[ROM] [unlocked] [douglas,giza] [OTAs] Lineage-14.1 [26 JUL 2021]

Search This thread
I wonder what happens too. To be honest, I have never delved into this bug since I don't really use GAPPs. Can someone confirm me if this problem happens on Lineage OS 12.1 as well? I can only think of PRODUCT_BAND but AFAIK that's already set to google.
Even though my stupid butt just bricked the kindle. It weirdly doesn't happen on LOS 12.
 
Hi Ror, thanks for your help unbricking my device. I reinstalled Android 7.1.2. I reinstalled apps but when I tried using the OS now it's very unstable. The speed manages to be slower than Fire OS and your other OS'es SLIMLP, Lineage 12. I'd recommend increasing the ZRAM amount to the highest possible. Also in the kernel you can try to change it to performance mode in the kernel by default.

So, you're basically telling me that after unbricking your device and re-installing the ROM again it's just unstable?

Yeah. I don't think the unbricking did anything. I'm thinking it's the ROM because when I installed a launcher and my apps it's very slow. it's always been slow to use. I wonder if my use case just makes the device inherently slow. This ROM clearly isn't fit even for light gaming. It's so slow to the point that i'm installing SlimLP. It seems android 5 works much better on the tablets hardware.

Anyone able to link me the GAPPS fix so I can download apps off google play I get a error on some games and other games install fine.
 
Quick question, what file system does this rom format your SD card to? iirc it uses FAT32. I remember having trouble copying a video file greater than 4GB in the past. I just reverted back to FireOS last night, because I wanted to check something, and noticed FireOS uses exFAT for SD cards.

I remember the rom not recognizing my old SD card because that was exFAT, so i formatted it from the storage settings tab, and it formatted to FAT32.

Depends on the size of the card. I have a 120 GB card formatted as exFat and it works fine.

So you mean you will build LOS14.1 for giza? If so I will look for a giza, LoL.
Yes. In fact It already booted.

How different giza from douglas? I guess both 64 bit and originally equipped with Android 5. I already have douglas and karnak. I am planning to add giza.

Thank you for the information. Then, I am thinking I may or may not (possibly may) get giza. I already have three dougras (LoL). I confirmed that your source tree at githhub.com rename or merge douglas-development to kfgdwi-development.

    Then, LOS14.1 will be discontinued soon?? How about deep sleep issue on LOS15.1?
    Well, if I get the same status as nougat, I guess I'll discontinue it yeah. Not to mention that LineageOS stopped pushing security patches to the cm-14.1 branch. You can also expect LineageOS 16.0 once 15.1 it's enough stable.

    Unfortunately, the Deep Sleep issue is present as well in lineage-15.1. The current list of working/not working features is:
    • Sound - OK.
    • Microphone - OK.
    • Internal Storage (sdcardFS) - OK.
    • External Storage - OK.
    • HW decoding - not working.
    • SW decoding - OK.
    • Photos/Video recording - not working (fair better than nougat).
    • Widevine (DRM) - not working.
    • Wi-Fi - OK.
    • BT - not working.
    Once I get BT and DRM working I'll upload the first beta of lineage-15.1.
