Forgive me if this is a stupid question but wouldn't a more recent vendor patch level have some sort of bug fix or other security patch or is June 2018 the most recent vendor patch level Xiaomi released for Pie ? Just so no misunderstanding, not complaining just trying to better understand. See this link

Vendor patch level is just a field we fill in when compiling.
It doesnt actually mean thats the patch level you are running.
However I believe google does compare vendor patch level with the device fingerprint for CTS. Therefore it needs to remain the same as what stock has for this field.

I've updated to today's build and the February patch has come to LOS16, still double tap to wake isn't working. Could you please look into this issue @infrag? As I've said before, the changelog is showing some major changes for all the devices related to this, but it's not working fine for mi8.

Thank you. I was just concerned by the comments about Vendor patch level under the "Trust" section in LineageOS. As you mentioned CTS, is SafetyNet supposed to pass? With today's build it does not. Please see attached screen shots.

You need Magisk in order to pass the check otherwise it'll fail, LOS is not gonna pass the check once installed.


Thank you for the link, it's gonna be in tomorrow's build! ;)

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    GPL compliance:


    Device tree source code: LineageOS/android_device_xiaomi_dipper
    Kernel source code: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_kernel_xiaomi_sdm845

    Working:
    Camera (and flashlight)
    IR Camera
    WiFi
    NFC
    Bluetooth
    Telephony (Calls and Data)
    Audio (Record and Playback)
    Video Playback
    Sensors
    GPS
    HW crypto (FBE)

    To make Google Pay work there is currently a .zip that need to be flashed as shown in the post below:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79672865&postcount=2284

    Compatibility:
    Compatible with Xiaomi Mi 8
    Builds are based off the Xiaomi's Android 9 firmware with proprietary blobs.
    Downloads:
    Official download links: https://download.lineageos.org/dipper

    Notice:
    No custom kernels are supported in this thread. Only stock kernel and official builds will be supported. No bug reports if that's not the case.

    Installation:
    Reboot to recovery (TWRP recovery for Mi 8)
    Format /system, /data and /cache
    Install MIUI P based firmware.
    Install LineageOS zip package
    Install [optional] a Google Apps package of your choice (Open GApps is advisable, but stock and super variants are not recommended!!!)

    Important notes:
    * Required * firmware version must be based on MIUI P-based builds.
    GApps can only be flashed on clean installs.
    Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if MIUI was previously installed and device was encrypted.

    So there hasnt been an update for a while since I've been working on building vendor img. Hopefully I'll have a test build up in the next few days. As it is it boots but there are a few bugs that I'm trying to sort out first.
    Secondly:
    I'll ask Bruno about what the process is to get mi8 official. I cant imagine there will be much required. I cant say it bothers me if mi8 is official or not but theres enough people here who seem to care so I'll give it a go.

    I just wanted to say thanks to all have donated to me. It is definitely not a requirement to donate and I wasn't sure if I should post anything here to sound like I'm encouraging it but I'd feel remiss to not say anything.
    So Thanks very much!

    Latest unofficial is close to perfect for me, everything works fine, it's smooth and battery life is astounding but gps is unusable on Waze, it kept moving my location all over the place once I started driving :/

    ew. Looks like my gps crash fix lost us some satellites.
    I'll do some testing and make another build soon.
