[SIZE=+2]Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)[/SIZE]​
NOTE: This is still WIP and may subject to change without any notification.

Q: How many variants of Redmi 3?
A: There are ONLY two variants of Redmi 3: The regular one with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, and Prime/Pro one with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and fingerprint support. Both of them have same codename (ido).

Q: Why the 3GB variant named Prime/Pro?
A: The actual intention is to distinguish the 3GB variant from 2GB (regular) one. It has been already like that since Mi Note era, where Pro variant brings better hardware than the regular one.

Q: How to reboot to recovery mode?
A: If you've flashed TWRP, you could access recovery mode by the combo of Vol(+) + Vol(-) + Power button at the same time.

Q: Will Redmi 3 ROM work on Redmi 3S?
A: No, it won't. Redmi 3S is shipped with different hardware. I'm looking on you, newcomers who are unable to view properly the subforum/thread name.

I can't boot into recovery mode after flashing TWRP. When I hold power up and power, the phone just shows me the MI logo and nothing happens.

I also have the same thing. However, fastboot commands seems to workaround it.
Code:
$ fastboot boot <recovery-name>

Other way is to reboot to recovery from the OS.

EDIT: Someone below me has the true answer.

What's the camera sensor using on rear camera?
What's the problem no F2FS on system while switching on TWRP?
And how much battery drain on CM?

1) Maybe someone after me knows that...
2) Switching system partition to F2FS is worthless; ROM script may format it back to ext4 upon flashing ROM.
3) Battery life depends on your usage, configuration, and many more. I'm unable to measure it on my Redmi 3 Pro because I always flash test kernels I compiled.

I try when used MIUI before, then go to Mechanical Mode (CMIIW, the sensor on rear is untitle except for front camera is using qtech sensor.

Your redmi 3 is not for daily use? I hope it you continue custom kernel since this device is still low devs support :)

Oh yes one more question:
Does tweak camer.zip for Redmi 3 is usable huh? i found it on yandex cloud :D

1) It's my backup driver. I only use it if my ZenFone 2 goes in the trouble, after all.
2) Sure. I just wonder why no one wants to do it. zhafron is banned, yantz only for MIUI (?), also Sensei is going nowhere with it's sources nuked. So, I guess I'll be the only solo player on LineageOS 14.1, LOL.
3) I never heard it until today. So, I didn't test it yet.

1) Absolutely yes. Probably due to his ROM's download links.
2) Actually the difficulty on building kernels on SD615 and SD616 is nearly same. Shown by how easy I include thunderplug from tomato, and how I cherry-pick commits from faizauthar's kernel for Mi4i.
3) Will try.

You could check it on a simple menu in MIUI's developer options.

    Switch off your phone then hold Vol +, Vol - and power.

    kras is there any way to improve our camera quality?like google camera perhaps?or something?
    If only HAL1 support isn't forced, we can try enable HAL3 with build.prop edit and use ported Google Camera and see the results. Otherwise I don't know.
