Thank you for the LOS R. Very good rom.
Clean install with Nikgapps omni, found download in Chrome to sd card showing "download pending" and chrome will force close.

Thanks a lot for working on this. I tried the following versions, but they all bootloop (bootsplash, lockscreen visible for a few seconds, then reboots):

lineage-18.0-20201017-UNOFFICIAL-clover_rev0.zip
lineage-18.0-20201018-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip
lineage-18.0-20201019-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip

This is with a WiFI-only miPad 4, latest TWRP, complete wipe of everything first.

Please keep in mind that there are many reports of bootloops etc using TWRP with Android 11.

TWRP officially supports all devices running Android up to 10, except devices LAUNCHED with 10 or later (having dynamic/logical partitions). There are no versions officially supporting devices running Android 11 to date:
TWRP 3.4.0 does not yet bring support for dynamic/logical partitions, which is required to support devices that launch with Android 10. It does, however, fix support for legacy devices that upgraded to Android 10, but retain the old partition scheme.
https://www.xda-developers.com/twrp...s-support-legacy-devices-upgraded-android-10/

Latest TWRP 3.4.0 arrived in June 2020 w/ support for devices upgraded to Android 10 (only). There's been no further versions. See here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/ap...v1-universal-systemless-t3432382/post83725859

The solution for most using custom Android 11 based ROMs has been to KEEP STOCK Recovery and use ADB fastboot boot TWRP (NOT flash) command from PC when needing custom recovery functions to flash ROMs etc. This seems to work for most despite having no TWRP fully supporting Android 11.

Nb. To achieve root with MagiskSU, this method is probably even more critical as users are reporting bootloops with TWRP custom recovery (flashed) and Android 11 when flashing Magisk pretty much accross the board.

Nb2. Achieving root with MagiskSU can alternatively be done without custom recovery by flashing Magisk Manager patched boot.img (extracted from ROM) using ADB fastboot flash image command from PC. This may be a less fraught method.

I'm still on LOS 17.1, but the above outlines the approach I intend to take / try soon.

Hope it helps, PW

Can you take the log?
Never try for mipad 4 wifi only, I use mipad 4 wifi-lte, twrp 3.4.0 with previous los17.1 installed and no issue so far...

This is probably because didn't install a *Gapps package.

Hmm, not sure, LineageOS 17.1 works fine on this tablet without Gapps.

Yeah, but apparently LOS 18.0 beta doesn't.
I tried LOS 18.0 (beta) without gapps first and it would bootloop after reaching the home-screen. Flashing gapps would solve the issue (for me) but I don't use gapps so ... I went back to LOS 17.1.
I also experienced the issue with the sdcard not being properly detected.

    New update for LOS18.1 and PE11 dated on 20210312 (see 1st post for the link) with March security patch.
    14
    New update : see 1st post for the link
    - September security patch.
    - Add support for app signature spoofing (not tested).

    I also upload new kernel 4.4.283 for anyone who want to try it.

    FWIW, I've used MagiskHide Props Config Magisk module to change Xiaomi Mi 6X fingerprint (xiaomi/wayne/wayne:8.1.0/OPM1.171019.011/V9.5.11.0.ODCCNFA:user/release-keys) to Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 China (Xiaomi/clover/clover:8.1.0/OPM1.171019.019/V10.1.1.0.ODJCNFI:user/release-keys) from MHPC repo.

    Either value works fine to pass safetynet along with Universal SafetyNet Fix module. 👍 PW

    Yes...just try it and it pass the safetynet...and build new rom along with some updates in blobs and integrate it with EAS kernel...

    I am waiting update April security patch to release the rom.
