Hi
I'm new here, but wanted to report a strange bug that is happening in new versions of Xiaomi.eu for Mi 8 Lite (but I've seen members reporting the same thing on other devices)
The icon animations that are very beautiful just don't work anymore, I've tried everything to solve it but unfortunately I couldn't do it at all.
Summarizing the bug:
The animations work the first time you install the rom, but after a while, even without installing anything on your smartphone, they stop working altogether.
And even restarting, applying default theme and etc they don't come back at all.
What's happening?
What is the real cause of this happening?
In version 12.0.1 that doesn't happen, the icon animations works fine only there is a bug in the security app that doesn't open the verification and charging animation in glow is all lagging on fast charger, a bug that also occurs in the new stable version 12.5.1

Icon animations don't work anymore if you update the launcher. You have to use the stock launcher that comes with the ROM for them to work.

I have experienced the bug you explain one time, that animations just stop working. Don't remember which of my phones or ROM though.

Icon animations only work with default icons or if the currently applied icon pack have their own animations

Special effects like wave effect on surrounding icons after uninstall an app also only work with default theme and icons

Please note that this is not available for all devices.
To improve performance, some features are disabled on low-end and evn mid-range devices

EDIT: also enable "global icon animation" in homescreen settings

Sorry, can help you. I don't use this feature.
