As there is no official Cyanogenmod nor i'm a developer, i'm only created this thread for those who uses my builds.
This builds are based on https://github.com/CyanogenMod and the Mi5 Device Tree from https://github.com/Mi5Devs/android_device_xiaomi_gemini

Normally my builds are created daily, it can be that there are no or not important changes in Device Tree or Cyanogenmod, then there is no new build created. To view changes, please visit the Mi5Devs Commits ;)

Current Build: cm-13.0-20160726-UNOFFICIAL-gemini
URL: https://store.shade.sh/mi5/

Any updates for the finger print issue ?

Great rom, been using the 20-Jul build for a week now and it works flawlessly.. only had trouble with the fingerprint sensor, at first it was completely missing, but got it back and working by flashing MIUI8 before flashing this rom.. it seems that it needs some files from MIUI so avoid wiping system, although this may be fixed already in new builds, I can't say..

Anyway great rom great work, updating to latest build.. thanks again developers and builder!

Yes this issue should be fixed by the Devs of the Device Tree already.
You're welcome.

It is! I wiped the system partition and it worked flawlessly!

Thanks a million for providing new builds! :)

BTW @shade, is it possibl to compile this with UBERTC :confused: https://plus.google.com/+ChetKener/posts/YzMJEkzPQgp

Here is info how to compile with a specific toolchain http://forum.xda-developers.com/chef-central/android/guide-switching-to-custom-toolchain-t2927662

I know you're probably busy but if you find it interesting or fun to add UBER Toolchain to your build i would gladly buy you are beer or two :)

In return i could give a tip about my app called Auto Flasher. It was featured in XDA Developers TV

I'll look into it, its always fun to try something new / different!
But don't expect it the next hours or days. Indeed i'm a bit busy at the moment (Self study CCNA is only a small part of it :fingers-crossed:)

How is the picture quality compared to stock? I know from the Sony cm builds that they are much worse compared to stock firmware...

I feel that the picture quality is the same. Actually I kind of prefer the cm camera app since it has more options and is easier to configure. I experienced some lag on one of the builds but it seems to be fixed now.
The reason why the difference is massive on Sony phones is because of the bravia engine which is proprietary and cannot be integrated into CM or AOSP. This should not be an issue on the Mi 5.

Thanks for the reply. Hopefully I will receive my mi5 pro within the next two weeks so I can try.

Dear shade.sh,

Thanks for the great ROM. It is like oases in the deserts.

I am having a problems with wifi mac address which keep on changing every time I reboot the phone. I tried to use the apps to use my old mac address number which is registered to the office network but it fails to connect.

Please advice how to overcome the random wifi mac address.

Thanks.

What version have you flashed? Did you already tried to flash the updated firmware files (See here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=67874556&postcount=577)
