Have we stopped at 7.4.20 ? Any new updates posted since then ? Can someone pls share the link to download latest update ?
I have been checking here https://miui.su/firmware_manager/model_view/323

You're checking at the right place bro. Earlier GooDDeath was pretty consistent but the mew developer 20THCENTURYFOX tends to take some weeks off. I think he'll come back with a new update in a few weeks. BTW, if you've flashed this version 7.4.20, please do share what has been different in it since the earlier versions and how's the battery life and performance. Thanks.

Yes I will definitely post my experience with this ROM however I have changed to Resurrection Remix by Dev Harsh for past 2 weeks. Yet I will be flashing this ROM again maybe tonite or tomorrow and then will post my experience once again.

But before that I must say that I am getting better Battery Life both Screen On Time as well as Standby with the Resurrection Remix and newer UI experience on Nougat over Lollipop 5.1.1 on Miui 8 China Dev. But I also get bored very fast with ROMs so MIUI 8 once again it is !!:laugh:

Doesn't RR has some screen issue. It was mentioned in the OP of the ROM. I only saw that after downloading RR, so I didn't flashed it. Also, if you have tried any other ROMs too, suggest the one with best battery and no bugs. Thanks.

The last stable RR ROM for Lenovo A6000 Plus was "RR-N-v5.8.3-20170511-a6000-Official.zip" downloaded from here:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=120740

This was the last known stable ROM of RR (last known to me at least)
Features of the ROM that suited me best:

1. Very Good Battery - Full Charge to Full Empty - SOT = 4 hours, Standby = 1.5 days, Moderate to heavy usage using Camera, 4G always ON, Bluetooth Always ON and GPS also always ON, and with this usage it gave a full 21 hours.

2. Camera is very good in this ROM using CM camera which is way better than the MIUI Camera

3. Sound output from the speakers is awesome and loud enough; yet the sound is crystal clear and no crackling whatsoever

4. With JIO Sim set to Sim1 if I switch Data to Sim 2 then the Sim 1 remains Active unlike in MIUI the Sim 1 (Jio only) goes off the network therefore I am unable to receive messages from Sim 1 eg., OTP and other service messages

5. Multi-Tasking is a breeze

6. Minimal heating of the phone while playing games or watching videos

7. Sound output over Bluetooth Streaming is what I use while driving and its a pleasure to listen to music in the car while as on MIUI 8 its not so satisfying as all Channels do not play the right sounds on MIUI.

Battery drain is eminent same as MIUI however, I have noted that in RR the battery drains really fast till it reaches around 60% and then to 45% its very slow. Thats where I do about 5-6 hours of work before it drops again really fast to 35-38% and then from there to Full Flat another 5 hours.
I use my phone purely for Business so Emails and Calling is my daily work therefore RR is best for me especially the build of 11-05-2017.

In MIUI 8 I have noted that sound out from Ear-piece is very very low and I have to ask the caller to keep on repeating however with RR ROM the sound is very good and loud enough. Same with the Speaker Phone on MIUI 8 when I am listening to an IVR then I have to be in a near quiet zone else I can barely hear the IVR unlike in RR where the sound is LOUD !!

The later RR updates of Weekly and Nightly have several bugs and glitchy sound and video output with Battery drain and heating. However, the Dev is still working on a lot of the reported issues.

Bro, Lenovo A6000 has gone a long way for official android 7.1.2 being provided by all the major ROM teams available out there, all thanks to dev_harsh1998. So there's no point for someone to flash this 5.1.1 ROM now. I personally was using this ROM for over year now. At that time this was the only ROM with weekly updates. Its been good with beautiful UI and stellar battery. And also it was pretty stable without any FCs or random reboots. ROMs of today, still are not this much stable. I just flashed AOSP ext. and RR, and AOSP is having a lot of FCs (due to webview problems, I guess) and random reboots. I would've liked to stay with MIUI but recently it too has started lagging. That's why I've been searching for alternatives. And I think I will go back to the final MIUI 7 for its best stability and fluidness; after checking the other ROMs. Actually, its my mom's phone, so I need it to be the most stable without any problems.
Many others are still using it, I can say it by seeing the 5k+ download on the latest verion. I hope the new dev comes out with a stable build soon.

Man, I can't be that unlucky. On AOSP Facebook app is not loading new content. On the preinstalled browser, the message, "webview is not properly installed" being displayed. And on RR, the UI is not much smooth. ;-(
Is it only me?
BTW, lets just not get too far away with the topic and lets stop spamming this thread.
Thanks.

Let me tell you seriously nigga. Want a stable and ROM then go for omni. I am still using April build of omni because of its battery backup and smoothness. No bugs for me.

Guys I just found that the caller's voice in both the earpiece as well as the speaker phone is very soft and I need to keep asking the caller to repeat. I am on 7.4.20 and have also tried with Stable 8.2.1.0 and same issues.
I am comparing the sound output of voice calls only over GSM (not over Whatsapp or other VOIP enabled apps) only. Sound output using Video or MP3 is pretty loud and clear.

If I use a handsfree then the sound output is quiet loud and more audible, I use a Xiaomi Bluetooth handsfree as well as a local brand called Reconnect (By Reliance) and the audio quality is pretty clear. Its not a hardware issue I know because when I use RR ROM then there is no voice quality issue.

Anyone got suggestions ?

In the update list it states improved fingerprint accuracy and also NFC?

A6000 and plus don't have fingerprint or NFC.
So what does it mean?
:confused:

    ��IT IS RECOMMENDED TO MAKE A BACKUP OF CURRENT ROM��

    1. Download The ROM

    2.Reboot To Recovery (Recommended TWRP by Jav, you can try with other)

    3.Wipe dalvik,cache,data,system.

    4. Now locate the ROM zip file and slide bottom bar to flash.
    (If it shows error 7 or whatever then try again)

    5. Reboot . Done .Enjoy

    Next time when you will reboot into Recovery you will see a new Version of TWRP recovery .

    If you want to flash a custom kernel then I suggest you to use the latest kernel by Harsh!t Jain , Phantom Reborn .It is working very well with miui and wifi problem is also fixed. It is not overclocked (thats a good thing) You can find it here . Flash the kernel after flashing ROM.
