Why are you quoting me? Kernel source is completely off topic.

Anyway I answered my own question, the difference is that Mi A1 uses what's called a skip_initrd system, I won't go into technical details here because nobody will understand. It's probably possible to port MIUI though, if someone wants to. I would but I don't want people to annoy me with irrelevant things.

What You dont understand? Difference partitions. Change partitions if You can do it and dont complain.

Because Mi A1 uses an A/B partition format ...Xiaomi Mi A1 comes with two set of partitions, where one set is utilized when the device is active, while the other set comes into play whenever a new update is to be applied. New updates are downloaded and installed onto the inactive slots while the active slots continue to do their work in keeping the phone switched on and working.

And that is EXACTLY how it was on MI3/MI4 when they initially release these phones. Later, due to luck of the available space on 16 Gb version, they are merged them. I am absolutely confident repartitioning could be done with help of Qualcomm tools. After that ROM for 5x could be flashed in TWRP. Result could be nonfunctional LTE Band 20 if kernel module on MIUI disables it ;-) No interest for me as I am perfectly fine with "pure" Android on A1 and with latest MIUI on my second still very usable MI4 (unbelievable great phone I am using for 3+ years and it is still very much like new)

Beside the point. I was quoted with an answer that was unrelated to my post.

On to the point - the device is technically unbrickable, if you're willing to take apart the device (EDL kick with testpoint is always possible, even with destroyed bootloader) which you can use qualcomm tool to recover.

Repartitioning is easy, I already did it with the Treble conversion project.

Anyway, I've started preliminary work on porting MIUI 10 from Redmi S2 (since it's 8.1 base) - I don't want to go back to 7.x which may be insecure or lack API features. I have missed MIUI, and I plan to get the Poco F1 towards the end of the year.
