MIUI Epic ROM v6.8.25 for Redmi Note 3 Snapdragon

MIUI 8 Epic Kenzo

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm Snapdragon variant aka Kenzo is one of MIUI devices getting MIUI 8 Global Stable update earlier than any other. However, the MIUI v8.0.1.0 Global Stable for Kenzo is still based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. Luckily, Epic developer team has developed custom MIUI 8 ROM based on its Developer build version 6.8.25 and it is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow already. The ROM features all awesomeness of MIUI 8 minus all Chinese apps, bloatware, and ads. Moreover, it has been also rooted with SuperSU. However, this is not for Kenzo with locked bootloader.

How to install

  1. Unlock your phone bootloader officially.
  2. Download and install TWRP custom recovery on your phone.
  3. Download the ROM package file above.
  4. Boot into TWRP Recovery.
  5. Wipe Dalvik, Cache, Data, System but DO NOT WIPE USERDATA.
  6. Flash / install the ROM as usual via TWRP’s Install menu.

The developer said that first time booting into normal mode you’ll see one – two reboots. It may also take longer than usual (approx. 15-21 minutes) which is normal. Just make sure you never interrupt the booting process. You may also need to read original thread at HTCMania community to find out more information and may be getting support.
