You can go to https://en.miui.com/unlock/index.html to download software to unlock bootloader. (check here on xda, how you can unlock.. ;-)).
It's great that there are already roms that can be flashed. Unfortunately, I lack the knowledge of how to do it - I found a description for mi pad 5 below:Just installed this GSI: https://github.com/ponces/treble_build_pe/releases/
Seems to work fine so far, although, it for some reason thinks there's always a physical keyboard connected, so I had to make the on-screen keyboard always enabled.
You can also force the display to use 144hz with the GSI under Phh Treble Settings > Misc features > Force FPS
Hi there !Yesterday I've installed the PixelExperience on my Pad 6 Pro.
Installation wasn't as straight forward as you'd like, since the recovery is in chinese.
Biggest pitfall: Please make sure to use a current version of the Google Platform Tools (adb, etc.).
I've used the files included in MiFlash 2022.05.07 and they worked. The ones I've used before just threw some unrelated errors that I spent hours researching to no avail.
After the flash, as _Hinnie_ mentioned, it thinks there is a physical keyboard attached so you have to skip the setup-wizard and go to the settings and enable the on-screen keyboard when a hardware keyboard is attached.
-> so thats no problem
For bluetooth audio to work, you need to activate the setting "Use System Wide BT HAL" in "Phh Treble Settings".
As far as I can tell, everything works like a charm. Didn't find anything broken as of yet.
Rooting the device using Magisk worked as well, I've downloaded the fastboot ROM from MIUI directly to get the correct vbimage.img and boot.img to work with.
I love this tablet without this shi**y MIUI.
fastboot rom, flash_all.batHi everyone, i am currently flashing paranoid topaz for liuqin but i have a question :
since i removed partition b to fit the flash of the custom rom how can i restore Chinese miui in case i want to sell the tablet?
I tried mi flash but it gives error missing boot_ab partition.
Is there a way to restore the original partitions? I thought miflash would do that in automatic...
if you have downloaded any programs to verify compatibility, forget about them. Do as it is written in this thread and you will install GSI. First you must have an unlocked system.
