    Hello,
    First of all, thanks a ton for all of this hard work! I love my 12.2, but it was so limited by the lack of support for the OS. I recently installed the most-recent link here for LOS 16, and it tends to work very well. I do have a few issues I’d like to report/seek solutions for:
    1.) the Bluetooth app tends to become unstable over time for some reason. I’ve reset it several times as described elsewhere in the forums, but it always returns to randomly starting/stopping. I’ve had the settings app stop working as well several times when trying to reset the bluetooth/wifi settings.
    Since I use both a bluetooth keyboard and ear buds, the lack of consistent connectivity is an issue. I have found, though, that if I connect the ear buds and just keep them doing something (like playing spotify all the time even if I’m not listening to them), the bluetooth app stabilizes and stays connected.
    2.) the volume both for media playback and phone calls is extremely low. I’ve tried to address that via some other solutions I’ve found in the forums, but they haven’t been substantially useful.
    3.) I had an extended incident yesterday where the unit unexpectedly crashed while I was in the middle of doing what I’d been doing for about an hour and repeated to crash every time it rebooted. Battery was roughly 40% at the time. I stopped trying to boot after a while and let it charge more. Eventually, I rebooted and it stayed on for a few seconds before becoming unstable again and crashing. I went through this crash/reboot cycle for a while w/ it becoming progressively more stable until it eventually notified me that the AVG anti-virus app I’ve installed wasn’t operating correctly. I closed the app, and the system started working stably again. The app eventually restarted on its own and I haven’t had issues since. I’ll note I experienced similar incidents using the stock ROM, so perhaps my system has a more-fundamental issue.
    Anyway, I thought I’d pass along this feedback and again thank you for all of this work. It’s completely resurrected my machine! Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Thanks for this work! The lack of OS upgrades for the Note Pro 12.2 is very sad, because it’s still a very usable tablet.

    I’ve run into the issue that I can’t install an important app, because the stock Android version is too low. I’m looking to upgrade to LineageOS, but also need the device to be as stable as it can be.

    I’ve seen the most active version is 15.1 Unofficial 20180708. Any feedback on how version 16 compares with version 15.1 in terms of stability?

    Cheers!
