In this video, I show you how I converted my Xiaomi Mi 9 into a Pixel 3! I hate MIUI OS that comes with Xiaomi phones but fortunately you can easily root and install a custom ROM like Pixel Experience ROM which fully converts your Xiaomi Mi9 into a Pixel 3, or better than Pixel 3 since it has 3 back cameras, wireless charging, and at half the cost!
This is also same cost as Pixel 3a but you get latest Snapdragon 855 instead of 670.
Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to install this:
Get the Xiaomi Mi 9 for $399 on eBay(my recommended seller) – Link
I will have a full tutorial on how to install this ROM and mods but if you don’t want to wait, here’s how to do it.
Step 1. Unlock bootloader and Root – Link
Step 2. Boot into TWRP, wipe, then install “MI9_Global_V9.5.30_vendor_fw_flash.zip” firmware.

Step 3. Wipe cache and install ROM.
