20211129 on my clover is a big leap forward. The lockscreen has a padlock instead of a dot, the microphone now works in Duolingo. My LTE data sim is working at full speed. My only issue is Google assitant it not working but that might need NikGapps Full rather than basic. I do not care as I do not use assistant. Duo voice and video calls work. GPS, WiFi, aptX are all functioning.

Cool...
Do you use clover or clover+ rom?

Just did a dirty flash from latest 18.1 to the latest 19.0 build with Nikigapp 20211018 basic and magisk v23 via TWRP. And now the night light is working and v19.0 is surprisingly fast. However, the only problem I'm facing is that the Google assistant isn't working and it keeps on crashing. Hope that it will solve in future.

Oh one more question, not sure if it's an issue or not. When using the Google app, the border (left and right side) seems to be very ”thick” or it doesn't fill up the entire screen. Pls see attached pic. Any idea how to fill up the sides?

If I swipe left to get to Google I get a display like yours. I have always thought that has thicker borders because the app itself is designed for phones and not tablets. Was it wider in 18.1? When you open the same thing from the Google icon the top and bottom are right across the screen, but the content is still narrow. On my phone the borders are narrow but still visible and the aspect ratio of each entry is the same.

Google assistant does not work for me too. Has anyone tried using NikGapps Full?

Can you send the log after google assistant crash?
I will check about the border, it may related to highaspect ratio overlay.

On v18.1, it will almost fill up the whole screen with very thin border just like on mobile phone.

I'm not using TWRP v3.6.0_9 but v3.5.2_9. not sure if the latest version works well. However, on my mi pad 4 plus, it too shows as mi pad 4. I don't think that's any issue or problem.

    Because most people only update to last official Stable ROM before moving to custom ROMs...

    Many users are unaware both that the last Stable is NOT the latest, and that the last official Developer (weekly) ROM fixes issues that especially affect devices with Pie (9)+:
    - later / compatible baseband,
    - magnetic cover detection,
    - fingerprint sensor (plus),
    - screen rotation,
    - call issues,
    - in app calling,
    - wifi
    ... and other improvements I may have missed...

    This means moving from Stable to Developer firmware is essential for all recent custom ROMs to avoid hardware and other issues.

    Latest Developer ROM (or Firmware only) is
    - MIUI 10.5
    - released 2019.8.29
    - baseband version 660_GEN_PACK-1.214729.1.215613.1

    Latest Stable ROM (or Firmware only) is
    - MIUI 10.3.2
    - released 2019.05.24
    - baseband version 660_GEN_PACK-1.186426.1.191687.1

    😛 PW

    Can 100% confirm issues with 10.3.2 (magnetic cover did not work) but with 10.5. magnetic cover works fine. I thought last stable is a must. So big thanks for clarification :)

    Uploading lineage-19.1-20220522-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip, it may fix the LTE issue.
    Have you made any changes/improvements regarding the microphone, may I ask?

    New update lineage-19.1-20220517-UNOFFICIAL-clover+.zip. See 1st post.

    Perhaps I will put latest firmware in the rom...once the rom installed it will flash the firmware as well. What do you think?

    Mic is working well for me...perhaps you need clean flash...

    @sabar is this a new version or something specific? Or a quick bug fix?
    PixelExperience_Plus_clover-12.1-20220521-1042-UNOFFICIAL.zip

    Major updates of blobs, under testing by other user...but should stable as I use it for lineageos 19.1.

    lineage-19.1-20220517-UNOFFICIAL-clover+.zip - Everything looks good except low microphone sound. Microphone gain needs to be increased in Xiaomi Parts settings which is a hassle. It becomes low again by itself after a while. So every time before using the mic I need to play with Mic Gain bar.

    Also, there’s a bit lag at app opening animations. When you open an app for the first time (if it’s not running in the background), its icon appears weirdly during the animation.

    I know you publish PE for different purposes but on PixelExperience_Plus_clover-12.1-20220521-1042-UNOFFICIAL.zip (and on all latest clover versions) the taskbar icons are cut/only like 60% top of them appears. There’s an obvious sizing problem on Mi Pad 4 Plus 10” version. Are you planning to publish a “+” version as you did in February @sabar_op?

    PixelExperience_clover+-12.0-20220222-0407-UNOFFICIAL.zip is a great rom for Mi Pad 10” version and the only problem is fingerprint sensor doesn’t act like a home button actually.

    I didn't build PE for 10" anymore due issue in fingerprint sensor that act like home button. PE source was disabled for that function.
