What works?
All works fine but missing only the fingerprint voice on settings.

Is multilanguage?
Yes.

Is for normal use?
Yes and not, you need to clean the ROM from some developing apps,
install OpenGapps arm x64 5.1.1 (only pico works).

Can i install custom recovery?
Yes you can. No patch on boot needed.

FINGERPRINT ON SETTINGS IS MISSING.

OK, tried it and its pretty good, especially if like me you like a bare bones Android experience that you can customise.

I rooted it, installed gapps, installed the xposed framework, gravity-box, greenify, adaway etc all working pretty well. Changed the DPI settings also as I like less zoomed in experience. Nova launcher is looking pretty well !!!

I will see what the battery life is like overnight and decide if I will keep using it until we get a decent CM12.1 (or ideally CM13).

Only negatives are as OP said are the fingerprint reader cannot be enabled and in a few places it definitely looks like a 'test ROM'. There are some minimal test apps, but faced with a choice of lots of MIUI apps or a few test apps I would rather the few tests app. The camara App is pretty good IMO also.

Overall I've got the following impression of this firmware:
1. Switching from 3G -> 4G is more reliable than on any MIUI rom. First of all I don't loose internet connectivity during the switch (with MIUI I always do) and secondly it founds 4G networks almost instantly, and for MIUI it took minutes.
2. I've tried to flash open gapps stock - it basically made them unusable (was unable to create account), but open gapps mini worked ok for me. Though got a problem with black home screen and very slow phone until I've changed home launcher back to trebuschet.
3. Battery usage also increased in my use cases. I usually got 25% battery/8h, but now it's more like 35%/8h. Though it may be related to the fact that all messangers, etc syncs as often as they want, and with MIUI I never was able to properly receive all push notifications, etc for most of the apps.
4. According to some benchmarks, it seems that this rom is a tiny bit faster. (geekbench results increased by 7% for example). Though that doesn't really matter for me.
5. I usually have more RAM available and apps killed less aggressively.

There is a strange focal distance thing...

Why are the focal distances not the same? I mean, it should be 2.0 on PRO for both MIUI and SD ROMs...
Kenzo and 2.2?? Completely strange...
