@ggow , can we expect a similar ROM for the older FIRE devices, like Ford?

I think it's possible, been looking into it. However it may result in loss of cameras and other functionality at least in the short term.

I'm wanting to get all the amazon devices I work on onto lineage-16.0, easier to work on one rom for all.

Got this working on my fire 7. Pretty amazing!
Having issues with YouTube playback with new pipe though. Setting default video format to WebM seems to fix it. Playback also doesn't work in Firefox.

I'm having the same issue. I can't play YouTube in the app, on Firefox, or in NewPipe. I also can't play videos on cnn.com in Firefox. Setting the format to webp in NewPipe does fix it though.

Got this working on my fire 7. Mostly great so far.

A couple of things I noticed:
- after sign in it hangs checking for updates and fails. Hitting cancel works though.
- Tried to setup 2nd user account fort my daughter managed through Google Family Link and it failed (tried multiple things with no success).
- installed YouTube and YouTube kids, no video just audio.
- installed Chrome browser through Google Play. YouTube.com works there.

Love the Rom and the updates. Thank you.

I just wanted to add that I tested this on my Fire 7 (sage colour) as well. I got this device well over a year ago, around black friday in 2019, and I never connected it to wifi, so it was on whatever FireOS version it was on. Took me a while to remember how to install it, but with the XDA forum post (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/fire-7-2019-mustang-unbrick-downgrade-unlock-root.3944365/) I was successful.

I simply upgraded it the first try, which ended up consuming close to 8GB of space, so I went through TWRP and did a format on the storage and reinstalled, which put it down to about 6GB of used space. Not bad, got 10GB free.

Performance is really nice. I haven't fully tested everything yet, and I'm willing to go without a camera (they aren't great anyway), but I love what you did, ggow. Thanks for knowing more than I ever expect to!

    - EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: This ROM only works on devices using the bootloader hack.

    - 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). This will be fixed in a later update.
