Mi A1 ROM for Redmi Note 4 | Guide

2

Well, Redmi Note 4 is one of the best selling smartphones in India. Thus uses of custom ROMs is quite expected and even many people don’t like MIUI despite the fact this device is packing a lot. Well Xiaomi recently came up with an Android One Device “Mi A1” with Google Powered stock Android and we have already made a video on Mi A1 (or Mi 5x), click here to see the similarities between them.

Being Powered by the same chipset i.e, Snapdragon 625, developers on XDA ported the same ROM for Redmi Note 4 as well to give custom ROM users, an almost same experience.  Follow these steps to get the same experience on your Redmi Note 4 as well-

Prerequisites:

You need to have an unlocked bootloader and TWRP recovery installed on your device. If you haven’t unlocked bootloader and installed TWRP then follow this link.

Make a backup of your data on your Internal storage(as it is going to be wiped) and the current ROM in case of boot loop issues.

Check Original XDA thread here.

Downloads required: ROM

Bugs:

  • FingerPrint Scanner
  • VoLTE
  • IR Blaster

{Soon will be fixed so keep an eye on this article}

  1.  Turn Off your device completely and move into your custom recovery by holding Volume Up and Power button together.
  2.  Once you are on TWRP then select wipe and swipe to do a factory reset
  3.  Now go back and select Format data and type “yes” if prompted and enter to wipe the Internal Storage.
  4.  Now copy the files downloaded onto your SD card(in case you have downloaded on your PC directly).
  5.  Now go the home of TWRP, select Reboot and Select Recovery.
  6. Once you are booted again, go to Install then navigate to the destination where you have placed the ROM file and flash it.

{As this is a directly ported ROM from Stock, so there is no need to flash GApps separately, they are already included in the ROM}

  1. Once flashed, move to home and reboot to System.

That’s it, you have successfully got the same stock ROM as Mi A1 on your Redmi Note 4. Huge thanks to developers on XDA forums for their time and efforts.
