Rmn8p is only g90t version. And these custom roms work with both begonia & begoniain. This is too old rom and post also. Lastest PE is A12L one. And you can find many other custom roms by search Redmi note 8 pro on Telegram. Many unofficial & official roms with changlog is posted over there. They should make a post on XDA but idk why they didn't do it.
A HUGE thanks to everyone who believed and helped test my builds! This would have been impossible without them. Here's them in no particular order
- Agent_fabulous (Lead Dev)
- Sagar Sorathiya (absolute madlad tester)
- Sahil Sonar
- Zinadin Zidan
And anyone else I missed!
Also, huge thanks to @TheImpulson and @dev_harsh1998 for helping and contributing to begonia!
How to install Pixel Experience on the Xiaomi RedMi Note 8 Pro UnOfficial Noob Guide
UnOfficial Noob Guide - Last Updated July 28, 2020)
This is how I got it to work. There may be superfluous steps. All the outlines I found lacking because they were written by Android Genius Gods and they can't relate to us mere mortals. There are countless DEAD links, and flat out WRONG directions pointing people on endless goose chases looking for files that "should" be there and aren't. Anyways, I finally found them all and got it working. Use at your own risk yada yada. As of the writing of this text (2020.07.28), the fingerprint sensor is dodgy and I'm still trying to figure out how to make Google Pay work. I'm sure there are other issues, but I haven't found them.
I don't trust Xiaomi, their business model is selling user data to make up for cheap hardware. And I hate the User Interface. And I hate the bloatware. Let's eliminate all those problems by putting something nice and clean on it, like Pixel Experience. This is how you do that. So when you get your phone,
2. Turn on the phone, go through the preliminary wizard install stuff, unchecking everything you can, etc. Don't sign in to your Google Account. Go to "Settings" - "Mi Account" and log in to your account. Put your sim card in, you will need to have it TEXT verified. Once done with all these prep-work steps, take the sim card out and put it back in your old phone while you wait a week. (this phone requires you to wait 1 week (168 hours) before you can unlock it.)
3. To make sure you are doing this right, (and don't have to wait 2 weeks instead of 1) download & unzip the Mi Unlock tool from here: https://en.miui.com/unlock/download_en.html. (I used miflash_unlock-en-4.5.707.49.zip)
4. Try to run "miflash_unlock.exe" > Agree > sign in > and Unlock your phone, it should start giving you the countdown of 168 hours to go. This is stupid and unavoidable. I know. Just make sure it's all set and counting down. Yes, you can check this anytime and see the new number of hours remaining.
3. While you're in the settings, get into developer mode by tapping the Miui Version number many times until it says "You are now a developer."
4. Turn off all your security settings (pattern, passwords, face rec, etc) (important)
5. Go into Settings > Advanced Settings > Developer Mode. Turn on USB debugging and turn on OEM Unlock.
6. Find out what version of Android Miui you are operating on. To do this go to Settings, About phone. Take a Screenshot (volume down & power) you may need these numbers later. If you are operating on Android 9.xx, this is good. For me personally, I had MIUI Global 188.8.131.52 PGGMIXM & 9 PPR1.180610.011
7. Put your sim card back in your old phone and enjoy the last week with your phone. Backup your stuff however you want to. If you've signed in to Google's services (drive, contracts, photos, etc), it should be all there. You can check here. https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/backups Note the date. If you are doing it to your existing phone, just plan on losing all your data plan accordingly. For me all the data on the microSD card was untouched.
8. Now that the 168 hours are up, run again "miflash_unlock.exe" > Agree > sign in > and Unlock your phone, it should work now.
(Obviously download the latest version if they have it - I put the exact file name for the files I used for reference)
19. Unplug the phone. Press and hold Power and Volume UP. When it reboots, you can let go of the power button when it vibrates or you see the RedMi text (but still keep holding the Volume Up button) until you see this menu:
Note the little "<<==" RIGHT of the option.
20. Select [Recovery Mode] by following which button it says to push to navigate. Then hitting the Volume DOWN Button
This will boot you into TWRP (AKA "any non-CFW Android 9 recovery"). The intro flash screen looks like this:
21. Select WIPE > Advanced Wipe > Select: System & Cache & Dalvic Cache > Swipe to wipe.
22. Hit the Home button on your phone. Move over to the PC.
23. On the PC copy over "begonia-A10-CFW_20200530.zip" to someplace on the internal or SD memory.
24. On the PC copy over "PixelExperience_Plus_begonia-10.0-20200714-2146-OFFICIAL.zip" to someplace on the internal or SD memory.
25. Go into Install > begonia-A10-CFW_20200530.zip then go back and
26. Go into Install > Pixel Experience Rom (for me is was PixelExperience_Plus_begonia-10.0-20200714-2146-OFFICIAL.zip) Should take a few minutes.
27. Hit Home
28. Select WIPE > Format Data > type "yes" (tap checkmark)
29 . Reboot > Bootloader
30. This will reboot the phone back into Fastboot mode. Then on the PC type this:
* April Patch, well, thats expected, nothing new.
