Android 12 custom ROMs are ready to be installed on These Redmi Phones


With Android 12‘s AOSP supply drop yesterday, many had been left wondering (specifical people with Pixel devices) once they might get to apply a completely whole model of the trendy and best Android experience. We’ve already visible some beta builds from OEMs like OPPO, OnePlus, and Samsung for pick-out devices, however, there aren’t any solid releases but and there probably won’t be for a while. Having stated that, the general public availability of the Android 12 supply code manner that custom ROMs are actually because of coming at any time, and indeed, they have got already commenced acting on our forums.

An Android 12-primarily based totally custom ROM is now to be had for the Redmi K20 Pro/Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, courtesy of XDA Senior Member abhishek987. The huge information right here is that the vanilla AOSP ROM appears to be quite a whole lot solid for the maximum part, even though with one huge caveat that being the SELinux popularity is about to permissive withinside the preliminary build. The developer has followed Danny Lin’s (AKA XDA Senior Member kdrag0n) open-supply dynamic theming solution, as Google has but to completely open supply its “Monet” theming system.

Since this device has multiple regional variants, it is recommended to flash the latest region-specific stable channel MIUI firmware before installing the Android 12-based AOSP ROM. However, do keep in mind that a permissive SELinux environment is not at all meant for being a daily driver. Unless you don’t have any problem with running less secure software, you’re better off not installing it as your primary device.

There is no doubt that Android has become more and more modularized since the arrival of Project Treble, making custom ROMs closer and closer to Generic System Images, or GSIs. Thanks to the beauty of Treble, most of the current generation devices with an unlockable bootloader can technically boot nearly fully functional builds based on the latest Android release. This has led to XDA Recognized Contributor AndyYan compiling an experimental Android 12 GSI build from the source, which can be flashed on any Treble-compatible device.

The Android 12 GSI build is rather a barebone at this stage, but that is alright as we are still in the early days and additional features will be migrated over time. The developer has also created a dedicated repo for the framework’s base patches so that ROM maintainers can easily chzerry-pick and start porting the popular custom ROMs on top of Android 12.

Legendary GSI developer and XDA Recognized Developer phhusson are also working on his own Android 12 GSI, though he has yet to release any builds publicly at the moment. It’s still early days for Android 12 custom ROMs, but keep an eye out on your device’s forums and you may be surprised by how quickly they pop up.
