Use Root to determine what is keeping your phone awake, app or partial wakelock. Battery Guru app can tell you if you have root
Hey! I gave battery guru the rights its needed. What does this tell me 😂😅

If anyone else is looking for a GCam that works well on Pixel Experience with ultrawide support and no freezing, Wichaya 8.1 is the way to go.

Tried more or less every recent 8.x release (Shamim, BSG, etc.) and Wichaya is the only one that works reliably.
this here is workin fine with 27 MP without config for me

Please use BSG 8.1 which has proper support for the ultrawide and macro lenses.
BSG 8.1 restarts when switching lenses, I did not find it satisfactory for daily use. Wichaya8 has all lenses available without restarting. I post this only to help anyone else dissatisfied with BSG, to save the week of trial and error.

With no disrespect to the community or individual efforts to bring Google's computational photography to other handsets, I generally find GCam ports to be a poor and convoluted user experience; a time-sink for flagship handsets, more beneficial in the midrange.

Thankfully, every other aspect of the Mi 11 is tremendously improved with Pixel Experience. This has been the best aftermarket ROM I have used on any device in at least several years. Many thanks for your wonderful work, especially at a time when Xiaomi has not updated the Mi 11's global track in 4+ months.

    I can only attach a screenshot, I don't really know how to formulate the problem 😅. I hope you will understand anywayView attachment 5681343
    I see. It will be enabled in the next update.
    Maybe I will switch from Mi10 to Mi11 because of this official support but it would he a downgrade :(

    How good.bad is the battery life compare to stock MIUI?

    battery life is better than MIUI. maybe 10% to 15% better imo.
    This support this game Turbo ?
    What is that? The MIUI feature that limits the performance and puts more restriction on thermal when you launch a game? It's weird to call that "Turbo".
    Its a tool for 12y kids

    Dear jjpprrr, thank you for the best Mi11 experience !
    After reading that there are many fixes already available und the security fixes for june are also released I want to ask kindly when you plan to release the next version of your wonderful ROM. (no pressure, it´s already my all time favorite for the Mi11!)
    I understand that you didn't mean to offend, but I genuinely have no idea how to answer questions like this. I feel like asking for an ETA is quite pointless: you would only get an estimate; whether the release will come as I promised or not is still undetermined.
    • If I find some regressions and need to take time to fix them, all you get is more disappointment.
    • Say everything is ready, and I deliberately hold on the update to mess with you guys. Why would I do it? What do I gain from it? Of course I release as soon as it's ready, so no need to ask about it. I don't freaking know when it will be ready. I only know after I finish testing everything.
    On the other hand, official PE's release window is not always open. We work on the ROM source at our own pace. Sometimes the CI is locked so we can start merging new patches or bringing in fixes. For example, right now due to some build server issue, all releases are halted. We cannot release anything even if the device is ready.

    Therefore, please relax and enjoy the current build. This would be the last time I answer questions regarding ETA.
    Please follow the wiki for detailed install instructions. I will not provide support if you fail to follow the required steps.

    If you are on my previous PE 12 / 12 Plus builds, you can directly OTA or dirty flash in recovery. A concise version of clean flash guide for the experienced users:
    - Download the vendor_boot.img (
    - Download PE recovery from the official PE website
    - Boot your phone into bootloader mode. You can either
    * hold power + volume down button
    * or `adb reboot bootloader`
    - Connect your phone to a computer
    - Run `fastboot flash vendor_boot vendor_boot.img` in your cmd/powershell/terminal
    - Run `fastboot flash boot pe_recovery_file_name.img` in your cmd/powershell/terminal
    - Hold power + volume up to boot into recovery, or `fastboot reboot recovery`
    - In PE recovery, select `Factory reset" --> "Format data/factory reset`
    - Go back to main menu and select "Apply update" --> "Apply from ADB"
    - Run `adb sideload` in your cmd/powershell/terminal and wait until it finishes
    Hi jjpprrrr, we all know the rules about eta, but can you give some news about your next update ? 🥹
