Definitely. There's so many changes between this two versions, that it's unlikely to boot afery dirty flash.

Hi,

Good Work! 8.5.17 works quite well on MiMix2s! The only thing I discovered is that:

- Calender Settings (I use multiple calendars) are changing from time to time
- Background image carousel does not work

Face recognition is working quite well! Thanks!

Got the bootloop on my MI5 :( Didn't have backup of Data.
Now the Data backup doesn't seem to work even for the old 8.4.4 version. The 8.5.3 update might have changed something in there so now I'm in bootloop whenever I restore my Data backup.
I've tried deleting lockscreen files as was suggested in the thread but it didn't work for me..

Does anybody know what needs to be changed in my Data backup so I can at least get back to my beloved 8.4.4?

I have fixed boot loop on mi 5 in following way:

1. Backup data in twrp
2. Wipe: system, data, cache, dalvik cache
3. Reboot into system
4. Reboot into twrp
5. Restore data
6. Remove lockscreen password by removing following files in /data/system
gatekeeper.password.key
gatekeeper.pattern.key
locksettings.db
locksettings.db-shm
locksettings.db-wal

May be wiping data is not necessary, but just need to remove lockscreen password.

Hi,
How did you get to step 3 after wiping system on step 2?

Installed 8.5.17 on mi5.

Anybody else getting "unsupported device" errors in Pokemon Go since upgrading a Mi5 to android 8?

Is it necessary to clean installation and format data from 3.26 (7.0) to 5.17 (8.0) on Mi5?

I'm using Redmi 5 Plus. Currently I don't have Face unlock feature. In TWRP, I can backup "cust" partition, but it's not appear in "Wipe" menu. I can't manually delete this partition using root explorer nor TWRP file manager. So, can I run this fastboot command:

fastboot erase cust

without any worries? Can I restore this partition from "cust" TWRP backup?

Thanks, I'm looking for your answer.

PIP works perfectly with listed apps below by default, except YouTube app, because for YouTube RED subscription needed to use PIP

8.4.12 is working great on my Kenzo, it got split screen already, I skiped 8.4.19 based on feedbacks on 8.4.19 thread, and 8.4.26 is unuseable due to process system hang up.
Then, the best EU for kenzo is 8.4.12?

Hi

I installed manually 8.5.17 on my Mi Mix 2s because OTA on existing 8.5.10 do not recognize new version.

So downloaded and installed via TRWP. But on device after successfully install it shows 8.5.10 instead new one.

Rebooted again and wiped dalvik and cache.
But still 8.5.10 shown.

What's wrong ?
Installing was successful without any errors

just dirty updated to last 8.5.17 from 8.4.4, no issues (many of you reported bootloops), i made a couple of backup but i'm glad i don't need them. i have to say, from when i bought my mi5 i did 2 major upgrades (nougat and oreo) and i never had to wipe anything, always dirty flashed. so, thanks!!
