 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Do not report bugs to Xiaomi, this is a NON official MIUI rom!

Do not report bugs here if you have not installed step by step according installation instructions!

Downloads

ROM:https://sourceforge.net/projects/epic-rom/files/MiA1

Fix for stock MIUI portrait mode: if you are going to use mi account, login into it before install this fix. You can find on app ota_updates/addons


Installation

If you are on stock Pie do not install this Rom, otherwise you can brick your phone. See how to downgrade to stock oreo.

Coming from any rom

1-Back up all your data including efs
2-Wipe data and dalvik/Art
3-Flash Rom zip. first boot takes about 15-20 minutes
4-When system boots up, wait 5 minutes to do initial configuration
5-You will feel system "laguiss" during initial setup, after you complete, wait 5 minutes more and reboot
6-Flash MIUI portrait fix ONLY after log into your Mi account ( skip thius step if you do not use Mi account)
Enjoy MIUI

If system does not boot after 25 minutes:
Fastboot flash userdata with command
Code:
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
download userdata img from --->https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=746163614322263787
Reboot to recovery
Flash MIUI ROM
Continue from step 4
If your storage is less than normal, fastboot flash userdata again and reboot


PD: ota service are not working properly due to a/b partition so, if you download from ota you should install manually once the app reboot to recovery, which means you have to install downloaded rom from internal sd card/OTA_updates folder

Xiaomi.eu for base rom used, thanks guys

F.A.Q

Google camera is not working?
Enable hal3 via magisk module or find build.prop line "#persist.camera.HAL3.enabled 1" and delete "#". Reboot.

Is required some specific firmware?
Rom is built in firmware from stock november

How to back to stock?
Restore your TWRP backup

Can I install a custom kernel?
You can install oreo kernels which are suitable for stock rom

When do you update the rom?
When we have free time and I feel like doing it. Please don t ask for ETAs

Can you add x or y feature to the rom? Can you port from x miui rom?
No [emoji14]

VOLTE works?
Yes

Don't ask for porting question, just see old thread, ok?

Thank you so much for your hardwork. MIUI epic rom has been my daily rom since Nougat.
Anyway, I have problem with the slow download link from SourceForge.net, get only around 100KB/s. Any chance for a mirror?

Use 3rd Party Downloader Application (recommended : IDM for Android and Internet Download Manager (i know its not free, but have 30 days trial) for Windows)
Close the page if the download is locked and handled by that 3rd Party Download App
enjoy high speed

To Anyone have 16GB storage issue
- Flash the rom first, no matter what userdata are you using
- complete the setup
- Reboot to Fastboot your device (Hold power button > Reboot > Bootloader)
- if you have stock tissot userdata, follow this
1. open fastboot rom (folder, make sure you're already extract the zip and zip)(make sure you have download that)
2. open images folder, then find userdata
3. move that to ADB Installation File
4. type this > fastboot flash userdata userdata.img < (just type the fastboot flash userdata userdata.img)
5. Reboot, by typing fastboot reboot
6. check that, if still not match with your device variant (ex : shows 32GB, but your device is 64GB variant), reflash again

- if you have Mi 5X Userdata, follow steps number 4,5,6 but change the userdata file with your own Mi 5X Userdata

    Iam About to open a new Thread with a actual Miui version´s from UK.

    Update 8.12.7:

    * Fixed FM radio
    * Fixed greenish camera on third party apps
    * Removed Mi sound enhacer menu

    Check first message for updating instructions

    PD: check FAQ for google camera users. You have to add hal3 support but as a side effect, third party cameras would be greenish or innacurate.
