Tired of MIUI , huh?

Well, don't worry , i will explain to you now how to flash a GSI Rom.

GSI (Generic System Images) are Universal Custom ROM's , meant to work on 99% of all available devices.

Do keep in mind however : one wrong move and you brick , and i am not responsable if you do so


WARNING : Since GSI isn't specifically made for Mi 11 , you might encounter bugs.

With that out of the way , let's begin!

Pre-requisites :
1) ADB and Fastboot installed on your PC
2) An ARM64 A/B GSI Rom (Grab whichever one you like) : https://github.com/phhusson/treble_experimentations/wiki/Generic-System-Image-(GSI)-list

IMPORTANT : Make sure the GSI you selected can boot without permissiver!

3) Vbmeta image : get from your fastboot rom
4) Mi 11 with Unlocked bootloader
5) Half a brain

Got all of that? Let's begin!

1) Put your Xiaomi Mi 11 phone into fastboot
2) Type this : "fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta" and then drag and drop your vbmeta.img (this will flash the vbmeta and disable verification)
3) Then , type : "fastboot reboot fastboot" and press enter
4) You should now see "FASTBOOTD" instead of "FASTBOOT" on your screen
5) Now, type : "fastboot flash system" and then drag and drop your GSI .img
6) Type "fastboot reboot recovery"
7) Now, using MIUI Recovery wipe all your data
8) Reboot and pray it works

That's it, you've now escaped MIUI Jail!

For now , the only bug i encountered is FOD not working , but i will test more stuff and update here

Update #1 : Sound is not working

FIX : Enable "Use alternate audio policy" and "disable audio effects" in Phh treble settings

After a lot of testing , i find phhusson's AOSP to be the best.

Update #2 : Don't set brightness lower than 50%, else it bricks

    Hello,
    I created an archive allowing us to flash a gsi rom with ease.

    Here is the procedure for the user.

    The user download his rom (GSI ARM64 A / B)
    and move it to the rom folder (no need to rename the rom because the script scans the folder for installation).

    and once everything is done we double click on the install.bat to proceed with the installation.

    and if driver is missing, no need to search the internet for hours because there is a driver archive

    fastboot (./driver/fastboot)
    fastbootd (./ driver / fastbootd)

    I wanted to know if you could update your post with the archive I created here is the download link of the archive
