Hi ! It seems I successfuly installed LOS17.1 on my RN8P, thanks to all of you and theimpulson !

I use LOS for 1 week and I just noticed today that opencamera or the main camera app can't access the front camera for selfies.

Do I do something wrong ?

:( I did not read anything about that.

Is there any solution for this ? Do I need to install MIUI instead ?

I'm disappointed :/

I goes back to Miui 12. (without relock bootloader)
Flash Twrp
Flash Magisk
Flash migrate with my backup Apps
Debloat most of the XiaoMi Apps
Run Nova launcher
Now I get all back as before.
Front Camera is working
Face unlock
Some bank apps with Magisk hided.

Unfortunately I still have an issue with the finger print. Here the problem :
-> when I try to configure it my phone reboot after few seconds.

Have you already encounter this problem and do you have any tips to fix it ?

Hey guys! This is an announcement that I am dropping support for begonia/in builds. This is due to the fact that I have lost the device from my possession last weekend during outdoor camping and travel trip after exams. Tried a while to find it without any success. Therefore I won't be updating it anymore. In case someone wants to pick up the work, feel free to do so. All of my sources are in the official LineageOS organization. For official 17.1, all you need to do is to enforce sepolicy. If you are able to achieve that, feel free to drop an email to the project for official support or ping me and I will forward your message to the lead developers. The same goes for the TWRP project. It was fun to work on this device. Thanks.

    XDA:DevDB Information
    LineageOS-17.1, ROM for the Redmi Note 8 Pro

    Source Code:

    ROM OS Version: Android 10
    ROM Kernel: Linux 4.x
    Based On: AOSP

    Version Information
    Current Stable Version: 17.1
    Stable Release Date: 2020-08-11

    Created 2020-03-26
    Last Updated 2020-08-12
    Current Bugs include:
    • The camera doesn't have full resolutions support yet
    • SELinux is Permissive

    Don't report bugs related:
    • to CTS failures (LineageOS does not tamper with CTS results)
    • with Magisk (It sets a number of props on boot like changing build type to the user resulting in broken adb root etc)
    • with Custom Kernel, MODs (Report that to MOD maintainer)
    • with non-recommended vendor or builds (Use what is told in instructions)
    So I went over to GitHub to download the latest and greatest and I noticed that the past couple of versions, a recovery.img is now included with the assets. I've searched up and down the commits, bugs, and anything else in English that I could find but nothing on that rather important file. Do I need it for this latest install? I probably should have asked this on Git, but I'm not really familiar with it and where to post what.

    Thanks again for all your awesome work!

    Well, the story behind recovery.img is simple. Guys at LineageOS wanted to have their own recovery which can install custom zips and stuff and is closer to AOSP as in source code modifications for it to be easier to maintain and support. So, they came up with it. It's now also a must to be working if you want official LineageOS support. So, I am trying to get it working as well. Current versions don't boot at all. Looking around and I hope it will be working soon. I will announce it here, so don't worry about that.

    Also, considering Xiaomi released the Q kernel sources, I am working on it, for us to be able to use Q vendor and kernel sources to get more things working. It will take time. I will post regular updates on the thread if I get something working as well.
    Pushed a new update on GitHub Releases. Here is the changelog:

    - Updated safe media volume warning level
    - Hided sRGB toggle in developer options
    - Fixed Ambient display and enabled Always on Display
    - Fixed brightness issues by importing overlays from Google Pixel (marlin)
    - Added Trust Hal, see it in Privacy Settings
    - Enable option for full-screen aspect ratio
    - Added notch overlay, this makes center clock and network speed indicator unavailable as they are unsupported with notched devices
    - Added led notification and battery led customization options, see it in Notifications settings
    - Turned on WiFi MAC randomization
    - Hex-edited MTK RIL lib to fix incoming calls
    - Upstreamed kernel to v4.14.158

    The hotspot is also working, however, it's buggy. You need to remove SIM cards to make it work. That will be fixed in future builds (hopefully).
