Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and S 10.5 get official CyanogenMod support

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Android tablet got official CyanogenMod support

The LTE version of the 8.4-inch slate and its WiFi 10.5-inch sibling just got CyanogenMod 12.1 support.

Back in March, the WiFi variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet received CyanogenMod support. Now, its LTE-capable sibling joins the large crowd of CyanogenMod-supported devices, next to the WiFi variant of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Both slates have been around since mid-2014, and official software updates will probably stop by the end of 2016. Fortunately, CyanogenMod can keep them alive much longer than Samsung.

Nightly CyanogenMod builds based on version 12.1 for the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi are now available for download and, although they can be considered official, they might not be the right thing for everyone. These builds usually work well enough for more adventurous users, but the others might consider them unusable for regular use. Just be careful when flashing your device and follow the instructions - even if everything works well, you will void your warranty.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 LTE does not have CyanogenMod support for now but there is no doubt that it will get it. When will that happen, remains to be seen, but most likely in early 2016.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
