Normally, the Mix Plus' bootloader can be unlocked quite easily:
1. enable OEM unlock in developer settings
2. open adb and type "adb reboot fastboot"
3. type "fastboot oem unlock"
4. press "volume up" to confirm

But what do you do if your volume button is broken? Well, you won't be able to flash any of the TWRP builds floating around for this phone because that requires an unlocked bootloader. However, there is another way:
1. unpack the official firmware (link is straight from vkworld.cc)
2. delete "checksum.ini"
2. move "boot.img" to any android
3. install magisk manager (tested with latest v7.4.0)
4. open magisk manager, press "install" and select "boot.img"
5. open /downloads, rename the new .img to "boot.img", and move it back into the stock firmware
6. plug in the Mix Plus while it's completely shut down
7. open SP Flash Tool (tested with v5.1824)
8. in the "download" tab, select "scatter.txt" under "scatter-loading" and "download only" in the drop-down
9. press the "download" button

Packages to remove:
everything with "prize" in the name. That includes the launcher, have a replacement ready. You should also remove the theme store, the system updater, and voice recorder.

Enabling full rotation:
adding windowsmgr.support_rotation_270=true to build.prop does nothing. Editing ro.sf.hwrotation rotates the display, but not the touch. Use Pranav Pandey's Rotation
