Anyone experiencing a random boot loop issue? My phone had this issue on stock rom and now with PE. Was fine on PE for about 2 weeks and now is boot looping like stock rom. Any thoughts?

As far as I know the unbrick method will format your data, and there's no way around it.

ok, then i don't wanna unbricking my device, i just want to decrypt data partition, as i thing, updating ROM didn't touch user data part, so in theory all data are in place, but i don't know how to decrypt it....

I'm guessing you mean encrypted in recovery.

Redmi Note 8 Pro
This custom rom is based on global version of MIUI which has Google Dialer and does not support automatic call recorder. Is there anyway to make it based on Indian MIUI version so that it has built in call recorder from MIUI stock rom or is there any way to replace Google Dialer with MIUI stock dialer application to achieve the same?

    I am coming from an August build, the instructions on telegraph state you need to flash the latest MIUI before flashing the ROM.. is this true or can I skip to the TWRP flash step?

    or should I not bother and just wait for Android 12 ROMs
    Flashing the latest MIUI 12.5 for your phone guarantees that you start with a clean state. This helps to avoid issues such as soft/hard bricks. You can skip directly to the TWRP if you know what you're doing (and can make corrections if things go awry).

    There's no ETA on when PE/PE+ A12 will be released. If you're happy with the August build it might be worthwhile waiting. Android 12 is going to give issues to some people (https://www.xda-developers.com/android-12-material-you-lagging/ and https://www.xda-developers.com/android-12-background-app-limitations-major-headache/)

    Hello there,

    Maybe i'm coming up with a newbie question but i couldn't find any answer :D

    @Compass Linux I tried your method of installation. I've my RN8P unlocked, i flashed lastest stable miui ( RGGMIXM) later i flashed twrp-3.5.0 but when i hold volume+ i can't boot into recover it keeps rebooting (i was holding volume+ only)
    I've tried to boot to recovery from fastboot but i got an error (see attachment)
    View attachment 5451555

    I got it working. I've used TWRP from this YouTube guide:

    Well, i've been happy to early :D
    After i flashed .zip and wiped dalvik cache and data my device keeps bootlooping at Redmi logo. I'll go further tommorow.
    Try Format data (Wipe data is difference).
    And next time use correct command to flash recovery.

    I had same issue with battery drain since last week.
    I was running PE+ for several months but just had no time to flash with last MIUI to be able to update PE+ to its last release.
    With no change I did by myself my phone started draining the battery very kickly in few hours.
    Then performed some tests to find root cause and I came to the mobile network which is the root cause.
    Nothing special inside battery usage display. Just found when I disable mobile network battery stopped draining.
    If using wifi issue is not there.
    If doing mobile calls without mobile network activated battery is normal.
    Finally I found PE+ update is always downloading last release which it can't install (due to MIUI incompatibility).
    No option let you disable the last release download. You just see it loop downloading it. Some time a popup notification complains about firmware version too old.

    I finally flashed last MIUI ( and now by battery usage became again normal.
    I'll wait for a while without any custom ROM to see if life is better and probably take time later to choose a new custom ROM or use again PE+ if I find the way to prevent it to download automatically last release (even over mobile network).

    hello I found the solution for this thanks to the telegram group

    "you can go to seetings>apps n notifications>see all apps>3 dots>show system apps>*find system update*" and disable mobile data from there
    TWRP is unable to decrypt the folders and files inside /sdcard after installing PixelExperience.

    It worked fine before (when I was still on MIUI), TWRP would ask me for my PIN to unlock.
    However, now that I have PE, it doesn't even ask for my PIN, and shows all folder and file names (and I assume file contents) as a garbled random mess.

    What I use:

    Things I've tried:
    • Other custom recoveries (including the version from twrp.me, orangeFox..), but those all bootloop.
    • Reflash and setup PixelExperience, once with and another time without setting a PIN
    • Factory Reset (using TWRP)
    • Format Data (in TWRP) and reïnstall PE
    • Repair File System (in TWRP)
    None of these worked, it always resulted in unreadable /sdcard

    Note: I can use the system without issues, its just that I don´t dare to install Magisk now that I cannot disable modules from within the Recovery.
    Please use the correct TWRP: https://telegra.ph/Flashing-PEPPUI-09-09
