Official TWRP thread:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recovery-11-official-teamwin-recovery-project.4374117

Unofficial OrangeFox recovery:
This is in the form of a flashable zip, boot into TWRP first and then install/sideload
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xiaomi-odin/files/OrangeFox-R11.1-Unofficial-odin.zip/download

Installation:
  • Install TWRP and reboot to recovery
  • Either copy zip to internal storage and install OR use adb sideload
  • Format data (wiping is not sufficient, formatting requires you to type "yes")
  • Reboot
Important notes:
  • Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if MIUI was previously installed and device was encrypted.
  • TWRP cannot currently decrypt A12 partitions meaning you can't access your files in recovery mode. This is a TWRP problem, not a ROM bug. If you need to install something, either sideload it or use USB OTG.
  • MIUI 13 firmware is included in ROM zip, no need to flash it seperately.
Other notes:
  • The default camera in these builds is ANX camera. Everything is working (including 108mp mode) apart from HDR/Slowmo video recording.

当前的0517版本,非常棒,没有什么明显bug,系统相当稳定。ANX相机的小问题等后续版本更新即可。

如果有新人刷完这个rom,同为新人的我在此给点续航提升建议:
刷完后:
1. 修改wifi的检测参数,可以解决当无墙外WIFI时,系统会自动从墙内WIFI切换到手机网络的问题。
adb shell settings put global captive_portal_mode 0
adb shell settings put global captive_portal_https_url https://www.google.cn/generate_204

2. 建议安装冰箱(icebox)、黑阈一类的软件,压制国内软件的自启动及后台行为,待机时间会明显提升。我装的icebox,一定要在刷完之后就装,通过device owner即可安装成功,不需要root。如果已经使用了一段时间,就算删除了各种账号,也无法再通过device owner方式了,此时只有recovery恢复原厂后,才能安装成功。

3. 显示设置里选择60HZ刷新率,然后安装S20 Refresh Rate Control,mix4可以用的,设置成90HZ刷新率,相对于120HZ,在体验流畅画面的同时,能省一点是一点。

btw,mix4真的很耗电。。。888是火龙实至名归

Unfortunately I am unable to install this rom. I'm installing twrp and going to recovery. The computer does not see the phone to be able to throw the rom.
At the moment, I have a stable miui 13

Try it this way:
1 First enter FASTBOOT mode
2 Run: fastboot boot twrp-3.6.1-odin.img
3 When the TRWP page appears, Advanced, ADB Sideload
4 Run: adb devices, if it goes well, you can see your mix4 now
6 Run: adb sideload PixelExperience....zip

Enjoy the ROM~

In my Case, this was the only possible Methode..
1. Backup all Ur Data
2. Reflash MIUI V12 Fastboot
3. Set Up MIUI without Password Finish.
4.Settings ->developer Mode ->secure Boot disable.
5. Reboot Fastboot and flash Twrp.img via Fastboot Boot Twrpingname.img
6. Mtp activate and Transfer the Rom and the orange fox Recovery
7. Flash Orange Recovery
8. Reboot in Orange Recovery( it does auto load)
9. Flash the Rom
10. Delete Data With "yes"
11. Reboot
12. Finish
In my Case the only possible way

New build with June security patch is up.

Anyone having problems installing should check the extended update instructions in my LineageOS thread

Thank you for your help. I see the rom does not support 5G network
It most definitely supports 5G, I have 5G service on my device right now lol. Check your SIM card, I had a bug report about 5G working on MIUI but not on my ROMs, turns out that user didn't have a 5G compatible SIM card and MIUI was fake reporting 5G support.

Which is the best way to Update this Rom without delete Storage?
Just sideload ZIP and flash?
Thanks

    is there any new update?
    not yet, but you can find that in the download link (the update date is always there)

    Noticing a bit high battery drain. Could this be due to AOD?
    In the beginning, this is always because the device first has to learn how you use it. (Intelligent battery control) If your device knows how you use it, it usually settles down

    Hi!
    That's great ROM, thank you very much for your work!
    I want to share two things that I have noticed.

    1) I have a problem with incoming audio in Skype and Teams.
    It's distorted and high-pitched when playing on a phone or speaker, but it's fine on Bluetooth headphones.
    Am I alone with this bug? Any remedy for that?

    2) After some longer time of using from the restart, I get some freezes and general system instability. Clearing apps from memory helps, and also the limiting number of background tasks in developer options also helps with that (but this setting is cleared on restart). Looks like there is still a place for improvements in memory management.
    the first issue i have also, sound like chipmunk when someone talks to me. :D

    I have tested everything possible to terminate this bug. also the refresh rate but it didn't work. But I already got an answer in which the bugs were found and I'm waiting now Until an update appears and hope that these bugs are eliminated. Then it's an excellent system and will be replaced by an original Pixel in the fall. Unless Google launches a pixel with UDC.

    i tested it and i love it! but...... : How can I fix the brightness settings? the display briefly gets a bit brighter and then darker again(like a single strobe). even when the automatic brightness setting is switched off
    I think I derped something when I was cleaning up the brighness overlays. I noticed brightness values are a bit off compared to previous builds. I'm looking into it 👍

    Hey I'm very curious about Pixel experience, how about the Widewine level? and is the saftynet check passed?
    Widevine has always been L1, it's just Netflix being a crappy app that would select L3 instead (fixed in latest build). Safetynet passes just fine as standard.
