May I ask when one should update their ROM given weekly builds?
My current build is dated 15th Jan 21, and my 'updates' notifier has worked for the first time and I see I am 3 weekly builds behind now.
I have no issues, all my 4 most used apps work, except when one of them plays a whizzbang advert with animations and or videos then I have to crash though and restart app. This has been so with every LOS 14.1 build in last 3-4 years. I was wondering if pjotrski100 original post re ... electronic newspaper issues were also due to the adverts?
Thank you xfiver, the tablet is still unusable for reading most newspaper apps (FT, Washington post, Economist). Initially thought that clearing the apps caches had made them more stable but not really unfortunately. I've reverted to reading them on my phone's 6 inch screen because I'd have to restart the app every other paragraph I read on the tablet :-/
It could well be the wizzbang adverts that are to blame like you suggest. Cranking up the processor and GPU to full speed with voltages to match, only made things worse. Not sure how to troubleshoot this so I'm probably barking up the wrong tree.
Most other apps work fine, but if there's one use for this nice 12.2 screen it would be to allow the layout and overview that you get in a newspaper, especially for my old tired eyes
With respect to your issue of updates, my notifyer has always been working here, although being a bit ocd I have the urge to check once in a while by diving into the settings. All the time hoping that some day LoS 17 will be seen in the wild for this old tablet of ours, solving world hunger and the pandemic in one fell swoop
