Hi guys !
I finally successed to install this GSI. But I modified the guide : I flashed Permissiver v5 to install this.
That finally works ! I'm so happy !!
Thanks a lot, and I'll report some bugs, if there is...

Hi !
I wiped Cache, Dalvik, System and Internal Storage and I formated data.
I reboot into TWRP.
I copy the files (the rom, certification patch and the opengapps and Permissiver).
I flash GSI as a system image to system partition and i flash all the zips.
I make a wipe to Cache and Dalvik and everything should works !!
PS = I have flashed vbmeta.img to the vbmeta partition when I flashed TWRP. I'll put here vbmeta and the Permissiver v5.
Hope I can help...

Hey
I'm writing this here because I have some bugs in my HavocOS experience
When i want to change the brightness, it's always on the maximal, even if I want to have a little brightness
I have another bug.... There is no audio support when I connect my bluetooth headphone with my phone...
I don't know from where goes the bug...
Hope I help...

Here I bring to you the official Havoc-os 4.X ROM Android 11 and fully functional on Redmi 8

The intention of this post is to make a step-by-step tutorial on the installation of this excellent GSI ROM on Redmi 8 and give assistance in the installation process

All the development credits for this wonderful ROM go to the Havoc team

Remember I am not a developer, if you are presenting any bugs let us know and you can contact the Havoc team on Telegram

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, the version that i tested Havoc-OS-v4.5-20210208-Official-arm64-ab.img.xz

Bugs


videos recorded with the default camera do not play

Update: Install the NGCam_7.4.104-v1.8-fix.apk Once the application is installed open it take a photo close the application, this will create a folder in the SD called Gcam, inside the Gcam folder create a folder and call it Config7 and inside this place the XML file Redmi 8 GCam 7.4.104.314953318 G_Modder.xml restart the application and you're done

the only bugs that have is slow motion record not work for now

Automatic brightness does not work

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 ( use root explorer ) and reboot ..... problem solved
the necessary files are at the end of the tutorial

Steps

Note: I did the installation coming from Mui 12.EU, and there was no problem in the installation process or in the boot process

If you come from Miui12 .EU or any other GSI Rom go to step 4, if you come from the Rom stock follow the this steps

1- 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

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

3- Install a custon recovery, if you dont know how to, follow this post: https://c.mi.com/thread-2850424-1-0.html


4- Make wipe only to Cache, Dalvik, System, Data and Internal SD

5- Format data,( if it doesn't format the data you will have bootloop) then Reboot into Recovery

6- Copy all the files to the phone (Havoc-OS-v4.X-20200522-Official-arm64-ab.img you can find it by unpacking the zip), Magisk,Magisk Path Fix, Permisiver, Certification Patch.zip, opengapp (recommended nano or pico)

7- Install system image to system partition (on TWRP go to install-Install image-System) .

8- Flash Permisiver v5 (on TWRP go to install selec permisver_v5.zip)

9- Resize system partition to flash opengapps (on TWRP go to Wipe-Advanced Wipe-Select System on the list-Repair or Change File System-Resize)

To Root

once you have installed an resized the system

10- Flash the Magisk path fix (on TWRP go to install selec MagiskA11_PATH_fix.zip)

11- Flash Magisk (on TWRP go to install selec Magisk-v23.0.zip)

12- Flash Opengapps

1-Flash Certification Patch

1 - Make a wipe to Cache and Dalvik

1- Reboot

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

Hola mi pana buenas noches, se que si entiendes español :). MIra, logré instalar la rom en mi telefono y todo bien. A excepción del brillo automatico, que aunque nos indicas como arreglarlo no me funcionó haciendo los pasos que allí nos dices. Al igual noté que el bluetooth no conecta con dispositivos de reproducción de medios.

Aun asi mi pana, excelente aporte y la fluidez de la interfaz es notable por lo menos en mi caso. Tanto que me va mejor que con MIUI.

    Magisk doesn't work on Android 11
    Finally managed to flash Magisk on Havoc 4.1 with the help of youtuberking (telegram and YouTube).

    How: just flash Magisk path fix before magisk and it's good to go.

    Havoc GSI based in Android 11 is almost dead, heard that developer who was maintaining this Rom had left the group.
    I have tried many other GSI roms and thencame back to Havoc 3.12,,,,, seems like I got addicted to Havoc.
    Hi, Havoc is Alive now stays on 4.5 version really smooth and the battery drains is excellent see the OP
