I am a Redmi Note8 Pro user from China. I want a pure Android system, so I come to here. But I did not expect MTK phone has a disadvantage like this. I really hope this problem can be solved, and you guys may support this device then. Thanks

Hi,

You can find several custom ROM developped by indians
- Pixel experience
- POSP
- Evolution X
- CesiumOS
Due to the lack of NFC on their model, these ROM dont support it

They develope a bootloader to allow repairing without Xiaomi's special account.

I heard of Lineage OS 17.1 for Redmi Note 8 Pro

Developement is possible on Redmi Note 8 Pro

Seems some people want...and other don't!
Sad to see Xiaomi.eu promote monopoly...especialy from a company condamned for the destruction of employement in Europe (ICERA)

The 4 roms are on xda-developers...
First, read very carefully "Redmi Note 8 Pro - The Megathread" by agent_fabulous
It's important to avoid brick.

If you know someone who already uses SP Flashtool it would be nice...
All is at your own risk...

If I used SP flashtool several time on other devices, I don't on this Redmi Note 8 Pro

I confirm this.
In Android 9 (not working in Android 10) if you flash in fastboot (=bootloader) what is said at XDA / ...Megathread, you don't brick the phone.
I tried all XDA ROM's (all are Android 10), come back to Android 9, try next XDA Android 10, and so on. With TWRP and Magisk, without any problems.
Be careful:
- when you are in Android 9 flash what is said in XDA/Megathread (don't do it in Android 10!!!)
- read very carefully everything before proceeding; don't force anything or extrapolate
(note: all RN8Pro custom rom's are still in Alpha/Beta stage, with problems that prevent the use as daily phone).

To Xiaomi.eu
If developing RN8Pro is an adventure that you don't want to do, or you want that normal users of this forum do not risk to do, please create a thread with the main links of XDA for those who want to do it.
Is a good service that will prevent X.eu users of bricking their devices; also during this pandemic crisis shall be no service centers available to solve the problem, and this crisis shall stand at least for 3 months in each country.
Thank you for all your work

It would be great if support for the Redmi Note 8 Pro returned with the arrival of MIUI 12. The development by the community has evolved quite a bit, in addition, we already have Android 10 officially and stable on the global rom, there are already a number of custom recovery specifically for MIUI-based rom's, The great one recommended by the community is the LRTEAM TWRP, it has its version for Android 9 and for Android 10. I think the only thing necessary is to leave a post with instructions and a warning that any change is the decision of each user.

I couldn't disagree less, however, unfortunately, nobody is listening... or they just don't care.

It has been some time since the RN8PRO is not mentioned, considering that a recovery is already working perfectly (I used it to install Miui 12 China), does anyone know if support will be resumed or can I leave the forum for good?

Hi guys, 4pda users have managed to install your latest Android 10 firmware for begonia using new twrp from LR team . The only thing is that the specific sequence of steps should be followed . Please reconsider Begonia support

The steps to install:
1. Do all the wipes including Format Data ( Yes confirmation), except MicroSD,USB and reboot to TWRP
2) flash Xiaomi.eu via TWRP and boot to system
3) flash LRTeam TWRP in Fastboot mode for getting Android 10 support

The link to the original 4pda post http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=965629&view=findpost&p=91862316
Hi, but where do i find a rom for begonia. Looked all over xiaomi.eu and not one rom for begonia. Miui 11, not 12.

But if the Devs here are not willing to listen, then what is the point?
Can we speak to any on the developers here? Is there anyone willing to create roms for our begonia. I've been on the initial release of Xiaomi.eu for more then six months and eventually I had to pass to MiuiPro to be able to get miui 12 but it's just not the same. I miss the clean look and feel of the x.eu roms. Come on guys.... There are a lot of us out here in need of your help. Let people decide what to do with their phones. I have yet to see a person complaining about x.eu roms bricking their phones. If one soft/hard bricks their devices they know it's because they did something wrong.

As XIAOMI is pushing more and more MTK devices even on our territory, I think the dev's can't igore this faqt.
Pretty sure devs must ignore. This isn't their, devs, problem, that MTK are not cooperating and pretty "closed" platform. Also if no cina rom for platform, almost zero chance for eu rom. Only official global or EEA.

We have dropped support for HMnote8Pro MTK [begonia] due to a lot of bricks caused by installing TWRP or Magisk or any other mods.. MTK does not allow to boot to Fastboot if something "goes wrong" and users are forced to flash images via SPFlash Tool EDL mode which is locked by Xiaomi for few authorized accounts only.. so for safety of users, we will not release any ROMs for this device..
PS: We do not recommend buying MTK devices if you want to use our ROMs..
Still havent found a way how to do it and realized how good both device and G90T is ... Im very dissapointed with Xiaomi.EU and switching to MIUIPro ...

Hey guys. I'm a note 8pro user. So now this is goes literally one year. I rooted my phone with Magisk and I also changed the recovery menu ( to TWRP). So can we get EU ROM for note 8pro user's.
If you want a video to how to install TWRP to your phone I can give it.
We just need EU ROM. Because other custom rom can't compare to this legend.
Thank you.

You already quoted why your request won't be realized.
The Hardware(in this case the MTK chip) is the problem. It means that if there were a SD chip in Redmi Note 8 Pro, it would be a xiaomi.eu rom available for it.
I guess that as long as MTK doesn't solve this problem for costum roms like the one we can use here, xiaomi.eu wont release any new Roms for RN 8 Pro to protect you from bricking your divice(like they already said)

It's false, hardware isn't the problem...Indians even run Android 11 on RN8Pro.
Xiaomi.eu only doesn't want to support any models with Mediatek's soc.

I hope you will have enough money to buy a real smartphone powered by Qcom..
Oh Redmi Note 8 Pro is a "real" device!
"Real" developers are even able to run custom Android 11 on it! Stop telling us you're not even able to port MiUI updates. You simply don't want to because of fanatism.
You can do what you want, true, that's your choice, we have to respect it!
But at least you have to be honest!

Maybe Xiaomi.eu should be more open-minded and stop being accomplice of a company guilty of anticompetitive behavior...this behavior kill employement in Europe (Icera, ST-Micro)

You think it's a problem of money? Wow, that's the kind of answer an iPhone's fan is able to do! Ridiculous!
ROM leader? Seriously?
