Security updates

Hi to all,
Just want to say that update the security patches here will be a bit tricky and will probably need more time since they need to be backported.
Cheers!

Thanks for your work! Can anyone say how this performs compared to the LineageOS ROM?

One thing I noticed is that the long wait before starting Google Store download reduced a lot, now less than 30 seconds. This might be due to the version of gapps, but very comfortable for me.

    Sounds interesting for me to know as well :)

    I see a lot is going on here! Great work.
    My daughter is using this generation Fire. I love to swap to this Douglas rom.... but for this, it is needed to have the headphones work.
    Is this easy to solve? Or this something that is not easy to fix and will never happen in this rom? Thanks for letting me know, as I am a rooky.

    Known Issues:
    - Wired headphones do not work
    If you want the honest response here we go. It's VERY difficult to fix headphones. I can assure that I don't have enought brain to do that so don't expect this from me. If someone (ggow, k4y0z, t0x1cSH, Kaijones) fixes it for other Fire, will be pretty easy to port the patch to this Fire.
    The only thing you can do, it's buy a bt headphones. Here they're about 10 € while we "try" to fix this bug.
    Regards.
