- Coming from M, flashing a N based firmware is * required *, otherwise installation will fail. Download the latest dev fastboot package directly from Xiaomi and flash it prior to installing LineageOS or, alternatively, download and install one of the latest custom packages containing firmware only (at your own risk).
- Starting from Android 7.1.2 based builds (since April 18th), the minimal required firmware version is MIUI 7.4.11 (read more here).
I Followed instructions be carefully but still the same
tell me if i missed something
cuz i still getting error 7
came from miui 8 (nougat) bootloader unloaded twrp latest version
Not having to install them again is why people do a dirty flash. You have to install them all again, that's the point of a clean flash.Thanks, how do I back up my stuff apps ect so I dont have to install them all again
So, this won't be goodbye after all... luckily two very kind users showed up and offered me their no longer used devices for a symbolic price.Sadly, I regret to inform that I may have to drop official support for this device. The touchscreen replacement that I have received two days ago went fine, but the issue remains. I still get the random failures where touchscreen stops responding and I can't use the device as daily driver this way. I barely can use it for development either because I have to restart it over and over to get a few minutes of working touch.
This is a pity because I liked Mi 5 a lot and a big loss as mine was the 128GB version with ceramic back. Luckily I have the good old M8 dual SIM, which has been my daily driver for a while now. That said, I am not looking for a new flagship to replace Mi 5 (yes, I don't think Mi 6 can justify the price) and already thought of buying a new one, but it seems that's no longer sold. Is there any good soul out there that eventually has switched to a newer flagship and wants to sell his Mi 5?
I still have a Mi5 128 GB version in white and I dont need it anymore.
I really got to say thanks once again to you both. :highfive: I ended up buying from @mabor01 due to better shipping time and costs (and no customs involved).I've followed you through CM 13.1, LOS 14.1, and beta tested 15.
We've chatted through messenger several times.
I have the identical version, the black, ceramic 128gb. I've recently upgraded to a OnePlus 5T. I'll give you a deal if you want to continue?
