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 (https://gitlab.pixelexperience.org/...venus/-/raw/twelve/android-12/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 pe_rom_file_name.zip` in your cmd/powershell/terminal and wait until it finishes

Hello,
We noticed there's already one thread (from 2022-04-17: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...el-experience-for-xiaomi-mi-11-venus.4433309/) titled shared but also official.

Can you please fix your prefix and double check your kernel source links, we need to be sure there is no duplicated threads.
Thanks for your cooperation.

I think I found a weird bug in latest pe+ , fingerprint unlock doesn't work for some reason in direct sunlight , it works well in shade or indoors but whenever I step outside in direct sunlight it stops working , my guess it's something have to do with outdoor (bright sun) display mode , whenever it gets automatically activated , fingerprint unlock stops working

Hi! Thanks for the report. FOD is indeed broken when the the "Outdoor" display mode is activated. As a temporary fix, go to Settings/Display/LiveDisplay/Display mode, and change from "Automatic" to "Off".

Unfortunately because my work mostly outdoors , outdoor mode is extremely helpful to me , so I guess I will have to go with face unlock beside FOD whenever I'm outside until it's fixed, aside from that thanks guys for your hard work, it's really appreciated, I was just about to sell my mi 11 because of miui and lose considerably a good amount of money , but your amazing work convinced me otherwise, thanks 🙏

I already fixed it locally. PM me on telegram so I can send you a test build.

    Yeah my phone never gets hot. Battery life is happy 7 sot for me.. not sure what your problem is though it's not the rom.

    Install battery guru grant it root or ADB permissions and find out

    Don't try patch the vandor boot it got my phone in fastboot loop thank you need to rip the boot image from your phone by commands to patch it

    Yes, Im trying to root my phone but im struggling to find how to do that. I cant seem to find any detailed instructions on how to root the phone with this ROM, I dont want to mess it up and get soft brick.
    Is there any differences from rooting the phone from stock ROM or Pixel Experience ROM? I know that I have to first install magisk app and then with USB debugging activated install the manager from ADB.

    Regarding the battery life of your phone is really impressive. Maybe the problem of my Mi 11 is something related to hardware, battery is almost 2 years old. I also read somewere that many Mi 11 users have the same experience and it is related to Wi-Fi chipset that drains too much power, some of them the chipset got fried too.


    its true batteries will deteriorate over time.. especially if not looked after. Best way to get the longest life out of your battery is NEVER run them flat. Best keep it above 20% at all times. And do not use fast chargers unless you have too.. and don't leave them at 100% for too long. Even better only charge to 80%.. though that is a pain in the butt :)

    i actually have a nice and slow 0.8a charger that i use overnight so i get a nice and slow charge overnight..

    i also go into a lot of apps and RESTRICT their Battery usage as well. You can find it under the App Info of your apps and then under BATTERY you can then RESTRICT apps from running in the background. may help you too.

    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.
