In the meanwhile I flashed the latest unofficial build with latest opengapps and I can confirm it's not working.. I'm trying to find 07/02 Opengapps but I can't, will try in a while with 10/02 version, let's see what's gonna happen..

    I doubt dipper will be on it.
    I'm trying to get merge/review rights for dipper tree on lineage gerrit.
    If it doesnt go ahead I'm pulling the pin.
    If I get merge permissions I'll hopefully get dipper on the initial list in time.

    You doubt? Why? And why shouldn't you get those rights? There is absolutely no doubt that you're doing a fantastic job. Your LOS 16 ROM works excellent and you're the best maintainer the Mi 8 user community could wish for themselves. So why shouldn't the LOS-Core-Team appreciate that also?
    Thumbs up for you! :good::good::good:
    We don't want you to pull the pin! :crying:

    Since Android 11 is in the start-up atm there should be a new official blogpost from the los team about LOS 17 and the whole roadmap in the next few weeks.

    Think there was a bug for this in the last build I made.
    I 'think' i may have experienced the same but its fixed for me now. (So wait for next build)

    I have been trying to get our GPS working properly so I can push changes for official 17.1 builds.
    However I havent managed to find an acceptable solution yet.
    I can make GPS work properly but the required changes wont be accepted in official builds.
    It works in Lineage 16 with my previous change but doesnt for 17.1

    Hopefully I can get this sorted soon...

    Thank you for your reply, I've tried several firmware and gapps combinations but I wasn't able to make it work, now I know why. :p

    Speaking of which, I've tried both global stable firmware based on Android Q and latest xiaomi.eu's one, the latter seems to be better for the latest LOS17 build for what I've been able to test them. Which one will you suggest to use? I mean, is it preferred to use the stable or update it once in a while with the beta version? I've never understood how to deal with this firmware thing.

    Also, on my first install of the latest build I was able to reach 5:30h of screen time including the installation procedure, haven't seen those numbers in a while on my mi8, great job, man! Hope you'll be able to sort out all the issues, this ROM is gonna be amazing, thank you for your hard work! :cowboy:

    I tried in different cars but whenever I want to use it the display in the cars gets black and on the phone it freeze so I have to do a restart.

    What's the problem of GPS?

    extra satellites arent showing up as gps cant load XTRA_SERVER settings from overlays anymore.
    If I use MIUI's gps_debug.conf in /system/etc it loads the settings from there.

    Need to find the right way to set it. I'm thinking carrierconfig as thats where everything is apparently moved to but unsure of the syntax and formatting for it.

    Why not add that settings in vendor/etc/gsp.conf?

    Anyone noticed if 4G+ isn't working or is it just a graphic thing? Like the icon isn't showing as it's supposed to be?
    With LOS16 I used to have 4G+ working at my parents' house and yesterday my phone was only in 4G, same happened downtown.

    Anyway, as I've written a few posts ago, the battery is way much better for me than LOS16, for example overnight I used to have 4/5% drain, now it's just at 1/2%. With latest charge I had 5:50h screen time, I kinda use the phone always the same, so that's great, I wasn't able to reach this with LOS16. Can't wait for next builds, great job infrag!

    Maybe there are a few bugs here and there, sometimes when I open a notification it lags for example, I've read other people's posts, but for being still in beta, I dare say it's very good!

    For those who use GCam, I've found this version with tons of costumization and options and stuff like that.. I haven't changed anything and haven't made tests, but out of the box I was able to take great pictures in several light conditions, take a read:

      @infrag may we have a new unofficial once the June security update has been merged? That would be great! Thanks much!
      Uh yep sure. Sorry didnt think anyone was using unofficial builds. I'll upload one soon. If you prefer I can also upload stock lineage kernel with safetynet fix and you can flash that with latest los builds (till there are kernel changes you care about).

      Thank you for helping me with camera app, all you mates posting above!

      Good question. My lineageos is not rooted, so no magisk needed.
      actually lineage official builds dont hide the fact you have an unlocked bootloader. Therefore most people get flagged from their banking apps as having an untrusted device. This includes Gpay. There are ways around it like flashing a custom kernel or using attestation hacks or as others have said using Magisk.

      There are also some people who say they dont need anything but not sure how they get away with that but they are the lucky few I believe :)

      Looks good, but is there any other solution which would not require flashing magisk etc? I am fed up with flashing, bootloops, backups... I mean I can do this, but I already lost too much time to make my Dipper work as a daily device. And my banking app works fine now...
      Just use gcam. Its far easier. Ask for someone to post a link.

      nfc fix has been submitted for official builds. Thanks @Wiedmann and @shatteringlass for testing.
      I can confirm the fix is also working for the nfc payment app of my local bank in the Netherlands. Thanks infrag!

      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. 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.

      GPL compliance:


      Device tree source code: LineageOS/android_device_xiaomi_dipper
      Kernel source code: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_kernel_xiaomi_sdm845




      Compatibility:
      Compatible with Xiaomi Mi 8
      Builds are based off the Xiaomi's Android 10 firmware.

      Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if MIUI was previously installed and device was encrypted.

      All LineageOS team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!

      so the newest build 04/11/2019 uses Xiaomi Q blobs.
      Therefore it has some bugs:
      I havent got bluetooth audio working yet. Bluetooth calls seem to work fine though.
      Sound: Speaker works if you make a phone call first and switch to speaker during the call. After that everything else starts working.
      Edit: fixed. - GPS all satellites should show up now.
      Android Auto fixes probably havent been added yet to lineage but when anything shows up I'll add it.

      The reason this build took so long to be released is that Q radio blobs kept causing a reboot when data was used and switched to low power mode. I believe I have fixed this.


      https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bhurP2zIyZf93jJzSN1IBbiMBhmbSd_h

      Edit: Uploaded the correct build now. Also added in gps fix
      17
      Also fyi I'd hoped to have anther build up by now but since lineage has changed to 17.1 branches instead of 17.0 my build system is a bit of a mess. Waiting for all the repos to be updated to 17.1 before releasing anything. Hopefully it wont be too long...
      15
      18/12/2019 finally a working q build with q blobs and working audio.
      havent tested it a lot so any bugs let me know. There will be a v2 of the audio fix/change. This fix was just to make it work. :)
