Note:

I personally don't own a Mi5s Plus, but only a Mi5s so I can't directly test builds.
Anyway Xiaomi msm8996 devices share source code, so there shouldn't be many differences between what I face on my device and what is faced on Mi5s Plus.

Appeared in the row of the second SIM although it is not.
Appeared in the second line SIM, although it is not. Need a solution. In the rest of the until good core. I test further.
P.s. If you put the SIM in the first slot, then all is well.

Yes.
It works better than stock kernel IMO. smoother and better battery life. I've been using it for the past 3 days and it's stable.

Will bootloop with NXP 7.0, which is also not supported (but worth a shot).
