Nope, not working like this. I already posted the correct way somewhere here in the forum. Please stop posting general copied tutorials from the internet without actually trying them before. People will try, get stuck and brick their phones eventually.

Exactly, since the DATA partition of the mi 8 is encrypted, you need to disable the encryption and format the DATA partition. Otherwise you´ll end up with a bootloop.

Short tutorial:
1. Unlock Bootloader if not already unlocked (IMPORTANT otherwise you´ll brick your phone)
2. In case you want to switch to another rom: Unzip and flash Fastboot rom using Miflash (at the bottom right choose the clean install option, make sure you DO NOT choose clear and lock, that will brick your phone!)
3. TWRP works, just use the latest version (https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...0&postcount=46) - So install TWRP
4. In TWRP flash https://zackptg5.com/android.php#disverfec and format DATA partition (the DATA partition of the mi 8 is encrypted, you need to disable the encryption and format the DATA partition. Otherwise you´ll end up with a bootloop)
5. Install Magisk with TWRP (https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445
) max. version 16.4. After that version the Universal Safetynet fixer won´t work anymore. It´s needed to get the phone Google certified. Boot up into TWRP again and flash Universal Safetynet Fixer (https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/xiaomi-safetynet-fix-t3600431) after.

Result will be a Google certified device with hidden unlocked bootloader. Therefore GPay works as if the phone is locked. No idea what will happen after an OTA update. As long as the boot image doesn´t get replaced, everything should be fine. If it gets replaced, you have to do it all again and have to actually backup the whole DATA partition before. Second option wouldn´t be very convenient ;)

For Face Unlock set the region to Singapore, NOT Hongkong! Setting it to HK affects the volume of the headphone audio to a really low volume (at least in Miui10 8.8.7)

Of course, because it a CUSTOM rom and not an official one. And not everyone trusts these custom roms. But great if you do.
