In this tutorial, we have shared the Xiaomi MIUI 12 custom ROM for various devices. Last month, Xiaomi announced the latest iteration of its customized Android OS. Dubbed as MIUI 12, this version has already landed in the form of beta updates on many devices across China (as of now, it is only available in the said region). For the unawares, the company has announced that the stable version will be available by June. However, the thing is since the beta channel is for the China region as of now, not everyone can get the first taste of this newly released MIUI version. Furthermore, older devices like the Redmi Note 5 Pro might only be towards the bottom half of the priority queue.
Enter Xiaomi.eu. One of the more reputable and well-known players in the custom ROM development, there work is mostly based on the MIUI. And this time it is no different. The company has released its new custom ROM based on MIUI 12 for around 20 devices. So if you are interested in trying it out, head over to the below instructions and prerequisites section. But before that, let’s check out what the latest MIUI 12 has to offer.
What’s New in MIUI 12?
New Control Center
Eerie similar to the iOS, MIUI has bought a new Control Center. On swiping downwards from the right, you could witness this menu with large rounded quick settings icons. There are four settings placed on the top followed by other rounded icons. On pressing any of these options, you will witness a slight animation as well. This time they have also separated the quick settings menu from the Notification panel, which is indeed a welcome move. Lastly, you could also edit these options from the Control Center and add or remove options of your choice.
Xiaomi has finally incorporated the new Android 10 full-screen navigation gestures in this version of MIUI 12. For the unawares, swiping from the left or right performs the back action, swipe up to the middle of the screen to view the recent menu, and swipe from the bottom corners to trigger the Google Assistant.
The Chinese OEM giant has also added floating windows. They could be understood along the lines of a Free Form window that is incorporated in Developer Settings of nearly all Android devices. This window gives you a multi-window experience as you could continue with other works in the background and the floating window will be placed at one corner with live activities going on inside it.
New Icons and Fonts
There’s something for the UI lovers as well. Xiaomi has incorporated new icons and fonts packs to MIUI 12. This is applicable across both its pre-installed themes: Classic as well as Limitless. Some new animations will be visible when you launch and close any application. Even the battery icon has undergone some neat UI transformation.
Forced Dark Mode
MIUI 12 has finally come to the dark side! Well, not literally but metamorphically. Although MIUI 11 also had this dark mode, the new iteration from Xiaomi has improved quite a lot in this aspect. Furthermore, they have also added the forced dark mode toggle. This is similar to what other Android users might be aware of the override forced dark mode option baked into Developer Options. The app that doesn’t support dark mode, could also adapt it using this feature.
Well, these are just some of the many noteworthy features that MIUI 12 has been blessed with. For the complete list, please refer to our comprehensive MIUI 12 article.
