yes i saw that on telegram. but why is it not updated on this thread.




Because sadly I am not the developer and I cannot post Telegram links here.


I can update manually, as long as any of you guys DM me the link to the Telegram group, so I can join.



@jeryll @olujnap316


Can anyone of you guys provide the Telegram link for me to update the thread more often?

Thanks guys. Made small instructions video for the absolute noobs (me included).

Tools used: https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools

Instructions on adb commands and flashing:

1. Bootloader Unlocked
2. Download the latest Orangefox boot.img from first post and put it into a dedicated folder in your computer.
3. Go to the folder where you have put the Orangefox-file. Now open a command window inside that folder. To do that hold together "Shift + Right click" on any empty white space inside the folder and then select "Open PowerShell Window Here" or "Open Command Window Here" (depends on your pc).
4. Enter fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer
5. Enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot flash recovery OrangeFox-R11.0_6_Alpha-Unofficial-surya.img
(Needs to be exactly as the name of the file, in case developer uploads new version with new name)<<. Attention: Do not restart your device otherwise Xiaomi's original recovery might overwrite Orangefox!
6. After, device will reboot into Oangefox recovery.

Video Tutorial: https://youtu.be/E7fl_02Kgc8

I had also downloaded the latest Magisk zip (not Manager) from here: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases and placed it into the device before flashing Orangefox, so that i flash Magisk directly from recovery (as we left it above), in order to ensure it will not lose Orangefox installation after reboot.
In case it does not automatically reboot, hold +VOL + Power Button in order to reboot into the new orangefox recovery and install magisk zip from there ( do not forget to have it downloaded somewhere on your device before initiating the procedure)


Thanks everyone, especially OP for his contributions! :cool:

    ... Orange recovery, not stable at all as I read here, will let me to flash MAGISK Canary ? Please let me know, I would like to start using my new phone...
    Hm, not stable at all, you say... Really? Then I must be incredible lucky, cos I'm flashing ROMs with A6 version for almost one month and nothing bad happened to me (or my phone :) )... Main thing is to know what you are doing, else bad things can and probably will happen...

    All I can say is you are incredible lucky too, because here is brand new Beta version of Ofox with a lot of fixes, bigger, shinier... found on *elegram and is up to you what will you do... I flashed it already and will test in a few days what works and what not...

    bugs:
    all reboot functions works only on second try (but it works)
    edit: this could be related to your currently flashed fw
    (on 12.0.3 reboot only works on second try, on 12.0.5 it started to work correctly, on the other hand now sorting files in ofox is not remembered anymore :rolleyes:)

    seems brigudav is on fire, so here's new version of OFOX, probably bugfix release, no changelog, but different md5, than yesterday, so redownload please, thanks, this time we also have flashable zip too, enjoy...

    md5 (img): 751933e8d51141f3faca61fecd8a756c
    md5 (zip): 38311773dc6fa006cefe5deae2872503

    - new version of OFOX is here (finally!), many thanks to @brigudav
    - no official changelog yet, but first look tells this:
    -- files sorting is finally remembered between reboots
    -- naming of your external sdcard changed from sdcard1 to external_sd
    -- location name of your existing backups changed (was some numerical value, now is POCO_X3), so you need to relocate your backup files from old directory to POCO_X3 else they will not be visible in this version of OFOX
    - enjoy!

    redownload new version here
