AOSP 5.1.1 for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (kenzo)
Based on leaked Xiaomi 5.1.1 AOSP ROM (Build 300)
Cleaned, prerooted and fingerprint compatible

Prologue
I've decided to take the time and hack together a quick TWRP-compatible ZIP of the leaked AOSP ROM with a few goodies on top so that we have at least one stable non-MIUI ROM to keep us going until CM13 is ready for daily driving.

Before people ask:
  • This ROM doesn't have OTA support, and it won't be updated on a regularly basis.
  • Yes, its capable of daily-driving with no big issues whatsoever.
  • Yes, you need a unlocked bootloader to flash this (the unofficial bootloader unlock will work however).
  • It's prerooted, pre-gapped and pre-xposed, so you will have essentially everything you will ever need already there.

Changes (when compared to the originally leaked AOSP ROM)
  • Overlapping No-SIM Symbol has been removed
  • Redundant SPN Debug Overlays have been removed
  • Debug Buttons have been removed from the Recent Apps View
  • APK Signature Check has been disabled in the Framework
  • Debug applications have been removed
  • Fingerprint reader support has been added
  • SuperSU (Free) has been pre-installed
  • Gapps are bundled
  • Xposed is bundled
  • Default language / region has been changed to en-US
  • Merged SIM Signal Bars
  • Translated Fingerprint implementation into several languages
  • logd is disabled (as to avoid sdcard logspam)

Donations
Should you wish to support this (or other projects of mine), please consider donating a few bucks to me via PayPal.

Alternatively, if you like the general idea of bringing proper Android support to badly supported devices (mostly China-Phones), please consider becoming a patron to my "Bring CyanogenMod to China-Phones" movement over at Patreon by pledging a few dollars every month to move me closer to the goal of doing this for a living instead of only squeezing in a few hours every week next to my regular work.

Every support, no matter how tiny, is appreciated (but of course not required).

Yes, apps opens longer than in miui. Some lag in scrolling presist. Snapdragon Camera not optimised and works even worse than stock.
If you dont want AOSP by all means its better to stick with Global ROM for now. Only pros of this firmware is AOSP interface and good signal strength.

I tried it now, but no noticeable change happen. Also AOSP already have high battery drain, so this is not good solution.
Chrome just stop responding to touch on fast scrolling for a second in this thread.
