How well does Bluetooth Audio work? Does it make you sound like a Chipmunk?

Is enforcing SELinux supported? Or only permissive?
EDIT: Don't worry I saw the issue tracker post

I don't know, nor do I have the accessories to test it. I would appreciate if you could try it and report back.

Does this fix also apply to the LineageOS 13.x Rom? I need the Front facing camera working, and that works under Marshmellow and not Nougat.

Just wanted to thank you for your hard work and dedication on this ROM project and wish you good luck with the camera as well.

Not that I find the camera on the R1 HD all that useful as it takes pretty lame photos, but the lack of camera is basically the only thing keeping me from ditching Blu software altogether.

I really hope you manage to get a 100% operational LineageOS for the R1 HD.

Yesterday I called Amazon and complained about the software that collected our personal information and data and submitted it to Blu headquarters in China. They said that I could return the phone for a full refund so at this point I am seriously contemplating doing that. The only problem is that I don't have a backup phone.

The lack of resources from MTK based processors is such a deal breaker. I was not aware it would be so difficult to get development going for it when I bought my phone last year.

Now I'm contemplating getting an used phone with better development support after I return my R1 HD.

I really wanted to wait until OnePlus released their new device with a better display and hopefully a near bezel less display and at least IP67 water resistance. That's the reason why I didn't go for the OP5. The upside-down screen was also another one.

If you could get the camera working in LOS than I'd hold on to my R1 HD for a a while longer. But I'm not keeping my hopes up... Just being realistic. Haha!

Thanks again!
