Update regarding HMnote8Pro MTK [begonia] support:
- We dropped support for HMnote8Pro MTK [begonia] due to a lot of bricks caused by installing TWRP or Magisk or any other mods.. MTK does not allow to boot to Fastboot if something "goes wrong" and users are forced to flash images via SPFlash Tool EDL mode which is locked by Xiaomi for few authorized accounts only.. so for safety of users, we will not release any ROMs for this device..
PS: We do not recommend buying MTK devices if you want to use our ROMs..

Should we perform a "clean install" or we can w8 for the updater app and make a "drty flash" or just download and dirty flash? I think i remember it was recommended to do a clean install when installing a new version of android but im not sure if im not mistaking with "when switching roms" thing?
