what all are not working mate?

For now, I have fixed almost everything except vibration. But it still needs more tests including usb otg, flashing packages, and backup/restore. There might be some issues in flashing, because Xiaomi uses the EROFS filesystem on Mix 4. So I had to modify TWRP sources and now it can mount EROFS, but not sure about flashing.

I will release the dt very soon, and anyone who wants can work with it.

Hey, i was able to create a boot.img file by using the twrp10 repository and the bootheader-workaround. I used fastboot to boot the image, but my phone just went black and i had to restart it. Sooooo, back to the drawing board for us.
so one of the dev who helped me by building aospa rom for g8x built a partially working twrp for mix 4
and these are the trees he made public for now, be careful, its trees need a lot of work i guess, dont know if the dev will make the required changes,
trees that he made public for now https://github.com/imjyotiraditya/msm-5.4-odin
also lets hope jjjhitel gets us the working twrp and trees :),
but from what jjjhitel was mentioning about mi 11 lineage rom, i think twrp will be of no use, as the mi 11 lineage rom uses its lineage recovery to install the rom, and flashing twrp is soft bricking mi 11 device , lets hope for the best

All of this is really nice to see... i had the Mi 11 Ultra (star) before i sold it and got the Mi Mix 4. I don't know why, but the members of the Mi11Ultra-forum are more focused on keeping MIUI... a discussion, why there's no sign of custom roms, ended with insults...
lol dont worry, every xiaomi device i owned before this device, are full screen notchless(only one device k20 pro), only bought k20 pro after seeing the custom rom support, i really hate miui, even after using it for a month or so, i just dont feel like using it, i really wish the devs who r doing their (gods) work for us come out as soon as they are done working on it.
thanks devs :)

I don't know, where i red it, but one dev told that there are some lines in the devicetreee somewhere, that prevent the device from working properly, when you try to use kernel/devicetree/vendor without the original software (in our case MIUI)... maybe that's the problem of the published stuff by Xiaomi.
