Hi everyone, I have noticed that the latest version gives quite a bit of jerks in immersive mode, If I deactivate it, it's great

    Wont work on Lineage19 until lineage19 is officially released. But at that time, expect it soon.
    Hello guys!!! A great new year for everyone!

    Let's talk about 18.1

    I'm using as a daily driver on my KARNA for a week, apart of the suffering to make GAPPS work it was pretty easy to flash, following the OP steps.

    -Clean and FAST
    -Customization is on a acceptable level
    -Battery life is as good or better than MIUI
    -No crashes or freezes
    -everything (that I use) is working

    -No fast charge--- At least not fast as MIUI
    -Cameras (even Google from the OP) broken--- Works but with some limitations I'll try some POCO extracts out there.

    And that's it! I'll use as a daily for a looong time.

    Thanks @gardiol for your effort.

    Fast charge just works. It says "slow" using stock charger due to some proproetary xiaomi, but its still fast. Wether irs as fast as miui or not i think its mostly perception.

    I use burial gcam from op and works pretty well. All works at least. Maybe miui camera has more "ai" functions, but thats software gimnicks.

    One note: DO NOT use any ANX camera ports or versions, most will not work and the few ones that do work will break something else (like video recording). If you do even install any miui port camera once, expect your system partition to be borked and i will not accept any bug segnalation unless you clean flash.

    I know that safetynet is a pain, say thankyou to google.... Los policy is not to mess with it.
    Yes. He gave his phone to his wife and she wants stock ROM ...

    Dont spread false rumors. We both have poco x3 nfc, so... Development goes on, weekly official builds. Hard to improve such al already good rom. But slowly new stuff gets pushed. Check official changelog. I post test builds sometimes on telegram.
    No reason except nobody noticed. If you want to send me a patch will gladly add.
    I tried to submit the patch with repo through Gerrit with no success, here is a link to the patch (tested on a custom build with QPST): https://gist.github.com/olivierlemoal/6f64b7d946006152c7b53cdb982f3610
    USB pid / vid values are from original vendor image.

    Test build uploading on gdrive and gardiol's website (See first post) under "test" folder. Date is 29th December 2021. Please test and report (also, test HBM and a few changes too, described in the changelog in there) because i will not merge all these changes to official until reported tested by at least a few users.

    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.

    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.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    What's working:
    • WiFi
    • VoLTE
    • VoWIFI
    • FM Radio
    • RIL (telephone, SIM, 2G/3G/4G/LTE/+/blah...)
    • Tethering
    • Bluetooth + AAC
    • Tethering + bluetooth working
    • Safety net passed
    • SELinux Enforcing in Trust
    • DT2W
    • WiFi Display fully working
    • Infrared (IR)
    • NFC (Surya only)

    Known issues:
    • Honestly at this time, nothing?

    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.


    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:
    • 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.
    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.
