First, make sure you have unlocked bootloader. If you're on official global MIUI12 Rom, you don't need to install firmware.
Also you cannot install Global Official Rom with TWRP... I read someone installed stock ota with TWRP, but someone other goes in bootloap. So i suggest you to not use stock rom with twrp.

And... if you not sure about what you're doing, first read, read, read.... and when you're sure, flash the rom.

thanks for your precious answers! I've done these to my previous phone (mi note 3) but I need to be sure of something before going out in the woods again.

1 week time was up today and tomorrow I'll unlock my phone's bootloader. I'll use adb to install twrp and then it seems nothing different from my last time.

Only question is how I'll go back to stock ROM if I want to and I'll search for it. thanks again for all your efforts and answers!

You can return stock in any moment with an official stock ROM in Fastboot version, and using XiaoMiFlash tool. So don't worry about it.

Been using this ROM for a few days. Noticed that the phone wakes a lot in my pocket, fingerprint sensor is more miss than hit, the ability to customize buttons (eg long press power button for flash) and advanced reboot do not work.

The ROM is great though I am experiencing some issues that maybe someone can help with?

Is it normal for the fingerprint reader to barely work? It seems like your change-log and other people are implying it works much better now. In general, am I doing something wrong with these AOSP ROMs? None of them; from this ROM, Bliss, Arrow, CrDroid, etc. give me a good experience with the fingerprint reader...

Edit: Realized you have a walk-through on a clean install to fix this, I will try this and see if it fixes it.

I've made a clean install (even wipe system and then sideload), restored google apps but not settings so settings are fresh, too.

this is a very good rom with a nice experience (specially after evo x) but finger print reader is UNusable for me even though I made a clean install. I tried to have success by deleting fingerprints, reassigning my fingers, to try under night light or not. even I assigned my both thumbs twice so may be it can help but no.

there is a serious problem that I almost have success 1/20th to unlock my device by fingerprint reader. It's so sad for such a succesful rom.

thanks.

I read your feedback, all of them. I can confirm you that before uploading a new rom, i test it by myself for almost a couple of days. Also I have 2 dear friends helping me testing Rom. What I want to say is that if I wrote in changelog that a bug is fixed or a feature improved, this is true for me and testers. I realized in my experience that our damn phone uses different fingerprint sensor for various model (maybe due to different manufacturers). Someone (as me) find the fingerprint really fast and stable, never missing a tap, and someone other horrible. Also, who says me having FOD problem, often has some screen protector.
After months of studies and researches... believe me .. idk what else to do... Every time I try some modification, fingerprint stop working for me or for someone other. On the whole Pixel Experience Rom scenario, only 2 devices has this damn fingerprint sensor... Our beloved Mi9Lite and Mi9SE. Either has FOD problems with PixelExperiencr problems.... But not on all device....
Some post ago I wrote a little tutorial to help you having a very clean installation. So before reporting me that FOD (the only thing) is not working, if you have time, please, follow this guide.

By now, I decided to not spend other time on fingerprint sensor because I can use this time for Android 11 development (when PE source will be ready) and especially I think I can't make other progresses on Android 10 PE Rom.

If you have problems with Fingerprint, you're free to follow my little tutorial, or stay without Fingerprint, or prefer other Rom that make you happy more.

Thanks for your support.

Hiya,
this is looking good, thank you for your hard work!
I'm thinking about switching to this from Miui 11.1, still on a pretty old security patch and I'd believe firmware version. I'm unlocked though and have TWRP installed. Is there anything to worry about, like do I have to have a certain firmware version or something, or can I just happily flash away? ?

    The Rom is very good but it has nothing of Plus, this is Pixel just because it does not have any section to personalize it, but even so, very good work
    Plus edition, as Normal one, hasn't any possibility to customize ROM. The mission of the team is to take ROM pure, as Pixel. Plus edition has only some little things as custom rules, increasing ringtones, percentage inside battery... And some other little things under the box... Next week I'll try to release the 2 versions Normal and Plus and let you decide which one install.
    Hope the make it official asap [emoji6]
