Hello, I made a search on the play store, was looking for a good brightness application. The transition in automatic brightness levels bothers me a bit, since it goes up and down too fast.
For the last RR version I flashed latest firmware, but for the version you suggested me, which firmware version goes well?? I ask because I am facing a weird video playback problem, video seems to jump from time to time, stopping for a fraction of time and continuing, and I already know it is firmware related.

Best regards.

Im guessing 8.7.27 is the the recommended firmware for 2018-07-07 release, but im unsure, so add 8.7.26, 8.7.19 and 8.7.5 to sd in case of bugs or problems.

Im currently running 2018-07-07 with firmare 8.8.30 without problems currently.

My Setup
Firmware: 8.8.30
Rom: RR 2018-07-07 8.1
Adreno for 530 from below: Rev21 Treble
Kernel: Pepsy 270
Root: Magisk
Display Enhancement: BXRSVengine v4.0

I can't ensure same result on other Mi Mix device's

I recommend flashing adreno 313 from
https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-mix/development/driver-adreno-530-540-gpu-driver-t3815853

Flash
1. Firmare
2. Rom
3. Adreno driver (optional)
4. Rest of you flashables

You use that old BXRSVengine?
Last time i read about it, it's for 32bit CPUs, you don't have any problem in camera, heating, etc?

No problems or bugs upon flashing BXRSVengine.

It does not change any real gpu settings so no bugs will be present, all it does it make the screen look more alive, and upon that i change screen saturation to "54" with kernel adiutor.

I don't know but, after testing those BXRSVengine and analyze the logcat, i can't see that the engine working at all, keep in mind i'm using LOS16.
Even the 4 apps inside the zip file doesn't launch properly at all, which is means nothing is being done if those 4 apps is not running.
What's running is just some system.prop is being set and many of those props doesn't even set, because of those 4 apps is not running, lol.
Thanks for the information anyway.

Hello.

So far to get a stable system I flashed the following:
1- Firmware 8.7.12
2- Rom RR 2018-07-07 8.1 as suggested by gavin19
3- Gapps
4- Magisk 17.1 for root

Everything running fine. For stabilizing the apparent brightness ups and down I am using Lux Autobrights.

I was wondering about the Adreno [email protected] drivers? Is it usefull to try them? Aren't them included?

Best regards.

Just flashed the ...final update and FYI the long press power button for torch is broken in this update. (Tried toggling it on/off, rebooting, clearing cache etc.).

I've been thinking of making the move to a Pie based ROM and wandered if anyone has any experience with these on the MIX? Are they of age yet, or is best to stick with Oreo? Also anyone has any preference on crDroid, LOS...?

If you've been used to RR then moving to LOS you'll notice a definite lack of config options. That said, crDroid Pie is still missing some stuff, mainly encryption support/VoLTE (LOS is also missing these), and some of the tweaks too, like custom recents, smartbar/fling, font switcher etc. The majority of the tweaks are available and working, including the torch one.

In general, I find Pie to be smoother and has noticeably better battery life. You'll need to move to Pie ASAP anyway since I seriously doubt that anyone will be posting Oreo ROM updates going forward.

Thanks for the quick response, will probably give crDroid a chance. I tried using encryption once and it just caused issues; my phone never leaves my side (they call me Batman cause of my utility belt!) and I had to google VoLTE though I had a good guess at what it stood for!

Any experience with project treble? It looks to be the way forward, but is it any good yet?

Treble is good for devs in that it means a quicker/easier turnaround for ROMs when moving to a new Android version, but it doesn't really benefit us because the Mix doesn't truly support it (it's A-only, not A/B). So we don't get to make use of the seamless updates/rollback capabilities that true Treble devices do.

Also, the Treble GSIs are almost all generic versions of the respective ROM. You probably couldn't go to someone and ask them to add a feature or whatever, whereas you can here. If they did so, then anyone using the GSI would have it too, unless they started maintaining multiple versions. I have merged features from AICP/RR/CR into one another when asked (if able).

Treble ROMs really offer almost no advantage to us as end users, nor are they better (or worse) performing. That said, I'm glad it's an option, but not one that I think I'll ever avail of.

This is very true.
Some (or maybe a lot) of people got a wrong understanding about Treble.

The headphones can control the volume but cannot hear the sound。

Is this something you might build for our device @gavin19? Or will you focus on CrDroid Pie?

Resurrection Remix Pie sources just got released!
Is this something you might build for our device @gavin19? Or will you focus on CrDroid Pie?

The main reason I focused on crDroid, even with later Oreo builds, was that CR had 99.9% of the same features as RR. Where it had the same features, CR would sometimes have even more config options within those features. Lastly, CR would always get updated more often, and get bug fixes quicker. The move from Oreo to Pie is just another example of this. We've had CR for months already and RR is only now open to builds.

For building in general, I need to download 30GB+ each time I change ROMs since I only have a 256GB SSD (220GB is partitioned for building) to work with (I have a 128GB one too but it's almost all taken up by Windows/stuff) and don't have the room for two lots of sources. 220GB might seem enough, but by the time you have Ubuntu (~10GB), the source (~32GB), the cache to speed up builds (~30GB) and the size of all the source files once complied, it's almost full. If I only work on one ROM then I just have to download maybe a few hundred MB each month to pull in the new fixes/features.

Since I can only work on one at a time it makes fixing/adding stuff a pain. So I'll build CR and all seems fine, wipe it a start on RR, then someone posts in the CR thread that x is broken. Now I have to go and wipe RR, download 30GB+ of CR and do another build with some fix applied.

EDIT: Forgot one other thing. Building more than one ROM means I have to keep flashing between them to test, which means wipes/clean flashes over and over again to make sure there is no cross-contamination. A lot of the time I can't use the phone because of that. When I just have CR, it's usually only a dirty flash and done.

tl;dr If I had a bigger SSD I'd do RR (and probably AICP) too but it's too much hassle, especially since RR and CR are practically interchangeable at this point

RR is a very popular firmware and I am happy that you have resumed work on it again. I installed RR 7.0, everything works very smoothly and quickly.
Dear Gavin19, thank you very much for the good work.

    Version Information
    Status: Stable
    Last update: 7/7/18

    Special thanks to @Psy_Man. Without him, this ROM wouldn't be here.

    This is currently the top Oreo thread for Lithium.

    Would you be willing to consider building, perhaps monthly, to keep it alive? Pretty sure that there a great many fans like me who would be interested.

    I am building at least once per month. I have been PC-less for a week now and the last round of builds brought more bugs than fixes, so I didn't upload. CPU/MOBO/RAM is due tommorow so I'll be building RR/AICP/crDroid over Fri/Sat/Sun.
    7
    Update - 27/2*

    - Proximity working**
    - Update to April security patch

    * 8.4.19 firmware recommended

    ** Some issues - this is what has/hasn't been working for me in testing

    - Calls are fine in/out except earpiece sound will be lost if the speakerphone is toggled on/off. Nothing works to restore it, so be aware that once you switch to speakerphone, you're stuck with it for the duration. Note, I've only placed about 5 calls and received 4 so I can't say it's working all the time, but so far no missing audio on either end/missing UI/reboots
