Getting stuck during initial setup "Getting your tablet ready..." Seemed like it could connect to wifi, but then would fail to communicate after that. Maybe a Gapps issue (using nano)?

try using a different Gapps package
No dice. Had the same issues with both nano and stock GApps. Wiped and reflashed a couple of times.

I feel like I might've had some sort of weird wifi-related issue with a previous release, but don't remember getting stuck like this. Can't make it through any of the initial setup (even when I try to do offline).

Had the same issue and, due to the comment of @Kaijones23, tried to fix it by using MindTheGapps. With this package, I could pass the "getting your tablet ready" step but was then stuck in a setup loop. Whenever the setup came to the speech activation step (which I wanted to deny), it jumped back right to the beginning.
So maybe MindTheGapps isn't the right choice either?

Additionally, today's update introduced a strange flickering of the display color temperature. Everytime I tap the screen, the color changes. It is almost as if nightmode would constantly toggle (this is unrelated to Gapps and happens also when flashing only the rom itself).

mind the gapps will work and i will fix the problem next update, you can turn it on night mode cause that stops it from flickering

@Kaijones23 I tested the 10-27-21 build and wanted to let you know about a few things:

• My SDcard is detected at boot with no issues

• NewPipe isn't working, when you attempt to play a video it gets this black and white glitching and NewPipe stops the video with the error "Unrecoverable player error occurred" (Haven't seen this issue in other apps)

• As somebody else stated there's this weird bug with "LiveDisplay" that causes the screen to flicker between white and orange (you acknowledged this issue above)

• There is a persistent notification from "Android System" that says
"Serial console enabled Performance is impacted. To disable, check bootloader."
It can be disabled if you disable the notification channel for it.

• When "Advanced restart" is enabled and I use the reboot to recovery option it hangs on the Amazon screen with "=>RECOVERY Mode..." in the bottom left corner.

Yes. I tested the 27 Oct beta.
I had same issues for videos with newpipe and YouTube.

Mind your gapps work on my device.
Confirm that SD card is detected on boot

That fixed it. (The version linked above is 3.4.0-0 if anybody was wondering)

Also just so you know during the initial reboot after flashing 3.4.0-0 it hung on the Amazon logo for 1-2 minutes then lagged through the LineageOS boot animation, before it finished the boot animation it rebooted and everything was fine.

Released the update for Fixing livedisplay issues by adding the vendor hal with the lineage
The 10-28-21 build is working great, i have a few more bugs/issues to report

• I cant control the volume of wired headphones unless i plug them in while turning the volume up,

• The TWRP build i flashed (3.4.0-0) has some weird lag issue, when you reboot in TWRP its really laggy and the only way to fix it is it reboot into recovery again, (without going into Lineage)

    I installed this, booted once and set up. I wanted to reboot to recovery to flash magisk, but when I enter the command from adb, it just hangs on the Amazon logo, and TWRP doesn't boot. Any help?

    EDIT It does reboot to recovery from Lineage power menu

    Why not make one for hd 8 2020.
    The newer models can't be rooted as yet so there's no way of flashing a new OS on them.

    Well the glitching seems to be gone but instead the apps that were glitching before now just wont play content,

    I attached a adb logcat below (used Newpipe to recreate the error
    i would use vandced instead of newpipe temporary until we work on fixing the issues
