Just some suggestions:

1. Please, disable/remove mouse pointer which is kind of irritating sitting in the middle of the screen all the time
2. Would be great if we can utilize the device capacitive buttons and hide soft buttons... more screen real estate

I've managed to hide the pointer with custom theme but that's just work around...


Edit: Installed the chinese-english version from this thread which has the mouse pointer removed. All credits goes to the author.

Any managed to get this working on MIUI 8 Global Beta version? I stuck with the MI logo at boot after I wipe data, mount system as read only and try to reboot to recovery again.

If I am not mistaken there is a separate TWRP which works with MIUI 8... Search in official MIUI forum.

I had created a full (boot+recovery+system+data) backup to an external SD card in TWRP 3.0.2-0, with compression enabled. Flashed another firmware, played a little then desired to restore the previous one. Booted TWRP, selected Restore, pointed to the backup. TWRP reported a successful restoration. After a reboot, all system setting and applications with their "internal" data (/data/data) had been restored. But user data (/data/media/0, bound to /sdcard) were not restored.

I booted TWRP again and performed a separate data restoration. Successful completion report but no user data in /sdcard. /sdcard looks like wiped, containing just basic Android directories.

I unpacked data.ext4.win000 and data.ext4.win001 to a single .tar file using 7-Zip (under Windows) and looked on its contents. All user data file paths are there but they begin from /storage/emulated/0. Entering TWRP's File Manager, I see there is no /storage mount point at all.

Since .tar file contains uncompressed data, I tried to find some text fragments of user data stored in /sdcard using a hex editor. I found no such fragments.

Therefore, /sdcard contents (from /data/media/0) is not stored in the backup. So all /sdcard contents will be lost if not stored separately elsewhere.

Definitely, it is not a "full Nandroid backup", only a "system app+data+settings" backup.

So why /sdcard file paths are stored as /storage/emulated/0 if TWRP does not create /storage mount point?

And why /sdcard file contents are not stored in the backup?

It's because of the dm-verity protection included in the MIUI firmwares.
To disable it, you have to:
- Format all encrypted partitions on fastboot (fastboot format system; fastboot format userdata;...)
- Boot on TWRP and flash a MIUI recovery image
- Download this patched boot file
- On fastboot flash the patched boot.img (fastboot flash boot boot-patched.img)

I'm trying to flash boot.img with the xiaomi flasher but it doesn't work. Do you have advice? Thanks.
