Hello;

I want to ask who better knows than me if I can upgrade Android 6.0 which I have on my Redmi 4 Prime to a stable version of Android 11 or 12, the picture is attached of my current firmware and versions, as with the current version am losing some apps which I stopped supporting Android 6.0.
Thank you so much for your attention and participation.

Best Regards

I don't think that's possible. The best you could do is to try and modify the apps or force them to run, but that's very hit and miss.

HHi ,

I've installed,yesterday , HAVOC 4.9 based to Android 11.
In the last 2 years i've used HAVOC 3.12 found here in XDA and based to Android 10

Both of them are great with my Redmi 4 Prime (MARKW)....remember to patch audio with sound fix that find online

best regard

Hello; I would appreciate if you send me the step-by-step guide to upgrade as I am not an expert with that.
Also I found that many are talking that the upgrade is suitable only for "MARKW" and I do not know what is that, I am not sure my redmi 4 prime is "MARKW"

Many thanks in advance,

I also tried to follow up your advice but when pressing "power button with volume down key" the mobile boot on "Fastboot" and then it gets stuck on this "fast boot" screen.
To enter recovery you must pres power button + volumeup+volume down in the same time.You have to learn some things .Read first,you have all this on xda and internet.Treble twrp has wipe and flash vendor option.

Thanks all o.k now, I used your ROM, but when booting it asks for a password, what is it, I appreciate your prompt reply dear.

Hello @marduj5, hope you are fine and doing well, I faced problems with receiving and sending calls with the ROM you attached here like I am not reachable from time to time also I can not make some times a call. so I was searching for a more stable ROM and I found "Havoc 4.9" I flashed it, but I am missing Mi cloud synchronization and the MARKW seems as not recognized as a Xiaomi mobile phone, how can I solve that? which reflects restoring the SMS and the call history and other backups I used to do with my MARKW.
Thanks in advance for your advice
