    Hi all,

    As we known, Ivan developed a Kitkat ROM recently, and on 14.11.2013, he updated this ROM with dualboot support and rooted.

    I successful installed this ROM on my Mi2. So I decide to share some experiences of mine when I install this.

    First, you could download all the necessary file in the following link: https://mega.co.nz/#F!wFdB1bwS!yHbTLjH3YaMsuI4Eh26gug

    In this folder, there are 4 file:

    1. Mi2-2S-recovery-2013-11-13-en.zip, is the new Ivan recovery that supported Dualboot

    2. aosp-aries-20131114...zip, is the Kitkat ROM, certainly :D

    3. PA_gapps-modular-mini...zip, is the small PA gapps, we need it for flash Google services (My experience is that, the Full PA Gapps not work, but the Mini PA Gapps work well, don’t know why :D)

    4. UPDATE-SuperSU-V1.51.zip, is the ROOT file

    Let’s begin, I assume that you already have M1cha’CWM recovery and true dual boot enabled,

    Step 1: Reboot to current recovery, select install zip from SD card, browse to folder that you have download the Mi2-2S-recovery-2013-11-13-en.zip above, flash it so you will have new Ivan’s recovery (If you have true dual boot enabled as mine, the device will ask you which system you would like to install new recovery, choose system 1 – assume that in system 1 is your default MIUI ROM, and system 2 is where you want to install Kitkat ROM)

    Step 2: After flashed Ivan’s recovery, reboot and enter recovery again, wipe data, cache and dalvik cache on system 2, then choose install ROM from zip file, browse to folder that you have downloaded aosp-aries-20131114…zip, flash this ROM. After completed, you can flash UPDATE-SuperSU-V1.51.zip and PA_Gapps-Modular-mini…zip. (You choose system 2 when prompted)

    Step 3: Go to advanced menu of recovery, change default system to system 2. Reboot and enjoy new Kitkat ROM with Gapps and Rooted :D,

    Sorry for no pictures, but it’s not too difficult, so I hope that all of you will understand,

    Lastly, Thank Ivan for the ROM, M1cha for recovery and @cvncbn92 for inspired me to post the guide here,

    I’m just a normal user not a Pro, so sorry if anything not clear, and sorry for my Bad English :D,

    Hope everyone could enjoy the Kitkat taste on Xiaomi Mi2 (s)

    P/S: some screenshot from my Mi2

    Hi,
    thanks for your clear instructions. They are very helpful for someone who wants to try the new android version safely. I have a couple of questions for you:
    1. If you don’t have TDB enabled, does it matter in which System you will install the new recovery or do you have to install it in both Systems?
    2. After flashing KitKat, if you want to go back to an android 4.3.1 ROM (or any other non-4.4 ROM), can you do that using Ivan’s recovery or do you have to install again M1cha’s recovery?
    3. Would you recommend last Ivan’s KitKat ROM for daily use or only for testing? Is it stable, reliable concerning the basic functions (calling/messaging, Wifi/Mobile Data/Bluetooth, music/camera etc.) and with good battery life?
    Thanks again!

    Hi,

    1. If you dont have TBD so I think you flash normally (remember to backup your current system certainly :D), but I recommend you install M1cha Recovery first and enable TBD so that, this will not affect you current system.
    2. Yes, Ivan recovery can flash back to previous version of android (as he description)
    3. As I see now, it can be use as normal, everthing seem tobe works, but because I love MIUI so I just install it for fun :D

    It's the successor of dalvik just in time compiler, it's not yet enabled by default because there are some bugs! Art will give your phone apps a speed boost

    May be the hangouts error. Try to update to latest version of hangouts!
