I wish LOS is like this:
LOS 17 for dipper
- Calls recording integrated in dial + bubble feature
- Google SMS with chat feature enabled
- Google recorder app
- Gcam 7.2 with night sigh works
- Data encrypted
:)) hope it possible

Bugs i have found on the 19/12 build so far:
  • Battery-LED not working (neither on "low battery", nor on charging) --> "LightsService: Light requested not available on this device. 2"
  • Wifi hotspot not working for 5Ghz --> "SupplicantStaIfaceHal: Can't call getKeyMgmtCapabilities, ISupplicantStaIface is null"
  • "Digital Wellbeing" keeps crashing when you enter "default apps" section in system settings
  • CTS-Profile invalid (possibly not surprising)
  • Netflix App not showing up in play store (related to invalid CTS-Profile?)
  • some apps randomly freeze (very rare, cannot reproduce reliable)

Will play around with Android Auto tomorrow.

Hi. First of I just want to thank you for this amazing ROM, appreciate all the hard work. One thing I can't get working is one of my mobile banking apps (Lloyds Mobile Banking UK), when I check the system passes safety net. So I'm not quite sure where it's detecting root. Any ideas? Btw I have tried with a clean install without root, and same thing happens.

Its not.about rooted. Your bootloader is unlocked. LineageOS doesn't hide that status.
Flash Magisk and hide apps

Thanks for the bug report.
Battery leds work fine here.. not sure what happening for you. Did you check settings to make sure the brightness for the led isnt turned down?

Ok. Just to confirm I have magiskHide enabled and Safety net seems to be passing, but it's this one app that keeps detecting root. On the LOS 16 it works flawlessly, even with unlocked bootloader. I'm staying with LOS 16 atm for this reason.

It should be the same LOS16, safety net is not passed as LOS does not hide unlocked status. Maybe, some app detect rooted status as unlocked devices have high risk as rooted devices.
Some staying bootloader unlocked to have LOS mainly so
Some prefer have unlocked heavily modified ROMs to flash
Some like having pre-rooted ROMs, such as MMX and MiRoom

    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.

    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.

    Important notes:
    * Required * firmware version must be based on MIUI *-based builds.
    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.

    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...
