None of the sensors work after installing the custom ROM

Hi All,

after installing MIUI 10 on my Mi Note 3, all the sensors stopped working. reading through some forums, it seems it's got something to do with the persist partition.
I've flashed persist.img from an official recovery image using TWRP (flashing a fastboot image with miFlash doesn't work as it says I'm not authorized!) but still not working.
Anyone else with the same issue and any ideas on how to fix it?
Really appreciate any help.

Thanks

I don't know which version of TWRP you have, but it could be you should try to flash the newest TWRP, after it you should try to flash the newest ROM again. On my mi note 3 I had the same problem.

Hi Ingmar,

Any chance you could send me a TWRP backup of your persist partition as I've tried all I could think of and still have the same issue...

Thanks

Hi,
follow the steps in the video very carefully
Good luck, werty
Hi werty,

My problem with this is that I can't flash the persist partition in EDL mode as Miflash says my Mi account isn't authorized ( can't find a way to get it authorized either).
The only way I managed to flash persist.img is by using TWRP, but the sensors still don't work, hence I would appreciate if someone could send me a TWRP backup of the persist partition on a working Mi Note 3...

Hi, change the extension of the file to .zip and flash it in Twrp
