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 a tutorial on how to install Android 9.0 Pie ROM such as the LineageOS 16 ROM, Pixel 3 ROM, or Pixel Experience ROM on your Xiaomi Mi8. There are several guides floating on the internet but none of them work 100% of the time so I had to figure out exactly how to install Android 9.0 Pie ROMs on my Mi8 and here’s the process I came up with that works everytime so you don’t have to spend 2 days like I did trying to install a ROM and end up in a bootloop. The Xiaomi Mi8 is slightly complicated beast compared to other Android phones and even as an Android expert, it took me a quite awhile to figure this out so follow the tutorial if you want to save yourself some headache and most importantly spend more time with your family. Doing it right will only take you 10-20 minutes.
For those of you who want to get the latest Android 9.0 Pie experience with root(or without root) on your OnePlus 2, it is actually easy to do since OnePlus 2 has unlockable bootloader(that does not void warranty) and you can easily install custom ROMs. Best of all, you can even get pure Pixel-like experience with Pixel launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, and even boot animation! Yes, thanks to XDA user Shreesha.Murthy, now you can install the Pixel Experience ROM to get flawless Android P 9.0 running on your OnePlus 2. And I have personally went through everything a human being can go through and this ROM is indeed as good as Android 9.0 running on my Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones.
For those of you who have a OnePlus One, Android 9.0 Pie is now available through a custom ROM called PSOP(Potato Open Sauce Project). Now, this ROM has pretty much everything working out of the box including voice calls, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, etc…etc… Developer says GPS is a bit wonky but seems to work fine for me after using the GPS Fix app on the Play Store. Battery life is excellent(as you will also be able to benefit from Android 9.0 30% improved battery) as the new Android P will prioritize apps and save battery by shutting down apps wasting battery life. Performance is also excellent with Antutu scores of 66,000. For right now, this seems like the best way to experience Android Pie 9.0 on your OnePlus One. I’ve also tested calls both on speakers and bluetooth with my car bluetooth and they seemed to work flawless. While many other Android devices have trouble with bluetooth, OnePlus One does well as it was designed to work well with AOSP(What is AOSP?).
Thanks to XDA developer TopJohnWu, he has released Magisk V16.1 which now is fully-compatible with the latest Android P(9.0) so you can easily root your Pixel phones on latest Android P Preview and should work fine when official Android P comes out.
