When you root, this tool is installing TWRP? Can I replace twpr.img and Magisk zip's with the newer versions?

Update: I contacted Aridane and he said yes.

Yihaaaaa , thanks a lot :)

since the official Oreo 8.1 update (OTA) I had random reboots.
and now with last October update (66 Mb OTA) , the device was complete messed up , SYSTEM UI Stopped . and again and again.
a normal factory reset didn't fix that issue.

So, now, with this tool I mentioned to re-flash the original stock rom :))))
And till now , NO System UI issues ...
Only this, the october OTA update was offered again , download ok ,but I can't install it.
So for me not a serious problem, but if someone knows how to fix that , always welcome ;)

Keep up the good work,
Greetz, Phil from Belgium

Hey! Here is a noob-ish question I'd like to ask. Does this tool have a way to open BL without purging everything, or I'll have to do the manual volume down key thingy? And if I've managed to root my device with magisk, can I relock my BL?

does it work for a mi a1 with a boot loop and a locked bootloader?
Yes, put your phone on fastboot (power and volume down), execute MiA1 tool. install drivers, connect your phone, click on unlock bootloader and say goodbye to the boot loop, your phone will be reset to factory

    IMPORTANT: SINCE MAY OTA UPDATE, DATA IS WIPED IN THE BOOTLOADER UNLOCKING PROCESS.




    This is a simple tool to do the typical actions in adb/fastboot with a Graphical User Interface.
    if you have any suggestion to add to the tool or any problem you can contact me in telegram : AridaneAM

    • Button to download and transfer some modules.

    Do you know anything about the fix to eliminate the white dots from the hdr+ photos? Its visible on yellow, white, blue backgrounds.

    Sent from my Xiaomi Mi A1 using XDA Labs
    It's a hdr + process problem. Anyway you have to zoom to realize.

    Just remove the spaces

    While this looks super streamlined and easy, i dont think i want to use it as there appears to be no source code available and it could be doing malicious things to my phone.

    Probably not, but i am not risking anything over it

    Does anyone use it?

    I suppose that i can not put links or external forum name, but you can search that is the same program that I posted in a Spanish forum with 90.000 views in the post. First it was a root guide, next a script in .bat and now a program en visual C#.
