Google is one of them
we almost don't use google services nor apps. only exception is their maps (please don't start origin of android thing here), but having framework on the phone is enough for that app to be used as a backup one in case of FOSS unreliability.

i'm not against closed source, i just use as many open source services services and apps as possible and i rarely need to change that.
such as not able change 40mp or macro lens.
that might be accessible with api2 and for instance opencamera software, but there is no one to answer these and other unknowns…

MIUI have most of complete function like compass, mi fit, lock lost phone. I don't know what do you mean bloatware, and lesser problems than custom roms. If the phone is working fine why bother to flash custom roms?
personally i can't see nothing on MIUI that i need or cannot be replaced with FOSS alternative. Having to maintain two phones under different ROMs gives me nothing but frustration. It's bloated with XIAO solutions that are redundant, complicated or dupe what already is implemented in android. i often have problems finding a simple setting…

anyhow i don't see why this digression is important as everyone uses their phones accordingly to their needs and since LOS is available on that devices all i want is just feedback of what works and what still causes problems.

I only know that if I want to set up those FDroid auto update app, GMS/MicroG, Google Pay, format and reset phone, network based GPS (LineageOS), lost and lock phone on 3rd party ROM it will be more troublesome. Since you are a master of flashing and getting used to this kind of problem, I won't say much.

If you want immediate get relevant replies, you can ask other people on telegram group.

That's it, have a nice day.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

    What's not working :
    • You tell me
    Instructions :
    • Download the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash the latest build and gapps
    • Reboot
    Downloads :
    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    if it helps with anything:

    BUG REPORT - front camera not detected in any app including the stock camera app and Camera2 API Probe, normally causes apps that require camera to stop working.
    Flashing ANXCamera doesn't fix it but based on people's comments, it should work out of the box.

    What is your--
    LineageOS version: 17.1
    LineageOS Download url: https://mirrorbits.lineageos.org/fu...neage-17.1-20210125-nightly-ginkgo-signed.zip (also updated to 20210201 but doesn't matter)
    Gapps version: open_gapps-arm64-10.0-nano-20210127 (also tried installing without gapps, no diff)

    Did you--
    wipe: yes, step by step using the guide
    restore with titanium backup: no
    reboot after having the issue: did many times

    Are you using--
    a task killer: no
    a non-stock kernel: no
    other modifications: magisk but doesn't matter

    Provide any additional information (observations/frequency of problem/last version it worked on/etc) as needed:
    before flashing,
    updated to the latest MIUI Global 12.0.3 Stable (QCOMIXM)
    kernel version 4.24.227-perf+
    Model: M1908C3JG, the 4GB 128GB model

    Stock camera: doesn't show the camera switch button, logcat: https://file.io/NGERieHfjn63
    Google camera (installed from Play Store): stops/crashes on switching, logcat: https://file.io/6yFQ7KyVRmpX
    OpenCamera: no front camera
    Most apps: crash

    Bump!
    I have the same issue. Phone mfg batch 2020.11
    On the original MIUI 12.0.1.0 (QCOEUXM) ROM, the kernel (QKQ1.200114.002) reports the front camera linux module as being an OmniVIsion OV13B10 (ov13b10_ginkgo) in Device Info HW App. Also "Supported" is listed as 20 (maybe the number of bundled camera kernel driver modules).

    On LOS17.1 the entry is missing, and "Supported" is 17

    Maybe the missing kernel driver can be included in the LOS17.1 kenel tree.

    I'm liking this ROM very much. Now using for about 2 months since it came out, and so far it is fine.

    No real issues whatsoever, and the battery is good. Which is what I want. So I will be sticking with it for the foreseeable future. Android 11 is not ready for primetime, and I have no wish to waste my time on it.

    All this nonsense about GPS and fast charging not working is very annoying NOISE. I have no desire to read this rubbish. And that is what it is - rubbish from the clueless, feckless, unwashed and inept.

    You have China version? My phone PCOCNXM - China version and fastcharge doesn't work!
    I have the China version too. Fast charge works only in recovery (orangefox). I've had this problem for months now.
