the notch fix means more icons on notch or have hide cutout?
More icons.
The notch drawable area has been adjusted.
It seems, no notch hide cutout yet.

To keep hw crypto (fbe), I have to fastboot MIUI global dev, do the setup, set a code, then reboot to twrp -> format data and flash lineageos. Right ?
Because I tried to flash lineageos after xiaomi.eu but I think that xiaomi.eu's miui build contain a dm-verity disabler to disable stock encryption

EDIT :
Yes, I had to fastboot flash latest MIUI Global Dev to get hw crypto (FBE), because whenI came from Xiaomi.eu's build, dm-verity was disabled.

Just so you know, DM-Verity does not disable forced encryption. It only affects Verity checking. The reason people get confused is because the 'dm-verity' flashable zips floating around usually includes FEC disabler (forced encryption). These are 2 separate things. For example, to keep encryption and root Stock Global, i need to remove DM Verity, but leave the FEC. There are several varieties of the DM-Verity floating around which makes it confusing and only a few are separated.

Big thanks @Agimax for your explanation. Everything is now clear!

I have a question guys, which camera app are you using?
I tried a Gcam mod for MI 8 from here www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/

MGC_6.1.0.21_MI8_V2e-fu24_02a.apk

But when I try to modify a simple setting (remove AF indicators from the screen), the camera app refuses to work again

Alors I tried ANXcamera, dipper version from January, and the telephoto lens (zoom x2) refuses to work

EDIT : Forget my question about Gcam mod, I found a working one on BSG Mi8 telegram channel. But for ANXcamera (aka miui camera port), I'd like to have your help
EDIT #2 : Latest AnxCamera for beryllium (aka poco f1) is an all in one package that is compatible with MI 8,so it works perfectly

Anyone still struggling to get Google Pay to work? I have verified that safety net is passed in magisk but for some reason still can't do it in the app. On the latest build Mar 16

Same problem here. One day it just stopped working without an update from Magisk or Google Pay. Read something about a problem with PayPal, even from users that use stock and don't use root.

Seems there is a discussion going on: https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/discussion-google-pay-magisk-discussion-t3906703

Right now I'm on latest xiaomi.eu beta, but I'm following this thread since I'm planning to move to Lineage sooner or later. (Even if I must say MIUI 10 is much better than previous MIUI versions..)

Anyway, I've had the same problem, too. This fix was shared on MI8 Telegram channel, it's working on MIUI, so I can't tell if it'll work on Lineage, but it may be worth a try since it takes two minutes:

Simply delete /data/data/com.google.android.gms from TWRP and done, reboot.

I've done it and my credit card was correctly added to GPay, but I had to enable once again my Google Backup since it wasn't working.
So, I'm not sure it'll work for Lineage, too, if you can try it, maybe we all will find it out. ;)
My advice is to move that folder in another safe place and not delete it so that it can be resorted.

After deleting this folder and reboot, I had to disable "write" owner permission of this folder, then reboot, then everything was okay

    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.
