Great Work @gardiol

Been using Official LineageOS 18.1 for ~ 1 week now, it's all working well however recently I have started to have random freezes within apps like Reddit/Twitter/Chrome/TikTok where the UI would freeze, not responding to any of my touches then after a few seconds it would start to work and respond to my previous touches in quick succession. As a result I have had to move back to stock?

Have you noticed this/come across this before?

I do have thoose as well (with no extra magisk modules installed) A lot of miui users report them as "ghost touches" (occuring since Android 11 update) Xiaomi hasn't released a patch yet, so it seem's firmware related.

Something else: my battery drains a lot faster with Lineage 18.1 (coming from 17.1) on two phones. Anyone else who noticed this?
 
Did gringo80 ever built a recovery for surya? I dont think so. Brigudav is building twrp for surya since a long time. Have you checked his github?

Thread just by:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recovery-unofficial-twrp-3-5-2-0-surya-karna-r-11.4342471/

By the way Brigudav's TWRP has no thread and, weird, an old one that has been opened by another user trying to help all Poco X3 users pointing to it have been closed by Brigudav's request to mods.

And as already written: both current developers' TWRPs have NO sources, at least not easily available and updated (if someone has links anywhere, please share!).

This is really a shame as they are obviously evolving on top of other developers' code, official TWRP.
Their additional code could be helpful for POCO X3 in general and for whole community, other recovery projects.
Besides much better transparency and being better trusted.

This could even help they themselves or others to have an official TWRP and/or OrangeFox.

You should enable USB debug in developers settings. This is due to the following tickets:
one and two
which i submitted to upsream LOS but are still pending merge.

Brigudav is active on Telegram, sadly most support & devs moved there nowadays only a few like me still support XDA fully.

Anyway, i am on brigudav TWRP since ever because gringo's is totally forgotten in the deeps of XDA, except for those few users who still use mainly XDA. If there are not sources available for one TWRP i owuldn't be inclined to try it, and that's a pity.

Anyway that man seems very capable technically but highly unable to cope with peer pressure and doesn't acknowledge how open source development works.

Dear pnin, you can google yourself if you are so interested.
Here is it for you: link

I can Google alright -- actually, I earn my living doing it. What I have trouble doing is making sure of meanings of some vague allusions...

In fact, I have been trying to keep POCO X3 forums informed of brigudav TWRP development, as you can confirm, for instance, at https://forum.xda-developers.com/posts/85793809 (not to mention my overall index topic...).

i hope upstream accepts those commits, as some apps consider usb debugging = rooting (and yes it's dumb. . .)
... will never be, wich is security harmful by default !!! who is the idiot here ???

furthermore, the build type must be "user" and not "userdebug" ... los team is always in the wrong path !

because the lineageos team restricts the optmization to its minimum... no matter what kernel you install. you will always have such issue : battery drain, overheat, lag, freeze ...etc

you have to edit the whole ramdisk to fully benefit from your device. otherwise you are not faraway from stock miui talking about performance & battery ... if not worse !!!

This is a good read about differences between build types:

In short, between user and userdebug there is no difference except adb enabled by default (not adb debug, only adb).

And no, keeping adb debug on is not a security risk since any request must be ecplicitly allowed by manual user intervention.

Anyway upstream los should merge those patches in my opinion, as soon as they are good to be merged.

    Insane battery life on this.

    5h13m screen time, 53% remaining. And that's in an area with not so good coverage. 2h Reddit, 1h Youtube, 1h Twitch.

    Never touch a running System :)
    That is an undeniable truth.

    Except for everyone of us hanging around here in XDA :LOL:

    I've just flashed official lineage-18.1-20211101-nightly.
    WiFi doesn't work. The app freezes the whole UI and has to be stopped / closed in order to be able to use the phone again.
    Same thing happened with the 20211025-nightly.
    I never experienced anything like that with gardiol's unofficial builds though ....
    Any thoughts?

    Flash latest A11 Firmware.



    @xadityax

    Same here on Build 25/10

    Sorted!

    1. Wipe -> Advanced -> Dalvik, Cache, Data
    2. Install MiUI recovery file
    ...... No reboot
    3. Install LineageOS
    4. Format ("yes")
    5. Reboot to System.

    Thanks very much mates!

    I flashed LineageOS 18.1 the other day, and I noticed I have only Widevine Level 3.
    With LineageOS 17 I had Level 1, if I remember correct.

    Did I made something wrong / should I reflash it?

    I flashed the latest EU MIUI before flashing LOS 18.1. And I use Magisk root and the props module.

    I have L1.

    I flashed Miui Global --> LOS

    Maybe this help.

    LineageOS 17.1 official trees / unofficial builds for surya and karna.

    LineageOS 18.1 Official.

    We are official!


    17.1 will never be official.
    18.1 is official.

    WARNING - NOTE
    Due to two still unmerged tickets on LineageOS Gerrit, you MUST enable USB debugging in developers options to avoid high battery drain if you flash official build!​

    /*
    * Your warranty is now void.

    • VoLTE
    • VoWIFI
    • FM Radio

    • NFC (Surya only)

    Known issues:

    Camera Notes
    ANX camera is not recomended and will most probably NOT work.
    To get a fully working camera try one of the gcams here. Do not forget to copy&load the associated xml file!

    Official LOS uses oss camera service, so xml written for other custom roms might not work. The gcams at the above link have modified xmls for LOS18.1.


    Download:

    There is also a MIcroG build if you don't like Google Apps!
    Note: on the same download links you can find also MicroG builds for both 17.1 and 18.1! If you care for official microg builds, check here they will be ready when they will be ready.

    There is also, for help and support, the:
    Instructions:
    • NOTE: it is MANDATORY to flash latest stable firmware for your region!
    • For 17.1: flash VENDOR + FIRMWARE from Android 10 (Q)
    • For 18.1: flash FIRMWARE from Android 11 (R) - no vendor required.
    • Download this build and Magisk (optionally) and gapps (optionally).
    • Put the zip on your MicroSD (suggested) or connect via USB to PC.
    • Boot to recovery (latest TWRP only is suggested! OrangeFox has issues).
    • Wipe Dalvik, Cache and format data. This IS NOT OPTIONAL!
    • Reboot recovery after wipe and format.
    • Flash this ROM zip...
    • ... (suggested) reboot system and do the initial setup ...
    • ... If you want Magisk and/or gapps: boot back to recovery,
    • Flash GAPPS and/or Magisk.
    • Reboot and enjoy!
    If you have any issues flashing, like persistent GApps or booting issues, try to cleanup the phone with the following procedure:
    • Download a full MIUI rom recovery package from XiaomiFirmwareUpdater
    • ... (make sure you download the full rom package for RECOVERY, it is about 2.4Gb!) ...
    • From recovery, flash the zip file. This will cleanup all the partitions.
    • Now flash again this ROM.
    This problem is related to the fact that TWRP and OrangeFox both don't support dynamic partitions properly yet.

    Tested with Magisk 23.0, newer version should work.
    Suggested GAPPS for LineageOS 17.1: OpenGapps nano or pico.
    Suggested GAPPS for LineageOS 18.1: Mind The Gaps (

    I have some news. I am working on Lineage-18.1 and so far i am having some good progress.
    I managed to boot it, it's still unstable and a lot work is required, but it's steady.

    It is OSS based, so this will be official no doubt this time.
    18
    Official build is again underway and will be ready in a few days.
    Everything has been approved this time we are just waiting for hudson & wiki merge to be approved.

    I think there is good hope that the first official build will be next week.

    Passing SafetyNet and Google Play Certification

    Most of POCO X3 AOSP derived ROMs incorrectly set the device fingerprint. The reasons are various and can be summarized as:
    1. It's being dome like this by the Great Devs
    2. It's too dangerous to change
    3. In this way we can fake being a Pixel phone
    But this is fundamentally incorrect, as each device has it's own fingerprint signature that shall be preserved, and MUST be preserved in order to achieve official status. Moreover, the recent changes in Play Services about SafetyNet (you can read more here: hardware certification) make impossible to pass SafetyNet with an unlocket bootloader. The workaroud requires a rewrite of the keystore and faking to be an older device which does not support hardware certification. This must be implemented from upstream (and i doubt LOS will ever implement it anyway).

    So, what is the problem?

    First, the hardware certification must be faked.
    Second, the correct device fingerprint must be set.

    So, what is the solution?

    First, use a magisk module.
    Second, use another magisk module to fix it. Maybe this second problem might be solved in the future, but the first one cannot be fixed unless LOS upstream add the fix themselves.

    The procedure

    1. Download Magisk (official magisk page), download latest stable.
    2. Boot to recovery and install magisk. (future dirt flashes will preserve magisk)
    3. Reboot system and open Magisk Manager app.
    4. Install the first module (this: from official github page)
    5. Activate Magisk Hide and "hide Magisk Manager app". This is very important!
    6. Install the module "MagiskHide Props Config", you can find it in the modules repository inside Magisk Manager!
    7. Open a terminal... you have three options:
      1. adb shell from PC with phone connected over USB (first, enable USB debugging in developers options)
      2. Enable terminal app from developers options
      3. Install a terminal app from Play Store or FDroid.
    8. Now, in terminal: type "su" (and give root permissions!)
    9. Type "props"
    10. Now you will see a menu, select "1" (Edit device fingerprint)
    11. From the new menu, select "f" (Pick a certified fingerprint)
    12. Select the brand POCO, not XIAOMI!
    13. Now select the POCO X3 NFC (either global or europe, does not matter)
    14. You should see the fingerprint selected on screen, now accept it with "y".
    15. Accept to reboot immediately!
    16. The phone will reboot, after that SafetyNet will pass.
    Known issues and solutions

    99% of issues are related to incorrectly use of Magisk. Magisk HIDE must be enabled and Magisk MAnager must be "hidden" with the menu selection inside Magisk MAnager itself.
