Xiaomi 12
After update to 1.4 I'm experiencing problems with GPS.
My install is 1.4 gappless + NikGapps ... logcat is attached
This part seems important to me:
CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE "/vendor/bin/loc_launcher": library "libgps.utils.so" not found: needed by main executable

EDIT: Attaching files does not work, here is the link: https://mega.nz/file/p1wVnY4I#V34TmiINDN6XKzSv0J7l6epN3Fs1IdQzekdTUIHmjCU

@Dyrex2004 Thank you for keeping this project alive for Mi9 (y)

Hi, would really like to try this rom, but after a clean flash i waited 30minutes but there are still the 4 blue balls juggling.
Also after a restart.
Any ideas before i flash another time?

You are right.
Format data solved the issue.
Now it run through, but it does not detect any wifis?
I use the gapped one.

I connected by SIM.
This works, but still no wlans are detected.
ROM looks and feels really pretty.
Would like to try more but without wifi is a little bit hard...

    Fluid is an aftermarket Android custom ROM distribution based on AOSP, focused on bringing a better UI/UX to Android with a fluid experience coupled with themes and customisations.


    Fluid doesn't aim at providing all the customisation available on the planet. We are focused on a cleaner, more Material design approach, with a few twists ;) that assured, we do have a dedicated theme engine with cool stuff getting added every new update. So sit back and enjoy Fluid on your device!

    - Adaptive Playback
    - Included GApps
    - Double tap power button for Camera
    - FOD Animation
    - Redesigned Themes page
    - Statusbar/QS/Lockscreen Customisation
    - Some other goodies :D
    Several system themes, icon shapes and fonts to choose from
    And most importantly:
    - A redefined UI


    Download Fluid for your device here!



    Wanna experience Fluid on your phone? Go ahead fam!

    - Download the ROM variant of your choice (Gapped for inbuilt gapps, Gapp-less for vanilla experience)
    - Backup every partition from TWRP Recovery
    - Make a full wipe (system, data, cache, dalvik)
    - Flash the ROM zip
    - Install GAPPS package (only if using gapp-less variant)
    - And at last Reboot!
    [First boot will take a few minutes! Have patience]
    Clean Flash is always recommended!

    Version Information

    Created 2020-09-27

    I have created a small but probably helpful app for everyone using an AOSP custom rom on their Xiaomi Mi9. Currently, it allows you to easily change the action that happens when you press your AI button on the left side of the phone! More features may be added at a later point.
    It requires root, but that's needed as it modifies a system file (to be exact it's /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kl
    New update is out!
    From now on I'll probably start posting more builds and updates as we have a new server which makes the maintaining a lot easier :D
    In response to the comment that the project appears dead - is it that the use of this forum seems dead and all activity is taking place on telegram now?
    I noticed the comment about a new link to the rom, and then checked telegram and found the project homesite had changed. None of this is mentioned in the op and that's bad.
    Besides the fact that I hate following things on telegram vs a forum the developers haven't even let the users know of the changes to the home site/download location/new version out and that they need to follow telegram to keep informed.
    I like the rom, hate the lack of passage of information.
