Have you updated your phone to 6.11.24?.try that..And try locking the app in the multitasking menu by swiping it down.

Is there any way to know beforehand which fingerprint scanner your device will have? I'm interested in running Cyanogenmod only which officially supports the FPC1020 one, but not the Goodix.
Maybe international vs chinese version?
This really makes or breaks my decision so any knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Don't feel like gambling and I don't wanna return it to china or let it collect dust in a drawer.
Otherwise this seems like a great device.
Thanks in advance!

Another thing I have the ZCX recovery with Support MIUI-OTA option enabled. But can't flash the incremental updates first time. I have to download the whole update every time :(

You can lock an app by sliding it down in the multitasking menu and tapping the lock button.(screenshot attached)

I cannot tell you much about ZCX as I am still trying to unlock my phone and I am stuck with "couldn't verify device : current account is different from the account info on the device" :rolleyes:. Still you can check out this thread it has an FAQ section in the OP try those steps.

Thanks for the reply :)
I am having the same issue. My unlocking is also stuck at 50%. One guy said just apply again with a different mail ID. After I received uthorization I am able to unlock it.

    i have REDMI NOTE 3 KENZO SNAPDRAGON VERSION 3GB
    RUNNING ON latest global stable miui 8.1.1.0, android 6.0.1
    i have zc -x recovery ( unlocked officially and rooted)
    now
    Q1) if i want to backup my rom which partitions should i select, in case of if i made any mistake and want to restore?
    like if i flashed some wrong zip, and now facing bootloop
    To get rid of bootloop, i can use twrp backup?
    Q2) in case if i dont have twrp backup, and want to flash fastboot rom but dont want to lose internal storage? what should i do, there is no option for clean_all_except_storage.bat? in mi flash tool latest one

    i do not to erase my internal everytime i flash with mi flash tool

    Q3) if i can access twrp and want to copy backup from computer or otg how can i do it?
    because if i attach phone in recovery mode, it is not showing my device internal storage in my pc! just showing phone is attached under adb interface

    thank you
    For question 1
    Do the backup of all the partitions, but while restoring *very important* UNCHECK firmware_emmc and firmware_ROM or you'll end up bricking your device and loosing all the data on the internal storage and only MiFlash will save you

    Don't know the answer to your second question, infact I have the same query..

    For question 3
    MTP doesn't work for me too (ZCX recovery), the workaround is connecting a USB OTG storage device and mounting it, then using the file manager under the advance section to copy the files on it.. After the mount USB storage device shows up on the bottom of the "/" path.

    I was going to unlock my bootloader here but then I decided to check xda first before clicking apply on the bootloader unlock request page. I didn't seem to find any guide here on xda telling me to use that page. Why is that?

    So should I use the official method or one of the guides (and if so could someone link me a good up-to-date guide). Also I assume warranty is void when unlocking the bootloader but could someone confirm that because it doesn't say that on the request unlock page.

    Xiaomi policy says that you won't be voiding your warranty by unlocking the device. Also, I personally had a chat with the customer care team and they told me that if your device is in warranty, you can get your device fixed if it gets soft-bricked or even hard-bricked. So you shouldn't hesitate about unlocking the device. ;)

    What is the best ROM for Note 3 SD, that has good battery life and voLTE supported along with all major functions and at least MM.

    MiUi marshmallow. LOL!!! CyanogenMod is always better. Try cyanogenmod.
