Ok, thank you very much for your replies.

By the way, those of you who are having problems with rotation, can you confirm that this bug has appeared with the latest version? If so, it may be related to the camera sensor library (since I'm building a little wrapper now).

Thanks.

Do you guys use the "Shared Storage" (use external sd card as internal storage) option? This thing depends on sdcardFS and I'm planning to disable sdcardFS since it's causing weird issues with internal storages. Just asking to see if I should try to fix sdcardFS or I should just drop it.
Thank you so much for developing these roms!! they are amazing!
I am not sure what "shared storage" is but if you are talking about the ability to install apps on the sd card please do not remove it... I use google play books and kindle to download a ton of books that end up using more than 15 GB of space. the only way I can download that much content from an app is to install it in the SD card. Please don't remove it :)

*sigh* I guess I'll need to keep it only for you. I'm joking, don't worry, I'm already working on it ;)

I'll just like to chime in on the rotation issue. I only encountered it one time on the 12 Sep build.
Roughly what happened was, douglas was in landscape mode, douglas was put to sleep. The next day when I woke it up, it was still in landscape mode, I couldn't rotate it portrait until after I rebooted it.

Thanks @Rortiz2 for great work, i just tried to rom today. Most of the time work great with minor problem such as default browser keep crashing. It was fast and the camera works! Love it.

Normally i prefer de-google apps so i used APKPure for all my apps in this device. However, iam not sure what is the problem.
1. APKPure can't manage to install the apps, the download progress is so slow 2 kb/s. So i tried download manually from browser, it way faster.
2. XAPK file can't be opened by APKPure. I tried opening it from Files apps and try checking apk file from inside the APKPure, nothing works.

Things that i did,
1. reformatted the OS, still same problem
2. Use other apk installer, works

could you take a look at it? Lastly, i used microsoft edge to download file but it wont allow me to save the file in the internal memory, it said not detected.

Thanks. Yeah, those issues that you mentioned are related to the sdcardfs issue (which I still need to fix). I'll probably release a new update that fixes this (+ the sensor issues) during the next days.

    I just installed this for the first time ever on my douglas (bricked > downgrade > LOS > Profit). And I am kicking myself for not doing this sooner. The tablet is unrecognizably fast compared to the garbage FireOS! Thank you @Rortiz2 for all your hard work. This is really superb.

    That sounds like toomuch work. :) I was kinda hoping to get hw video for 720p60 videos in youtube cuz they seems to lag abit amd i am too lazy to switch it to 480 manually but i am pretty much content with the state of 15.1. Good work mate!
    Yes, indeed it is. We can only thank Amazon for not updating this tablet to (at least) Android 7.1. That could have made my life easier. Anyway, I'll focus on OMX once I fix these internal storage/external SD card leftovers and that USB connection error.

    • 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.
