I'm using the Plus version and in my willow, the setting "Access Control When Device Is Locked" doesn't make any difference, the controls are always accessible in lock screen, so as the power menu
Anyone else has this issue?

I've noticed that the built in recorder application doesn't work, in that despite having microphone access it fails to detect any audio when recording.

Hi everyone,
I have a question regarding Pixel Experience for the Note 8T: Since this phone's subname is willow (ginkgo is the subname for the Note 8) and Pixel Experience is made for ginkgo, does this ROM really work on the Note 8T? Especially with NFC?
Thanks a lot in advance!😊

How is the battery life like in the newest 12 plus build, does it at least go past 5 hours of SoT on a full charge?

Redmi Note 8 (ginkgo) - I cannot flash the Pixel Experience recovery image, I keep getting a "the system has been destroyed" message.

I unlocked the bootloader and when I run the fastboot command and it says that it's successful but if I try to get into recovery (power button + volume up) I get the message saying "the system has been destroyed". Initially, after restarting it booted to MIUI normally but after trying an earlier Pixel Experience recovery image it just looped on this message.

I followed the installation guide and downloaded the recovery images file from here.

For anyone that may experience the same issue, this is what worked for me:

I went here as this is in the installation guide for xiaomi.eu. Found my device, ginkgo and I chose the TeamWin version. Flashed it exactly as described in the PE installation guide.

Flashing the ROM differed just slightly from the PE's guide.
Instead of factory reset, then format data, it was wipe, then format data.
Then to sideload with ADB you have to go to Advanced, then ADB Sideload and run the command "adb sideload filename.zip" from your PC.

Get vbmeta.img from your region's latest fastboot image then run this

fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

I just received a May update for ginkgo (SP2A.220525.002). Seems like OTA failed immediately in recovery right after I click on Install.

I sideloaded over recovery and it works fine though.
 
How come wifi suddenly stopped working (May update)?

Wifi is constantly disconnected and when I try enabling it, the UI hangs until I get the the option to wait or restart the UI. Wifi does not work after that.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? This really is a showstopper for me...

Ok, so I just noticed that not only wifi, but bluetooth is gone as well.

No BT- and WIFI-MAC addresses.

This has to be a bug in the latest update. Before updating (from April update) everything worked fine.
well then I guess back your stuff up and reflash the rom (the PE rom, not stock rom). probably something went wrong while it's OTA-ing.

if it still doesn't work. I guess you had to factory reset it for real.

    I have flashed this rom on my 8T willow, the process was simple and quick. So far everything seems to work well. I was able to install MAGISK for the few root apps I use like adaway. My banking apps work, as does netflix and government apps that usually complain on rooted devices. Safety net passes even after root. The phone is more responsive, the battery life is much better. NFC works.

    The only small issues seems to be the camera, the one that comes in the rom is ok, it works well, but lacks features. I tried to install several versions of the MIUI camera, all crash, as does the google camera from play store. I tried open camera and picai camera, both work but the banding is terrible which which appears on the photos making them no good.

    I will use this from now as my daily phone, it is fantastic! I hope the camera can be improved or a version of the MIUI camera can be used. You have given life to my old phone, I was so sick of it and ready to buy a new one.

    Thanks so much for your effort!
    Ok, so an update, I am obsessed with getting a decent camera, I tried many from the app store and wasn't happy with them so I ended up flashing ANXCamera. The version I am using is for Android 11 but it works on 12 After some trial and error everything works with the exception of the portrait option. I had issue with the 48mp option to but it is working now. The files I flashed in order from camera.aeonax-dot-com are: MiuiCore-D-MagiskModule-20211105024254.zip, ANXCameraUnity.Light.190R.BountifulDistantHapuka.zip, 48MPFixQ_181.GlossyIntelligentCock.zip. I did try newer versions of the 48MPFix, but non of the others allowed me to use the 48mp camera.

    I hope that helps someone.
