Hello Mi Fans,
Welcome back to Custom ROM Class. I am back with a new Custom ROM "Superior OS" based on Android Pie for Redmi Note 4.
Superior OS is an AOSP based custom ROM with some minimal features to fulfill the user's demands nowadays.

Have a complete backup before flashing

Try this at your own risk

  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • TWRP Custom Recovery Installed: Download
  • Superior OS ROM based on Android Pie: Download
  • GApps: Download
  • Backup all your personal data
Flash the ROM and GApps simultaneously so that you will not face any problem

To know the process for Unlocking the Bootloader, installing Custom Recovery and flash the ROM, you can read the threads given below:

User Interface:
There is no major difference between Stock ROM UI and Pixel Experience ROM UI.
  • The lock screen and the home screen is also the same as the Stock ROM, you will not see any major changes.

  • The notification panel shade has become translucent giving a slight peak of what’s behind it. But it appears a little distracting. In the notification panel, you will find a Gaming Mode option which is similar to Game Booster. On the left side of the Home screen, you will see the news by Google.

  • The Recent Tab is now redesigned. Prior versions of Android featured a vertically oriented screen, meaning you had to swipe down to select a previous app and you couldn’t really see what was going on in most of the screens. With the new system, app screens are arranged horizontally, so you swipe left and right now to navigate through them. And there’s no overlapping, so you can see the whole screen. There are other changes too: Below the recent app screens, you’ll find a search bar and a set of suggested apps, so the multitasking screen is more useful than ever, even without the biggest change in Android P.

  • When you press the power button for a long time you will see more options like Power off and Restart the device. The volume button is also redesigned, it is shifted to the right side (near the top).

  • Quick access from an application shortcut is pretty sweat. Instead of having to go into the app and tapping through to get to the desired function, you can get there much quicker by simply long pressing the shortcut from the home screen, then selecting the option you want. Only certain options and functions are available with this method, so you'll have to experiment a bit to get an idea. The app tray is same as Stock ROM.

  • Home Screen setting is different from Stock ROM. You will find the following options:
  • Theme: General Appearance Settings
  • Desktop: Customize the desktop
  • Home widget: At the top of your Home screen
  • Dock: Customize the dock
  • App drawer: Customize the app drawer
  • Search: Customize the search experience
  • Gesture: Customize the home screen gestures
  • Lawnstep: Customize the recent apps screen

  • The Settings screen has also redesigned. Also, the search option at the top of the screen, unlike the button present earlier, has now blown into a full-fledged search bar. It would have looked more streamlined if the search bar had rounded corners just like it’s there on the home screen. The icons are also colourfull.

System Storage:
This ROM and GApps will take about 8.5 GB of space.

Smart Lock:
You can keep your phone unlocked in some situations, like when your phone is in your pocket or you're near home. When you use Smart Lock, you won't need to unlock with your PIN, pattern, or password. The features you can use depend on your device.
  • On-body detection: You can keep your device unlocked when you're carrying it in your hand, pocket, or bag.
  • Trusted place: You can add a place where the device should be unlocked.
  • Trusted devices: You can keep your phone unlocked whenever it's connected to a trusted device, like a Bluetooth watch or car speaker system.
  • Trusted face: You can have your device unlock when it recognizes your face. After you set a trusted face, every time you turn on your device, it'll look for your face and unlock if it recognizes you.
  • Voice Match: When you say "Ok Google" from a secure lock screen and we're able to recognize your voice, you can ask Google to do things for you, or visit sites, without manually unlocking your device.

Battery Performance:
The Battery menu includes an icon reflecting current battery life, and screen-on-time is on the main menu as well.
Battery performance is good. After using the device, the battery is dropped from 100% to 30% in 11 hours in which 14% of the battery was consumed by Screen.

Adaptive Brightness and Battery Manager
  • Adaptive Brightness: This feature optimizes brightness level for available light. Your screen brightness will automatically adjust to your environment and activities. You can move the slider manually to help adaptive brightness learn your preferences.
  • Battery Manager: Also known as Adaptive Battery. It limits battery for apps that you don't use often. When Battery Manager detects that apps are draining the battery, you'll have the option to restrict these apps. Restricted apps may not work properly and notifications may be delayed.

Digital Welbing
It is designed to help you manage how much time you’re spending on your phone, the multi-pronged effort offers a robust set of tools for tracking and managing your app usage. There are four components: Dashboard (a screen that breaks down how much time you’ve spent on your device), App Timer (which lets you set time limits for individual apps), Do Not Disturb, and Wind Down (which turns on Night Light and Do Not Disturb and fades the screen to grayscale when it’s time to sleep).

ROM Information
  • Android OS Version: Android Pie 9
  • Based on: AOSP
  • Security Patch level: 5 December 2018
  • Team:

I used this ROM for approximately one week and experienced that this ROM is good for those who likes to play heavy games like PUBG in Redmi Note 4. It is very fluent to use.
