General Don't disable MIUI Optimizations on the Redmi Note 10 Pro [Max] (and other issues...)

Search This thread
Even though disabling MIUI Optimizations allows you to have a true always on display and brings back the good old native android share menu (with Copy to Clipboard and Nearby Share), it breaks the ROM in many other places:
  1. You cannot open files on any app (File Manager, WhatsApp, Google Drive, etc.) No PDFs or other files will open.
  2. All permissions will be reset.
  3. Touch gestures like 3-finger screenshot will stop working.
  4. Battery will drain extremely fast. (Even faster than it is already draining)
  5. UI will start stuttering more than usual.
I suggest waiting for OTAs until Xiaomi fixes all of the numerous issues with this ROM. I've also compiled a list of all the issues I'm currently facing:

1. Extreme stuttering and exceptionally low touch responsiveness. 60Hz mode is even more unusable. It stutters like a 2010 phone.
2. Notification UI messed up: Actions not aligned properly, Facebook notifications not showing up properly, and don't show up at all. Android 11's 3-way split that gave conversations priority is completely removed!
3. Text Selection Menu (Context Menu) Hijacking: Critical context menu options don't show up in the hijacked menu! I can't format text in telegram without the context menu!
4. Share Menu Hijacking: Does not have the Copy to Clipboard or Nearby Share options, making it effectively useless. Need to swipe about 100 times to get to the app I want.
5. Disabling MIUI Optimizations fixes [4], but then we can't open any files in the OS! PDFs, Excel Sheets, nothing open! (Permission Denied).
6. Control Center Home features not working: crashes on click, hold.
7. Battery Drain issue: The 2-day battery effectively lasts half a day. Again: tested with 60Hz and all "recommended battery fixes".
8. Settings button in Control Center requires double tap. A single tap never opens it.
9. Always-On UI not actually "Always On." Again, disabling MIUI Optimizations just makes the phone unusable.
10. Proximity sensor just doesn't work. I think it uses heuristics based on mobile orientation and top-speaker ultrasound, but yeah, that definitely needs to be fixed.
11. Missing NFC toggle. Not sure how to even enable it.
12. Magnetometer incorrect readings: it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Probably a software issue.
13. Gestures don't work at all in third party launchers and literally make the phone impossible to control without the three nav buttons, which is scary.
14. Auto-rotate doesn't work as expected: Even after rotating the phone, it needs an extra wiggle and a tilt forward to activate it.
15. Notifications just don't pop-up! WhatsApp Web can't connect to WA unless it is running in the background. Facebook notifications don't pop up until the app is opened. MIUI just disabled all background apps in an effort to better manage the RAM and Battery, but as we clearly see, it doesn't work.
16. Google Discover on MIUI Launcher glitches out of bounds.
17. Add a white border instead of black border when the front camera is in use. The black border is hardly noticeable when the front camera is being used.

This list is still pretty incomplete, but I hope they start working on at least these first.

    It is hard to believe that miui is having these many issues/bugs...only custom ROMs can save.

    I'm also having almost all problems you mentioned.

    Redmi note 10 pro (sweetin)
    MIUI global 12.0.6.0 stable
    Bootloader locked


    MIUI have sooo many bugs. I will wait for 12.0.8 update. If bugs are fixed I will wait further for 12.5 update, else will install custom rom and will say final goodbye to MIUI

    I'm on sweetinpro 12.0.6.0/12.0.8.0 on Stock with locked Bootloader. It's so frustrating that they haven't fixed trivial issues in the ROM and removed fundamental features. 🤦🏻

    I'm not having any of the mentioned issues here on my redmi note 10 pro 6/128GB sweetpro, bootloader locked. I disabled MIUI optimization right of the bat, and debloated all the xiaomi crap with this tool . I was running the latest MIUI global 12.0.10 and just updated today to MIUI 12.0.13 RKFEUXM. Still no issues. Also my battery is pretty fine, more than a day and I am heavy user (and gamer)

    Regarding some of the issues (I have Redmi Note 10 Pro with global MIUI 12.0.10):
    1. Extreme stuttering and exceptionally low touch responsiveness. 60Hz mode is even more unusable. It stutters like a 2010 phone.
    Touch responsivenes does behave strange and fails sometimes. I haven't noticed any stuttering though, the 730G works pretty well for me.
    2. Notification UI messed up: Actions not aligned properly, Facebook notifications not showing up properly, and don't show up at all. Android 11's 3-way split that gave conversations priority is completely removed!
    This is very annoying and definitly needs to get fixed asap. Some notificaciones are really messed up, like chat notifications that pop up showing a different person (wrong profile and name, happens on whatsapp and Telegram).
    6. Control Center Home features not working: crashes on click, hold.
    Mine works fine.
    7. Battery Drain issue: The 2-day battery effectively lasts half a day. Again: tested with 60Hz and all "recommended battery fixes".
    After a full day I still have 50% battery, so no problem on mine.
    8. Settings button in Control Center requires double tap. A single tap never opens it.
    Just tested and it worked with 1 tap.
    9. Always-On UI not actually "Always On." Again, disabling MIUI Optimizations just makes the phone unusable.
    Unfortunately I bet Xiaomi did this on purpose to keep Always On Display away from the low-mid end phones, just like the Mi 10 Lite 5G.
    11. Missing NFC toggle. Not sure how to even enable it.
    You mean the NFC icon in control center? I mine was just not enabled. It can be enabled with the "edit" function on the control center.
    15. Notifications just don't pop-up! WhatsApp Web can't connect to WA unless it is running in the background. Facebook notifications don't pop up until the app is opened. MIUI just disabled all background apps in an effort to better manage the RAM and Battery, but as we clearly see, it doesn't work.
    Mine do pop up. Try disabling MIUI optimization for these apps, it's what I did.

    Turns out, all the problems I've mentioned are specifically with the Indian version of the Global ROM. We're at 12.0.6.0/12.0.8.0, and they've also removed the option to "disable MIUI Optimazations" from the developer menu. It now requires specifically resetting developer options.

    You are correct about disabling MIUI optimization. My advice is don't touch it at all, not even once. I always find that down the road weird things will happen to my phone. Perhaps some problems that you are having, were the result of disabling it, even though you've turned it back on now. If it was me, I'd go for a factory data reset and see what happens.

    Yeah but if you want to use third party apps like YTVanced or Aurora Store for example disabling MIUI optimization is the only solution

    Almost all the issues that OP stated in his post are true, it also happens to my unit which is the Indonesian unit with MIUI 12.0.4.0.

    The most annoying one is the WA & Telegram notification issue, not only they messed up in order but the Action button is also misaligned. Seems like Xiaomi's dev team is not aware of this issue at all. Pretty unprofessional, however, this is what we deserved by buying a Xiaomi phone.

    Due to all of these issues which I'm not confident will be solved in a timely manner by their dev team, I already made a post in my local adboard to sell my 1 week old RN 10 Pro and I will just buy the Samsung device again.

    Yup I know... that's why it's a bummer.

    For YTVanced, just go to the old versions page in the download site of vancedapp.com.

    Then manually download the microg for "14.21.54 and above" and install it. MIUI will allow this version to be installed. Then I downloaded YTVanced 14.21.54 and installed and using it.

    The only reason I wanted to turn off MIUI optimizations is to install YTVanced, but since this method works, I don't mind anymore.

    I know MIUI "optimizations" is a real PITA, but so far there seems to be workarounds for some of the shortcomings.

    Once official stable custom roms are available, I'll flash to these. Right now there are 3 custom roms available, but these are newly released. Need to wait and see if others have problems or not. Once the roms are matured enough, then will be worth to migrate.

    P.S. - Using Sweet Global 8/128.

    No need to take drastic measures.

    Xiaomi is actually rooter-friendly. They allow official bootloader-unlocking, although the process takes long.

    Their phones, especially the Redmi Note series are some of the best value phones you can ever find.
    This is more true with this Note 10 Pro. I mean it's using Amoled and 120Hz screen with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM wirh NFC, 3.5" jack, IR, FM radio and a huge battery. Even other more expensive flagships don't have all at one place. And the combination of features are only available in higher end flagships of other phones which cost so much more.

    And let's not forget Samsung's notorious Knox counter. Even wirh Magisk Hide, some bank apps look for this counter and you can't use a rooted phone with bank apps and some other telco-apps. They look for this Knox-counter trips.

    Xiaomi community is very active. There are already 3 custom roms available for Sweet. And there will be many to come. So you can already try these new roms and get rid of MIUI "optimizations" completely.

    For me, i am waiting for the roms to get ironed out from it's new beginnings and let them mature with any fixes before I change my ROM. Need to make sure everything works properly before jumping ship.

    By the time I make that post a few weeks ago, my Sweet has been sold in only 1 hour since the ad went online. Currently, I'm back with the Samsung bandwagon (I bought the brand new A52 LTE) and really really happy with it :D With this great midrange, I did not miss anything from my previous Samsung phone, the S10.

    I agree with you, Xiaomi makes good phones with unbeatable hardware specs to performance ratio, but this is the software that we will interact every day with, not the underlying hardware.

    Gone are the days I spent countless hours trying every custom ROM available in our beloved XDA forums, now I just want the phone that just works without any major or annoying issue.

      Even though disabling MIUI Optimizations allows you to have a true always on display and brings back the good old native android share menu (with Copy to Clipboard and Nearby Share), it breaks the ROM in many other places:
      1. You cannot open files on any app (File Manager, WhatsApp, Google Drive, etc.) No PDFs or other files will open.
      2. All permissions will be reset.
      3. Touch gestures like 3-finger screenshot will stop working.
      4. Battery will drain extremely fast. (Even faster than it is already draining)
      5. UI will start stuttering more than usual.
      I suggest waiting for OTAs until Xiaomi fixes all of the numerous issues with this ROM. I've also compiled a list of all the issues I'm currently facing:

      1. Extreme stuttering and exceptionally low touch responsiveness. 60Hz mode is even more unusable. It stutters like a 2010 phone.
      2. Notification UI messed up: Actions not aligned properly, Facebook notifications not showing up properly, and don't show up at all. Android 11's 3-way split that gave conversations priority is completely removed!
      3. Text Selection Menu (Context Menu) Hijacking: Critical context menu options don't show up in the hijacked menu! I can't format text in telegram without the context menu!
      4. Share Menu Hijacking: Does not have the Copy to Clipboard or Nearby Share options, making it effectively useless. Need to swipe about 100 times to get to the app I want.
      5. Disabling MIUI Optimizations fixes [4], but then we can't open any files in the OS! PDFs, Excel Sheets, nothing open! (Permission Denied).
      6. Control Center Home features not working: crashes on click, hold.
      7. Battery Drain issue: The 2-day battery effectively lasts half a day. Again: tested with 60Hz and all "recommended battery fixes".
      8. Settings button in Control Center requires double tap. A single tap never opens it.
      9. Always-On UI not actually "Always On." Again, disabling MIUI Optimizations just makes the phone unusable.
      10. Proximity sensor just doesn't work. I think it uses heuristics based on mobile orientation and top-speaker ultrasound, but yeah, that definitely needs to be fixed.
      11. Missing NFC toggle. Not sure how to even enable it.
      12. Magnetometer incorrect readings: it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Probably a software issue.
      13. Gestures don't work at all in third party launchers and literally make the phone impossible to control without the three nav buttons, which is scary.
      14. Auto-rotate doesn't work as expected: Even after rotating the phone, it needs an extra wiggle and a tilt forward to activate it.
      15. Notifications just don't pop-up! WhatsApp Web can't connect to WA unless it is running in the background. Facebook notifications don't pop up until the app is opened. MIUI just disabled all background apps in an effort to better manage the RAM and Battery, but as we clearly see, it doesn't work.
      16. Google Discover on MIUI Launcher glitches out of bounds.
      17. Add a white border instead of black border when the front camera is in use. The black border is hardly noticeable when the front camera is being used.

      This list is still pretty incomplete, but I hope they start working on at least these first.

      12. Magnetometer incorrect readings: it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Probably a software issue.
      13. Gestures don't work at all in third party launchers and literally make the phone impossible to control without the three nav buttons, which is scary.
      14. Auto-rotate doesn't work as expected: Even after rotating the phone, it needs an extra wiggle and a tilt forward to activate it.
      15. Notifications just don't pop-up! WhatsApp Web can't connect to WA unless it is running in the background. Facebook notifications don't pop up until the app is opened. MIUI just disabled all background apps in an effort to better manage the RAM and Battery, but as we clearly see, it doesn't work.
      16. Google Discover on MIUI Launcher glitches out of bounds.
      17. Add a white border instead of black border when the front camera is in use. The black border is hardly noticeable when the front camera is being used.

      This list is still pretty incomplete, but I hope they start working on at least these first.


      It is hard to believe that miui is having these many issues/bugs...only custom ROMs can save.
      1
      Even though disabling MIUI Optimizations allows you to have a true always on display and brings back the good old native android share menu (with Copy to Clipboard and Nearby Share), it breaks the ROM in many other places:
      1. You cannot open files on any app (File Manager, WhatsApp, Google Drive, etc.) No PDFs or other files will open.
      2. All permissions will be reset.
      3. Touch gestures like 3-finger screenshot will stop working.
      4. Battery will drain extremely fast. (Even faster than it is already draining)
      5. UI will start stuttering more than usual.
      I suggest waiting for OTAs until Xiaomi fixes all of the numerous issues with this ROM. I've also compiled a list of all the issues I'm currently facing:

      1. Extreme stuttering and exceptionally low touch responsiveness. 60Hz mode is even more unusable. It stutters like a 2010 phone.
      2. Notification UI messed up: Actions not aligned properly, Facebook notifications not showing up properly, and don't show up at all. Android 11's 3-way split that gave conversations priority is completely removed!
      3. Text Selection Menu (Context Menu) Hijacking: Critical context menu options don't show up in the hijacked menu! I can't format text in telegram without the context menu!
      4. Share Menu Hijacking: Does not have the Copy to Clipboard or Nearby Share options, making it effectively useless. Need to swipe about 100 times to get to the app I want.
      5. Disabling MIUI Optimizations fixes [4], but then we can't open any files in the OS! PDFs, Excel Sheets, nothing open! (Permission Denied).
      6. Control Center Home features not working: crashes on click, hold.
      7. Battery Drain issue: The 2-day battery effectively lasts half a day. Again: tested with 60Hz and all "recommended battery fixes".
      8. Settings button in Control Center requires double tap. A single tap never opens it.
      9. Always-On UI not actually "Always On." Again, disabling MIUI Optimizations just makes the phone unusable.
      10. Proximity sensor just doesn't work. I think it uses heuristics based on mobile orientation and top-speaker ultrasound, but yeah, that definitely needs to be fixed.
      11. Missing NFC toggle. Not sure how to even enable it.
      12. Magnetometer incorrect readings: it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Probably a software issue.
      13. Gestures don't work at all in third party launchers and literally make the phone impossible to control without the three nav buttons, which is scary.
      14. Auto-rotate doesn't work as expected: Even after rotating the phone, it needs an extra wiggle and a tilt forward to activate it.
      15. Notifications just don't pop-up! WhatsApp Web can't connect to WA unless it is running in the background. Facebook notifications don't pop up until the app is opened. MIUI just disabled all background apps in an effort to better manage the RAM and Battery, but as we clearly see, it doesn't work.
      16. Google Discover on MIUI Launcher glitches out of bounds.
      17. Add a white border instead of black border when the front camera is in use. The black border is hardly noticeable when the front camera is being used.

      This list is still pretty incomplete, but I hope they start working on at least these first.
      I'm also having almost all problems you mentioned.

      Redmi note 10 pro (sweetin)
      MIUI global 12.0.6.0 stable
      Bootloader locked


      MIUI have sooo many bugs. I will wait for 12.0.8 update. If bugs are fixed I will wait further for 12.5 update, else will install custom rom and will say final goodbye to MIUI

      I'm on sweetinpro 12.0.6.0/12.0.8.0 on Stock with locked Bootloader. It's so frustrating that they haven't fixed trivial issues in the ROM and removed fundamental features. 🤦🏻

      You are correct about disabling MIUI optimization. My advice is don't touch it at all, not even once. I always find that down the road weird things will happen to my phone. Perhaps some problems that you are having, were the result of disabling it, even though you've turned it back on now. If it was me, I'd go for a factory data reset and see what happens.
