This is a well common issue with Xiaomi and sub-brand. Unfortunately they uses different kind of panels like ie Tiamma, boe and a other derivated, this difficults to devs to adapt drivers for all them.

Of course Miui roms from Xiaomi are compatible with all its devices but this doesn´t happen with custom recoveries, roms, kernels, etc.

Discover your kind of panel using a hardware info app like Aida or Device Info HW and put to the consideration of the developer of the rom.

You can find EDL cable on a service repair shop also available on many internet sites for sales. You can make it too by your own easily following some of the available tutorial on Youtube.

The EDL cable is to force device to enter to EDL/download mode and you have to start it from device totally off, some devices like Xiaomi once they were unlocked (not before) enable this option by using a combination keys that is pressing the two volume buttons at exactly same time to connect device to pc through an USB cable.

According this site One Plus 5 was released on 2017 with Nougat. https://www.xataka.com/analisis/onep...-gama-mas-alta (I know it´s in spanish but perfectly readable in tab specs)

It´s not possible as far as I know to flash an Android version lower than the Android version that came with device out of the box.

Not even you´re wanting an unsafe/risky downgrade but a chimera and I´m not referring to mithology.

Here you have a list rom collection and how to flash a stock rom onto your device https://www.getdroidtips.com/oneplus-5-stock-firmware/ but only a member that own this device can sure you that downgrading it you won´t brick it.

As a side note Xposed has some development working as a module inside Magisk environment and I think that the old Xposed development as in the old days is deprecated/outdated.

What device, what Android version? Everything after and including Marshmallow is encrypted by default. It was made mandatory to have full disk encryption by Google since then.

Hi guys,

I have a simple question, is Mozilla.net the same thing as Mozilla.org ? Is mozilla.net safe ?

I'm using F-droid at the moment, so i downloaded FFupdater and this app is looking here to download firefox : https://download-installer.cdn.mozil...bile/releases/
But F-droid tells me that FFupdater will look over there : https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/mobi...-api-16/multi/

Is everything ok about this ?
I'm sorry to ask such a stupid question, thank you guys ! <3[COLOR="Silver"]

It's best to install Firefox from Mozilla.org or from the PlayStore. Any other location is potentially malicious.

Hi, thanks for the answer !

I found this page on Mozilla.org "https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/android/all/" to download Firefox APKs for Android. When you click on the download link, you can see the source, it's from Mozilla.net, so i guess they own both sites .net and .org, so i guess it's safe.

FFupdater from F-droid must be safe too then.
