For all those who want to install a stable miui 8. here it is . this rom is from an chinese website, at the start it had a lot of bloatware so i had modified the rom and removed all of the bloatware and tried to englishize it. this rom boots up without any problem and does not consume a lot of ram, so feel free to install this rom ! .

Installation Instructions-

! TWRP recovery is recommended !
! Your phone should be charged to 100% !

Download and copy the rom file to SD Card.
Boot into the recovery and take a thorough backup of your current rom incase if anything goes wrong.
After its completed, Wipe cache, dalvik,system and data.
After that, Flash the ROM file which is located in your SD Card .
After its completed, reboot to system.
The first boot may take time so be patient.

Gapps installation [optional but recommended]

The rom contains google installer app so no need of gapps package.
Open google installer app and press the green button and it will check for all the not installed google apps and it will download all of the gapps required and it shows a screen of installation of apps where you have to press on install and wait for some time and repeat this step for installation of other google apps.
After this , it will show some force closes of google play services, so to solve this, go to settings>installed apps>downloaded apps>click on google play services and scroll down until you find Permissions manager and click on it and allow all of the permissions required for it, repeat this step for all of the other google apps until you notice any google apps is not force closing.

After all of these are done, Voila! you can use this rom !

Change logs-
Working RIL (Calls and data)
Removed some chinese apps for better performance.
Added google installer for simple installation of the gapps.
Tried to englishize the rom.

Expected so...cos cyanogen based all 6.0 MM roms has broken hwc ...which was fixed in recent versions of lineage os N roms...if only u can make a miui build on lineage 15.1..it will work

do you mean lineage 14.1 ?, because lineage 15.1 is not developed currently for our galaxy s3
So if anyone can help me building miui 9 for our device which is based on lineage 14.1 could be helpful and i have made an test build of miui 9 based on marshmallow but unfortunately the launcher force closes and because of that the whole ui becomes unresponsive. so if anyone is there to help me out to build miui 9 for our beloved device would be grateful.

hwc has nothing to do with WhatsApp calling. WhatsApp calling has been fixed on both CM13 and LOS14/14.1
