I needed a lot of help. I have this ROM and Magisk installed. I've tried a thousand ways, but Magisk always gives me "ctsProfile" fail and with this I can't get around the problem of entering the bank apps.
Please some help.
Thanks a lot.
Is the banking app problem solved?
What about the missed call problem?
for bank app and ctsProfile issue i use module "magisk props config" to change phone's fingerprint to "official MI A2 andriod10" and problem solved.

When it booted up, no Google back up configuration restore screen was showed, so it didn't recover wifi passwords, is any way or I lost them all?

In my A2 LOS 18.1 works perfect, the only but is that updater is too slow to apply updates that the phone enter in standby (I guess) so I need to touch the phone every 5 minutes, because if not the update progress does not advance. Does anyone have the same problem?
I update the phone at least 10 times in the last mounths, and always with the same issue!!

There is some way to have a camera, which does slow motion and timelapse. I've installed dozens of gcam and android camera and none works. Can you help me please. Thanks.

Is another way to update? The updater fails, always. Then I need to change the partition so the OS starts, but not updated.

The LineageOS installation guide for the Xiaomi Mi A2 says one should use the following command to unlock the bootloader:
  1. Code:
    fastboot oem unlock

But the XDA Forum says one should use the following two commands:
  1. Code:
    fastboot flashing unlock
  2. Code:
    fastboot flashing unlock_critical
Which one is correct?

And is unlocking "critical" needed for LineageOS?

What is fastboot flashing unlock?


When the fastboot flashing unlock command is sent, the device should prompt users to warn them that they might encounter problems with unofficial images. After the user acknowledges the warning, the device should perform a factory data reset to prevent unauthorized data access.

What is fastboot oem unlock?


Simply put, fastboot oem lock puts your bootloader into a mode that prevents you from overwriting your recovery image, without a subsequent fastboot oem unlock. This serves as a security precaution, primarily where the default recovery and firmware is installed.

Your reply does not answer the question what's the difference between "fastboot oem unlock" and "fastboot flashing unlock" & "fastboot flashing unlock_critical".

It also does not explain whether "fastboot flashing unlock_critical" is needed for the LineageOS ROM.

I have just followed https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/jasmine_sprout/install. No need to unlock critical

fastboot oem unlock ans fastboot flashing unlock do the same job.
fastboot oem unlock is for "old" devices and fastboot flashing unlock for "new".
Mi A2 accept both.

fastboot flashing unlock_critical is needed if you want to change your bootloader (don't need to install LineageOS).

I also followed the LineageWiki (oem unlock) and everything is OK and I don't have "Unlock warning message" on boot.
