After owning my Mi A2 for like 2 years, i finally went for a custom ROM, something I'd thought would'nt do since it's Android One based. The emmc memory bug just go on my nerves too much anyway. Well this ROM is amazing, it hangs a lot less on memory related tasks.

However some issues I seem to notice after 2 weeks of use:
  • GPS sometimes (Google Maps) not working, had to reboot to finally make Maps do something. Anyhting i can flash or improve on this?
  • Auto rotate is way too sensitive compared to stock, laying down the phone (flat) on my desk almost always rotates the screen.
  • Having the latest Gcam apk from "the_dice" I took some pictures by a lake this weekend and the quality is quite bad compared to stock cam of Xiaomi. Look at the water details... Also other details like people being 6-10 meter away turn it quite pixelated. Only for this i'd maybe move back to stock and deal with the slow memory bug again :( The camera2probe app says i have Level3 for the Camera2API though?View attachment 5284307
I recommend you the Pixel Extended ROM. I came from Pixel Experience. PEX is much smoother, and there are a lot more customizing options.

Try pixel base ROMs like

Someone who is accustomed to the three-ramp experience will not satisfy the rest of you
Pixel plus UI
Pixel Extended
LineageOs 18.1

Thanks for the suggestions to both of you. LOS18 and Pixel plus UI seem to both have some bugs going on in the comments so I will probably keep an eye out for testing Pixel Extended.

That might solve my first 2 issues (GPS and auto-rotate) but I fail to see what it would improve on the Gcam quality which is a standalone apk using the Camera2API?

Anyone tried the ANXCamera app that can be flashed to have a stock Xiaomi camera app?

    I never installed a custom ROM before.I really need to flash PE on my MI A2 but I don't know how to do it.Can someone help me? My device is still in stock OS.Is there any way to install this ROM without installing TWRP? I have a 64GB Mi A2.

    First you need to unlock your bootloader:
    -Download and Extract Platform-tools
    -Download TWRP for MiA2, and put them into extracted platform-tools folder
    -Download Pixel Experience Rom
    -Download Magisk

    -Go to Settings - About phone and tap Build Number 7 times.
    -Go to Settings, Developer Settings, and enable OEM Unlock and USB Debugging
    -Turn off your phone
    -Press and Hold the Volume - and Power buttons at the same time, until you see Fastboot logo
    -Plug your phone into a usb port on your pc
    -Go to extracted platform-tools folder
    -Shift + Right click - Open Command Promt here
    -Type in these lines one by one:
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    fastboot flashing unlock
    fastboot flashing unlock_critical

    This will wipe your phone and your bootloader will be unlocked.

    After this is done, boot back into Fastboot mode (Volume down +Power)
    -Once again, open a Command Promt in platform-tools folder
    -Type in these:
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    fastboot -w
    fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-5-jasmine_sprout-unofficial.img
    -This will boot TWRP on your phone.
    -From here you can Wipe System, Cache, Dalvik, Data
    -Copy the PE Rom zip and Magisk zip onto your phone
    -Flash PE Rom
    -Go to Wipe - Format Data (Type in yes)
    -Go back to the Home screen
    -Go to Reboot, and select the opposite Slot to where you are on now. If you are on A, tap B and vice versa.
    -Tap on Reboot - Download
    -
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-5-jasmine_sprout-unofficial.img
    -Flash Magisk zip then reboot.

    This is if you don't want TWRP installed. You can simply flash twrp-installer-3.3.1-5-jasmine_sprout-unofficial.zip after flashing the rom, if you want TWRP permanently.

    Hope it helps and extensive enough.

    How to update official roms. really easy

    1- once you get a notification that an update is available, download and install with the system updater but don't reboot
    2- go to Magisk, Downloads, search for "TWRP A/B Retention Script" and install it
    3- on the main Magisk page, click install > install > Install to Inactive Slot (After OTA)
    4- once Magisk finishes, reboot, you will now be on the opposite slot with both Magisk and TWRP installed.
