When it comes to custom development, then the Poco devices have always been among the most active players. And the fifth iteration in this regard is no different either.

However, Pixel Experience is the one that tends to stand out from the crowds. Offering a clean stock usage experience with all the Pixel goodies but at the same time making sure that it doesn’t spell out a bloated UI/UX, well there’s nothing much left to ask. This is then ‘packed’ in a fast, snappy, and stable OS, thereby giving you performance-enhanced usage. So on that note, let’s get started with the steps to install Pixel Experience Android 14 ROM on Poco F5/Redmi Note 12 Turbo.

NOTE: At the time of writing, the ROM is unofficial and in a testing stage.

STEP 1: Install Android SDK

install adb platform tools windows

First and foremost, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This is the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google and is the only recommended one. So download it and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so will give you the platform-tools folder, which will be used throughout this guide to install LineageOS on Redmi Note 10 Pro/Max.

STEP 2: Enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking

Next up, you will also have to enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking on your device. The former will make your device recognizable by the PC in ADB mode. This will then allow you to boot your device to Fastboot Mode. On the other hand, OEM Unlocking is required to carry out the bootloader unlocking.
