The official TWRP is based on 4.4 kernel, it will work in 4.19 kernel rom if the rom has same encryption type with the TWRP.
Before I build the rom with same encryption type with official TWRP then I change it follow the pix106's TWRP.
Thanks, makes sense. 👍...

I see pix106 has 3.6.2_9 (A11) for both 4.4 and 4.19, but has only updated 4.19 to 3.7.0_9 (A12)...

BTW OP here still points to his old version 3.6.2_9... PW

Have you installed the 4.19 version of TWRP?


Yes 3.6.2 was installed. Now installed latest version 3.7. And still it did not started to system.
Only Data wipe allowed to start system. But ofcourse all data lost.
Switched to 03.10 version. Maybe the problem is because of 10.10 version (because it does not work fine with GApps).

I installed 10.10 and it was not functional, so I wiped it and installed 03.10 and got it running, then dirty flashed 10.10 and it is working OK. That strategy was suggested by @Argaricolm
The camera is still an issue.

I also set up my tablet to feed music from my Tidal account to a DAC using LDAC. HiRes audio from Tidal shows as HiRes Audio on the DAC display so the MiPad is sending the good stuff via LDAC Bluetooth codec. Sounds very good. My MiPad is now a handheld jukebox driving my HiFi and doing it well.

If you like very hi-fi audio, I recommend using my magisk module DRC remover. All sound outputs (BT audio, USB audio, 3.5mm jack, even with a special pseudo driver) on this device (as it is) are under DRC (Dynamic Range Control, i.e., compression).

Edit: See No.76.

So far version from 03.10 works. No bootloops.
Can't format external SD card in it to use as an extra memory. Some error about null object appears during format.

Can the back up be disabled? It never worked for me. Why not use Google account backup? That works for me, but I could not stop the continuous notifications about backup failed.

I wrote above based on LineageOS 19.1 at that time. Now I've just updated my pad4 to LineageOS 20.0, and found that this latter ROM inverted the meaning of the DRC switch ("speaker_drc_enabled" in "/vendor/etc/audio_policy_configuration.xml") unlike the former one. A bug or a tweak? (why not turn off the switch?)

Under the default state all audio outputs are now without DRC, but are unusually with DRC when DRC remover is used.

Edit:
You can easily check the audio outputs with/without DRC by switching "on/off" on the fly if you use my root script USB SampleRate Changer (for not only USB DAC's, but also a 3.5mm jack, an internal speaker and Bluetooth earphones).

Thanks @sabar_op, I was able to update my pad4 LTE (Nikgapps core and Magisk) from 01.11.22 ROM by dirty flashing without problems.

I confirmed that Safetynet passed.

    Thank you for your kind reply. I have never worked with magisk modules before. Does my device have to be rooted to install GS RAM Drive?
    I think you have to read some relevant posts before doing any modifications to the ROM.
    Yes, using magisk module = magisk installed = rooted.
    For your information, I have installed the following:
    1) Magisk v25.2-delta-6
    2) Universal SafetyNet Fix v2.4.0 - for passing safetynet
    3) systemless hosts - for AdAway
    4) God Speed Mode - GS Ram Drive v7 - for 6GB swap (max. up to 20GB and I think 6GB is enough)
    Good luck and enjoy your journey :)

    Will this work evwn withiut installing/passing through the 3.10 i have been reading on the thread?

    EDIT:

    ive b::n readimg the entire 10 pages of this thread and saw an instruction saying you need to install firmware 310 or something (or is it lineage-20.0-20221003-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip?) But somehow i cqnt find the link to it.

    Installing the latests version outright is a bad idea and just throws me back to TWRP.

    Can someone point me to the right direction? Somehow OP doesnt have the link to the "base ROM we need to install before applying the latest builds. 😊
    This is how I installed this ROM:

    Format data before installing the Pix106 TWRP. This is to prevent any encryption problems as it is based on 4.19 kernel.

    Flash latest version of ROM and your GApps package from SD card or via OTG.

    Format data again. I don't think I did this but others have and it won't do any harm.

    Reboot

    OK, I get it now, thanks again.
    Another question, if I may:
    Is it possible, in this ROM version, to extend RAM by getting some memory from internal memory?
    Is there an option for that in the settings, somewhere, or in the developer options section?
    Yes, you can install some magisk module alternatively. For instant, I am using GS Ram Drive magisk module to get 6GB swap memory for my Mi PAD 4 w/o plus. The device becomes very smooth!
