TODO LIST
  • [fixed] Audio working without problems - camera was causing weird issues.
  • [fixed] DRM seems to be working - LP legacy libraries were causing weird libc fatal crashes.
  • [partially fixed] OMX is partially working - SW decoding is working fine. HW decoding is broken as of now.
  • [fixed] Wi-Fi working - Been working without problems since the first build.
  • [fixed] BT working - Same as Wi-Fi, always have been working without problems.
  • [todo] Camera not working - Videos and Photos aren't working. Enabling camera causes issues with Audio and OMX (SW).
  • [fixed] External SDCard - There are some mounting issues (vold related?) - External SDCard is working without problems now.
  • [todo] Deep Sleep - Pending to enable Doze and see if it improves the Deep Sleep. Still not working, big battery drains.
  • [todo] Volume keys are working weirdly - They're sometimes swapped.

I'm still not able to play music with Doubletwist or watch movies with Tubi. File Manager+ also doesn't see the SD card properly. It just says that a 128GB card is an empty 673 MB one. Odd.

Besides that: A very snappy, fast nice ROM. Awesome work @Rortiz2 ! Did not test that much yet but I am already impressed by the speed compared to what I had installed before. Again, thanks.

Thanks for the ROM. Here's my initial testing feedback...

I tested a video, but could not get any playback.

I couldn't get any audio working with either RadioDroid or AntennaPod. Also, the battery drain was relatively fast.

A logcat was showing issues with the Camera Service crashing constantly. So, referring back to the feedback on the Alpha version, I rebooted to TWRP, and deleted:
/system/lib64/hw/camera.mt8163.so
/system/lib/hw/camera.mt8163.so

... and now ... SUCCESS!

RadioDroid and AntennaPod are both working correctly.

My bluetooth speaker was working well.

Also, I was able to get an mp4 video playback working on a 1080p mp4 video. I only sampled the video, but it seemed to be working fine.

The camera app is not showing anymore (certainly related to my deletion of critical files for this app).

It'll take more time to get additional feedback on the battery life.

The SDCard is funky. It's volume label appears to be jibberish. Some apps find it OK, other apps have trouble seeing my SDCard.

Thanks again.

Great feedback! I also did this workaround and can now enjoy music. Thank you for the information. Another issue related to the sound, I realized in Setting>Sound, I could not move the bar to change the sound level. This issue also gone. I think sound related issue has solved. If SDCard issue solved, I can enjoy music on my SDCard. And I can see Images with Gallery that are on SDCard. Waiting for solving the SDcard issue.

New build is up

2020-11-28
  • Fixed Video Playback (SW).
  • Fixed Audio.
  • Disabled Camera (no more battery drains).
  • [KERNEL]: Fixed warning when releasing active sync point.
Note: You should be able to install this version using the built-in LineageOS OTA updater though I don't know if will work. If somebody updates using the OTA app let me know if works correctly.

Besides that: A very snappy, fast nice ROM. Awesome work @Rortiz2 ! Did not test that much yet but I am already impressed by the speed compared to what I had installed before. Again, thanks.

Hi,

I know mediaserver it's constantly crashing in the background but I don't know how to fix that crash.
I tried a lot of stuff with the same result (no success) so I ended up nuking out camera in the latest build.
I guess the problem it's related to libhal_effects.so since I always see before the libc crash:
Code:
11-27 20:57:26.840  3230  3230 D AMZ-Hal_Effects: >HalEffects
11-27 20:57:26.840  3230  3230 D AMZ-Frosted_Glass: >FrostedGlass
11-27 20:57:26.840  3230  3230 D AMZ-Frosted_Glass: <FrostedGlass
11-27 20:57:26.840  3230  3230 D AMZ-Hal_Effects: <HalEffects
11-27 20:57:26.840  3230  3230 D AMZ-Hal_Effects: >~HalEffects
11-27 20:57:26.840  3230  3230 D AMZ-Hal_Effects: <~HalEffects

Regards.

A logcat was showing issues with the Camera Service crashing constantly. So, referring back to the feedback on the Alpha version, I rebooted to TWRP, and deleted:
/system/lib64/hw/camera.mt8163.so
/system/lib/hw/camera.mt8163.so

Oh. Thank you!
Actually I forgot to delete those files and I have a very weird behavior: Firefox crashes all time, as well as Kodi. Youtube stuck on a white screen with some widgets all around. The tablet is very unstable
I deleted the files and now everything is OK, like the Alpha version

Note: You should be able to install this version using the built-in LineageOS OTA updater though I don't know if will work. If somebody updates using the OTA app let me know if works correctly.

Upgrading using OTA: I let you know

You're a wise man :)
And thanks again for you hard work: now I have a perfectly usable tablet

The OTA updater has detected and downloaded the version but gave an error when I tried to install it
I've got TWRP 3.3.1-0
So I did a reboot in recovery and manually install the zip downloaded by the updater
I did an installation on the previous version, wiping only cache and dalvik
Everything is OK but Amazon shop still does not work and Firefox is still lagging a little bit

*Edit*
Regarding Syncthing, it's possible sync only folders in the internal memory., despite the app can access the SD

Overall Impressions: Very Good So Far!

Installing now and will report with any useful info that may be needed. A great Thanksgiving gift!

Gotta say this ROM is already working pretty well in general. I can't wait to see what else can come.
For my testing, I used a 16GB Fire HD 8 Douglas for the build that was released on November 28th, and I also flashed the first beta build on a 32GB Fire HD 8 Douglas as well. The 16GB had Magisk root and both installations included OpenGApps "Nano" package as that is what I prefer for the majority of my ROM installations. Even though the "pico" package was

I won't be mentioning my issues on the first build since those have already been addressed in replies to this post, so my focus is on the new build from today. Since I already had the first beta build installed on a testing tablet, I used the built-in LineageOS updater and it detected an update and even downloaded the update, but then showed a silent notification reading "LineageOS 14.1 - Nov 28, 2020 Install Error". I have attached a picture for reference. Because of this failure, I just rebooted the device into recovery mode and flashed the image manually using ADB Sideload, without doing a clean installation. (In other words, I didn't wipe anything before or after sideloading the ZIP file in TWRP, other than Cache and Dalvik after flashing) When I flashed the image, it seemed that Magisk 21.0 popped up in the log and even patched the boot image. That's pretty cool since I don't recall ever seeing that before. I then rebooted my system, and I gotta say, it took a while to load, but it eventually put me on the lock screen with the notification, "Finishing Android Update"! That was good to see, and everything seemed like it was before. So, without further ado, let's finally get to testing the ROM itself.

For testing ROMs, I like to follow a basic method that I came up with on my own, and my testing is compiled with a variety of different tasks. I will list only the issues that I encountered since my testing can be a little comprehensive. While I am not done with my testing yet, I will share my results after spending a good couple of hours with my device.

Volume Control: Backwards when in portrait orientation at first, but after rotating, it was fixed.
Bluetooth: Cannot pair a Bluetooth speaker (Specifically a Google Home Mini) because of incorrect paring pin. See Screenshots below (Bluetooth1.png and Bluetooth2.png) It seemed to prompt me to enter a pairing PIN, but did not give me a place to enter a code. However, on a device like this, I shouldn't enter a PIN. It should show me a pin to match with the device (or something similar to that).
Browser: Playing 1080p video on YouTube using the built-in browser gave me a stutter every once in a while, but I won't blame it on the ROM, and I believe that it has something to do with the hardware in the tablet itself (or my internet connection, which is gigabit with Comcast and an Arris S33 Modem and Nest Wifi Router). I was loading some websites built on the WordPress framework and while they loaded, I experienced some graphical glitches with them. Again, I'm not sure if it is the browser in the ROM or the device, but still, something to note.
Camera: There was no camera app on the launcher, so I attempted to load it through the lock screen, but it was a white screen, presumably attempting to load the app, but then it just brought me back to the lock screen as if it crashed. But, I had a screen lock turned on. So, when I unlocked my device, the camera app asked for my location, so when I allowed the permission, it actually crashed.

So those are my initial bugs, but I'm far from being done with this ROM. I have a whole lot of plans and tests and I can't wait to help out even more.

    wow, did not expect an actively developed rom for this device, so glad I checked. Thanks for your work on this device.

    Is there a priority on the known issues?, like the order, out of curiosity.
    Yes, I'm currently working on fixing the chrome bug and the big battery drains.

    Since I recently unlocked the Fire HD8 2016, I'll add support for LineageOS and I'll update this thread to support both Fire HD8 2016 & Fire HD8 2017.

    Can you please tell me how to install the new version without having to reinstall all programs?
    1. Download the ROM zip.
    2. Copy the ROM zip to the external sdcard or the internal storage.
    3. Reboot to TWRP.
    4. Go to install > select the ROM zip > swipe.
    5. Once it finishes, select wipe dalvik cache and reboot.
