FLoC = Federated Learning of Cohorts
“FLoC runs in your browser. It uses your browsing history from the past week to assign you to a group with other “similar” people around the world. Each group receives a label, called a FLoC ID, which is supposed to capture meaningful information about your habits and interests.”
“Ventoy is an open source tool to create bootable USB drive for ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI files.
With ventoy, you don’t need to format the disk over and over, you just need to copy the ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI files to the USB drive and boot them directly.”

After upgrading to LineageOS 17.1 I couldn’t play any audio via bluetooth connection from my Xiaomi Mi 8.
To fix this issue, just go to developer options and disable
Bluetooth-AD2P-Hardware-Offload and reboot your phone.
Install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB)
# check if device is found adb devices # reboot into sideload modus adb reboot sideload
Or manually boot into TWRP recovery holding Volume Up + Power when the phone is off. Navigate to
Update MIUI Firmware
If your current MIUI Firmware does not support Android 10, you have to update it first.
Dowload the newest MIUI Firmware for your device from https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/dipper/.
Flash the new Firmware via TWRP or via ADB sideload.

Download and flash new LineageOS image
I’m using the LinageOS fork LineageOS for microG. Download it from here: https://download.lineage.microg.org/dipper/ (MI 8 = dipper)
The upgrade steps are the same as for the officially rom: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/dipper/upgrade. In my case only flashing the new image.
