Hi, guys,
there's a new release for you ;)

the changelog is in the second post, i've put 2 changelogs because since the 07/04 release (V4.3) you need to clean flash (because we've changed to Android 12.1)
if you want to do dirty flash is at your own risk and do not report BUGS

differently from the version of 07/04 (V4.3) to the version of today 29/04 (V4.4) you can also do dirty flash.

Logically if you are on a version prior to V4.3 and want to flash directly to V4.4 you have to do cleanflash.

I hope everything is clear

As always, you can find the flash guide in the DEVICE CHANGELOG.

Enjoy the PEX

Hey everyone,
The ROM is great and smooth. Its Google play certified and Google pay passes even with magisk - but I have 2 setbacks:
The FOD when locked sometimes doesn't work It's quite an intermittent problem - around 50% of the time it works. To combat this I tried to double tap to wake but that doesn't work either. I did see an option in snowhouse to make FOD work all the time but its still problematic. It unlocks well though.
Is there anything I need to download to get it working well. Maybe a kernel? Is it possible to get raise to wake like in miui by any chance because when the lock screen is shown, the fingerprint does its job and unlocks all the time. Let me know if anyone has encountered these issues and if there are any workarounds please!
Edit: After flashing the Rom again, double tap started working but FOD is still a bit problematic

Screen off FOD NEVER works well on A12. Raise to wake should be in Display settings, at the bottom option with whatever name it is, click it and you'll see the inside

First and foremost, thank you for the update, the new quick tile options are game changers.

Sadly, I've encountered an irritating bug/problem after the update, which pushes almost everything on the statusbar to the top. Here's a picture:

The only thing which stayed in the correct place is the little green indicator dot next to the battery gauge. I already tried every possible setting, and even clean flashed the ROM, but the issue persists right from the welcome screen after the first boot.

Here's how it used to look like before the update:

Using this rom about 2 months. Perfect rom without bug. Who says it not work fine its beacause you didnt use the right firmware or the right recovery. Junp in the telegram group e follow the simple guide to flash it. Please stop to say wrong about this rom beacause it s the only fully working A12 rom for our device. Peace and love.

Well, even if you tell you are a noob, there is infinite levels of noobness one can really be. I just did it yesterday so I have it fresh on my head.

Here is my guide assuming you are kind of a somewhat streetwise noob. (Sorry, don`t have the talent nor patience to do it for a complete noob).

1. Download
- The latest stable firmware for your device (mine is a CN device, yours may differ): fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAEL_V12.5.6.0.RFKCNXM_f5fe3b4a6f_11.0.zip​
- The latest TWRP: twrp-3.6.1_9-0-raphael.img​
- Magisk-v25.1.apk (and rename it to Magisk-v25.1.zip)​
- ANXCameraUnity_185R.SaltyIntelligentPlainsqueaker.zip (if you don`t like ANX, just skip it)​
- 1OSS.DFE.zip​
- The ROM: PixelExtended_raphael-12.1-20220610-1454-OFFICIAL.zip (obviously)​
2. Disable any screen lock you may have. Certify that your google account info and any data on the phone is backed/synched up.
3. Boot on fastboot (turn off the device, and turn on again while pressing volume -)
4. Plug the phone on the computer (one with Fastboot and ADB installed on it)
5. Rename the twrp file to twrp.img for simplicity sake.
6. On the computer run these commands:
- fastboot flash recovery twrp.img (should flash the damn twrp to recovery... but on my phone it doesn`t ever stick ffs)​
- fastboot boot twrp.img​
7. If all goes well, the phone will boot into TWRP recovery.
8. Do a wipe
9. Format Data
10. Reboot... and try to enter Recovery by pressing Power and Vol +. If it doesn`t work, simply repeat steps 3 to 7
11. Go to Advanced and Choose ADB Sideload. Check both wipe boxes and swipe right.
12. On the computer run these command:
- adb sideload fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAEL_V12.5.6.0.RFKCNXM_f5fe3b4a6f_11.0.zip​
13. Once finished, go back to the ADB Sideload page and select it again.
14. Repeat the sideload sequence as in steps 11 to 13 for those files:
- PixelExtended_raphael-12.1-20220610-1454-OFFICIAL.zip​
- Magisk-v25.1.zip​
- ANXCameraUnity_185R.SaltyIntelligentPlainsqueaker.zip​
- 1OSS.DFE.zip​
15. After finishing, DFE will need you to do some steps to configure buttons (to be able to answer some questions). After that it will ask if you want to disable cota (answer no) and if you want to force disable encryption (answer yes)
15. Format Data once again
16. Reboot.

I hope it is clear enough, as it is.
Some people might do it differently... but those steps netted a complete success on the first try in my case.

How is the battery life on this rom?
Reading Pixel Experience (plus, they seem to have troubles with drain.

Since I just crashed m installation, I am now thinking about upgrading to A11 or A12 (from A10). But only if A12 is not "experimental". Afaik the kernel sources for A12 are not released yet by xiaomi?

Did you know, the windows cmd features drag and drop. Just drag the .img to the cmd window and the path will automatically be inserted.

Eg:
Win+R -> CMD -> "adb sideload " -> drag'n'drop -> Enter
Nice to know, but I use Linux... where surprisingly it works also (I didn`t expect that)

Anyway, TWRP permanent flashing is something that doesn`t work me for some months now... so in fact the renaming is more of a desperate attempt of making it finally work somehow than anything else.

Good thing one really doesn`t need TWRP to be properly flashed into recovery to use it.

Had similar problems today ... Can't tell how I finally fixed it.
But I will flash the phone tomorrow again, maybe I get a clue how I managed it to stay.
I definitely tried different ways, maybe even adb sideload while booted into twrp.

Funny: ParanoidA Recovery stayed at the first try.

Having used it for a few days... I would say battery is excellent... the best this thread had so far (of the builds I tested).

I guess we won't have A12 for Raphael. Xiaomi already dropped support... I'm using the latest stable A11 and it works very well for me.

I always hear people claim an AOSP rom doesn't have bugs. Yet they all seem to share the same bugs or flaws MIUI has fixed.
