Installation Succes at the first Try
I know this may sound a little weird, but today I flashed UT on my Mi A2 at the first try. Succesfully.
The only thing I did before was unlocking the device with fastboot oem unlock (and then follow the instructions on the device) and download the vendor image as the installer (0.8.8-beta, app-image) was suggesting. I had to give the path to vendor.img and that was it. I did not flash twpr, I did not downgrade to android 9, the installation went through without any issue and everything is working fine as far as I can see... Only the video capuring broke afte taking one single good video... hm . I'm on stable channel now.
thanks to everybody at ubports and the porters and everyone here in this great forum, hope this report is encouraging.

Feels good, doesn't it?
@moem well, indeed, it does!
@messayisto Thank you for the positive and encouraing news. You mentioned you did not downgrade to Android 9. What version and OS were you running before installing UT?
Also, were you able to get the Video Capture working again?
@2devnull To be honest: I am not sure, I think it was Android 10 on he phone before. I had only a quick look in the system settings before to enable developer-mode and then decided to risk the installation without downgrading. Sorry, this isn't the most precise information.
And no, I didn't bother to fix the video capturing, cause the second camera does the job quite well and I was too lazy. But if there is a solution, please let me know.
Sorry that I can't help you more.
@messayisto I believe the one I bought has Android 10 already. I guess I'll take the risk and move to UT from there. Hopefully I don't miss a step and screw it up.
@2devnull good luck!
