Within the next day or so, I'm going to create my own thread for this.
I can't edit the OP which is now very out of date.

EDIT:

Problem solved: Do the following:

1. Reboot into TWRP
2. Go into settings
3. Uncheck the option "Unmount System before installing ZIP"
4. Press back
5. Go into mount
6. Select System partition for mount (for good measure)
7. Press back and flash gapps
8. Factory reset if desired
9. Reboot
10. Should be all good after that.
D'oh! I didn't see this on time and had to figure it all out by myself haha.
I'll be referencing this. Thanks

I have been meaning to do this for some time - testing the experimental cm-14.1-testing branch of the compat-wireless wifi driver so doing some extensive testing of this vs the cm-14.1 branches. Long story short is that the cm-14.1 branch wins hands down. The testing branch won't be carried forward.

I found that the 5GHz band wasn't operable in either Smart Connect or isolated bands on my asus router (AX-88U). Per 15 minute intervals over a few hours there were so many disconnects it was unusable.

Switching to the cm-14.1 branch things were very different, even with Smart Connect mode enabled on the router the tablet was able to connect @ 300Mbps on 5GHz with good throughput and 144Mbps on the 2.4GHz band also in isolated.

New build will be out shortly containing the patches that @void555 provided me with. If we can get as many people testing with this as possible it would be great. I have been testing with it this afternoon and it seems to have an impact on switching between bands successfully and reconnecting out of sleep seems better too.

I'll push the new build shortly.
How do you switch between bands? I have installed the rom but just auto connects to 5g.

Just constantly connecting and disconnecting. i have tried splitting 2.4ghz and 5ghz but it was playing up with printer.
I had this problem with my ASUS router. Which router do you use? Can you report the signal strength on both bands? I had to adjust my routers smart switch roule.
can you live with priority for the 2.4ghz band?
and last but not least: I hope you use ggov s latest firmware.

I use virgin superhub 3.0. See attached pics for 2.4ghz & 5ghz. Yeah I tried latest from 2nd Feb.

Are this measurements from the same point? Usually 5ghz strength is lower than 2,4.
I would play around with BandCapabilty (see discussion in this thread earlier on page 94)

Universal android de-bloater

I came across UAD a while ago, definitely worth a look.
It is a program for removing unnecessary apps that can reduce battery life or make the device more vulnerable.
There is a recommended selection of apps that can be uninstalled (for user only) with a descriptor of what each one does when you click onto the name.
It is worth spending a little time selecting the apps to remove as some of the recommended ones may be useful to individual users.
After removing the apps I rebooted and cleared the dalvic cache, everything seems to be running fine.
I also de-bloated my phone about a year ago, it is now a little quicker and has a longer standby life.

Be careful, I used the windows version and detected, that deleted apps can not be restored Later. On the other hand you can gain more free memory, especially when you don’t use LTE and remove all the telephony stuff.

I used the Linux version (which requires the file extension .appimage to be added to the file) without any issues. The program can Uninstall/Disable and Restore/Enable system packages without any issues. Apps are not removed from the phone, only from the user profile so they can be restored by deploying a factory reset or through the UAD program. The FAQ gives you all you need to know although some parts are a little hard to understand.
If there is a choice it is much better to use the Linux version just because it plays so much better with Android. No need to set up Android Platform Tools Program Path or worry about finding drivers for the tablet. I have used ADB on windows and was very surprised at how much easier it was on Linux.

    Rules
    - Please search the thread before asking questions
    - Please try to stay on topic, I know it's not always possible

    Reporting Bugs
    - 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...
    - Explain the issue as clearly as possible
    - Explain the steps required to reproduce the issue if necessary.

    Prerequisites for Installation
    - Must have an unlocked bootloader
    - Update TWRP to Android-7.1 builds located here. Please make sure to use the recovery image which is appropriate for your device (Thor or Apollo).

    Project Status
    BETA TESTING -- QUALITY IS GETTING BETTER BUT TAKE A LOOK AT THE FUNCTIONALITY GRID IN POST #2

    KNOWN ISSUES
    - Thor/Apollo: Some apps may rotate to landscape the wrong way leaving the screen upside down. Many times you can re-rotate the device to fix.
    - Thor/Apollo: Sometimes after an extended period of time Wifi will stop working. Toggling airplaine mode fixes it.
    - Thor/Apollo: Bluetooth pairing issues - bluetooth function is still WIP.

    Fresh Installation
    - Backup your existing ROM first
    - Wipe the /data partition (but you can keep the media storage)
    - Flash the ROM File
    - Flash Open Gapps: use an ARM 7.1 version smaller than the "full" size to make sure it fits
    - Reboot
    - Enjoy!

    LineageOS Developer Builds / Downloads
    LineageOS Builds for Thor
    LineageOS Builds for Apollo

    Gapps
    - Open Gapps (use a size smaller than "Full" to make sure it fits)

    NOTE: Here's what I do to solve the "Play Games" side load issue... Anytime I update my GApps zip file:
    - I download the "full" and "mini" versions of GApps
    - Extract the "GApps/playgames-arm.tar.lz" file from the "full" file and add it to the "GApps" folder of the "mini" file.
    - Open the installer.sh script in the "mini" file and move the "playgames" line from the full_gapps_list= section into the mini_gapps_list= section
    - I use this modified "mini" .zip when flashing CM-14.1 ROMs so that my Play Games install always works.

    hey there, are you alright?
    hows going. i hope you both are fine.
    there are any news about oreo or new security updates? :)
    have a nice week.

    Hello All,

    - For lineage-14.1 - I'm waiting for May 2018 patches before building again.
    - For lineage-15.1, the WiFi bring is proving problematic, number 1 problem is difficult to solve and number 2 new job is taking a lot of bandwidth

    I'm still around, promise I won't just disappear without saying ;)

    Typically @ggow indicates if support is being curtailed/withdrawn. Don't see that happening anytime soon given the popularity of LineageOS. Frequency is driven by upstream and resource availability. Might be a bit irregular but it will come. :)

    Yes, I do not plan to stop HDX development any time soon. I will wait for the March patches to be included then do another build. Things have been slow, I have been promoted at work and so extra bandwidth is been used there and also busy at home.

    But remember I'm here still doing what I can in what little time I have :)
