The mode works....since it´s night in germany I couldn´t tell the difference
If you were able to test it more deeply then you´ll be right.
Any previous version I tried crashed right away or pretty quick resulting in a completely useless app.

There should be a PixelExperience rom on Android 9.0 Pie.

Read about it. A Treble ROM. It´s running but has flaws that are dealbreaker for me.
Guess will have to wait this ROM to be much mature.

Since they quoted my post on that without reading previous comments whatsoever, I want to confirm you that this version is not working any more.
At some of the previous versions of MIUI (I was on some of the early versions of MIUI China Stable) portrait mode did work. The cam was stuttering and everything, but when you clicked to take a picture, it did take it and did the blur stuff. However, on later versions of MIUI, that version does not work any more. You can try some of the app versions linked from OP6 forums, some of them do work but have washed out colors.

IMO, we do not need those crazy fixes or whatever which were done on the OP6 (I guess due to bad strange camera api implementations from OnePlus). Perhaps we need only the color fix. But anyhow, when google releases the pixel 3 with SD845, we might get a working google camera port with less bugs than now.

Have you tried the installation without formatting data? I did and it worked for me. A factory reset should be enough to install it.

You said after the installation there's nothing. Is the device booting to twrp or is there anything else happening?

IIRC my device booted twice after the installation but came up with the setup process after that.

Maybe try flashing the zip file and install magisk 16.7 right after that without rebooting to system. Did the trick for me on some other GSI roms.

When i flashed the rom i didn't install magisk, and after reboot the big g stuck on screen.
Now i try to flash the rom and then flash magisk, ty for help.

Magisk doesn´t make anything better...if anything then worse.

REdownload the files and flash again. Just had that same problem som days ago with my LeEco....Update downloaded flashed....and NOTHING.
Corrupt downloads as it turned out once again.
The fileservers the ROMs often are stored at at not the best....but I understand....they are for free

This might be the other problem. I only mentioned it because it fixed a broken installation for me the last time I flashed a rom.

I didn't take a broken download into consideration, bit good input.

While we're waiting for this rom to get the working camera..

Can someone point me to a "working pixel launcher" (most versions crash for me, and the ones that don't, do not have the option to force cirlce icons)? Is there a rootless version like that for this phone?

EDIT: Nevermind, xiaomi and it's retarded unlocking bootloader policy made me get rid of this phone. I'm swapping for Pixel 2 XL tomorrow.

Ty sir ;) Since my pixel 2 xl swap failed, this will be a perfect launcher to make using this phone barable (sorry fans, i mean no disrespect).

Am looking for pixels and project treble supported phones that already have pixel experience roms available. Hope I get something soon :/

There need to be a Android P based Pixel-Like rom that is dedicated to Mi Mix 2S and have CDMA capabilities.

Absolutely. Just contact the OP, maybe you can work together on this? You both have the same goal, maybe if you combine your dev-superpowers you can save the world from MIUI and make the people happy :fingers-crossed:

So camera is not working for this build? what if im install/sideload other camera apps. Normally camera apps called cameringo rarely have issue since it use SW decoder, has anyone tried?
