Hey if you guys are looking for a good way to keep the phone cool while gaming this magnetic cooling fan and cooling plate is a nice option! The cooling plate increases the cooling area and reaches the area of the CPU and the plate just sticks to the phone without using glue with a sticky silicone surface that can be washed regularly. I've tried several cooling fans and this one is the best one delivering nice cooling performance with the overclocking mode and sits nicely on the back of the phone without obstructing the buttons on the sides.

Magnetic Cooling Fan:

ISK 3,097 18%OFF | PLEXTONE Gaming Cooler EX1 FunCooler Mobile Phone Cooling Fan Hurricane Turbofan Cooler Portable Magnetic Cooler Fan Adjustable

Cooling Plate:

ISK 167 42%OFF | Cell Phone Radiator Sticker Magnetic Suction Cooling Composite Soaking Plate Washable Mobile Phone Cooler Magnetic Sticker

It's a very cheap way to increase the performance of the phone greatly because overheating is the biggest problem of performance issues when it comes to gaming. I was able to keep running smoothly at the highest settings in Call of Duty and Rush Rally 3, didn't matter how long I played, the performance stayed high the entire time! Pretty pleased with that result as without the cooling fan and the cooling plate the phone always started to throttle the CPU greatly reducing to really low frequencies so the performance got really bad really fast!

But my phone is k50 Chinese version and came with a global version which opened the boatloader, can I close the boatloader with the global version on it!! Cause some one warned me to lock the boatloader on the global version and if i can't locl is there any way to run bank apps while boatloader is unlocked??
If you're trying to root the phone and install TWRP then this way is the easiest and best one:

Download the Mi Unlock Tool. Extract the zip file. Run the program and it will ask to download the latest version that has the correct Fastboot Driver Installer. Download it and unzip the file.

Boot the phone into fastboot mode, run the driver installer and connect the phone to the computer, that will update the drivers.

Download the latest TWRP file here and move it to the Mi Unlock Tool folder and rename it to twrp.img: https://sourceforge.net/projects/recovery-for-xiaomi-devices/

Run the fastboot command: fastboot boot TWRP.img to boot into the TWRP Recovery. Go to the Advanced section in TWRP and choose Flash Current TWRP to install TWRP to the phone. Reboot the phone into Recovery Mode. Go back to the Advanced section a choose Install Magisk to root the phone. To ensure the phone boots properly you should format the data before rebooting the phone into the system. You can try rebooting the phone without formatting the data and see if it boots into the system without problems, if you run into boot loops then just hold the power button and the volume up button to boot into recovery mode and format the data with TWRP. With the latest TWRP you can set to automatically flash TWRP and Magisk after every ROM update. But always use TWRP to flash the ROM updates.

I highly recommend the Fox Magisk Module Manager to get all the Magisk Modules:


Oh yes to run bank apps, just enable Enforce DenyList in Magisk and enter the Configure DenyList, the you find the bank app and enable all the items. That should disable the root/bootloader detection of the bank app so you can use it

I hope this guide works for you! 🙂

This phone comes with the bootloader unlocked, I ran the fastboot bootloader lock command. Now it has been closed and it is impossible for me to revive it. Can anyone help me? With the Chinese ROM it stays in destroyed system, and with the global ROM it goes straight to recovery and restarts. Any suggestions?

Me personally would go for EU. More up to date as well based on the china ROM. Miui 14 atm is running so good on mine but I would look at forums to see if you would be happen with it.

This is genius! A multi-layer cooling case design for the POCO F4 GT and you can attach a magnetic cooling fan to maximize the cooling performance! The circuit version has the entire back made of aluminum along with copper and graphite layers for maximum cooling performance. It also works as a protective case so the phone is safe with you on the go.

Here you can buy the cooling case, just pick the POCO F4 GT Circuit version:

-612576720-1954231464.jpg


Then I highly recommend this magnetic cooling fan that has 17 turbofan fins for 150% increased cooling efficiency. It also has 2 cooling modes, the second one with the blue light is an overclocked one for the best cooling performance.

Try the latest TWRP I posted on this thread and use the fastboot boot TWRP.img (rename the TWRP file to TWRP.img) or just move the TWRP file into the CMD window. Just remember to have the TWRP file in the same folder as the fastboot files. Then you can move the global ROM to the phone and flash it, then remember to go to the advanced section in TRWP and run the flash current TWRP so you won't loose the custom recovery. You can also install Magisk in the advanced section.

    I highly recommend the Kiwi browser, it is highly customizable and it supports Chrome Extensions.

    There are 3 extensions that are a must have:

    Ublock Origin - Blocks totally ads, cleans up the leftover from the ads. It also bypasses AdBlock detection.

    Touch VPN - Easy Fast & Free VPN with extra tracking preventions.

    Full Screen Button - Properly fill the screen with the webpage.
