I finally got to testing with an older recovery. I flashed TWRP 3.3.1-0, then flashed CarbonROM 20210920-1731 & FlameGApps 20211016 via TWRP (wiped data, Dalvic, cache, system, internal storage before flashing).
After booting i skipped most configuration steps and only set a passcode. Then I tried to encrypt the tablet, but after leaving the device stuck at boot screen for more than 20 hours, I gave up and powered it off.
How long is the encryption process expected to last? I am afraid I am about to damage the screen if I keep experimenting...

I redid my tablet, took a couple minutes on a fresh install and encryption worked fine. Please make sure to follow the install instructions at the beginning of the thread and have the correct twrp.

Also make sure you setup the a pin lock code before encryption.
 
I recently had to wipe and reinstall my Mi Pad 4 Plus, since I couldn't get any audio in games.
During this process I tested a whole bunch of ROMs and GApps, and mostly for my own documentation I'll post what worked best here.

I was running Havoc-OS-v3.9-20201107-clover-Unofficial.ici.zip (thanks @ici for this wonderful ROM) with NikGapps-core-arm64-10-20200607-signed.zip.
When the audio issues started, I wiped and reinstalled this ROM again but the issue remain.

Then I wiped/formatted and tested Havoc-OS-v4.10-20211026-clover-plus-Unofficial.ici.zip, but this ROM wouldn't boot at all on my device regardless if I had no GApps or any of latest NikGapps/FlameGApps.

I moved on to Cherish-OS-v2.10-20211012-0804-clover-plus-UNOFFICIAL-Vanilla.ici.zip and this ran OK for couple of days, but minor issues (messy dark theme, device not charging) forced me to wipe again.

I'm currently on CARBON-CR-8.0-PAX-RELEASE-clover-20211120-0153.zip with NikGapps-core-arm64-10-20211018-signed.zip and it's been flawless so far (thanks @rcstar6696).

The TWRP I'm using is twrp-3.5.2_9-0-clover.img and firmware package fw_clover_miui_MIPAD4_V10.3.2.0.ODJCNXM_371ac63e9e_8.1.zip.
I also flashed Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_11.02.2020.zip before flashing Magisk-v23.0.zip to remove device encryption.

Hopefully I can find this post when I'm updating my Mi Pad 4 Plus in the future :)

I was on LOS 17.1 ('lineage-17.1-20200512-UNOFFICIAL-clover.zip') and looking to upgrade, on account of some quirks and obsolete security. I was planning to go with a LOS unofficial build (see post #1046 and following, although links are dead by now), but eyebiz post above prompted me to check CarbonROM repo at https://get.carbonrom.org/device-clover.html.

The latest release being 'CARBON-CR-8.0-PAX-RELEASE-clover-20220321-0824.zip' -- dated March 21st as you can see -- I decided to flash it instead.

I was on OrangeFox, so I decided to update first to 'TWRP-3.6.1_9-clover-fbe-20220304.img' I got from the MiPad4 dedicated Telegram support group.

Then I got the ROM, A10 NikGapps, DFE "11.02.2020" and Magisk v23 and flashed them all, after backing up apps and data with Migrate-NG.

It all went smoothly, took less than two hours and the tablet is back in operation.

Everything is apparently working as expected, this is just a status report.

Kudos fly out to everyone involved in making this work as well as it does. Thanks. :cool:

After 4 weeks and one OTA update use here's a status report:
  • Couldn't get GPS to work, no apps are getting location -- weather apps don't work;
  • External USB OTG drives are accessible but have reduced functionality (not available for sharing, no browsing, etc; this isn't specific to Carbon, LOS had the same problem);
  • Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity work, but feel rather unstable.
I'm thinking of moving back to LOS, after all. 🥺

EDIT: and the tablet is dead -- no light, no boot, nothing -- after it suddenly switched itself off, apparently from overheating. So, looks like that's it. 😩

I have only one problem on Carbon rom, and I really need it for works. It seems google password manager seems not working. there's no suggestion for saved password when login to android apps that needs to login. Anyone have a way to solve this problem?

I redid my tablet, took a couple minutes on a fresh install and encryption worked fine. Please make sure to follow the install instructions at the beginning of the thread and have the correct twrp.

Also make sure you setup the a pin lock code before encryption.
I had another try with encryption but with similar results :( . This is what I did:
1. Downloaded:
TWRP-20191001-3.3.1.0-clover.img from the FlokoROM thread
CARBON-CR-8.0-PAX-RELEASE-clover-20220620-0220.zip
open_gapps-arm64-10.0-pico-20220215.zip

2. Extracted Boot.img from ROM zip.
3. Flashed the Boot.img from ROM via fastboot (fastboot flash boot boot.img)
4. Flashed TWRP Recovery via fastboot (fastboot flash recovery TWRP-20191001-3.3.1.0-clover.img)
5. Booted into Recovery
6. Formatted System,Data and wipe Dalvik, Cache from recovery (Wipe Option)
7. Flashed CarbonRom zip
8. Flashed Gapps zip
9. Rebooted
10. Connected to WiFi, configured PIN
11. Started the encryption process. The tablet showed a black screen with a green robot for a few seconds and then rebooted
12. The tablet got stuck at boot screen (see attached picture)
13. 8 hours later I forced the shutdown
14. Encryption is shown as enabled, PIN is requested at boot, but the tablet does not enter deep sleep and therefore the battery drains quickly
