HARDWARE MODs
DISCLAIMER
AS ALWAYS DO ON YOUR OWN RISK. HARDWARE MOD can potentially damage or burn your device
don´t come to cry if your phone xploded,nuclear blasted or melted

Use 2 sim + 1 Micro SD card at the same time

Is not that hard and will be easy for less experienced hobbyists
So here we go : (pictures are bellow)

--Micro-SIM heated above a under cup of HOT coffee or HOT tea or HARIRA for a few seconds until the plastic was soft.
--gently bent down the soft plastic then and slide the gold-plated part(chip with contact plate). This part bend in any case! Now you have a :cool:MICRONANO-SIM:cool: (still smaller than Nano-SIM).
--Super Glue MICRONANO SIM on the SD card.the sim card will be a little over the edge of the SD card, as the drawer of the phones it has a recess. (SIM is 90 degrees rotated to the SD card inserted) Had me the exact position of the SIM previously penciled in pencil on the SD card. Recommendation: During the gluing, cover the terminals of the SD card with tape to prevent superglue boils.
--DONE


PICTURES : :)por it didn´t happen:p)

Quick query - I just got the phone, and I have the global 7.1.7.0 version. So if I want to switch to the developer ROM, I just have to download the updater file, choose the package from the updater section in settings and just flash it? No need for root or bootloader unlocking?

I can't get te screenshot because I remove it.
But it's logic, the Xposed files that you uploaded are for Redmi Note 3 Hennesy (MTK) not Kenzo (SD) because MTK uses MIUI 7 based on 5.0.1 and SD uses MIUI 7 based on android 5.1.0.
SDK21 is for Android 5.0.1 and SDK22 is for Android 5.1.0 You known what I mean?

I downloaded it from here and it works (look at "*MIUI 6/7 BASED ON Android 5.1.X only" section, 64-bit processor)

The unlocking method with the Dev ROM doesn't work for me :( It still says that "Your device isn't supported by Mi Unlock"

Weird !!! I unlocked it same as the guide !!
make sure you connect phone to MI account and phone number
If not working you are from the bad uck guys and YOU HAVE to apply for unlock permission here en.miui.com/unlock !!! and wait until you have confirmation SMS with password to unlock
After you get permission to unlock try again

Hi @Perfectdevil

Firstly, thank you very much for creating this thread for the Redmi Note 3 PRO.

Second, please check the information in your OP. The China DEV ROM 6.3.17 does indeed have ROOT - you just need to enable it from the Security/Permissions App. This will download and install an update providing native root access. It's not quite as useful as SuperSU but it does work.

Please check your instructions for loading TWRP because this method (which was originally posted by @feds64 on Mi Forums) does not result in a permanent TWRP installation. (TWRP disappears after reboot). This is all explained in thread on MI forums, and the only way to get it to work is to flash a cracked boot.img.

Without a lasting TWRP (or with stock recovery only) things like Flashify just won't work. So we can't use Flashify to flash Xposed without TWRP. And if you have TWRP, then Flashify is not necessary.

Anyway, look forward to more info here.

    HARDWARE MODs
    DISCLAIMER
    AS ALWAYS DO ON YOUR OWN RISK. HARDWARE MOD can potentially damage or burn your device
    don´t come to cry if your phone xploded,nuclear blasted or melted

    Use 2 sim + 1 Micro SD card at the same time

    Is not that hard and will be easy for less experienced hobbyists
    So here we go : (pictures are bellow)

    --Micro-SIM heated above a under cup of HOT coffee or HOT tea or HARIRA for a few seconds until the plastic was soft.
    --gently bent down the soft plastic then and slide the gold-plated part(chip with contact plate). This part bend in any case! Now you have a :cool:MICRONANO-SIM:cool: (still smaller than Nano-SIM).
    --Super Glue MICRONANO SIM on the SD card.the sim card will be a little over the edge of the SD card, as the drawer of the phones it has a recess. (SIM is 90 degrees rotated to the SD card inserted) Had me the exact position of the SIM previously penciled in pencil on the SD card. Recommendation: During the gluing, cover the terminals of the SD card with tape to prevent superglue boils.
    --DONE
