Ok, got my lavender with Stock MIUI 12.5 (A10), unlocked (not so fast/easy with Mi account etc.) flashed divested-18.1-20221209-dos-lavender (A11)
I congratulate everyone involved and I like enhanced
security: Monthly Updates, Automated Kernel CVE Patching, System WebView Mulch
privacy: Tracker Blocker hosts file, Privacy Oriented Browser Mull, Malware Scanner Hypatia, encryption on
Freedom: F-Droid Included, proprietary blobs removed,
Documentation/Suggestions: the homepage with a clean structure and especially Recommended Apps is super and unique!
So far I installed: AnySoftKeyboard, Audio Recorder, Aurora Store (sorry), Conversations, DAVx5, Gcam Services Provider (Basic), Hypatia, K-9 Mail, KeePassDX, Mulch, Mull, VLC, GrapheneOS-PdfViewer, Signal, Snapseed, MPE, GCam (MGC 8.4.300 Parrot043 V1.5 Video EIS seems better then Open Camera one), GPSTest, WiFiAnalyzer
I plan to install: Nextcloud, OsmAnd, Telegram, Barcode Scanner: Binary Eye, Shelter, National VoIP App
First impressions: I’m not sure if I’m happy with Etar Calendar, Simple Gallery should be ok (still have not found a gallery app with included satisfying editor including rapid privacy face pixelation/blur etc.), do not understand why eSpeak is preinstalled, regarding Blocker hosts file some stats of blocked traffic would be good - also easy change of DNS or exceptions/whitelist might be desirable.
Minor things: LTE icon can not be changed to 4G, also found no possibility to show Download/Up Rates.
Need to test (if I need/if it works): UnifiedNlp/GPS Apps (Local Traffic, Local Pharmacies, Local Weather), G SafetyNet Apps (Banking, Local ID/OTP, Work related ID/Login 2Factor stuff incl. GAMAM big tech mainly Google, Microsoft and Meta), Best Private/Work Profile use with Dual SIM, Document/Book Scan App (Open Camera and the used GCam have no integrated function, on PC OCR planned), Cast to Android/Lineage TV, use of WhatsApp (without contact access or even better isolation).
What I would wish most from a ROM, probably related more to AOSP & Lineage OS but to note: integration of “PIM-Package” (IMAP, CalDAV+iCal, CardDAV, WebDAV, advanced Profile tweaking, Group Ringtones; SPAM filter for SMS, Calls, E-Mails, Messengers; STS/S2T “speech to text” functions for search and commands)
