Tab 2 7.0 Lollipop and GAPPS problem

    I tried to upgrade my ancient Tab 2 7.0 P-3100 this evening. Haven't used it in years.

    Went for a Cyanogen 13 Marshmallow mod, which works, but makes the old tablet as clogged as an 80 year old on a diet of bread. It's taken up all the memory and storage of the tablet. Utterly useless.

    I'd like to try Lollipop. I've downloaded CM12.1 version, but can't find a GAPPS version that will load properly.

    Can anyone help? I'm looking all over for a veriosn that'll work.

    I've stupidly deleted my old 4.2. installations, and can't roll back to an old version.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Thanks for that. Works a treat!

    However, the o/s fills up my entire tablet's memory, so I'm going to need to roll back to CM 11!

    Can you recommend a good, stable CM version of Kit Kat 4.4 that will work with those apps?

    I just tried to install omni-4.4.4-20150520-p3100-FINAL and it was having none of it!

    On that same site I linked, there's access to open Gapps v4. 4.. might work better than using OmniROM Gapps for a non-Omni OS.

    Yeah, that's all good, but I can't find a stable version of CM 11 that doesn't crash on loading up. Tried around four.

    Is there a sticky thread, or central knowledge base or thread of downloads? I am looking, but am coming up blank.

    there used to be....back in the day.....over at xda. these things get harder to find as the device gets older and android keeps getting updates.

    Ok, I give up. Happy to go back to a loadable KitKat rom and GAPPS.

    Any idea where to start? I've posted on XDA. I can't find anything that works off the net.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    no idea on where you can find them.....maybe try and message one of the developers over at xda......mainly the ones who made tab 2 roms back in the day, and ask them if they know of anything or have anything you can use.
