I am trying to install the update, but when it reboots to TWRP nothing happens. I cannot do manual install due to the fact that /data is not mounted.
How can I update, without doing a fresh install?
Nevermind, just found that there is a "new" version of TWRP from 5th July that supports encryption. Finally!

Then dirty flash the rom

I get that when I want to install in this case is the Xiaomi camera, install the Google camera and what happens to me is that it closes automatically, I downloaded the apk from apkmirror, I do not know what I can do to fix that error.

Look for the .zip of the Xiaomi camera (micam) in the telegram channel of pixel experience. Once you download it, install it from the recovery without doing any wipe.

will the next releases be again normal OTA images without wiping and so on, please? it takes quite some time until a phone is set up with everything like it was before even if you have backups.

at least the micam from the telegram channel works great - even portraitmode - thanks for the tip @alvaes

recovery is okay, try to boot, it'll be just fine
my system got also destroyed when I was using twrp, then I was able to boot into recovery pressing the power+ volume up button
and from twrp flashed pbrp,
use prbp to flash the rom, it's better

I flashed the ROM using the pixel experience recovery. My phone is unable to detect SIM as well as any WiFi network. I did a clean flash. Am I missing something out?

Sorry but I think I'm out of the loop, hopefully someone can help clarify for me: I clean flashed the latest PE+ with the latest TWRP recovery (the one that is finally able to decrypt). Is there a reason I should flash the PE recovery included in PE+'s download page? Am I OK to use the latest TWRP instead? Thanks in advance to whomever can shed some light on this.

As I said a bit above your post, the latest TWRP works fine, I would prefer to stick with TWRP.
On the other side I was going to wipe cache through recovery, but I have found that latest PE installed PixelExperience recovery and I can't overwrite it with TWRP. Any suggestion?

    Is there any easy way/method to install Magisk on this ROM? Followed the official method but I am unable to find the recovery.img file in the ROM (my device doesn't have Ramdisk).

    Thank you all who gave their valuable input in my quest to troubleshoot my issues. After immense trial and error with tons of google searches, I was finally able to frankenstien enough knowledge to create one final solution. As a sign of my respect for this community, I'll pen my experience down in hopes it saves the trouble for someone else down the line.

    Foremost, the installation guide linked was easy to understand and the ROM itself is light and extremely responsive. Apart from some minor hiccups here and there, this is a good Pixel Experience. Thank you iamsaalim!

    That being said, if you're an unfortunate person like me who lives in India and a victim of Xiomi's "yea I'll think about you last" attitude, there are a few things that the guide does not cover at the time of writing this post. Not the maintainers fault tbh, it's just bad luck. Here are the steps that I followed:

    • Grabbed both the ROM and Recovery from the link in the original post.
    • Followed the guide to the letter up until the point where I flashed the recovery in via adb.
    • Encountered recovery issue where the phone would just freeze trying to go into recovery via Vol+ and Power buttom. Tried "fastboot erase userdata" command. Freezing issue gone but instead of TWRP, MI Recovery showed up. After much trial and error and thanks to yn4v4s's input(you rock dude), I finally realized I'm on Q firmware which is Android 10 whereas the TWRP in the original post is meant for R firmware which is Android 11. Decided to grab the yn4v4s's recommended Global version.
    • Went to TWRP website and grabbed December 2020 recovery and flashed that via adb. Success as TWRP flares to life.
    • Continued on with the guide all excited thinking the worse is behind me as all I need is to install ROM, right? WRONG.
    • Immediately new problem: Factory Reset/Formatting failure/Wiping Failed. reason? Operation not Permitted
    • Selected Mount and spotted a weird anomaly. Cycling through the storage, noticed Internal storage was marked as (0) capacity. Immediately stuck that as odd. Google search intensified.
    • Went to Wipe> Selecting /data > Advance Wipe > Change file system, I saw that the file system was FTFS by default. Changed it to ext4 and formatted it. Now ftfs is supposed to be better but I noticed all other drive partitions were in ext4 format, so for the sake of simplicity I stuck with ext4 instead of reverting to ftfs.
    • Tried Factory resetting again. This time new error while formatting: Invalid Argument. Proceeded to chuck neighbor's cat out of the window and fight imaginary sharks to vent frustration.
    • Calmed down and went back a few steps. Realized, forgot to clear cache. Went back into Advance wipe and cleared Davlik /ART Cache, Cache, Data, System and Vendor.
    • Proceeded to format once again typing "yes" while praying. Finally, success!!
    • Time to flash and upgrade to Android 11 firmware first before the ROM. Placed the global firmware into the SD card via USB cable. Saw folks flashing ROMs from TWRP as well so placed PE ROM too.
    • Selected Install on TWRP and navigated to the firmware file. Executed the firmware and noticed it installing within seconds. A bit worrying sign but since no errors were thrown I continued on.
    • Navigated to the directory again, selected PE ROM image this time and installed it as well. Installation went without any incidents and returned with a success message. Okay...
    • Moment of Truth. Reboot! 1 minute passes, Google Icon spins up. YES! 2 minute passes, Google bar starts running. Encouraging! 3 minute passes, bar continues running. Erm. 4 minute passes, bar still. Uh oh.
    • Yeap, no cigar yet. I'm now stuck in a boot loop. To make matter worse, TWRP recovery gets overwritten by PE Recovery. Sigh.
    • Decide to grab the latest TWRP from their website and flash that instead since there is no point in using old Android 10 TWRP.
    • Aaand I'm frozen again on REDMI screen. WTF?! I flashed Android 11 global firmware so I'm pretty sure I'm on the new one. Flashed old TWRP again and sure enough I'm into the recovery. Confused as hell now. For the heck of it, I erased Cache again.
    • Noticed an odd new console error in red. Unable to decrypt FBE device
    • More google searches later, I come across discussion where community came to the conclusion that "console output Unable to decrypt FBE device was nothing but to tell us that incompatible operating system flashed"
    • OS can't be an issue, it's made for my Redmi Note 8 and I'm plenty sure I'm on ginkgo.
    • Going through this thread I noticed how folks swore by Chinese firmware. Decided to deviate and flash that firmware instead. Wiped everything again including the OS.
    • Went back to following the guide and decided to sideload selecting Advanced on TWRP and select "Side Load" option. Copied the ROM in my ADB directory on the PC and used the "sideload 'ROM NAME'.zip" command.
    • Waited patiently for the message: If the process succeeds the output will stop at 47% and report adb: failed to read command: Success/No error.
    • Process ends but no such message. Instead I get: Total xfer: 1.00x
    • Quick google search showed that this is an error message. Too tired to get angry or brainy at this point so I simply reboot for the heck of it.
    • 1 minute into boot and suddenly I see white light. COULD IT BE...?
    • Sure enough, Google bursts out of boot into first time setup. YAY?!!
    Apologies, if this became a weird wall of text but this is a sum total of my experience in the last couple of weeks. I've no idea if I have done this right or I just got lucky eventually but it somehow worked for me. From installing adb, to fighting with drivers to recognize my phone, to waiting 7 days for bootloader to open, to finally all that I listed above, it was truly a nightmarish experience. But in the end, it was worth it. The default camera was a bit of a letdown but thankfully GCam apk uploaded in this thread by another member was easy enough to install and runs without issues. Unable to move the clock on the wallpaper became a bit of an irritant but nothing Nova Launcher couldn't fix.

    All in all, apart from the installation pangs, I'm loving it. Thank you all for your advice. Truly would have been lost without your inputs.

    Yes sir, same for me yesterday with Willow. I thought it was caused by flashing DFE after flashing ROM, but so probably it's not the case. I solved flashing the latest stable fastboot MIUI rom from XiaomiAdbFastboot Tools, than flashing OrangeFox, wipe system etc., format data and than flashing the ROM zip. I also enabled the OTA updater settings in OrangeFox (I don't think it serves any purpose, but I'm writing it anyway).

    EDIT: I tried to go to recovery and I got stuck again......so don't try to open it again... @iamsaalim

    EDIT2 - installing Pitch Black Recovery (as said in previous posts) allows to open recovery but it got stuck on bootanimation if I reboot into system
    1. Flash vbmeta.img and recovery.img using adb fastboot
    2. Boot into recovery mode and connect ur phone to the computer using usb cable
    3. Copy the recovery file, ROM, latest 10 fw
    4. (In the recovery mode) flash recovery file
    5. Flash 10 fw
    6. Wipe cache/dalvik, data, vendor, internal storage, system
    7. Format data
    8. Install ROM
    9. Boot to system
    If u using the latest version of PE+ or PE I suggest using pitch black recovery

    The stock camera included in this PE (Android 11) rom does not open on my Redmi Note 8.

    Needed to flash the attached Gcam Uninstall zip via TWRP to remove the stock camera i.e. which is system app and thus cannot be uninstalled normally.

    Found the attached GCam 8.1 apk to install on my Note 8. This GCam 8.1 works perfectly.
    3
    Weird, I was told I had to do at least two months of unoffical stable releases after producing five months of code that worked perfectly for every version and here you are without a proper working camera and you still got official?


    No wonder this ROM only gets maintained a month at a time.
    Camera works very fine for everyone, it's a issue from his side and don't worry I don't plan on dropping maintainership this early
