Hey flintman, nice to see your public post here.

You know me, I am the guy with the 8gb model with the bootloop until today - WOAH !

Your current initial release (also the build you send me from 04-11) runs well after a factory reset in TWRP.

But of course I had some issues for you:
1. There was a random reboot while playing "Micro Machines".
Here is the "/proc/last_kmsg": http://paste.evervolv.com/view/2c030b02
I hope you can see the log, I just get an "ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE", but it seems to be uploaded correctly.

2. When refresh any tab of the EVUpdater I got:
Logcat: http://paste.evervolv.com/view/5e41caf6
Message: "Error! Error downloading manifest entries"

3. On every first start after initial flashing any of your builds I got a crash from the Gallery-App. Later not, just once.

4. It seems to be very important to flash the pico-gapps not direct after flashing the rom. It seems that we need to flash the rom, set it up basicly (WLAN, LANGUAGE) and then reboot into TWRP and flash the needed gapps, in my case pico. If not, I got allways a crash after the step where I choose my language.

5. Your mentioned graphical glitches are not coming only when rotating the display. The come alos when we change the current app or going back to the home screen.
Or see the image above...

6. The brightness setting seems to be useless on my device.

7. A factory reset within the os does not start.

Please see my 7 points not as bad-post. I just want to give you the most feedback I can.
You made good work and I love for bringing the first android 7 with evervolv to this shitty amazon-os device.

New build out with working audio let me know how it goes.
Wow, really cool! Sound is working on my device. Great! This is the first rom for SOHO I know wich support sound and works stable.

I need to install ARM opengapps (http://opengapps.org/) after flash the rom, if not, the initial setup allways crashed after the language seletion.

Cool still some work but getting there.

I'm surprised how responsive it is for such an old device.

Magisk manager.apk says device is rooted, but no root permission. Flashing Magisk v12.0.zip detects a system installed root, found the boot image at /dev/vlock/mmcblk0p8 but gives an error "Unable to unpack boot image" (also removes sytem root). So flashed the ROM again and installed supersu.apk which indicates root, but can't update the bianary, and simply doesn't grant root permission to apps.
-The brightness doesn't adjust (so the screen is a blazing hot white theme). Anyone have any luck with Substratum and Default Dark OSM?
-Random soft reboots, and have to turn-on mtp back after every boot. Also have to reset adb debugging sometimes because Windows 7 gets confused or something.

I flashed opengapps pico, which worked flawlessly. I think this ROM has a lot of potential.
