OK, so, just to clarify a few things:

1. I am now on android 10, MIUI, xiaomi.eu. So now for flashing, flash to latest stock rom (without relocking, ofcourse) and then do the fastbootd things?
2. If I want to root, do I use the xiaomi rom's boot.img? I don't see a way to open the system.img file in any other way to get a boot image otherwise, and using the MIUI kernel doesn't make sense to me. Or is the kernel not present in the boot.img anymore? bit oldfashioned maybe in the questions here, but I just want to make sure. Thanks to the dev, and anyone replying, and I hope you have a great day!

If you are using twrp, you can flash magisk. Just rename magisk.apk to magisk.zip

Thanks for the help. As for the auto brightness thing, I have to agree with the other user writing about it in this topic - it is too aggressive, and is either max brightness, or lowered drastically. I toggled the force different backlight scale in phh settings and it is a bit better (using joyeuse). Also, is it atleast possible to add a toggle in settings to swap the back button with the recents button? It's a habit that is hard to get rid of if you ever used any other device, ever. Otherwise, 0 problems. Very smooth ROM, although I had to replace the stock launcher as even disabling the Google app doesn't remove the search bar from the top of the device, but that's just cause I find it annoying and of 0 value to me. Thanks @sooti , you've done a great job.

EDIT: using it a bit more and I notice the edges of the screen arent as rounded as stock rom, definitely looks tighter than stock.\

EDIT2: media volume on headphones is distorted on max, last 4-5 steps are inaudible cause of distortion.

I dont know, i must try when i can to see how work on this build, can it be that my curtana was most new and it have diferent sensor hardware
I'm assuming you are flashing Indian fastboot rom. I had some issues with indian rom. I've been using latest gsi build on GLOBAL fastboot A11 now and it has no issues. And also do not touch phh settings.

Hi, I've updated over the previous build and Safetynet is failing (CTS profile). Reverted back to 20/7 rom and it's passing again. Are you experiencing the same issue? Universal Safetynet fix installed with Magisk

    What is this?
    An AOSP based ROM, with gapps included and gesture support (pocket, hand wave, pickup).

    Based on Android 11.0

    Notes:
    1. If you want to root then copy the stock boot from the latest stock rom into internal and use magisk to patch it, then flash the patched boot in bootloader (fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img)
    2. I will try to provide monthly patch updates and fixes as needed, don't ask for ETAs... I usually aim for the 5th of each month or whenever Google releases their patches
    3. If you are coming from a previous version, I highly recommend clean flashing, otherwise you will probably have issues

    Bugs:
    You tell me

    You tell me? I worked hard to get everything working, I don't see any other issues, please report real issues, not feature requests from MIUI or other roms.

    Getting fastbootd drivers working on windows:
    1. Download these drivers and unzip
    2. follow the instructions here to install the unsigned drivers
    3. select the windows inf

    Steps:
    Please follow these steps closely!
    For new installs:
    1. Unlock bootloader
    2. Download vbmeta from here and flash it in fastboot like this:
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta_note9s.img (IF YOU DONT DO THIS STEP, VOLTE AND OK GOOGLE WONT WORK!)
    3. In bootloader enter: 'fastboot reboot fastboot'
    4. After we reboot you will see 'fastbootd', enter 'fastboot flash system system.img' (extract the system.img and put it in the folder you're in
    5. enter 'fastboot reboot recovery'
    6. select format userdata
    7. then select reboot to system

    To upgrade from previous versions:
    1. Reboot to fastbootd (adb reboot fastboot from inside android or fastboot reboot fastboot from bootloader)
    2. After we reboot you will see 'fastbootd', enter 'fastboot flash system system.img' (extract the system.img and put it in the folder you're in
    3. Reboot

    There is now a toggle to add SuperSU on boot in Phh Settings > Misc:
    Just enable it and reboot. (Keep in mind it breaks safteynet, if you need to use a banking app, disable it from settings and reboot)

    Downloads:
    Latest ROM

    For those who want stock camera with 48mp support on back and 16 on front
    1. Download ANX camera from here along with the 48mp addon
    2. flash in magisk both modules
    3. Reboot
    4. Give ANX camera all the permissions in app info
    5. First time might crash then re-open
    6. To fix portrait in front camera, download anx camera config from play store and search for portrait, enable all settings except for 'portrait night front'
    7. restart app

    @phhusson for his work on GSI (donate to this man, he works on dozens of devices), he worked closely with me to get everything working!

    Enjoy!

    P.S.
    I am not going to add any custom features from other roms so please don't comment about that!
