This looks very promising! Do I need root privileges to flash it? Would it be enough to flash your ROM following your steps having only a Mi6 with unlocked bootloader?

Thanks for your time!

You just need to fastboot flash a twrp that is made for Oreo 8.1
It will be labelled as compatible

8.1 had a different decryption method so older twrps won't work

@Dobsgw : Could you please tell us how is this Rom compared to AtomicOs?

Just a few different customisations in the crDroid menu compared to the Labs menu.
Otherwise all good Oreo.
I didn't like Oreo at first but its really grown on me and I cant face Nougat now (which I loved).

The only issue I had was 50% battery drain overnight but I haven't fiddled enough to know why it happened.
Battery stats just said "phone idle"
So I changed firmware to 8.1.25 (suggested in the OP). I had updated to 8.2.1 which can be hit and miss from xiaomi.
And changed some apps to be more battery friendly.
So I'll charge up again and see how it goes.
I also updated to the latest version from this morning so verevka might have tweaked it a bit.
It says deep sleep is working which I believe because during the time I was using the phone battery wasn't draining quickly. Just overnight

I really hope he sticks with crDroid because its fantastic.
Still in beta though so can't fault the battery.
I'm gonna get logs if it happens again

@Verevka deep sleep is not working on latest build.
Are there any logs I can get you that will help?

I will try and use the Rom for the whole day, but I will need to use a ROM with working sleep so please let me know asap if you're on XDA

I've also enabled force doze on Greenify to see if it will force it to deep sleep.
Probably won't work but worth a try I guess

I had the same issue, it cannot go to sleep.
Battery drain fault could be also from the overall high temperatures.

    My brief report .. latest build and last global firmware, NFC - Off, L-speed tweaks (battery, processor, etc.)
    From 100% - 15% (my apology, I did not do screenshot).. more than 24 hours of use, almost 8 hours of screen-on time. 3% drop overnight, no lags, without crashing any applications, very stable, miui cam work decent (although I'm a layman for photography), gboard works without delay (I'm not sure why .. suddenly it started working as it should) .. quite a good rom, I hope for further development.
