i didn’t find any issues while switching Between Roms..Which Xiomi ROM should I have before flashing?
In DerpFest thread I have found "ROM Firmware Required: 10.0.13.0/10.0.18.0/18.104.22.168/22.214.171.124" .
Will the Arrow 12 ROM also work on 126.96.36.199? Which is the latest official available?
I am asking because about a year ago I was flashing the Arrow ROM 12 and 10.0.13.0 was the only one that allowed this ROM to start.
I am going to buy a used A2 lite today for my son and flash Arrow on it. Are there any up-to-date instructions on how to do that?
Mine button switches are still new since April 2019 ,the phone doesn't even have a scratch, and the battery is still great.I bought the 4/64 blue variant yesterday and today did these steps:
! Warning. All data will be permanently erased, those steps are for a phone that was bought as a used one and I don't care about the data of the previous owner but if you are updating your private phone backup everything before!
1. Downloaded the latest official Android from Xiaomi as the phone was still on Android 9 and the automatic update said that there are no updates.
Go to https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/miui/daisy/stable/V188.8.131.52.QDLMIXM/ and download fastboot .tar format, unpack it with 7-Zip so you have a folder with .bat and .sh files inside.
2. Downloaded MiFlash20200314, now I found the newest here https://androidmtk.com/download-xiaomi-mi-flash-tool but with 20200314 all went well.
3. Done bootloader unlock https://en.gizchina.it/2018/10/xiaomi-mi-a2-lite-bootloader-twrp-root-magisk/
4. Using MiFlash I have flashed V184.108.40.206.QDLMIXM, select "Clean All" in right down corner otherwise bootloader will be locked. It will take up to 10 minutes be patient.
5. Installed TWRP https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/official-recovery-twrp-for-daisy.3855396/
6. Copy Arrow-v12.1-daisy-OFFICIAL-20221117-GAPPS.zip to SDcard
7. Reboot to TWRP with power + volume up. Then Wipe -> format data -> choose install, choose zip and wait.
8. First boot will take about 3 minutes if it takes significantly longer time something went wrong. You can always restart the process from step 4.
Currently, that phone can be bought very cheap about ~USD 60-70 (in Poland) from second hand in perfect condition and with Android 12 it is a great phone for basic usage. Still, there are batteries and other serviceable parts available, like button switches which fail after about 4 years. It is easy to open back (many tutorials on youtube) and replace by yourself those parts.
