    Are the quick reply notifications and chat bubbles broken in this release?

    Yeah, bubble notifications are quick reply notifications in the drop down are all messed up in MIUI 12 - I've heard it's not something Xiaomi.eu can fix; it needs to be addressed by Xiaomi in MIUI first

    I don't mean to be pedantic, but what you're referring to is the "persist" partition - you are correct, though; messing with this will break your Widevine L1 and it's nearly impossible to get back. This partition also contains all your sensor information (accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity...

    How are notifications on this build? Do they still look terrible? i.e. the reply dropdown from the notifications screen

    Are notifications for Facebook Messenger, Messages, etc. still messed up in this version? I know it's an issue with MIUI, not sure if there's much that can be done but they look terrible and quick reply from the notifications drop down is all messed up

    MIUI 12.0 MIUI 12.0/12.1/12.2/12.5 STABLE RELEASE

    It's great to see an updated stable release based on Android 11 for the Redmi Note 8. One major thing I've noticed are the notifications both on the lock screen and notifications drop-down. The quick reply option is all messed up and notifications look strange in general, like they're not...

    MIUI 12.5 21.2.24/25

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the MiFlash tool doesn't actually flash persist.img - you'll need to extract the persist.img file from the fastboot ROM and flash it some other way. I wrote a guide here: An Easy Guide to Restoring/Repairing Your Persist Partition on Unlocked Xiaomi...

    [INFO] Confirmed Issues (Weekly) & FAQ

    Quick suggestion - in the FAQ the bit about wiping /persist recommends you flash the latest fastboot ROM to restore the partition. As far as I know, the MiFlash tool does not touch or restore the persist partition - better suggestion would be to extract persist.img from fastboot ROM and use...

    MIUI 12.5 21.2.3/4

    Thank you very much for your quick response! I guess that makes sense, although TWRP doesn't seem to do this and OrangeFox only does it with MIUI ROMs, it would seem. I realized last night that the settings for disabling encryption do not work for this ROM - however I believe the .zip for...

    MIUI 12.5 21.2.3/4

    I have a question regarding OrangeFox Recovery - when I flash a Xiaomi.eu ROM, after the flashing is complete, OrangeFox says "Beginning OrangeFox Process" and then proceeds to flash my boot image as well as vendor/fstab - I have checked in settings and even if I have all options under OTA...

    MIUI 11 MIUI 11.0 STABLE RELEASE

    Reading Mode has stopped working with sunset-sunrise (Good Night's Read) - I have to set it manually. It's only been doing this the past couple days. Can anyone else confirm? Not sure if it's a ROM issue or server side with Xiaomi...

    New Reading Mode time wrong after Daylight Savings Time on Xiaomi.eu ROM [MIUI 11 Stable 11.0.5]

    I have a bit of a weird issue here and I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this: For those of you in the USA who use Reading Mode - I've noticed that ever since us Yanks moved the clocks forward an hour on Saturday, March 8th, the Good Night's Read setting, which turns on Reading Mode...

    MIUI 11 MIUI 11.0 STABLE RELEASE

    Sorry for the dumb question - I'm still pretty new to Xiaomi.eu and currently am on the beta release - I'm thinking about flashing the stable, since I'm experiencing a few bugs on the latest release. Does the stable ROM come with security patch updates, or are we stuck with older ones until...
