LineageOS needs no introductions. This version of LineageOS-14.1 is a highly customised version solely for the ford and austin models of the Amazon Fire 7"

- EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: This ROM only works on devices using the bootloader hack. See <<< HERE >>> to unlock your devices.

- IMPORTANT: Do not update Magisk via the Magisk Manager App, your device will enter a bootloop if you do. Instead update Magisk via TWRP only. If you do this by accident then it is recoverable by just flashing the latest version of the ROM again (with gapps etc as required).

Rules
- Please search the thread before asking questions
- Please try to stay on topic, I know it's not always possible
- Please report bugs here
- Report only one issue per bug report
- When reporting bugs please post a logcat and/or dmesg containing pertinent information regarding the issue...

Prerequisites for Installation
- Unlocked Bootloader
- TWRP Installed

austin info

Ok @ggow:
Excelent ROM as always:)
It's almost fully stable but I found two bugs:
  • Camera won't open, it says: Can't connect to camera (See image)
  • And there's the nvram warning error too in Wi-Fi settings. I remember that you commited something in hd6/hd7 that fixed it.
The camera log is attatched above.
Regards and good job!

On my ford tablet, I have that same Wi-Fi error as shown in your screenshot, but camera seems to work fine for me.

Awesome rom! Never though my fire 7 2015 would run this!

Any chance we get a newer android version than Nougat?

You've done enough already thanks, just asking for curiosity :p

Camera works fine for me

It is running rather nice already. Once I have fixed up all the bugs on the this nougat release then I'll think about pie or Q. Pie is not easy to stabilize running on the old blobs we have which is why I'm using nougat as a stepping stone.

Looking into long boot times this is been caused by a problem with NVRamAgent and media_policy services not starting straight away and as a result meeting a timer expiry.

I've noticed a sleep "bug" on ford when you press the power button or when the sleep goes to sleep, the screen goes into landscape for almost a half-second before the screen turns off as seen in the slow-motion video provided in the attachment (in the zip file).
I don't know if it's just me or not, but anyone running this rom, try pressing power or having it go to sleep and see if the issue occurs.

Hello it's not a sleep bug, it's a problem with the weird hardware orientation of the screen. Most tablets and phones have no offset and operate at normal rotation orientations (ie base 0 degress) however with the ford tablet has a base hw rotation of 270 degrees which is why you see this.

It's nothing serious just a visual artifact. Will fix in the next release.

I was waiting for an update to Nexus ROMS because I feel it runs better that LOS but with 14.1 beta available there is no way to avoid trying it :) Backing to LOS from Nexus in a few seconds full wiping my Ford. Thanks

UPDATE: Aaaand I forgot GAPPS :D, trying with 7.1 pico

In my Ford wifi and screen rotation sensor works without problems (NVRAM?). sdcard not working as stated
