Camera is working in Douglas somewhat but I don't see why you would need the camera unless you need to scan a QR code. So I have no idea what to tell you but wait for the issue to resolve.

Just installed the latest build. I was having a lot of trouble manually booting into recovery, for some reason. To my delight, I was able to download the new build through the Lineage updates section AND it rebooted automatically into recovery. It's those little things that are so very much appreciate. Thanks again for all your wonderful support for our old tablets, @Rortiz2 !

Ну, попробуйте adb logcat, пока пытаетесь открыть приложение камеры.
Вот журналы, которые вы просили. Хочу уточнить, приложение камеры есть в списке приложений, а не в меню приложений. Вроде отключен. В галерее есть кнопка камеры. Я пробовал через это прогнать. Надеюсь логи помогут разобраться, и вы сможете исправить)

I don't speak russian, but thanks for the log anyway.
Is the camera icon showing up in the Home Screen (launcher)?

oops, sorry for my russian
To be clear, the camera app is in the app list, not in the Home Screen (launcher). It seems disabled. There is a camera button in the gallery. I tried to drive through it. I hope the logs will help you figure it out, and you can fix it)

Interesting, can you grab a logcat while you boot the tab? That should reveal us at what point it fails the initialization of the hw module (but I'm guessing missing libraries or symbols).
 
Just upgraded from LineageOS 14.. this rom runs great.. awesome.. the UI is so fluid.. can't comment on the battery life or other features yet.

One issue though. It isn't doesn't seem to like exFat formatted SD cards. I tried inserting multiple exFat SD cards, and it says SD card is corrupted. It recognizes the same card formatted as Fat32, and if you format the card on the tablet, it uses Fat32 as well.

I think I had noticed this behavior in the first few builds of LineageOS 14.1 too.. maybe exFat utils is missing?

Edit: Frequent WiFi disconnects also seems to be an issue. WiFi drops about every few minutes and then connects back up.

  • Are you using douglas (2017 version) or giza (2016 version)?
  • So, exFat SD cards never worked in lineage-14.1 either?
  • I thought WiFi drops were solved long time ago (when I switched to prebuilt MTK WiFi HAL), are you using 5GHz networks?

    Just wanted to take a moment to thank the OP, this ROM has breathed new life into my douglas.

    Not sure what's wrong with MicroG then. The patch is there (and applied, I double checked it). Can't do anything else, sorry. As for giza camera, try to grab boot logs, they should be different now.

    I'm enjoying LineageOS 15.1 so far (Douglas). I see that deep sleep is a known issue. Is there a way to manually force a deep sleep? And do you think the deep sleep problem is something that could be fixed in the near term, or is it more a long term, to probably can't be fixed sort of issue?
    Unfortunately, I'm still not sure of what's causing deep sleep to not work at all (even though I tried to debug it a lot of times). So yeah, I can't give you an exact date (or estimated) of when I'll fix that issue.

    @Rortiz2 This may be an unpopular opinion, but I hate the default typing sounds on LineageOS. I'm not sure if it's kosher to replace them in the distribution image? If so here is a copy of the iOS typing sounds:

    They just need to be placed in /system/media/audio/ui
    I would prefer to keep the LineageOS sources as stock as possible. You might hate the default sounds, but other people might like them. So yeah I think it's best to just leave them as is and let users change them afterwards if they don't like the defaults (like you did). As a side note, since these will be overwritten every time you update the ROM, I would recommend you to create a ZIP that replaces the sounds (so you can just flash it after every update) or set up some kind of addon.d script.​

    • Fixed camera.
    • Fixed internal storage (OBB) issues.
    NOTE: Video recording isn't working at all, it crashes with the stock camera app but it works with some third-party apps (such as Telegram).
    NOTE: Let me know if obb issues are fully gone (I basically reverted the sdcardfs squash update). Try to clean flash the ROM as well before reporting if the bug it's still present.
