Download link 7.11.18:
Mega
Baidu

Android One Nougat 7.12.19 is out but not ported. However, you can install it using my modded TWRP
https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-...0#post74745680

How to install:
- Unlock bootloader
- Flash TWRP
- Wipe data, cache and dalvik
- Flash A1 Firmware
- Flash rom zip file
- Reboot

How to update
- Boot into TWRP
- Wipe cache and dalvik/art
- Flash rom zip file
- Reboot

Known issues:
- If you dont flash A1 firmware your fingerprint will acts as a button while unlocked.
- If you don't have Goodix fingerprint variant, fingerprint may not work.
- You tell me.

FAQ:
Q: Can I flash over August patch without wiping data?
A: Yes, you can. However WiFi may not work. If that's your case try restoring network settings. (Settings -> More -> Restore network settings). If WiFi still doesnt work, you'll need to wipe data.

Q: Can I update via OTA?
A: No, you can't. You'll need to wait until I port the update.

Q: Does this ROM come pre-rooted
A: No, it's the A1 stock rom which doesn't come rooted. If you want root, flash Magisk through TWRP

Q: Can I install Xposed?
A: Yes, you can. Just make sure you download xposed for SDK 25.

Q: Will this rom unlock 4G 800MHz band (B20)?
A: No, it won't unlock it. Mi A1 uses a different modem which supports it. Mi 5X modem doesn't.

Q: Do I need to unlock my bootloader?
A: Yes, you need to unlock the bootloader before you can install any custom ROM.

Q: How can I unlock my bootloader?
A: Apply for permissions on http://en.miui.com/unlock/ then download the tool and follow the steps.

Q: Where can I download TWRP?
A: You can download it from here

As stated on FAQs, you cant update via OTA, as this OTAs are made for an A/B device, and Mi 5X doesnt support A/B.

It's OK if you come from another Android One port. Probably you will face some WiFi issues, to solve them read FAQs.

I cant say it for sure. Will see when it's released for the A1 if it can be ported.

Didn't you get any WiFi issues?

I got WiFi issues while updating from august to september. But not from september to october. Maybe updating from august to october dont cause any issue.
