[Firmware] Xiaomi Redmi Note 8/8T [ginkgo/willow] [Auto updated daily!]

Recognized Developer
All Xiaomi custom ROMs users complain from a single problem, which is the firmware updates. As there are many devices with no one to provide the newest firmware update every single release, and developers who provide updates to devices may forget or be busy sometimes, so releases are provided later. Here comes my solution:

Xiaomi Firmware Updater (Redmi Note 8/8T)

Code:
#include 
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

A set of various scripts that automatically generates Xiaomi firmware flashable zip files every MIUI new update!
My scripts download MIUI official ROMs, both Developer and Stable, Global and China, extracts the firmware-update folder, generates firmware flashable zip with auto-written "updater-script", and uploads them automatically to many servers.
The scripts are completely automated, running on a Linux server every six hours.

Note:
Names will be in the following manner:
  • fw_ginkgo_miui_GINKGOGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Global firmware
  • fw_ginkgo_miui_GINKGOINGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 India firmware
  • fw_ginkgo_miui_GINKGO_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 China firmware
  • fw_willow_miui_WILLOWGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T Global firmware
  • fw_willow_miui_WILLOWEEAGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T EEA firmware

Downloads
You can get updates always from various mirrors available on the website:

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Firmware? Is it a full ROM or OTA package?
Firmware is not a ROM nor OTA Package, it's a set of low-level drivers that helps the operating system do whatever it wants to do. It includes various things like Modem, Bluetooth, Bootloader, DSP and etc.
Why should I update the Firmware?
Firmware is provided from Xiaomi directly, and there are no sources for it to let developers build and edit it on their own like custom ROMs, so if you want to keep your device up to date always update your firmware!
Do I need updating the Firmware If I'm MIUI official or custom ROM user?
No, MIUI ROMs contain the firmware-update package which I extract and provide here.
What are the supported devices?
All Snapdragon and MTK devices including China-only devices.
Check the full devices list here
How to update the firmware?
1- Download the package you want to flash. IT MUST BE NAMED WITH THE SAME CODENAME OF YOUR DEVICE.
2- Flash it using TWRP or any custom recovery. There's no need to wipe/format anything before or after the installation.
How to check the updated firmware?
Usually, the modem gets updated with newer firmware, you can check it in Settings > About > Baseband.

How is the SOT for this phone? I what to buy but if it is better than note 7, if not I will keep note 7. Also ı can't find anything about that.

SOT seems to be around 10 hours with 50% brightness, I spent the whole day watching YouTube, Netflix, used Facebook with a lot of videos, reading both on chrome and on Wps, WhatsApp & telegram and played with phone settings. Also halfway during the day, I updated my phone to V10.3.5.0.PCOMIXM from V10.3.2.0.PCOMIXM. I haven't played any games though, not a big fan of em lately :)
Screenshot are attached.

Same here, 10+ hours SOT.. Whatever I do on phone it's always like that [emoji2] I even play games (just a bit, not all the time) and it's still 10+ hrs [emoji2] Brightness is on auto mode.

The firmware I provide isn't an alternative to the official rom. However, you can install China rom on your device if you have unlocked bootloader.

I do have an unlocked bootloader I was asking because I've heard that installing the wrong version of a ROM made for a different hardware revision can brick your device

Any issues with flashing China firmware on Global phone or vice versa? Any advantages/disadvantages either way? I'm assuming the hardware is the same for China or Global variants, just the rom is different?
