Android 9 Custom Firmware for Redmi Note 6 Pro (Tulip)
With the latest changes in Google and LineageOS teams, the new ROMs can be only flashed on encrypted “data” partition.
When switching from stock MIUI ROM doesn’t format “data” partition, cause it’s encrypted by default. Simply complete all other steps.
In case “data” partition is already decrypted, then simply flash any MIUI ROM version, you don’t even need to reboot into it. Also you can do this without any reinstalls. Open “Settings” > “Security” > “Encrypt data”.
Pay attention, that if the encryption is enabled, you may require a password when entering TWRP, don’t worry, this is how it should be.
How to switch from MIUI to Custom ROM?
Important notice: there’s no built-in firmware in Custom ROMs, so it won’t change the current version of the bootloader and modem. This means that it won’t get bricked device.
When you first time flash the Custom ROM, data partition will be erased, so make sure you make all the required backups. We can recommend Titanium Backup or MyBackup app. Photos and music you can simply save on your PC.
If you do backup in TWRP remember to remove any locks.
Download Custom ROM you want to flash and the corresponding version of Gapps. Move these to phone internal memory.
Boot into TWRP, make full wipe (system, data, internal memory, caches), reboot in recovery once again. After reboot, format “data” partition. Reboot once again. If you’re installing LOS based ROM, no need to format “data” partition.
After all the steps above we have crystal clear device and we can continue with ROM and Gapps installations.
In TWRP open “Install” menu, locate downloaded ROM .zip archive and GApps, add additional patches in order in case you have some.
Confirm with swipe.
Wait around 10 minutes until installation is fully finished and your phone reboots into the system.
Enjoy newly installed ROM.
