Xiaomi interface is too complex? It’s too boring & slow? You don’t like the animations? This one’s for you. Here is the guide to convert Xiaomi phone to Pixel.
AOSP(Android Open Source Project, The Interface Google Pixel device has) has a simplistic user interface that’s light, smooth, and snappy. When it’s compared to MIUI, AOSP (Pixel UI) feels much smoother. There’s a way to get this smoothness and look in MIUI.
This guide requires Magisk and LSPosed.
And also it only works with MIUI 12.5+ based on Android 11+.
1. The launcher
It’s possible to convert MIUI launcher into the AOSP one! But in this case, we have to go with Lawnchair.
- Download the required module from below.
- Enter Magisk.
- Go to modules.
- Tap “Install from storage.
- Flash the launcher module that’s given in “Downloads” section.
This should prepare the base for Lawnchair to work and will NOT install Lawnchair yet.
2. Disable signature verification on APK files
Refer to this guide’s only LSPosed installing section to get LSPosed on your device.
- Download corepatch& XDowngrader apk from “Downloads” section of the post.
- Enter LSPosed.
- Enter “Modules”.
- Activate both corepatch and XDowngrader.
3. Install Lawnchair 12
APK file is given below of the post. Install over MIUI launcher using SAI(as MIUI package installer disables updating natively).
If it doesn’t install, be sure you disabled signature verification in step 3.
Back gestures will break. Use FNG(Fluid Navigation Gestures) for the back gesture. Unfortunately this is the only workaround.
4. Install Pixel MIUI theme
Flash theme patcher module given in “Downloads” section.
- Enter themes app.
- Go to “My Account”.
- Go to “Themes”.
- Tap “Import”.
- Import the MTZ file given in the downloads section of the post.
How to revert?
Oh don’t worry, reverting process is easy too!
- Uninstall Lawnchair module.
- Uninstall updates of system launcher.
- Set theme back to default.
- Disable corepatch & XDowngrader in LSPosed.
And that’s it! Whole process is reverted.
Ensure you took a backup before doing it. It might cause issues in system, or system might not even boot at all.
