Samsung Galaxy Note 8 GT-N5110 isn't supported anymore at LineageOS.

Last version seems to be

OK, keep receiving an error everytime I do file management type of work.

"MTP Host has stopped" tried different versions of Android, versions 7.1.2, 6.0.1 and even other custom roms.

When I go back to Android 5.1.1 from CM then the messages goes away. So I am going to see if there is a fix somewhere for this. As I really would like to be running a newer version of Android.


Go on device and put in developer mode, find and give root access.

On your workstation with adb software installed.

  • adb shell
  • su
  • mount -o rw,remount /system
  • rm -rf /system/priv-app/MtpDocumentsProvider
  • reboot

I haven't seen the MTP error since I have done this fix.


So I updated my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 GT-N5110 to Android 7.1.2 from LineageOS. This device hadn't been updated in a long time.

How is it working. So far everything seems to be working great except the"MTP Host has stopped" problem. Which seems to be fixed with the fix above.

This is what I had to do to get it setup. Set 2 and 3 are done one time. Step 1 can be done anytime there is a update to the firmware.

    1. Download and copy LineageOS and gapps to SD card. By either the adb command or by copying over to SD card. At the root of the SD card. I copied over to the SD card from my computer. I have also tried the adb command to copy over to the tablet. In fact adb command is one I am using all the time now.

      $ adb push /sdcard/

      $ adb push /sdcard/

    2. Setup Odin on my Windows 7 Workstation. Downloaded from and make sure to update Windows 7 device driver. You might see a Gadget Serial. You should see a Samsung USB Composite Device show up under USB devices when you connect your tablet. All I did was click on Gadget Serial and then update driver. Then it updated to Samsung USB Composite Device.
    3. Install a new custom recovery rom. Downloaded from or, Use Odin utility to install. Set AP to custom recovery rom download location and make sure tablet is in Download mode. Volume Down + Power button. then connect tablet to computer with USB cable.
  1. When starting tablet again, Hold the Volume Up + Power buttons.
    • Select Wipe and then Advanced Wipe.
    • Select CacheSystem and Data partitions to be wiped and then Swipe to Wipe.
    • Go back to return to main menu, then select Install.
    • Navigate to /sdcard, and select the LineageOS .zip package.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to install the package.
    • Install the gapps package using the same method, make sure to do this before restarting.
  2. Once it is done Reboot tablet.
  3. It should start up like a new tablet, setup and the way you go.
