OrangeFox Recovery is one of the most popular custom recoveries, with amazing additional features, fixes and a host of supported devices.
- Warnings :
Your warranty is now void, or not... (i have no idea bruh) ・ I'm not responsible for bricked devices, thermonuclear war or alarm app fails. ・ If it's your first time or you're unexperienced with flashing ROMS, please do some search before flashing! ・ YOU are choosing to make these modifications, you're the only responsible guy for messing up if you do so.
- Informations :

- Was built on the 21st of July 2022.
- Maintained by kota. (me)
- Latest R12.1 Sources.
- Used Kernel : Here!

- What's broken ?


- Flashlight Option (i forgot to remove it)
- Vibration (It is very weird, you can turn it off for now)

- Installation Guides :


- Notes :
A glitch may happen where booting it via fastboot makes touch doesn't work sometimes.
To fix that, i also provided a flashable zip via sideloading (tested on TWRP) that directly installs it.


- First way to install : (Casual way, if touch works okay | .img )

1 · Reboot into bootloader and boot OrangeFox by using this command : fastboot boot OrangeFox.img 2 · Once the Recovery boots up, go to 4th menu (3 lines), and on it, click "More". 3 · Then click More, and Flash Current OrangeFox Recovery, then swipe and reboot!

- Second way : (More tricky, but always works out fine | .zip )

1 · Reboot into Recovery Mode with TWRP installed. 2 · Prepare an ADB Session on your PC and add to it the .zip version of OrangeFox. 3 · Get into Sideload Mode and do this command on adb : adb sideload OrangeFox_Name_Example.zip

- You're now done with flashing!

- Download Links :

First method | .img : Click me!
Second Method | .zip : Here!

- End :


Well, here it is! Real working OrangeFox for Mi 11.
At first it was just a random idea that went threw my head two month ago.
Now it's a real thing, it was really time consuming and head scratching but it was all worth it!


Enjoy and have a nice day!

Please note!

For the second flashing method, TWRP isn't really "required", it's more to assure that your recovery let's you sideload any unsigned packages. You should be able to flash from some recoveries such as Pixel Experience and ArrowOS recovery.

As for unsupported ones such as CherishOS, RiceDroid, etc... They'll probably throw an Error 21 when trying to sideload any unsigned packages. (in this case, Orangefox but could also be Magisk) For them, simply use TWRP.

Appreciate the great work! 🔥

Is this recovery working fine for A12 custom roms? (In terms of data/internal storage decryption)

Yup it works, at least with Pixel Experience it works. You just have to type in your code because the partition is encrypted
Great, currently I'm running Evolution X with newest TWRP and there the recovery has problems with decrypting the internal storage - no matter what I try. I think it was not made for Android 12. https://wiki.orangefox.tech/en/guides/encryption Android 12 Custom Recoveries

What code do you mean to decrypt the partition? - Thanks for your response

The code to decrypt the partition is the same you had to put in to lock your phone. Say you have a pin code of 3926, just type 3926 to unlock the score from orangeFox

    Does it recognize and mount USB OTG? So I can do backups to USB storage?
    Not yet because of the used kernel in pre-release, the next version will probably support ExFat USB OTG.

    Excellent, working perfectly!
    (other than vibration, which is very weird indeed!)
    Hoping you will continue your great work, and build for A13... 👌
    Yep, A13 is coming soon...

    With A13 decryption support, fix trial to vibration, removal of flashligght button, base on latest sekaiacg TWRP and much better holepunch handle!
