Did you just flash the recommended vendor or just vbmeta pls i need help

Yeah, some of the steps here were a little vague; little rusty at it myself


-Got TWRP installed, had to use twrp-3.3.1-46-cepheus-mauronofrio otherwise the contents were encrypted
-Boot into TWRP (power button + volume up)
-Flash fw+vendor_cepheus_xiaomi.eu_multi_9.8.1
-Full wipe
-Reboot into TWRP
-Flash PixelExperience_Plus_cepheus-9.0-20190927-1303-UNOFFICIAL
-I flashed Magisk-v20.0(20000) to root as well
-Reboot system and pixel logo shows up and do the startup etc..

Little worried I was gonna brick my new phone but worked in the end =p

Double tap to wake doesn't work when the always on display is turned off. The raise to wake doesn't work consistently. After installing pe my USBC adapter for headphone jack and charging at the same time won't charge. Also the reverse portrait mode is really annoying, I didn't find a way to disable only the reverse portrait mode.

The weird thing is sometimes the battery percentage will still go up but the phone won't recognize that it's charging. Only when using the usbc adapter. This adapter worked fine with miui.

This is a total "clean flash". Clean flash is a real clean installation wiping everything of system and user, included the internal storage (sd card). Obviously when you do a clean flash, do a backup of your data (photos, videos, music...) because you will lost everything.

Can't call some numbers!!!

I am from Germany and I can't call some numbers of companies, I try to call them but my phone keeps hanging the call up at the beginning, it doesn't even ring and its only on some numbers. Please fix.
The numbers that weren't working are the number of the "Deutsche Bank" and "Unitymedia" and "Ernst & Young".
Those are the companies names of the numbers I can not call.
Please help or fix the ROM.

But great work on the rest, great ROM.

My phone is the Xiaomi Mi 9 on Android 9

Battery life on PE

Anyone having trouble with battery life on this rom? Not getting much screen on time or standby for that matter. Any fixes for this? Rom is great apart from the battery life issue

    He is also busy with a different ROM, PanAndroid ROM. So he is definitely a busy guy. But with leaving it unfinished doesn't make it a proper developer ;)
    He can better stick with one ROM even the PE rom is not finished, and improve that one and if it is really working, he can slowly do different ROMS, adding security patches etc.

    For me it comes more like he needs to be seen. But OK, i am stick again with the .eu ROM for now. Is the most stable / battery less drain ROM i have now.
    MIUI can be terrible but still. Knowing it will fix issues by the week ;) mostly.
    I never abandoned PE, I am waiting for August patch to be merged. Whats the use of sending weekly builds if nothing major has been fixed or added. Till now I have fixed the following issues:
    - NFC is back
    - Safetynet is fixed
    - Phone randomly dying is fixed.
    The only "issue" left now is enforcing the kernel for GPay stuff. Now you tell how is that abandoning the rom? Also, I have a personal life. I m a full time student and need to study too:D. So, please keep patience. If there hasn't been update for 3 weeks doesn't mean its dead. :eek: Have some patience. Fixing issue isn't easy, takes time and lot of effort. I do this in my free time, I don't get paid to do it.
    Update will be out once August patch is merged in source.
