Yes, there is a way that I have checked and it works perfect. I leave you the steps that I followed.

►►► HOW TO USE GESTURE NAVIGATION WITH THIRD-PARTY LAUNCHERS IN ANDROID 11 ◄◄◄

1. First it is important to have one of the apps recommended here in the forum installed:​
- Infinity Gestures​
- Fluid Navigation Gestures (The one I chose)​

2. Reboot your phone in recovery mode.​

3. If you use:​
- Orange Fox: You go to MENU > MOUNT and check the boxes for CACHE, SYSTEM, DATA.
- TWRP: You go to MOUNT and check only the boxes for CACHE, SYSTEM, DATA.
In both cases the ENABLE MTP option is activated, check it just in case.


4. Use MinimalADB & Fastboot or if you want, Platformtools to open a command console.​

5. You write without quotes "adb devices", you hit ENTER and you wait for it to detect your phone.​

6. Without quotes, put the command "adb pull /system/build.prop" and hit ENTER.​

7. In the MinimalADB or Platformtools folder you will now see a file with an unknown extension called "build.prop". You give it RIGHT CLICK > EDIT or RIGHT CLICK > OPEN WITH > NOTEBOOK (or any other editor of your choice).​

8. You go to the end of the file and ADD without the quotes a last line that says "qemu.hw.mainkeys=1"

9. SAVE the changes and CLOSE the editor. You return to the command console.​

10. In the command console you write without quotes "adb push build.prop /system/" and press ENTER.​

11. Now you have to reboot your phone. Once it starts you will see that you no longer have the navigation bar (buttons).​

12. You open the gesture app that you have downloaded, you block it so that the task is not deleted (apply the padlock), you grant the app all the permissions it asks for. In addition, you must go to APP INFORMATION > BATTERY SAVER and there choose the first option "NO RESTRICTIONS" as well as see that the AUTOMATIC START option is ACTIVATED.​

13. Enjoy gesture navigation with third-party launchers.​

unfortunately this doesn't work for me..
is it the same for anybody else?

Im struggling with media notificaiton widget bug and don't wanna do ADB sideload thing because it might cause even more problems down the line in future updates. Can we expect rom hotfix or anything like that anytime soon?

I use stable channel for a reason and Google/Xiaomi manages to break something this big in stable. WTF are these multi-billion companies even doing in their QA program?

We need to flash, but there is an updater that warn you, download the file, and try to reboot to TWRP to install it.

Hello guys, I have a mi8 explorer edition. I'm on MIUI 12.1 (20.9.4) weekly, can I upgrade on 12.5 stable without format data? It's technically not an downgrade. Does anyone have experience with it?

It is written in red in the second post of the thread that you should format data if you come from the weekly so....

Yeah because weekly has in most case a higher version as stable. But in this case the stable version is higher as the weekly one...

Are you sure they handle a QA program for that?....

Thanks for answer, is there any manual for this?
How often should I expect updates and stress of data loss? :D
Do we lose data or not? :)

Our ROMs features (Whats not in Global):
  • MIUI Contacts and Dialer
  • More shortcuts on left lockscreen
  • No any Chinese character under the full system

I have a question about these 3 points.
  1. Can I see the time someone called?, or atleast how many minutes/hours ago?
  2. Can I change these shorcuts?

Lock Screen Shortcuts: Settings -> Lock screen -> Side panel shortcuts
App vault: Settings -> Apps -> Manage apps -> App vault -> Uninstall updates

Lock Screen Shortcuts: Settings -> Lock screen -> Side panel shortcuts
App vault: Settings -> Apps -> Manage apps -> App vault -> Uninstall updates

Lockscreen: Changed the shortcuts thanks! (side question can I change/remove those icons on the bottom, like Wallpaper Carousel?)
App Vault: No updates to uninstall, this is the stock app as found in MIUI Stable. Also how to revoke permissions for this app (withdraw consent), clearing data does not work.

*Talking about withdraw of consent, in some apps I didn't consent and the apps work fine (mostly lacking online functions). But now everytime I open those apps it gives the same consent pop-ups I already declined (for instance the Mi Video app). I find this annoying and pushy, not something I would expect in a MIUI EU rom.

  1. Can I see the time someone called?, or atleast how many minutes/hours ago?

Should I report this on the Chinese MIUI forum?

Q: Is there a volume buttons to wake function hidden somewhere?

Change? No. Remove, well, besides the flashlight shortcut, any other shortcut there is only visible if the relevant app is installed.
For next release, I'll make sure it's not visible if the relevant app is disabled, so then you'll be able to hide it by disabling "Mi Wallpaper Carousel" app altogether in Settings -> Apps -> Manage apps.

App Vault: No updates to uninstall, this is the stock app as found in MIUI Stable. Also how to revoke permissions for this app (withdraw consent), clearing data does not work.
What you see is an image, not the actual app vault. You probably declined the initial terms of use screen, so it's stuck on that image or something.
You shouldn't decline, nor you can't revoke anything for this app, it's a China ROM app.
You can install the Global App vault from Play Store if you want, it'll substitute the China ROM one...
If you keep declining and revoking permissions for system apps, you'll face issues. Might want to consider a non-MIUI ROM if you're so touchy about those permission requests.

*Talking about withdraw of consent, in some apps I didn't consent and the apps work fine (mostly lacking online functions). But now everytime I open those apps it gives the same consent pop-ups I already declined (for instance the Mi Video app).
Can't help you with that. Mi Video has online functions as of our latest releases so consent is required. Otherwise, don't use the app.

I find this annoying and pushy, not something I would expect in a MIUI EU rom.
You get what you pay for, and you pay nothing, so you'll have to live with that. I don't find this a problem as I never decline these dialogs.

  1. Can I see the time someone called?, or atleast how many minutes/hours ago?
Sure, click the arrow button next to the call. You'll see everything under "Call history" header.

Q: Is there a volume buttons to wake function hidden somewhere?
Not that I know of...

That explains why it shows the Mi Remote icon on my lockscreen.

Sounds good thanks.

Is there a reason u guys don't use the Global App Vault instead of the China ROM one?
For the record I don't decline nor revoke permission with 3d party (root) apps, just the consent pop-ups when opening the app.

Can't help you with that. Mi Video has online functions as of our latest releases so consent is required. Otherwise, don't use the app.

I just want to use the offline functions, the consent pop ups clearly states that that is possible, it just keeps nagging to consent the online part anyway.
(You already said you can't/won't change this behaviour which is fine.)

Sure, click the arrow button next to the call. You'll see everything under "Call history" header.

Ah ok got it, was expecting something on the main call screen but this works.

Not that I know of...

Too bad..


Thanks for the fast and accurate answers, I really apreciate everything you guys do for the community.

1) Because the design wasn't updated since like MIUI 10. Many prefer an App vault that gets actually updated to match newer MIUI versions.
2) Because it can always be installed by the user via Play Store. The Chinese App vault can't.

For the record I don't decline nor revoke permission with 3d party (root) apps, just the consent pop-ups when opening the app.
Then don't... this isn't our design choice...

k20 pro 12GBRAM 512GB ROM big problem when updating to Miui 2.5

Had the version
xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK20ProMI9TPro_V12.0.6.0.QFKCNXM_v12-10.
it worked perfect, very agile but I updated to
xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK20ProMI9TPro_V12.5.4.0.RFKCNXMi_v12-11.zip

and everything goes wrong

Serious Bugs
1. Heats up
2. Sudden restarts
3. Gesture navigation does not work unless I use the system's launcher, I use another launcher
4. Sound settings do not work
5. when a call comes in, it doesn't answer or stays in the background
6. everything is super slow
7. I already tried to go back to the Old version of miui.eu 12.2 but it reboots in TWPR, it only accepts the miui 12.5 ROM with many errors, it helps.

Hi folks, im new here in the Xiaomi universe. I have curently on my Mi11 the stable ROM installed. If I want to update later, I have to format my data all the time? Or simply mount the file on TWRP?

Whats happens if I have a weekly or stable version and root with Magisk and update the ROM via OTA or flash a new version via TWRP? Do I lose the root?

So I must flash Magisk after every update? I definitely think I will try the stable version to avoid reRoot the phone every week...

Yes, you have to install Magisk every time you update if root is important to you. I do not use root.
Weekly ROM =There is no obligation to update every week. It is your choice when to update

- Maybe a clean install would help for the errors
- Gestures on third party launcher won't work natively on A11 MIUI, there are some workarounds. It is not a bug, it is by design.
- To revert to an older Android version, I believe you will need to format data

With my old rom (xiaomi global) i was getting lte+ connection (or called 4g+ or 4.5g) and i was getting download and upload speeds up to 150/50mbit

With this version it feels like the rom is preferring 4g instead of 4g+, and 3g instead of 4g....

I manually go to sim card settings, select 3g preferred and then back to lte preferred, only then it connects to 4g but still no 4g+...

Is that a bug ? Any of you have a solution for this?
If this is a bug where should i report it?
Thanks for this amazing rom!
