can be a few variations that result to this.

1) those china non-branded charger
2) USB cables are those cheap and thin one.. not certified usb type c cable.

till now, i have never had a single phone/tablet battery that is bloated.

as most of the time i use Anker/Ugreen/Baseus charger.

Can share where did you buy those chargers?

After much thought, decided to change the battery myself.

Spoiler!


Damage:
$35 for battery
$3 for tools

The most difficult part is to open the back casing, tried to open with fingernails.. end up losing bits of them and suffer small cuts to fingers (Not a very handy person lol)

It is running successfully with the screen panel going back to how it was. Now I can't brush off the thoughts that it may catch fire someday..

The tools you need are:

- 1 x BN60 battery (would be nice to find a Xiaomi battery, but I'm not sure where to get it so I just bought an OEM one)
- 1 x T3 Torx screw driver (for the casing bottom two screws)
- 1 or 2 Scraper (to break open the back of the case, the toughest part of the whole operation) (something thin and durable is better.. I used this https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...lat+Soft+Blade)
I broke my fingernails, had to specially order and wait for this tool just to break open the case lol
- 1 x mini philips screw driver.. (the size should be ph000 or ph00) to open two small screw inside covering the battery connector
- 1 x plastic scoop (something thin, non conductive will be better I think.) battery is 'glued' to the board, need to slowly 'cut' separate them. I used this https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...=Spatula+Scoop)

Hopefully the new OEM battery can last long, most importantly dont become a fire hazard..

Hi

May I know if anyone here tried to flash Havoc OS on your mipad 4plus?

I followed the instruction from the YT video but used 26th Aug Havoc OS from the sourceforge site and gapps from opengapps site. This resulted in the Havoc OS circles bootup animation for 20mins without progressing.

There were 2 main differences I can discern from the video (time: 1:08min)
1) I used a newer Mi unlock program from link below instead of from his zip file. The unlock message was different from what he showed in the video. The message I got said the unlock was successful and not required to do it again.

2) When my rom, gapp and su files were transferred to the tablet, his directory was empty but mine still contained the usual directories like Alarm etc.

Anyone can advise how to proceed? I repeated the process stated in the video thrice. Note: The video is super fast and I had to slow it down

Thanks in advance

I flashed it to havoc OS on my MiPad4.. But the Havoc OS is out of support since Aug 2019.. So I've flashed back to EU rom instead.

This is what I did last time.. I think it's mainly because I didn't root it..




Edit 3:

It works now. I re-did all the steps this time and the only changes are:

- Saving and using the rom + gapps on an ext SD card instead of thumbdrive OTG

- Format the ext SD card to exFat (128GB)

- Did not root the mipad with SuperSU

Thanks, didn't know that it's out of support. Guess I will choose another rom then.

Maybe you can take a look at LineageOs..


yeap. true to that, quality also plays a part as well.

anyway for those who are using HavocOS, you might want to change to LineageOS as the developer have move on to develop LineageOS.
