If you want to update by yourselves to official PE, I will write the steps:

• Download PE: https://download.pixelexperience.org/raphael
• Uncompress it
• Delete the file boot.img

• Download latest xiaomi.eu beta: https://sourceforge.net/projects/xi....eu_multi_HMK20MI9T_9.8.15_v10-9.zip/download
• Uncompress it
• copy the 3 files vendor. and boot.img

• Paste the 4 files inside the PE folder
• Replace the file: updater-script with the attached one
• Compress the files and folders

I recommend a clean install
• Go to TWRP
[• If you are encrypted, probably you need to format data and lose everything]
• Wipe system, data, cache and dalvik
• Reboot TWRP
• Do a factory reset
• Reboot TWRP
• Install the ROM
• [optional] Install magisk and dm verity forceencrypt disabler
• Reboot

uc


I found 2 issues:
• DT2W doesn't work
• Fingerprint reader needs high brightness level

PD: you can do the same with any ROM from K20 Pro.

Will it work same as on k20 and k20 pro? Or differently?
Or it will have some bug due to porting of some img files?

Thanks Schnedi. I followed your steps and it performs absolutely flawless! I upgraded from my unofficial PE to this ROM (no clean install) without issues. All things that didn't work in the unofficial version work fine now (incl. Brightness, Adaptive Brightnes, Pocket mode). Thanks a lot!!

PS. It took me a while to realize that I had to download the upgrader-script file and *replace* the one in the \google\... folder. At first I copied it in the root which obviously resulted in an error in TWRP that this ROM was intended for K20 Pro.

I edited my message (yesterday) because that semi-port was provisional. Now we have an specific Pixel Experience rom and works pretty well.

It's not worth to waste your time doing that.

As @sergaypoke say, use that one instead.

Yes, that one, I use the Plus versión because it includes some extra features.


These are the steps I follow:
• Boot to TWRP
• Wipe system, data, dalvik and cache
[Format data if you are on MIUI)
• Factory reset
• Reboot TWRP
• Flash the rom
• Reboot TWR
OPTIONAL [Flash Magisk and any other zip you want)
• Factory reset
• Reboot system

Could i ask you something? To wipe system, should i First mount the system partition at the mount-twrp? That is to say, the system partition must be first mounted to be wiped? Thank you, my friend!

I've never checked if it is mounted or unmounted before wiping.

By default should be mounted.

Anyway, if should give error "unable to mount or unmount system partition" then, you should change it.

But don't change it if it doesn't give error.

    PixelExperience for Xiaomi MI 9T [Davinci]

    https%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FGtwTyCR.png



    I share with you perhaps the most stable custom ROM today for our Xiaomi MI 9T / Redmi k20, based on Pixel Experience.

    Originally it is for the Redmi k20 Pro, but minimal changes were made to make it 100% compatible with the MI 9T.

    It is recommended to be installed from the Global version 10.3.9.

    What is this?
    Pixel Experience is an AOSP/CAF based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, bootanimation)

    Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential and useful features for the proper functioning of the device

    Based on Android 9.0


    Whats working?

    Wifi
    RIL
    Mobile data
    GPS
    Camera [including pop up camera]
    Flashlight
    Camcorder
    Bluetooth
    FMRadio
    FOD
    NFC
    Lights
    Sound / vibration

    Fingerprint with AOD working.

    New boot

    Known issues

    -The camera LED when leaving or saving does not turn on.

    Everything else works!


    Instructions:

    -Make a general erase from TWRP.

    -Install from TWRP like any ROM, the vbmeta file is already included inside the .zip

    -Install Magisk

    -Install permissive_v4

    DON'T FLASH GAPPS, ALREADY INCLUDED
    Download


    Build author: UtsavTheGreat

    Mod for MI 9T: menphis

    Venezolano desde Argentina!!!

    Step-by-step instructions for newbies

    I'm new to Android and for a newbie I found the installation procedure often complex, confusing and frustrating. I've experiences countless boot loops, TWRP boot issues, fears of having bricked my phone. I've therefore created this instruction. Maybe other Android newbies that want to experiment with Pixel Experience on their Mi 9T/K20 get some value out of it.

    TIP: If you screwed up, try repeat step 3 & 4 again to reset the device to factory ROM.
    In my case, if I follow the steps below to the letter. I can get PE running on any Mi9T/K20.
    However, results may vary.

    FIRST: Connect your device to USB. Please note that the procedure below will erase all data!

    1) UNLOCK DEVICE
    a. Download miflash_unlock from http://en.miui.com/unlock/download_en.html
    b. Extract the zip file to a new folder: c:\xiaomi
    c. Put your Xiaomi device in Fastboot by keeping Volume DOWN + Power On/Off pressed
    d. From c:\xiaomi, run: miflash_unlock.exe
    e. Reboot your phone after it has been unlocked successfully
    (note that Xiaomi has a wait time before your phone can be unlocked)

    2) INSTALL TOOLS
    a. Download files from: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=48915118#post48915118
    b. Extract the zip file to c:\xiaomi
    c. From c:\xiaomi run adb-setup-1.4.3.exe

    3) CLEAN UP EVERYTHING
    a. Put your Xiaomi device in Fastboot by keeping Volume DOWN + Power On/Off pressed
    b. Open a Command Window (Start > CMD)
    c. Type: fastboot erase system -w
    d. Type: fastboot erase boot
    e. Type: fastboot erase recovery
    f. Type: fastboot reboot

    4) FLASH A CLEAN FACTORY ROM
    a. Download the latest ROM (select type: Fastboot) from: https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/miui/davinci/
    b. Unpack the file to c:\xiaomi
    c. Open a command prompt and type: cd\xiaomi
    d. type: flash_all.bat
    e. Once the phone reboots, keep pressing Volume DOWN + Power On/Off to enter Fastboot

    5) INSTALL TWRP RECOVERY
    a. Download TWRP recovery for the K20 Mi9T from here: https://xiaomi-miui.gr/community/index.php/Thread/25256-TWRP-3-3-X-X-για-συσκευές-XIAOMI/
    c. Save the downloaded file in c:\xiaomi
    d. Open a command window and type: fastboot flash recovery c:\xiaomi\[name of the downloaded image].img
    e. Reboot you phone by keeping Volume UP + Power On/Off pressed until it vibrates and you see the Mi logo.
    f. You are now booting into TWRP

    6) COPY IMPORTANT FILES
    a. On your PC, download Magisk from: https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445
    b. On your PC, download Permissiver_v4 from: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=6006931924117886495
    c. Copy the downloaded ZIP files of Magisk and Permissiver to the TWRP folder on your device
    d. On your PC, download PixelExperience from: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-9t/development/rom-pixel-experience-t3953280
    e. Copy the downloaded PixelExperience ZIP file to the TWRP folder on your device

    7) INSTALL PIXEL EXPERIENCE
    a. In TWRP click Install and select PixelExperience
    b. Click the button "Add more Zips" and add Magisk
    c. Click the button "Add more Zips and add Permissiver
    d. Wipe Cache/Dalvik
    e. Reboot

    8) INSTALL EXTRA'S
    a. Install Google Camera (Gcam): https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-urnyx05/
    This version supports all lenses. Turn it on in settings. In my case, front-cam video does not seem to work...
    b. Change the version of your phone to Google Pixel 2 by downloading this ZIP and installing it via Magisk Manager.
    This will allow you to install Pixel-only apps from Google Play (eg. ARcore)
    https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfiles/gcm1/ARCore_Playground_Patcher-v1.6.zip
    c. Open Magisk > Setings > Turn on Fingerprint Authentication (in my case, this solved the ctsProfile error in Magisk)

    You device will restart and -after a short while- boot into Pixel Experience.
    Enjoy it, it's great!

    NOTE: To upgrade to a newer version without wiping your configuration/apps etc: download the new version of Pixel Experience for K20/Mi9T and follow steps 6E till 7E above.

    Edit 15/8/2019: After using it for a few days I'm still impressed. More than good enough to work as a daily driver. I've listed below what works and what doesn't work.
    Any recommendation to fix these is appreciated.

    What does work (to my surprise):
    - Behind glass fingerprint registration & unlock
    - Face unlock with pop-up front cam
    - NFC payment (bunq bank app)
    - Same long battery life
    - All 3 lenses in Gcam
    - Everything else

    What doesn't work:
    - Double Tap to Wake
    - Google Playground (AR)
    - Slow motion and Photo Kiosk in Gcam
    - I noticed that I cannot do front cam video. May need to try another Gcam APK.
    - in some apps the fingerprint overlaps with the keypad making it hard to press '8'
    - Netflix does not show in Google Play Store when your device is rooted.
    - I disabled Pocket detection as a precaution (some suggested it may cause deep sleep)
    - Adaptive Brightness. When enabled, the screen toggles unpredictably between bright and dark.
    See below a potential fix in case you run into issues:

    Please note: In case your device turns totally dark directly after boot, do this:
    - Remove the SIM
    - Find a bright room (sunlight preferred)
    - Reboot by pressing power until the logo appears
    - Wait until the screen turns dark (press the power button if you see the clock)
    - Swipe down from the top
    - You still won't see anything yet but the brightness slider is approx 1 cm from the top. Try and swipe it to the right. Keep trying until the screen lights up.
    - Disable Adaptive Brightness (Settings > Display > Adaptive Brightness)
