CyanogenMod 11 for Xiaomi Mi3
Although this phone sold like hotcakes it starved for developer attention for a long time, thanks to Xiaomi’s secret kernel recipe which they publish after the phone celebrates its 1st birthday without valuing whatever a law states. The phone sold out like what can be said one month in India. Fortunately, I managed to get my piece at the first flash sale over at flipkart Me and Qiwu Huang, a developer who works for Xiaomi have managed to bring an almost bug-free build of this popular after-market ROM to the device despite the in-availability of the sources. We have made use of pre-built kernel binary which is kind of a ‘hole’ here which will be filled with integration of kernel sources which are allegedly supposed to come out this December. If we talk about the hardware functionality currently 99% stuff works as it should whereas the 1% involves broken Pedometer, Pressure sensor. The build is currently not suitable for daily use (can be called a ‘beta’) because of its instability because it reportedly undergoes reboots when you put it on sleep. I am currently working to get rid of this after which I believe this can be a daily driver(and so can be the ROMs based off this). We have made available our builds to the community for further testing on xda-developers forum which you can find the link of below. For those who are willing to sacrifice some battery life can try a small trick to workaround the rebooting issues. Fire up terminal emulator app–>Options–>Take wakelock. This will restrict the phone to sleep, let me know in the comments section below how this trick goes for you. Please use Q/A section of the xda thread in case of any questions, problems etc. Hit the dev thread only if you have something to help fix anything in the build.
