    Post How To Guide Run an GSI on your Mi Pad 5

    Happy purr-y 2022! Thanks for the updates on Android 12 GSIs! When I tried PE12 briefly, apart from it crashing like mad, I found the following inconveniences: * a green icon (for system, Google location history etc) keeps appearing and disappearing on the status bar way too often. It's visually...

    Post [GSI][UNOFFICIAL][12] Pixel Experience

    No unfortunately PE12 didn't last on me long. I tried 2 versions at 2 occasions, but they both lasted for a bit but soon started crashing furiously. I also found PE12 was too underdeveloped for me in terms of tweak-ability. I have been using PE11+ for a couple of weeks and it's been working...

    Post [OnePlus 8T][ROM][OTA][Oxygen OS] Repo of Oxygen OS Builds

    Thanks! Just managed to flash this BA (EU) rom on OOS 11.0.11.11 AA (global) without a problem. The root and twrp were wiped out (as expected, I reckon) but everything else was intact after flashing. Thanks for making this full zip available so quickly! 😺

    I'm on the final version of PE11 plus. I use a flip cover (for auto sleep / wake). My device wakes up when I opened the cover, but doesn't go to sleep when closed. Is anyone else having the same issue? It worked fine with the stock. The display goes onto sleep as intended after the set duration...

    Yes it's working fine except for the pen. Check the GSI thread on the non-pro Pad 5 forum. I have posted there a few times myself.

    Post Question Android 12L --> Custom Rom

    The SMS (both sending and receiving msgs) works fine on mine (Pad 5 pro 5g). The voice call doesn't work at all. You can't even use a dialer for 'secret codes' for testing. I am currently on a GSI, but it was the same on MIUI. I am in the UK if it makes a difference.

    Post Question Pen on Custom ROMs?

    No, the pen doesn't work on PE11 GSI or any other GSIs I tried. It's a real shame. Still for me PE11 is much better than MIUI.

    Oh hello fellow kitty cat! I don't have the Xiaomi keyboard, but my Bluetooth one (Logitech K380) works well. My bluetooth mouse also works well. No difference from MIUI. Btw, one downside with the PE11 (or any?) GSI is that charging will be slow. I am charing my tab now with the OEM charger...

    Good to know! Did you sort out the Bluetooth audio issue? For me, the problems with PE12 were: (1) the xiaomi pen couldn't be used as an input device although it was connected via Bluetooth; (2) nova launcher couldn't stay as the default launcher. I kept getting a pop up to choose the default...

    Yes it must be! Well done! Actually as the poster says I too later found out you didn't need this or the other module if you chose the settings this person was suggesting there. I didn't test it on PE11 though. Unfortunately all 3 GSIs I tried (LOS18, PE11, PE12) turned out unusable for various...

    Post How To Guide Run an GSI on your Mi Pad 5

    You know, I can't locate Fix Note9T Audio zip any more! I was using the tab to search and download it, and have since flashed other roms over it! Silly! Los18 & PE11 both have a massive problem with Google Play Services, which makes Google apps unusable.

    If anyone is interested: Both Pixel Experience 11 and 12 GSIs produce stuttering audio. You can fix it with a Magisk module called 'GSI Audio Stutter Fix'. Then you will notice audio doesn't come out when you use bluetooth headphones (as someone else said in this thread). You can use another...

    Yes I am on the same CN stock ROM (do we have any other choice atm?). I am hating MIUI every minute of the day... 1. You can choose Nova as your default launcher. But you have to do so from Nova, not MIUI settings. 2. Sorry I don't know... I gather you're talking about an app that reads a text...

    Post Question Yet Another Bricked Mi Pad 5 after Global Rom

    How did you unlock it in the first place? Maybe use the same method? Mine (pro 5g) came with CN ROM with the bootloader locked, so I had to go through the usual procedure of binding my Mi account and waiting for 7 days to unlock the bootloader. I used Mi Unlock as Xiaomi suggests.
