Halfbaked MIUI on mi pad, negligible updates, poor memory management, irritating bugs, sluggish gaming performance and boredom of looking at a monotonous user interface made me search for a new rom for miui and although knowing that almost nothing was available for mi pad, i found unofficial cm11 based on kitkat4.4.4 (ahh!!! what else) made by xda's senior member faust93
[ROM][UNOFFICIAL][4.4.4] CyanogenMod 11 + crDroid for Xiaomi MiPad by faust93
here i am not going to explain how did i get it installed because for that you have to visit the xda page mentioned above
the only reason why i am sharing this is to increase the awareness of this rom because this a perfectly working rom many don't know about.
all the credit for this rom goes the xda member faust93. i am only doing non profit sharing work lol.
now till date everything works for me. there is nothing that doesn't work for me
1. memory management has improved a lot imo.
2. games have become lag free especially games like fifa16 and modern combat 5 which i often play.
3. theme support.
4. battery backup has improved imo.
5. no visible lag in the user interface, much lighter than miui.
6. more freedom of customization compared to miui.
7. doesn't get hot anymore.
1. loudness of the speakers have reduced by 15%.
2. front camera has degraded by a little margin.
3. still kitkat
4. auto brightness sometimes doesn't respond to ambient light conditions, happens once in every 2-3 days.
xiaomi has already put mi pad in the coffin and nails are in transit so i guess mi pad is dead for them. after biting dust more than 2 months cm11 is the only thing that made me use my mipad once again. this is second life for mi pad. even resale value of this tablet is pathetic so pump the adrenaline and consume every bit of anything that this tablet has to offer.
In a nutshell this is the best alternative rom for miui.
