Hello guys, I was planning to build a rom from source so that we can start integrating different custom roms for our devices. I have a rig with good specs and a good internet connection too. What roms do you suggest to build?

I was kinda planning to build anything that's possible since our Device Tree and Vendor Blobs is now available. I think this is a good opportunity.
Kindly leave some suggestions, I'm just a newbie.

But, why custom?
I really prefer the original stock ROM and keep the system unchanged.
So I love magisk, because I can root without having to modify the system.
Together, Xposed, XprivacyLua, Adblocker and TitaniumBackup are all perfectly fine.
MIUI lag like crap and drains battery crazy, at least on my phone.

If an O.S. developed by many, many people who are paid to develop this, has lags,
why won't an O.S. developed by one or two people have lags too?
If your battery is discharging quickly, just track battery usage and see what's draining excessively.
hmmm I must have bought a fake Device with a cheap 3rd party battery and Dual core 2012 MTK processor, or the many, many people are hired mainly not to develop the OS, but hired for inserting pernament adware and bloatware in the Device so that they could earn extra money.

Probably you must to buy an iphone.
I kind of hate apple Locked crap. The system updates destroys the nice flagship, and if you do not update, they will greet you by not allowing you to install any app.
Samsung is nice for me, but if you hate Samsung, I have nothing to say.

I guess you've never used Custom roms.

Custom roms perform better than MIUI, No bloatware by default and they have a better UI.

:ROFLMAO: That's the issue with Xiaomi, good hardware, poor software. They are able to provide cheap smartphones only due to earning money from ads in the softwares. Let's see development for Note 9 is going good now, almost every bug is fixed and device tree is stable, forums for note 9 should be filled with roms within time.

I don't like to waste my time with not trusted things.
If you don't like MIUI, certainly you should not buy a Xiaomi phone.
I prefer systemless modifications.
If you have enough time for wasting, it is not my problem.

We aren't expressing what we like or what we don't, We're telling a man what to build. So please if you don't like custom roms, you may leave this thread.

Talking about "not trusted" , Custom roms are better in terms of privacy too and are trusted.
Saying a custom rom can't be trusted is one of the dumbest thing you could say on a tech platform with tons of custom roms threads.

Then you should not, and never come to this thread as we are talking about custom roms, and talking that you love to stay on MIUI will be a waste of time.

There are thousands, if not millions, of people using custom roms on a Xiaomi phone and not a single one said their phones are hacked due to the custom rom. To say the least, Even MIUI is not close to being trusted as soon as you unlocked the bootloader.

Who is trying to persuad anybody ?
Who cares for what O.S. you will use ?
I'm givin my opinion.
If you don't like my opinion, well, who cares ?

Xiaomi builded the phone. So, I trust on Xiaomi O.S.
Anybody can build an O.S., so I prefer to keep with Xiaomi O.S.
If you prefer to use an O.S. builded by anybody that will never update it, well, it is your problem.
I prefer to keep with original stock rom.
It is my opinion.

Custom roms are regularly updated, they have maintainers for specific devices who update the rom regularly, with security patches. Please do not speak of something which you don't know of.

Any more replies to this will be ignored, Since you clearly don't know what you're talking about and this is going OFF-TOPIC.

    Friendly reminder from the moderation team:

    Please stay on topic(custom rom), as this is not a discussion thread about general rom preferences like stock rom.

    Thank you!

    We only like opinions that is contributive according to the title: Building custom roms from source for the Device codenamed Merlin. This thread will become a development thread as soon as a dev posts information, eta or problem about building a rom.

    Then, I am sorry for calling out that this was a bust. I came here for information and to stop a senseless dispute by putting myself into it in the process. So in general, I need to erase system and vendor in order for me to flash the Indonesian fastboot rom. So, in your experience, what variant is your phone before you customized it?
    Global varient. Basically, the varient of the phone isn't important, the firmware that it's running is.

    Before you go on to install custom roms and stuff, I'd recommend you to backup your IMEI for your own safety, just in case if your phone is bricked due to any mistake and needs format, you could restore IMEI back after wipe.

    (Note to anyone who considers this is promotion: I do not own the YouTube channel and neither I'm affiliated with it by any means, and the video has not been monetized.)

    Good luck flashing, let's forget the previous argument and move on :)

    But, why custom?
    I really prefer the original stock ROM and keep the system unchanged.
    So I love magisk, because I can root without having to modify the system.
    Together, Xposed, XprivacyLua, Adblocker and TitaniumBackup are all perfectly fine.
