GSI Roms on Mi8


Hi Max. I recently unlocked my Chinese Mi8 with Chinese MIUI (or a similar one) and immediately installed TWRP and flashed the MIUI 8.10.25 but it kept fc’ing at the setup window where in region it only showed China and on clicking on that it kept saying something like Find Location has unexpectedly stopped.
So then I tried flashing the Xiaomi EU rom 8.10.12 and it went like a breeze and after setup I tested the cameras and followed your guide and installed Havoc OS. It performed well and then I flashed the Pixel Experience GSI and wow no problems. I then flashed a lot of the GSI roms in the XDA treble thread and all booted and worked flawlessly. Great stuff.
I thought I’d let you know.
Hope this helps someone
