CarbonROM, BlissROMs, and AOSiP custom ROMs are now available for the POCO X2
Following the launch of the POCO X2 (review) in India, the company sent out a couple of units of the device to custom ROM and kernel developers. The idea behind the move was to help kickstart third-party development for the device and our first custom development roundup revealed that it’s been a massive success. Developers have already released four custom ROMs, two custom kernels, a Google Camera port, and unofficial TWRP for the device. And now, we have three more custom ROMs to add on to the list.
An unofficial build of the AOSP-based CarbonROM is now available for the POCO X2, which brings a fast, stable and feature-filled stock Android experience. The Android 10-based ROM comes with included Google apps, so you don’t have to flash a GApps package separately and other than a minor ghosting issue, users have reported that the ROM works quite well. To try it out on your device, you can download the .zip package from the forum link below and flash it by following the instructions in this post.
An official build of the Android 10-based BlissROMs is now also available for the POCO X2, which offers plenty of customization options, added security measures, improved performance, and better battery life on the device. While a couple of users initially faced issues upon flashing the ROM, the developers have since released updated flashing instructions that seem to have addressed all issues. If you’re interested in trying out the BlissROM on your device, you can download the .zip package from the link below and carefully follow the latest instructions in the thread to get it up and running.
Finally, an alpha build of the AOSiP ROM is now also available for the POCO X2. The AOSP based ROM packs in a ton of customization options and it even enables the hidden notification LED on the device. Since this is an alpha build, however, a few users have reported facing issues with Bluetooth audio playback, slow fingerprint unlock, and ghost touches. If you’re interested in trying out the ROM irrespective of that, you can find the flashing instructions in the forum post linked below.
