Has someone successfully flashed globeROM for Sirius and would tell me in which globeROM - TWRP - Magisk combination?
I tried 3 different, but unsuccessful attempts of flashing globeROM 18.11.15 today:

* booted into latest TWRP-3.2.3-LR_TEAM-v1102 (Google Drive Download) (flashing recovery was still not possible, only boot via usb)
* data wipe
* flashed globeROM (configured without Magiks/root access)
* rooted via TWRP (Magiks 16.6) [first and second attempt]
* data wipe again [second and third attempt]
* reboot
After every attempt I waited around 30 minutes while looking at the spinning globeROM logo, but the UI never came up :(

At first you should flash globeROM without any root option and let it boot up completely.
Then you are sure the ROM is fine.

There are some tutorials around telling you to flash 16.4 Magisk + some addons. I would try this. Seems that Mi 8 SE is having some serious problems with Magisk.

At least you havent bricked your device :P

Thanks for your reply. (Didnt see it before actually)
Just wanted to say that I finally managed to install globeROM (any xiaomi.eu rom for that matter) and the solution was to format (not just wipe!) the data partition.
Also I did as you suggested and let the fresh installed system boot one initial time before rooting to Magisk 16.6 (As this version was mentioned to be the last working one for Sirius).

Thanks for all the effort you put into globeROM!
At least you havent bricked your device :P
After having to wait twice (60 days!) for the unlocking process that would have been devastating. :lol:

Hey guys thanks for discussing . Currently flashing miglobe by twrp by your instructions . Will update soon

edit
Thank god its all working , even the sensors are all working . Though whats a little weird is when i restart the phone , it says mi unlocked . but when i go to the dev settings , unlock status oem is not enabled . When i change it after i restart its back to disabled?

Well , my phone is already rooted with magisk 16.6 so i dont mind at all
