    You mean fod with screen off? that will work only with the crdroid provided kernel because the dev patched it on purpose to make it work. Okita released a magisk module to make it work without those patches. It's here on xda :)

    Weird, it's being used on that rom by one of my testers so I'm pretty sure it works there. Crdroid full seems to have a problem with reboots though. Try a hard reset maybe (all three buttons pressed until you feel a little vibration).

    Guys, seems to me that 4.9.188 drains more than 4.9.187. I reverted to r1. 5 and battery is way happier. Let me know if it's just my impression of if it's worth reverting the update and wait for 4.9.189 to see if they solved this.

    Yeah sure, the firmware/vendor pack is safe to flash and just updates the firmware and vendor partitions. Doesn't touch system or data at all. To check volte and such, also install the magisk module through magisk manager. Ok, I'll wait 'till you feel safer :p

    Of course it's better. MIUI has an insane amount of background services and, moreover, xiaomi.eu is based on a development rom.
