I didn"t try any rom for now because i just receive the phone and i didn't get the protection.. but when i reading any post on the forum i suggest to you try MuiMix or Xiaomi.eu and leave feedback here or in the rom thread.

just took a peek back after so long and was excited to see a new and official rom for our phones, ill give a short review in a few days since im somewhat busy,. hopefully others can chime in with their experience

also, any thread/info on the dragonfire kernel found in your 'another custom rom' section? shouldnt it be also included with the LOLZ kernel in the same section? i found no TL:DR info for it. must be a custom kernel built for our phone

What's the current status on this, what's the most stable, complete (i.e. everything works) and featureful ROM for Redmi 8?

I'm at the dawn of my phone's custrom age, and you could save me some pain if you'd tell me your opinion. What's the best one for daily use, if you like fancy things and hate things not working?

unfortunately for us the only way to know is to try them all out since theyre all still new (@skittels15 and @IAmDeadlylxrd ). download and usage stats do say hundreds, but many of users arent here. itd be much better if they were all encouraged to join the XDA and share their experiences but yeah, what else can we do?

im currently on crdroid 07-05 and honestly i find it stable enough for daily usage (i dont play games on droids). apart from 100% 'my bads' i havent noticed anything major, @mrjoker18 has tried a ton of them though.

and honestly with the current ROM devs, id suggest to not try GSIs

To answer my own question: I'm on the SakuraOS official ROM for the past few days, and it is literally flawless. Everything works down to the tiniest stuffs, no glitches despite my serious tweaking and testing, and it's super smooth, pretty and customizable. SafetyNet works too.

Frankly, it feels like a proper manufacturer OS. Better than the original MIUI.

I also tried DotOS before it for a week, which was nice, but had a few glitches. GPS didn't work, couldn't record video with the included camera app, and I had some random reboot and freezes. I also prefer SakuraOS's look TBH.

Аll @IAmDeadlylxrd's and my roms tested and not have critical bugs and recommended for daily use. Don't panic about bugs. And all roms tested by maintainers and some users from our Telegram-communities. All roms is tested before release to public.

About DotOS: this rom have bugged sourcecode. All device-specified bugs was fixed long time ago in device tree. All roms have only rom's source-specified bugs.

dont take it the wrong way guys, im very thankful to you guys for porting ROMs here. i just havent tried the other releases thats why i said us forum users have to take a test run as most people dont comment on their experiences here. itd be nice if the telegram community could also come here and say hi from time to time
