Hi ! First of all thank you for this ROM, I enjoy it so much !

Nonetheless, I found two problems :
- Sometimes, my speakers start to crackle. I think it's a software problem because when I reboot my device the problem is gone.
- It also happens apps don't open when I click on them from the home menu when I boot my device. I have to reboot it to correct this issue.

I need to know how i can access to exfat and ntfs file systems. With my oneplus 6t and android pie i can on my phone, but with my xiaomi and pixel experience isn´t possible. Perhaps another kernel? More info, please.

After the last actualization, everything goes well. Only i probe with NTFS, but exfat is less important for me

There's no update for over 2 months, does this thread still alive, or the maintainer discontinued the project?:confused:

Thank you for this build. I hope you continue doing magic.

No bugs found. It's incredible.
I do have a question, should we modify the DP (pixel density) to match the screen on the 4 plus model? The notification panel looks very pixelated to me and the panel itself looks super small.

Other than that, it rocks!!!


Wanna add that it charges rapidly...

Amazing

This is the most bug free and well working ROM I've ever installed on a device thank you! Things that didn't work with the xiaomi ROM (Google contacts, grim Fandango, Midi control on USB) are all working!

This rom is working great. Nothing to complain about at all.
The only thing that is missing, is security updates.

Or is there a way to handle this without installing a new image that I don't know about?

A few observations

Firstly thank you to the Dev for this ROM as it just works and it is rock solid for me so far. I do hope we get an Android 10 version.

It took me ages to flash TWRP on the Mi Pad 4. It made no sense and I kept getting an error about the image being too big. In the end it is simple. You absolutely must use USB2 to do the job. I tried USB3 and got nowhere. I tried a USB2 port on my desktop that also has USB3 ports. Nothing. In desperation I dug out an old notebook that only has USB2 and just like that TWRP was installed.

My Mi Pad 4 came with the EU ROM and it worked fine but no updates were ever going to come. Since flashing this ROM I now have aptX when I connect my Degauss Labs Noir earbuds. Nice to have high def audio over Bluetooth. That was in the hardware, but not activated in the Xiaomi software. The other is high speed charging. When I plug in a standard charger I get the message - Charging ... but when I plug it into a QC 3 charger I get the message - Fast Charging ... Is that real or just the message? Clearly the system recognises the different charger. I would have to time it and see if it really is faster but indications are that it is. Something else in the hardware that was not implemented in the stock ROM.

Do not use Ambient mode. Having the clock on the screen all the time drains the battery too fast. With the screen off it will sit for days on the table and barely reduce the battery.

If you want a working Netflix then this works just fine.

All in all this is good stuff.

Just got one of these with MIUI on it which I don't really like...

So I'm going to flash this instead :)

A quick question....

My pad shows "unlocked" on the boot screen and in Xiaomi ADB/fastboot tools it's recognizes the device as;

Codename: Clover
Bootloader: Unlocked
Anti-version: 1

Can I just flash this ROM from the Xiaomi tools, or do I have to install from TRWP? (I don't need a backup as this is a new pad or even TWRP as this is a device for a non-tech savvy family member)

(Also what is meaning of Anti-version?)

Thanks

If yours is setup like mine was you will have to install TWRP because the recovery supplied is in Chinese, plus you need TWRP to properly flash the ROM.

This will do the job properly. NB it is vital to only use USB2 as USB3 will just show false errors and not work - so either an old computer that is USB2 only or use a USB2 hub.

Do NOT clear or wipe or format the Persistence folder.
TWRP has some errors when you try and clear data and will complain about encryption and ask for a password which does not exist - so use the other option to format data and system

From there I put the ROM on an SD card and flashed it from TWRP and it all worked well. Netflix workaround - https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/apk-bundle-netflix-v7-10-0-2019-05-24-t3934574


Lastly there is now a first release of an Android 10 Pixel Experience ROM and on my version I have no issues and can even install Netflix from the playstore - however mine is the LTE version and people with the WiFi only version have a few issues.

Just wanted to say thanks for this post (if a little late... I didn't login for a while).

I did as you suggested and installed TWRP, wiped (not Persistence) and then installed Pixel Experience 10, and so far everything has run smoothly!
I'm a very happy camper!

Cheers! :good:
