LineageOS needs no introductions. This version of LineageOS-12.1 is a highly customised version solely for the Amazon Fire 7"

- EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: As of January 2019 this ROM only works on devices using the bootloader hack. See <<< HERE >>> to unlock your devices.

- IMPORTANT: Do not update Magisk via the Magisk Manager App, your device will enter a bootloop if you do. Instead update Magisk via TWRP only. If you do this by accident then it is recoverable by just flashing the latest version of the ROM again (with gapps etc as required).

Rules
- Please search the thread before asking questions
- Please try to stay on topic, I know it's not always possible
- Please report bugs here
- Report only one issue per bug report
- When reporting bugs please post a logcat and/or dmesg containing pertinent information regarding the issue...

Prerequisites for Installation
- Unlocked Bootloader
- TWRP Installed

Clean flashed this pup w/GAaps Nano and Xposed Framework. Disabled journaling for giggles & grins. Using integrated root manager. Connected and booted up w/o a hitch. Far to early for definitive statements but every operation I have attempted during the past 30 min (mostly set-up stuff, installing apps, configuring Xposed modules, multiple reboots) has gone without a hitch. Hoping to find time for detail testing this weekend. While partial to AOSP ROMs I do find Lineage to be an attractive offering with a nice suite of UI enhancements baked in.

So far while setting it up, Settings crashed just once opening Home but hasn't crashed again. Sadly, automatic LiveDisplay does not work here as well (didn't work in the past October CM build I had), you have to manually toggle it. I just finished setting everything up. The rest is working like a stable build so far. Will let you know if something happens down the line.

What I did:
- Clean flashed thru TWRP
- Flashed the kernel modules, micro OpenGApps, Xposed & V4A
- Cleared journaling from /data & /cache
- Turned off KSM and set up the I/O Sched and governor with Kernel Adiutor
- Slimmed up the ROM and the GApps (current TWRP unable to run AROMA)

I did the
Fresh installation from FireOS or other ROM FlashFire >= 0.57 coming from CM12.1
During the flashing, there were errors of couldn't unmount system, resource busy and things like that.
Now my tablet is stuck on the amazon logo. ;(

I guess i had the same error about two weeks ago while going from cm to RR. If you can access stock recovery you need to sideload the original fireos version your tab was running before you installed a costum Rom. There is a tuturial here on xda, can't look for the link right now.

Couple thoughts:
- inability of LiveDisplay to switch automatically is common to most CM/LOS 12.1 builds, especially on devices that lack a physical GPS or do not utilize Google Location Services in 'High Accuracy' mode; seems the function uses location vs the clock to to determine on/off times
- custom kernel modules are not demonstrated to work with this ROM although there is absolutely no reason to believe there will be any conflicts

Another hour of configuration/use did not surface any gremlins. I am always surprised how snappy this device can be under the right conditions given modest specs. Hardware definately likes the deadline scheduler augmented with a 5 sec write delay. Tweaking animation scales under developer options also has a nice effect. Lineage hummed through all that and more without glitching.

Other notes: WiFi connects/disconnects reliably. ROM sleeps as it should with minimal idle drain. Rotation fast and reliable. Bluetooth uneventful.

This weekend I will push a little harder on various apps that sometimes upset the applecart. Given experiences to date not expecting any issues.

LiveDisplay, as I have come to understand requires modification to the kernel. So will be a no-go unless we find a vulnerability to exploit.

Gotcha. Minor stuff but do you remember that old image distortion whenever you turned off the screen? It's been a long while since I had a ROM with that and it's rearing its head again sometimes here.

Even with a kernel mod auto behavior may still be erratic without the benefit of full location services if numerous user reports are accurate. Apparently goes beyond simply obtaining sunset/rise info for current location as most phones secure the proper time/zone via network.

Yes, I remember that screen issue, will be fixed in the next release.

I forgot to tell you that it looks like the SDcard fix is not implemented. Several apps gave me trouble, including Titanium Backup (for write purposes) until I applied the SDcard Fix. I have all my backups in my microSD card.
