The developer ported HarmonyOS onto a Mi 6 and even him surprised to find that OpenHarmony booted up successfully.

“As seen in the video, the Mi 6 runs HarmonyOS without any problems. However, this does not guarantee a good user experience. The developer has shared information indicating that the touch screen is currently not working. To confirm that the ported device can be unlocked and flashed, it has a third-party recovery similar to TWRP to facilitate flashing.

The OpenHarmony kernel is based on the standard Linux 5.10 kernel, with support for 4.19 no longer available. During installation, the device must have the kernel source code of 5.10 or higher, and the developer must confirm that the device driver source code and firmware can be obtained. Furthermore, prior to Open-source HarmonyOS, Mi 6 phones have supported flashing into the Windows 11 ARM system.
