I'll ask here as it seems far quieter than your Sirius thread. What are your plans now @rcstar6696? I asked you a while ago when you released PureNexus, Carbon and Lineage builds in your AOSP thread what you were going to be focusing on and your answer seemed to be "everything and nothing", haha. Have you given up on trying to (what would seem) single-handedly make the 3.10 kernel workable? Will you be looking to make yourself the official Lineage maintainer for the Sirius and Castor?

Hey the plan is not to stop 3.10 kernel but in the last few weeks i only worked on 3.4 kernel to make them stable
In lineage i hope i can be the maintainer for the devices but i can't maintain castor officially because you need to habe the device

Read my last few comments :(
Oh, my god, sorry. We were writing in the same time.
I wish you all the best with your exams.
Unfortunately I really need LTE connection, that's why I bought this tablet. Sure it was a big mistake, instead to buy something more XDA-Friendly. But you came in my help and I took it out from the drawer where it was dying with its lollypop, re-borning again thanks to you.
I think you are the only hope of every Z2 tablet owner. Please don't abandone us, ok?
Thanks and good luck.

Hello!

It's very nice to hear that Lineage is already available for Z2 tablet. Lot of thanks for as it is very nice work.

I have a question what maybe you can answer. My small daughter uses one Z2 tablet (WiFi only) and she uses the stock camera because the effects what Sony give us as plugins. Are there any possibilities to use any type of hacked Sony camera to maintain my daughter's requests and usage or I need to forget Lineage on her device or forget the Sony camera as there is no possibilities to work together.

Thanks for the answer in advance!
