Hello all,

Here something really annoying.. when we can't see the status bar in dark mode... :(

But @Mikanoshi found a way to fix this issue on MIUI 11 => https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/20-3-26-last-miui-11.55066/post-534988

On MIUI 12, it still working but not fully...

INFO: "Fixed" in 20.5.28, it's now useless to use one of my workarounds...

== Available workarounds ==

-------------- "Root" solution is preferred! --------------

>> You should enable the dark mode option before using "Root" workaround <<

- "Root" solution:

-=> I recommend to install "Termux" app (available on Google Play Store) and open it at least once before installing my Magisk module. ;)

Install this Magisk module (in Magisk Manager app) => MIUI-Fix_Global_Dark_Mode_v3-Magisk.zip

Features:

1) Auto-apply the fix after install, no need to reboot your phone
2) Auto-apply the fix after a phone's reboot (if needed)
3) To apply the fix via Termux app, type: dmfix

IMPORTANT
== What you need to know ==

* MIUI 11 ROM: You need to re-apply the "dmfix" Termux' command or reboot your phone IF you go in "Dark mode" settings.

* MIUI 12 ROM: You need to re-apply the "dmfix" Termux' command or reboot your phone IF you disable/re-enable dark mode option.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

>> You MUST enable the dark mode option before using "TWRP" workaround <<

- "TWRP" solution:

-=> If you rooted your phone, I recommend to install "Termux" app (available on Google Play Store) and open it at least once before installing my zip. ;)

Install this zip in TWRP => TWRP_Fix_Global_Dark_Mode_v1.4.2.zip

IMPORTANT
== What you need to know ==

* MIUI 11 ROM: You need to re-apply the "dmfix" Termux' command (if rooted) or reinstall the zip in TWRP IF you go in "Dark mode" settings.

* MIUI 12 ROM: You need to re-apply the "dmfix" Termux' command (if rooted) or reinstall the zip in TWRP IF you disable/re-enable dark mode option.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

== TIPS ==
---- for MIUI 12 ----

1) You may still need to disable some apps in "Individual apps" menu in 'Dark mode' settings if some texts/images are not correctly visible...

2) For "Google" app, please install beta version (https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/dark-mode-and-notification-bar.55643/post-541991) and change "Theme" option in app's settings to "System detection" or "Dark" to fix status bar color.


Enjoy!
:)

Yep, certain apps are still handled incorrectly... We'll keep you posted if we find out a way to solve it.
