[Android] Upgrading LineageOS 16.0 to 17.1 on my Xiaomi Mi 8 (dipper)

Install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB)

https://wiki.lineageos.org/adb_fastboot_guide.html
https://github.com/M0Rf30/android-udev-rules#installation

# 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 Advanced-> ADB Sideload.


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.
