Hello there!
I have installed HavocOS 4.14 on my Redmi 8 about a month ago, and it works like a charm, expect for one thing... I can't set a screen lock, and I have tried all kinds of different methods, but when setting a screen lock, it just says "screen lock already set, try again with new screen lock", but there is no screen lock whatsoever. I hope that somebody can help me, because I think I am going crazy after trying all these things:
-flashing another ROM,
-reflashing ROM,
-wiping, then reflashing rom,
-updating TWRP, then wiping, and reflashing ROM,
-deleting all files inside the data/misc/keystore folder,
-deleting files according to this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/remove-bypass-lockscreen-with-recovery.3530008/ (weird thing: I didn't have the gatekeeper.password.key and the gatekeepet.pattern.key),
-flasing two "fixes" that I found,
and it still not working.

you didnt format data and prolly also flashed dfe
dfe kills pw
Thank you for your response!
I formatted the data, so that can't be the issue, however I flashed "disable DM verity force encrypt ", so I guess that is the issue... Do you have an idea about how I should fix/undo it? I am very new to this, sorry for the stupid question.
