You mean I trun on airplane mode will WiFi keep on ? ,
I have other questions ,
Some router Not compatible with the device, the device keeps connecting and disconnecting what's slllooooo ???

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought your issue was losing WiFi connectivity. I had that issue which was only solved by restart or toggling of airplane mode.

Got my Kindle Fire 8 2018 this Monday and got LOS 16.1 on. Performance was great, the only hangup was that there is a known issue for LOS 15, 16, 17 with Netguard not working:
So jumped to LOS 14.1. Aside from a few apps that aren't compatible with this android version, everything works fine. This also worked for other netblockers that use IPtables like AFwall+. I used a kernel manager on both versions to get a bit of a better performance in powersaving/performance profiles. Will also add that I used both without gapps and instead with MicroG/Aurora/F-droid

If you are using this device for a single task/light browsing/as a student, 14.1 should be fine.

Looking forward to bumping to 19.1/18.1 once it's stable

    Hey everyone good news. The codecs on pie are kind of working lately I fixed the codecs that it can stream regular videos but the YouTube videos doesn't play. @ggow do you mind helping me with headphone jack and Bluetooth issues ? I'm currently working on my kernel with performance improvements and better Battery life. I'm currently working on the issue that it crashes the kernel for some reason. What mostly issue I'm focusing on is the software side now .
    Just dropping this here

    Thanks to @k4y0z for his help! we're working on bugs and issues.
