Thanks. I tried this with my rooted Fire HD8 2018, but when I connect the tablet to Windows PC, it doesn't show up as a device on the PC. Instead, the Fire says it's connected to a low power charger.

You going to have to extract your firmware from the zip and take the framework out of the system and manually put it back on your tablet through TWRP. Or you're going to have to reflash back to stock firmware and start all over again.

I just flashed Lineage to it. I just thought I'd post in here to let people know there are potential issues with this modification.

That happened to me, too. It took me a couple of tries - OK, maybe four LOL - going through steps 0-9 before I got it right. Once you can boot to TWRP with the volume down button you are most of the way there. From there you can reflash 6300 and Magisk. Good luck.

I can confirm that there are issues with this modification. I attempted to install this by replacing the file with a custom magisk module. This only resulted in the infinite booting OS problem that others above have described. After disabling the module, every single non-system app on my device lost permissions and had to be reinstalled.

Has anyone confirmed this working with LineageOS 14.1 on the HD8? I have tried a modded framework-res.apk and infinite loop for me too.
