This ROM was uploaded by the user Guffeogco when I requested a link on a XDA Nubia related thread. All the porting and updating credits belongs to Yayanan. You can find his original post HERE. I'm using it as my daily driver, so far so good.

Android version: 6.0.1 (Marshmallow)

You can find screenshots of it at Yayanan original thread -> HERE

What works

RIL, mobile data, and every connection related stuff

Camera, recording, et cetera

Everything else

What doesn't works (What will probably upset you)

Well, you might feel a little stressed on some h*cked up chinese apps. You can remove them by using any Root Uninstaller app.

The stock keyboard is a total mess. I recommend using Gboard (personally, of course)

If you're an avid Instagram user, you'll probably complain about how MIUI deals with IG's new UI. The status bar disappears, beacuse MIUI thinks the app will contrast with white. I guess this can be fixed with some Xposed app, but I personally don't mind that.


This is a beta ROM, which means that something will certainly not work very well. The good thing about this release is that everything is close to stable. However, Yayanan didn't uploaded a new release quite a while ago, so don't expect a good maintenance of this ROM.

    Just in case someone complains about it: I'm not accepting donations. NeedROM requires an donation e-mail in order to post a ROM. Well, if any of your kind souls wish to donate some spare cash for this project, I will transfer it to the maintainer.

    Is this Rom a Buggy one from XDA ?? I flashed it and as soon as you install some app on it total FC starts :D everything lags and phone restarts itself.

      Hmmm, I don't know which ROM at XDA you're refering to. Anyway, this is a mirror of a chinese port. I tested and used it as my daily driver for a couple of days, and I haven't dealt with any of the complains you mentioned. Neverthless, I do assume that this can happen with anyone because, as I said on the description, it's a BETA version of MIUI, so things might not work as usual. Try to dirty flash it one more time by formatting all the data except for the SD card and see if those errors will persists. If yes, try another ROM and expect for a new release by the maintainer (which I only know his nickname 'Yayanan').

    this works pretty good! Root management is included, it's a dev version.
    You can remove most chinese apps from /system/apps and /system/prov-apps, make sure not to remove the MIUI market, it will not boot after.
    After cleaning up, it's fast, seems to have good battery life and it's stable. pretty happy here.

    Is there a way to add OTA to this? 
    Is there a way to disable the smart assistant?

    It works with cardboard to by the way, meaning the proper buildprops are set.

    Awesome ROM, thanks!

      I do get an occasional reboot by the way

      Great to read, openminded! Glad you're enjoying it :) Consider taking a look at the maintainer's thread at bbs.cn to follow any further updates (as I'm doing occasionally).


      Thanks for the tips and review!

      Q: Is there a way to add OTA to this? 

      A: Well, not yet. But I'm following the maintainer's thread to further updates.

      Q: Is there a way to disable the smart assistant?

      A: Mmm, maybe! I didn't tried any tool or such, but I suppose there's must be some toggle for it.

    openminded: about the reboot, I only experienced it when I removed some system apps, but then, everything started to work as usual :)

    you can not pass the registration process. Hangs on a cloud.

    Does this version include Neovision and advanced camera features? Is something I am very interested in.

    • 03/23/2017


      Ok, I tested by myself. NOT WORKING. You can open camera and take pictures, but if you want to open special features as Slow Motion, Star Track and others, camera hangs and stop. What a pity. If you know some tips to solve this problem just post or PM me.

      On the other hand, Infrared app is included and works as well as FM Radio. Other than that, system seems to be stable, fluent and smooth.
