I had this problem a time in the recent past and no other solution than format data...
since that, I never use the updater and I do this steps to update:
* download the ROM from official site
* restart into recovery
* flash magisk uninstaller
* flash ROM, OpenGapps (Nano in my case), Magisk (>=20.0)
* reboot normal

Thank you very much. I will look into it and avoid using the inbuild updater as well.

Instead of flashing Magisk Uninstaller you may simply wipe system.

I have been dirty flashing rom updates like this in several devices, for years, with not one problem.

When you wipe system you get rid of the rom backup/restore addon.d scripts that usually do more harm than good.

You remember from which version ?

Updated from March 6 to March 9 without any issue.

Sometimes I had a strange behavior on this ROM...
* I lock the device powering off the screen (I have set un inmediate lock after screen off at settings)
* I put the device into the pants pocket.
* After a while I take the device from the pants pocket and the device is unlocked.
This only occurs sometimes but is very annoying.
Anyone has this issue? How to solve?

seems like something broke for me, even after a clean flash nothing works, no wifi, no internet, no bluetooth... how to solve it?

Yesterday I had a very strange issue...
I'm playing with Android settings (theme and accent color) and I have suffered a FC. After that, I've rebooted my device and, after, BT and WiFi was disabled, PIN from the 2 SIMs unlocks the phone but no Mobile data and each 20-30 seconds the statusbar icons for mobile coverage dissapeared...
I have tried to remove cache and dalvik from recovery but no luck. Also tried to remote data from Android settings but no luck.
Only a device wipe (no format data) was solved the issue.
Do you know what's the problem and how solve it without wipe?

Funny that you ask me this today. No, it does not work... to my great regret. This is the only IMS-based Service that does not work with my dipper device and my mobile provider. Pls read my post here on that topic:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3825230

I hope @infrag has an idea what we could do to make VoWifi work on our devices. I have a really bad mobile connection at home and would urgently need that great feature.

There must be a way to enable it without root an put the needed config into the rom install file.

I'm in a somewhat similar position in that I need VoWiFi because of poor signal in my office. Did you ever figure out how to get it working on LOS 16? I have WiFi calling enabled in settings and I know provider supports it as SIM card in a different phone can make VoWiFi calls. As best can tell its not enabled/supported in LOS build. See screen capture from Network Cell Info Lite.

    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.

    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.
