Anyone experiencing a random boot loop issue? My phone had this issue on stock rom and now with PE. Was fine on PE for about 2 weeks and now is boot looping like stock rom. Any thoughts?

As far as I know the unbrick method will format your data, and there's no way around it.

ok, then i don't wanna unbricking my device, i just want to decrypt data partition, as i thing, updating ROM didn't touch user data part, so in theory all data are in place, but i don't know how to decrypt it....

I'm guessing you mean encrypted in recovery.

Someone have the rom Pixel Experience + May version? I need because the new releases have the battery drain problem :/ please send me a link or something

Redmi Note 8 Pro
This custom rom is based on global version of MIUI which has Google Dialer and does not support automatic call recorder. Is there anyway to make it based on Indian MIUI version so that it has built in call recorder from MIUI stock rom or is there any way to replace Google Dialer with MIUI stock dialer application to achieve the same?

    For the ones on A11 and want to fully stop forced system update and huge battery drain:

    1. Root your device using Magisk
    2. Use an explorer with root access to find Hosts Archive (System/ect/Hosts), in my case i've used FX file explorer to mount/read the files in system folders
    3. Edit adding those lines to blacklist those 2 google domains who check if updates are on ota.googlezip.net ota-cache1.googlezip.net

    4. Save Hosts, lock system files and reset.

    Battery drain and data usage should be normal now.
    Hi all,
    I'm on version 11 plus from to month, but from the last week I see a significant decrease in battery life, before I could easly arrive at 2 day with one charge but now I barely arrive to the end of the day.
    I red on the forum about some battery issue, but I wonder why these issues appears after a while and not immidiately. I tried to resinstall the latest 11 plus build (the same I had by the way) but nothing change (I thought after a clean reinstall I had the old battery life). Is this about the build or about the phone. What's seems strange to me (in case of battery degradation) is that I get less then half of the battery life in the span of 2 days and not a slow degradation.
    Any suggestions?
    Greetings, I hope you are all in good spirits.
    First of all, thanks for the fork for the Android 12 version.

    Visually, A12 is insanely beautiful and Pixel Experience Edition to boot, so no third-party crap (like I loathe Xiaomi's MIUI - way too loaded and visually an insult).

    All in all, you've done a great job.

    I still have a few complications, but I see them more as teething troubles.

    • Bluetooth connection (headphones) very unstable + too short range (max. 15cm, otherwise connection loss) - is actually due to the Pixel Experience Rom, both A11 and A12. The connection is stable for several meters via Miui.
    • Mobile data has a slightly weaker signal.
    • USB tethering (both sharing wifi and via mobile data works rather changeably, sometimes not at all, wifi is a bit more stable).
    • When scrolling, there is often screentearing / visible screen tearing or even stuttering, especially in the Google Play Store or on larger vertical lists.

    I have to mention the following positively:

    - Installation was very easy, if you follow the recommendations.
    - Visually a blast
    - Rooting / Magisk installation very simple
    - Play Store certification
    - Fingerprint & screenshot function usable out of the box without workarounds

    And lastly, really love you guys for still breathing some life into the old Begonia!

    Stay healthy & have a nice evening.
    So going from PE11+ to PE12 via MIUI 12.5.3 will be ok? Using the correct TWRP recovery download from the guide
    If MIUI 12.5.3 is the latest MIUI for your phone's region you should be OK.

    You can check here for the latest MIUI: https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/miui/begonia/
    More detailed installation guide: https://wiki.pixelexperience.org/devices/begonia/install/

    The screenshot and screen recording is not working....When I tried to take screenshot it says " Couldn't save screenshot" also the screen recording shows an error message.Hope you will fix this...
    I used an app from play store and it did the job perfectly. It's called Screen Master.
