Why can't I find Redmi Note 5 in MIUI 12 download page? I remember than a lot of time ago I installed it on my redmi note 5 and now I can't find it anymore.
Another question: will miui 12.5 be developed for whyred?
Actually this device is obsolete and no one will make an effort anymore. The last beta is as stable as can be and I never had any problems. Meanwhile I changed to LOS 17.1 with the redmi note5 - it's really good working.
No bootloop issues on the global official MIUI 12 build here coming from Lineage 17.1 and using the latest official TWRP recovery.
I have rooted the global MIUI 12 release with Magisk 22 and have debloated using root uninstaller to freeze all of the unneccesary Xiaomi packages.
It has been 100% stable so far for me and I have yet to find any bugs.
I would much rather run the xiaomi.eu rom too though, but unless the devs take the time to create one from the final MIUI 12 global rom, I guess the fun is over.
It is a shame to see our whyred EOLed. The device is still perfectly usable, especially the 4/6GB ram models.
PS. Lineage 17.1 worked great as well and I had been running variations of lineage on the phone for a couple years, I just needed Android Auto to work now that I have a new vehicle. For me, that bug was a show-stopper.
Edit: If any of you guys do try the MIUI 12.5 port linked to above, and have the ability to test android auto with a compatible headunit, please let me know if it works. I'd love to give that a spin. I just don't have a lot of time to test and chase bugs right now. Thanks!
