I'm using GSI PixelExperience_arm64-ab-vndklite-12.0-20220208-UNOFFICIAL. It's really working good and it's my daily driver.
The missing auto brightness could be fixed with the Velis Autobrightness App. It passes SafteyNet, too
DT2W is not working, but I use GravityScreen App instead.
It's a lot of work if you switch from MIUI to GSI, but it's worth it.

I've tested all other GSi builds, and I had only trouble. I stick with PixelExperience
please tell me settings for vellis app and gravity sensor app.thanks in adv

Hey, I have tried flashing my GSI ROM but got an error after attempting these two commands :
./fastboot erase system
./fastboot flash system Gsi.img
The "system" partition could not be found and after reading some of your comments I figured I had to reboot into fastbootd and not fastboot. Therefore I rebooted my phone but I am now stuck into a bootloop without being able to reach fastboot whatsoever. Holding down the volume down key does not seem to have any effect.

A few more details:
- adb does not detect my device anymore.
- I was previously on a stock ROM.
- I only managed to flash the vbmeta.img before the bootloop happened.
- Upon holding the volume up button, my phone briefly connects to my PC (for about 2 seconds) then disconnects and restarts again.

What could I do to be able to reach fastboot and flash the stock ROM again?

Thanks for reading

How to install a gsi onto your Mi 11t > Pro
This will wipe your phone and I'm not responsible for any bricked device's.
you can always go back to stock and try again.


Clean install suggested!

1.0 Start with downloading things
Latest Platformtools Here
stock miui 13 Here fastboot rom I use EEA 13.0.8.0
Gsi of choosing Here or get latest gsis from Telegram
vbmeta miui13 from you fastboot rom.

If you choose to install magisk use this module to help hinding from security apps
and patch one your self.
safetynet

1.1 Start the process
Start with flashing stock 13 on your mi11tpro.

reboot to fastboot (shutdown phone then hold power and voldown till you see fastboot)

unzip the platform tools and move your gsi, vbmeta and magisk.img(if needed) to the folder
in the platform tools folder open a terminal.

unzip the stock miui 13 .tgz until you get the folder with the flash_all.bat file
copy flash_all.bat and images to your fastboot folder
Connect your phone to your pc then
launch the flash_all file and let your phone boot

Reboot to fastboot

1.2 Flash gsi
./fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img(stock or google) ./fastboot erase system ./fastboot flash system Gsi.img ./fastboot reboot recovery

factory reset the phone here
reboot to system and your done.

1.3 Flash magisk
how to patch own boot.img
extract boot.img from the stock rom
copy over to working phone with magisk app installed
open magisk and select install / select file to patch
select your boot.img
then copy your patched boot.img to your fastboot folder

Boot prepatched image.
./fastboot boot Patchedboot.img t
when booted open magisk app/install the apk from github.
cancel the first message if you get any and just click install, direct install.
then just reboot and you have root.

And your done

2.0 Extra's and fixes
Some times if you reboot it get stock to fix this use the google vbmeta

go to settings/ phh teble settings and enable these settings

qualcomm features/disable soundvolume effects &&
use alternate audio policy --fixes audio bugs
xiaomi features/enable dr2w --double toch to wake
misc features/force fps/120hz --( Only if you want 120hz)
ims features/install ims apk for qualcomm vendor --Makes sms work
than reboot to apply fixes

volume steps to high fix Here Not needed for all gsi's
Get lSpeed to improve battery and performance
Get better camera use Gcam I use MTSL_Snapcam 7.1 with antykat_v13


Thanks to phhusson, bhammler,

i think its possible , for sure you can check compatibilty - install this application Treble Check and you will get answer if Yes/NO

pixel experience 13 works with Xiaomi 11T you must use arm64 ab release. the onliest problem is camera application. the original xiaomi camera apk is not working with pixel experience 13. you must find a proper gcam. if you have any suggestions about gcam, please share with me.

5. fastboot reboot fastboot
6. fastboot flash system system-xxxx.img
6bis. If fastboot tells you there isn't enough place, do fastboot delete-logical-partition product, fastboot delete-logical-partition product_a, fastboot delete-logical-partition product_b and run the fastboot flash command again
7. On your phone, the screen should have a button "go back to recovery", select it, then select "factory reset / wipe data"
8. Reboot and enjoy

edt: you can get more detail

extract the rom to adb folder
open developer menu
enable usb debug
connect your phone and give permission to your pc from phone
adb reboot fasboot
after your phone open
fastboot erase system_a
fastboot erase system_b
fastboot flash system.img

    Finally I found a better and perfect working solution:

    Pixel Experince SLIM works, because its under 3 GB. Here are my new steps:

    1. fastboot flash_all vili_global_images_V12.5.10.0.RKDMIXM_20211211.0000.00_11.0_global

    2. let it reboot to the setup screen and turn it off

    3. fastboot boot twrp.img (no need to install)

    4. update through twrp to miui_VILIGlobal_V13.0.1.0.SKDMIXM_e7e8f0ef90_12.0.zip

    5. it shows some errors, but it's still booting up to the setup screen. Turn off

    6. From now on: everything in FastbootD (fastboot reboot fastboot)

    7. fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img (see attached extracted vbmeta from MIUI 13)

    8. fastboot erase system

    9. fastboot flash system PixelExperience_arm64-ab-slim-12.0-20220221-UNOFFICIAL.img

    10. fastboot reboot recovery

    11. wipe data in Mi Recovery

    12. reboot and done

    13. for magisk you will find attached the pachted boot image from MIUI 13, and the extracted vbmeta. I flashed magisk in regular fastboot mode. Don't know if thats right, but it's working.
    P.S. everything was flashed into slot_b (didn't change anything)


    Now the screen brightness works, d2tw is working and it passes safetynet

    Extra's and fixes
    Some times if you reboot it get stock to fix this use the google vbmeta

    go to settings/ phh teble settings and enable these settings
    qualcomm features/disable soundvolume effects
    xiaomi features/enable dr2w
    misc features/disable audio effects
    misc features/force fps/120hz ( Only if you want 120hz)
    ims features/install ims apk for qualcomm vendor
    than reboot to apply fixes
    You can send those settings to be applied automatically for all 11T Pro owners to https://github.com/phhusson/treble_presets
