I had some troubles when flashing pixelos recovery, "fastboot flash boot boot.img" didnt work, so i used orangefox, you install it thru twrp, oh cmon i have the instructions up there!
Is twrp really necessary to install Ofox, I install it directly without having to install twrp?

Installation directions are unclear.
Both those on the website and those in the OP.
For example: how do I flash latest firmware?
I cannot "just try" with those IMG files I can see in this thread.
Then, if the recovery IMG is something like TWRP/OrangeFox, then I can do the rest.
But this device uses Android Verified Boot (AVB), so TWRP/OrangeFox could not work at all without some vbmeta.img file and, more important, tested procedure.
I don't want to brick my device. Any step-by-step tested procedure?

    Does this rom have media controls via volume buttons feature when screen is off? It was listed in "improvements over pixel experience" link, but i cannot find it anywhere.

    P.S. I have been using this rom for over a week and I am really impressed by its performance, stability and battery life.

    Zeetaa seems to be on the ball and more than capable, but I think we need to do more to support the maintainer/dev.

    So many posts in this thread seems to be asking when the next update will be coming. Since when was this accepted on the forum? Do you guys not realise that the maintainer does not respond to you?

    Before posting, have a think about how these requests affect devs who are providing their time for free and how that would make you feel. Do you think it's pressuring them to work faster? At best it's ignored, at worst, you're pissing them off and providing even more reasons for them to step down from a project.

    Also, we need fewer feature requests and more constructive feedback. Just my opinion.

    This might be what he was referring to.
    Since the latest release was before 27 January, it probably doesn't have the hotfix.

    PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
    In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

    Code:
    /* Your warranty is now void.
    *
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    You know, i'll write my own instructions. Since the Installation instructions aren't really that documented (as pixel experiences ones, for example) this is how i did it:

    Make sure the bootloader is unlocked!

    Installation:

    1. I started with clean installing the latest MIUI. Here are the instructions to do that:
    1a. Download Mi Flash Tool from
    here.
    1b. Install the drivers. Can be done from Mi Flash Tool or Mi Unlock Tool.
    1c. Download the latest MIUI ROM from here
    (pick the latest one for your country that has a fastboot option, for example:
    POCO F3 EEA Stable Fastboot V13.0.9.0.SKHEUXM)
    1d. Download the latest firmware from
    here
    (again, pick the latest one for your country.)
    1e. Enter Fastboot mode, turn off your F3 and hold the volume down with the power button, once you see the poco logo, release the power button and when the fastboot logo appears, release the volume down button.
    1f. Open Mi Flash Tool (Warning! It may crash while installing the drivers! To fix this, create a folder named "log" in the directory you launched the Flash tool.)
    1g. Select the MIUI ROM folder, (extracted, it goes like this -> tar.gz -> tar -> folder, recommend using 7zip/winrar!)
    1h. Select flash-all.bat, DO NOT select flash-all-lock, that will lock your bootloader. And flash!
    1i. Complete the MIUI 13 Setup, DO NOT set a pin/fingerprint scanner.
    1j. Enable USB Debugging. And we can finally get to flashing the rom!

    2. Download platform-tools from
    here.
    2a. Extract it and open cmd.
    2b. While in the platform-tools directory, type "adb devices"
    Your device should ask to enable usb debugging on this computer, click yes.
    2c. Type "adb reboot bootloader" check if it detected it by using "fastboot devices" and if yes, we are getting to flashing it!
    2d. Now, download the latest build and recovery from
    here.
    2e. Flash the recovery using "fastboot flash boot <recovery_filename>.img
    (replace the things i type in <> with proper file names)
    2f. Reboot using "fastboot reboot-recovery"
    2g. Bootloop? Doesn't work? Try using orangefox recovery. For that, you have to flash twrp. Here are the instructions:
    1. Download TWRP from
    here. (Select 3.6.1 for proper function!)
    2. Type "fastboot boot <TWRP_xxx>.img"
    3. In TWRP, go to Wipe, and Format Data. Type yes.
    4. Download OrangeFox from
    here.
    5. Type "adb push <OrangeFox_recovery.img> /sdcard
    6. Go to install, and install OrangeFox!
    7.Reboot

    3. Now, the problem is i dont know how the PixelOS Recovery is, soooo, uhhh i dunno.

    4. Meanwhile OrangeFox:

    1. Go to Wipe, and erase:
    Dalvik, Metadata, Data, Internal Storage
    2. Well again. Type "adb push <PixelOS.zip>"
    3. Flash it by clicking on it.
    4. MAKE SURE TO NOTICE WHAT SLOT IT SAYS. A or B.
    5. Flash the firmware. Type "adb push <xiaomi-firmware>.img" and flash it.
    6. After flashing, restart, if the SLOT is A, and it said B, switch to B and reboot. The same for the opposite, if it said A, and it's A, just restart.


    Dirty Flashing is simple tho:
    1.Boot to orangefox
    2.Flash the ROM
    3.Reboot

    Done! This took me so long, ugh why did i do this to myself.
    Also, uh you can flash magisk after the firmware or something i dont use it so i dont know the process :)
