Which country are you located? Im in China at the moment. I migh find some cheap spareparts.
Depending on shipping cost me might find a solution :)

I hope you get a screen for him.
This ROM is without a doubt the fastest and most stable for our XIAOMI MI NOTE 2.

So, replacement screens are at about 50€.

But for me it's not worth spend 50 bucks for a phone I don't use, only for development, so I can't do any more here for you guys. Sadly...

    Here's some small answer to your questions or just answer to questions.

    Q: Bootleggers? Why? What does that even mean?
    A: Bootleggers (on a context of toy bootlegs and related stuff) are the people who take an original idea or product and make their own version, obviously on a low-quality way.
    Q: What does the chinese/japanese thing means? I don't get it
    A: According to google (and take the meaning of this with a hundred quotation marks) it means home or family. We want you to use your phone and feel yourself comfortable, and like it, like you'll be at home.
    Q: Can i make Bootleggers stuff like wallpapers, logos and stuff?
    A: Of course, feel free to do it, we will love it. 
    Q: Do you have any Telegram/G+ Group to chat and share stuff of the ROM?
    A: Check the first paragraphs, you'll find it

    Anyway, the same question everytime.
    Which scorpio firmware to use...??
    I always have this doubt, cause the code is not free right? so... how can I see the real thing
    I have to try every single firmware and test the performance? cause sometimes I have the feel that wifi burns with one firmware and with another there is low signal... etc etc.
    Someone can iluminate me? maybe Im saying nonsense, im not in this type of development. Just a lost user...

    I have used same firmware on 4.0 and 4.1 :
