Dear fellow Mi 3/4 & Note owners!

Awesome News!
shutterstock_83530636-e1397385358855.jpg


In view of the need for a merge in system partition to support his own ported Android 6.0 Marshmallow AOSP ROM for Mi 3/4/Note, Mr. Ivan @秋叶随风 had created a guide, recovery images & a new CUSTOM TWRP recovery.


So to cut the story short, Here goes!


*NOTE: Please do a backup before proceeding. This is highly recommended for ADVANCED USER only. & Last but not least, FLASH @ YOUR OWN RISK!

If you have problems flashing the merge zip or getting the flash_all.bat inside the zip to work (because you already have a 1.2gb system partition or whatever). Here's how to fix it:
1. Download the cancro_merge_partition (2).zip to your computer (or the virgo version if you've got a Mi Note)
2. Extract it and open the "images" folder
3. Hold shift, click right mouse button and click "open command prompt here"
4. Boot your device into fastboot mode (Volume down + Power button), connect your device to the PC and type "fastboot devices" in the command prompt and see if some random numbers show up
5. Type the following commands and enter after each one (so you'll flash the files one by one:
fastboot flash partition gpt_both0.bin
fastboot flash tz tz.mbn
fastboot flash dbi sdi.mbn
fastboot flash sbl1 sbl1.mbn
fastboot flash rpm rpm.mbn
fastboot flash aboot emmc_appsboot.mbn
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot erase DDR
fastboot flash misc misc.img
fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot boot recovery.img
6. Now your phone boots into the recovery and you can flash the Ivan's AOSP 6.1.1 and the Benzo Gapps without error or endless Mi logo.

Hope this works for you and all credits to Ivan who put the zip together. I just copied the flashing commands from the flash_all.bat (and let the false error commands out)

Sorry wrong info. In previous reply.

I was stuck at the following

check the previous page, I put a guide there to do it manually when the flash_all.bat doesn't work. It's easier than it looks

Edit:
For anyone having trouble with the chinese language, remember the lay-out is exactly like this.
I used this pic to know what option is what. When you wipe before installing, select the ones that say something with system, dalvik/art and cache. The two completely chinese wipe options are internal storage and data, so don't check those (if you're updating from a previous version of AOSP).


Edit: See post at page 38 for when the flash_all.bat doesn't work (shows up for half a second only)

Hi all, if you want to change TWRP Recovery to English UI, try this:
1. Download 01 English theme from this: https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/z31s1g/1536/TWRP%20287X_v2
2. Rename downloaded file to ui.zip.
3. Create folder TWRP at root of internal storage.
4. Open TWRP folder and create folder theme at this.
5. Copy ui.zip to theme folder.
6. Reboot to TWRP recovery.
Done!
