Atleast Xiaomi provides great hardware at the least price! So what if they do not release source code for nougat...our die-hard developers and enthusiasts are ready to take on the challenge and build from scratch a even better ROM than what MIUI has done so far!

So true.

Even though Xiaomi might never release Nougat for Kenzo, I still like my phone. Besides the flashlight I haven't found any bugs and that's a lot better than my previous phone. Also, has anyone tried Viper4Android on this phone?

Any idea if there has been progress on the flashlight issue on the newest nightly which just came out? Unfortunately this is something I use regularly, so still stuck on CM13.

Just flashed the latest LineageOS (20170207) and just checked twice; I can't find the default messenger app for texting. Is anyone else seeing the same issue?

Edit: Never mind, a clean flash of LineageOS alone (no Gapps Aroma) and there it is. Something must've gone wrong.

Lost my IMEI numbers after flashing this rom.

I do not know what wrong, I did there when I was flashing this rom. But, now I can't find any IMEI numbers on my phone when dialing *#06#. It is showing blank under IMEI. Please someone help me to solve this problem. Due to that, I can't use my sim cards.

Have you flashed the correct firmware package and modem for your device? Eg. if you have Kate, did you flash the Kate or Kenzo firmware?

Also, go to the LineageOS Thread, this one is pretty much dead now since everyone moved over to LOS14.1.


Cyanogenmod is closed down. Servers are down. Moderators should close this thread once and for all.

I just want to say that This LOS is amazingly working. Smooth Astonishing battery life, No Bug, No Crash.
For my Usage (Email, Messaging, Phone and some web wandering. ), this ROM is perfect.

    XDA:DevDB Information
    CyanogenMod 14 for kenzo, ROM for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

    Source Code: https://github.com/CyanogenMod

    ROM OS Version: 7.x Nougat
    ROM Kernel: Linux 3.10.x

    Version Information
    Status: Nightly

    Created 2016-09-13
    Last Updated 2017-04-07
    Supported Firmware:

    Download: https://goo.gl/ZWTA7X

    Must read before flashing the firmware: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=69940129&postcount=2108

    Note: It is the firmware CyanogenMod supports and all users are expected to be on this very firmware. So it's mandatory that you flash this firmware via TWRP if you're newly installing CM.
    You don't need to reflash this everytime you update you CyanogenMod build.

    There's some news as well,
    I recently merged Mi Max (hydrogen) support to CM as well, so here's the thing, device tree repos are now shared.

    Device Tree(s):
    android_device_xiaomi_msm8956-common: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_xiaomi_msm8956-common/tree/cm-14.1 (Gerrit)

    android_device_xiaomi_kenzo: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_xiaomi_kenzo/tree/cm-14.1 (Gerrit)

    PS: New changes are on gerrit and not yet merged.

    Kernel Tree:
    android_kernel_xiaomi_msm8956: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_kernel_xiaomi_msm8956/tree/cm-14.1
    Note: It is a unified kernel for both Mi Max and Redmi Note 3.

    So I request to test the new build as I have rebased the kernel and kenzo has a few code changes on kernel sides as well.
    I have been using it and haven't found anything broken or something. Still I request to test it as it is most likely the last unofficial build from me before enabling cm-14.1 nightlies for the device. So just want to make sure everything is "okay" for nightlies.
    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues.

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    Q)OH MY,.. CRASHES!?
    A)This is a very early build of CyanogenMod running nougat and things are still WIP.
    You may experience number of crashers here and there. These will be get fixed with time.

    Q) Is VoLTE supported?
    A) No, we don't have it working with new M modem from Xiaomi.

    Q) Is Goodix FP supported?
    A) No. I have a FPC device and is hard for me get it work without the device with Goodix FP. Maybe, M kernel release (updated goodix fp driver) for kenzo in future might fix it.

    Q) Where are Developer options?
    A) Go to Settings > About phone, and press five times on Build number.

    Q) How can I enable root access?
    A) Go to Settings > Developer options > Root access, and enable it for apps, adb or both.

    Q) I don't like superuser icon in statusbar, can I install SuperSU?
    A) Yes.

    Q) How do I update GApps? (Also useful if you have GApps related problems).
    A) Reboot to recovery. Wipe System, Cache and Dalvik Cache. Install ROM + GApps. (Yes, without rebooting). Reboot.

    B]A)[/B] Flash the supported firmware linked in Post #2.
    First cm-14.1 official nightly

    Download: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/get/jenkins/188157/cm-14.1-20161205-NIGHTLY-kenzo.zip

    Also I recommend people to use firmware from latest MIUI.
    Issues like fp, cellular network related stuffs (not talking of VOLTE here) are because you using some old or "not going inline with cm setup" firmware.
    I'll upload fw zip which will contain fw from MIUI 6.11.24 zip as soon as I get access to my lappy :v

    Note: About VoLTE, I sure got it working with old lp modem way back (https://www.twitter.com/iamparthbhatia/status/789549745660243968)
    But that was with old lollipop NON-HLOS which I won't ship/recommend people to use it. Simply because it don't go in line with current M blobs and has issues. Yes, issues.
    VoLTE don't work with new MIUI modems not sure why, reason I haven't uploaded by VOLTE commits.

    Camera, yes I am aware of it. M blobs do not go well on nougat due to changes in Android code base. Either N blobs or (maybe) some workaround can fix it. I'll look into camera if possible.

    Thank you for all your support.
