    I just like in the intro it's says the Nexus 5 is better and im watching this on the Nexus 5 and I got 2 others and I flashed resurrection remix on the two and I prefer resurrection remix over lineage os because it gives more custom options and I think lineage os is more like AOSP with out other options and btw I'm just 15 and I've been moding phones ever since I was 11

    I might risk getting kicked by my wife out of the house for that but in my opinion I will be worth it 😆

    for any1 new to this sort of stuff: every time you do something and linus tells you to reboot.. DO NOT CLICK reboot button bottom right, but use your phone's native buttons to go back to main menu and select reboot from there to reboot to recovery.

  • Alasdair Morgan
    Alasdair Morgan Před 7 dny

    There is actually a pretty good reason why Xiaomi makes you wait 72 hours before unlocking the bootloader. Its to stop individuals from buying hundreds of these phones at a good price and then flashing a custom ROM and selling them on at a higher price. The cooling off period is supposed to alleviate this issue

      So far from what i've seen, a lot of people go for Nitrogen but it's not that bad if you go with Pixel Experience for more stable custom ROM (as well as not hassling yourself to flash OpenGApps).

      +Viktor K yeah it's on miui10 I have not unlocked my bootloader just yet but am planning to this week. Also what is a camera 2 API? Or how do I enable it?

    • Viktor K
      Viktor K Před 11 dny

      +Synful Is it a on miui 10? And did you flash/enable camara2API?
      If you have enabled and flashed the gcam then miui is holding you back. No joke just move to another ROM do a backup of your data flash ROM and restore data

    • Synful
      Synful Před 11 dny

      +Viktor K I have the pocophone and I have the correct gcam the only problem is that night sight and slow Mo do not work on the global stable build of miui10

    • Viktor K
      Viktor K Před 11 dny

      +Synful Idk about that but if you find the gcam for your device and flash the right camera 2 api for your device it should work without a problem. Idk what device you have

    All this is good and nice, but having a pixel side by side helps a lot to make it look a lot like a pixel. But most of us don't have a spare pixel lying around. So if anyone found a detailed step by step video, rather than a cursory explanation one, please share.. But as always, awesome video Linus ....

    If you're following this guide, you should already have Magisk installed. If you go to the Magisk manager, down the Pix3lify add-on and flash it. That will enable lots of the pixel 3's advanced features like Call Screening, Gestures, Flip to Shhh, Digital Wellbeing, Daydream VR, Pixel sounds, Google Dialer, Camera2 API support and more.

    To anyone with a Poco watching this, I honestly would recommend Pixel Experience or AOSP Extended for your device.
    Honestly. Not even LineageOS is as stock as those 2. And, Pixel Experience has never been bug filled for me albeit using other devices.
    But preferably, AOSP Extended has a neat UI and awesome customization features within, I highly recommend you try it out.

    • Shehan Fernando
      Shehan Fernando Před dnem

      +MinBCraft It's supposed to be the most stable and consistent, as well as being the original custom ROM (well, after CynogenMod anyways). Pixel Experience and AOSPExtended ROMs borrow a lot from LOS and then add their own add-ons into it (like with AOSPExtended, it will come with Magisk pre-installed, and with Pixel Experience you'll get all the Google Apps without going to GApps).

    • MinBCraft

    Initially I liked this video, but I quickly found out that the fast and half assed "tutorial" means you'll be doing a lot of rewinding and trying to figure out wtf they do off screen to try to make this work. Its clear from their own forum that they don't give fuck 1 about anyone who bought this phone because of them as they are not offering up any help themselves or putting up a better tutorial. I wasn't able to finish through the tutorial but thankfully my phone works. It may work better if there was a way to finish all the steps, but I wouldn't know. So I've switched to down voting this video and giving up on the channel.
    If they're going to put the idea in peoples heads that they can do something, then throw some feces ridden affiliate links up to try and get cash from everyone that buys and then tell us to fuck off when we can't get through a shitty half assed "tutorial' that they made, fuck'em.

  • Chen Zou

    I don't know if things get better. But the time I tried Lineage OS, the battery life is too much worse than MIUI. So don't bother if you are used to MIUI.
