Awesome thanks a lot for the newest version. I tried it for about an hour.

I flashed supersu 2.82 instead of rootsu.

Everything seemed smooth. Had to go back to v14 because the recovery of my apps with titanium didn't work.

Also copying files from internal storage to external didn't work.

No idea, I need a log (dmesg / logcat) when you perform tap to wake.

Also,
Updated build.
Newer sources, fixes most of the application crashes (specifically Files android app).
Nothing special at the moment to test (other than rotation sensors and GPS). Please give it a try.

Thank's for updating our ZL. It's amazing...
But connecting to hidden WiFi SSID is not possible. If I show my SSID everything is fine. Responding Google many Oreo user on Nexus Devices had the same Problem. May can you fix it?

Are you still developing?
If we get 8.1 working I could get some roms for the device

Yes, we are. :angel: :cowboy:
8.1 should be working if you try building with fusion3-common sources.
At the moment, all Lineage sources for 8.1 are on staging / development branch, hence I haven't touched them.
I will use 8.1 sources once they are easier to work upon.

Thank's for updating our ZL. It's amazing...

Sorry, no development on this. There is a similar issue that occurred on 14.1 by one user and has reported the BUG.
But I don't have any viable solution to this, maybe in future 8.x releases, Google would fix it.

Thanks.

Uploaded a new build (20171231_184033). Fixed governor change on boot, now it correctly sets to Interactive instead of Performance.
There should be a noticeable improvement in battery life.

NOTE: We've switched on boot and system dex-preopt, so, "Wipe Dalvik + Cache" is necessary step. Still, if the device doesn't boot, please do a clean flash.

EDIT: Also, please look "Ambient Display Gestures" (located under System > Languages & Input > Ambient Display Gestures).
They contain wake device on Hand wave / Pick-up / Pocket feature.

Thank you and Happy New Year 2018 all!

(1) when watching YouTube, the picture is leggy sometimes.
(2) when sharing objects to another apps it will crash
That's what I found, but can be daily used
Thanks!

Thank you!!

First of all thank you and sorry if i commit some errors, cuz english is not my primary language!!. Been using your roms (RR since android M) to keep my zl up to date for a long time!

I installed this last release by TWRP 3.2.1!! Been using since 18/01/07 and very satisfied with it! I wiped Sistem, cache and dalvik and i got no errors about camera writing to sd card. Missing advanced options to restart/reboot but can live without this. Installed root via SuperSu 2.8 and its working fine until now.
Sometimes my mobile network data stops working but it comes back if I turn it off and turn on again...maybe its a problem im my carryer..
Another thing is about the status bar theme.. When i made the flash the status bar theme was black or grey... and changed to white today after a reboot...

To an Alpha release its very Stable and i would like to thank you again for this!!

With LOS 15.1 I have the issue with the wifi drop again. I always had the Problem with LOS 14 and any other Android 7.x Rom.

With LOS 15 it seemed the issue is gone but now with LOS 15.1 it is back. Anyone else noticed this Problem? I use the kodi remote APP frequently, so this issue is a pain in the ass.

Need a logfile?
