Do custom ROMs support Mi remote? I want to play around with a redmi note 5a prime, bootloader unlocked already.

PS: Any idea of a stable custom recovery and ROM?

Flash another kernel to fix the first error.

For the second question. I don't know because I don't play COD or PUBG. Ask in the Redmi 7 group.

Apologies o.

I just downloaded some kernels and corvus rom for my phone version (Redmi 5 plus) and planning to flash it in a few hours.

But I'd like to know some things first.

Do I flash the kernel first or the ROM first?

Is there a difference between gapps ROM and normal ROM?

And how will I know if my phone needs the gapps ROM or not?

I know my questions look silly but I'm still a novice learning the dark arts of ROM flashing cry


Would have asked in the telegram group but I'm scared the admins may take offence and ban/mute me for asking these questions. cry

Flash d Corvus ROM first. If you don't see Google apps then u need to flash Pico or nano gapp. U can then flash kernel finally. Why do you want to change kernel dt comes with the corvus rom?
Tip: ROM without gapp /vanilla <1gb size
ROM with Gapp >1gb size

Hi guys,

I bought my Redmi 8a about three months ago.I recently noticed something.When I newly bought the phone, the speaker sounds like a good MP3 player.

Those in far distance are able to hear music playing from my phone while those with the phone always have to reduce the sound to half volume in order to not turn deaf.

But nowadays, even at full volume it doesn't sound loud enough.I have tried all I could do but the sound still remain the same.

Always use the search bar in your device's telegram group. Most, if not all of your questions have already been answered there.

You can also use the #notes to find your query.



Use the kernel that came with your phone. But scan through your device group to see if some other kernel are preferred.

And I'll advise you to flash the ROM with gapps.



Spend more time in your device group. That's where you'll learn more about your device

1. Flash ROM before kernel
2. Gapps ROM - ROMs that came with Google apps inbuilt
Normal/vanilla ROMs- ROMs without Google apps. You'll have to flash gapps yourself.
3. It depends on you, if you want to use a phone playstore and the likes, you can flash the normal ROM only.

As an addendum, you should not tamper with a kernel unless the kernel that ships with the ROM ain't serving you. As a newbie in flashing, that should not be what you should be concerned about for now.

If you want to flash a ROM, if the Rom is a gapps ROM.

Flash the ROM, flash magisk and reboot and set up your phone.

If the Rom is a normal ROM (non gapps), flash the ROM, flash gapps, flash magisk, reboot and set up your phone. Simple as ABC.
