Hey bro, I meet the same problem, maybe you use the SP Flash Tool in zip from the article.
Try to redownload SP Flash tool from official site and use it, I success to flash the lastest MIUI global rom after using the redownload SP Tool.

Is there really no other solution than having to reset your device every time you update it? That sounds really inconvenient :/

the Global Miui link in the Changelog is the very one I used before flashing 0824, which also solved the bootloop.
When I saw the Global Miui is the same I USED JUST Before this update, I thought I'm good.
Well...lesson truely learned, now forget the Download Mode, the screen wont even lit up

It does, it detects when the device can be used even if the screen is black and then you can flash. It took me a couple of times to get past this soft brick. In the end I used this one that I think it is similar:

would you say its worth updating to this rom as a daily driver? i just used my old redmi note 5 pro with pe and man its so much better than miui, i completely forgot what i was missing lol. from what i have read, front camera is finally working but the back camera now only has 16mp, and the camera usually is very good... i would not like missing out on the good camera. so would you still wait a bit until updating?

Yes, I recommend it. With root or not, depending on your needs. For proper camera download Gcamator from Play Store and run it. It will search and install the best GCam for your setup.

awesome, thanks for the reply. so ill get more than the 16mp simply by using another camera app? is only the native app not working?
do i need to take precautions bc of anti rollback (i think it was anti rollback?!)? i remember i had to do some specific steps last time i installed pe on this phone.. or has it become really this simple since miui 12.5? thanks in advance!

Big Big thx for this video. In description there are good links, and the video is really easy to understand. The only thing missing is the way to indicate 'path' for python. Need an other vid to do that.
Really thx, now i had PE 0916 and i like it.

    I've upgraded to the latest version (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...xperience-official-aosp.4196041/post-85645175) from the May/2021 build (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...xperience-official-aosp.4196041/post-85013773) and here is my quick review.
    Mainly due to SafetyNet failing on the May/2021 build I decided to flash the September/2021 release.

    I followed the installation guide and it went flawlessly. No bricking and the system booted right away.
    I did experiment using BRP3.5.2v3.0-DarkMode-twrp.zip and my internal storage was encrypted. After flashing the recommended TWRP my internal storage was readable again.

    The Good:
    • SafetyNet has been fixed out of the box (no need to install anything externally), even if you're rooted as I am (Magisk v23.0);
    • Night Light is working properly;
    • OAndBackupX managed to restore all my applications + data;
    • Internal Storage is encrypted (protects your Internal Storage against unauthorized access from things like device theft);
    • Widevine L1 is working out of the box (I don't use NetFlix but it should work).

    The Bad:
    • You have to format data to install this latest version, so be sure to make your application backups prior to your installation;
    • The battery drain bug is still present;
    • The back camera can only go up to 16MP.

    What bothers me most is the battery drain bug still being present. I wonder if this will ever be fixed since it doesn't seem to be a priority. I hope it's fixed soon because with the May/2021 release I was getting around five days of battery (from a 80% charge). Now it barely reaches three two days (from a 80% charge). :unsure:

    Compass.

    I was using and old version of the rom and now I'm experiencing an huge battery drain with this version. 10hrs of display on May, now 5.5hrs.

    I installed GSam and this is the result for today:

    I think that Ambient light wakelocks are caused by the "Prevent accidental wake-up" setting. (I don't understand if that drains the battery or not).

    Unrelated to this problem, could you tell me if Pixel Ambient Services app is installed by default in this rom? Thanks
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...xperience-official-aosp.4196041/post-85586743

    Yeah, the battery drain bug approximately halves the idle battery life.

    The issue I opened on GitHub got closed without a fix. Go figure. 🤷‍♂️

    There is no workaround and I don't expect it to be fixed in Pixel Experience anymore. Perhaps it's time to switch to another Custom ROM It's useless to switch to another Custom ROM based on MIUI 12.5.x that hasn't fixed it.

    I don't have "Pixel Ambient Services" on my phone, so it isn't installed by default.
