There are risks involved with installing customs, and if you do not do the right thing, you may end up with an unusable phone. Save all your data beforehand. Neither AndroidPIT nor I can be held responsible for anything.

This version is in the development phase, the version may still have a lot of bugs, and its installation and use is reserved for a public of connoisseurs.

For now, the screen capture (screenrecord) does not work. OmniRom also does not offer a multi-center mode.


  • Charge the tablet up to at least 80%
  • Know your model number exact (you find this one in the settings > About the tablet).
  • The installation entails the loss of the data, save everything beforehand!
