Do not report bugs to Xiaomi, this is a NON official MIUI rom!

Do not report bugs here if you have not installed step by step according installation instructions!

Old thread: https://forum.xda-deveopers.com/mi-a1/development/wip-miui-9-mi-a1-t3788854
After long time, I manage to port MIUI for Mi A1 for dayly use.
I used xiaomi.eu for port and added some customization from Epic Rom
If you want to stay up to date from Epic roms, join telegram group: https://t.me/epic_roms


What works?
All I have tested

What doesn't ?

-On a small amount of devices, touchscreen is not working properly (touchscreen driver issue)--> fixed on test version
-Reading mode does not turn off if selected. You should reboot or manually move lower slider to left.
-Some apps does not illuminate notification led such as missed call and others. This is a beta base bug, not due to port.
-If you are not familiar with MIUI, do some research before posting a bug, the thread is plenty of reported bugs that are miui settings related.

Rom built in @mohancm TWRP (you don't need to flash)

First time installing MIUI, and ONLY FIRST TIME:

Reboot and let GPS lock one time
Fastboot flash userdata from Mi5x nougat with command
Code:

Xiaomi.eu for base rom used, thanks guys

F.A.Q

Why GPS/sensors are poor/slow/? Why I have other bugs non mentioned here?
You need to install ROM according installation instructions

Is required some specific firmware?
I have installed over 8.1 stock rom, I haven tested others

How to back to stock?
Restore your TWRP backup

Can I install a custom kernel?
You will break your WiFi, camera and more... maybe in a future

When do you update the rom?
When I have free time and I feel like doing it. Please don t ask for ETAs

Can you add x or y feature to the rom? Can you port from x miui rom?
No [emoji14]

VOLTE works?
Yes

Don't ask for porting question, just see old thread, ok?

Hey, great job on this, haven't tested it myself but we all appreciate your work on this!
Is there a possibility for a "cleaner" variant of this? (a version without the mods mentioned in the OP)
Personally I'd give that a try and I'm sure more people would want that as well.
Once again, thanks for working on this!

Cleaner?
Xiaomi.eu is a debloat miui custom and others are a "desired" features.

Yeah, some people might not want to use root and gapps or things mentioned in the OP.
I think you would get a greater response from the users if a variant like that existed.

    From the Moderator

    People,

    I noticed a lot of postings that are requests for help. Most of those are from newer members.

    Remember, you are the one flashing the software THAT MEANS IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure you know enough to be able to work out problems the you run into, OR ........

    You are able to articulate exactly in writing what the issues you are experiencing so we are able to provide assistance and insight. You need enough skills and understanding to do this, if you are lacking in these STUDY, READ and REREAD.

    EVEN IF you have the same phone , same model, made in the week as mine, does not mean that it will react to the new ROM that is being flashed the same. So, Caveat Emptor.

    Finally, to the more experienced people here, remember when you were a newbie, be kind, make sure you direct them to make sure they can learn how to resolve on their own.


    Thanks ~~~ oka1
