When doing the manual way and rebooting my phone, the system launcher is stuck on "Just a sec..." infinitely.
I am on a Mi 9T Pro and tried it both on the latest weekly build and the latest stable build, same result both times.

Edit: I am on Orangefox recovery.

Launcher version?
Command adb?
Thanks.... :)

I did this adb procedure:

-> Launcher: MIUI System Launcher ALPHA-4.17.0.1668-04031837 from this link (https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/xiaom...-launcher-alpha-4-17-0-1668-04031837-release/)
-> Unsing minimal_adb_fastboot v1.4 (https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790)
-> Windows 10

1° - Go to developer settings and enable "Developer Options", "USB Debugging" and "Install via USB"

2° - Connect your phone over USB cable

3° - If you are using Minimal_adb_fastboot, just click on "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" icon.

If you are using another adb go to adb folder on your PC, hold shift and do a right click on any blank space and select "open a cmd over here" (this message could be different, like "cmd", "command window", "Power Shell")

4° - Type adb devices

A popup message on your device will apear asking permission, you will click on grant
after this type again adb devices to see if your device id appear like this:

5° - finally type "adb install ", go to your downloaded apk and drag it to cmd window. If you are stucked on any problem, put " after and before a location of your apk, ex:
adb install c:\User\Danilo\Desktop\MiuiLauncher.apk -> adb install "c:\User\Danilo\Desktop\MiuiLauncher.apk"

If you have a "Success" message on adb window its finnaly done, but if you have another problem, ask over here :D

I flashed the zip file on RN8 and nothing changed at all.
The launcher is working, but I didn't get the new animation:(

Hi .. I have updated the mount routine ... can you test it please ?

And please can you check if you have enabled in TWRP "mount system as read only" ?

- start TWRP
- Mount
- check if "Mount system partition read only" is enabled - it should not

Thank you and have a nice day

Sur SAI, vous irez dans: Paramètres (une icône d'engrenage sur le côté inférieur droit) -> installateur (une icône de hashtag) et vous sélectionnerez "enraciné (nécessite la racine)".
Obs: you did installed a magisk only to get a root access. I chose this method because its a simple to install and revert if you need.

4º You will click on installer option on SAI (its a "Y" arrow on bottom) and you will select "install APKs". Go to Miui LAuncher file that you have downloaded. After you select a properly apk, SAI will ask for root access, you will grant and a app will be installed.

Hello, SAI not work for me, il do select MIUI optimisation in developper mode but this option is not in. And when i select "installer and i will select "rooted (requires root)". i have "
error : unable to get root access"

The katerpanne method works but I would like to use SAI. How did you get root rights?

You can use magisk. I described on #23 comment how you can install a new launcher over magisk root and SAI.
PS: the fastest and sample way is a adb install. It's described too on this thread.

You are awesome. Your zip now works like a charm.

Hi can you post the logfile… twrp - advanced - copy logfile

Are you sure that the launcher is replaced? The challenge is to mount the filesystem. On mi9 it is system_root on other it is system… and I think if you ennable in twrp system as read only, the launcher cant be replaced

@Henry & dani do you have the same phones?

I am sure, checking the file itself and the logs.
And yes it is system_root for me.
I have Resmi note8

Tried the adb method. Same results
Lets check and try a few things:
After do a adb procedure and get a success message
Go to "settings->Apps->Manage Apps->System Launcher"
Check if you have the latest version (4.17.0.1668...)

If you dont have the latest version, try to do the adb install with this version.
2° If are all ok with your version, go to "Settings-> Additional Settings-> Full Screen display" and check if you have the option "hide full screen indicator", if you have, disable-it and new gestures it will begin to work

Yes and no, let me explain. I have one MI9T pro but my brother have one Redmi Note 8. Some tests on a week ago I did on both. This last zip I did only on my Mi9T

Thanks for the instructions. After checking the version, it is indeed 4.17.0...
I went to additional settings -> full screen display, and I couldn't find "hide full screen indicator"

I tried installing it. Did it manual with a good explorer. Changed also permission. After reboot it keeps crashing on latest beta rom 20.3.27 on my mi 9t pro. Any suggestion?

Hi see my first post. On Mi9 the launcher from 1st march is working. Try the different versions
