  • To install an OrangeFox zip, flash it with any TWRP-compatible custom recovery without any wipes

Flashing a ROM is usually a straightforward process. You can either do a “clean” flash, or a “dirty” flash.

First things:
When flashing a ROM, you want to ensure that the recovery is in a known state, before you start flashing the ROM. Therefore, you should always observe the following:

  • Do NOT flash a ROM in a queue with other zips. Always flash a ROM on its own, and when flashing is completed, reboot OrangeFox, before doing anything else.
  • If you ever wipe the /vendor partition, then you must reboot OrangeFox immediately afterwards – before doing anything else (eg, flashing a ROM or anything else you might want to do).
  • If you ever wipe the /system or the data partition, then you must reboot OrangeFox immediately afterwards – before doing anything else (ignoring any warnings about no OS being installed).
  • If you ever format the data partition, then you must reboot OrangeFox immediately afterwards – before doing anything else.
  • If your Xiaomi device has ARB, and you are on a MIUI ROM, then you had better tread very carefully if you want to change your MIUI ROM to a different MIUI ROM, or to a different version of the same MIUI ROM. Search on Google for “ARB”, read and understand everything, and then decide whether you really need to proceed.
  • Make a full backup of your current ROM – before performing any other operations in the recovery. At the very least, backup the /boot, /data, system_image (or system – if system_image is not available for backup) and vendor_image (or vendor – if vendor_image is not available for backup) partitions.
  • Please note that, if you do not follow all of the above instructions, and you encounter problems afterwards (which you definitely will), we will not answer any questions.

A. “Clean flashing” (Strongly recommended)

  • Backup your applications, settings, SMS messages, call logs, etc Do NOT skip this step.
  • Bootup OrangeFox Recovery
  • Select “Wipe”, and tick data, cache, and dalvik
  • Swipe to wipe (this will restore the installed ROM to a known state, and will remove apps/settings that might be incompatible with the ROM that you wish to install).
    Note: moving from one ROM to a different ROM might require you to format your data partition (“format – not just wipe), otherwise you might be getting prompts for passwords that you have not set (note also that formatting data will result in the contents of your internal storage being obliterated)
  • Reboot OrangeFox
  • Select the ROM that you want to flash
  • Swipe to flash
  • Reboot OrangeFox recovery – before doing anything else – so that any changes to partitions/filesystems done by flashing the new ROM will take full effect
  • Flash whatever else you might want to flash (eg, GAPPs, magisk, etc)
  • Reboot your device
  • Wait for a long time while the new ROM sets itself up (go and make a cup of tea!)
  • Enjoy

B. “Dirty flashing” (NOT recommended)

  • Bootup OrangeFox Recovery
  • Choose the ROM that you want to flash
  • Swipe to flash
  • Wipe cache and dalvik
  • Reboot OrangeFox recovery – before doing anything else – so that any changes to partitions/filesystems done by flashing the new ROM will take full effect
  • Flash whatever else you might want to flash (eg, GAPPs, magisk, etc)
  • Reboot your device (if it does not bootloop)
  • Enjoy (if the device actually manages to boot, and you do not get random errors)
    NOTE: Dirty flashing a ROM is NOT recommended. It can cause all kinds of random problems. Always choose to “clean flash”.
