Is there a kernel or something to consume much less battery at rest, is that I do not use Wi-Fi or anything just use it to read PDF and I need the maximum possible battery

Any instructions on flashing this room from a stock? I survived so long on it, but seems like all cool kids moved on long time ago, so I couldn't find details. Thanks

Why can't some apps see the flash drive?

When I connect a flash drive with movies, VLC show it to me like an OTG Drive and I can select the movies without problems.

But using emulators like Retroarch, epsx, Drastic, Mupen64plus FZ, none of them can see the flash drive. It isn't appear in the /mnt or /storage directories.

What am I doing wrong???

OK...

Magisk busybox, su, "sm set-force-adoptable true" solved this.

one last req

hi @Artemka2008.. could do us one last favour by fixing the audio mixer paths setup, if possible fallback to the old days audio hal based by tinyhal. because i just cant never do a voip like discord call, whatsapp call, etc.. i will only hear the other side for about few secs before the audio will be cut out, possibly the output is wrongly rerouted. plus im not sure if the other caller still can pick up my output. muchly appreciated if its possible to be done.:cowboy:

Edit: found the answer on this thread.. we got 3 variant of Atmel touch device & 1 Synaptic, too bad.

Touch doesn't work when booted on o.s. but working perfectly on recovery. I've just replace my display with a new one unfortunately it has different touch controller / chip embedded on the ribbon that connects to the board. The old one is Artmel & the new one says Synaptic, already tried flashing the latest build of this ROM.. no luck. Haven't tried reverting into MIUI ROM Wich is KitKat.

LOS charging bug.

Hello I just installed this on my mocha last week. Did it for netflix since I came from AEX 8.1 and that doesn't have hardware acceleration.

Flashed the latest build no problems for a week then last night I was playing a song on Youtube on the background with vanced while the screen is off, I do this all the time. After a few hours I checked it again and the Mi Pad shows charging and notif light for charging is on even though it is unplugged. Tried plugging it in and no change, also it doesn't seem to charge anymore. Tried flashing 2018 version, reflashed 2019 version, didn't fix the issue. Changed to old smoke kernel, it fixed the charging but then only one cpu works. I know it is due to LOS since I flashed my old AEX backup and charging works as it should.

Can you please help me? I liked aex because it is fast and smooth but I mostly use this mi pad for media consumption (only youtube works perfectly) and LOS has hardware acc. which allows netflix, 9gag, fb, twitter, beetv etc to work so I want to try and fix this.

I flashed the rom and now it show that I don't have any recovery installed, I tried to install the recovery via fastboot, but it doesn't install at all and I get the boot screen and rom is booted up instead... Really in a pinch please help

How are you trying to access the recovery? Using the power menu to reboot to recovery doesn't work for me also so I turn off the device then do the traditional volume up + power button to access the recovery.

I couldn't flash the last build of this on my mi pad 1. The 03.11.28 recovery would not boot or it would take several attempts to get it to boot. Then if I managed to flash the rom it would constantly reboot. So I used the other links in the first post.

I unzipped "BootBlobs-SHIELD-mocha.zip" and flashed tos.img and recovery.img in fastboot. TWRP booted perfectly and I flashed the LOS rom found in the same Google Drive directory, lineage-14.1-20171213_202900-UNOFFICIAL-mocha.zip. And it booted without problems. So then I went back to recovery and flashed the latest gapps and magisk. And things are great.

I know there are later versions of LOS14.1 and recovery than the ones I have installed but I'm frightened to try them. Might come back to it later.

Thanks OP, love seeing this get updated, there is an old remaining bug that if you have a screen lock and magnetic case the screen sometimes goes black and becomes unresponsive, I don't think anything has crashed just the system gets mixed up and thinks the screen is activated so you can't unlock with buttons or any other way

    What is "tile for activating\deactivating battery charging"?
    - this is system icon(like performance profiles) which permits\prohibits the supply of current to the battery at the time when the charger is connected.

    Why do we need that tile?
    - if you play, watch a movie or perform another costly action, then activating this mode will save the battery from unnecessary wear because energy will go directly from the charger. But you need a fairly powerful charger, if the power of the charger is not enough, then partially the consumption will be compensated by the battery.

    What happens if you do not install TosForPSCI-0.1?
    - at best, only one CPU core will be active. At worst, the recovery will not be started (if it has not been updated too) and the system too.

    How to roll back on the firmware version, which came out before November?
    - download TosForPSCI-0.2 and recovery. You'll be able to flash older ROMs after installing them

    Why do I need to lower the PSCI version from 0.2 to 0.1?
    - Using version 0.1 fixes a problem with shutting down a device.
