What is working:
Everything works perfectly

Bugs
Automatic brightness is not working, (brightness must be adjusted manual for now)

Update
to fix the automatic brightness on your device, after installing the ROM, put in the folder SYSTEM-OVERLAY the treble-overlay-xiaomi-redmi 8.apk and set the permission for the apk on 644 and reboot ..... problem solved
the necessary files are at the end of the tutorial

Remember I am not a developer if you are presenting any bugs let us know and you can contact the Havoc team at the links described above

Steps


I am not responsible for any damage caused to your device by not following the steps or negligence at the time of this process, All the steps were carried out and tested on my personal device and are confirmed, My device Redmi 8 3/32 global version, the version that i tested Havoc-OS-v3.5-20200522-Official-arm64-ab.img.xz

First make a backup of all the necessary information in case something goes wrong you can easily recover,Charge the battery at least 80%
All your data will be deleted during the process
the necessary files are at the end of the tutorial

1) Unlock the Bootloader if you have not already done it or do not know how to, follow this post:http://en.miui.com/unlock/


2) Install a custon recovery and flash vbmeta.img together

Note: TWRP is recommended for this process but you should be aware that depending on your type of screen there may be problems (TWRP work fine on Tianma display), so you can also use Orange fox,
Note2: it is recommended not to use Hyper Shell for the installation of vbmeta.img it can cause problems, cmd can be used in the root folder plattform tools
Note3: If you already have the recovery installed and you are only going to flash vbmeta.img it is recommended to redo the full TWRP installation process together at vbmeta.img, restart in the recovery you can see that the encryption of the data is no longer available if you had it, and then boot in the ROM (in my particular case I did not do it first time and then could not put the files necessary for the installation in the internal memory)
Note4: use only This conmand to flash vbmeta.img " fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img" if you disable the secure boot loader with the Disable_Dm-Verity command then when starting in the ROM you will not be able to configure any lock or passsword for your devices.

3)Format data, if it doesn't format the data you will have bootloop

4)Make wipe only to cache, dalvik, system, data
5) Copy all the files to the phone (Havoc-OS-v3.5-20200522-Official-arm64-ab.img you can find it by unpacking the zip, permisiverv5, magisk,Certification Patch.zip, opengapp recommended nano or pico)
6) Install system image to system partition.
7) Install permissiver V5
8) Resize system partition to flash opengapps.
9) Flash Opengapps
10) Flash Certification Patch
11) Reboot
12) Install Magisk (optional if you want rooted your ROM)

the boot process takes 5 to 10 minutes the first boot in case of any problem in any of the stages you can reinstall Miui version fastboot with Mi flash tool and start again


How upgrade (Same Android Version)

1 Make a Wipe on Dalvik and cache only.
2 install the 3.x version system image on the system partition
3 Install permissiver V5
4 Resize system partition to flash opengapps.
5 Flash Opengapps ( if you dont flash the gapps you will have a fc on google apps )
6 Flash Certification Patch
7 Reboot

I tried installing HavocOS GSI before and it didn't boot. No wonder because there's a lot more to the steps. I'm gonna try this later. Thanks.

Volte calls on jio do not work but internet works
the possibility of using VoLTE depends on the following factors:
Your location, the account you have with your operator and the model of your Phone
The operator, operator account, location, and phone model of the person you are calling
Some operators support VoLTE only in certain cities or in certain area codes. Contact your operator for information about your area and your account.
You can verify the VoLTE activation according to your operator using in dialer * # * # 4636 # * # * go to devices information

volte not working on any gsi

volte works fine on stock rom but not on gsi. this is the only missing feature and reason why many avoid gsi's. I dont understand why can there be a fix for volte. some operators are truly 4g and support only volte like jio in india. any way to fix this?
thanks
P.s : I have not tested this rom but I know it wont work cause its another GSI.

Right now, I'm using This rom.
It's very much customizable , but have some few bugs, and some things should added with it!
Fristly, Internet Speed meter showing speed when i've speed over 100 kbps
Secondly, I don’t find any ringtone changer in this rom ( very much disappointed right now for this problem):(
Thirdl, When I was playing PUBG Mobile, sometimes display isn’t rotating
Fourthly , I can't find gaming performance better than MIUI ( It hurted me coz I listened that HavocOs is gaming os and I'm not getting better performance while gaming):(
And The big problem is, I can't use any magisk module like Viper4andriod Fx and other.
Except those, I liked this rom?
I think that in future, this problems will no remain??
Thank you

I installed it and it works fluently! But there are some issues that needs to be fixed ASAP!
1) The contact app doesn't show contacts saved in SIM card..it only shows contacts which are saved in the device or in gmail.
2) The video recording doesn't work accurately. When I finish recording a video and watch it, it doesn't save the recording accurately. Example- if i record for 30 seconds, the video will be saved as 1 minute video and the first 30 seconds of the video will be a freeze frame.
3) The ambient display (always on display) doesn't work.
4) Fingerprint is slower than stock MIUI and sometime needs to touch twice to unlock the phone.

Please fix these issues as these are some important features.. Besides, everything works just fine!

    Hy. I found a strange bug on both havoc os 3.12 and 4.1. When I connect a pair of headphones to my phone the sound works perfectly outputting from the headphones but when I try to play songs in a car radio with a headphone jack cable the sound is coming from my phone's speaker.
    Hey !
    I had the same bug.
    To repair it, you need to root your Redmi.
    After, in a terminal in your phone, write : su (enter)

    And then type setprop persist.sys.overlay.devinputjack true (enter)
    Reboot your system and it should be repaired !
    Enjoy!
