Tested:

- Very fast and smooth. Using Google play store this smoothness is quite noticeable.
- I did not noticed any battery drain, but didn't use it long enough.

- No PT-PT language
- Camera, no focus sound and no video stabilisation option
- Volume control widgets are bugged. Tested several.
- No notifications with tapatalk
- Couldn't test Gravity BOX as always when executing always failed to download or install something and FC
- Why Xposed and WSM Tools? It’s redundant
- Always losing the Xposed Disabler privileges therefore when reboot paid apps, gone...
- Mi-Tools FC at some point of customization
- Root privileges in native app means to give privileges to an app we have to say yes about 5 times

My opinion, very nice rom, especially because it’s so smooth and fast. It’s a pleasure going from one place to another, it’s almost instantly.
You should get rid many of these useless and redundant apps, add PT-PT language, correct the volume issue that causes bug when we try to use a volume widget.
The bugs mentioned for me are enough to uninstall the rom therefore didn’t test further, like GPS, Bluetooth, tethering, etc,

Nevertheless, nice try and I hope you keep the work and share with us to test it. I certainly will
