I recommend a Nandroid Backup first , just in case you don't like it and please READ this entire post and ROMs Release Notes before flashing and download what apps you need to replace deleted ones !

You can use MIUI Backup app to backup your apps and settings and not doing the whole setup process again ! Titanium Backup restore instructions !

Instructions :
  1. Clean install ( Wipe: System , Data , Dalvik Data , Cache ) - after you get ERROR 7 in TWRP just flash ROM without wiping again
  2. For root flash Official SuperSU or Magisk ( if Magisk not asking for root permission try older version like 15.1/16/17.1 ) - don't let TWRP to flash SuperSU automatically or you'll get an bootloop
  3. Skip the entire configuration screen ! ( Wifi connect , Google login ) - if you still get an error at Google Account / "Provision has stopped" -> enable Airplane Mode by holding Power button
*First Google login may take longer until Google Play Services build/download resources or trying to update , so be patient !
**To skip that download latest Google Play Store and Google Play Services for our device and update them manually from here

Things I did :
  • Replaced host file with updated one from AdAway app for NO ads
  • Replaced TouchBoost with modified one ( 1 core at 403MHz )
  • Deleted ~65 apps , files and folders ( ~85 apps + libs on SKINNY-V2 )
  • Added Root Explorer , SD Maid , APUS Browser ,
    aCalendar , ColorNote , NovaLauncher , Pulsar , QuickPic as System Apps
  • Replaced Camera with modded MiuiCamera by @jajk for new Max photo quality option
  • Updated BusyBox to 1.29.3-osm0sis
  • Changed modem to P58 for better battery management
  • Added 6 Way Advanced Reboot by @jajk
  • Updated latest media files

Things to do after flash ! Very important !
  • Using Root Explorer check in system/app/ and system/priv-app/ for empty folders ( some just with libs into ) and delete them ! Ex: jjhome , MiuiScanner , PicoTts... etc.
  • Use SD Maid to delete corpses (leftovers from apps) and then disable autostarts for the following apps : ( Help ! )
MIUI SDK (com.miui.core)
SIM Toolkit (com.android.stk)
Music (com.miui.player)
Google One Time Init (com.google.android.onetimeinitializer)
Download Manager (com.android.provider.downloads)
Contacts Storrage (com.android.provider.contacts)
Calendar storage (com.android.provider.calendar)
Calendar (com.android.calendar)
Backup (com.miui.backup) - and freeze it (unfreeze when you need it )
Xiaomi Service Framework (com.xiaomi.xmsf) - and freeze it
Xiaomi Sim Activate Service (com.xiaomi.simactivate.service) - and freeze it
Updater (com.android.updater)
Themes (com.android.thememanager)
Omacp (com.mediatek.omacp)
Notes (com.miui.notes)
OneTimeInitializer (com.android.onetimeinitializer)
PersonalAssistantPlugin (com.miui.home.launcher.assistant) - just freeze
MTK NLP Service (com.mediatek.nlpservice)
Google Partner Setup (com.google.android.partnersetup)
Google Contacts Sync (com.google.android.syncadapters.contacts) - if you don't use it !
Atci_service (com.mediatek.atci.service)

*Also disable autostarts for third party apps that you don't need to start at boot ( Ex: Facebook , Gmail , Youtube... etc. ). Don't forget to disable autostarts from MIUI Security app too

Tips and tricks : Basics

  • Use Greenify ! - highly recommended
  • Use Quickpic instead of MiuiGallery ( delete MiuiGallery and MiuiVideo ) ! - highly recommended
  • Delete PowerKeeper app if you dont need some notifications like Instagram etc. ( Messenger and Whatsapp works ! ) and to reduce wakelocks ! - highly recommended
  • Delete or freeze apps you don't use ! (Ex: AntiSpam , TouchAssistant etc. )
  • Disable autostarts for third party apps from SD Maid and MIUI Security app due to your preference
  • Use 2G network if you don't use/need mobile data (don't do it of your signal is affected ) !
  • Change animations to 0.5x from Developers Settings !
  • Check Force GPU rendering box from Developers Settings !
  • Don't set display Colors and contrast to auto !
  • Try to use low Brightness or even disable auto-brighness !
  • Remember to turn off Wifi , Mobile Data , Bluetooth , GPS when you don't use them !
  • Disable Syncing or try to reduce it !
  • Reduce apps notifications ! I have only Messenger and WhatsApp notifications enabled !
  • Don't use features like 'Lock device when in pocket' , etc. !
  • Don't unplug charger immediately after reaches 100% ! Always use original one !


Optional :
For even deeper optimization you can check Skinny Pro Custom Boot Images thread ! Be careful , not for noobs !

Note that some features like Themes , Xiaomi Account , Scanner , Compass , etc. are gone ! But you can re-install what you need and get some back READ EXTRA !

Extra :

Starting with MIUI 9 you'll find the Extra zips on AndroidFileHost into the same ROM folder !
  • If you want to connect with an MS EXCHANGE account or any other account that you can't find in Settings-Accounts or even Gmail app then you have to install Email
  • If you have trouble with Storrage management and can't acces your files using other apps ( Ex: Can't sync MEGA , can't import Themes ) then you have to install FileExplorer and DocumentsUI
  • If you wanna get the Themes or Xiaomi Account back install XiaomiAccount and FindDevice ( + RtMiCloudSDK into system/priv-app - MIUI 9.5 Stable 9.5.1.0/9.5.2.0 ). - !!! Put FindDevice into system/priv-app/ !!! To import themes install FileExplorer. Applying imported themes requires an designer authorized Xiaomi account ( How to bypass authorization - MIUI 8 )
  • If you want MiCloud back install CloudService , CloudSysbase and CloudBackup. - !!! Put CloudSysbase and CloudBackup into system/priv-app/ !!! Of course first you need Xiaomi Account from above instructions ! ( starting with Beta 7.10.5 , 05/10/2017 )
  • If you want the Weather back in SKINNY-V2 you need to install Weather and WeatherProvider into system/priv-app/ ( starting with Beta 7.10.12 , 20/10/2017 )
  • If you want to change wallpaper/lockscreen wallpaper tap and hold home screen -> change wallpaper then select Browse -> QuickPic. - Stable 8.1.3.0-SKINNY-V2
  • If you want to import ringtones install FileExplorer or simply paste your ringtones into internal storage MIUI/ringtone/
  • If you want the FM Radio back you need to install FM ( starting with Beta 6.10.13 , 14/10/2016 )

*To install apps you need to copy the entire app folder to system/app/ , set permissions to folder 0755 and permissions to .apk 0644 and reboot your phone ! DO NOT TRY TO FLASH EXTRA ZIP !

Google calendar not showing in MIUI Calendar FIX ! - Since this is a bug in MIUI 7/8/9 for a long time , I found a way to fix it :
First sync Google calendar from Accounts , then using SQLite Editor navigate to data/data/com.android.providers.calendar/databases/ , open calendar.db/calendars and modify your wanted calendar's visible and sync_events columns from 0 to 1. Next open MIUI Calendar and press Refresh !

Most I could get was 3h23m... not bad when compared to the 2h20m it used to be, but still far from your 5h...
Did you wipe everything before flashing the 6.8.4?

That's what it usually take... 70%+
It's normal for display to consume the most battery I think. I'm watching Youtube , Twich , etc. ~3h so the display it's always ON. I'm always using Wifi...I saw you're using Mobile Data so maybe that's why it shows a lower Display percentage

Yes , I wipe everything before flash. But first I do a backup with MIUI backup app and then restore. I always wipe everything before flashing new update . I know that I could dirty flash and not losing any data , but that's how I like to test every build , with a clean flash

You say you uninstalled 40+ system apps: you wouldn't remember which, would you...? I know it's a bit too much to ask.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/redm...-miui-t3309873

Read Stage 3 and delete what apps you want or you don't use. I personaly don't deleted any libs. Also don't forget to use SD Maid to disable autostarts and delete corpses.
The list with apps I removed it's quite big and I don't remember every app name to tell you exactly. For exemple I deleted many MIUI apps like Gallery , Video , Account , Mipub , etc... I deleted 30 apps from system/app and 10 apps from system/private-app.

perfservscntbl.txt I edited using Root Explorer:
CMD_SET_CPU_CORE, SCN_APP_TOUCH, 1
CMD_SET_CPU_FREQ, SCN_APP_TOUCH, 403000

P.S. If you give few ss from system/app and system/priv-app I'll tell you exactly what I'd deleted ( due to my preference �� ). I usually delete apps and files directly from ROM.zip ( from 775mb+ to 525mb+ .zip ready to flash )

Unfortunately I've deleted .zip file...
I can redownload it , "configure" it and then upload , but I will delete exactly the same apps due to my preference ( I don't use Mi Account , Video , Gallery , File Manager etc. ) Just tell me If you agree with this and I will upload it
