    Post [ROM] [11.0.0] [polaris] ArrowOS 11.0 [OFFICIAL] [WEEKLY]

    Tried to flash this while still encrypted ... hitting reboot loop - forever loading of arrow logo (could be because I am on M1803D5XE and not Intntl Version Too?) What's the best way to permanently unencrypt via TWPR nowadays? Do I have to install Arrow 10 and then unenecrypt from there? A++...

    Post Paranoid Android Quartz 5 - Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S

    Looks good ... but wasn't the original purpose of Paranoid Android to avoid some of the more invasive Android Apps? (Looks like everything is included here). Is there a way to remove Google Search from the Home/Screen/Launcher? I don't want to use it at all.

    Post c.mi.com X-Post Accidentally performed MiFlash w/ Lock from CN Device to Global ROM

    Looks like there is more auth then I thought - I went ahead and disconnected my internet completely to find out that I'm only passing the initial MD5 hash locally ... and then there is additional auth after that .. . It's an interesting theory though - maybe someone is willing to help out ...

    No help at all huh ... Been trying XiaomiADB.exe today ... overall very impressed - I am wondering how the auth works ... Since I can successfully flash a Global ROM and then just can't boot = Error: This MIUI Version can't be installed on this device, even though the side-load/flash is...
