yeah. i went haha but i really learned a lot.man you went on a very long journey
yeah our phones dont need official kernel and drivers|firmwares so i dont know which youve downloaded, but theyre never necessary for most roms to work
as for magisk, which version? your recovs as well?
for the most part, most users have very good experience on 415, a recent twrp, and magisk 24
magisk 25 had a lot of reweites and may not run fine for the most part
(i had issues on 25, fixed on .1, havent tried .2)
im currently on another devs unofi 416 and twrp 362 and havent faced any issues
im actually using magisk 25.2 with these modules:
- G-Visual MOD
- MagiskHide Props
- Systemless Hosts
- Universal SafetyNet Fix
25.2 is actually more stable than 25.0 (the app kept crashing a lot) and fixed a bunch of bugs
as for the recovery, i used OFRP last stable for redmi 8 when i had those problems and it worked great, but i dont think the recovery was the problem. now im using twrp 3.5.2_9 so maybe i should update the recovery
you said that olives dont need kernel or firmwares, is that because the treble support or am i crazy?
anyway everytime i flash a new rom, i flash the lastest firmware from MiFirm.
EDIT: When i fall in the first bootloop, i had about 3 days trying to flash a olivelite rom when i was olive.
