For those who would like to try AtomicOS Oreo, here is a link to my latest build.
Everything is functioning properly as far as I know, except for the connection to Android Auto. For some reason, this is the only rom I've built that Android Auto doesn't even see the phone connected.
Anyway, it's a great rom :)

I am not sure if this is related to the issue you have with Android Auto, but I am not getting media playback through Google Play Music or Phonograph for either phone speaker or wired headphones (used with included Xiaomi 3.5mm to USB-C adapter). Bluetooth works fine, however. I also have media audio in YouTube, Facebook, and other apps in the phone speaker and headphones. It just seems to be music apps.

What I've done:

-Full wipe and installed your build from March 10th with the 4.4.78 kernel. (Sun, March 11th) Used OpenGapps 8.1 X64 nano Gapps. Had audio in Play Music on boot. Lost audio after connecting to Bluetooth earbuds. (TouchTwo Wireless Earbuds)

-Wiped app data. Still gone.
-Uninstalled and reinstalled Google Play Music. Still no sound in GPM.
-Cache wipe. No help.
-Full System/Data/Cache wipe and reflashed the same build and Gapps package. This time did not have media audio in GPM on boot like the initial installation.

Hopefully this leads you closer with your Android Auto issue unless it is unrelated. In the meantime, I will keep plugging away at potential solutions until I go back to your Nougat builds of XenonHD.

Thanks for the feedback on that...I hadn't tried music over headphones (there's always something I forget) so I'll so that tonight since I made a fresh build with a few changes. I currently get music through phone speaker with phonograph and Google play music, so maybe the new build fixed something.
If headphones don't work when I check it this evening I'll dig deeper, but in any event, I'll put the new build up for grabs

Hi everyone, I truly apologize for being silent for so long. I've been working on some 8.1 roms, focusing mostly on AtomicOS. That rom has some pretty nice options compared to LineageOS, XenonHD (7.1), and so on. It's almost ready, but I'm having a problem getting Android Auto to work.
For me, that is really important, so that's what's holding me back from releasing the rom. Otherwise, everything else seems to work. I've tried to build XenonHD Oreo, but that hasn't worked well yet. I'll give it another go to see if they've got things more developed.
Anyway, just wanted to offer an update. :)

Join this telegram group. These devs are doing some great work. May be it will help you in developing you rom. :)

I do not know why. . I installed this rom. When playing with a music player, there is no sound from the speakers and the hands rotate. However, there are sounds in the mobile phone's alert tone, such as ringtones and alarms. However, this issue is normal in China's official MIUI rom. . . And, I installed the global version of rom first, then installed this rom. . . . Strangely enough, the music player still had sounds when I first installed this rom. . . I really like this rom. . . Chinese version of MIUI rom ads too much, and there will be a variety of excessive permissions. .
The above is Google Translate. My English is not good. . Sorry. .:crying:

Yes, this ROM package file name is
"XenonHD-180105-Unofficial-chiron.zip".

The global version of the fastboot file name is
"chiron_global_images_V9.5.4.0.ODEMIFA_20180315.0000.00_8.0_global_d8f2f1f5fb.tgz".

Is that right??:confused:

    XenonHD ROM for Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
    A Team Horizon ROM
    Based on AOSP r36 7.1.2

    This ROM has all the features XenonHD has to offer.
    All hardware functions including:
    NFC
    Bluetooth Audio
    Fingerprint Scanner
    Doze & Wake-up Gestures (dtw works after the first reboot)
    And...many more things.

    Magisk is no longer built in, so you'll need to flash it when first installing, and after every dirty flash.

    VoLTE doesn't work (at least on T-Mobile). I believe most of the pieces are in place, but there may be something in the firmware that's preventing it? If I could figure out how to tap into the stock cust files, I might be able to figure out how to get it working.

    Proximity Sensor is working:

    Notification Light:
    I have slowed down the notification light so it isn't all amped up. To make it completely usable, go to:
    Fixed default notification blinks for built-in apps so they are slowed down without needing to go to settings.
    For use-installed apps, add them to custom notification list in settings > notifications > gear icon > notification light > + in upper right corner > select app. Apps added to that list will have slow notification blinks.
    I simply cannot find a way to make user-installed app notifications behave the same as built-in apps. Grrr!!


    I have also made the light sensor wait longer before dimming the screen. This helps with left-handed activities blocking the light sensor and almost immediately dimming the screen.
    Reduced time to go back from dim to bright. Screen will dim after 5 seconds, returns to bright after 2 seconds.

    I've remove configpanel & pocketmode...they did little to nothing, and may have caused more battery drain than I care for.

    Required prior to installing:
    Unlock Bootloader
    Install custom recovery: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=962021903579490303
    HUGE thanks to IceMan for bringing this to Mix 2!
    A quirk with this TWRP: This one looks for backups in TWRP/BACKUPS/MIX_2 folder. Normally, the MIX_2 folder is named after serial number of your device.
    So, you existing backups won't be found until you rename the folder in BACKUPS to MIX_2.

    Installation Instructions:
    Dirty flash is now available with the above TWRP and 10-26-2017 rom.

    Download the most recent build: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673791459329071426

    Download Gapps (I use Open Gapps Mini) --> http://opengapps.org/

    All versions from 10-24-2017 are now encryptable.

    From TWRP Recovery:
    IF COMING FROM MIUI-BASED ROM: FULL WIPE AND FORMAT DATA!!
    If you encounter ERROR 7, during XenonHD install, install Global MIUI ROM, then do full wipe and data format again, then install XenonHD rom.


    If coming from AOSP-based ROM:
    - Full wipe (Cache, Davlik/ART Cache, System & Data)
    - Flash ROM zip
    - Flash Gapps zip

    Huge thanks to Mokee for bringing this device up and making a great place to start.
    Also a very HUGE thanks to @Arasthel for his work on proximity sensor and figuring out the bluetooth reboot stuff and other hints, suggestions and incalculable work.

    I'd also like to thank all of you folks here for trying this ROM and providing constructive feedback.
    In addition, I appreciate your patience when issues come up that need to be fixed. I am not a developer, and I have a full time job and a wife that takes precedence most of the time :)

    I need to update the op, but I'll be out of town for the next few days, so no time to do that at the moment.
    Working proximity & Bluetooth audio, maybe some Bluetooth sharing issues, but those might be resolved once I get back into town.
    HUGE thanks to @Arasthel for his work on proximity sensor, please thank him!

    What you and other developers have managed to do without kernel source is pretty impressive and there are many who appreciate all the effort (myself Included). What was released a few weeks ago, was that not full kernel source?

    The mi6 has a decent enough selection of near perfect ROMs since source has been released so I'm hoping once they are released for this it will be similar. The one thing I'm hoping will improve when this happens is battery life, I get around 2 hours more when in time using miui than stock atm. Is a big difference.

    Thank you for the kind compliments. The kernel source released was specifically for sagit (mi 6?) But included some new commits for Chiron. Unfortunately not 100%, but getting there.
    On the good news front, I finally got my builds with working proximity sensor. I have an AOKP build working now & and an currently building XenonHD and will test that later this afternoon.
    Both ROMs should be posted later this afternoon, then I can start looking at volte & WiFi calling.

    Thanks again ?

    It's really ennoying seeing all those comments about getting rid of the MIX 2 because of roms bugs, dev support, etc.
    Honestly this is dev threads and feelings or moods have nothing to do here.
    Even if it's understandable, it's just about personal appreciation and really doesn't motivate devs to go further in their work. Neither for potential buyers to increase our community.

    In my opinion, it's a device that got pretty stable roms really quick. For my personal use, bugs reported are not an issue and future sources will allow to fix them all. It's not like being stuck with a HUAWEI phone and forced to use EMUI or variants.

    I encourage devs here to continue their hard work because they have to know that even if their not plenty of a "YEAH" posts everyday, I'm sure many followers here are patiently and gratefully waiting for updates.

    Keep it up guys !

    I can partial agree with you ..mix 2 is a great phone but development sucks.....
    Look at OP5T ..
    Just released and they are 4 custom kernels & first Oreo ROMs already dropped...!!....
    I would really love to buy this phone but when I'm visiting this forum getting disappointed....

    The biggest issues we have to get past is volte/WiFi calling, and for my builds also proximity sensor. @Arasthel has been able to build xenonhd & RR with working proximity sensor, so things are getting better for this phone. Xiaomi has not released the official kernel source yet, so that may be part of the problem.
    I've built an AOKP rom as well, but same non-functioning items as my xenonhd. Both are very stable builds, but without working proximity sensor, I don't really want to release any new roms or updates.
    I wish things would progress faster, but at the moment it's pretty frustrating for me. Hopefully something positive will happen soon.
    I do thank all of you for your encouragement, and I also understand your disappointment. :good:
