Can confirm that; tried w/o DFE, always ended up into recovery. Found all nikgapps (basic) version after 20201214 lose the call record functionality in the phone app.
How does one disable DFE to test if it works without it?

I'm having some trouble encrypting my phone, so it properly supports my work profile through in tune company portal.

How does one disable DFE to test if it works without it?

I'm having some trouble encrypting my phone, so it properly supports my work profile through in tune company portal.

I'm using the official TWRP 3.5.0_9-0 from 12/28/2020 but normally the version from Mauronofrio should work just as well.

So here are the steps (I think you just forgot step 6.):

1.) Wipe "Dalvik / ART Cache", "Cache", "System" and "Data" (in "Advanced Wipe")
2.) Format data (the menu where you have to type "yes")
3.) Reboot into TWRP
4.) Flash ROM, Magisk 21.4 and Nikgapps (use option to wipe data and cache at the end)
5.) Reboot into TWRP
6.) Format data again (the menu where you have to type "yes")
7.) Reboot into System
8.) Enjoy!

Two questions - but first, thanks @raystef66 for the work. Got 7.3 installed today, with full NikGapps, and no DFE.

1. Any way of fixing the below issue (red borders) without having Magisk installed? The issue I have is that intune Company portal detects my device as "comrpomised" when I have Magisk installed, even though there's no root enabled.

Screen off FOD works flawless even with or without DT2W.
The red border can be fixed when applying Magisk Hide in magisk manager.

2. GPay: With Magisk installed I'm able to activate NFC for GPay successfully, however without, it doesn't allow me to enable payments.

So, the "universal" fix would be to somehow make Company Portal (and the separate work profile it creates), play nice with Magisk in the first place. That would solve all issues.

Let me know if any ideas, and thanks again!

One other thing, for people struggling with the boot loop after first install:

I'm using the official TWRP 3.5.0_9-0 from 12/28/2020 but normally the version from Mauronofrio should work just as well.

So here are the steps (I think you just forgot step 6.):

1.) Wipe "Dalvik / ART Cache", "Cache", "System" and "Data" (in "Advanced Wipe")
2.) Format data (the menu where you have to type "yes")
3.) Reboot into TWRP
4.) Flash ROM, Magisk 21.4 and Nikgapps (use option to wipe data and cache at the end)
5.) Reboot into TWRP
6.) Format data again (the menu where you have to type "yes")
7.) Reboot into System
8.) Enjoy!

After reformatting data after installation, my phone got past the boot loop which I was experiencing earlier. Let's hope this is not an issue when updating to the next versions (dirty flash).

Edit:
FIX for Wireless Android Auto not working with Android 11:
Install the Android Auto Addon from NikGapps. Seems like it was not completely included in the even the "full" NikGapps package I installed.

I have one minor issue: All system sounds are played with some creaking noises in it.

I would have liked to play these sounds with a different media player for testing, but I can't even find the original files.

Changing package Name ist NOT magiskhide.
Magiskhide is called magiskhide.

Modded Version ist absolutly not necessary since version 21.4

Just installed this rom for the first time. Buttery smooth and fast as lightning, good work (y)! Only thing that doesn't seem to be working is smart charging, keeps charging past the limit. Anyone has the same problem?

Are you charging wirelessly? Try charging over the cable. I remember when charging wirelessly it wouldn't respect Smart Charge limits.

I am indeed, good call. Too bad because I always charge wirelessly, maybe it could be added in the future. Thanks for your help though (y) .

OK, google is not working.
No other problems for me so far.
Great ROM!😸

Fingerprint unlocking works properly.
Face unlock works fine.
Three finger gesture to take a screenshot also works.

Thank you, developers.

Noticing a couple minor glitches, both sporadic and difficult to reproduce. I do get occasional full freezes, where everything hangs for 15-20 seconds before it just reboots on its own, maybe one every day or two. More frequently, the back gesture sometimes doesn't work in an app until I switch out of it and then back to it. That's a pretty minor annoyance, in the grand scheme of things, and I don't know why it happens. Otherwise, the ROM works well, and unlike with the android 11 versions of Pixel Experience/Evolution X, wifi works.

Hi,

short “beginner“ question: is it possible to dirty flash from 6.13 to 7.3 without any other flashing procedures, keeping all apps etc?

Thanks in advance

    I find in Telegram groub solution for FP and it work for me.
    https://t.me/pnl2303files/81

    I add it here:
    Go to settings > crDroid settings > lock screen > change fingerprint pressed color to GREEN
    - After that rescan your fingerprint
