Update regarding HMnote8Pro MTK [begonia] support:
- We dropped support for HMnote8Pro MTK [begonia] due to a lot of bricks caused by installing TWRP or Magisk or any other mods.. MTK does not allow to boot to Fastboot if something "goes wrong" and users are forced to flash images via SPFlash Tool EDL mode which is locked by Xiaomi for few authorized accounts only.. so for safety of users, we will not release any ROMs for this device..
PS: We do not recommend buying MTK devices if you want to use our ROMs..

Noticed improved fingerprint reaction time.. It is faster to open.
Is it the same at your side?
Seems like it. But a new update with cache and dalvik cleared might make an impression like that.(Also just cleaned the screen :) ) Will report in a day or two.

Most weird bug fixed on mi 10 pro (ebay and some other apps won't open, can't download themes or xiaomi store apps....).

The only bug now is the sms app (which is still in messy order and can't sync all old SMS from cloud). I think this is the specific bug of Android 11.

Good rom, thanks a lot! from my mi 9t.
(Feel more speed on my fingerprint sensor. AMAZING JOB GUYS)

YouTube floating windows are still having troubles, doesn't work, but in previous updates they had corrected it and it worked.

Suggestion: Steps counter on always on display of SUPERWALLPAPERS.

Mi 10 pro
Perfect, but two issues which I can say now.
- sms issue is operational very bothering. Can't see the coming sms since it keep the sms in some strange order - I installed for now 3rd app which works fine.
- twrp - The lock password to is not recognized as the device encryption, so I can't see the file system. I have to download on a pc, change to recovery, transfer the file and then to flush.
