UNSOLVED Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 pro stuck on boot screen.
Recently, I tried to flash Ubuntu touch on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 pro (violet) using the UBports Installer (0.8.9-beta)..., everything went well from the computer's side according to the installer. But on the phone's side, it is stuck on the "Redmi by Xiaomi" (boot screen) after the "Installing Updates" for more than an hour. Does it really take that long for first boot?
Also, how should I revert back to android if I have to?

@loboturbo It shouldn't take so long. Try running the installer again, but don't tick the box that is for wipe userdata.
Also you when you installed you were on Android version 9?
@mrt10001 Android 10, MIUI 12.5
(sorry for the late reply).

@loboturbo Use a windows PC - you have to and the Mi flash tool to flash to Android 9. DO NOT RELOCK THE BOOTLOADER, you can brick the phone.
Check this thread out about using the Mi Flash tool (on a different device, but essentially the same method).
Download a fastboot version from here, for some reason I cannot find a global version, but make sure it is Android version 9.
Hi, I read from notes that we need android 9.0 and installed the official release from India rom sites.
The process still did not work for me when I used the android 9 version of stock MIUI rom and I would get the same result as you.
Eventually what worked for me:
- used TWRP
- Flashed Android rom version 9.9.3 (I read that the maintainer had tested on 9.9.3)
- Then used the latest UBports installer version 0.9.x beta
- After repeated failure to install from the stable channel I chose to install the RC version and that worked
After installation I tried to update the OS from phone settings using the stable channel but that would not boot and I had to reinstall from RC channel again using the UBports installer.
As of now I'm running the RC channel and it seems to be working fine.
Sometimes the swipe from right to close the applications starts misbehaving. However lock and unlock of the phone sets it right.
Rest of the features at least seem ok.
I am able to browse, make calls and use phone messages.
