Thanks for the heads up, I must have forgotten to refresh the vendor files. Will do another build for austin.
I also noticed the OMX stack isn't loading at all because of missing symbols:
Code:
02-05 06:30:13.764   250   356 E SoftOMXPlugin: unable to dlopen libstagefright_soft_mpeg4enc.so: dlopen failed: cannot locate symbol "_ZN7android28SoftVideoEncoderOMXComponent19validateInputBufferEPK20OMX_BUFFERHEADERTYPE" referenced by "/system/lib/libstagefright_soft_mpeg4enc.so"...
If you want to use SW OMX this is fine then, as it'll automatically fallback to it.

I'll sort that out on a following release.

Which tablet is this on?
Austin, by the way on the note about the tablet not mounting on the PC, it shows up as an Android Composite ADB Interface. It happened when I enabled debugging mode on the developer's settings and persisted even after disabling it. Even when set only to charging mode. The only way for it to follow the USB Configuration setting is to restart the device. Seems like a bug?

When I find which box my austin device is hidden then I'll take a look at that one.

Recently I noticed that Youtube on my tablet was acting weird and decided to flash Ziona's hardware accelerated video enabler patch, but when I checked my codec info, all of the 6 codec still had hardware acceleration false and Youtube was still acting up. What should I do to fix this?

Edit: I have the issue on a Ford model, which I forgot to mention, whoops

Thank you for your work, @ggow ! My barely usable austin tablet has new life!

I do notice that it does not have IPv6 support. It has local addresses but does not pick up the global address with SLAAC.

(I forgot that my new router is using DHCPv6 which Android does not support. Fixing that now, ignore that comment)

Also, I cannot read from an OTG USB stick. Expected? I just loaded the 20220205 release, loaded over the pervious one with TWRP.

Camera does not work, do I need to reformat to get that or is there an easier way?

I'll need to debug these issues when I have found my austin tablet, for now go back to the previous build.

@ggow : follow up: The IPv6 issue was my problem - Android needs a SLAAC server and won't honor DHCPv6. My fault.

The camera and OTG didn't work before, so I'm happy to keep the new build, it is still an improvment. I appreciate the fix for the WIFI bogus entry.

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

Downloads

I didn't check up on the updated build yet but on the 2021 ROM screen recorders (neither preinstalles nor 3rd party) work, same for screen sharing apps like apowermirror or miracast, also i have to tell that the rotating doesnt work sometimes and that apps like Kinemaster (video cutting apps) don't work too, i'll change this message if the update fixed it, if not you'll know what doesnt work for me, thanks for this beautiful ROM tho, using it for over a half year now

Just flashed my Fire 7 Austin model with the latest lineage-14.1-20220205-UNOFFICIAL-austin.zip version and installed gapps nano. Performance is much better, thank you! However, there does seem to be an issue with bluetooth, or at least certain devices. I used this tablet to accept square credit card payments with the square contactless and chip reader which paired by bluetooth. on fireOS, this worked fine, although it was slow as hell. But on Lineage 14.1 I am unable to pair the reader using either standard Square Register app or the new Square beta app. I've tested the reader with other devices and it pairs fine. Will try Lineage 12 and see if it works there. Anyone else aware of a fix for this issue?

Tested with Lineage-12.1-20200505-UNOFFICIAL-austin.zip and Square Point of Sale app and I was able to pair the contactless card reader via bluetooth without issues.

Hi guys,

I have a Ford device with CM image installed... (android 5.1) and would like to upgrade to a newer android. But as time goes by I completely forgot the steps I used 2016 to install the CM image.
Another thing is super su is broken and I don't know if the bootloader is capablbe of installing a new rom.
when I restart the device to bootloader I only get a black screen with info that I entered bootloader.

What would be the steps from here? do I need a windows system aditionally and is a sd card required for flashing or is this done over USB..?

Would be very nice if someone can list the steps to do for flashing a new rom, thanks!

cheers, kRA!Z3E

In order to use newer ROMs like this one your device needs the bootloader hack to allow it to boot non official kernels - like mentioned on the top of the first post in this thread.
The linked thread describes the process fairly good - Link

In case of the Ford device (5th gen) the process is possible without opening up the device.
Although if you device is using a newer bootloader than 5.0.1. you will need to downgrade - which will temporarily brick your device - it will no longer boot into the kernel until the process is finished.

It is probably not for the faint of heart.

The fix uses linux scripts - so it should be run on a Linux PC or a PC booted with a Linux-Live-CD.
