Google introduced the stable version of the new Android 12 operating system a few days ago – on October 4, the source code was published in the Android Open Source Project.

Interestingly, stable Android 12 has not yet been released even for branded Pixel smartphones, which should receive it in the coming weeks. Google also promises that smartphones Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Tecno, Vivo and Xiaomi will receive Android 12 by the end of 2021.

However, it is not necessary to wait for the official release of the desired firmware. Since stable Android 12 is already available through the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the first alternative firmwares based on the new OS have already been presented.

One of the first signs was a “clean” AOSP build for the Redmi K20 Pro (Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro) from the member abhishek987 of the XDA mobile developer community.

It is noted that the assembly abhishk987 is already to a large extent stable, even one of the main features of the OS is working – adjusting the Dynamic Color color themes, although this is implemented using a third-party solution, since Google has not yet opened the full code of the Monet theme system.

Another community developer, AndyYan, has created a build of Android 12 that will fit any device with Project Treble support. This is a very simple assembly, inferior to the more functional versions. Over time, additional functions may be added to it.

The beta version of WhatsApp for Android under the number 2.21.22.6 introduced the Undo function, which allows you to quickly remove an unsuccessful status sent by mistake or typed with typos.

A few days ago, Microsoft opened to the public a long-awaited feature in the new Windows 11 operating system in test mode – the ability to run applications created for the Android operating system.

But even the beta test launch turned out to be very limited – only for test participants in the US and only for 50 applications.

Enthusiasts could not come to terms with this injustice. And so, the developer ADeltaX reported on his Twitter page about the found way to install Google Play services and the Google Play store in the Windows Subsystem for Android. In essence, this opens up the possibility of installing almost any Android application on a Windows 11 computer.

Users in China have a special love for Xiaomi Mi 6: many still believe that the company has not yet released a flagship that can replace this model. As a result, users still have a fairly large number of Mi 6s in their hands, which means that there are enough devices for experiments. The pictures below show the result of such an experiment.

One of the users managed to install Windows 11 on ARM on Mi 6. Of course, the system does not work super fast (the OS loads for more than a minute, some menus inside the OS itself take several seconds to load), but in general, Windows 11 on Mi 6 is quite efficient.
