Xiaomi’s well known famous developer Ivan’s launched his latest work Xiaomi Mi3 Lollipop AOSP Rom,
So the great news is that Xiaomi Mi3 is now going to taste the best Android OS yet available LOLLIPOP 5.0 and best part is that its really looks nice and great.
As we all know that Lollipop 5.0 is Google’s latest Android OS and its really cool with its Material Design, and it is also fast in processing.
So after flashing Lollipop in MI3 we find it very fast and elegant, So well designed and very nicely finished, but the problem which is in it are only few bugs :
Xiaomi Mi3 Lollipop Rom Bug’s :
- Video cannot be saved ( Video issue can be solved by Installing One Plus One Camera app or by Lenevo Device Camera App )
- NFC does not work
- Random auto reboot
But Instead of that this is best rom yet available for MI3w with Lollipop functionality.
As XIAOMI MI3 didn’t get its kernel source yet so developer’s getting problems in building rom’s easily , but the good news is that Xiaomi announces that they are going to launch MI3 kernel source in 2015 Q1, so this is a great news for Xiaomi lover’s and Xiaomi also announces that for India they are going to provide kernel source for each device within 3 months of the arrival of that product.
As Ivan developed this Rom in his spare time so it is not perfect yet but Mi3w (WCDMA) users you can try this Rom and taste Lollipop.
Currently Xiaomi Developer’s are working to bring MIUI 6 on Lollipop Platform and soon we will going to get it also but the date and time is not fixed so lets hope and pray.
