Some more install questions

Postby Rizzo » 19 Apr 2017, 14:01

Hi.

When I bought the phone I unlocked it, installed twrp 3.0.2 and sMiui v7 6.5.12. Afterwards i tried Resurrection Remix 5.8.1 (Android 7.1.1). This rom is still on my phone.

Now I want to try the new Miui. I still have some questions about how to install:

1. Should I first install a new TWRP?? Which one? on https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=50678 I see a lot of different ones.
2. Should I first install an older version? I read on the forum "Install MIUI 6.12.22 before updating to Android 7.0". Is this still needed? Where can i find this version?
3. My bootloader will be locked when upgrading right?
4. I have made a Nandroid backup of my rom with twrp, but how can I restore later when I cannot enter twrp anymore because of locked bootloader?

I hope you can help me understand better.

In case your bootloader gets locked again you will have to unlock it by official procedure. When you dont do that, you will not be able to install custom ROMs or TWRP.

I would suggest the following:
---CREATE MIUI BACKUP BEFORE YOU DO THIS
1. Download latest China Dev ROM from http://en.miui.com/a-234.html for your device.
2. Install this ROM in Fastboot
3. Unlock your phone in case it gets locked again (official procedure)
4. Flash latest TWRP Recovery (just check for latest upload date)
5. Flash latest Custom ROM Version of globeROM or any other custom ROM.
-- NOW YOU CAN RESTORE MIUI BACKUP IF YOU WANT

You can try...
But doing the way I described is 100 % safe.
