LineageOS needs no introductions. This version of LineageOS-14.1 is a highly customised version solely for the Amazon Fire HD10

- EVEN MORE 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 containing pertinent information regarding the issue...
- Saying something isn't working without proper explanation will not attract any attention.

Known Issues
- Wired headphones do not work
- Camera does not work
- OMX is only partially working

Prerequisites for Installation
- Clean installation is required coming from lineage-12.1

Amazing, you are the man! Thanks! Lots of stuff already working nicely. The only thing I noticed in a quick test is video playback not working, Netflix won't even start, and YouTube just shows black screen.

Edit: WiFi also still drops occasionally, just like on CM 12.1.

I'm having a couple issues already. i dirty flashed over 12.1. installed magisk, then xposed-v89-sdk25-arm64.zip, and open_gapps-arm64-7.1-nano-20190926.zip.

Not Working:
1. Home and Recent buttons do not work. Does not work in navigation bar or in other apps such as LMT and FNG (Fluid Navigation Gestures)
2. when I open Solid Explorer, I get "requested file was not found. Path: /storage/sdcard1
3. Can't get into Developer Mode. Nothing shows up when I tap.
4. the Play Store does not download at all. it just keeps pending.
5. Plex does not work.

Working:
1. USB C Headphones (Earpods) w/ 2 adapters.
2. Amazon Prime Video does work but very choppy. Unwatchable.
3. YMusic. (gets a choppy slightly)

Update: I did a clean install and so far it's working much better. I'll have to reinstalll all my apps and test the rest later.

TLDR: DO A CLEAN INSTALL. a dirty flash from 12.1 will give you problems.

Looks like a clean install is the way forward coming from another ROM.

That's the conclusion I came to. The major issue is video playback. I'll start looking into that shortly.

Great to see Nougat coming to Fire HD10. Thanks!
Just have to unlock my bootloader and will give this a try.

Quick question: if it doesn't work as I expect, can I revert back to stock ROM without any problems?

If you have an unlocked bootloader and TWRP installed you can make a backup of your fireOS and then try any rom you want. If not satisfied you can restore fireOS. Go back to locked bootloader with stock rom is also possible (but why?).

PS: There is also a fully working Lineage 12.1 if you won't wait for video playback.

@retora Thank you. Tablet wasn't unlocked yet. Just manually debloated and rooted Stock ROM. But not many important things on it, so a factory reset wasn't that much of a headache.

Did the bootloader unlock, no problems at all. After it flashed this 14.1 ROM, GApps and Magisk. So far it seems to work really nice. I am just setting it up and will play around a bit.
Yeah, I saw that there is a 12.1, but I am sure @ggow will get the video playback working soon.

Is the download delay in playstore still present? This seems to be the most important issue as I learned in the 12.1-thread. :)

One new issue I noticed (was working fine on CM 12.1) is that I can't set up the Gmail app. It asks me to add an account, but if I try to add my Google account it tells me the account is already present on the device. Other Google apps like Photos work fine.

I did do wipe (but no data format) before installing the ROM, and I installed the pico gapps together with the ROM.

Haven't experienced any delay with the Playstore. First I installed some benchmarks to compare it with the Stock ROM. Seems to be 4-5% faster than the Stock ROM, if I look at the average of the benachmarks I used.

Just did an update to all apps for which an update was available via Store (YouTube, Google, Photos) - started downloading right after clicking on "Update all". No delay either with starting the next app after updating the first one.

So far I am very satisfied. Gonna try some bluetooth devices and see how they behave.

Grant gmail app permissions and all will be good.

Any idea why I can't install Google Play Games?
Did a fresh install of the ROM with GApps mini. The Games app is downloaded by the store but fails to install with a general "The app can't be installed" message.

    Project is definitely not dead. There is a lot of activity from various people since I have been absent. Hope everyone has had a good Christmas and wish everyone a great new year.

    Things should start settling down for me in the new year, hopefully by the end of the first quarter.

    @ggow Any news about the new build with working OMX?

    Not had a chance to do anything as yet. Busy with work, high stress and need to focus on that for the moment. When that passes then I can start to do more again.
    19
    Just a quick note, progress has been slow this week due to time constraints.

    Interviewing for another job this week and away on business next week.
    Things will start progressing once I get through the hump.
