Xiaomi Redmi Note has tons of excellent features and customizations and the only drawback of this device is the lack of stock android experience. Many users are not satisfied by the user interface of  MIUI 6/7/8. For them, I bring you the custom ROM based on Android N 7.1 which is a replica of CM 14.1 which no longer exists.This ROM brings a lot of new functionalities and changes to the android platform. You get the complete access to customize your android device to your own liking. Before flashing the custom ROM, I recommend you to follow each step very carefully. There are many new features and advancements in this custom ROM. Let’s begin with the installation process.

  2. Install TWRP Custom Recovery as it allows to flash ROMs and other zip files.
