How to update firmware on Pocophone F1?
Let’s start with locked bootloader methods first. To update ROM version on locked device you’ll need to use the “Updater” application, that’s the only working method. It’s really easy to do, there’s almost no chance to brick your device and all personal data will be saved. If you’ll downgrade or switch to Weekly Developer ROM then the phone will be reset to factory settings and memory will be wiped.
If you already have the unlocked bootloader you can flash and update via TWRP Custom Recovery. But there is some nuances you should pay attention to before doing any manipulations with your device. Current TWRP versions aren’t working with OTA. You’ll also need to use the Disable Force Encryption patch. In short, boot into TWRP, go to “Install”, select downloaded ROM, wipe Cache after installation and then flash the Encryption patch.
