Same problem here. Fortunately, I flashed the rom again without format data and it booted properly
I think it is just an artefact of the one ROM for all versions of the MiPad 4. Sabar used to make two versions but that is a lot of time and HDD space for him. I dirty flash the new version each month and the screen adjustments carry across. Occasionally a clean install is required.
It is not a function I use but in the settings under Display it appears deliberate - the setting is Double-tap on the status bar or lockscreen to turn off the display
Thanks for quick reply! No pun intended. I am thinking about either using this one or going with PE with Dynamic Partitions. I've used 18.1 before PE and it was good.
Just for info - I do not dirty flash NikGapps each time, just LineageOS. Earlier versions of LineageOS for the MiPad did require NikGapps be flashed each time as well, but that requirement ended long ago.I've updated the latest rom after uninstalling all 32bit only apps. I'm able to re-install the 32bit only apps again without problems now. I don't know the exact reason why the re-installation is okay. It seems that re-installation of NikGapps in the dirty flash process may occur some discrepancy in the Play Store.
Thanks @GregEden I just tried the step by pressing the cancel button.@stan79 When I do a dirty flash I reboot into TWRP and when it asks for the decryption code I ignore it and just select Cancel as one of the two options. I then get a message about using the default decryption key and then I can go to install and dirty flash the new version. You can test this yourself by booting into TWRP and selecting cancel and see what happens - you do not have to actually flash anything.
I noticed that a while ago, but I've been using Magisk together which needs to be flashed every dirty update. For safer updating, I've re-installed NikGapps and Magisk till now after wiping system & vendor partition and updating ROM.
