote highly specialized professional documents for a living. :smiley:

SEO docs?, I’ll try learn Tex… but at this point in my life I don’t see the point :joy:
