I root my fire hd 8 7th gen successfully but i wont ask that there is any lineage rom for this device???
I've just uploaded R10, which includes better support for Oreo devices and kernels compiled with stack protection, such as on Nokia phones. It's also much more reliable in getting root and changing selinux due to retrying the unreliable steps multiple times.
Needs testing on 32-bit kernel devices
I've included a binary that runs on 32-bit (armv7) kernels, which is the one in armv7-kernel. But it is not "activated" yet, meaning it will print output but not change anything on your system. Since I can't test it myself, it would be more likely to destabilize your device than give you root. I need people to post the output so I can make proper support for those kernels. In the future, I'll probably combine that binary and the arm one into one executable. Thanks!
Note for testing: If it hangs for more than a few seconds, just press Ctrl+C to close it. If it doesn't want to close, then restart your device.
I happened to just download R10, it failed a couple times before I went back to an older version on my PC(R7). I didn't realize that you had a posted a version just now or I would have posted before using R7.
R10 - HD10 2017: tablet reboot after finish running ./mtk-su -v
@mobaddict, good to know mtk-su works on that phone. You can check what's mounted on /system with
mount | grep /system
If the line says something like /dev/block/dm-0, then it's dm-verity. You can also open the fstab.mtxxxx file located in your root directory and see if there's a 'verify' flag in the line that mounts /system. But even without checking, that is probably the reason you can't remount the partition. That's a decently recent phone. Most of them do have it enabled...
