  1. So I am trying to install V4A on a Samsung Tab 2 10.1 wifi running Lineage. However, i am unable to get it work appropriately. I've installed busy box and drivers, but can't find the lines that need to be changed. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

  2. Hey guys I was following the steps on how to install it and couldn't find the lines in the build.prop so I skipped it I did every step right but every time I install the driver and reboot when I first open it it shows the same message of the driver installation. Any suggestions on what I should do to make it work?
