We need that recovery from dev site to flash this ROM or can flash over TWRP?
Is there anything in this ROM what do not work as it should?
Just use TWRP. This AOKP-recovery is just a basic recovery, which isn't needed at all. With CyanogenMod-ROMs there was also always a recovery-program added. - But I must admit, I never checked out these recoveries.

A strange thing happened today, when I woke up this morning, my phone gave error msg, no simcard detected,tried to reboot it, still no sim card detected, I need to shutdown and re insert the simcards in order to fix it

Anyone got the same problem ?

Hi, excellent OS.
I'm using it (on a 2nd phone), for about 3 days and no bug. Ok, I accept, I don't play games, but everything else for me is working just fine.

All I would like, is the ringing volume and youtube volume louder.
Does anyone know how to do this?

Flashed this ROM first time...latest version.
ROM is very fast and responsive. Until now, faced just 1 "problem" for me. When work/look/setup something on phone, battery drain is very fast. Much, much faster than MIUI. Almost 1% per 1 minute.
And over night, from 22:45-05:40...on plane mode, battery lost 9%. Tooo much. MIUI lost about 1-2%.
Did not tried anything special...just setup phone and tried few apps...will know more in next 2 days :)

So...for now, except battery drain, all work as it should.

I don't think is possible. OTA I mean...
I also looked for this option and did not find it.
Anyway, if you want the latest build, you could always download it from AOKP and flash it with TWRP.

I agree. Battery drain is pretty big.
Unfortunately, I gave the phone as a gift and I can't reinstall MIUI.

Anyway, AOKP is fluid, phone signal is very good, internet connection also and for the battery problem... it can be charged how often you want.
So, I believe this is just a little inconvenience...

As battery life normally is totally different to any user I cannot confirm as my phone is having power for around 4 days with this Rom including using Facebook, WhatsApp, listening to music and phone. It's always a matter of how you use your phone and what kind of apps are installed.

    Good news,

    I have already applied to you as an official, soon we started the nightlies for Redmi 3.

    You can check here.
    Clean flashed the rom about a hour. No camera errors.
    Very fast and smooth at first sight. Was on RR 7 before this.
    QS tiles can be edited. Didn't try substratum themes yet.
    Restored titanium backup without any issues.
