Hello Mi Fans,
Welcome back to Custom ROM Class. After a long gap, I am here with a new Custom ROM “Evolution X ROM” based on Android Pie for Redmi Note 4.

Note: Take a complete backup of your device before flashing. I shall not be held responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, and others. Try this at your own risk.

  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • TWRP Custom Recovery: Download
  • Evolution X ROM based on Android Pie: Download
  • Backup all your personal data

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 Evolution X 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 peek 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, Restart the device and you can add more options. 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 the same as Stock ROM.

  • Home Screen setting is the same as Stock ROM. You will find the following options:

  • Notification dots: You can control the notification settings.
  • At A Glance: Tap this enable/disable; Calendar events, Upcoming flight information, and Traffic information.
  • Add icon to Home screen: With this enabled, a new shortcut/icon will be added to your home screen every time you install a new application.
  • Display Google app: Turn this on, and you'll see the Google app icon to the left of your display on the home screen.
  • Display app suggestions: Enable this to get application suggestions at the top of your app list.
  • Allow Home screen rotation: With this enabled your home screen will rotate between portrait and widescreen when you tilt the device.
  • Change icon shape: You can change the shape of the app icon.
  • About: Tap this to see information about your device's launcher. This is the same as viewing an app's info through the settings app.

  • 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 will take about 6 GB of space including Google Apps.

Battery Performance:
The Battery menu includes an icon reflecting current battery life, and screen-on-time is on the main menu as well.
The battery was drained from 100-15% in 12 hours after heavy usage and screen time of 4 hours and 48 minutes.

Adaptive Brightness and Battery Manager
  • Adaptive Brightness: This feature optimizes the 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).

Additional Features
  • You will find many new features for notification panel like Gaming Mode, Smart Pixels, etc.
  • Evolution X Settings: To customize your ROM according to you

ROM Information
  • Android OS Version: Android 9 Pie
  • Based On: AOSP
  • Security Patch Level: 1 August 2019

I used this ROM for approximately 3 weeks and I liked the ROM because of UI extra settings by Evolution X ROM. It is really very smooth as compared to other ROMs.
As I am using this phone from 2.5 years and according to this the ROM is giving an awesome battery backup.
The best part of this ROM is that Camera2Api is enabled by default.
