[Tips] Restore Your Mi Dialer, Messaging & Contacts Backup

Hei Redmi Note 8/Pro users,

How are we doing, today? As days gone by, unlocking, rooting and flashing between Rom variants it is vivid that flashing different Rom has its pros and cons. As for Global EEA Rom I am using has Google Dialer, Messages & Contacts comes pre-installed with it. These are all the provision laid down due to User Privacy effecting certain region regulations.

So how do we go about restoring our past Mi Dialer, Messaging & Contacts Backup which had been sync to Mi Cloud as opposed to Google Drive. There a few procedures to it, you can use ADB Sideload that you can use to push and install a zip using one command from your computer or using the Apk which can be directly installed on your device. For this tip, we are using Apk to install the Mi Dialer, Messaging & Contacts.

NOTE: This procedure will ONLY RESTORE your existing Backup of your Mi Dialer, Messaging & Contacts ONLY if it was SYNCED with Mi Cloud before. This procedure by No Means to Replace the Default Google Dialer, Messages & Contacts, due to Google Services Framework core functionality issues which involves the of mod MIUI 10 System UI/framework-res systems files.

Let's get it done.

Download and install these two APKs. Allow all permissions for it to function.

Be forewarned, when you launch any of these 3 apps, it will be superseded by the Default Google Dialer, Messages & Contacts core systems app, hence it will force closed and behave abnormal in some instances. What is important here it will sync all your past Recents Calls history, SMS Messages and Contacts in the background.

After some hours you should see all those items available to you again. As for Messages services, after your backup have been restored, make sure to Set the Default Messaging app to Google Messages or else you will not get your messages or SMS as usual. That's all for now.
