My modified Pixelify apk to trick Netflix into enables Dolby Vision/Atmos. Use the same guide as OP or this ( https://xiaomiui.net/how-to-enable-hdr-in-netflix-for-unsupported-devices-34106/ ) but in Device to Spoof drop-menu you must choose "2201122C" instead of Pixel 6 Pro. Clear Netflix data, login again. Enjoy!
This can be used also for MIX Fold 2/Xiaomi 12S/12S Pro/future Xiaomi devices with this bug.

I am just saying this as people may feel that they have to root to use Netflix, when they don't.
I root myself but do not bother with any Netflix mods and so I just wanted to make sure people don't get the wrong idea.

Realme 6 Pro
ok, so I finally figured out how to do this all.
sorry the screen shots are in Korean, I'm too lazy to go back and change the language but you can still see the important stuff,
like the device name, DRM L1, resolution FHD, and HDR 10 support.

Basically, you add build prop value so that the netflix would use L1 instead of L3,
then you spoof the device to pixel 6 pro to deal with 12s ultra not being officially supported by netflix (which requires to use hdr)

MagiskHide Props
LSposed Zygisk
Termux
Pixelify Google Photo

These are what you need, install magiskhide pros and lsposed module on magisk, then reboot the device.

Use termux to type in following commands,

su
props
5
n
ro.netflix.bsp_rev
Q8450-34634-1

you are basically getting super user permission, launch MagiskHide Props menu,
5 for add/edit custom build.prop, n for new,
then name and value for the entry we need.
Once it is done, it will ask you to reboot, so reboot the device.

Then, go to lsposed, enable Pixelify GPhotos module, and check netflix app.
Remove all data on your netflix app, then log back in to your accont.

Now you should see your device spoofed as Pixel 6 pro using 12S Ultra's L1 DRM,
giving all what you need :)

Big shoutout to blacksoul for providing build.prop value, it was a great shortcut from there to figure out how to set up.
not working for me on realme 6 pro please let me know to fix it, there may be other ways to fix it

Can confirm this works on Pixel Experience Plus 13 running on Redmi Note 11 global. But couldn't get HDR to work (Although the chipset on this thing doesn't really support HDR, which is to say the SD680)

Tried Blacksoulxxx's modded Pixelify and choosing "2201122C", but did not work and showed L3

I'll try the unlocker again sometime soon when I feel like it and I'll come back here, for now I'll stick with this one

I see that you didn't changed the model on Pixelify gphotos app. I'd suggest try again but before logging back to netflix, open the pixelify gphotos then choose p6 pro, and disable spoof only g photos. Reboot and that should do the trick

Why do people try the hard way, if the easy way also works? Its mutch easier to install the unlocker module, than do the steps with lsposed. And as i did it i read about, that other xiaomi phones should also work with the unlocker module.

Because I tried the unlocker first and it didn't work. Your mileage may vary and the lsposed one worked for me, idk maybe I didn't followed the steps correctly on the first one

    I'm using Dev ROM now, it started to support full HD in NF. And I heard xiaomi will officially support this next month. Let's just wait for new system update.

    I found a New Way. Update to 13.0.9, attention you must install the official twrp, unofficial dont work for me. Than you have l1 support, but no HDR. Than install the unlocker, choose number 1 and you have HDR support with dolby vision. You dont need anymore to spoof your device to another one.
