XDA Thread removed for some reason, original source: -...
@muhviehstarr Had a look at your script, looks safe enough.
If anyone wants to test it.
If your going to do this on a regular basis, maybe label the zips with what firmware there from.
Edit: - Any maybe start a thread on XDA, giving credit to yshalsager for using his zips as your starting...
[XDA] Android Oreo’s rollback protection required on phones launching with Android Pie
More like xiaomi where testing it on us whyred users, for future requirements.
Why they badly implemented it is another question? It should be disabled or allowed to be disabled with bootloader unlocked.
The xiaomi devices with ARB: - Redmi Note 5, Mi 6X and Redmi 6 Pro.
Xiaomi.eu roms for WHYRED have the firmware removed, so as not to trigger it.
Don't know about the other two?
@ingbrzy have you removed firmware from them devices as well?
[OBSOLETE] @yshalsager As of 8.8.16 flashable TWRP non ARB Firmware now available see thread.
Updating Modem, Bluetooth and DSP! ~~~ Without triggering ARP on WHYRED!
For anyone on customs rom and need to updated the above partitions?
The commands to flash them in fastboot are: -
You have an Anti 4 triggered rom.
Don't flash any older MIUI roms/firmware with Anti 3 or you will brick your device.
You can flash any custom rom you choose, just avoid downgrading your firmware.
See this XDA thread, I already linked, for means to flash twrp and/or enable fastboot commands.
Xiaomi.eu 8.7.12v2 didn't have firmware included so should not have triggered ARP!
You can test with this command:-
fastboot getvar anti
If it is still three, you can flash whatever rom, you please.
If it returns 4, be-careful to only flash anti 4 roms or firmware.
Read up on...
Accounts can only be used once to unbrick a device.
Just have patients, if you requested permission on the official forums.
Your only "fugged huh" if you flashed a recent MIUI Rom or Firmware.
You can test your device with this command: -
fastboot getvar anti
If it returns 3 your fine. 4 and ARP has been triggered.
Just don't flash MIUI with updated firmware in the rom or updated firmware zips.
What device have you got?
At present the only device effected is RN5 WHYRED!
But it could be rolled out to other Xiaomi devices as well.
