You're switching ROMS, so it's recommended that you do a clean flash.

Hello,
Thank you for your answer.
If I understand correctly, I just need to flash the new ROM after wipe.
I keep the same TWRP (3.3.1-0) to do this operation ?
No additional task are required when Evolution X 4.7 is CFW and Pixel Experience is nonCFW ?

    Video Guides:

    TWRP (with encryption fix): https://sourceforge.net/projects/be...3.5.1_10-begonia_UNOFFICIAL_1604.img/download (booting TWRP will show version 3.5.2; works fine)
    If you keep TWRP-3.3.1 you'll probably have issues with encryption. Follow the guides and use the new TWRP to flash things.

    tl;dr: Since you're upgrading to the latest official stable MIUI, the current custom ROM doesn't matter.

    Hello everyone,

    i used this guide : https://wiki.pixelexperience.org/devices/begonia/install/ to flash my redmi note 8 pro (file: PixelExperience_Plus_begonia-11.0-20210514-0310-OFFICIAL.zip). I flashed this specific recovery: https://sourceforge.net/projects/be...3.5.1_10-begonia_UNOFFICIAL_1604.img/download and followed guide to the letter, however, I'm experiencing a lot of applications that are crashing...

    - Mi Fit app is crashing as soon as i login to it
    - CameraMX is crashing as soon as it gets open (i downloaded it to try it since cam app that came with the phone cannot utilize macro cam of redmi note 8 pro, or i cannot find it.)
    - GCam is crashing right after i set permissions
    - My e-bank app is crashing as soon as i try to login to it

    And this is during the first few minutes i tried the ROM, I'm not sure what else is crashing. I though of doing a bug report with logcat presented but link to where to report the bug (per info on website) is not resolving it's name: issuetracker.pixelexperience.org

    Any help where could i file bug report and any suggestions what to do from here..? It would be greatly appreciated :)

    I'm having trouble with installing Magisk after the update. Tried patching the boot image but if I flash it, my phone gets stuck on the logo screen. I'm trying to install version 23, should I use different version?
     
    Yes, the back camera takes blurry pictures. 16MP is the maximum that the back camera can take.

    There are solutions (ANXCam/GCAM) but depending on what you do you'll lose your front camera (I have the new front camera sensor).

    Due to that I'm keeping the default camera software (lucky I don't use the camera much).

    Compass.
    The ANX camera is not working very well, for example I am getting a camera connection error in portrait mode.

    I haven't tried the Google camera because I can't find a stable Google camera.

    And now I've figured out that google assistant doesn't respond to "(ok|hey) google" keyword. Any specific ideas to troubleshoot?
    I've already tried performing another clean flash of this firmware.

    TWRP (with encryption fix): https://sourceforge.net/projects/be...3.5.1_10-begonia_UNOFFICIAL_1604.img/download (booting TWRP will show version 3.5.2; works fine)
    If you keep TWRP-3.3.1 you'll probably have issues with encryption. Follow the guides and use the new TWRP to flash things.

    Is someone able to update the TWRP link in the wiki here?:
    https://wiki.pixelexperience.org/devices/begonia/install/
    Or can anyone suggest an update? Didn't find an option to do that.

    It's fine to just update the TWRP and after that decrypting (and installing PE updates) should work, right?

    Updated from previous version -- microphone no longer works in (regular) phone calls -- but does with e.g. WhatsApp... Any ideas?

    [EDIT] Never mind -- I bit the bullet and formatted everything, clean flashed the latest build (20210514), formatted DATA, and the microphone is working again....

    [EDIT] Too many problems with the May build (Bluetooth not working), so went back to April build...

      Does anyone get random stuttering too often? I have been on this ROM for about a week and it is starting to be very annoying.

      I wanna know if this is common or I should re-flash the ROM
      Yes! I hadn't reported it because I'd assume that if it was happening to other people it would have been addressed in an update. And if not, then my phone would have some issue specifically with it that wouldn't be relevant to anyone else.

      But yeah. Thought I would reply after seeing that as it is getting a bit annoying for me as well.

      First thing, the stuttering / lock-ups have improved since the last update. It was about two update cycles ago when I started to notice this issue. I don't know how it's presenting for you or anyone else of course..
      But, for me. The phone will lock-up on a screen, barely moving for about 20 seconds, and then all of a sudden snap back to working again. This probably happens once an hour for me. It's much more noticeable within the first 20ish minutes of powering on the device, and when there's a load on the RAM so it seems, particularly if a couple of videos are loaded.

      This doesn't happen too often, but I guess the most irritating thing is when I'm listening to YT music or Spotify and all of a sudden the phone starts struggling to keep playing the music. Then for the next several minutes is noticeably jumpy/skippy.

      Sorry about that random info just I threw out there guys. But I thought it may help in possibly identifying the issue if other people are having it.

      So in summary (for me):
      Is most noticeable at start-up and if there's a heavy media load in the background. Causes the entire OS to stutter when it happens (all sounds are affected). Started happening around the stable release of PE Android 11. Has improved since the last update.

      Thank you guys. Appreciate the hard work regardless. :)

      I have also after upgrade to newest version big bugs:
      • Mi Fit App crashing (open and close immedately)
      • Phone Call -> i can't stop call sometimes -> i must reboot phone (very big bug)
      • Phone Call -> Microphone over Bluetooth not working
      • Phone Call -> Volume can't adjust -> always loud
      • Nightlight -> flashing screen/display -> must after reboot every time go to developer settings to put "HW Overlay" on -> Bug solved than....

      All in all to many bugs - i don't understand why nobody can produce a good ROM - always this same problems, and no answers....
      Use the old version until a new update is available.

      Bit lost, not like the old days of CM and the likes im afraid

      Keep getting bootloops upon flashing TWRP (wont go past redmi logo and will just keep rebooting till said point) - went so far as needing to reflash the OEM ROM via miflash tools.

      Ive tried everything and various methods of flashing - ADB CMD and 2 different programs made for the device, the VBM authentication, manually booting into recovery etc NOTHING will boot into TWRP, when it doesnt boot loop i simply get the stock recovery

      Phone is unlocked, bootloader unlocked ofc, and every instruction followed to a T more than once
      What am i doing wrong?
      You need to follow the guide.

      The guide has an older TWRP, so use this one (newer): https://sourceforge.net/projects/be...3.5.1_10-begonia_UNOFFICIAL_1604.img/download
