Been using it for a few days now. Really stable rom, good performance, camera works fine, and battery looks good too so far. Bluetooth is really stable too, never had a connection break with my MI Band 4. Thanks developer for the excellent rom.

Great work! I've been using it for a week after coming for xiaomi.eu and it's pretty good. I got bootloop updating at first, but tried a second time with OrangeFox Recovery (and with the OTA updates on) and it went fine.
I have the feeling that my mic is a bit lower than it used to be, but it can be only a impression, idk. Anyhow, thanks for the rom.

anyone how to fix ghost touch issue??

some of the redmi 7 users here in my country says that the ghost touch was a software issue and was repaired/fix when they flash china rom to their redmi 7...

i did and tried it to my redmi 7 but no luck...

so i've tried to flash custom rom like this one (Lineage OS), but the ghost touch is still there...

i want to fix it w/out spending money so i can give it to my mom :(

thanks in advance...

I'm not requesting to move entirely to f2fs, but to add duplicate entries in fstab, like in the Xiaomi Note 5 Pro ROM.
Shouldn't this still be backward-compatible with existing devices that use ext4 while still allowing new ones to use f2fs ?

See We are supporting ext4 only from the beginning. So that will be useless unless I m going to switch f2fs as default.

People in telegram lineageOS group are asking: why can't they disable recovery update?

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11 (R), 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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    Guys I have seen a lot of guys are discussing about magisk. Actually magisk is not a important thing to make the rom to boot. Just flash lineage 18.1 zip and a11 gapps to upgrade from lineage 17.1.

    If you really want magisk, flash it after first boot (best case).
    and you can use latest magisk 22.0 . It works well.

    and for update bootloops, You guys may be used someother recoveries which is not recommended. Follow the steps as per lineage wiki . (may be my twrp works well but I don't even recommend. just follow as per lineage wiki if you are a normal user)

    Is this rom compatible with redmi y3?
    Yes, the only difference between Redmi Y3 and Redmi 7 is the front camera, and this ROM also has the camera blobs for Y3 front camera.

    I'm just wondering if I can just upgrade to this by just flashing the zip file with TWRP? Because the steps on how to upgrade from the official guide is only for using adb sideload.
    Yes to upgrade from 17.1 to 18.1, just flash the 18.1 zip, then the Android 11 GApps zip and then other zips (Magisk etc.) in TWRP. No wiping or deleting required. I did it this way
