Few more things/bugs i noticed:

1. Live display / Automatic: when activated on a partial dark room (at least in a partial dark room) it will be very undecided how to keep the brightness on the phone, so it keeps going up and down creating an annoying "pulsating" effect on the screen. Solved this by deactivating

2. FOD: when activated, sometimes will randomly appear behind an app that is scrolling so when you scrolling and if you hit the finger display zone it will try to activate, if you lock the device and unlock, it will go back to normal.

3. Colors / Adaptive: When activated on adaptive in a partial dark room it will create a pulsating effect on certain color, (ex. status bar - the grey will color will be more or less vivid every 1-2 seconds), i've solved by setting this to natural.

In general i see the adaptive brightness has some issue, the way it increases in steps, in the same ambient it will change very often (even in a matter of seconds) up and down being a little annoying, feels like it needs some little polish here.

4. Pixel launcher eats alot of battery i see it seconds in the list of consumption per 24 hours 912 mah. Not sure what is the culprit here.

5. Extra DIM, while it looks nice also has some issues with this screen has some color shifting i see, also deactivated it now

As for the GCAM mentioned above MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV2a_snap, i've installed and its good, but the 2x still doesn't work, it shows blured.
The issue of adaptive brightness has been explained extensively in the known issue section of the current release's changelog.

Regarding the screen panel color shift in dark content / low brightness, it is caused by the 90Hz refresh rate timing in panel's dts. Basically when shifting from 60hz/120hz to 90hz, there is a very noticeable difference in color temperature, which is probably why MIUI does not offer 90Hz as a step. However, they still left that step in the screen panel dts. I've removed it completely, and this issue should be fixed in the next update.

1. Not likely to be added to PE.
2. VPN QS tile is coming in June's release
Is there a way to prevent certain apps from being cleared from memory (similar to MIUI memory locking) ?
No.

Paolo, turn off adaptive connectivity and maybe run through adb the command to optimize android. Do you have AOD turned on ? that sucked my phone 13% in 8-9 hours yesterday also, i disabled it and using double tap wake & close + what i mentioned above and now i have screen off 3% in 10 hours that is 0.3% /h from 1.3% and 98,2% deep sleep. (all this with 4G+wifi left on 24/7)

adb shell cmd package bg-dexopt-job - run this through adb.
If what i mentioned doesn't fix it install BatteryGuru and give it all the permissions through adb to have a clear view what kills your battery. Also, i disabled in developer options that option "keep mobile data always activate" and actiovated "suspended execution for cached apps"

What i find wierd is how the automatic light sensor is working now, in partial dark rooms its very undecided and too bright or too low very often, hope this gets some improvement in the next update, otherwise this ROM is very very good.

Yes, i disabled everything that i'm not using and seemed like bloatware through xiaomi adb tools including digital wellbeing, also turned of services like printing, bt scanning, nearby share etc, everything that would run behind.

Do I need to be on global firmware first ?
I'm on xiaomi.eu beta firmware and I always get error 7 during adb sideload.

    Maybe I will switch from Mi10 to Mi11 because of this official support but it would he a downgrade :(

    How good.bad is the battery life compare to stock MIUI?

    battery life is better than MIUI. maybe 10% to 15% better imo.

    This support this game Turbo ?
    What is that? The MIUI feature that limits the performance and puts more restriction on thermal when you launch a game? It's weird to call that "Turbo".

    Dear jjpprrr, thank you for the best Mi11 experience !
    After reading that there are many fixes already available und the security fixes for june are also released I want to ask kindly when you plan to release the next version of your wonderful ROM. (no pressure, it´s already my all time favorite for the Mi11!)
    I understand that you didn't mean to offend, but I genuinely have no idea how to answer questions like this. I feel like asking for an ETA is quite pointless: you would only get an estimate; whether the release will come as I promised or not is still undetermined.
    • If I find some regressions and need to take time to fix them, all you get is more disappointment.
    • Say everything is ready, and I deliberately hold on the update to mess with you guys. Why would I do it? What do I gain from it? Of course I release as soon as it's ready, so no need to ask about it. I don't freaking know when it will be ready. I only know after I finish testing everything.
    On the other hand, official PE's release window is not always open. We work on the ROM source at our own pace. Sometimes the CI is locked so we can start merging new patches or bringing in fixes. For example, right now due to some build server issue, all releases are halted. We cannot release anything even if the device is ready.

    Therefore, please relax and enjoy the current build. This would be the last time I answer questions regarding ETA.

    Please follow the wiki for detailed install instructions. I will not provide support if you fail to follow the required steps.

    If you are on my previous PE 12 / 12 Plus builds, you can directly OTA or dirty flash in recovery. A concise version of clean flash guide for the experienced users:
    - Download the vendor_boot.img (https://gitlab.pixelexperience.org/...venus/-/raw/twelve/android-12/vendor_boot.img)
    - Download PE recovery from the official PE website
    - Boot your phone into bootloader mode. You can either
    * hold power + volume down button
    * or `adb reboot bootloader`
    - Connect your phone to a computer
    - Run `fastboot flash vendor_boot vendor_boot.img` in your cmd/powershell/terminal
    - Run `fastboot flash boot pe_recovery_file_name.img` in your cmd/powershell/terminal
    - Hold power + volume up to boot into recovery, or `fastboot reboot recovery`
    - In PE recovery, select `Factory reset" --> "Format data/factory reset`
    - Go back to main menu and select "Apply update" --> "Apply from ADB"
    - Run `adb sideload pe_rom_file_name.zip` in your cmd/powershell/terminal and wait until it finishes
