Hey guys, Today I am creating a Guide on How to Convert Mi A2 to Mi 6X without triggering ARB.
This guide is based on Guide by @yunusasik(Telegram : @dejavutr ) so All credit goes to Him.
First of All Download the Convert.zip from here
All files needed to be replaced have already been replaced in convert.zip.
Then, Follow the Following Steps to Flash Mi 6X Firmware on your A2

First Make Sure you already unlocked bootloader flashing and flashing critical ("fastboot flashing unlock" and "fastboot flashing unlock_critical")
1) Install Qualcomm Driver (next next next) (Also Windows update can do this trick when you plug )
2) Install QPST (use setup from the QPST Alternative folder. )
(find QFİLL on start menu or qpst installed directory), open QFİLL from start menu or opst installed folder.
3) Select Flat Build Mode
Select Programmer File prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf ( already changed no arb risk )
Select XML files rawprogram0 and patch0.xml
4) Put the phone on the edl mode
navigate to ADB Folder and Open tikla.bat, it will open command windows in that directory.
Use "fastboot oem edl" command to Enter "Emergency Download Mode ( EDL )"
Press Download
When install finish. Power up the phone.
MIUI 9 Ready to BOOT (First boot may take time you can hard reset via pressing vol up - down and power together )
5) You dont need to setup miui 9 just go fastboot again (vol down + power ( when phone closed ) )
From this section you can either install MIUI 10 (OREO) or Custom ROM ( Which one you want )
Guide will be Resume about flashing MIUI 10 ( OREO )
Flash TWRP
" fastboot flash recovery twrpwayne.img "
" fastboot boot twrpwayne.img "
If twrp start chinese you can set language on that screen
6) Wipe / Advanced Wipe
7) System + Dalvik + Cache + Data + Internal
8) Flash MIUI 10(no arb).zip via adb sideload (put file into adb folder and use adb sideload MIUI 10 (no arb).zip) or put file on the
storage via mtp, if its works
" No need for gapps "
If you want root Flash Magisk.
Welcome to MIUI 10 without arb

You can use MiFlash Tool 2016 64Bit only this one works good others may stuck sometimes and risky because if you unplug when installing you have to use test point method for saving phone.
You can enable camera2api with "Camera2api enabler" on play store (ONLY MIUI 10 OREO)
If qfill installation somehow corrupt use "QPST Alternative" folder or Miflash from above
You can Download Newer MIUI Releases from here
Just make sure to delete the "firmware-update folder" using winrar etc.

-------

UPDATİNG TO MIUI 10 PIE

Download MIUI 10 PIE from here (if you are in mobile press "try download anyway" )
Open zip file and delete "Firmware Upgrade" folder from the zip (Most İmportant)
Boot into TWRP
Go Wipe / Advanced Wipe
Wipe "System + Dalvik + Cache + Data"
(Make sure you are using ext4 file system on Cache and Data partition)
Flash MIUI 10 Pie zip
Flash Hex Kernel download from here (We need this because we are not using fw update folder for updating kernel etc (because its trigger arb 4))
Flash Magisk if you want root
Reboot to system
Welcome to MIUI 10 Pie
You can check new mıuı eu updates from here.
For enabling camera2api on MIUI 10 Pie you have to edit build prop download this application from play store
Give root permissions
Search for HAL3 then change boot of them 0 to 1
Restart the phone.
For stable gcam use this

------

Converted Mi6X Indian Variant Camera FİX

1. Flash any custom ROM or MIUI 10 ROM firmware-update folder deleted.
2. Flash the zip from here via TWRP.
3. Reboot


------

Convert Back to A2

Download latest a2 stock rom.
Put phone to edl mode again (fastboot oem edl)
Flash stock rom via QFİLL with same method (Select .ddr and xml files from stock rom folder) and power up.
Done.
(If you have wifi camera or splash screen problems. Flash stockrom with miflash on fastboot (vol down + power ) again.)

(Alternative) You can use MiFlash Tool 2016 64Bit to convert back.
Select A2 stock rom folder.
Put phone to edl mode (fastboot oem edl).
Flash Rom when its done, power up the phone to fastboot (vol down + power ) and flash rom again. (for solving any camera wifi etc issue)

Seems like you can

I'm curious, how long does it take for QFIL to process MIUI9 stuff? I pressed download button and it's stuck or something for like an hour now.

It does take a long time than Mi Flash. I check from time to time where it stopped and it does move a bit, like a snail's pace kind of slow.
