yesterday the AOSP version of PE stopped to be official -do not know why-

anyway, I installed this CAF version + Evira Kernel 3.3 and performance and battery life are quite awesome. I still cannot tell about camera and/or proximity sensor or another bugs, but general impressions are quite good

For me at the moment the best daily driver rom. Proximity sensor ok and good battery life. GCam ok but little trouble with Wi-Fi speed (with no Evira kernel installed). I face a little lag on scroll in apps but all works good!

Flashing and source code

Hi,
I have problem with flashing this as I'm getting
"ERROR: This package requires firmware from MIUI 10.3.5.0 or newer. Please upgrade firmware and retry!"
but I am on EEA channel that has only MIUI 10.3.4.0. Any idea on how to solve it without bricking my device?

And per GPL, could you please publish all the source code and build instructions? I tried getting manifest from your source code slash manifest (I cannot link it), get all the sources, then envsetup and "lunch aosp_lavender-user", but it cannot find the proper manifest.
Code:
build/make/core/product_config.mk:234: error: Can not locate config makefile for product "aosp_lavender".
09:58:42 dumpvars failed with: exit status 1
Device lavender not found. Attempting to retrieve device repository from PixelExperience-Devices Github (*censored*/PixelExperience-Devices).
Repository for lavender not found in the PixelExperience-Devices Github repository list.
If this is in error, you may need to manually add it to your .repo/local_manifests/pixel.xml
build/make/core/product_config.mk:234: error: Can not locate config makefile for product "aosp_lavender".
09:58:43 dumpvars failed with: exit status 1
build/make/core/product_config.mk:234: error: Can not locate config makefile for product "aosp_lavender".
09:58:43 dumpvars failed with: exit status 1

** Don't have a product spec for: 'aosp_lavender'
** Do you have the right repo manifest?

Not sure why they have put the older version number first. https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/#stable

You need to make sure you use the second option which is 10.3.6.

Not really sure if it makes any difference but the top one is EU global and the second one is global world
Yes, I couldn't flash "Global". MIUI complained about incorrect region. Only EEA (PFGEUXM) worked for me.

Asking because of rollback protection, otherwise I would just try whatever it costs.

Great ROM! Just one issue for me: lockscreen doesn't show weather (nor ambient display). Any idea?

I would like to add some findings regarding the proximity sensor, which is very essential for me to work. Especially when you call the display should go black, so you don't push buttons by mistake.

When upgrading to the latest version of this ROM, it did not work intitially.

However I got it to work by flashing the latest firmware, the one mentioned few posts above and by flashing Evira 3.3 kernel. Not sure if it would work with the stock kernel, when flashing the firmware I had already changed the kernel.

However updating to Evira 3.4 & Evira 3.5 again the proximity senser does not work, so I went back today to 3.3 and it works now again.

Perhaps that helps one or the other.

Edit: Wasn't working once more this morning, had to shutdown complete and restart, then it was working again. Next time I'll try to get some logs when not working once more.

Hi, here are some bugs I find, with last version of the ROM and Evira 3.3

No Audio at all when recording video
No audio at all (wether hearing nor talking) when using car´s bluetooth
no talking when using BT headset (i can hear the other, but he doesnt hear me)
Proximity sensor doesnt work (not that bad, as you can turn the screen off with the power button)

Switched to this ROM from the previous "Official" version and with Elvira Kernel I think it is actually much better. No more issues with the proximity sensor as I had before.

In fact, the only thing that keeps annoying me is the laggy video experience on Whatsapp video call. I rely very much on that feature since I live abroad.

Just to know, I know that i dont have ask about any updates etc, but this is not the question. Is the maintenance of the PE CAF terminated or am I wrong? @Ghoul159

Correcting my last post: Video recorded with Gcam has no audio. This is a dealbreaker.
