    Thread Lawnchair and the Java "path must be convex" error

    My new Fire HD 8 2018 makes the fifth device I've flashed LineageOS to and it was by far the least exasperating experience of the five. Unlocking, rooting and the flashing all were remarkably-drama free, unlike all of the previous four, and I am very happy with the way it turned out. I even...

    Falcon342, the "Thanks" button appears to be non-present so I'll have to resort to the old-fashioned method. Thank you for the hand-holding. Without your guidance I'd still be stuck in analysis paralysis. And thanks also to Kaijones23 for the excellent ROM. I haven't found anything yet (that...

    On first boot after flashing this ROM I'm getting (red) Trust - System Security alerts in the notification area of the Home Screen. When I open the Trust app/widget, it shows SELinux in red (as Disabled) and Encryption in red (as Disabled), but it also offers buttons to allow me to turn off...

    Once I used the proper button technique, it booted to TWRP. And I'm sorry to have to ask this but I'm overwhelmed by the details on the first page about bricking and unbricking, but if TWRP loads, I should be ready to load the custom ROM, yes? And should I flash Magisk immediately or wait...

    I got a brand-new, unmodded 8th Gen Fire HD 8 / Fire OS 6.3.0.0 to root. Next I ran "sudo ./fireos-step.sh", which terminated with 'Rebooting to TWRP' but it's boot-looping to the Amazon logo. "adb devices" doesn't 'see' it and if I hold the left side of the volume button it shows "=> RECOVERY...

    Post G7 won't boot without stopping at FastBoot screen

    WHOOAAAA!!!! That fixed it. Now it boots to wherever I tell it, every time. Thank you so much for that, sd_shadow! The fastboot screen is still messed up but that's purely cosmetic, nothing to affect the functionality, and that's much easier to live with that the way it was.

    Post G7 won't boot without stopping at FastBoot screen

    That doesn't appear to be an option. Since new the only way I've been able to flash any factory image was by extracting it and fastboot flashing the individual files (same method as used to restore boot locking). Now that isn't working either.

    Thread G7 won't boot without stopping at FastBoot screen

    I'm usually able to get my G7 to boot to system or recovery but it never gets there without stopping at the FastBoot screen. If I command it from the system to reboot to recovery, it stops at the FastBoot screen. But if I command it to boot to recovery from fastboot, it goes straight there...

    Thread "Powered by LineageOS" boot.bin?

    I seem to recall that I once saw a custom logo.bin for the G7 that bore the label, "Powered by LineageOS" but at the time I wasn't running LOS so I didn't note where I'd seen it. You can figure the rest. Now I'm (back to) running LOS and I'd like to get rid of the annoying "can't be trusted"...

    This probably is naive or ignorant (or both) but now that I'm on LOS 17.1 with LOS recovery, I can't figure out how to make a Nandroid backup or clear a cache. Is either possible with LOS recovery? I ask because I understood TWRP recovery was never going to be available for Android 10.

    Thank you for that. The phone is a Moto G7, stock ROM. But I just noted that Magisk's 'Preserve dm-verity' feature is disabled and when checked disables itself every time the app is minimized or closed. Does the Smali patcher rely on this setting being enabled?

    There are a couple of features in the stock ROM that I do not find in AEX but that I would really like to have, specifically Moto Display's Peek Display and Attentive Display.

    Two questions. 1. As a non-developer/bottom feeding user planning to install TWRP along with LineageOS, is there any reason I wouldn't want to install TWRP permanently? 2. Is it preferable to flash TWRP before LineageOS or should I change ROMs first? Or does it matter?
