  1. Hey, I’ve tried tethering (usb and wifi), and it doesn’t work, as ffunes said.

    When I tried usb tethering, (with Windows, two different computers) , some NDIS and Alcatel drivers were installed but I couldn’t use my phone data connection. If the phone is connected by wifi to internet, the computer has internet through it. But not through 3G data connection, if wifi is disabled.

    With wifi tethering, I don’t know the password required to connect to the phone.

    Any plans to support tethering? Would love it

    Thanks for your awesome work!

    • hi mate,

      I was and am aware of these bugs,but the development for this ROM has stopped as far as I know.

      I contacted the developer to tell him about all these issues but I’m afraid he never got back.

        Are there any other bugs other than this tethering one?

        I am very interested to try this ROM, but I want to know the bugs in this ROM before flashing it…

      • Well… I don’t want to use tethering with my pc I want to use it with my iPad… so that’s not an option

    Finally I have flashed the ROM. I have a problem with the Xperia Home launcher that some of my games installed on SD card disappear from the desktop or app drawer, but they can be searched out and can run without problem. Therefore I have changed to another launcher. After trying some, I chose Nova Launcher.

    So far I found that it consumes battery a little bit more than the original MIUI, but I haven’t counted the time accurately, so it’s just a feeling. Now I am using Nova Launcher + Xposed with some modules, and I have quite happy with them. I haven’t discovered any other problem other than tethering.

    And I have to say, now my RedMi is feeling “more Android”, and I like it.

    Thanks for the Rom!

  3. The ROM worked fine during a few days. After that the lag appears at every second and make the mobile completely unresponsive 😦 I would not know what made the mobile so so laggy. Any one with similar situation?

    Hey all,
    Can somebody confirm me if I can put this rom to a Redmi 1W HM2013023 which runs now MIUI 26.0.0

    Thank you
