DISCLAIMER:

THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Xiaomi Mi5s requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Xiaomi Mi5s phone, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.

Before Starting

Take care of mentioned tasks before you continue with flashing custom ROM:

Task 1: Install USB drivers for your device on your PC.

Task 2: Be sure to backup your data including Contacts, SMS / MMS, APN & MMS Settings as well as photos & videos saved on your Device internal or external storage.

Task 3: Make sure that your device is well charged. Ideally, the battery level should be about 60-80%.

Task 4: USB Debugging will be enabled.

Important: Most of the custom ROM will not have Google Apps in them. So, you have to download and install Google Apps manually.

Done with introductory precautionary steps? So, here’s the guide:


TWRP recovery lets you do a number of cool stuff but the whole purpose of having a custom recovery is to be capable of flashing unsigned .zip files. These .zip files could be anything from a custom kernel, boot, recovery, MODs or full custom ROMs.
