LineageOS 16 ROM for Xiaomi Mi8!

LineageOS 16 ROM for Xiaomi Mi8 is probably the first custom ROM you want to try on your Mi8, especially if you want to run something more closer to stock Android like Pixel 3 with latest Android 9.0 Pie.  Although MIUI isn’t bad, personally I am more used to stock Android experience and I really hate the iPhone-like MIUI launcher.  Also, menus are way different on MIUI and I wanted to run a software that I am more used to.

How to Install Android 9.0 Pie ROM on Xiaomi Mi8!

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.

Xiaomi Mi8 Review! – Best Budget Smartphone I Ever Bought, WOW!

Here’s my full review of the Xiaomi Mi8. In my opinion, this is the best budget smartphone I have ever bought and perhaps the best smartphone under $450. It’s got the latest Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM(or 8GB if you go for the 128GB model), 6.21-inch Super AMOLED screen(that’s bright as any Samsung/LG), fast performance, dual-SIM, and have killer camera(keeps up to Pixel 2 in both daylight/low-light).  If you want to save a few bucks this year on a smartphone that pretty much does everything a flagship does, this is it!  Of course, Pocophone could be even better, I should have full unboxing/review of that also.
