Hey guys, judging from the number of users between Slimkat, CM, and Mokee that are having trouble installing, here is a guide to install any AOSP-based ROM for the Xiaomi Mi3

Installation Guide:
  • Be on a KitKat ROM before flashing
  • You must have a custom recovery installed that allows SELinux.
  • Download the Xiaomi Mi3 build .
  • Download the gapps
  • Disable True Dual Boot
  • Fully wipe your device from Recovery if you are not coming from the ROM you're flashing already.
  • Install ROM on System 1
  • Wipe Dalvik and Cache
  • Reboot
  • Enjoy, hit the thanks button

Would be rather helpful if you explain it in a bit more detail. People who don't know some of the things written above will be left even more confused.

Agreed, some newbies do not know all the acronyms and versions... I know KitKat is Android 4.4.x , but what custom recovery? TWRP (TeamWin Recovery Project)? Clockword Mod? The Mi3 W (Snapdragon 800 chipset?). Anyone else want to expand / pitch in?

Thanks.

Thumbs up
get the latest recovery from either twrp or cwm. It'll work. just be sure you get the correct build.

CANCRO is the international version (snapdragon)
and most of the roms are for cancro only

Is it just me or does formatting cache with CWM take forever on this device? I'm wating for at least fifteen minutes now and it used to take just seconds on my old device. I know the MIUI revocery had that annoying 98% bug but CWM shouldn't be affected by the same thing right?
