CesiumOS is a project that is designed to be exciting. It is something that was born out of a sea of similar-looking AOSP roms. We offer a unique, yet familiar experience for your phone. We cherry-pick features that we think will *actually* be useful in your daily lives, and nothing more. Since this is the beginning of something beautiful and exciting, we will continue to add more features in the future releases. We will strive to keep the ROM bloat-free, yet still have enough features that will keep you satisfied.

The least you could do is not make life hard for new Rom modders,

''Clean Install
1. Take a backup of your phone
2. Boot to TWRP and wipe - System, vendor, Data and Dalvik Cache
3. Flash ROM
4. Reboot System ''

This step just keeps giving System destroyed. i have had to flash Stock Global rom 3 times now and i am totally frustrated. So apparently, once you wipe system in advanced wipe, System is destroyed.
please can you direct me with the right procedure for someone who just finished waiting for 160 hours . Thank you

From fastboot, flash vbmeta.img, then flash twrp, and follow the instructions. Once you flash the rom flash disabledmverity and you should be good from now on!

wich one?? original vbmeta.img ?

If you are reffering to anyone upload vbmeta for RedmiNote8 then yes the original. I think that vbmeta is also inside the ROM and you can just grab it.
QUOTE FROM UNOFFICIAL TWRP FOR REDMI NOTE 8 :

if it's the first time you flash the TWRP or you are getting problems of TWRP lost or device doesn't boot after flashed magisk or something else you need to flash a modified vbmeta:

Code:
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

Then flash TWRP
Hope this helped. ;p
*edit*
what I do after flashing rom and gapps and whatever I like, lastly I flash disable-dm-verity. Google it for redmi note 8 I am sure you will find it somewhere!
Best of luck

Bug:
When screen locked, if you press the power button twice or more, a white screen will appear which you can do nothing about it, only reboot.

    Pass safetynet CTS profile test?, SElinux permissive or enforcing?
    Cheers.

    If you want your post to be taken seriously, never quote the whole OP. Please edit your post and remove the quote.

    Right now Google is having trouble with Safety Net checks. Even Pixel phones are failing to pass.
