[ROM][UNOFFICIAL][ginkgo][11] LineageOS 18.1 for Redmi Note 8 / 8T

Search This thread
Hello everyone!

Hope this is the right forum for this question.

I recently got myself a Redmi Note 8T (because I wanted to use NFC) and as of today should be eligible for bootloader unlock. (Waiting period is over.)

As I hate MIUI with all my heart ;) I am considering installing Lineage on my new phone ( as I already did on my Note 7). The only thing that annoyed me using LOS was that, so far, I simply could not get Netflix to run.

So here's my question:

Is there a simple and reliable way of installing and using Netflix under Lineage on my Note 8T?

I am not too afraid of tinkering around with Magisk, but decided not to use it on my Note 7 because in my opinion it caused more problems than it solved. (Banking apps complained and could be convinced to run although I hid Magisk and whatnot.)

Any hints would be greatly appreciated!

Tnx!

    I have redmi note 8 Without T and this ROM and... Netflix is working. I downloaded normally on play store. No tricks... At least for me
     
    `Please did the May 18 2021 Build get pulled?

    The updater keeps failing to download it and the most recent file in the sourcefrge folder is the May 4 Build
    Yes, what about that update?

    BTW: Netflix works flawlessly without any toying around with Magisk et al. Great job, thank you!

    Edit: But now I ran into a/the bug in Android Auto and Android 11 that sends all audio through the phone's speaker instead of my car audio. Android Auto is already version 6.4, but the bug still persists...

    Any workaround known?

      Development with my ginkgo-dev sources is now over. I am bringing up ginkgo to official 18.1 from our 17.1 trees. Stay tuned.
      I will update the rom once I have finished my bringup.
      Also I have exams, so please be patient. Thanks
      Good luck and thanks for your work!

      LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

      All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

      What's not working :
      • You tell me
      Instructions :
      • Download the latest build and gapps
      • Reboot to recovery
      • Flash the latest build and gapps
      • Reboot
      Downloads :
      Reporting Bugs
      • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
      • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
      • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
      • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
      Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

      Code:
      What is your--
      LineageOS version:
      LineageOS Download url:
      Gapps version:
      
      Did you--
      wipe:
      restore with titanium backup:
      reboot after having the issue:
      
      Are you using--
      a task killer:

      other modifications:
      
      Provide any additional information (observations/frequency of problem/last version it worked on/etc) as needed:
