The android community continues to show signs of potential, and brings back to life these three phones discontinued by Xiaomi: Poco X3, Mi 6 and Mi MIX 2.
While Xiaomi continues with its plans to update to MIUI 14 based on Android 13, the truth is that many of its not so old devices have been abandoned and without official support on older versions of both Android and the much appreciated MIUI customization.

Remember that once LineageOS 20 is installed, You must also install the Google Apps manuallyincluding the Play Store, since this type of development (by Google regulations) cannot now include its proprietary application packages natively.
