Hi guys,

Gonna try this ROM tonight.

I have 2 quick questions:

1) What version of open Gaps should I use? (I'd like as little google stuff on the phone as possible)
2) Does the ROM support encryption out of the box?

Hope someone can help

Thanks guys

You may have already tried, but you're not mentioning that. Did you hit search button and looked for your issue? Here's one of the several posts:



I don't have a car with Android Auto, but other people seem to confirm this workaround is fixing the flickering. If I understand correctly, this is the same problem you're having, right? If it's gonna fix it, beware that after every reboot you have to enable this option in developers settings.

I got the same issue with Android auto.
Can it be set on firmware by default - to avoid repeating steps after each reboot?
Thx

Rom does not update to May 1, it stays again on March 31. I guess this problem will be fixed in the update currently being prepared. However, there is an important discussion on the agenda about Xiaomi Browser. Could the delay of the update have anything to do with it?

The last build date is wrong because the last build (2020-04-30) took so long that the zip file was named 2020-05-01.

Heavy problems with LOS 17.1

Hi folks,
at the moment I'm having heavy problems installing new LOS updates.
I was on TWRP 3.3.1.1. and some LOS 17.1 Rom from March. I wanted to update to the latest, but TWRP did not decrypt my phone. Folders and files had cryptic names.
So I tried to flash a new TWRP 3.3.1.2 - result: My touch screen does not work since then. Neither in TWRP or in Orange FOX Recovery.
So I went to sideload with ADB and the Lineage Recovery, which can be controlled with the keys of my MI 8.
I could flash the LOS 17.1 from May 1st with OpenGAPPS and it booted - but still no touch response, even in LOS!!!
So I formated with fastboot: cache, userdata and system.
I searched latest MI 8 firmware (I have a China device and flashed latest stable China FW).
I flashed with ADB sideload again: Firmware, LOS 17.1 and OpenGAPPS and now it boots. It asks for SIM PIN, but I can't enter it - NO TOUCH RESPONSE.

Is my device somehow bricked? What can I do to get touch response again?

I distinctly remember that a rom dev got the same problem and he told that he had resolved the issue by flashing the last stable Oreo MIUI rom. Give that a go. Also it will not brick your device because of arb

    Is there a reason why we didn't see an update after lineage-18.1-20210624?
    Yes:

    But they are running again:

    Thanks for update. Battery life looks very good... :)

    I see difference in color richness between LOS 17 and LOS 18. On LOS 17 colors was vivid but on 18.1 are like washed despite I set colors to 'Boosted" in Screen settings. It's only me? :oops:
    I can actually reproduce this, contrarily to others who stated it was not a ROM-related issue, but some steps are needed to trigger it (and probably it is not HDR-related)

    It's certain apps that, when viewing media content (even non-HDR content), cause the display color profile to get messed up. You can reproduce this by viewing any image on Slide for Reddit (open source Reddit client).

    It is also a problem which affected LineageOS some years ago, and now it's back. It did not affect LOS17.1.

    In the attached screenshot there are the only log lines seemingly related to this issue, which get written as soon as the app displays an image (and cause the color profile to get immediately messed up)

    With the latest build i have massive camera problems. With BSG GCam Mod i can make a piture but HDR never completes. After a while the camera app doesnt open anymore. Also the Build in camera app says "Can't connect to camera" and also the flashlight is not working. I found an older thread that describes the Problem: https://gitlab.com/LineageOS/issues/android/-/issues/1769

    I switched back to 2021-06-17 Build an now the Camera is working fine.

    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.

    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.

    Edit: Uploaded the correct build now. Also added in gps fix

    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...

    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. :)

    new build in OP.
    For android auto users unless I say otherwise I have not fixed your problem yet. :|
