Many thanks for the great work & effort you put into this lineage 18.1 OS.
As an android newbie, I was wondering which version of TWRP was the most optimal for clover ?
OP instructions mention to use last TWRP which is now twrp-3.5.2_9-0-clover.img (released the 5th of april 2021) but after having read the 19 pages from this thread it seems that TWRP 3.4.0 is the most tested and recommended one. Also in link , twrp-3.4.0-0-clover.img is part of the download files ... Also one post was mentioning that TWRP 3.5.x was "not yet ready" for Android 11, so should I consider TWRP 3.4.0 instead ?

Sorry if this is "noob" question.

Thanks for your help and also thanks again for this great work !
I use TWRP 3.5.0_9 + lineage-18.1-20210315-UNOFFICIAL-clover and NikGapps-full-arm64-11-20210130-signed on my MiPad4 LTE and everything works as it should with Playstore certified. I do not use Magisk. The April update killed my Playstore certification, yet that appears to only affect some. My tablet is working well. No battery drain and no issues with GPS, WiFi, 4G, Hotspotting. It all just works. My tablet does not have a fingerprint reader.

Do you actually have PlayProtect Device is certified? Not sure how without Magisk + Universal SafetyNet Fix.

PlayProtect should be certified with latest ROM (has integrated SafetyNet Fix) without Magisk / MagiskHide, but you will need to do wipes I suggested if device is Not Certified, and you dirty flash. I believe you did wipes only w/ March ROM. PW

Yes, with March ROM. I tried April dirty flash, then wiped and tried again, then wiped it and went back to March.

good morning
I've been using this rom almost from the beginning on my pad4 + with very good results, keep this ahead.
With this latest update, everything is fine until magisk is put, there has been no way to get it, it stays in bootloop without being able to do anything else.
I have tried to change the BOOT I tried with the one that brings the rom as is, with the boot_clover_eas_20210401.img and with boot_clover_210413.img.
Recoverys I have tried 3.3.0 /3.4.0/ 3.5.0 and nothing I do not get.
I guess I'm doing something wrong, but what?
HELP

Are you using April Kernel Update (boot image) with March ROM by any chance? PW
No. March ROM with the internal kernel. I have been using ROMs on this device since I first bought it with the Chinese original software. I used Pixel Experience up to Android 10 and now this version of Lineage for Android 11. I have never once installed Magisk or any other root access and I have nearly always had a certified Playstore.

Very interesting... I must be missing something... Unless both Universal SafetyNet Fix and working fingerprint (Wayne?) were already integrated in ROM source... I need to add Universal SafetyNet Fix for that ROM, but running Magisk.

Strange you have SafetyNet pass w/ that ROM but can't get it with latest which includes both fixes too. 🤕 PW

It is fine for others, but not everyone. The only oddity I can see is that I live in Australia with a different local Playstore. That should not really effect certification. Another possible thing is the various models. Mine is an 8" MiPad4 LTE, not a Pro.
I will wait for the May release and do a clean flash and see what happens.

Anyone can fix bootloop with Gapp Full? Thanks for your help
Is that OpenGapps?

Test versions of OpenGapps don't allow bootup, nor does not installing GApps at all. But I've had no issues since flashing NikGapps-full-arm64-11-20210130-signed.zip.

NikGapps is recommended in OP, but I've found that it's actually required, at least in the absence of working alternatives. PW

    Just upload lineage-18.1-20210720-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip, changelog :
    - update fingerprint along with vendor security patch as per discussion.
    - minor update kernel to 4.4.275

    Thanks for updates 👍
    Play Store is not certified on this build without majisk/root.
    However, Play Store is certified on the previous build - 20210718.
    Looks like MiPad4 fingerprint works for those who use majisk, but Mi6x fingerprint works for those who wants to get certified Play Store without messing up with majisk modules.

    Is anyone using OpenGapps with this rom?
    I tried pico: it works, but sometimes initial settings notification appears in status bar, does some invisible job and disappears. Reverted to 20210718 build with nickgapps to get play store certified: no issues so far.

    This build only experimental (see previous posts) using clover fingerprint. Others should be same except kernel, and you can grab the kernel/boot.img and flash it through twrp to previous build.

    There is a thread elsewhere on XDA forums about how to fix rotation issues. It is a common problem with all MiPad ROMs caused by accidentally formatting a hidden folder called /persist
    Guys, for all hardware to work properly since Pie, you need at least late developer (weekly) firmware, the latest of which is 9.8.29 (2019-08-29, = MIUI 10.5) version, NOT latest Stable 10.3.2 MIUI.

    Note that both fw only (Firmware) and fw-vendor (Vendor) as well as full stock ROM (MIUI) are available from xiaomifirmwareupdater.com, and that Fastboot ROMs contain the complete set of factory images unlike recovery ROMs. See here for insight and link:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...al-mi-pad-4-plus-clover.4178757/post-84656233

    Late developer (weekly) fw-vendor (Vendor) images may help with rotation problems too, so try flashing in case of problems.

    Nb. Both fw only (Firmware) and fw-vendor (Vendor) can be flashed to upgrade (or downgrade if desired) independently of full stock ROM (MIUI) to fix / eliminate problems. NO need to flash full stock at all (AFAIK).

    Nb.2. After flashing Vendor you may get bootloop. Simply re-flashing (dirty) ROM + GApps [+ Magisk] fixed updated installation for me. 😀 PW

    Hi all,
    I'm running this rom since sometime. Actually I'm with the 0312, after that I've seen people had some problems. Does anyone using the lineage-18.1-20210615-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip version? How do you find it? 🤔
    Tnx
    Only updated yesterday w/ later developer fw-vendor images I posted about above on two devices.

    Dirty flashed one, no issues / great so far.

    Updated fw-vendor over Stock on other, got bootloop, still had twrp, clean flashed this LOS/NikGApps/Magisk and still bootloop with wipes as per OP. After Formatted data and flashed LOS/NikGApps/Magisk again, no issues / great so far!

    Concluded that coming from other ROMs, FORMAT data (not just wipe) is needed if wiping / mounting data in Official twrp fails. PW

    @sabar_op just a bit of suggestion, how about we put also way to fix magisk for those who have problem in the first post (if u dont mind) so this kind of confusion (especially for someone who newly come by here) wouldnt happen frequently and, if the method to fix it change, u could just change it in first post so nobody need to hear from one they do it like this but one like this which is confusing. just a little suggestion if u dont mind. thumbs up for the rom.
    This thread has much discussion on this and all other Magisk matters:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/magisk-general-support-discussion.3432382/
    More particularly, this one:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/magisk-module-universal-safetynet-fix-1-1-0.4217823/ has regular updates regarding SafetyNet / issues.

    Really, it's not the province of ROM Devs to keep up / instruct on ever-changing methods to pass SafetyNet, and users are best to appraise themselves of current SafetyNet status / passing methods / fixes in the above threads.

    Nb. Dev did have SafetyNet passing natively till recently with inbuilt spoofing, but this may now be broken.

    Devs are likely to be interested in fixing / reports about ROM bugs incl. inbuilt custom mods (eg USNF and other spoofing solutions), but even these may not be a priority. 😉

    At least SafetyNet still passes w/ Magisk root and module! 😛 PW

    LineageOS 18.1, see this link

    Installation instructions :
    - Download the zip(s).
    - Install latest TWRP for clover
    - Perform a backup of your current ROM (optional)
    - Wipe dalvik/cache (upgrade from lineageos 18.1) and wipe system/data if upgrade from other rom.
    - Flash ROM.
    - Flash GApps (NikGApps is recommended) is a must.
    - Optional: Flash latest Magisk for root.

    Everything should work.

    New update for LOS18.1 and PE11 dated on 20210312 (see 1st post for the link) with March security patch.

    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.

    New update : lineage-18.1-20210602-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip
