Note:

I personally don't own a Mi5s Plus, but only a Mi5s so I can't directly test builds.
Anyway Xiaomi msm8996 devices share source code, so there shouldn't be many differences between what I face on my device and what is faced on Mi5s Plus.

Appeared in the row of the second SIM although it is not.

Appeared in the second line SIM, although it is not. Need a solution. In the rest of the until good core. I test further.
P.s. If you put the SIM in the first slot, then all is well.

I have installed this kernel yesterday.
I think by using this kernel, when used, the battery feels more efficient, smooth performance.
but when the phone is in a state of stanby I think the battery endurance is the same as I use stock kernel.
by the way i am using rom aosp ex latest version android 8.1
