I'd like to think of myself as knowing more than the average bear when it comes to tech, but I know I'm out of my league when it comes to customizations. Consequently, I've bee afraid to make the jump with any of my devices.
Today, I inherited an 8GB Samsung tab 2 7.0. This little train that could is from 2012, and quite a bit outdated in software along with comparably slow. A bit of talk about switching OS with jFive in IRC got me thinking, why not try it with the tablet - this would be a perfect playing ground to get my feet in the water. The hope is to start here, then once I'm comfortably in-the-know, get one on my phone (Galaxy S7), and ultimately my laptop (Macbook Pro from '14) - thankfully I have a bit to look into here with the talk of Mint and Debian recently.
So, I've been doing a small bit of reading up here and wanted y'all's opinion for the tab (later phone) figuring we a few that've dabbled in the world of custom ROMs here. Things to look out for? Recommendations? ROMs to steer clear of? Based on the article, I'm currently looking more into PAC-ROM and CyanogenMod. The latter of the two I vaguely remember playing around with a long time ago.
