CyanogenMod 12.1 for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Snapdragon version

Hi all,

This is a initial WIP CyanogenMod 12.1 for Redmi Note 3. It's a basic initial release and does have some bugs accompanied.

It's kind of usable build for those whom fingerprint doesn't matter

What works ?
  • Camera
  • Audio
  • RIL
  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth
  • Other basic stuff

What doesn't ?
  • Fingerprint
  • Other misc stuff that i might have not tested completely


Cm12.1 for Redmi Note 3 (30/03/2016)

Just a request to users :

Please don't mirror the ROM anywhere, as I need to keep track of downloads. Also avoid posting the direct download link in comments. Please use the download link I have put up in the OP.

Requirements to flash :

  • You need to have a unlocked bootloader to flash this in case anyone is going to flash
  • You need to have TWRP installed after that
  • You also need to wipe data

Thanks for this great work. You have a link to some generic kernel source in the OP (for the Snapdragon chipset) but then you are talking about using the global stable kernel?

Have you looked at using the Qualcomm 'test' AOSP kernel?
As that version has a working kernel and the all the propeitary libs you could need I would imagine (other than a way of configuring the fingerprint reader - it does have a fingerprint service running - but no settings for adding a fingerprint - I see Fingerprint support is only being added to CM13 so we might have to wait ).

I am currently using that ROM (as I don't like MIUI) and can post a list of the /system folder if you are interested.
