So far, I have been using MIUI with all my successive Xiaomi devices.
But on the last versions of MIUI, Xiaomi introduced a superbly stupid limitation in their quest to mimic Apple.
And that is : it is impossible to use gestures with a launcher other than their own MIUI Launcher (which I really do not like).
There was a workaround for that but that does not seem to work anymore.
So I went searching for a ROM not based on MIUI and found this.
After several tries, I was able to get this to boot (probably not working because I had not installed MIUI Stable).
I have been so used to MIUI lately that I did not remember what a custom ROM looks like.
Man, is that a change.
Of course I miss some of Xiaomi features like the themes or the ability to customize AOD to your liking.
But for the rest ? Nothing to regret...
There's one question i have though. It concerns the camera. I noticed in camera settings that resolution can be set to 27MPix max when the hardware is capable of 108MPix.
It's not something I will use on a daily basis (and even then not sure I'd notice the difference between 108 and 27) but would like to know if that is normal or if I did/understand something wrong.
Hi,For Camera you can using Google Camera Port from Wichaya 1.4, and in addition ANX 202 (MIUI Camera Port) flashable Magisk zip
- Google Camera is good for pictures, all working fine
- ANX Camera (only 202 working is great for video, mode portrait & panorama don't work (i advise to hide them from settings)
Flashed few days a go....no issue with drain....if ya have magisk install betterbattery stats from google play and track it down with the app
I realized in your telegram that other Xiaomi have this rom with android 12, so I would like to know if android 12 is on the way for this device? To have it AOSP without MIUI would be fantastic, this rom works incredible, it has some bugs when blocking the screen, or sometimes the glance screen works as it pleases, but from there on out everything works correctly one or another visual bug, I definitely love it and I hope soon you can bring us android 12 under this rom for the XIAOMI MI 11. A hug and thank you very much !!!
found out the always on screen display is the culprit...
Flash boot img through fastboot..then boot recovery and inside recovery format data...then sideload with abd..... Thats itHi guys. I have an issue. I have the EvolutionX on my Mi11 but because they finished the developing I wanted to swap to DerpFestOS. So my problem is I formated data and tried to flash over Lineage recovery and it does till 47% how the instruction says but when I reboot the system always the EvolutionX starts. What do you think to do?
Hi Hunteres. That is exactly what I've done couple of times and that is why asking any other way to solve this.
Yes, it does everything properly that is the problem. It wipes everyting (it says on the screen) so it should wipe the previous Rom too but always boot back to the EvolutionX. This is my question. How to wipe and flash the new Rom differently. Or if I try to flash back to original MIUI 12.5 and from that flash to DerpFestOS?
Did you have any errors on the mobile screen? Or it shows flashed successful steps 2/2 ?Yes, it does everything properly that is the problem.
