For some, MIUI is just what they need while for others it’s an ugly headache. If you fall into the latter category, you can now install an Android Oreo-based Pixel Experience ROM on Xiaomi Poco F1 to get a more stock and fluid experience. Installing a custom ROM requires you to unlock the bootloader first, and have a custom recovery like TWRP (website) installed. Make sure to always create a backup of your Android device before proceeding. While the download link for officially supported devices is mentioned below, some of these ROMs may have an unofficial port firmware available for other devices as well. These Custom ROMs offer excellent benefits and extra features like animations, gestures, lock screen, status bar, etc. It helps in enhancing your POCO phones UI, battery performance, and overall usability.
- The installation process is quite similar to the standard Windows Application.
- POCO is a well-known smartphone brand (sub-brand of Xiaomi) becomes an independent brand with its core-value of Xiaomi, obviously.
- So wherever a new MIUI update is launched, it is almost certain that the PocoPhone will get it either officially or unofficially.
- It’s called LiquidCool, and it works by transferring heat from the processor to the other parts of the phone, a bit like an AC unit.
The MIUI for POCO F1 was explicitly optimized for POCO, which is not a light UI, thus, not liked by all users. Hence, to meet the user demands, Custom ROMs are designed as per their choice. If you’re on a tight budget, it should definitely be at the top of your list of options. If you have a little leeway, go try out some of the other phones we mentioned. If you’re looking for performance and a battery that keeps you going all day, the POCOphone F1 becomes even more compelling. If you care primarily about having the best performance or you want to make sure your phone will stay fast for several years, then it’s very hard to beat the POCOphone for the money. Raw specs don’t tell the full story, but the F1 definitely gets all the basics right.
If you’ve had any help from me or this module, any kind of donation to support the work involved would of course be appreciated. If you have questions, suggestions or are experiencing some kind of issue, visit the module support thread @ XDA. If you’re having issues passing SafetyNet, getting your device certified, or otherwise getting MagiskHide to work, take a look in the Magisk and MagiskHide Installation and Troubleshooting Guide. Instructions on how to install LSPosed and XprivacyLua and how to use that module can be found with a simple web search, I won’t cover that here. You probably will have more success with GCam Go mods as these devices come with the Camera2 API disabled, which is required for regular GCam to work.
There were talks that the re-released build of MIUI 12 might have been buggy as well, hence the delay in rolling out the Fastboot ROM. Pocophone F1 Smartphone is powered by Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 Chipset.
- In February this year, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched an affordable flagship gaming phone called the Redmi K50G.
- It is one of the popular devices among developer community, especially when it comes to custom ROMs like Lineage OS and Pixel Experience ROM.
- Check in the Magisk Manager and make sure that the module is enabled.
- Sometimes a soft reboot is required after setting a prop for the value to be properly loaded into memory.
- Xiaomi Poco F1 Run on android 8.1 OS and Powered by QCOM SD 845 Processor.
- Android has become the best operating system software because of its compatibility and user-friendly nature.
To install this Ported ROM in POCO F1, you have to do these two processes first. Her love story with Android started in 2009 and has been going stronger with every update, device, tip, app, and game. She lives in France, speaks three languages and a half, and watches a lot of TV series. The F1 has no NFC and its LTE bands are limited though, so it won’t appeal to those who absolutely require these two features, but that’s Xiaomi’s stance for now. It’s leaving part of the market on the table for others to exploit, though I doubt this will go on for long. When the Poco F1 was announced with a Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM for $300, flashbacks of the first OnePlus were unavoidable. A lot was riding on this first device from Xiaomi’s sub-brand and, as far as I’m concerned, the experiment is a resounding success.
