Hey, Mi Fans,
Welcome back to Custom ROM Class! Everyone around you was using Android 10 but you might be stuck with the Android Nougat but here what custom ROM helps you to experience the latest version of Android. So, here I am with Derpfest OS ROM based on Android 10 for a 3 years old budget performance device Redmi 4. Let’s review it!

Disclaimer
"I am not responsible for anything that may happen to your phone as a result of installing custom ROMs and/or kernels. you do so at your own risk and take the responsibility upon yourself.patience is much needed here"

Prerequisites:
  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • TWRP image: Download
  • Gapps: Download here (ARM64-10.0-Nano)
  • TWRP Custom Recovery: TWRP_ Santoni.zip (27.19 MB, Downloads: 170)
  • Derpfest OS ROM based on Android 10: Download
  • Backup all your data (including the system partitions)

To unlock the Bootloader, Install Custom Recovery and flash the ROM. Read the following threads for a step-by-step process.

Review
User interface:
This ROM is purely bloatware-less even if it won't have any primary apps like a clock and calculator, you have to install them manually from the playstore as per your liking. The Lawnchair launcher is the default with pixel launcher features. The glance feature on the home screen is quite interesting and useful.

Gaming Performance:
This device can manage the low graphics-intensive game smoothly but heavier games like PUBG and Call of duty there will be some frame drops yet it's playable. This time I had tried the Real Racing 3 game, it was working flawlessly without any hiccups and struggles.

Full-HD support on Youtube:
Previously the device playback quality was restricted to 720p, but now with this ROM, you can even play videos at 1080p. Practically there won't be much of a difference as the device has an HD display but still it's slightly better.

Antutu Benchmark:
With the Antutu test, it scored about 72889 points and defeated 1% of users with the same device.

Edge Lighting:
Are you amazed at the K20 series beautiful pulse notification? You can get the stunning edge lighting feature with this ROM.

Xiaomi Parts:
Under these settings you have some useful features to make use of the hardware like haptic feedback, display color calibration with some presets, Thermal settings, Mi sound enhancer to make use of the DIRAC audio.

Charging Animation:
Another unique feature of this ROM is the Charging animation while dock your phone for charging and also there is a straight bar with charging details which gives you a better idea about the charging rate.

ROM Information
  • Android OS Version: Android 10
  • Based On: AOSP
  • Security Patch Level: 5 February 2020
  • Non-Treble version


Conclusion
This ROM gave well-balanced battery life and performance. Most Smoothest ROM I have used so far. I was using this device as my secondary device for listening to songs and watching youtube videos. The single charge lasted for about 5 days with my minimal usage. The one place I was impressed with the audio quality which is way better and louder through the 3.5mm jack output. It's the best ROM to use it as your daily driver as I never faced any random reboot or freeze in this one week of testing.
