Xiaomi Mix Fold 2
OMG i'm so confused. So whats the difference betwen CN- Global Module and the Global Lite ? And do I have to install both? Also for context, I'm trying to sync my Samsung Watch 4 and I believe I need to install Global Module for it to work.. but I"m not sure what Global Lite is.
I just installed the Lite version (only) but I didnt switch off MIUI optimiser... not sure whats that for?! Anyway, now i'll try and sync my galaxy 4 watch.

Weirdly now I have the word "Volte" come up in my signal bar. 👍👍

I wouldn't turn off MIUI optimiser on lite version 😂 I did it and got stuck on a boot loop. Gone into safe mode didn't fix it had to wipe data 😭😭. Learning what not to do 😉 this would be my 5th wipe data

Haha .. i've given up on Fold 2 ... and my Samsung Fold 4 is arriving tomorrow. I've had to wipe my phone so many times, and I sitll cant get AA to work ... and most recently, I cant seem to pay on Uber (i use Uber everyday). There's a whole host of other issues as well, fairly trivial individually, but when you put all together ... super annoying. Ultimately, (for me) the benefits of the bigger size phone does not quite outweigh the ease-of-use of the Samsung Fold 4 🥲

Expect to see a new Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 on ebay and gumtree soon. 🥲

I confirm that turning off MIUI optimization while running the light version causes a bootloop that can't be repaired without wiping data. Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.

On Chinese ROMs the HD symbol indicates that VoLTE is enabled, but on global ROMs the HD symbol is replaced by the VoLTE symbol. The CN/Global Lite module globalizes your phone including the physical appearance of its symbols. HD and VoLTE are exactly the same thing, just different symbols are used in China versus the rest of the world.

Thank you for creating the Google Assistant module. Prior to installing the module with Magisk I had installed Google Assistant, but I could only activate voice commands by tapping on its icon. Now that I have installed the module, when I say "Hey Google" or "OK Google" the green microphone icon appears at the top left of my status bar, so I know Google Assistant is 'listening', but when I give it voice commands it doesn't respond. If I tap on the icon and then speak it obeys voice commands, but I could do that before the module. I am rooted with Magisk and have only installed the universal saftey net module, your (full, not the lite CN - Global) module, and your Google Assistant module. I have given the Google app and the Google Assistant app all permissions and unrestricted battery, and have set Google Assistant as the Mix Fold 2's default digital assistant. Am I missing some steps to get Google Assistant to respond to my voice? (I have MIUI optiminzations turned off)

I love my mix 2 I have no issues with it but miss the functionality of android auto and the swipe left from Home Screen for google feed—would you share what site or video you used to root your mix fold 2? I currently found this website and wondered if this is what you used:


Also, is there a module to activate the google feed screen on this phone from Home Screen? Or is that only possible in like global rom phones? (Sorry, super new to all of this so I apologize if I don’t explain myself well).

Other question, since I just thought of it, will rooting my phone factory reset my device including all my on board memory data like photos and videos?

AndroPlus: Thank you very much! I googled "Magisk stock backup does not exist" for hours and none of the articles mentioned that you can just ignore "after restoring stock images" on Xiaomi devices. You are a genius. It worked like a charm!
Does this mean you can update normally and once updated, phone will still be rooted?

I first turned off "automatically install updates" in Developer Settings. Then I went into Settings and clicked on my MIUI 13.1.16 version and it prompted me to check for updates. When it found an update it asked if I wanted to download it and I clicked yes. When it finished downloading it asked me if I wanted to install and I clicked yes. It quickly downloaded a relatively small 1.8 GB incremental update and began to install it and part way through it stopped and said "error installing MIUI ROM update". I went back and checked for update again and again was prompted to download the update. This time it downloaded a much larger 5.4 GB update and when I chose to install it took about twenty minutes to install but finished and then prompted me to reboot. I DID NOT reboot. Instead I opened the Magisk Manager app (I hadn't turned off Magisk or any of its modules) and within the Magisk Manager I chose to "install" Magisk (not 'install Magisk app) and I was then given three choices as to how to install Magisk. I chose "install to inactive slot after OTA"). When this completed within Magisk I was prompted to reboot my phone and it took about five minutes to boot back up (just like it did when I first flashed Magisk) and the phone was then up and running with the update installed and with Magisk still installed and all its modules still installed and active.

Xiaomi will allow OTA updates with root, but apparently only full, not incremental updates. When it first tries to install an incremental update it will fail, but just do it again and this time it downloads the full update and you are good to go.
Sorry just found this! So, everytime there's a new update, this would be the route to installing it?

I decided to create a module sharing thread here.

If Magisk is enabled, all modules will continue to work after the OTA update. (use "Install to Inactive Slot" method)
If Magisk is disabled, the module also loses its effectiveness.

Add official translations from Global ROM​

Since MIUI China ROM doesn't have translations other than English or China-related languages, I created Magisk module to add more languages.
I extracted official translations from MIUI Global ROM.

If there's no official translations, it will be showed in English (like search bar and some options only for China ROM).

This module also enables Google Location History & Nearby Share.

Global ROM Flag Patch​


This Magisk module changes ROM flag to Global.
You can't change region, but some settings and VoLTE icons will become Global version.
Please note Global version has less features than China version, so you can't see some settings like enhanced keyboard.

This module doesn't contain translations.

You can install both translation patch and flag patch.

Please note this module can cause bootloops!

--- If you want to use flag patch with MIUI optimization turned off (optional) ---
Please note if you disabled MIUI optimization, you'll get duplicate Package Installer (MIUI and AOSP) and it will cause bootloop.
Please don't disable MIUI optimization before installing this module, and disable one of the Package Installer to prevent bootloop.

So for installing flag patch module, you need to do:
1. Install above translation patch and reboot
2. Enable MIUI optimization and reboot
3. Install lite module and reboot
4. Disable MIUI optimization
5. Two "Package Installer" app will be available so disable one of them (I recommend non-Xiaomi logo one)
6. Reboot
-------------

If bootloop happens, run this:
adb wait-for-device shell su -c "touch /data/adb/modules/xiaomi-miui-conv-lite/disable;reboot"

Enable Android Auto​


Here's the guide for enabling Android Auto.
You have to uninstall Android Auto first, then install Magisk module, and set permissions in AOSP settings (use "MIUI Hidden Settings" or something)

Enable Google Assistant and hide dialog of Google Photo​


You can activate Google Assistant with this Magisk module.
It also systemize Google Photo app so that you don't need to press Allow when you edit photos/videos.

If my modules are helpful, I appreciate your donation.

Hello can you list out the other side affects for the global Rom flag patch? I understand that enhanced keyboard is one. Thanks! 🙏

I really appreciate these modules, though am sad to report that I am unable to get Android Auto working either. Have the activity running with all permissions, but my car still pretends like nothing is connected.

My fold 2 is on the way from Giztop. Wondering if anyone has tried Xiaomi's Carwith app - a supposed Android Auto developed by Xiaomi.

Android Auto would be my only reason to root as can live with all the other restrictions.

EDIT - from further investigation seems that Carwith is only for head units that will eventually be released on Chinese vehicles. So, root it is :)

Hope you get it figured out! I haven't read of anyone successfully enabling android auto even with root.

If i don't disable miui optimization at all, will i avoid bootloop or it is always a chance with this module?

    Hi you have to unlockbthe bootloader and download the github linkbto magisk in your Phone. For instance i have do'ne yet and patched the boot image of the last rom but i am not sûre how to fastboot thé boot. Img someone should help please ? M'ybadb is only adb seconds ans i cant install platformbtools to put thé boot img the folder..
    After the Bootloader has been unlocked and you have patched the boot image, you shutdown the phone, then press and hold Power and volume down buttons until you see FASTBOOT written on the screen.
    Then you connect it to the PC and you use Fastboot command to flash the image.
    The command is: fastboot flash boot boot.img (or whatever the filename is)
    That flashes the patched Boot image and after that, you just install magisk on the phone (if not already done so.
    that's it

    Please update cn2global module to v13, this may fix AA.

    The native app does not work and i had many issues with it especially with group mms. So i switched to google messages and it works perfect
    I was having issues with both apps. I changed the APN settings around according to a forum post I found on Xiaomi.eu about my specific carrier. Now MMS, group MMS, and RCS are all working flawlessly.

    so with the OTA what steps did you do to install it since you are rooted with Magisk? it sounds like you can just install it normally, even if you are rooted. what did you end up doing, did you turn off magisk at all or anything?
    I first turned off "automatically install updates" in Developer Settings. Then I went into Settings and clicked on my MIUI 13.1.16 version and it prompted me to check for updates. When it found an update it asked if I wanted to download it and I clicked yes. When it finished downloading it asked me if I wanted to install and I clicked yes.
