Heads up, there seems to be an error in the device path in META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script which causes installation to fail (/system won't get mounted).

/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/11230000.MSDC0/by-name

on my particular phone this needs to be changed to....

/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name

you need to update TWRP to 3.2.3 or 3.3.1.
you can download it from (from here):

I updated to 3.3.1 in the process of trying to get the rom to install. I'll give your build of TWRP a try at some point.

Nice work by the way :good:. I've not tested extensively yet, but it boots up and appears to work without any obvious problems.

Dude, THANK YOU SO MUCH for this! I am so grateful :)

It works flawlessly and you gave life to my old phone.

BTW does anyone know any good Camera app? Or if you can enable Camera2Api in this device?

Thank you in advance

Footej Camera works perfectly for me. But tbh i didn't test any other camera apps. so if u found any better camera app u can share it here to the rest of users.

[Mega Download Link: See above]

Just downloaded the app, and it is pretty much better than any other had already tested.

Thank you again mate, you made my day :D

Ok so dirty flash was a huge fail for me so did a clean flash and EVERYTHING works great in fact it feels like a brand new phone.. DAMN it's great again... Having used LineageOS 14 and being hugely disappointed by it this rom is a MASSIVE BREATH OF FRESH AIR.. And has actually made my RN2 USEFUL again.... Thank you for your excellent hardwork...

one questions I have
How do I change from SU to Magikdisk, ???


So happy with this rom... Thank you for everything

anyone flash MAGIK and XPOSED mods yet????


Just friggin loving this rom.... only issue I have had is occassionly it disconnects from WIFI and then take a long time to reconnect... other than that all works great.

for those wanting a better camera all the following work great

manual camera fx
open camera
camera zoom fx
rectrica
bandacam
DSLR camera

all with similar results and all pretty damn good.

possible second issue


if I add or change unlock pin code... RN2 just locks up... have to pull battery out, once rebooted code has been changed and can unlock phone fine after that... seems too be the initial action of adding or changing it that causes issue.

my sim cards don't seem to work on this rom. i've had this issue before in RR 5.8.5 and the only way to fix it is just to reboot my phone and voila, it's fixed, but in this rom it can't even read my sim cards at all

edit :
sim 1 is working as of right now. i just had to wait for it to work though the signal cluster icons don't show that it does. sim 2 is still not working

i have successfully installed both magisk and xposed. they both work like a charm thus far. i'll let you know if there's anything going on

    Is there any possible way to control the device remotely on these xiaomi phones ?
    I mean to actually be able to navigate to phone menu etc , with anydesk / teamviewer or their likes .

    The rom works flawlessly but I still can't control the screen with it and I initially thought it was a problem with the stock rom only
