Tried on mi 5s on epic rom (based on global miui 9) and again no hope... I am so annoyed about this not being able to use vulkan on my device. Tried tons of different methods and nothing worked so far.
Edit: It actually works it was my mistake I forgot to reset play store.

I am sooo sooo sorry I was wrong, it actually worked. I just forgot to reset google play store and now it works perfectly. Thank you very much.

What does the activator do with the device?And how to know that it is activated by default or needed to be activated? I am currently on epic rom ported by jamflux miui 9 7.11.2

Sir, how to know that it is already activated or needed to be.

Vulkan improves gaming performance of the device, this mod will only work if you have Epic rom based on Nougat not marshmallow.
To check download Aida64 from play store > devices section > it must show as Vulkan device.
Alternatively, vulkan enabled games are unlocked on play store. So if you see em, the activator is installed successfully.

    All current nougat and oreo roms already have Vulkan API drives, but do not come with the API enabled. This happens because the play store knows which devices received the API officially, which is not the case of Redmi Note 3 Pro. Because of this, even with the drives the system does not make full use of the API. For this it is necessary to camouflage the device, turning it into some device that has received the Vulkan officially. Thinking about it, I created this activator that does the simple work of camouflaging the device and turns it into a Galaxy S8+

    After activating the Vulkan API the result is notable in games and applications that support the API.

    Here's how to tell if your device already has the vulkan drivers:
    I downloaded the AIDA64 play store and go to the "Devices" menu and check "Vulkan Device - Adreno (TM) 510". If it appears, your device has the vulkan drivers, now you only need to install my activator! ;) (Check the attached image for how it should appear on AIDA64.)

    If your device does not have the vulkan drivers, simply install them with the mod of the following topic: https://forum.xda-developers.com/redmi-note-3/development/zip-vulkan-api-nougat-roms-t3531655
