LineageOS needs no introductions. This version of LineageOS-14.1 is a highly customised version solely for the Amazon Fire 2019 (mustang)

- IMPORTANT: 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

Known Issues
- Build new vendor.img done!
- Local video file playback not working
- Vertical Sync needs debugging fixed!

Prerequisites for Installation
- Unlocked Bootloader
- TWRP Installed

Initial Installation
- Enter TWRP
- Enter wipe option
- Format Data
- Then swipe to factory reset
- Copy the ROM to your device
- Copy optional zips like gapps and magisk to device if required
- Flash ROM, then optional zips
- Reboot
- And Enjoy :D

Upgrading to a new version
- Copy the ROM to your device
- Flash ROM
- If you use Magisk then be sure to flash that again too.
- And Enjoy :D

Curious if LOS 14.1 variant will be back ported to unlocked Ford and/or Austin? Assume not (perhaps due to older kernel) but wanted to verify.

I flashed this on my tablet and it works great for the most part. The vertical sync issue is annoying but on some media playback it seems non-existant. The biggest issue I've had so far is that for some reason the tablet appears to die. Every now and then it stops responding to the power button and the display just stays off. Connecting the charger does charge it but nothing comes to life. I have to force shut it down and restart it, and it works again.

It might be missing /firmware/md32_p.bin and md32_d.bin.

Traffic not routed through Open VPN tunnel

Hi @ggow,
first of all, thanks a lot for your effort in bringing lineage to mustang. A working custom rom was the only reason for me to purchase an amazon fire :)
I followed @xyz post to unlock (thanks a lot for that by the way) and flashed your lineage rom.
I used OpenVPN Connect to connect to a vpn server and even though, the connection seems to be successfully established (OpenVPN Connect indicates a successful connection) , traffic is not routed through the vpn tunnel. When visiting different whats-my-ip sites, the "real" ip address is revealed. Please find the logs here: https://privatebin.net/?e1bc0fbde46a0809#CXvsF8SjyjwsqL1CXt6uLu5QAVAg9QKRF21JSxNLssFa

Is anyone experiencing the same problem?

Thanks and regards,
Chris

Same here for both the random black screen problem and the VPN issue. I'm connected to NordVPN, but my IP shows my actual location.

Thanks for the reports, I'll look into the VPN issue and the power issue. I included the md32p and md32d software but suspect that code is not running for some reason and causing the power/blank screen issue.

Thanks for this! So far everything is working ok. But yeah, a lot of screen tearing with Chrome, etc. Otherwise its pretty cool though!

    New Build is Up

    Dated 25 August 2019
    - Graphical aspects now smooth as silk
    - Now building vendor image, will be flashed as part of the main ROM
    - No more complaining on reboot about vendor image

    Notes:
    - Let me know if sleep of death occurs, it shouldn't because it seemed to be cause by the graphics engine not working correctly which has now been fixed. However that been said, need more testing to confirm.

    I've got a new motherboard and processor and the hardware looks good now.

    I went for a threadripper 24 core 2970wx this time. In theory should build a ROM in 7 minutes with ccache.

    Should be up and running by the end of the coming week.
