I have been having a hard time installing this ROM, mind I haven't tried another ROM on this phone.

After an almost catastrophic fail I reinstalled the global MIUI with the fastboot image found here and the phone was made available again with the MIUI

Then after searching the thread I found a post that had a semblance of a step by step guide and followed it
After flashing TWRP

step 6 : check if system, vendor and firmware partitions are mounted under the 'mount' option before flashing DM verity zip.
step 7 : now flash the DM verity encryption zip
step 8 : go to wipe and format data, after formating data go to reboot settings and slelect reboot to recovery.
step 9 : now wipe system, data, cache, vendor, dalvik...then flash the needed firmware.
step 10 : flash the pixel experience rom..

On step 6 I guess I needed the file Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrpt.zip which I flashed after checking the mount options.
I wiped the partitions mentioned and installed the firmware for global, the filename was fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAELGlobal_V11.0.1.0.QFKMIXM_7b25321468_10.0.zip which I downloaded here

Then I flashed the PExp rom which resulted in a fastboot screen.

What Am I doing wrong?
Is there some other thread with general instructions?

just follow these...

1 : wipe everything except internal storage.
2 : flash the vendor firmware.
3 : then the rom
4 : disable force encryption file.
5 : reboot

if reboot didn't make it to boot...boot into twrp, then format data then reboot...done...:cowboy:

most importantly , make sure you're using the correct twrp.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm using the latest TWRP from the thread here.

I tried your steps and again it ended in fastboot. Formatted Data reboot and again fastboot.

Does the firmware need to be exact to the phone I'm using? By default mine was Global.

Is the vendor firmware supposed to be about 100MB or about 700MB?
Cause mine is 100MB, it may not be the file I'm supposed to be using.

You have firmware not vendor. Vendor is about 700mb.

I tried with the global vendor here and got an error, I don't recall the exact words but I saw that I can skip it by deleting the compatibility file in the archive.
I did, the vendor file flashed with no errors, then the PE rom, then DM verity encryption zip but again in the end it took me to fastboot. I formatted data and again fastboot.

Do I have to use the Chinese vendor? It seems absurd to me if that's it cause mine was supposed to be global.

-EDIT-
I downloaded the file here
Download Android 10 version here

And I noticed it didn't have the compatibility file in there.
I will try with this vendor file later and report back.

Maybe you're flashing an Android 10 vendor instead of an Android 9 one

Try this:

  • Flash the latest MIUI Pie(9.0) ROM (Global/Indian) through fastboot (Mi Flash) and boot it once and set up.
  • Install Latest Orangefox recovery and boot into recovery
  • Wipe everything except vendor and internal storage
  • Flash only PE ROM, don't flash DM verity and dont reboot yet.
  • Format data partition(type YES) from manage partitions
  • Reboot to system

I installed yesterday without no problem, this rom is perfect.

Use this vendor : fw-vendor_raphael_miui_RAPHAEL_V10.3.17.0.PFKCNXM_ccf13bbd55_9.0
Use this rom : PixelExperience_Plus_raphael-9.0-20190906-1038-OFFICIAL

1-Open OrangeFox recovery
2-Wipe all except system and vendor (need to reboot)
3-Reboot to Recovery again
4-Manage partitions, Data, Format Data
5-Flash vendor
6-Flash Rom
7-Flash Magisk
8-In Magisk, use SafetyNet Patcher to Pass cts and safety
9-Download Anx Camera 139 and flash in magisk
10-Download Raphael Cust Lib and flash in magisk

All done.. :fingers-crossed:

how's the pe10??

Advantages??

Pe9 will be more stable compared to pe10 untill an official pe10 comes up..

I dont have face unlock. Only problem is gcam, if I video with selfie cam i cant get the camera to go back down. Battery life is alright but miui was better. besides that its great real smooth games work, haven't had any other issues.

I am experiencing a bug with the selfie camera.
It's not quite a deal breaker but it's weird. When I am at selfie cam mode and the selfie cam is already out, if I swipe to a different mode, but still in selfie mode, it sounds like the mechanism for the selfie cam is activated and trying to push it outside again even though it is already out.

Is this the better place to report bugs or is there some other platform that can reach the devs more directly?

I used the latest android 9 vendor available on xiaomifirmwareupdater Global_V10.3.3.0.PFKMIXM_67fb825970_9.0 and the latest pixel experience available for android 9 PixelExperience_Plus_raphael-9.0-20190906-1038-OFFICIAL

    So the first official version is up.
    Pie chinese vendor is recommended

    https://download.pixelexperience.org/raphael

    As some guys already know, i don't own the device, and fixing bugs without devices in hands is a hard thing. So please if you like my work, and want a improved version of PE and device-side improvements, consider donating. http://bit.ly/jhenrique09_paypal

    Thanks to @TingyiChen and @UtsavTheGreat for the initial trees.

    I have the unofficial PE Plus version installed. Can I dirty flash the official version without wiping data?
