Hi Darth thanks for the update, I successfully installed it on my phone, I'm still having Device not Certified on my GPlay app, I came from CrDroid Rom, and decided to switch to Havoc, though I followed the exact procedure on Havoc installation

    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

    1
    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
