Hello, the thread's title says all... Widevine was L1 in 9.12.5 and below on my Mi 9T but is L3 in 9.12.12. :(

EDIT: Widevine L1 patch is available! See #14 :)

EDIT 2: Widevine L1 is back in 20.1.21 beta ROM update for Mi 9T/Mi 9T Pro and others maybe!

point Checked and confirmed. L3
Out of your topic/
- Can you test about 5Ghz Hotspot?
it doesn't open. Only 2.4 Ghz is working. Not a big issue but was said as corrected.
thanks
Edit:
Got it working after reboot, but a second connection is inefficient. only 2.4Ghz stay available

9.12.19 = No more L3 or L1, Widevine is broken : Freeze all apps that checking Widevine.
@LOLO9393 and @giodeluigi Can you confirm?

EDIT: 9.12.19 (Reuploaded) = Widevine L3. Don't know if it was Magisk issue, I have reinstalled 20.1 instead of latest Canary.

You have a Mi 9T Pro/K20 Pro, it's an another issue not affected by Mi 9T/K20 users. :)

Hi
Sorry for answering late but I am just downloading the updated rom now.
EDIT:
Checked Wideline:
App freeze with black or white screen and fail reporting state.
No impact for me. No time free for Netflix...lol

== Widevine L1 patch for Mi 9T / Mi 9T Pro and others devices ==

Huge thanks to:
@Benfatica (found how to easily get L1 back - v1 patch),
@sauliiin (created the TWRP zip file - v1 patch),
@robi10101298 (shared files to make v2 patch for Mi 9T) and
@r4yv3n (shared files to make v2 patch for Mi 9T Pro)
from XDA forum!

Your device must have stock Widevine L1, otherwise it will not work...

INFO: Widevine L1 is back in 20.1.21 update without patch!

Download for Mi 9T only (v2):
TWRP_Davinci_Widevine_L1_Patch_v2.zip

-------------------------------------------

Download for Mi 9T Pro only (v2 - work on 20.1.16+):
TWRP_Raphael_Widevine_L1_Patch_v2.zip

-------------------------------------------

Download for all Xiaomi/Redmi devices (v1):
TWRP_Widevine_L1_Patch.zip

-------------------------------------------

Use Official TWRP to avoid possible big issues!


1) Download one patch and put this file in root of your phone's storage.

2) Boot to TWRP Recovery.

3) Go to "Mount" menu and tick "Vendor", then "Back".

4) Go to "Install" menu and find & select your previously downloaded zip file.

5) Do NOT tick "Reboot after installation" option!

6) Flash it.

7) After flashing, click on "Wipe Dalvik&Cache" button and do the wipe.

8) Reboot and check if it works!

:)

INFO:

- v2 = API version update (14 -> 15) for Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro devices only!

- In case of issue, try first version too (don't forget to follow the steps above!).

- If nothing working (don't forget to mount "Vendor" partition in TWRP before flasing the remover) => TWRP_Widevine_L1_Remover.zip

can this also eb used for the cepheus one? Seems the latest update downgraded it from L1 to L3
No problem.
If you fear to do it, Check in vendor/lib and vendor/lib64 if you have the relevant file called "liboemcrypto.so".
In this case your issue is not related.
If after zip install you get trouble just delete this file from folders.

Got the patch working on my mi 9t and got widevine L1 again. But the netflix app still shows only 540p (Tested on the test patterns video).

Is there anything I could do?
