Hi!
I got my Mi 9T Pro two days ago and since I love LAOS on my OP2, the build by abhishek987 was a major consideration to purchase this model.
I bricked it a few times because of encryption (unbrick with MiFlash), but after I figured out about Disable_DM-Verty_ForceEncrypt the installation worked like a charm. As I'm reading on here, it seems that encryption is possible, and I would like to do that, if it is workling reliable (without eating data) and also without needing to reinstall all apps and configs. Is that possible?

I've chossen the Gapps build (20210222 Unofficial Rapahel Gapps) because as far as I know there is no such Open GApps "lite" for Android 11. The deep google integration is bothering me, especially the assistant. I think I disabled 99% of that suff, but I whish to be more sure about that. So is it a "take it - or leave it" option when it comes to Play store? Can we expect an Open GApps build for Android 11?

So far I'm using LAOS 18.1 on the 9T pro without major issuse, so I'll use it as daily driver - big shoutout to the developer abhishek987! I whish to donate something, but I respect his words in the donation description. So instead I think about donating to LineageOS LLC.

Bugs'n'stuff

So far, the only bug I have is the 48 MP sensor. I have tried the ANXCamera (which gives me the other lenses and a ton of funtionality back compared to the stock ROM 🤗), but the resolution is 12 MP and when I turn on 48 MP Mode, its 2,8 MP ?!??? Even with the 48MPFixR (ver. 200 and 201) I had no luck. Was anybody able to get this working?
Portrait Mode is only working in Camera PX (GCam Mod), otherwise I'll get an error in ANXCamera.

Nice stuff​

Try the Wifi Bonding Plugin in Magisk - I was able to hop from 144 Mbits local WiFi speed to 300 Mbits! This is really usefull when transferring data locally via AirDroid or just using our 200 MBits internet connection.

Feature Request​

While using the Stock ROM, I was able to unlock the screen when only a fingerprint symbol was shown.
Now in LAOS I'm unable to unlock while the screen is off. Enableling inactivity display fixes it, but I dont like having the clock and other symbols displayed - I whish it was at most only the fingerprint symbol, but it would be even better to have the fingerprint sensor always on when the display if completely off. Is there a way to do that? With inactivity display / fingerprint on, battery consumptions doesn't seem like a big concern, but I have to investigate that more over the next days.

Thanks a lot in advance!
Device Encryption: You will need to format data to preserve encryption when you move from Miui to a custom ROM.
Gapps: You can use NikGapps Core. If you have already flashed any other gapps you will need to clear data or do a fresh install.
Portrait Camera Bug: You can search in the telegram group for a modified 48MP fix for ANX cam. This mod will also solve the low resolution issue of front camera.

I dont have telegram. Is there a link where I could download the modded 40MP fix?

Thanks for this - it works well. On this ROM is there any way for anxcamera to start from the lock screen without an unlock?
Yeah, would like to know that too. I can selct ANXCamera as standard cam, but double press the power button will only get me to the lockscreen. Also didnt found a setting in ANXCamera.
However, Opencamera has a setting for that, and works with locked screen. It can be found in Settings -> more camera settings -> Show camera despite lock (or something, not eng as native language used). Is there a worround for ANX?

which anx camera version should i use... this one?
ANXCameraUnity_185R.SaltyIntelligentPlainsqueaker
yes, this is the one mostly working for me.

Although I think Image stabilisation is only working in Video mode - but not sure about that!
Automatic subtiteling is definetly crashing on ANX as well as GCam, and on GCam the tracking feature is compleatly broken (works on ANX).

You can enable screen off fingerprint (works exactly as you asked), on Settings -> Security -> Setting gear near Screen lock.

OMG! Why haven't I found this setting earier?! I swear, I googled before asking.
Thanks a lot! That's it!
Gonna edit my first post.

Now there is something else I wanted to address:
Automatic Brightness control - it's very unsmooth when it is adjusting the brightness compared to the stock ROM. Also the reaction time is very slow: about 3 secs from dark to bright and 5 from bright to dark. I read in this Reddit post, that it could be a bad calibrated light sensor in firmware. It is also present on my OP2 with LAOS 17.1, but I didnt knew it could be done much better until I had the 9T pro with stock ROM. Is anybody having the same issue in LAOS?

Yup, the autobrightness is definitely a little janky. But then again this ROM hasn't been updated since Feb. Most of the other A11 ROMs have fixed the autobrightness issue though. HavocOS (my personal fav), ArrowOS are decent alternatives to Lineage.

Was the fix implemented just reccently? I mean, its a nice to have, when it works smoothly. So I could deal with that when an Update fixes that in the future.

You can flash the 48Mp fix from post #584 via TWRP. But then again it will be pain in the ass to remove it in case it doesn't work for you. It is easier to remove it from Magisk.
Might be a dumb question, but what are the limitations on this? Would it be possible to Magisk flash Gapps and turn it off later, or even something like a dual boot?

1. It must be because in almost all the AOSP based ROMs that I didn't face this issue. If you go by the timeline of unofficial LOS updates it must have come on ~20th April. I guess the developer is busy with his personal life as somebody mentioned previously.

2. With flashing via TWRP you might have to wipe data/ flash ROM again to remove the mod. Or if you know the directory of the mod you can delete it from TWRP file manager. With magisk it is much easier to disable/remove. Regarding Gapps not all Gapps can be flashed via Magisk. There is a special gapps called MagiskGapps developed by wacko1805 which you can flash via magisk. You can actually try it if you are up for it. You can check out the details here
