Hello lovely community,

I'm getting sick and tired of the stock MIUI launcher. I want something more simple, but the big issue for me, is the ability to use gestures.

I've tried third party launcher along side Fluid Navigation Gestures app, but I don't think it's smooth enough. And it's unrealiable, because the app might crash at some point.

My question is: what's the best solution to this problem?

I am willing to install a custom rom, in case that solves the problem.

This rom is very good.
So I guess that another rom fixes the problem? Are you able to use third party launcher along side with gestures and no navigation bar?

Also, have you noticed any bugs? I've tried other Roms before, I just want something that is somewhat stable. Not too many bugs.

Maybe you would like to try Neo Launcher. It's part of the foss Neo applications suite, and with a very active development.
You can find it in git-hub, F-Droid, its Telegram group...

I was actually hoping to do Niagara or something in that direction.
Does Neo Launcher provide gestures or does it work with the one MIUI offers?

I'm just looking for the best option for Gesture navigation + third party launcher.

Yes it includes gesture navigation and they work, but I've not fully tested all of them.
IMHO you should give a try k no need to install anything)

Ended up installing Pixel Experience Plus and it worked like a charm. Now I use Niagara with system gestures.

Positive experience! Haven't had any issues so far, and the rom seems to have much more to offer than MIUI.
This phone would have been insane with a decent OS. Such a shame that MIUI is so crappy.

Link to the custom rom:

Tried out your solution, but it didn't integrate with the built in gestures. As soon as I install the launcher, it will turn on button navigation and I cannot enable gestures.
