Hello, I've been looking forward to install this rom, but no matter what I do, it will always bootloop once and then get stuck in recovery. I come from the xiaomi.eu rom, but i did follow all the steps. Since i wasnt sure, I even installed the xiaomi stock via fastboot to make sure, but again, it didnt work... what am I doing wrong?

Make sure to format data after flashing rom but before first boot

i had the same problem using NikGapp Basic, i used the "core" version and it booted. Alternatively you can do the first boot without GAPP, and then put them after.

Hey thank you, it was the issue indeed, but it was pretty late and I went to sleep before trying. Now everything is working alright. I'd also like to ask: I've seen there's no 30W charging support, but I'm charging the phone with a power delivery charger and it has charged insanely fast, is there a way to see how much the phone is pulling from the type c without using external devices?

Moreover, this rom is working super well, the fingerprint sensor is a little funky, but I'm truly enjoying it!

I dont use the fast charge, but i think you can see charge informations in lockscreen.
You can go in: Setting-> Sakura Configs-> Lockscree - > Lockscreen charging info

Hi, this rom is working fantasically. I do have one question. How can we change the FOD icon and/or animations? I've tried replacing the webp file for an icon in /system/system_ext/app/FodAnimations/FodAnimations.apk/res/drawable and rebooted, but saw no change. Thank you for any help :)
 
Thanks for a great rom!
Fluid and great battery life. Gpay, bank apps etc works without issues.
With PXv8.1_GCam-v1.2 I would say that picture quality is on pair or better than stock rom.

But I'm also experience some bugs..
Most critical one is the mic quality when you speak via speaker phone. Seems to work better some times but often not useable at all. Then I do not get Android Auto to work and the automatic screen color temp. adjustment at night does not seem to work either.

@Sanya Pilot , Are you using alibei's lineageos version as a base for your rom and will you then merge all his recent updates in your next update by any chance? Your Sakura version give added value over vanilla LineageOS, especially the added face unlock.
Thanks again for your and alibei's great work!

Yes, i'm using @alibei device tree and vendor tree. So all improvements he does will appear in mine builds monthly

Based on: LOS 18.1 (OSS)
ROM version: 5.R
GApps: Not included | OpenGApps |
BitGApps |
NikGApps
Build Date: 15.05.21
Bugs: No major bugs, you tell me

Because this is "Vanilla" version (without GApps), if you had been using it with installed GApps and update by OTA, it will cause bootloop! To prevent it, install GApps package after installing OTA.
Clean install
  1. If installing OSS based ROMs for the first time, you'll need to install TWRP with /cust -> /product patch
    After installing TWRP, check if your firmware version >= 21.4.1 (if flashing from MIUI >= 21.4.1), else flash latest from here
  2. Reboot to recovery, format Data, wipe Dalvik/ART Cache, Cache, System, Product, Vendor
  3. Reboot to recovery again
  4. Flash ROM and GApps if needed
  5. Reboot and enjoy!
Updating (manual)
  1. Reboot to recovery, wipe Cache, Dalvik/ART cache
  2. Flash ROM
  3. The phone will be bootlooped, reboot it to recovery and install GApps package
  4. Reboot and enjoy!
Updating (OTA)
  1. Go to Settings -> Sakura Configs -> Sakura Updates
  2. Scan for updates
  3. Choose what you want and install it
  4. The phone will be bootlooped, reboot it to recovery and install GApps package
  5. Reboot and enjoy!

Found what causes bootloop after OTA.

Thanks for the info! I saw the message about GApps too late, after I was already in the bootloop.
For anyone also experiencing this: it seems that simply rebooting to recovery and flashing GApps worked for me, however I didn't fully test everything yet though.

Found some answers. /system/system_ext/priv-app/SystemUI/SystemUI.apk/drawable holds the actual FOD icons, although the change isn't seen in Settings, no biggie. /system/priv-app/OmniStyle/OmniStyle.apk/drawable has the Quick Settings header, which can also be modified.
