What Is OmniROM?


Code:
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
 */

Warning!! make sure you have a good charge in your battery

Steps to install:
1. Using TWRP, flash ROM zip
2. Flash gapps and SuperSU

ROM Review

As per my usage here is my review...!!

- Rom is super smooth. There is not even 0.000001% lag while usage :D
- Can't tell battery life right now. But still I observed its good.
- MIUI sound mods included in this rom which is really a bonus amd excellent work.



Things which I miss and expecting in rom

- Need dt2s option for lockscreen.
- Like someone said button remapping should be there.
- More veriety of tiles are needed. Basic tiles like screenshot and reboot is not present.
- And video recordings bug which I just just hate is still present in this rom. Slow motion still not working. May be problem with sources that used to build the rom.

Anyway overall its a great rom :D Superb work.

    Wow...wow...wow...!!! :D Just yesterday I rrad news that qualcomn will not release graphics driver for snapdragon 800/801/series which is necessary for Naugat. So I thought mi3 developmwnt has stopped forever. And just today here is your post :D

    I just want to ask you that without those vulcan API android N will be smooth on mi3???

    Vulkan is only compulsory for passing CTS. And adreno 3xx series has no hw support for vulkan.. so no drivers. We dont need vulkan for funcitonality.
