Xiaomi Redmi 5A and Mi 6 get unofficial port of Android 9 Pie

The release of Android 9 Pie has certainly moved the waters in the ROM, which in a sense is always moving but for some terminals instead is a mirage and that's it. In fact there are many smartphones that are stuck to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and that will never see further upgrades at the firmware level. Fortunately, the array of modders behind the release of custom ROMs always has new solutions that give new life to certain devices while others offer the chance to try out some of the new Google operating system. And it is the case of the porting of Andrroid 9 Pie, that before the official rollout, arrives im two terminals of the Xiaomi family: Redmi 5A that receives the port through the Carbon ROM and the Xiaomi Mi 6 that instead receives the update through the porting of the Nitrogen OS.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A: Android 9 porting

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a very cheap device that owes its popularity mainly to this aspect but also to a good quality and general performance that has repeatedly made it a sales champion. Launched last November, the small Xiaomi smartphone is now able to perform the latest version of the OS of Google thanks to a port, especially thanks to the Carbon ROM.

Xiaomi Mi 6: Android 9 porting

Even the former top-of-the-range Xiaomi Mi 6 receives unofficial Android 9 Pie thanks to porting on a Nitrogen OS base. Unlike the Carbon ROM the porting developers for Mi 6 have not listed anything about what works or does not work, so the situation is to be faced only by true brave and modding explorers, even if it does not exclude the fact that the ROM in reality is stable and free of considerable bugs, since the Bug section is present on the Nitrogen OS thread for Mi 6, but this is empty. However, if you want to deepen the port of Android 9 Pie for Mi 6 you can click on the button below.




Nerd, Geek, Netizen, terms that do not belong to me. Simply myself, technology lover and provocative as Xiaomi does with his products. High quality at fair prices, a real provocation for the other most famous brands.
