Hello Mi Fans
Today, I'm here to share with you another custom ROM for our Kenzo, that is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Bootleggers ROM is an aftermarket firmware based on Ground Zero Open Source Project (GZOSP) and brings custom features with the most useful apps on your device. Let's take a look at the ROM and also I'll be providing a step by step guide on how to flash the ROM on your device. The ROM is being developed by XDA Senior Member Dinosnore. All the credits for this ROM goes to the developer. Now let's get started.
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.
You are choosing to make these modifications on your device
and if you point a finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

1. Unlocked Bootloader(how to unlock bootloader)
2. Custom Recovery (Download latest TWRP from here)
3. Download latest BootleggersROM based on Android 8.1 from here.
4. Download GApps zip from here. (ARM 64 - Android 8.1)
5. Backup your data before proceeding.

How to Flash
1. Power off your device. After powering off, boot into recovery mode by pressing and holding Power and Volume Up buttons together.
2. Go to Wipe  - Advanced Wipe, from there check Dalvik / ART Cache, System, Data, Internal Storage and Cache. Then Swipe to Wipe
3. Then again go to Wipe, tap Format Data and type yes (You can't skip this due to new encryption system and your internal memory will be formatted so don't forget to do a backup)
4. Now tap on Install, choose the ROM zip file and swipe to confirm flash.
5. Flash the downloaded Gapps zip file.
6. Then Wipe Cache and Dalvik.
7. Reboot to system.
Note: First Boot may take up to 10-15 minutes. Stay Calm.

  • This ROM is packed with some custom wallpaper, ringtones, and fonts, to bring to your device into a more fresh look, also with a selection of apps and header packs, using the stability and compatibility of GZOSP.
  • ROM Logos
  • QS Rows and Columns
  • Scroll on small QS
